I’m pretty sure our pets are enjoying this pandemic way more than us, I mean they get to have their hoomans all to themselves almost all the time! And as much as I love spending time with my own cats, I’m honestly running out of ways to keep them entertained and prevent them from knocking down an item or two in my home, out of sheer boredom. If you’re pretty much in the same precarious situation as me, then this collection of pet products promises to come to your rescue! From a cardboard cat house to a 3D-printed wheelchair for aging dogs – these product designs will take good care of your pet, and keep them active and content! You can take a little breather, while they wrestle around with these newfound fun products!

1. Dmuse

Dmuse is a sauna-like drying chamber for cats to have a comfortable place to dry themselves after a bath.

Why is it noteworthy?

While getting cats into the bathtub for cleaning can feel like pulling your own teeth, it’s only half the battle. Then comes the water and we all know how cats deal with that. Take that in addition to drying your cat in a towel and you’ll end up with scratches and tooth marks up and down your arms. Introducing Dmuse, Designer Dot created a drying chamber that doubles as a cat tower as a solution for cats to have a more comfortable way of drying themselves.

What we like

  • A collection of control options manage the device’s temperature, strength, timer, and heat fan
  • Dmuse doubly operates as a cat tower for cats to rest and play even when they’re dry

What we dislike

  • We’re not sure if cats would actually enter the chamber

2. Solar

MyZoo, a cat goods company, designs modern cat furniture that caters to your cat’s every need, while not disrupting your interior design. Solar, one of their more recent designs, is a wall-mountable floating cat bed that mounts onto any vertical surface so cats rest midair in their own designated space.

Why is it noteworthy?

Shaped like the sun, Solar is a small, but sturdy floating cat bed that’s built from pinewood. In a similar fashion to their other pieces of cat furniture, MyZoo lined Solar with a slotted resting platform for safe jumping. Ideal for small spaces, Solar provides a resting spot and jumping platform for your cat and saves space in the meantime.

What we like

  • Solar doesn’t take up any ground space and easily mounts to any wall where there’s room
  • Easy to assemble

What we dislike

  • There’s no cushioning on the bed, which would make it comfier

3. The CIRI-US Beam Projector

Concept CIRI-US Beam Projector Design

The CIRI-US Beam Projector is an attempt to mourn the death of a man’s best friend more positively and beautifully. The concept beam projector doubles as an urn to contain a dog’s remains and can be used to observe the pet’s journey to becoming a star. Even in your pet dog’s death, you can still show your love by giving the dog a proper resting place. The Rainbow Bridge is out there, but the dog must first become a star.

Why is it noteworthy?

Pet funeral doesn’t always have to be formal and cold. It can be interesting and memorable as every pet is meant to be a star. Even if you don’t believe in the idea, having a star for your beloved pet can make things easier and lighter. So switch on this projector and wait for it to beam your pet as a shining star on your wall or ceiling.

What we like

  • Gives your pet dog’s death more meaning

What we dislike

No complaints!

4. The Leo’s Loo Too


Looking almost like a slick front-loaded washing machine, the Leo’s Loo Too by Smarty Pear uses a similar rotating chamber to automatically ‘flush’ out your cat’s poo, saving you the trouble of digging away at kitty excrement with a scoop.

Why is it noteworthy?

After your cat’s gone about its business, the Leo’s Loo Too waits for the waste to clump together before beginning its cleaning cycle. To clean out the cat’s waste, the entire inner chamber rotates a full 360, using gravity and a clever mesh design to sift out and separate the waste from the litter. At the end of one 360° spin, the waste gets sent into the Loo’s waste drawer where it’s collected in a plastic waste bag, while the upper chamber is cleaned and laid down with the litter once again. The entire process happens automatically and can be controlled/calibrated via a companion smartphone app

What we like

  • Sports a modern enclosed design
  • The enclosed space means your cat can go about its business with utmost privacy

What we dislike

  • Occupies a substantial amount of space

5. Alive



Alive is a customizable, 3D-printed wheelchair for dogs suffering from joint-related body ailments. As our dogs grow older, age-related body issues, such as arthritis, hip dysplasia, and paralysis make it difficult to enjoy life. When even moving feels hard, aging dogs are less likely to spend time with family members and take care of bodily needs, leading to psychological stress.

Why is it noteworthy?

hile technical accessories and equipment do exist to offer some relief, antiquated building methods make it hard for dogs to adapt to wheelchairs and other assistive appliances. Revolutionizing the canine assistive appliance game, industrial designer Martin Tsai conceptualized a wheelchair for dogs called Alive that can be 3D printed to fit your dog’s body data and needs.

