Paw Cat Kozy Kingdom: A Cat's DelightPublished June 17, 2009
I don't know about your kitties, but mine are enthralled with anything in which they can crawl into and hide. While cardboard cartons suit these requirements almost perfectly, they may not be the most attractive items to display in the living room or den. Since Hush Puppy thoroughly scent marked one of the cartons in which his cat food arrived, we squirreled it into the bedroom, where he could happily ensconce himself, but I felt a little guilty about depriving him of a "get away" in our dining room. So I started a search on the internet to find something that would be both attractive and at the same time offer him his "safety" spot. During my search online, I soon learned that there are so many wonderful pet products on the market today, that it was very difficult for me to find one from which to choose. While I knew exactly what I was looking for, my fingers wandered from site to site, and the "eye candy" that I discovered was totally delightful. I felt like a kid turned loose in a candy store . . . but finances always raise its ugly head and some of the items were very far removed from my budget. So what kind of "gadget" will satisfy aesthetics, surfaces attractive to cats for scratching purposes, a place to hide and just the right size and shape? After a long and entertaining search, I was amazed to find a very attractive product that completely fit the bill to a "T". My search was over! I was bubbling over in excitement and anticipation as I hit "send" to complete my order. Available at Petfooddirect, a reputable online pet supply store, Omega Paw Cat Cozy Kingdom is now one of our cats' favorite play stations. The product description, "The Omega Paw Cat Cozy Kingdom has a unique hexagon shaped cat house is framed with beautiful carpeting and finished with a decorative cap in the top and bottom", is one that is absolutely "right on!" I liberally rub the top with catnip, and sit back, waiting to be entertained by two cats vying for first "dibs" in possession. Hush Puppy also loves the little plastic "comb" teeth that frame the inside area of the "kingdom" for a satisfying facial rub. Hubble prefers to attack the catnip scented carpeted top, digging his claws into it with gusto. The price is also amazingly attractive. This sturdy item sells for $21.59, is easy to assemble and arrives in a box measuring 17L x 17W x 12.8H. Shipping weight is 6 pounds. If you are interested in ordering the item, visit this link.
