Mews and Nips: Amazon’s New Boxes Can Be Recycled Into Cat Condos

I’m pretty sure Amazon is most cats’ favorite retailer, especially now when so many more humans are shopping online. After all, what’s more fun than a box when you’re a cat? Well, cats are going to be even happier when their humans’ orders will start arriving in Amazon’s new sustainable packing materials. Their “less packaging, more smiles” program uses less packaging material and combines orders into fewer boxes, and, bonus, the new boxes can be reused to create cat condos, box forts, and more!

    We usually get the smaller ones but now Dad will rethink his recycle day

    This is so clever. Cats need constant and new stimulation to satisfy their curiosity. Looking forward to another Amazon order!

    My cats’ favorite boxes don’t come from Amazon, they come from Summit Racing (where my husband likes to shop). They have huge boxes for their car parts. Most things I buy from Amazon are fairly small.

    Cute idea, Except my cats would tear the cardboard to shreds. 🙂 Just keep a few boxes, and just let your cats play in and out of them. 🙂
