About this project

MEOWSES are the perfect party pads for every cat and cat lover! These cool cat houses are fun, unique, and functional:

  • Interior dimensions are 12.5" x 15" x 19" — the perfect space for your cat to stand, sit, or lie down in
  • Stable and lightweight design can be easily moved or repositioned anywhere in your home
  • Made from eco-friendly corrugate materials
  • 100% Made in the USA and 100% awesome!

Introducing the first ever Catnip Dispensary for your cat!  Cats work hard day in and day out to put a smile on our faces.  Reward them for all their hard work with the Medicate Catnip Dispensary — a place for them to unwind at the end of the day and put their mind at ease.

Everyone enjoys a fun night out at their favorite watering hole, but is it fair that our cats get left home alone? With the Milk Bar, your cat will now have a late night hangout of their very own — all cats deserve a place to party, too!

We love all the cool new products and all the cool cats behind each Kickstarter campaign.  We wanted to spread the word about MEOWSES with a like-minded, entrepreneurial and creative community.  We're keeping our fingers crossed that our initial campaign is successful because we have lots of awesome ideas for other fun products for all our little party animals.  Oh, and raising the money is a small part of why we're here, too ;)

How did we come up with our final goal amount? Our only challenge with MEOWSES is in the area of volume production and logistics.  We need to produce large quantities in order to keep MEOWSES at an affordable price. Our goal amount covers the costs to produce the minimum units required for our first edition of MEOWSES.


The idea for MEOWSES was developed by Dan Parkes and Jesse Levine of Brooklyn, NY, in collaboration with the creative team at PB&J Design, Inc.  MEOWSES are the group’s solution to "bulky, drab, and cookie cutter cat houses,” says Dan. The top priority of MEOWSES was to create something that was fun, functional, and space saving, with truly unique designs that would serve as a conversation piece in any cat lover’s home.

“Cats have an endless fascination with boxes,” says Jesse, “and as designers we knew we could use this canvas to create designs that were in line with our lifestyles, giving us the opportunity to create a product that would be fun for both our cats and us."

Supported by the successful product development background of PB&J Design, we knew exactly the steps we needed to take in order to successfully launch a new product line.  We spent an extensive amount of time researching and developing prototypes, interviewing with potential vendors, and lining up the right partners to ensure that every component was in place, giving us the ability to deliver the very best quality product possible.  

If the campaign is a success, we will use the funds raised to cover initial production start up costs, including cutting dies, printing plates, meeting minimum order quantities and covering fulfillment center costs.  We are proud to say that if we meet our goal, 100% of the manufacturing will be right here in the USA!

Thank you for checking out our MEOWSES - Awesome Cat Houses! We are very excited to share this project with the Kickstarter community and all you cool cats out there!

Risks and challenges

We've been designing and developing products for over 10 years. At this point, we've refined the final structure and designs for our MEOWSES and produced a small test run of samples - every cat and owner loves them!

We will notify all backers of our progress with regular updates about the project.

While we do do not foresee any major problems, there is always a possibility for a small setback to arise in any large-scale production run. If we run into any snags, we'll send Smokey in to throw his weight around and clean up any issues :)

Luckily, PB&J has worked with our local manufacturer (among the largest converters of corrugated products and protective packaging in the Northeast) for many years and is confident in their ability to deliver a quality product on time.
