Introducing for the first time the Gypsee® by Smoochdoggie for a cat’s wild side.

Cats welcome Gypsees in to homes across America.

Ancient Egyptian history is full of references to one of nature’s most elegant and mysterious creatures; the cat. This rich tradition was a source of inspiration for this new product.

The evolution from wild cats to the modern domestic housecat has been a curious progression, which makes one wonder how cats became the most popular pet in the world.

However it happened that the bonds between cats and their “owners” are real and go well beyond human needs for mice control.

“I have to admit, with all the cats we have kept over the years, each one has taught me something valuable about life” says Gypsee® designer and creator Mike Faiola.

The Gypsee® was first inspired by acknowledging that cats have a primal instinct to hunt. “A powerful key to understanding a cat’s behavior is observation, but it becomes far more effective when coupled with what we know about life in the wild. And by nature, cats are very efficient hunters that rely on stealth to capture their prey”.

A lair is part of the natural habitat for cats, and is by definition “a place where a wild animal sleeps”. With this as a reference for design considerations, the cover is a flowing tent-like structure, which makes the Gypsee® an indoor lair of sorts.

Sitting freely on a plush mat the fashionable cover creates a stealthy see-through refuge, without restricting movement, which provides the natural freedom cats desire.

The fashionable Gypsee® is more than a portable place for cats to sleep; it’s a hide-and-seek haven with possibilities limited only to one’s imagination.
