kitty cottage.

July 7th, 2010 · 3 Comments

I’ll admit that in the battle between cats and dogs, I have always been a fighter for the canine cohort.  However, this past week I was forced to cross enemy lines when a friend skipped town and needed a trusty soldier to watch over her three cats.  By the end of the week, I was surprised to find myself waving my white flag and eagerly embracing the feline side as well.  In doing so, I came across these amazingly creative little lodges for my new pals.

Loyal Luxe is a company founded in 2008 by Marie-Pier Guilman and Maud Beauchamp, two industrial designers from Montreal.  These fulltime animal-loving friends were driven to create this company by the belief that style need not be sacrificed for cats or their design-conscious owners.  Made locally in Quebec from recycled cardboard, the cabins ship flat-packed to cut costs and are easily assembled without the use of glue or tools.

Customization encouraged!

    i too enjoy cat company, so long as they act like dogs. cat-dogs (or cogs), tend to have mediocre cat skills such as balance and agility. However, cogs thrive off human affection and leash walks, whereas cats scratch you and have stinky pee.

    I really wish I’d picked up that cat now. If for nothing else but to give it this home.

    My cat is a crazy cardboard lover! He has one of those Canadian Cabin for a month now and he is inside it 20h / day ! What a good 24$ investement!
