Cats, Kids And The Eco-Caboodle

Here is a happy little post that includes cats, kids, crafts and eco-friendly products. So many of the things we love here at Care2.

Are you in the market for a cat condo? Well, if you are, I spotted some green cat real estate over on the Springwise website. California-based InPlay Products makes a line of eco-friendly habitats for cats and the house painters can be your kids.

Caboodle Habitats for Cats are durable and expandable three-level condo-like structures for cats to play, lounge and hide in. Peek-a-boo holes, customizable passageways and contoured grooming edges are some of the features offered by Caboodle structures, which are made of 350 lb. double-wall corrugated cardboard that’s locally manufactured with 40 percent recycled content. Nontoxic soy-based inks are used for printing, and all byproducts from the process including the inks are recycled afterwards. Perfect when only the greenest will do for our feline friends.

There are some 90 million households with cats in the U.S. alone, and almost half of them are now seeking out natural and environmentally friendly goods, InPlay says. Are you one of them?

One of the best parts of these cat habitats are that they can be decorated with markers, pens, pencils and stickers. These homes are mortgage-free and currently available on Amazon and through independent pet stores. Caboodle habitats are priced around 30 dollars, which includes three free corrugated toys.

Check out this video with the Caboodle and some other green pet ideas:

I really like these ideas. My cats sure do need a place to scratch! One caught a claw in the rope-type scratching post (I rescued her before she tore her claw out) and now neither of them will use it.

My cat would love this, she loves boxes and this would add to her exploring or a new place to sleep.
