This is a lovely product for cats lovingly made in Lithuania which I have had the privileged of reviewing because I was contacted by kivikis™. As Charlie was no longer my cat companion, I asked my neighbor, Holly, to ask her two Siamese cats – one a blue point and the other seal point – to review it.
When I took it to her apartment and placed it on the floor, within 2 minutes both cats had jumped into it and started arguing about who had rights of occupation 😉 Success, I thought, in an instant. It comes in 5 colours: dark grey (the one you see), birch green, sand brown, sky blue and snow grey. It also comes in a range of sizes. The one reviewed is large.
I left the cat house with Holly for 2 days and on my return asked Holly for her feedback.
She sad that her cats preferred to jump in and out of it, using it a temporary place to stay and an object to play with rather than a place to rest and snooze for long periods.
Holly felt the base could have been more padded. She said it looked a bit ’60s in appearance. In other words retro 😉
She gave it 6.5 out of ten. I’d be a little more generous judging by her photos and the eagerness with which her cats jumped into it. At this stage I give a 4 out of 5 (using the Amazon review ranking method).
It should be said that Holly and her husband are raising twins who are still babies. This may have made her cats more inclined to be active.
I also very much like the appearance. It is very functional, practical and modern. Cats need a place to hide. It is an essential piece of kit in the multi-cat home. The kivikis™ cat house would seem ideal for that purpose. I’d have thought too that it would fit nicely on cat tree.
I’ll be reviewing it myself when I am have a cat to care for. Some pictures taken by Holly except for the one at the end which is mine.
The handmade wool felt cat house is durable and easily cleaned. You can wipe off the dirt with a clean, dry cloth or soft sponge with water and soap. Or you can wash your cat house in a washing machine using hand or wool wash programs.
You can use a vacuum cleaner too. Wool has a natural self-cleaning characteristic, so a full bath is rarely necessary.
