Hepper Hero Background

The Hepper Story

Since 2007, Hepper has made unique pet products that are designed to work for your pets needs while looking great, too!

as seen in

Hepper® is a products and resources company for pets that was born from that universal thought: “There’s got to be a better way”. We realized that a house full of cats invariably means rooms full of ugly cat toys and furniture.

A search for truly innovative, functional, cool beds was fruitless and thus, spawned the creation of the original Pod and Nest – the first products of many home furnishings from Hepper.

For over a decade, hepper has proudly furnished homes with designer cat furniture and products loved by both pets and their parents.

Who is hepper for?

If you are familiar with the Eames’s, know Herman Miller from Herman Munster and like classic designs, then Hepper is for you. Or, if you have cats or kittens and want something for them that will just make them happy, then Hepper is for you. Either way, we are here to provide you with thoughtful, timeless, and functional products.

Our designs for Hepper are unique. We are in the business of creating something new for pets. We are not driven by the mass market and the whims of big-box retailers.

We are driven by our desire to create special products for you – products that function, look great, and that have a point of view. We hope that our pieces add to your decor, and when they are not being slept in, scratched or eaten out of, they are just great to look at. Consider them conversation pieces or mini sculptures that you and your pets can enjoy together.

what’s next?

For us, design is important, and we recognize that it’s more of an art than a science. We are always tweaking, revising, and evolving our products, making them better, bit by bit.

You are part of this process. We listen (and appreciate) all of your feedback, and incorporate it into our future offerings. We always have something new cooking; something that will solve a problem in the world of pets.
