Best Orthopedic Cat Bed: My Pick

Updated on December 28, 2014

K&H Memory Sleeper Pet Bed: Purrfect for Old Cats

Why should humans get nicer beds than cats? No wonder we sleep on your pillow.

This is MY bed. It's a memory foam bed, a snuggly cat bed for older kitties like me. It's not heated, but the memory foam and plush-topped washable cover keep me warm. I sleep on it every day.

I inherited my orthopedic cat bed from another elderly cat, Galena, who spent the last 3 years of her 23-year life snoozed out on this bed. So I can truly say this bed is cat tested, kitty approved!

Samhain Reviews the K&H Memory Sleeper Pet Bed - Voicing her opinion, as usual (Notice the "Paw")

This bed comes in different sizes for dogs (bleh). The small size is perfect for cats. I like the "mocha" cover, but it also comes in sage.

The cover is removable and washable, with a plushlike top that's really soft and velvety after many washings, yet dirt doesn't stick to it (I keep trying to bring the garden in with me, but it brushes off). The "bump" style memory foam is firm and strong, so you don't have to worry about tearing it when taking the cover off.

Put it next to a window or sliding glass door so we can see out.

A word to the wise: if you remove the cover to wash it, I WILL make do with (a) your office chair or (b) the best chair in your living room until my bed is back in working order.

Mind you, there's organic catnip growing outside my house, and I like it, too. But for dried catnip, this is the best. Some years ago, a friend gave me a cat toy filled with it: "zoom around the room catnip." That became my favorite toy.

My feeder-person noticed it had finally worn out this year. She spoils me. She bought this package of loose leaf catnip, unstitched my toys, recharged them with fresh "zoom," and sewed them back up. Now I'm pouncing and chasing them again.

She also discovered that sprinkling a pinch of this dried organic catnip on my bed makes me happy. It was already my favorite sleep spot, but now, before I settle in, I have to snuggle and roll around first. Even 15-year-old senior cats need their exercise!

Galena lived in Utah, which has snow, yet she insisted on keeping her K&H Sleeper bed right next to the cold glass patio door so she could see out. So her feeder-person got her one of these mats and put it on top of the bed. You could buy the mat by itself. You can also buy the heating pad all by itself and wrap it in a flannel blanket or towel for a cheap heated cat bed.

The reason to use a special heated cat pad is that it regulates its temperature carefully so that it's safe for a cat to sleep on. It stays on, too. A human heating pad is too hot to be safe for a cat, and most shut off after half an hour. After Galena passed away, I sent her thermo mat to a friend's elderly kitty in Boston who needed it more than my California kitty.

 

Tip: Cat Bed on Desk / in Window Keeps Cat off Keyboard!

A blanket, a desk (eco-friendly bamboo!), and a window seat view make good accessories for this orthopedic cat bed.

The End - ZzzzzzzzzPrrrrrrrrrZzzzzzzPrrrrrrrr

    What is that wonderful hinged gate in the background? Does it contain cat/dog? Is it short or tall?
