Giveaway! The Cat Caravan – Stylish Cardboard Playhouse by Make Them Roar

cat caravan - stylish cat playhouse by make them roar

A very happy New Year to you and your cats, and what better way to start 2015 than with a giveaway.  But this is no ordinary giveaway, so you’ll have to pay close attention…

Right then: the lovely Bettina, who writes Make Them Roar (the style guide for the fashionable cat – well worth subscribing to, if you don’t already), has teamed up with fellow cat woman, Merle, to create the Cat Caravan – a stunning piece of cardboard cat furniture, guaranteed to look the business in any home.

This stylish, cardboard playhouse has been designed with durability in mind, and the combination of sturdy double-walled cardboard and clever construction ensures the Cat Caravan can withstand a real battering, even from multiple cats.  Check out this video of Tiger and Lilly putting a Caravan through its paces:

The Cat Caravan allows for playing/lounging on two levels, and features several peepholes, which facilitate interactive play and also provide cats with ample opportunity to spy on their humans (spying on humans has resided in the top three of the the annual feline Popular Pastimes list since its origination in Ancient Egypt in 2000 BC).  And, as if all that wasn’t enough, the Caravan comes with two cute cardboard toys for additional fun.

The Caravan also has excellent eco-credentials – it’s fully recyclable, is made in Britain from 100% recycled cardboard, printed with water-based inks, and comes as a flat pack, which simply folds together without the need for glue.

Now, here’s why this is a giveaway with a difference: the Cat Caravan hasn’t gone into production yet – Bettina and Merle are currently running a Cat Caravan Kickstarter campaign to gain funding for the first batch of Caravans to roll off the production line.  If you’re unsure what a Kickstarter campaign involves, please click on the link above for further info, otherwise this giveaway prize may not make any sense.

OK, so now we’re all clear about what a Kickstarter campaign actually is, I can reveal the giveaway prize….. The lucky winner of the Cat Caravan giveaway will receive a £25 Kickstarter pledge in their name.  This means that if the campaign is successful, the winner will get their hot little paws on a Cat Caravan, once they go into production at some point during February; but if the campaign is unsuccessful (which would be a real shame), the pledge will be converted to a £25 voucher to spend on some cool cat goodies in the Make Them Roar store – so the winner will receive a prize worth £25 whatever the outcome of the campaign.

The Cat Caravan giveaway is open to entries from anywhere in the whole world!  In order to enter the giveway, all you need to do is leave a comment at the end of this post.  Entries must be in before midnight 1st February 2015.

It would also be great if you could share either this post or the Cat Caravan Kickstarter page on social media, and ask your cat-minded friends and family to do the same, as the more cat people get to hear of the campaign, the more chance it has of success.  The campaign ends at midnight 1st February 2015.  (Sharing the campaign isn’t an entry requirement for the giveaway, it would just be very nice of you!)

And now for the giveaway rules – a dull read, but necessary for legal reasons.

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment at the end of this post.  Entries must be in before midnight 1st February 2015.  The winner will be selected by a random electronic draw on 1st February 2015 and notified by email.  If the prize is not claimed within two weeks of notification a new winner will be selected.  The winner will receive one £25 pledge for the Cat Caravan Kickstarter campaign.  If the campaign is successful, the winner will receive one Cat Caravan, once they go into production during February 2015.  If the campaign is unsuccessful, the winner will receive one £25 voucher during February 2015.  The prize is not transferable and is dependent on the outcome of the Cat Caravan Kickstarter campaign.

  8. I have just brought home a lovely tortie rescue cat. Because of some recent experiences she is so scared and it will take some time for her to settle. A little space of her own would be the ideal place for her to feel safe whilst watching the rest of the world go by.
