If you’ve lived in as many small spaces as I have, you’re always looking for ways to save floor space. The oldest trick in the designer’s book for small spaces is to use vertical space and elements as much as possible to fool the eye into thinking the room is larger than it is. It is also practical, as it gives you more room to move around. Even if you’re not lacking space, any pet owner would appreciate this beautiful hanging Square Cat Habitat by Buddha.
It is made of bamboo plywood, a great renewable resource, and the insert is basic carpet. I’m not sure what the carpet is made of and I’m trying to find out. I’m hoping its made of organic wool or recycled fibers to make it extra green. The carpet inserts are available separately in a variety of colors, so you can change them as your mood or decor changes.
And as we all know, most cats love to climb and manage to find their way to seemingly unreachable places — like on top of the kitchen cabinets or refrigerator. Maybe a hanging habitat will encourage your cat to stay away from the kitchen. And if there’s a cat owner on your gift list, I’m sure they will appreciate this for its stylish, green, space-saving qualities.
In my mind’s eye, I’m also envisioning this is a stylish shelf for other purposes, even if you don’t have a cat.
