About Us

Our goal here at the Cat Ball, LLC is to create wonderful, unique, high quality beds for your cats. We don't even mind if dogs use them. Our new concepts are sketched out, sampled, prototyped, adjusted, and improved until we're sure that we've reached a level of perfection that will satisfy the most picky cats. And then we take photos:

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.
