Your cat already acts like a god. And you probably treat it like one. So why not take the next step with this cardboard Shinto shrine for cats, created by a Japanese cardboard company. From scratching pad and hiding spot to litter box cover, there are multiple ways to use the shrine to further your devotion.
The cardboard shrine was developed by Howay Industry, an Osaka-based manufacturer of cardboard and cardboard products. Unsure of how much demand there would be for a cardboard shinto shrine for cats, the company turned to crowdfunding site kibidango, where they quickly surpassed their goal of 500,000 yen (about $4800 usd) and have already raised three times the amount. The basic shrine is going for 4840 yen (about $46 usd).

Any sense of whether they can ship internationally?

Hi Rennie – as of now they’re only domestic but we’re currently in touch with the manufacturer to see if they might consider letting us sell the item in our shop. We’ll keep you posted!

I write for a major pet website, and would love to be able to point people in the U.S. to where they can buy this. Please let me know if Spoon & Tamago decides to carry it.
