Join us on December 3rd for our 4th annual Artisans Marketplace featuring 40 artisans including CatBox Boutique! CatBox Boutique is a shop for your feline family members. They sell toys & healthy treats your kitty will love. In 2013 owner Michelle Loo adopted her first cat, Ziggy. She was always shopping for toys and healthy treats for him, that he would like and that she felt safe giving him. A short year later, she adopted Marley. Michelle noticed that both Ziggy and Marley loved playing in boxed of crinkle paper and the “CatBox” was born.
“I soon started hiding their favorite toys thru-out and they LOVED digging thru and “hunting” for them,” said Michelle. “I also noticed they never seemed to tire of playing in it. FINALLY a toy they played with for more than 10 minutes!”
If you own a cat you know how finicky they can be. Michelle adopted Steven in the Spring of 2016 and he instantly claimed the “CatBox” as his! In the Fall, Michelle was encouraged to open an Etsy site to share these with fellow cat lovers. In the middle of arranging everything she received the devastating news that Marley had severe Lymphoma and was given days to live. She made the tough decision to put him to sleep. Though she was heart broken, Marley loved his box especially toward the end. It was his “go to” spot to take naps and rest.
Michelle wants every kitty to love their box the way Marley did. “In my heart I dedicated this business to Marleys memory and hope kitty everywhere will have spot to call their own,” said Michelle.
