Kitty of the High Seas

Captain Furrball may be terrified of the bath tub, but she'll never know that her new nautical bestie is a creature of the sea. Give your feline friend a maritime-inspired resting space, without the dreaded water, with this whimsical whale bed. The fringe teeth take them from sleep to play in no time, and your home decor gets just the right aquatic touch. The front and back are open for easy entry and exit. Designed by Jennifer Boaro in Washington.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.


Made in Washington

Jennifer grew up in Alaska where she picked up a few handy skills, most of them irrelevant to designing fanciful cat beds. Preferring paved roads and indoor plumbing, she moved to the Seattle area for college where she studied apparel design and pattern making. She put her skills and creativity to good use, working for many years as a costume designer.
Jennifer got her inspiration for her cat beds after being asked by the Seattle Sounders soccer team to design life-size, soccer ball shaped, costumes for the team’s mascot. In true MythBusters style, she created a miniature mockup to work out the design. Soon after, her two kittens – Twix and Pacer Stacktrain – moved into the miniature soccer ball sample and it became the first Cat Ball® cat bed.
Sadly, the great costume design position did not last, and since unemployment is the mother of innovation, she decided to start her own business making unique pet beds from her one-of-a-kind designs.
