Our feline friends are notoriously fickle and unpredictable, and so your guess as to whether they’ll love these cat beds as much as we do is as good as ours. However, we do know that they’ll enhance your living quarters, which can’t be said of so much pet gear. Here are our five favourites from the current crop of cat beds.
You know a cat bed is good when you wish it was a bit larger so you could swap with with your own! That definitely applies to this Jolly Moggy bamboo cat pod by Rosewood, which combines a comfortable but confined (in the style of your cat’s favourite box!) space – with a hole in it so that your pet can pounce on whatever prey might be passing by. Crafted from bamboo and eco-fibre (which forms a scratching pad), it’s finished off with a catnip dangling toy.
Arctic Fox Hooded Cat Bed – £32.99, House of Paws
The perfect place to snuggle, this House of Paws arctic fox hooded cat bed will make your pet feel secure and warm. It has an interior fashioned from thick faux fur and an exterior formed from quality brown faux suede. With a removable inner cushion and a water-resistant non-slip base, it’s every bit as pratical as it is comfortable. The bed is 37cm high, wit a 35cm width and 37cm depth.
97cm Barrel Cat Tree – £60.99 (was £76.79), Pawhut
We’re not quite the right dimensions to try this one out so we can’t tell you if it’s as much fun as it looks, but cats certainly think so! The Pawhut 97cm Barrel Cat Tree is a particle board cylinder covered in plush cloth, designed to stand upright. It has four holes for your cat to play through, and, importantly sleep in (or on – the top has a soft deck especially for this purpose! An additional hanging toy will keep your cat entertained.
Grey Cat Pebble – £24.99, Danish Design
Very much in the ‘not ruining your interior decor’ category, this Danish Design grey cat pebble is almost unrecognisable as a cat bed, which has got to be a good thing. The pebble has a felt effect finish and is lined with luxurious soft faux fur. A generous 56cm wide, it’s 43 cm high (30cm deep) and so there’s plenty of place for your pet (or maybe even pets, depending on their size) to relax in this stylish bolt hole.
The ultimate in cat comfort, this animal print cat bed is the perfect place for your pet to relax in sumptuous style. From here, even the tiniest kitten can cast its imperial gaze across the living room and condescendingly regard its surroundings. Another fairly large bed, this machine-washable 51cm by 46cm bed can comfortable accommodate another cat and is also suitable for small dogs.
