Now you can buy your cat a bed that is literally a box

Instead of the box that the bed came in being used as the bed by your cat, this time the box contains a box and that becomes the bed! It sort of makes sense. We know how cats don’t necessarily respond to commercially made products as we do because the products are made for us ultimately because we are the purchasers. Cats respond to things that push their go button and their button is usually different to ours. It could be almost anything but they do like boxes, we know that. I have a theory about why cats like boxes.

I’m a bit surprised, actually, that nobody else came up with this idea before or perhaps they did?

    Through the years one of the perks of working in an office was always when the computers were upgraded I could snag 4 to 6 boxes to make a kitty condo for my cats. This is the latest one. I made it split level so Samirah could have her choice of views. She’s slept in every compartment. Her Majesty spends her mornings and evenings watching the traffic go by outside and occasionally she watches tv. She didn’t care much for that “Zoo” miniseries but she apparently prefers “Law and Order: Criminal Intent” and “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.”

    LOL-My husband and I have been supplying fresh boxes for our feline friends 11+years. The reason we started doing this is because every time we opened a cardboard box, it only took a few seconds for one or two of the cats to jump in it!!!
    We make doors with the flaps, cut peep holes and windows or whatever, But not while kitty is anywhere close ,to avoid accidents.

    They prefer the box over any fancy petstore product. Best thing is we can toss them out when they get dirty.

    I like the commercial. No, I love it. It’s so over the top; it hilights how sophisticated and clever we are, yet dumb (most of us) when it comes to reading animals. This idea is the product of genius, but cats thought of it first. I really should have gone into zoology or behavioral science; with my mechanical acumen I would have thought of this decades ago. I turned the fork around on tricycles many years (around ’63) before Ray Lohr “invented” the Big Wheel, the bastard.
