Time to build A CAT THING modular cat cave
You may have already heard – we got a KITTEN!
And now he is seven months’ old and looking for new challenges. Cats like to climb (you may have noticed if you have one) – they like to get up as high as possible (if you follow me @incredibusy on instagram you may have seen my stories, where Kipper climbs up onto my shoulder as I’m working – crazy kitten. This is all well and good, until he tries to do the same with my work colleagues – who are not QUITE as endeared by this ‘dominant cat behaviour’ to be in the highest position in the room!
Cats also like small spaces, like shoe boxes, and behind doors (and under giant rhubarb leaves it seems too!) so we made a cute DIY cat cave from a cardboard box, and an old jumper – he loved this whilst he was smaller, and I kept it in my studio so that he could cosy up near me, which he seemed to like for a bit.
And then, Ronnie spotted this A CAT THING on instagram, and started saving… to be fair, they are actually incredibly affordable, ROOM COLLECTION BEGINNER PACKAGE (Set of 5)

So we got chatting with the designers, who created this fantastic modular cat cave!
A cat thing is a series of styled cardboard boxes made especially for cats and their people. Founded in 2016 by a young architect couple in Taiwan, inspired by their cats Chacha and Lily. Their goal was to make a creative, stylish, and harmonious design that can fit in a modern living environment – and we love it!
We had fun building the modules, as you’ll see in our short movie below – the principles of origami were used to create connections that hold the different modules together.

All of the packaging and materials are recyclable and made of non-toxic materials. Sustainable, and friendly to our planet, a cat thing also strives to minimize the amount of materials used to reduce waste. For example, the joints used to fix the modules are cut from the same cardboard as the boxes, no plastics here.
You can see by the photos that as it’s modular, you can buy extra ‘rooms’ or ‘balconies’ to make it as BIG or small as you like…
