Our goal at the Cat Ball, LLC is to create high quality cat beds with a distinctive look.
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.
Our in-house product testers and catalog models are Retro (left) and Tink (right).
Who are the people behind the scenes at the Cat Ball World Headquarters? Jennifer and Chris.
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.

In 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.
