Smiling Paws Pets 2-in-1 cat cube

As I talked about last week, sometimes I procrastinate and procrastinate on a review in search of perfection - until it's not even necessary or useful anymore. We've been hanging onto a couple reviews - so we're calling this week, "review week!" If everything goes as planned (famous last words) we'll share four reviews this week: a book, two kinds of treats, and a cat bed! Stick around to find out what we think!

We published the book review yesterday - you may find it here ... Cat Tails - Heart-Warming Stories about the Cats and Kittens of RESQCATS: blog tour/review.

Disclosure: We received the Smiling Paws Pets 2-in-1 cat cube for free in exchange for an honest review. Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat only shares information we believe would be of interest to our readers. The content is ours - Smiling Paws Pets is not responsible for - nor do we speak for - them.

BC: Bear Cat
MK: Momma Kat
EM: Ellie Mae
The Boy: Momma's fiance

{Momma gets up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom ... and finds Bear in the new cat bed}
MK: He's so adorable ... when he's sleeping ... I can barely stand it. 

{Pause}
MK: {bouncing up and down with excitement} YAY!
BC: You really need to get out more if seeing one of your cats in the middle of the night gets you this excited.

MK: You're awake!
BC: A genius ... you are not.
MK: You and Ellie all but ignored that bed when I took it out of the box. Neither of you showed any interest beyond Ellie whacking the tag around.

BC: That's not ENTIRELY true ... I mean, I guarded the front of it and she stretched over me to look inside. Like I wasn't even there!! GET A CLUE! I swear ... that girl's gotta have her nose in everything! I turn around and she's all up in my grill!


EM: {from the other room} It's not MY fault your grill is so huge! I mean, statistically, it's hard to walk anywhere in here and NOT trip over your grill! I'm up in your grill by just being here.
BC: I know you meant that as a joke about my weight ... but you're right ... you just being here is all up in my grill. BYE!
MK: So you were guarding the cube because you knew you weren't going to use it and you didn't want Ellie to either?
BC: Err ... NO! ... I mean YES! Oh, fiddlesticks!!! ... Err ... maybe?
{Pause}
BC: Was it THAT obvious? Why isn't she scared of me?!? You'd think I haven't given that girl a smackdown a time or two!
MK: A time or two?!
BC: Eh.
MK: At first, I loved that we could use this as a cube to sleep in ... AND a bed when you smoosh the top down. You and Ellie didn't even put more than your heads into the cube. I suppose the inside of cube is a little small for you two since you and Ellie are rather ... robust.
BC: A weight joke? Really?! You got up at 3:51am just to call me fat? I'd LOVE to see you shove YOUR doughnut butt in there!
MK: So at night, in the dark, while I'm sleeping - you use the bed? You didn't want me to see you using it?
BC: Whatever. I just noticed the bed sitting there ... it's soft ... it looked a little lonely ... it was time for my 3:47am nap ...  and it didn't smell like Smellie ... why not?
MK: It is pretty cute though, isn't it? 
BC: What's cute got to do with it? I'm a cat! If it's comfy ... count me in! Besides, I have better things to worry about ... like how to keep Smellie away from my new bed. This cushion is really thick and soft!
MK: That pocket on the side adds a nice touch.
BC: Now all I need is a bazooka.
MK: WHAT?!?!
BC: The pocket is to store one's bazooka while he naps, right?
MK: I'm not sure about that ...
BC: What ELSE would it be for?
MK: I don't ...
BC: Wouldn't it be nice to OWN a bazooka I could put in there?
MK: Nice try. But no.
BC: I'm always screwed!
MK: But you have a nice bed ...
BC: And no bazooka to put in the pocket!
MK: HOLD STILL!
BC: WHA ...
MK: CHEESE!
EM: {walking into the room} HIIII! Did someone say "cheese?"
BC: Ellie, do something! That stupid camera never sleeps! GET IT! We can't have any evidence that I ...
EM: I'll do anything for cheese!
BC: I never said anything about giving you ...
MK: So now Ellie's your enforcer, tough guy?
BC: I'm too comfortable in my new bed to move. You have to pay in advance for my modeling services! No treats, no pictures.
MK: I'm just taking a few ...
{A paw lands on the camera lens}
EM: Hahahahaha. You got too close!

