Day 2 of 12 Days of Giveaways is presented by Cat in the Box! The company sells whimsical cardboard box toys for cats who think inside the box. Founder and creator Dawn LaFontaine sent the cats a Mega Milk Carton for review. Let’s see what they thought!
Sophie Investigates the Mega Milk Carton
Sophie: What’s this, Mama?
Mama: What do you think it is?
Sophie: I don’t know. I better take a closer look.
Sophie: Hellllooo in there!
Sophie: Whoa, Dexter. Whatever this is…it’s amazing.
Big Cat Challenge
So, the Mega Milk Carton passed Sophie’s inspection. But will it fit our biggest cat in the house?
Woodrow: Mama, am I gonna fit in here?
Woodrow: I fit, Mama!
Dexter: Congratulations. Now get out!
The cats weren’t sure about getting inside the box until I turned it on its side. All five cats have tried it out (even Harley who isn’t into boxes!), but Sophie pretty much owns the box and will climb in if it’s on its side or upright. When on its side, she’ll lay down and stay put with her head popping out one of the holes. There have even been a few scuffles between Sophie and Dexter as to whose turn it is to occupy the box. Sophie usually wins.
About Cat in the Box
Dawn LaFontaine was inspired to develop the boxes and start the company after a visit to her mother’s cat sitter. Dawn says, “As I stepped into this woman’s otherwise impeccably decorated living room, I noticed that it looked like a loading dock, with shipping cartons everywhere. She saw me looking around and sheepishly explained, ‘They’re for the cats.’ I already knew that cats liked boxes (there is real science to explain why) but it got me thinking, why do people put up with ugly Amazon boxes in their homes?”
And so, Cat in the Box was born! Currently, there are two boxes to choose from – the Mega Milk Carton (which we reviewed) and the Monster Cheese Wedge. Both are for sale on the Cat in the Box website and currently priced at $22.50 each. (But wait – we have a discount code below for $5.00 off one box!)
A Dedicated Foster Home
Although Dawn has created a company that develops cat products, she currently doesn’t have any resident cats at home. Why? Because she’s a dedicated foster home for cats from the shelter where she volunteers at! Dawn recently just finished fostering a litter of kittens who were separated from their mother too early.
Check out the kittens in action! Starsky (all black), Hutch (all gray), Jane (black and white), and Maura (Siamese mix).

Sophie: It’s very roomy inside. Big enough for Woodrow (as we found out).
Sophie: Okay, now get out. Buh-bye for now!
