Hi guys! Ernie here. Most of us cats love boxes. It’s a fact. Cats and boxes go together like peanut butter and jelly…night and day…chips and salsa. You get the idea. If you put an empty box out and there’s a cat around, it won’t stay empty for long. But why should us cats settle for boring brown cardboard boxes?
And humans…you know your cats love boxes but you don’t want those ugly brown things cluttering up your house. It’s embarrassing when guests come over. You can’t wait to put them in the recycle bin, right? But why deprive your cats from something they love?
That’s where Cat in the Box comes in. Dawn Fontaine, the owner of Cat in the Box and a life-long animal lover, came up with the brilliant idea of designing unique, clever and fun but functional boxes for cats. Ones that you wouldn’t mind leaving out in your home all the time.
Dawn contacted us recently and asked if we’d like to try out one of the boxes she designed. Of course we meowed a loud YES! Check out the box she sent us. Now what could be more fun than playing in a GIANT MILK CARTON?!?
This milk carton is made of sturdy cardboard and looks just like the real thing. The detail is amazing…the only thing missing is the milk. It’s about 26 inches tall and 12 ½ inches wide and deep. There’re 3 cutout holes…measuring 6 ½ inches…for getting in and out of the box. It’s put together with hook-and-loop (velcro) and can be easily taken apart and stored flat if needed. Reassembly is just as easy.
Now lemme tell you…I love a good box. The milk carton came fully assembled and as soon as the mom put it out, I crawled right in and stayed there. It’s the purrrrrfect spot for me to hide from Wally. You can barely see me in here!
Cat in the Box offers 2 box designs…the milk carton and a monster cheese wedge. Both can be set upright or on the side…however your cat likes it. You can purchase them directly from the Cat in the Box website. Right now, the boxes are only available in the U.S….each box costs $29.99 and shipping is free!
I give this Cat in the Box milk carton BIG paws up! And from me, those are some mighty big paws. I’m staying in here forever. Or at least until dinner time.
