Need a larger version

8/16/2018 by Carolann

My cat went right to the box after I put it together. He tried to lay down in it but rolled out. He is too big. He weighs 14 1/2 pounds, but he has long legs and a long body.
I opened the end of the Whisker+Box and he lay in it with his front legs and shoulders hanging over the edge. He isn't getting the effect of the compression. We need a larger box. Or some suggestions????

My cats weren't really into this box. I still like it and love the idea. But, i make the best of it by storing their toys in it.

Well, my cats initially LOVED this thing. I was dubious about spending so much on it, but then I set it up and they couldn't get enough. Unfortunately, someone must have eventually gotten territorial and they hosed the darned thing. I tried to wipe it down, but it still smelled like urine. I had no choice but to give it a full wash with Nature's Miracle. Unfortunately, as warned, this killed the inner walls (which I assume are cardboard) and it no longer holds shape. This could be fixed SO easily by using a thin plastic panels like you find in the bottoms of some foldable bags or boxes. I can only hope to get some cut to size in order to try and fix mine someday as my cats miss it horribly.


One Size Does Not Fit All Kitties

6/26/2017 by Maryann Czerepak

Dear Grommet Staff and Whisker+Box Inventor: When I found this product on the Grommet site I immediately ordered one, it went right into my shopping cart. I was in heaven thinking that I could replace the cardboard food box my Foxy is enamored with. Unfortunately, I did not read the sizing carefully and my 20 lb. maine coon cat Foxy is unable to fit into the assembled box. Believe me, he tried, giving me looks like "what happened here"! I have had to leave one of the sides down but it doesn't have the intended effect. I plan to purchase a second one to see if I can snap the two together somehow to create a larger version. Everything else about it is great, quality of fabric, etc. Best.


Strange Aversion

5/20/2017 by Vicki

The Wisker+Box is very nicely made and I was anticipating that Sweetie Pie would immediately jump in to take possession. But... nothing. She sniffed around the edges, but was totally not interested in getting in. Very strange, since she has to occupy any box that appears in the house. Adding catnip and then stuffing my worn PJs into the Whisker+Box didn't change Sweetie's mind. I will give it to my girlfriend, hoping her new puppy will like it.


Smaller than advertised

5/3/2017 by Susan

I received this cat box today. Nicely constructed. The description, however, says it fits cats and dogs up to 20 pounds. I have an 18-pound cat and a 16-pound one. The large one cannot fit into it at all. The smaller one can barely fit, with difficulty, and is too compressed to want to stay for more than a moment. The cat is the advertisement photo must weigh about 10 pounds. My cats love cardboard boxes, and I thought this would be a more attractive substitute. Would the designer consider making a larger size for heftier cats? If so, I will be a customer.


Compression Cat Box

This “box” was way too small for my cat. She tried to get into it once and never returned to it.


Not what I hoped for

6/16/2017 by Jane

Attractive, durable, well-made. But my cats are not interested in it. At first, the smaller one got in it several times, the large cat sniffed at it and walked on by. No matter where it is, they do not use it. I'd lie a refund.


Would like to return

10/19/2018 by Karen

Unfortunately my cat has not shown an interest in this box and at the price point I would not recommend


Not working

11/26/2017 by Claudia

It doesn't fit and my cats don't sit. My 15 pounder looks like an overflowing muffin in it and my twelve pounder barely fits. Nice box but useless for my cats. Back it gors.

The Whisker+Box Story

Whisker + Box V3

Cozy Cat

If you've got a cat, you know they love snuggling up in small spaces.

This Made in the USA, collapsible cat bed is just the right size for your cat to get cozy—and it's much cuter and more functional than a cardboard box.

Maker and animal advocate Andrea Petrini’s thorough research and eye for design is evident in this seemingly simple contraption. She made sure the durable nylon canvas was easy to clean and incorporated the folding mechanism of a cardboard box into its collapsible design.

Whisker+Box was all the rage with cat parents at our office. It quickly became their kitties’ go-to sleep

You’ll love watching your kitty squeeze and bask in something attractive, sturdy, and American made.
