About Cat Ball

Our goal at the Cat Ball, LLC is to create high quality cat beds with a distinctive look.

Our original Cat Ball® cat bed is hexagonal and has two openings, one larger than the other.
This photo will help to explain our innovative, dimensional cat bed better:

See how the Cat Ball® is made with six panels and how it has two openings? Cats seem to like the two openings, and tend to be curious about our modern cat bed design. 

The Cat Ball® cat bed was designed for cats and is styled for people. We make our innovative modern cat furniture in different fabrics, always striving to find high quality prints that will look great in the home.

Tink (right) is smaller and lighter colored. Tink has tabby striped legs, but her body isn't striped. She has blue crossed eyes with small, oddly shaped pupils. More of our photos feature Tink because she always shows up when we go to the photo studio.

Cat Photography 

Photographing cats is like herding cats, but with more equipment to trip over. At first we tried to get spectacular photos with great eye contact and dynamic poses. After realizing that these expectations may not be reasonable, we started to hope for more photos like this:

Adjusting our expectations and goals was a good decision, because you just never know what these crazy cats will do.

About Jennifer

Jennifer Boaro, designer of the Cat Ball cat bed, and Retro, her Siamese lynx point cat modelIn 2009 I was employed as a costume designer and I was hired to design soccer-ball shaped, human-sized, mascot costume for the Seattle Sounders professional soccer team. Like any good Mythbusters fan, I started this project by creating a small scale model of the spherical costume - with a small hole on the top for the mascot's head and a larger hole on the bottom for his legs. I completed the project and the small prototype sat in my workshop for a year or two until it occurred to me that my new kittens might enjoy it. And I was right; they loved it! I began selling the first handmade Cat Ball® cat beds in 2011 on Etsy. Today our product line has expanded to include the Cat Canoe® cat bed, the Jumbo Cat Canoe® and some novelty variations, including our shark Cat Ball® cat bed.
