Design a Sustainable Cat Bed #CaturdayArt

Happy Caturday!

Before we show you our photo art for this weekend, we wanted to tell you about a great competition for all you artsy creative types.

Design a Sustainable Cat Bed Contest Sustainable Cat Bed Design Contest

Tuft and Paw are looking for a new way to think about furniture that helps cats, humans, and the Earth.

If you think you've got a great design idea for a sustainable cat bed then get your entry in now and you could win $1,500!

The winning design will be produced in the U.S. and promoted as one of Tuft + Paw’s new flagship products and will also be donated to shelters across the country.

Submissions deadline is October 31st 2017.

The winner will be decided on November 30th 2017. 

Competition Details

Create an original design for cat furniture that meets the below criteria.

1. It's sustainable

As part of Tuft + Paw’s commitment to environmentally responsible products, it must be made of ethically sourced and produced materials that don't harm our planet.

2. It's affordable

When your piece goes into production, we want it to be inexpensive enough that any cat owner can have it in his or her home.

3. It's beautiful

Don’t skimp on style- we want to see something that adds a “wow” factor to modern homes and looks more like it belongs to an interior designer than a Tabby cat.

4. It's easy to ship

We want your design to be our customers’ go-to choice when they donate an item to a shelter. This means it has to be lightweight and easy to ship. Bonus points for collapsible flat-pack shapes.

5. It's practical

Along with your physical prototype, give us technical drawings that specify exact dimensions and instructions for how it will be produced. Good luck!

Any questions can be sent to


Right, now onto this week's Caturday Art Blog Hop!

Mum says she can't remember what photo art app or filter she used to create this. But that doesn't matter as I really love it as it's quite subtle.

Simply edit photos of your pets or any animal using one of the many free photo editors available online - or any editing program you like. Enjoy creating and sharing your artsy pet photos. It's a great way to find new blogging friends and followers!

Disclaimer: I was not financially compensated for this post. However, I will be sent the winning cat bed once it has finished production. Full disclosure.
