One thing almost everybody knows about cats is that they like boxes. In fact, any snug enclosed space, like bags, drawers, vases, fishbowls, etc. As long as “if I fits I sits applies,” cats will squeeze their furry butts into anything. But there is something magical about the cardboard box for cats. There are several theories on why cats like boxes so much. Some scientists believe that boxes offer kitties a sense of security, as well as a place to hide when they are tired of their owners.
But now, you can give your kitty the coolest cardboard box homes in the world that will transform your fur babies into pilots, soldiers and straight-up badass pussycats.
Thanks to British novelty and gift shop SUCK UK, you can now buy your cat the home of their dreams. This tank house was very popular in particular and is unfortunately sold out at the moment. But you can buy more gifts on their website, as well as Amazon.
Since a fully assembled cardboard cat home wouldn’t hold up well in the mail, you need to put it together yourself. It’s not a very daunting task, so don’t worry. One of these cardboard homes will set you back somewhere around $35.
Anyone who has ever downloaded one of those cat games on an IPad knows how much cats love attacking the screen. Really, I’ve seen some cats in my life who love watching TV. While this cardboard laptop doesn’t actually have a moving screen, it has a cute little furry mouse for your cat to play with.
Or if you don’t feel like spending money on a pre-made cardboard box and you want to flex your creative muscle, you can always make your own cardboard cat house from stuff lying around your human house. To make the one you see in the photo above, you can follow these instructions.
There are also a bunch of DIY ideas for all you cat owners out there on the internet. You can make everything from scratching posts to litter boxes for your feline companions.
