There is a home video of 4-year-old me, excitedly tearing the Punky Brewster wrapping paper off my Christmas presents before ignoring them completely and climbing into an empty cardboard box beside the tree. It’s a scenario that most parents are familiar with, especially if your offspring is a cat.
Cacao Furniture has figured that out. The Bulgarian company knows that even if you have the world’s most elaborate cat tree, your pet is probably going to want to crawl into the box that it came in. So it has eliminated the middle man and has instead designed a series of artistic cardboard boxes for your cat to enjoy.
In its Etsy store, Cacao offers several different pieces of cardboard furniture, which range from a treasure chest to a Smart car to a soccer ball.
You can pick one up for between $28 and $60, depending on the model, although the company says that it is currently sold out of some of its more popular options.
I just hope they don’t ship them inside other cardboard boxes, because you know what will happen then.
