Cascades Boutique Cat House Giveaway

We are very lucky cats!  Cascades Boutique asked us if we would like to review one of their recycled cardboard cat houses.  Of course we said yes.  They are made out of recycled fibers and water-based inks, so they can be recycled again once you're done with them.

We had a choice of a teepee or a log cabin.  Delilah wanted the teepee, so I agreed (what's the point in arguing with a tortie?).


If you know me at all, you know that I am obsessed with cardboard boxes, so of course I love this teepee.  It has the consistency of a nice comfy box with  just a slightly different shape.  I also think I look ruggedly handsome in my new tent.




I love this teepee and I could sleep here all day.  Unfortunately Delilah wants her turn.  I can feel her presence somewhere close!



Delilah has always loved tents and cubes, so she loves the shape of it.  This teepee incorporates both my love of boxes and Deli's love of tents, so I have a feeling we're going to have to learn to share.



Bella wanted nothing to do with our teepee.  She rolled her big, googly eyes at us and asked why we would choose camping out over a big bed of memory foam.  She can be so snobby!




Here comes the exciting news - we get to give one away!  The winner can choose either a log cabin or a teepee like ours.  This drawing is for people who live in North America only.  If you're in North America and want to be entered, simply leave a comment with your cat house preference and we'll draw a winner from all the commenters.  Cascade will ship the prize to the winner free!


If you're outside of North America, don't be sad because we are doing a separate drawing for you.  We will be sending the winner of the international drawing a $20.00 USD gift certificate for The Beaded Tail's Etsy store!  For international participants, you will just need to comment to enter

We will announce the winners on Monday!  We will close entries on Sunday at 4:00PM EST.  Good luck!

In the meantime, If you would like to purchase a cardboard pet house, you can get a 25% discount by using the coupon code MONKEYS at checkout.  This offer is valid until September 30th.

Teepee looks Awesome !!!
I'm a fan of box but I 'm a fan of the shape like Delilah, but I never try the paper one, In general I go for soft Igloo or My carrier which made by some fabric. So you don't need to worry about my enter
Good luck for all enter : )

Oo Leo's loving the look of those hidey holes! He'd love one of the teepees, no, the log cabin, no the teepee... oh you know Leo, he bounces from one idea to the next! I guess he likes either!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

CCL Wendy said...

Wow! What cool cat houses! We like the teepee, too, and would love to be in your draw.

Of course, it's purrfect for Samson, being cardboard and all. And what a great compromise because Deli likes tents best!

How do you get so lucky to test out these things? First the food and now these houses!

Each to their own, I guess, because Bella seems quite happy on the bed. She's definitely no fool.

Marg said...

We would love the teepee. Please put us down for the drawing. This reminds me of a very very old joke, 'Did yu hear about the Indian who drowned in his Teepee'??
Samson you look great in that TeePee and so do you Delilah. Bella you are looking very pretty with your purrs coming back.
Thank Mom for putting the Chip-in up for Chica. Take care.

Sweet Purrfections and Angel Praline said...

Fuzzy Tales said...

That teepee is pawsome! Home come no one has started to eat it yet? Haha!

Please do enter us in the contest as well. In the meantime, the mom will check out the web site...Are they Canadian? Paying high shipping and duty wouldn't be worth it!

We think we would like a teepee! We like the shape and Miss Cupcake could sit inside and be private, away from Toby.

Oh Bella I'm with you, I like a big comfy bed. But I'm certain my boys would LOVE the log cabin, please enter us in your draw :-)

Hannah and Lucy said...

The log cabin and the teepee look great places for a nap or to hide in and lay in wait to whap mum's feet as she comes by - she does a little dance when we do that!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

The teepee looks great. We can see why you both like it so much.

I came ofur from Beaded Tail as they said you have a giveaway. As a half-tortie girl myself we are hard to argue against.
I would like to try for the Log Cabin as I love a roomy place to explore.
