A few weeks ago, my friend Amanda passed along a link to Loyal Luxe, a Québec company that makes pet products that are environmentally sustainable and also well designed (not to be confused with Loyal Loot, an Alberta collective who also make beautifully designed objects).
Just FYI, the Loyal Luxe website is the best website I have ever seen in my whole life.
Despite the fact that I knew Oreo would never go inside a little cardboard box house -- she is deeply suspicious of all boxes -- I ordered one. It was $24, and since the company is located nearby, it arrived within days. I had hope that Oreo would venture inside, but no. She cannot be lured inside at all, not even with a bowl of the delicious slops she cries out for in the morning. She does like the little cardboard ball toys that came with the cabin, though.
It's okay, because the little cabin is adorable and I don't mind having it out (I do mind showing you the linoleum floors that are my most hated feature of our apartment, but bah! Lack of a home improvement budget!). Maybe when we finally get around to getting a new kitten, the kitten will like it! Here is Chief Inspector Oreo at work. Sniffin', avoidin'.
Miss Crowland: Oh yes, for sure! There's supposed to be a bike trail somewhere but we couldn't find it. It was a nice ride, nonetheless! Lots to see and do.
monika: Thank you very much!
La fille d'or: Oh yes, it is better in person! It's really quite big. I did my best to photograph little details but sometimes things just have to be seen in person.
CARLY WAITO: Oh yes, they told me you had been there! I mentioned you and asked if they read your blog. Ha. And yes, I love the use of all different sorts of wood! Ingenious.
Jane Flanagan: I mentioned you as well, as I stood in front of the tote you bought! I remembered your post about it.
Juli: Aw yay! Well, I am always down for hanging out! Thanks for The Good Neighbour recommendation! A lovely day all around.
roberta jane: Wish you could come by for a visit!