What we like

  • It’s a one of a kind design that provides aid to dogs suffering from joint-related body ailments
  • Uses 3D scans of the dog’s body data to generate an optimized wheelchair for each dog

What we dislike

No complaints!

6. DogTag


Say hello to DogTag – a pet-collar tag designed by the fine folks at Studio Proper that houses an Apple AirTag within it. Designed to work with dogs as well as cats, the DogTag lets you easily keep track of your furry little friend when they’re scampering about outdoors or even playing hide-and-seek with you inside the house.

Why is it noteworthy?

Relying on Apple’s powerful ‘Find My’ network, the DogTag lets you be able to keep track of your pet no matter where they are. You can create no-go zones for them, knowing if and when they scale your fence and jump right into your neighbor’s prized flower-bed… and if they decide to play hooky right before bathing time, you can easily ‘ping’ the AirTag inside the collar to give up your furry little monster’s location, or use the Find Nearby feature to help guide you to them!

What we like

  • Let’s you keep track of your pet no matter where they are
  • Comes along with a secure two-part soft silicone housing that protects the tags from accidental bumps or even getting wet

What we dislike

  • Not sure how comfortable doggos would be with wearing it

7. MeowMate



Designed by Joint Technology Co, MeowMate is the perfect companion for your cats when you’re away! The adorable little gadget basically follows your cat around all day (it simply replaces you), and helps you keep an eye on them.

Why is it noteworthy?

It features a 1080p ultra-clear video quality and HD voice intercom, allowing you to watch and hear your pet clearly and sharply. It also boasts real-time delay monitoring compensation to ensure a high synchronization between images and sounds. You simply have to download the MeowMate app on your smartphone, switch on the MeowMate device, and scan the QR code at the bottom of it, to connect it to the app on your phone.

What we like

  • Amped with a built-in sensor, MeowMate can move around your home with ease, and sense and avoid any obstacles in its path
  •  When MeowMate’s battery is low, it automatically recharges once it reaches the induction zone of the charging dock

What we dislike

  • We hope our kitties don’t play around with it and damage it

8. The PetSafe Drinkwell Butterfly Pet Fountain


The PetSafe Drinkwell Butterfly Pet Fountain helps your pet stay hydrated! The innovative pet product features four falling water streams that attract your pets towards it. Once they move towards the product, they’re fascinated by the moving water, which in turn encourages them to end up drinking it. In fact, it even features a quiet water flow, which can be achieved by removing the butterfly topper.

Why is it noteworthy?

The interactive product is a fun yet functional way to ensure your pets drink as much water as possible! The fountain can hold 50 ounces of water, which basically means it can store water all day long. The continuous circulation of water prevents the growth of bacteria and germs.

What we like

  • The dual-filtration technology eliminates bad tastes, odors, and debris

What we dislike

No complaints!

9. Petsy



Petsy is a cat house made from the bare essentials—just cardboard. Cats don’t need much, even a cardboard box will do. Moments after opening one from a shipment, your cat’s already found their hideaway, zen zone for the day. When they’re not in the mood for cuddling, a cardboard box is their personal playpen and private hideaway.

Why is it noteworthy?

Resembling the shape of an actual house, Petsy keeps a wide and lofty internal volume for cats to stretch and curl up to their heart’s content. Unadorned and unpainted, Petsy is a no-nonsense cat house that’s stripped down to its bare essentials—just the cardboard. In fact, if Petsy were to hit the markets, the entire house could be shipped as-is, no extra packaging necessary.

What we like

  • Affordable
  • Made from a sustainable material

What we dislike

No complaints!

10. Hidden


Hidden is an unconventional litter box conceptualized to be inconspicuous by design and fit into any modern home. The hardest part of owning a cat has to be taking care of the litter box. Cats mostly fend for and take care of themselves, but we’re in charge of the litter. Litter boxes aren’t designed for aesthetics, so cat owners usually have to find inconspicuous spots to keep the litter box out of sight and out of mind.

Why is it noteworthy?

It’s never a cute look to have a litter box in the bathroom or even the basement, but our cats gotta go when they gotta go. Designers with the studio YUPD took it upon themselves to conceptualize a litter box called Hidden that’s discreet by design, so it can be placed anywhere in the house.

What we like

  • Discreet design
  • Inspired by interior design elements

What we dislike
