With so many cat products hitting shelves every week, we asked our favorite kitty-centric blog, Moderncat, to roundup their faves in a bi-monthly column we're calling Moderncat's Modern Finds.

Cats find corrugated cardboard totally irresistible. Not only is it great for kitty to scratch and nap on, it's eco-friendly as well! Cardboard cat items are made from recycled materials, so once your feline has loved it to pieces, you can just toss it in the recycling bin one more time. Check out these incredible cardboard creations from some of the top designers of cat products.
