Cardboard Cat Furniture Modeled After Famous Landmarks Around the World

For cat owners, this tale might seem all too familiar: regardless of how fancy a feline's furniture is, the fickle creature is only content when they're sleeping or playing inside an empty cardboard box. Luckily, the company Poopy Cat created a purrfect compromise for aesthetically discerning pet owners and their furry friends. Landmarks is a series of cardboard playhouses for cats (and other small animals) that beautifully represent seven iconic places around the world.

Landmarks were designed to reflect our achievements as human beings. Poopy Cat sees it as “an appreciation of collective human strength and our vote for confidence in an improving global society.” Their creations include the impressive likes of a Mayan Temple, the Taj Mahal, and the Sphinx of Giza (which seems especially appropriate for a cat). Each building features the intricate designs and surface decorations associated with it.

Unlike many cardboard cat structures on the market, Landmarks cleverly incorporates an element of play. The Eiffel Tower, for instance, has an interior elevator that hangs from a rope. Humans can add a treat in the top of the structure to encourage their feline friends to claw their way towards the reward.

For those who want one of these landmarks in their living room, Poopy Cat is now fundraising through Kickstarter.
