We can learn a thing or two from cats– they never get bored. If there’s a box in the house, you can bet your cat will find it and make a day of it. We have a symbiotic relationship that way– we buy a product and cats play in its packaging. The benefit for them is playing in a box, while ours is that we get to watch them play in a box. To make our role a little more exciting, Taesung Yoon designed Pulpet, a DIY paper cat house.
Pulpet initially consists of eco-friendly paper cutouts, which are ultimately handcrafted and put together to assemble a cat house in the shape of a geometric, sitting cat. Users can easily assemble Pulpet without any additional building components. Prepared with all the necessary contents for assembly, Pulpet is easily constructed by adhering the geometric faces together to form the shape of a cat. If like me, the shape of a cat doesn’t readily come to your creative eye, an assembly manual comes included with the paper house cutouts.
To make Pulpet eco-friendly, Taesung Yoon sourced FSC-certified paper material harvested from forests that are responsibly managed and environmentally conscious. Since cats can’t help but scratch and claw at cardboard, Taesung Yoon chose paper material that doesn’t puncture easily and won’t elicit any scratching from your cat. Further enhancing Pulpet’s durability factor, the paper comes equipped with lightfast technology so that Pulpet’s black exterior won’t fade in sunlight, measures a neutral pH level, and uses chlorine-free bleaching pulp, which protects both your cat and the environment.

Cats love to hide in boxes because they recall hunting instincts.
Precise measuring of each assembly piece is crucial for building Pulpet.
