Sure, Why Not?: Cat Camps, Tiny Indoor/Outdoor Tents For Cats

August 29, 2018

These are Cat Camp tents for cats (and small dogs I suppose). They're suitable for indoor and outdoor use and provide your cat with a cozy place to relax while still being able to see what's going on around them. They cost $60, come in blue, red and orange, and have a fluffy microfiber interior. I just bought one. "Did you?" No. I thought about it though before coming to my senses and realizing my cat isn't going to appreciate anything I spend $60 of my hard-earned money on. "How long did you sleep at work today?" Not quite four hours. Still, I know for a fact if I bought one of these and set it up at home that within five minutes my cat would be asleep in a reusable grocery bag in the kitchen. And on a related note: is it possible for a cat to poop while crawling under a low bed? Asking for a friend with a smell in their room who's afraid to look under the bed but really needs this mystery solved before their girlfriend gets home.

Keep going for a couple more shots.

Thanks to Shannon S, who agrees cats like to go camping too, especially if there's fishing involved.

    I always did want one of those display tents that you see in retail stores that sell camping goods. This is pretty close to that but probably more durable.

  • Deksam

    I had one for my cat out side 5 years ago, he loved it, always in it waiting for the door to open, and kept him out of the rain and cool winds. it lasted 4 years but fell apart due to sun bleaching.

    Just get some boxes.

    I feel like it's a skeuomorphic nod to the original tent based design.(I just wanted to use skeuomorphic :P)

  • Kevin Spillane

    They should make them for dogs and call them Pup Tents.

  • Gingerbread

    They sell cheap toddler tents for like $5 I'd rather buy those instead.

  • Closet Nerd

    Always been a dog person,
    my wife [Egyptian] is a cat person,
    So we have 3 cats....

    [how we wound up with 3 cats, 6 weeks ago]
    so we went to get a kitten from the shelter for the kids... came home with two kittens and their mother....

    and now I'm a cat person too

  • James Mcelroy

    Having cats does not make you a cat person.

  • Closet Nerd

    You're right... the fact that I love them and play with them all the time and buy stupid shit for them makes me a cat person

    Guaranteed litter box, it even has the plastic crackly bottom.Keep near the garbage because it will be in the next load.With or without the cat in it ;)

  • Colin Pineda

  • Irina Abramovich

    Hubree is the best kitten EVAr! Yay to a cat tent— it’d be fun if you COULD bring your kitten camping with you!

  • MargotP

    Or, if you are cheap. Steal one of the tiny display tents from Academy.

  • Megatron Jenkins

    Whatever works.

  • Noam

    Why does it look like the entrance flap shuts? Is it so you can lock your cat in it? Or is it for the cat to shut when he needs privacy? Why would a cat ever need privacy?

    With or without the cat in it ;)

  • TheQiwiMan

    I love my little kitty, but I don't love her enough to spend 60 bucks for this.

  • Mark

    agreed...get a box, tip it over, and cut a door in it.

    I bet the box that it comes in will be used more than the tent.
