The White Box Cat Den is a piece of modern cat furniture that can lay claim to being über multi-functional: it’s a den, a perch, a bed, a scratcher and a litter tray cabinet all rolled into one.
The den is made from wood, which has been varnished to create a wipe-clean surface both inside and out. It features a raised sleeping platform/perch with a reversible cushion on the upper level. Your cat’s scratching demands are met by a sisal pad, placed at a convenient height on one of the side panels. There are also several small, paw-shaped vents in the sides of the cabinet, which allow light and air through to the interior and enable your cat to spy on you while you remain oblivious (all cats love to do this – it helps feed their collective superiority complex).
Inside the cabinet there are two levels connected via an oval opening in the dividing shelf. The entrance to the cabinet is on the upper level and the space for the litter tray is underneath; so as your cat jumps on to the upper shelf after using the facilities most of the litter stuck to his or her paws will drop back into the tray – neat! The space allocated for the litter tray is generously-sized – making it ideal to house large trays needed for multi-cat households.
Measurements: L52.5cm x W63.5cm x H90.5cm
The White Box Cat Den is available from ZooplusUK for £119.00 (inc UK delivery). If you’re thinking of buying one of these, here are a few things you need to take into account:
1. The litter tray shown in the promo shots is not included in the price – Zooplus recommend the Cleany Cat Litter Tray, which they say fits perfectly on the lower level. You may find your existing litter tray will fit just as well. Zooplus have included an option to buy the Cleany Cat Tray for £12.90 on the same page as the White Box Cat Den, which makes life very convenient. However if you click on the link above, which takes you directly to the Cleany Cat Litter Tray page, you’ll find them available for £9.90 and save yourself 3 quid! Tsk tsk, Zooplus!
2. Zooplus don’t mention whether or not the sisal scratch pad is replaceable, so I’m assuming it isn’t.
3. I’ve noticed that items of cat furniture like the White Box Cat Den tend not to be re-stocked by Zooplus once they sell out – so if you’re thinking of getting one, don’t deliberate for too long!
