Pet toys and furniture can be a tough sell because they're not meant for human use. This may sound obvious, but we tend to have a lower tolerance for things that are not either use by us or there for our enjoyment. Cats are fun, but scratching posts and such often fail to coordinate with the decor of a room. If you are able to secure a piece of furniture that is made for your pet but can pass as art, it is nearly a must-have. The Cat Cocoon is just such an object. Made out of double wall corrugated cardboard, the cocoon has a streamlined, pleasing shape and doubles as both a scratching post and a cat bed. It has the added advantage of making your cat look incredibly cute when it peeps out from inside one of the laser-cut holes. Price: $290.
