Cat Beds - Christmas Gifts For Cats

Updated on September 6, 2011

Christmas will be here before you know it and it’s time to start thinking of what you can buy your favorite feline this year. While a cat can sleep anywhere, you might want to invest in a cat bed. They will not necessarily sleep in his cat bed when you want him to; however, it is a good idea to have one around for the times when your cat will want to have a soft and warm place to sleep that is his and his alone. If you have more than one cat you should get them one each.

My cat didn’t seem like the type to enjoy a cat bed as he liked sleeping next to me or in the bedroom alone. However, I picked up a cat bed from a friend and he went absolutely crazy over it. He spent weeks sleeping in it every evening. Of course, with the advent of summer he has avoided it since it is lined with fake lambs wool. I imagine when the cold weather hits again he will be sleeping in it once more.

There are as many cat beds on the market as there are cat’s personalities. If your cat likes to burrow, they have beds for that. If your cat likes to be toasty warm but still see what is going one, they have beds for that. If your cat likes to scratch, there are cat beds that have areas to scratch.
