Whether you want to surround your lynx with luxury or your tabby with terry cloth, you’re keeping up with the attitudes of the ancient Egyptians. About 3000 BCE, this civilization didn’t really worship cats – they revered cats. They thought that gods often took the form of animals, especially cats. Later, they did worship the cat god Bastet, who had the body of a woman and the face of a cat. She protected the home, domesticity, and women.
If you’re ready to give your sweet kitty a comfy place to nap, check out some of our favorites here.
Did you know that cats have more bones than we do? Humans have 206 bones and cats have 230. Rest comfortably knowing all those bones are surrounded by comfy vegan shag. The donut-shaped edge of the bed is filled with an air-holding fiber that stays fluffy longer. It’s also designed with your pet’s head and neck support in mind. This 23-inch by 23-inch cat bed is a light grey cozy shag that doesn’t have any added chemicals or dyes. A 30-inch by 40-inch matching blanket gives you a chance to tuck in your kitty. This combination is the smallest of the four sizes, but all seven colors are machine-washable. We think your cat will find this bed dreamy.
Cats like napping where it’s warm just like we do. This self-warming cat pad has a specially crafted filling that reflects back the heat your cat creates, keeping your kitty warm. Or maybe you have multiple fur-babies like President Lincoln, who had four cats living in the White House with him. With over 30 other color choices, these are little portable pads, great for taking the chill off floors of kennels and crates. The small size measures 17-inches by 22-inches, but there are seven larger sizes, all machine washable. The soft grey faux fur is quilted at the top of the pad for your feline’s extra comfort.
The igloo look
Whether you’ve got one cat or a clowder, glaring, clutter, or pounce of cats, each one will love this purr-fect little cat tent. Or pull out the high-density fiberfill cushion and put it on the top of the tent and transform it into a pet bed. All the fabrics are machine washable, and we chose dark grey, but there’s also beige and light grey. Cats look photo-worthy cuddling in these little tents. Did you know the first cat video was 23 seconds long? Thomas A. Edison recorded the odd short called “Boxing Cats” in 1894. Put this cat bed on your bed and let your kitten curl up in comfort, then fold it away or pack it for your trip.
Do you ever feel like your cat is talking to you? Could be. They’ve found that cats have a unique vocabulary with their owners and have up to 100 different vocalizations; dogs only have 10. Maybe your cat is asking for this handmade felt bed cave. Crafted from 100-percent natural Merino wool felt, your kitty will love playing, relaxing, and sleeping in and on this medium-sized cat bed. This felt is both soft and durable, too. Measuring 16-inches by 16-inches by 10-inches high, this light grey, eco-friendly wool cave looks like a piece of art.
Great for the RV
If your cat is like most of the estimated 220 million domestic cats in the world, then your kitty sleeps between 12- and 16-hours a day. Why not give them total comfort with this soft, plush, 19-inch round, donut-shaped cat bed that’s nearly 9-inches tall? Your cat will stretch and sleep on soft machine-washable plush in the car or on the dining room chair. With a non-skid bottom, this cat bed stays put on tile, wood, concrete, and camping surfaces. Available in a number of sizes and colors, this extra small cushion measures 19-inches by 19-inches.
