Choosing the Right Bed for Your Cat
Sometimes, the best sleep starts with a full belly. And, when looking for healthy, good food that your cat will have sweet dreams about, check out our frozen raw, freeze-dried raw, dry cat food, and wet food options.
When all is said and done, you’ll want to choose a bed that your cat is going to love. In order to make the right decision, think about your cat’s tendencies and how those can apply to their sleeping arrangement. If your cat loves to bury themselves in a pile of blankets, then an enclosed cat bed might make the most sense. Or, if your feline friend likes to stretch out, then a plush pad could be the better route. If you’re not sure what would be best for your cat, then maybe the following options will spark some inspiration!
Different Kinds of Cat Beds
Just like humans, cats have different ways of sleeping, which means different kinds of beds will work for them. Some of the best types of cat beds include:
If your cat loves basking in the sun, being warm, and looking outside, then a mounted window perch is just the thing for them. A window penthouse offers the chance for your cat to feel soothed by the direct sunlight while falling asleep to the beautiful scenery.
Felines that love space gravitate towards plush pads because they can extend their paws and move around as much as their heart desires! This kind of cat bed is also great for on the go if you frequently travel with your furry friend.
For all of the snuggly cats out there, enclosed caves are for you. Caves offer not only comfort and darkness, but they also provide privacy when your feline needs some alone time or is feeling shy.
If your cat is especially adventurous, then a bed with some elevation could be their perfect place to sleep. For the felines that like to live on the edge, some height might soothe them and allow them to drift into dreamland.
Calling all seniors cats, orthopedic solutions are for you! For the cats that are aging or have physical ailments, an orthopedic cat bed can help tremendously and provide comfort they need to sleep well.
Mats with Ledges
Cats that like using pillows could benefit from mats with ledges so that they have something to place their heads on when they sleep. The ledges also help define your furry friend’s space and keep it their own.
If you’re looking to spoil your cat with a place all their own, then a mini mansion might be for you! Sometimes, cats need their own version of an entire home to feel comfortable enough to fall asleep. If that’s the case, then a mini mansion might be your best solution.
The DIY Den
Sometimes, all a cat wants is a sturdy cardboard box that they can call home. Whether it’s from a recent package delivery or a cat’s dream house that took days to construct, DIY-ing could be the way to your cat’s heart.
