Shopping for cat and dog gear when you’re trying to keep a cohesive theme to your apartment or house is not always a walk in the park. Most of the time you’ll be met with either visually unappealing products that stick out like a sore thumb or sky-high price tags that you’d expect to pay for your own bed—not one for the cats!

That being said, it is possible to find cute and functional pet home items if you know what to look for. Case in point: the Valentine’s Day cat scratcher playhouse from Aldi.

Whether you’re looking for a cozy new bed for your cats to curl up in or you’re just hoping to score a cute Valentine’s Day gift for the true love of your life while maintaining your status as best cat parent, this Valentine’s Day-themed cat playhouse is just the ticket. And the best part is that it’ll actually suit your decor—even if you don’t go all-out on the Valentine’s Day decorations.

The adorable cardboard playhouse is available in three festive colorways and styles: a classic pink-and-red Valentine’s Day design complete with candy hearts and lollipops, an elegant Parisian-inspired cafe and bakery, and a more muted modern farmhouse style that has subtly decked out for the holiday with brown and blush-colored decorations.
