Cats and boxes: it’s a love affair for the ages. For most cats, nothing can bring as much joy as a simple box. For some cats, any box will do. For others, size matters, and preferences vary. While some cats prefer big, roomy mansion-sized boxes, others will wedge themselves into tiny little boxes, giving rise to the “if it fits it sits” meme.
Why do cats love boxes?
There’s even a scientific explanation as to why cats love boxes. They give them a safe place to hide. They also serve as an insulator, keeping them warm. A cat’s comfort zone is 14-20 degrees higher than our own (which also explains why they’re drawn to sun puddles even on the hottest days.) It seems that boxes add just that little extra warmth for maximum comfort.
And of course, corrugated cardboard boxes can also be used as a base for playing and stalking, allowing your kitty to exercise her natural prey instinct.
If you’re like most cat parents, you’re used to your decor including any number of ugly cardboard boxes at any given time. Our cats’ comfort and fun comes above all else, right? And while I do leave boxes out for Allegra and Ruby to enjoy, I also like to surround myself with beautiful things, so the boxes tend to wind up in rooms where I don’t spend a lot of time in, which, of course, is not ideal, neither from my perspective nor form theirs.
The Purrfect Cat Box™
But now, there’s the Purrfect Cat Box™. Now live on Kickstarter, this box is unlike other plain, ugly cardboard boxes. It features attractive graphics that will look great with any décor, no matter where you place it. With its compact design, the Purrfect Cat Box fits just about anywhere, letting your kitty rest contently where they want to be.
The Purrfect Cat box features a perforated cut-out design, which lets your cats keep an eye out on their surroundings while still maintaining their privacy. The cut-out also makes a great face scratcher!
The designer of the Purrfect Cat Box, Scott Salzman, made the box for his two kitties (you can see Scott and his cats in the video below.) He’s an inventor of award winning products (featured on the Today Show and Good Morning America). Because of the nature of his work, he does lots of shipping. That results in piles of boxes laying around for his cats to play with. But those boxes often were dirty from shipping, had labels on them, were too big/small etc. Basically, they just looked lousy. That’s when he started designing, and the Purrfect Cat Box™ was born.
The boxes are made with non-toxic ink, right here in the USA, and are safe for your cat.
A word about Kickstarter: Kickstarter is a crowdfunding website that allows you to pre-purchase products in advance and at a big discount. In this case, you can get the Purrfect Cat Box at 70% off. It is not a donation-based site, you will receive your boxes if the Purrfect Cat Box reaches their funding goal. Scott’s Kickstarter is nearly at his set goal so let’s support this campaign, put them over the top, and bring these awesome boxes to life!
Give your cat the box it wants and your home the look it deserves. Your feline friend will love it.
