Meet the Vendor: The CatBall, LLC
Who are you and what do you do?
We are The CatBall, LLC and we make beds for cats! Our iconic Cat Ball® cat bed hit the market in 2011 and is now loved by cats on 5 continents.
What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
We are working on some concepts for cat toy designs right now, because obviously, your cat can never have enough toys.
What is your favorite new product for 2015?
We have been working with fake fur, which is really messy to cut, and have developed a cat-eating monster Cat Ball® cat bed. It’s called the Hairy Cat Ball.
How far will you be traveling to come to UCU?
We are a local business and are based in Bellevue.
How did you get started in your business?
Jennifer developed the Cat Ball® while working as a costume designer. The first prototype was actually a miniature sample for a mascot costume, and she turned it into the hexagonal cat bed with two openings that is now known as the Cat Ball®.
What’s your favorite item that you sell?
We love Cat Ball® cat bed in all of its iterations because cats respond to it so well. It’s a safe place for them to sleep and a fun photo prop for kitties, too!
What do your customers love most about your product(s)?
Our human customers love that our cat bed designs are designed for cats, yet styled for people. Cats love to get inside our cave-like cat bed, and people love that the Cat Ball® looks so great in their homes.
