Where to Put Cat Beds

Updated on June 3, 2015

Although the amount of time spent sleeping varies from cat to cat, and depends on age and personality, felines spend an average of 13 to 16 hours each day curled up in slumber. That is twice as much as humans do. It is also noted that kittens even sleep more! With this, we need to provide our kitties a place where she can have the most comfortable rest as possible. Luckily, cat beds are a great option for us.

"Want to see your cat fly? Get this cat feather toy now and see your cat soar!"

However, we cannot just put those cat beds anywhere and expect our cat to sleep in them immediately. We need to put these beds in the perfect place. Here are a few tips on where and how you can let your cat sleep in her new kitty bed.

Fave Napping Place

Observe your cat. Where is her favorite napping place? Is it on the sofa, or the windowsill or under the bed? Your cat might continue sleeping on that same spot even if there is a snuggly pet bed for her somewhere else. It might be best to put your cat bed on that specific place where she likes to nap. If she's hesitant to curl up in her new bed, try placing cat treats in it or spraying it with catnip to entice her over.

I Will Follow You

Observe your cat again. Do you notice that her favorite sleeping spot is wherever you are? If you are watching t.v. at the living room or sleeping on your bed, your cat is surely close by wandering in dreamland too. This is because cats are social creatures who like to be near you. Put the cat bed at the arm the sofa when you are watching t.v. or next to your bed when you are sleeping. This way, your cat can curl up comfortably next to you.

Peace and Quiet

Yes, your cat might want to sleep next to you while you are doing your stuff. However, if your house is busy and loud, your cat might want to find a quiet and secluded place to snooze off. Bedrooms are a good option to place that cat bed since, typically, bedrooms get less daytime than other areas on your home. Your home office or that quite place in the kitchen might be great options for placing that cat bed too.

Cat Furniture

Most cat owners purchase cat furniture for their pet along with cat beds. These furniture can be the perfect place to put those cat beds. Cat love napping on top of a cat condo or on the flat perches of a cat tree. Make your kitty's cat furniture even cozier with that cat bed addition.

High Up

Why you see cats sleeping on the arms of the sofa or even on top of the bookshelf is because cats loves to rest on elevated places where they can see the entire room from their perch. When choosing for a place to put those cat beds, try placing them in elevated places first, such as on top of furniture, rather than on the floor. Windowsills let cats survey your home and the back yard all while snuggled up in a cat bed. The back of the sofa is soft, comfortable, and high enough for your kitty to feel secure.
