Metro Pets

Cats love to sleep everywhere – on low sofas, high shelves and even on our mid-section tummies. And in small NY apartments having a chic sleeping place for your cat can prove a challenge, especially if you want it to fit in with your well-planned décor.

The Cat Quarters ( is a functional, all-inclusive design that combines food and water bowls, litter box enclosure and lounge top all in one luxurious piece of furniture. What a great space-saver! Fitting into the style of any room while conserving space, it provides the essentials for your kitty. And if you have a shy cat, it gives him personal space if you’re lucky enough to have a spacious room or conserve space in a small apartment.

The Cat Quarters is constructed in a wood alternative, which is resistant to moisture and odors. The lounge top opens to provide access to the litter box while the stainless steel bowls are set within frames which are removable for ease of cleaning. Get one for your cat at or call 800-976-9170.

It’s easy being green! Caboodle ( is made from 40% recycled material and is 100% recyclable. These cute boxes are manufactured, assembled, and packaged all in the same location, significantly reducing its carbon foot print. The set can be stacked and joined to build a cool structure. Create an endless variety for play and sleeping, especially great if you have several cats or a young kitty that loves to explore – you can change the set-up constantly to keep the curious kitty amused. What’s even better is that these corrugated boxes can be personally customized by you to fit in with your room. Get one, or more shipped at one flat rate at
