It’s the middle of April and you know what that means? No, I’m not talking about unpredictable weather, tax-induced nervous meltdowns, and kosher confections (well hello, Joyva chocolate-covered marshmallow twists). I’m referring to the springtime explosion of CUTE BABY ANIMALS.
Honestly, from puppies to pygmy goats to penguins to the true mascots of this season, dainty bunnies, chicks, and lambs, there’s no avoiding the springtime deluge of cute baby animal-ness. It’s enough to make even the crankiest, most allergy-afflicted folks crack a smile and take a spin on Cute Roulette.
So where all these cute baby animals running amok supposed to live? Dwell recently spotlighted a cute animal (and not necessarily of the baby variety) housing solution in the form of Design Objects for Pets from Pousse Créative.
Based in Lille, France, Pousse Créative’s delightful, eco-modern animal shelters — henhouses, rabbit hutches, bird boxes, and indoor kennels for cats and small dogs— are meant to “enhance the links between 'Man–Nature.'" Or, in other words (and as evidenced in the above photo), they’re meant to make your home look extra hip while making the critters that live in and around it look extra cute.
Still, even if you're not on the market for a modern, made-in-France herb garden/litter box/shelter for your beloved Pekingese, Persian, or pet bunny, it's still worth heading over to Pousse Créative homepage to read more about this fun, eco-minded venture and, of course, get your cute baby animal fix.
