My wife Megan and I founded Cat Box Classics to make cats happy and homes look great. Our goal is to bring you the most cat-friendly, beautiful cardboard cat houses available.
After moving into a home we really liked, we wanted a cardboard cat house that wasn't covered in cartoons, shaped like fire engines or, worse yet, were cut up out of old, brown shipping boxes. Those are fine, but they weren’t what we wanted for our home. And we’re guessing they aren’t what you want either.
Cat Box Classics was launched to meet the need for a combined play, scratch and sleep house with an integrated cat scratcher that would make cats happy and enhance home décor.
It Began with Love for a Cat
Our journey begins, like many of your stories, with love for a cat. Cleo was a rescue found abandoned, sick and alone in a stairwell. My wife Megan adopted Cleo and introduced me to Cleo shortly after we met seven years ago. I, like many new cat owners, quickly discovered Cleo loves boxes. Megan already knew that universal truth, but it was a revelation for me. So I began cutting holes into Amazon and Zappos boxes. We would use the boxes for interactive play, Cleo would sleep in the boxes and occasionally stalk and bap us through the play holes. Cleo, finicky as she is about everything, loved them.
It Continued with Love for Our New Home
Cat Box Classics was Born!
We knew there were people like us that wanted to satisfy their cat’s love of boxes while having something beautiful in their space. So we kept at it. And, after adding a second rescue cat, Jupiter, to the clan and producing dozens of designs and prototypes, working with multiple structural and graphic designers, launching a comprehensive search for manufacturers to produce our designs and finally, settling on our partners and processes, Cat Box Classics was born -- A combined cat play, scratch and sleep cat house that meets the needs and desires of cats while being designed for the aesthetic and interior design preferences of people.
