The Kitty Play Zone is ideal for families with kittens or young playful cats.

Automated Pet Care Products, Inc., creator of the popular automatic cat litter box, the Litter-Robot™, launches a new product called the Kitty Play Zone™. The product was designed by a 10-year- old girl and is aimed at promoting playful interaction between cats and children.

The Kitty Play Zone™ is a cardboard playhouse and feeding station for kittens and cats. It was designed with an internal climbing tower, loft area, and roof opening to promote fun interaction and playtime between kids and their pets. Brad Baxter, President of Automated Pet Care Products states, “The Kitty Play Zone™ is ideal for families with kittens or young playful cats.” The interactive features are kid friendly and create a playful space for family members and their cats. Mr. Baxter goes on to say, “Kids have just as much fun assembling and decorating the Kitty Play Zone™ as the cats do playing inside.” For more mature cats, The Kitty Play Zone™ can be used as a private 'hang out' or cat bed.

Mr. Baxter’s daughter, Caroline, 10, came up with the concept as she sat in on a product development meeting while visiting her father at work. She designed the original The Kitty Play Zone™ to be a fun, easy-to-build playhouse for her cats and included the white colored panels to allow decorating and customization.

“The Kitty Play Zone™ can also be used as a feeding station for cats of all ages,” states Mr. Baxter. Two stainless steel bowls are included with the Kitty Play Zone™ and fit into bowl pockets providing a semi-private feeding area. These bowls are easily accessed from a side panel.

The Kitty Play Zone™ is made in the USA with the exception of the stainless steel bowls which are made in India. The product debuted at the Global Pet Expo on March 4, 2015 and can be purchased from select retail stores or directly from the Kitty Play Zone™ website
