Compression Cat Box

Cozy Cat

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.

    My cats LOVE their Whisker+Box so much that they fight over it. I just got a second one and will be giving them as holiday gifts this year!

    Will you be offering them in different colors like Pink or Purple? My cats are all girls and love their girly colored accessories!

    @Sarah I've considered purple! I use a really wonderfully coated canvas material to make these and unfortunately they don't offer pink, but they do have a lovely rich royal blue that is close to a purple.

    This looks great! Is it just the one-size-fits-all? Or do you have other sizes?

    @Lisa Hello! Currently there is only one size but it fits up to a 20 lb cat. It really is about squeezing into a space and feeling that compression.

    @Lisa It's very interesting science actually, and based on what Vet's term "compression therapy". The thought is that the close contact with the box’s interior releases endorphins – nature’s own morphine-like substances – causing pleasure and reducing stress.

    Quoted from an article by Nicholas Dodman, Professor Emeritus of Behavioral Pharmacology and Animal Behavior, Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, at Tufts University.

    This concept applies to some other animals and even to some people living with autism.

    @Andrea looks like a winner! I noticed the woven nylon material - several of our cats are big fans of laying on my work back pack, same type of material (which is great for shed hair) Have you run into any "feline leanings" toward that material?

    @michael Interesting question! I haven't necessarily but I do love that it is highly durable, water repellent and easy to clean with water or a lint brush. I have also wondered if felines are drawn to particular colors? My cat seems to like them all, but it would be interesting to do a layman's study of both

    Interesting idea! I have a 17-lb cat who would love this. He worries a lot and often tucks himself into places where you wouldn't think he would fit. I wouldn't be surprised if this is for compression comfort. I hadn't thought about that, but it makes sense. It's like the security of a kitten pile. However, I tried to purchase, but the "choose color" option doesn't work, and it's a required field, so I couldn't place my order.

    @Anna L Hi Anna! Sorry to hear you were having trouble placing your order. Our site occasionally has some bugs when using a mobile device, so if you were on your phone you might have better luck with your computer. Or, it could have just been a temporary glitch, because it seems to be working just fine on my end. Otherwise you can always call to place your order: 877-862-0222
