Cat

Kitty Kasa

Your little feline friend could use some new hideouts, and this Kitty Kasa Collection from ArniSays won’t burn your retinas like the other offerings at the pet store. And, as if your cat’s happiness isn’t enough reward, when you buy one of the Kasa items, you’re also saving the life of a shelter cat, as all profits go directly to the ARNI foundation, a 501(C)3, non-profit, no-kill, animal shelter located in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Y.bowl

If a regular sit-on-the-floor steel bowl for your furry friend just won’t work with your décor, you might be a little too concerned with details. That said, hello, nice to meet you, please sit down and join the club; your design obsessive tendencies are welcomed here. The Y.bowl from Doca Pet (literally) elevates the common steel bowl to a considered receptacle for your pets, and with different sizes and heights, you’re able to pick the perfect size. There’s also a fair bit of other similarly modern designs, Squaremeal being my second favorite.

Native American Teepee

You just know your kitty cat(s) will love this recycled cardboard tipi, not because it’s recycled, but because it’s cardboard. (The teepee is much better to have around than a regular ol’ box, isn’t it?)

Sleepypod

As a pet owner myself, I have to say this little pet carrier looks to have a handful of benefits over my existing plastic crates. It’s a bed that converts into a carrier, but it’s the extra accessories enabling travel ease that has me curious. I’d check it out if you’re not so happy with your current carrier.

Sleepypod allows pets to travel safely in the pampered comfort of their own bed made of luxurious ultra-plush and foam alleviating the stress associated with travel and confinement in hard, plastic boxes with limited visibility. Once your pet becomes accustomed to using the Sleepypod as a ultra comfortable bed, Sleepypod’s sturdy mesh top onto the luggage-grade ballistic nylon bed with machine washable liner and Fifi (or Fido) is ready to travel in their own bed. Straping the seat belt around the Sleepypod turns it into a car seat in seconds.

Sleepypod, $165.00
Sleepypod Mini, $149.50
Sleepypod Air, $149.99 (coming soon)

ModKat Litter Box

Yes, $180.00 is a lot of money, but if you have a cat (or cats), you know a solution to the unsightly litter box is well worth a good stack of bills, even if they are twenties.

Who says a litter box can’t embrace form as well as function, work with your décor and provide an unparalleled experience for your cat. Not us. The ModKat Litter Box is the answer. Its modern design compliments any room, while the enclosed base and “rooftop access” allows your cat the privacy needed to do his or her business.
Every detail has been thoughtfully considered, from the non-skid feet that keeps Modkat put, to the locking rooftop that keeps nosey pets and curious kids at bay. An ergonomic scoop with incorporated brush stores neatly on the side and the reusable litter liner is friendly to your wallet and to the environment.

Kattbank 48″ Bench

If I had a nickel for every time someone talked about needing a decent way to conceal a litter box, I’d have about 40 cents. Unfortunately that comes nowhere near paying for this particular solution.

A modern bench designed to conceal the cat litter box. The streamlined appearance hides its purpose. European hardware offers soft-close lid support to open and close without slamming. The interior is cleverly vented to provide adequate airflow for the cats health, yet does not give up any offending odors.
