The Refined Feline presented its luxury cat furniture products at the 1st Annual New York City Pet Show on May 22nd to the 23rd. For the first time we presented our newly designed litter box furniture to the public. Our Refined Litter Box and Refined Litter Box Electric products are now made in the US and are built with a stile and rail frame. They still have a reversible entrance, storage drawer, and sliding botton tray for easy litter access. Our Corner Litter Cabinet also has the same stile and rail design. Listening to consumer feedback on earlier models, we included a larger plastic litter tray. An external litter catch will be offered with each litter box to catch stray litter as cats exits the litter box.
While the NYC Pet Show was dominated by dogs, we did have many cat enthusiasts stop by our booth and offered their compliments on our products. Some even brought their cats to the show. The cats took right to the Lotus, scooping out the crowd from above. The show also featured guest speakers which included Beth Adelman who spoke about “What do cats want from their litter box” and Anne Hohenhaus who presented “Cat myths debunked.”
Next year we plan to take our show on the road, attending consumer pet shows around the country. Maybe we’ll be in your town
The Refined Feline’s Cat Clouds Cat Shelves was named the winner of the 2010 Pet Age Pinnacle Readers Choice Award!
Pet Age is a trade magazine for the pet industry. They select their winners based on retailer’s interest in products featured in their magazine. Of all the products featured in 2009, our Cat Clouds Cat Shelves was the winner in the Cat category.
We at The Refined Feline pride ourselves on innovative design and appreciate the recognition for our efforts. This award further justifies retailers’ desire for high quality products that pet and pet owners will love.
The Cat Cloud Cat Shelf frees up floor space while giving cats a place to climb and perch. It’s available in multiple colors and its comfortable pad is replaceable.
From March 26th to 28th RefinedKind Pet Products exhibited our luxury line of cat furniture at the 2010 Global Pet Expo held in Orlando Florida. 800 exhibiters attended along with 5000 buyers from around the world. This was the first time we attended the Global Pet Expo and we found it quite a success.
We received compliments on not only the products we offered but on the booth design. A living room was recreated completed with sofa, coffee table, and rug to help buyers visualize how our products would work in their customers’ homes.
Our current line was presented including our Lotus cat tower and our newly designed Refined Litter Box. Now American made with metal knobs and a classic stile and rail design. Also exhibited were some new litter boxes and cat/dog beds. We hope to bring these new designs to market by the end of this year.
Not only were domestic buyers interested, but international buyers as well. Those living in Japan, Brazil, and Europe should hopefully see our products available for purchase soon.
Overall it was a successful trade show and we hope to attend another soon to spread the word about our products.
