Climb-It Cat Launches New Eco-friendly Washable Cat Perch Cover on Kickstarter


Climb-It Cat, makers of eco-friendly cat perch covers in Asheville, NC, launched their first Kickstarter project today with a goal of raising $10,000.

Climb-It Cat's Cat Perch Cover is the easiest, most eco-friendly way to keep cat perches clean and protected. No more spending hours trying to vacuum all that cat hair off a cat perch. With the Cat Perch Cover, simply slip the cover off, wash it, dry it, and slip it back on the cat perch – the elastic edges make it super easy to remove and reinstall.

  • Machine washable: When your cat perch cover starts getting dirty, simply remove it, throw it in the washer, dry it and it's ready to use again. It's that easy!
  • Eco-friendly: The Cat Perch Cover, made with organic cotton, keeps your cat perches clean and protected, making them last longer and keeping them out of landfills. And, because they want nothing to go to waste, they will use leftover scraps to make the zero-waste Pouncin' Pouch cat toy. Almost all carpeting used in cat perches is made from synthetic, petroleum-based fibers, and then sprayed with stain-resistant chemicals. The Cat Perch Cover will provide a stylish protective barrier between these chemicals and beloved furry friends. 
  • Made in America: Everything will be made in Asheville, NC, by Sewlink, a small, local, woman-owned sewing company that pays a living wage.
  • Charitable giving: A portion of the proceeds will be donated to animal shelters and foundations across the US to help cats in need. 

Additional Features and details: 
  • The Cat Perch Cover will fit any cat perch measuring 10 to 14 inches in diameter with a lip of 1 to 4 inches.
  • Round version for round cat perches and square version for square or rectangular perches.
  • Made with organic cotton fabric with padding sewn in between the two layers of the cover.
  • Reversible design. 
  • Machine washable.
  • Patent pending.

About the Kickstarter Project

The Climb-It Cat Kickstarter campaign runs from November 7 to December 13. As with all Kickstarter campaigns, it's all or nothing: They need to reach their goal of $10k by the deadline or they won't receive any of the money pledged.

Climb-It Cat has designed and completed the first batch of prototypes, but needs funding help with the costs of the first full production run. With the success of this Kickstarter project, they will start producing large numbers of cat perch covers so they can give back to our community and help cats in need by donating a portion of the proceeds to animal shelters and foundations across the US.
