Desert Bus Cat Cube

Celebrate 10 years of Desert Bus with a one-of-a-kind plush cat bed! Everyone knows that Desert Bus is the best time of the year, but you may not have realized how much your cat loves it too. It only makes sense though - during Desert Bus their favorite human is always around the house, everyone keeps strange hours and only takes brief cat naps, and there are plenty of opportunities for pets and couch cuddles. With a subtle blue and yellow exterior and a full reproduction of the Desert Bus logo on the interior, this cat cube is a great reminder of the amazing experience that is Desert Bus.

The cube measures ~17" on all sides and more...
