Way back in 2015 we did a post called – Why Do Cats Love Cardboard Boxes? Check it out – you might be surprised at what we found.
Since then cats haven’t changed, but cardboard play beds and boxes certainly have! We caught up with the team at CATBOX who make these delightfully stylish cardboard cat beds.
They retain all the fun of a basic cardboard box, but add sizzle and sass to take them from ordinary to extraordinary (photo below is our own ginger tabby meowdeling his prowess as an astronaut and feline space alien).
It’s a fun way to let your kitty express their purrsonality and even travel to meow-ter space. >^..^<
CATBOX is the cat bed of your favorite feline’s dreams! It is a rectangular cardboard box, sized to fit cats comfortably. There are cut-outs on each end for face scratching, easy head resting and your daily amusement.
That’s right, CATBOX isn’t just for your cat! The outside of the box is illustrated to transform those purring dozy cat fantasies into your comical reality. Essentially, it’s all the happiness you get from dressing your cat up in those hilarious costumes, except they also enjoy it!
When your furry feline companion steps into a CATBOX (and inevitably loafs into place), they will be transformed into a valiant galaxy voyager, a musical genius or a…the possibilities are endless! So far, they have completed two designs for CATBOX.
The ASTRObox will catapult your kitty into the depths of outer space and the ROCKbox will give your cat a more exciting object (other than the couch) to shred in front of an adoring audience!
CATBOX will launch on Kickstarter on Jan. 22! CATBOX is the cat bed of their dreams – purrfect for your cat, and you! Proudly made in Atlanta.

Meet the Creators
CATBOX’s creator, J. Magnus Nelson, and creative director, Jamie Bourgeois are two friends who share a mutual love for cats and this weird thing that they do. They met in Savannah, GA, where they both attended the Savannah College of Art and Design. Magnus graduated with a BFA in Sound Design, and Jamie with a BFA in Fibers (obviously two degrees that make them authorities in the feline lounge product industry).
The two worked closely as a team, along with their all important quality control and ‘test pilot’ cats – the trio of Harrison, Squirrel and Cersei.
We wish them a very successful Kickstarter campaign!
