~I received Catty Stacks for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
It is summer vacation and every day my girls are saying that they are bored. I am not the craftiest person so I am always looking for inspiration to get my girls doing easy and relatively clean arts and crafts for fun entertainment. I also have a cat that is constantly being chased down and being smuggled (smothering cuddles) by my girls. What better way to entertain my kids and provide my cat with his own personal home protection that he needs than with a Caddy Stacks project.
Catty Stacks are 100% recycled, vegetable-based ink modular cardboard cubes that can be stacked together and will have your cat engaged in no time. Catty Stacks are suitable for pets up to 20 pounds each and very easy to assemble. I was able to assemble each one within a few minutes and you use heavy duty binder clips to clip them together which are included. Makes sure the holes align so your cat can move within the structure.
Choose any color (green, light blue, white, pink), and have your children color or paint the boxes (non-toxic materials ONLY). Whether it’s the cat’s name, a drawing of the cat or just a jungle scene-after the box has been embellished let the cat play! Your children and cats will get hours of entertainment! My oldest daughter decided to draw our family on it and she also drew inside the boxes as well. She said that way he wouldn’t get lonely and could look at his family every time he was in it.
According to the Anti-Cruelty Society’s website, the average adult cat needs 30 minutes of play time daily, which can be broken into several short sessions. Kittens generally play for 45-60 minutes a day; five-to-ten minute sessions are the best for them. Then as we cat owners know they do a whole lot of sleeping.
Our cat just loves snoozing in his new home and he especially loves sharpening his claws on the cardboard. You can find these on the Catty Stacks website and at Petsmart stores. Be on the lookout for the new animal prints that will be coming out during the holidays too!
Whether you have one or multiple cats, Catty Stacks give them a playground to chase, jump, hide and even snooze. My girls loved decorating our cat’s new house and it literally kept them happy for a whole rainy day afternoon!
