meyou paris creates classy furniture for suspiciously self-aware felines. three years ago, they launched a range of chic cat beds. now, they’re launching two new products on kickstarter — a minimal cat habitat (HOOP), and a graphic, cactus-shaped scratcher (VEGAS).

the traditional cat tree is typically a hodgepodge of unintentional design decisions, eyesores to many designers. unfortunately, designers often bite the oblong bullet anyway, for the sake of the contentment of their selfish feline friends. they purr away in their ugly living-room-castle, while your highly-curated furniture suddenly gets lost in the calamity. meyou paris’ new products takes out the need to make this compromise: ‘meyou’s furniture reconciles your cat’s needs with your design expectations.’
HOOP allows your cat to taken 3 minimal leaps, climbing its way to the tippy top, where a nice, curved platform awaits. each layer is covered with a thin cushion secured by velcro. the sleek metal structure fits minimally into spaces.
VEGAS is a wall-mounted, emoji-cactus-shaped scratching post. it has a few simple contours and some nice, graphic colors (green, black, or beige). if placed strategically, your cat can have a field-day scratching on them, while adding an amusing sense of humor to your space — as opposed to the usual, cats tearing up your stuff.
