A Taj Mahal for your kitty? Yes! Cats are drawn to boxes like catnip, perhaps even more so. Dutch company Poopy Cat made a whole business out of this phenomenon. But these aren’t just regular ole cardboard boxes and feline play houses. This cool cat furniture was modeled after famous buildings such as the White House, the Eiffel Tower, the Kremlin and St. Basil’s Basilica. In all, there are seven iconic international landmarks.
The project, dubbed Landmark, is currently a Kickstarter campaign, and we have no doubt it will succeed. The cat shelters are super sturdy, made out of recycled cardboard in two durable layers of different flutes, and easily assembled in circa 5 minutes.
The boxes, while being cat magnets merely by being boxes, have additional little cat play elements. For instance, the Eiffel Tower has a little elevator on a rope to claw. We’re very fond of the Sphinx. After all, as the designers point out, it is “the largest single-stone statue in the world. Although some people still believe it resembles a lion, we know better!”
If you love the idea of your prince or princess taking up residence in a home that befits their royal status, you too can purchase a Poopy Cat house.
“Poopy Cat was created in 2013 with a disposable litter box, followed by a number of cardboard ‘blocks’ that you can connect to each other and thus build a true palace for your cat. After that, the idea of cardboard ‘blocks’ was further extended to the Landmarks. This concept recreates a number of major world-famous landmarks as cardboard play and sleeping places for your cat, including the Russian Kremlin and the American White House.”
“The Poopy Cat items can now be ordered on Petsplace.nl and are available in our stores. We have the following Landmarks that can be your cat’s play paradise: The Kremlin, the White House, the Sphinx and the Maya Temple.”
