Designed for Cats, Styled for People
When working in costume design you get asked to make some peculiar things, for example, a giant ball costume that a person could get inside. My client asked me for three of these giant balls, and I had to figure out how to make them!
I made a small ball prototype before making the human sized costumes. Shortly after this I got kittens, and then had the eureka moment to turn this prototype into a cat bed. The kittens absolutely loved it, and I had created an original cat bed, which I called the Cat Ball® cat bed.
My Cat Ball® cat bed and Cat Canoe® cat bed are made with a thick, high density foam that maintains the unique shape of the beds while also allowing your kitty to curl up in any position. They can even smash the Cat Ball® and sleep on top of it, and you can press the bed back into shape. The shape and properties are entirely from the pattern I created and the materials I use: there is no internal wire or framework.
The Cat Ball® cat bed and Cat Canoe® are made in a wide variety of fabrics, fully lined, and the seams are finished with coordinating bias tape for a sharp, tailored look. These cat beds are fully washable, warm, cozy, and cats will also use them as a play space. Currently most of the fabrics we use are 100% cotton quilting prints.
The Cat Ball cat bed and the Cat Canoe are labor intensive to make, requiring specialty materials and equipment. Our business has grown and to keep up with demand, we now have help cutting and sewing our products. I continue to work at The Cat Ball World Headquarters, where I design new products, make samples and prototypes, and occasionally do custom work. I have four industrial sewing machines, an army of cutting tools, many pounds of thread, and a large, cork covered pattern making table.
Everything I do is loud, messy and for the love of cats.

Retro is a good-natured guy, but nobody really understands him. His hobbies are naps, string, and rodents. Retro is half Angora, half Siamese. His color is called "lynx point".
Tink is new to the crew, and is still learning how to be a Siamese Supermodel. She loves the laser pointer more than anything else, but has also demonstrated superb lap-sitting skills. Tink wears a very cute pair of puffy pants.
Twix has this incredible long, strong powerful tail that can drag your coffee cup right off of the table. He can be found sitting wherever he wants, and he really doesn't like to be photographed.
