Here’s a fun new product that lets you create a customized climbing structure for your cats. It’s the Catty Stacks, designer cat house system. These super strong corrugated cardboard boxes can be connected in three dimensions to create all sorts of configurations for climbing, perching, playing, napping, and hiding. The nice folks at Catty Stacks sent us a set to test out and they were an instant hit. Here are Simba and Dee checking out the new play station:
The boxes ship flat and are really easy to set-up, just unfold and insert some tabs into slots and you’re ready to go. The special corner design allows you to clip the boxes together (clips are included) to create a nice sturdy structure. Once the boxes are clipped together, you can lift the whole stack to move it (just make sure there aren’t any cats inside!)
Holes on the side of the boxes allow kitties to enter and exit and connect from one box to the next. When two boxes are clipped together, you can remove a larger portion of the side panel to create a more spacious inner lounge area. When boxes are stacked on top of each other, the vertical access holes are staggered, making it easy for kitty to get her footing as she climbs up through the boxes. The thing I’m most impressed with is the strength of the double thickness cardboard. This is some of the strongest cardboard I’ve seen, so the Catty Stacks should last a long time.
There are a number of accessories you can purchase as add-ons for your Catty Stacks, including a crawl tube that connects between two boxes, special felt pillows for extra comfort, and an animation wand that connects easily to one of the accessory points and has a clip on the end to attach kitty’s favorite toy. Here’s Theo getting ready to attack the dangling toy:
The boxes come in light pink, chocolate brown, sky blue, pistachio green, and white, all printed with 100% soy-based inks. The cardboard used is also 100% recycled and recyclable. You can choose any combination of colors when ordering the boxes in kits ranging from one box for $17.99 US, to ten boxes for $129.99 US.