BC: No evidence.
MK: Well, if YOU like the bed, we could tell other people about it because they might want one.
BC: I'm not giving up this one.
MK: No, I meant they'd get their own.
BC: And while we're talking about this, Ellie should get her own too. I'm a Bear ... but I'm not a SHARE Bear.
EM: You're not a CARE Bear either!
BC: Don't touch my bed, SMELLIE!
MK: I love the versatility of the Smiling Paws 2-in-1 cat cube and bed. You get a bed AND a hide-y hole. The insert padding is soft and perfect. 
BC: Blah blah blah. You're awfully chatty at this time of the morning. Usually you're mumbling and walking into walls.
MK: Smiling Paws Pets creates quality cat and dog products, meanwhile providing simple solutions to common issues pet-lovers face. Besides the product itself ... I love how fast the shipping was. And I loved how much they communicated on the status of the order - I always knew exactly where in the process of fulfillment and shipping we were.
BC: {snoring dramatically} ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
EM: Hahahahaha. I think he's saying he doesn't care about that kind of stuff.
MK: Thanks, Ellie. I know that. You and Bear take your cat beds really seriously. You all rotate and hop beds like over-worked prost ...
BC: WHATEVER. Now that my nap is ruined, I'm feeling a bit peck-ish ...
EM: Maybe you're turning into a tasty whole chicken! You can't have your cake and eat it too, you know!
The Boy: You mean Bear can't have his chicken and eat it too? Hahahahahaha.
BC: What is wrong with all of you?!?! It's four AM!!! It's like a ... a ... LOSER party!
The Boy: What does it say about you that you crashed the loser party?
BC: Oh, SHUT UP!
{Bear leaves to grab a snack}
MK: I saw Bear using the new bed when I got up to go to the bathroom. He's pretty darn cute ...
The Boy: ... when he's asleep!
BC: {from the other room} WHY DOES EVERYONE KEEP SAYING THAT?!?! You act like I'm a huge pain-in-the ...
{Pause}
BC: {from the other room} Huh. Never mind. I'm kind of proud of that!
MK: You and Bear are bed connoisseurs. It's like musical beds around ...
{Momma turns around to see Ellie in the new bed}
MK: Uh oh.
EM: I think we need another bed - because I'm not leaving this one ... it's comfy!
MK: ELLIE! Get out of there before Bear gets back! He'll go on a rampage and break a bunch of stuff.
EM: This is MY bed now, Momma!
MK: Huh. I don't hear anything from back there ... either he's up to something or he fell asleep.
EM: He DID have to walk down the hall to the food bowl ... it's a miracle he made it that far without falling asleep!
The Boy: Do you want the good news or the bad news?
MK: Uh oh.
The Boy: The good news is that Bear's cute. 
MK: Because he's asleep?
The Boy: BINGO!
MK: What's the bad news?
The Boy: He's passed out in the middle of our bed. I'm pretty sure we won't fit.
MK: Ellie, how about sharing that bed with Daddy and ...
EM: Don't even THINK about it!

  1. Hmm, two in one, you say? Yet they can’t fit both of you in it? Bear, I think you needs to send it back and get another one the right size! Not that Ellie will be using it, but you have to think of those torties! And whilst your at it get them to give you a compliment bazooka and cup holder for your aiding in the design process...

    1. If any cat should have a bazooka ... it's you, CK! Of course, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near you when that happens (no offense) ... biting isn't quite the same as heavy artillery!

  10. WHOA. So this is like a two-in-one kinda deal? A cube AND a bed? SWEET. Looks like a good size for manly cats, too. I LIKE it! purrs

  15. What a great review, you guys! Sam still loves her cube too, but I'm sure glad I didn't have to get up at 4 am to get photos of her in it!
    This note is for Momma Kat: Thank you so much for your kind comment about Cricket today. You've always had such nice things to say about her, and I know how much you appreciated her spunk and her spirit. That meant so much to me, and means even more to me now. ♥♥ It's hard for me to express how I'm feeling, and I hope "thank you" for loving her is enough. Friends like you are what is getting me through this awful time.

  16. Now, Bear Cat and Ellie Mae know a good thing when it falls into their livingroom. The bed looks so comfy, I wouldn't mind one either.


    Very good review BC and EM.

  17. This was the funnest review! I enjoyed reading this.

    Bear, you could put treats in your bazooka holder until you get a bazooka. Not a bad compromise?

    1. We're so glad you think so! Thank you.

  20. That's a pretty cool and versatile bed. There's something about the 'other' sibling wanting to check things and new beds out around here too. Bear, if it's any consolation. Sisters are just like that. And so are brothers come to think of it. 😊

  21. Love that this is a 2 in 1 kinda thing! My cats are fans of both being inside things AND on top of things. So I think it's a toss up as to which formation would be most popular here. Great review!

    1. Thanks! I was surprised Ellie wasn't interested in the cube formation!

  22. Yep, Bear, I think you need a second bed. I'm suspecting that this ones slated to be added to Bear's spaceship. I think he's already called up the contractors to start work. Tee hee hee!

    ReplyDelete
  23. You two may need a time share agreement for that bed, Bear and Ellie!

  24. Great fotos. That looks like a really comfy bed. We've seen a couple of these 'round the blogosphere. Glad ya'll like it. Enjoy your naps. Big hugs
