Cats Owners Rejoice.
Keyboard Space is Freed as Cats have New Place to Rest
Innovative desktop attachment cures frustration over cats climbing
over the computer
For millions of cat owners who face the daily challenge of sharing
their work space with their beloved cat partners, The Refined Feline
has introduced the best of all possible solutions: Kitt-In-Box, a
compact and inviting desk-side cat perch. This attractive and convenient
all-wood “in-box” attaches to the edge of the desk to
keep cats close at hand while maintaining that all-important distance
between paws and keyboard.
compact Kitt-In-Box cat perch has high sides for a nest-like coziness, and a comfortable cushion
with a machine washable cover. Besides the clamp for mounting to
the desk edge, the Kitt-In-Box has non-marring feet for those who
have the room to place the box on the desk or a nearby side table.
This unique patent-pending cat perch was designed specifically for
cat owners who work in a home or small office, according to The
Refined Feline’s President, Josh Feinkind, who has personal
experience with ‘Kitten-on-the-Keyboard’ syndrome.
“My old cat Kerpal
and I had a regular routine,” Feinkind relates. “As
I typed, he would jump up, walk on the keyboard and try to ‘help.’
I would put him on the floor, and 10 minutes later he'd be back
on the desk.” He came up with the idea for the Kitt-In-Box
while visiting a customer’s home. “We often visit homes
to interview cat owners regarding their needs and wants. We learned
that many had the same frustrating experiences trying to work around
realized that a cat bed attached to a side of a desk keeps cats out of keyboard reach, but
still close enough for a scratch on the belly. “All cat owners
know the cats will go where ever they want and you can’t really
prevent them from walking on the keyboard,” he admits, but
his customers find that the Kitt-In-Box gives cats a comfortable
option that keeps them purring on their perch rather than pawing
at the computer.
Cat owners agree. One
satisfied owner writes, “Typing on the computer would take
me twice as long since I had to constantly shoo away my cats, Zoey
and Ozzy. The Kit-In Box has transformed my desk from a battle ground
back to a work station.” Reene Hoffman, a graduate student
in Dallas, Texas, reports, “My cat would spend most of his
day walking around the desk, disorganizing my research papers and
playing with my mouse. Now that he has a place to relax that is
still close to me, I get much more work done, and I get to keep
my desk organized the way I like.”
course, the Kitt-In Box is not just for computer using cat owners.
Any pet owner who works at a desk can use the Kitt-In Box. In fact,
the adjustable Kitt-In-Box can hold up to 20 lbs, making it an appealing
option for owners of small dogs as well. Plus it’s offered
in a variety of stains to match most desk finishes.
