cats love empty cardboard boxes, but owners probably don’t want them in their living rooms — unless they are studio poopy cat‘s ‘landmark’ architecture dwellings. a team of amsterdam-based creatives has come up with seven designs that mimic iconic structures found around the world. cats, and other small pets, can call these global monuments ‘home’ — the sphinx of giza in egypt; the eiffel tower in france; the white house in the united states; saint basil’s cathedral in russia; the taj mahal in india, pagoda temples of south asia; and a mayan temple from south america.

interior details increase the interaction between toy and pet — for example, the eiffel tower has a miniature elevator hanging from a rope on the inside. humans can add a small snack in the top, which will drop down once the pet shakes the string. additionally, all of the landmarks are made from recycled cardboard. the double-layered use of two thick sheets of flutes results in a super strong structure. the ‘landmark’ series is currently seeking funding on kickstarter, here
