Charlie's Playhouse of Sin



When I think of cardboard cat condos, I immediately picture darling cottages like "1 Cool Place" (above), featuring precious lil' kittens confusedly peeping their heads out of the front door and roof.

So, when my Mom told me she had picked one up at an auction for a steal, I thought, "Well, OK, this should be interesting."


Cue the "Multilevel Cat Playhouse," straight out of 1970-something, still sealed and in its original packaging. After multiple false starts (further complicated by Charlie trying to get in it while it was still "Under Construction"), we finally got the cardboard behemoth "up to code," and fit for feline occupancy.

But wait..where are the potted plants, the realistic brick siding, the charming light sconces?? Let's take a closer look at what's going on outside this particular "Cat House." (If there's any impressionable kittens in the room, you may want to ask them to leave.)

First up, get a load of this guy! Is he drunk? High? Chester Cheetah's homeless cousin?

Then there's this "voluptuous" lady of the night. The cigarette is a nice touch.

And finally, we're not even going to talk about what's going on in this picture.

Contemplating his wicked surroundings

In a world where things have progressively become more scandalous and risqué, I suppose it's nice to know that modern day cardboard cat condos are among the few items that have opted to take the more conservative route.
