5 Cool Beds Your Cat Would Love to Nap In
You know that your kitty enjoys snoozing the day away, so why not give her a newer, better cat bed than what she’s already using? The right bed will be one that your cat will love napping in for hours, but it will also be stylish and fit in with the rest of your décor, rather than screaming, “cats live here.”
Check out the five cool cat beds below to upgrade your kitty’s sleeping quarters.
- A Cat Hammock
Cat Crib is one brand that has produced a really great cat hammock that you can fit underneath just about any chair in your home. Your kitty will have an ideal spot to call her own where she can hide and sleep, and you won’t have to take up any floor space like you would with a traditional cat bed. If you don’t particularly like the look of pet furniture around your home, this product is a great way to get rid of excess clutter and still cater to your feline friend’s needs.
- A Heated Cat Bed
If your kitty is always searching for the warmest spot in the house to nap in, consider getting your furry companion her very own heated cat bed. This type of bed could also be perfect for an older kitty or one who has arthritic pain. Basically, the bed will generate a gentle amount of warmth, thanks to a built-in heater. Soft material throughout the bed will help distribute the warmth while providing plenty of support to your cat’s body. Purchase one that is covered to give your pet a really cozy spot to hide and nap in, or one with a partial covering if that’s what your cat would prefer instead. Check out K&H Pet Products for some options.
- A Cat Ball Bed
A cat bed in the shape of a ball is a good option for kitties who prefer to hide away when they nap, and it can also provide a great little play area because your cat can hide inside the bed and then jump out and pounce on a toy or a feline companion. Products by The Cat Ball come in a variety of designs and feature two openings for your pet to use to enter and exit, as well as play and nap. If your cat is always finding cozy little spaces to sleep in and prefers to be covered and protected, this bed could be a fun way to give her exactly what she needs.
- A Cat Cave Bed
Even more privacy and coziness could be provided by a cat cave bed because it is covered on all sides except the opening. Your kitty can crawl in and nap for hours, or she could rest her head on the opening and keep the rest of her body warm inside the bed. You can purchase this type of cat bed from a variety of manufacturers, and they come in a wide range of shapes, from teepees and circles, to squares and cylinders.
- A Cat Bed That Doesn’t Look Like a Cat Bed
Some cat beds don’t even look like cat beds because they look like stylish pieces of furniture or décor instead. A couple examples are the Cheeky Chaise and the Sweet Lounge by Marmalade, which feature a contoured design that your cat will love to relax on, as well as a material that doubles as a scratching post so your kitty doesn’t scratch up your furniture. Or if you don’t have a lot of floor space and you have a cat who loves being up high, you can search for cat beds that you can mount on your wall like a shelf.
With so many fun and stylish cat beds to choose from, you can do something different for your unique kitty. Try out a few options to see which ones your pet prefers. Before long, you’ll find the beds that give your kitty the warmth and comfort she craves.
