Beeztees’ Cat Cubes: cool and stylish or impractical and unattractive?
During the last six weeks, my cats were able to put Cat Cubes to the test. Now it’s time to tell you about my experiences and share my verdict.
When the Cubes arrived by post, I was surprised at how many parcels there were. No fewer than four. Only thinking about carrying them up four flights of stairs made my back feel sore. But when I lifted the first one up I realised they weigh almost nothing; in fact, I could have stacked them on top of each other and carried them up the stairs in one go. I could have – but I didn’t. The boxes were too large. Therefore, I ended up carrying them to my flat in two goes.
Worse than any Zalando order: The cardboard boxes almost reached the ceiling of my flat.
Having managed to get them all into my flat, I started unboxing. There they were, my four Cat Cubes. They came with brief instructions that displayed how to set the Cubes up. Having read the instructions, I decided to try out my own set-up. It’s surely a question of taste how to arrange them and at the end of the day, it’s up to the cats to decide if they like what they’re presented with.
These rings make it easy to attach the Cubes to each other.
I tried out a few different ways of arranging the Cubes and I must say, my cats started using them within no time – providing they liked the way I’d set them up that day. They slept, eat and played inside them. And if they weren’t happy with the set-up, the didn’t use certain Cubes. In the picture below, you can see how I ended up arranging them – based on my cats’ preferences. Having tested them for six weeks, I’m convinced that there’s a suitable set-up for everybody (or every cat).
The perfect set-up? Questionable. Anyway, these are the Cubes in my home.
The question of questions: part 1
Let’s get back to the question I started off with: Are the Cat Cubes cool and stylish or impractical and unattractive? I must say, the concept is very well thought through. Cat Cubes are especially great for anyone who lives in a small flat, as they offer cats a wide range of possibilities while only taking up little space. The Cubes also offer you a lot of freedom to arrange them as you wish. Are they stylish? I’d say so. In my opinion, Beeztees did a good job. Personally, I’d prefer the Cubes over a cat tree or an old, worn-out bed. 😉
The Cubes come with a range of contents: Here’s an eating Cube and a playing Cube.
The question of questions: part 2
Are they impractical? It depends on the home. If you have a lot of space, you’re sure to find other good solutions to offer your cat a sleeping place, a playground, a cat tree and an eating area. Personally, I don’t find them impractical at all. What I find particularly handy is that it only takes a minute to rearrange them; all you need to do is remove the attachment ring, rearrange the Cubes and put the ring back. Once set up, the Cubes are also very solid. If you wanted or needed (for lack of space), you could also use all four separately and place them wherever you like. That’s practical, right? To address my last question: Are the Cubes unattractive? I’d rather leave this question unanswered and would like to hear your opinions. Let me know what you think!
If your lacking vertical space, you can arrange the Cubes next to each other.
