Airplane Cat House

Cats love to hide in boxes, and they will love hiding in this lovingly-recreated cardboard model P-47.


Combat Theater

"Beautiful, tough and aggressive all rolled into one beast of a fighter." Meee-ow, what a great description of a cat! But it was written about a plane -- the P-47 Thunderbolt, America's classic fighter-bomber of World War II.

Cats love to hide in boxes, and this lovingly-recreated cardboard model P-47 -- with its spinning propellor, realistic checkerboard cowl, D-Day stripes, beat-up armor plating, feline-themed nose art, and hilarious details (a "taped photo" in the cockpit shows bikini'd kitties stretched out on lawn chairs next to a plastic pink flamingo) -- honors the predatory instincts that underlie this play.

Your four-footed flying ace will hop right into the cockpit and scan the horizon for enemies...or some tasty kibble. Designed in London. Made in China.

Not intended for children.

great idea for our cats


Only the most adventurous of our 3 cats really gets inside. However folding a little pet blanket and putting it in the floor of the airplane is a good idea. Also sprinkling a little catnip inside adds to their interest. Assembly was a little difficult. Directions could have a few more details.

best "box" my cat ever found ;)


Tabs could be more sturdy, but I love it!

We purchased this as a gift and the cat loves sitting in there.

Box arrived in poor condition. Purchased two. Sad and a waste of money.

Love the airplane cat house


This product is fun, fun, fun. Love all the details on the airplane--interior and exterior. Well-designed. Fun to assemble--a good, entertaining Christmas day activity for me and my dad. So far our cat hasn't taken to it on her own but we do put her in there and get a good laugh out of it.

Not Ideal for Large Cats


I bought this as a gift for my husband, who's a pilot, & Magellan, the ardent box-lover of our 3 cats. Mag loves nothing more than to ride around the kitchen in cardboard boxes with my husband pushing from behind, so this plane-box was a no-brainer. Unfortunately, Mag is a big cat & the openings are small. No amount of enticing will get him in on his own, & to make him fit we had to literally stuff him inside which of course detracted from his fun, although it made for a fantastically funny Christmas day spectacle. Also there's a hole in the bottom as well as the top so we couldn't slide him around in it even if we could get him in it. His dainty little sister Bellatrix will actually get inside but only if enticed with catnip. They're both very curious about it but have no interest in getting "trapped" inside. I think if the opening was bigger-- making it kind of a convertible-top plane-- that it would make a huge difference & then I'm pretty sure they'd absolutely love it. With a few tweaks this could be perfect so I do recommend it, but with reservations. I'm hoping that in time the "kids" will learn to love it since it's a little pricey for a glorified cardboard box, although my husband's reaction at opening it was pretty much worth the price. I really think the manufacturers should consider the convertible/topless plane idea. I would absolutely buy another one if they did.

Great idea...


The play house comes flat and needs to be folded - no glue required which is great, but the folding task alone was enough to send my husband over the edge. He got it done and it was worth it in the end, but it definitely wasn't easy! Overall though, I think it's a great idea. While I don't think it will last a long time with cats jumping in an out of it, I think it's sturdy enough to last for a while.

Couldn't resist it.


We have yet to see if the recipient will find the cardboard plane easy to assemble or if the cats will be interested in it. It is potentially the coolest gift I sent this year.



Cute concept


I purchased this airplane to stimulate my cat. It was not difficult to build. My cat is a large cat and the plane is too small for him to play in. The packaging it was shipped in was too large and damaged. Could be shipped better and a comment that included the recommended size of the cat would have been helpful.

Adorable Cat House


My cats love this cat house! It is so clever and creative. I know that the website doesn't show pictures of the inside, but trust me it is so cute, especially the picture of cats in bikinis. The only downside to it is that my cats have been having a little trouble getting into it. Most of the time they can make it to the hole on the top, but sometimes they miss and knock it over. But it's such a sturdy thing that even knocking it on its wing doesn't do any damage.
