One of the joys of being a pet owner is to be able to provide the needs of pets and seeing them as happy as can be. You can achieve this by giving your pet something as simple as a scratching pad or something as elaborate as a cool penthouse. But a piece of cat furniture can sometimes become too costly. Pet owners may also not be assured if the materials used are safe. Some products even use wasteful and non-sustainable materials. To work around these concerns, you can choose cat furniture or toys that are made from an eco-friendly yet versatile material such as cardboard.
Your pets’ needs are simple. Even a simple box can make them happy, in fact they usually choose the box over a new bed or toy!
