She loved it
01/04/2020 by Patty
I bought the Compression Cat Box for my neighbor's cat, Primrose, whom I take care of when they travel. They were away, and I went down to see Prim on Christmas Day and brought her the gift. I put it together and put it on the floor and she looked at it, and immediately rubbed her chin against the corners - which is something she goes crazy doing when I visit her. Within less than 5 mins. she stepped into, sort of looked around and sat for a min or tow. She's always excited when I come to visit so she got out. When I went back the next day to see her, I could see a couple of clumps of fur on the box, so I figured she'd managed to stuff herself into it - probably for awhile. Her owners told me, after they came back, that she loves it and is in it most of the time. As a matter of fact, my neighbor invited me in to see some carpentry work he was doing in his office and there was the box about 4 feet from the circular saw, he'd set up. She jumped out when I came. He had brought it in for her and she'd been in it watching him work w/ no concerns about the saw, the hammering or anything else! I still have The Grommet catnip gift to give he - so hopefully, it is just as successful. I've had cats and remember how much they liked to squeeze into little boxes, no matter how big they were, so thought she might like the Compression Box. It seems pretty durable (much better than a thin cardboard box) and I'd say it's a winner gift for a cat!
astonishing, magical effect

This box has a magical effect on our cat. We just adopted a big bruiser of a tabby rescue who had lived on the streets. He was skittish around people and also not interested in cardboard boxes or other "safe" nesting spots we set up for him. I bought this box and he was drawn to it but he was too large to get inside. But, after I unsnapped one side of it, he would back into it and sit contently, even right next to humans. I bought a 2nd box and snapped the 2 together to make a larger box, and amazingly, he hopped right in and now, happily & calmly, snoozes in his new box right next to us. Thanks for making our "sort of feral" kitty feel safe.

I have 3 cats. One only naps under a bed. Amazingly now she curls up in compression box. The other 2 have been napping in it also. So glad I bought it!!

This “box” was way too small for my cat. She tried to get into it once and never returned to it.
Small but amazing

My cat took one look at this when I first placed it in front of her and walked away. After about a week, I was playing with her and the next thing I knew she jumped into it and has loved it ever since. Really nice if you are traveling as it unsnaps and lays flat.

Compression Cat Box

choose option

This cute box is like a collapsible cat bed, giving your kitty the compression therapy they love in a design that far outwits the tattered shoebox. It’s designed to fold and store, and the durable nylon is extra easy to clean. Cats love squeezing into these, and you’ll love supporting something Made in the USA.


If you've got a cat, you know they love snuggling up in small spaces.

This Made in the USA, collapsible cat bed is just the right size for your cat to get cozy—and it's much cuter and more functional than a cardboard box.

Maker and animal advocate Andrea Petrini’s thorough research and eye for design is evident in this seemingly simple contraption. She made sure the durable nylon canvas was easy to clean and incorporated the folding mechanism of a cardboard box into its collapsible design.

Whisker+Box was all the rage with cat parents at our office. It quickly became their kitties’ go-to sleep spot.

You’ll love watching your kitty squeeze and bask in something attractive, sturdy, and American made. more Their Story
