Wordless Wednesday Party Featuring The Cat Ball Review & Giveaway

Magellan -Proud Cat Ball Owner

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Magellan And Tsunami Review The Cat Ball

When was the last time that your cats discovered something so exciting and so wondrous in their home that it literally stopped them in their tracks and caused them to turn their heads in awe?

When was the last time your husband didn’t mind if your cats’ prized new possession resided in the middle of the living room floor – their favorite place to play – because it blended so beautifully with your décor?

If you and your cats have never experienced anything quite like I’m describing, you’ve probably never encountered The Cat Ball!

Magellan Sitting In Cat Ball

The Cat Ball is the coolest gift you could ever surprise your beloved cats with! It’s a fabulous place for your cats to sleep – and to play – and to let their imaginations run wild!

The creative genius behind the Cat Ball is Jennifer, a cat-loving costume designer who was hired in 2009 to design a soccer-ball shaped mascot costume for the Seattle Sounders. The prototype for that project served as the inspiration for the Cat Ball, which is available in a wide variety of unique designs in gorgeous fabrics, including the Original Cat Ball, the Cat Canoe and the whimsical Shark Cat Ball Cat Bed!

My Cats Discover The Cat Ball

Tsunami and Magellan have been totally obsessed with their beautiful Cat Ball In Ivory and Blue Paisley Fabric from the moment they first discovered it! Truth be told, Magellan has been rather possessive of it – he likes to think of this Cat Ball as his very own – so if you have multiple cats in your household, you might want to consider placing multiple Cat Balls in different parts of your home in order to keep the peace!


Magellan loves to run in and out of it (the Cat Ball is designed with one 10” inch opening and one 6” inch opening that he can easily fit through) and to reach through the holes to hunt for his toys. He also likes to roll around in it during play time.

Tsunami in the Cat Ball

Tsunami likes to lay in it every chance he gets. He’d love to spend more time in it if his jealous little brother didn’t pounce on his head every time he saw Tsunami inside of it! In Tsunami’s more peaceful moments – whenever Magellan is not around – he enjoys playing peek-a-boo with us from inside of his new Cat Ball!

When they are done playing, Magellan and Tsunami love having a safe and cozy place to relax! The six-paneled hexagonal design is 17” inches in diameter and 16”inches in height. It’s not only perfectly sized for your cats, large and small, but rumor has it that many a household dog has been found trying to transform your feline’s favorite Cat Ball into a Doggie Den of their own!

Magellan Lounging In His Cat Ball

The Cat Ball is the perfect resting spot, napping spot, relaxing spot, and recreation spot for your cherished cats (and even your darling little dogs) – all in one! As you can see, your cats will swell with pride when you present them with a Cat Ball of their very own!

Best of all, Jennifer is willing to spread Cat Ball love to your cats wherever they live – inside or outside of the United States, all around the globe – so don’t hesitate to visit the Cat Ball Website to learn more about this fabulous product AND enter our GIVEAWAY for a chance to win a Cat Bed of your very own for your favorite feline!

    I have two kitties that I think would love this Cat bed although they probably would fight over it! I love them all but would probably go with the large cat ball…one of my kitties is a big cat….and I love the leopard print! Visiting you from (HOT) Upstate NY!

    • The Leopard Print is one of my favorites AnnMarie – I’d definitely recommend the large cat ball like mine if you have two cats – I will be sharing a code so that if your cats are like mine (they both love it but one totally claims it for their own) you can pick up a second one at a discount for your other cat!
      In the meantime, stay cool – best of luck in the giveaway – and my boys are originally from upstate NY so a special wave to you! 🙂

  2. Melissa says:

    The Cat Balls look like so much fun! =)

    My favorite would be the Bohemian Pet Bed in Brown and Black Batik. I think this would make a awesome gift for any cat owner!

    • I am amazed Melissa that Jennifer is able to make so many beautiful Cat Balls in so many different designs and colors!
      What a great pattern you’ve chosen!
      Best of luck to you – this would look so lovely in your new home! 🙂

  3. We love our Cat Ball…but with 3 of us, we need another one!

    • With 3 of you – you need a Cat Ball in every room!
      Jennifer has sent over the code for an awesome special she is offering Create With Joy readers that I’ll be sharing soon.
      In the meantime, thanks for sharing your experience and best of luck in the giveaway!

  4. Molly says:

    They look really cool. I can tell you now Mr Wawa would love one of those although because he is ALL the cat I suspect he would hang out of it everywhere but that wouldn’t stop him loving it


    • It is really funny when you see them hanging out of the holes!
      Cats LOVE the Cat Ball and seem to find ways to squeeze inside – even the large ones!
      Magellan is 16 1/2 pounds and he fits inside with plenty of room to spare.
      Jennifer says it should fit 19 pounds without a problem.
      Tsunami is 23+ pounds. I was hoping to get a full test of the Cat Ball on him – he made it half way in on several occasions – but each time before he could curl up and settle, his jealous brother Magellan would come tearing across the room to pounce on him which effectively sent Magellan flying out of the Cat Ball (hint – if you own multiple cats – you NEED multiple Cat Balls!) So, I don’t know if Tsunami can actually curl up inside of it since jealous Magellan will have none of that – but Tsunami likes to hang out and peek and play (on full alert) whenever he can!

  5. Michelle says:

    The cat ball looks perfect for the new kitten I am planning on getting! 🙂

  6. Oh the boys would really love this! They love hiding in boxes and cupboards but the Catball would be a huge hit! Marty loves curling up and has destroyed a couple of cubes so this is right up his alley! Thanks for the link to the original site!
    Marty’s Mom

    • Oh Marty – you are a destruco force just like my Magellan!
      You will love rolling around in one of these beautiful Cat Balls
      (or perhaps the Shark Ball is more your speed?)

  7. Colette S says:

    I love the comfort of the Cat Canoe in Aqua Kittens Fabric

  8. Your cat’s names are adorable. One of my cats’ names is “Bo” because when he was little, before I ‘d even decided to keep him (he was living outside and so sick we took in his whole litter), he was walking on my iPad and he typed out “Bo.” So, he was named and he was mine. I think he’d like the shark bed. 🙂

    • What an amazing story Alisa – that’s the first time I’ve heard of a cat telling his parents his name!
      Best of luck to you.
      The shark bed is a favorite among us cat lovers!

  9. Emma says:

    That ball looks great. I could see my cats sleeping in it! Too bad the kitties are not included with the prize!

  10. As the mama of two sweet kitty cats and a volunteer of a cat rescue, I’m so want to win this Cat Ball! Thanks!

  11. KT Fit Kitty says:

    Well I have never heard of the Cat Ball until now and I must say… I LOVE IT! I think my cats would love it too! I have 3 cats and I can see all 3 of them wanting to sleep in this! I have already chosen the one I want…Grey Calico! My other favourite is the Shark – OMGoodness this is FABULOUS! I’m in Canada and I can be reached at fitkitty1@gmail.com . Thank you for an AWESOME giveaway!

    • So glad you like the Cat Ball, KT, and that you heard about it through Create With Joy! 🙂
      Yes, chances are, all 3 of your cats are going to want this – thankfully, Jennifer is offering a discount as well through the end of August!
      Best of luck to you – it is certainly hard to pick just one as a fave! 🙂

  12. That is a fine bed – cum hidey hol come play tunnel!!

  13. My cat would love that!!!

  14. Thanks for the heads up on your giveaways! 🙂

    The CatBall I like the best…there are two I really like.
