Best Cat Beds - New and Unique Cat Beds

Updated on February 2, 2015

Cat Beds - From Simple to Luxurious

Your cat deserves a soft comfortable place to take a nap. Let's face it, they spend most of the day sleeping, so it will get lots of use. As a cat owner you know that if you don't provide kitty with a bed, he'll choose yours, or your new sofa. Not only that, he'll leave you plenty of fur on your furniture too.

So you might as well get your friendly feline a cat bed, and encourage him to use it instead of your own furniture. Cat beds and cat furniture can range anywhere from a simple hand sewn pillow bed, to a royal cat canopy bed, or even a fancy cat bunk bed. There is plenty of choice out there even for the most discerning owner.

What to Consider Before Buying a Cat Bed

There are some important factors to consider before buying a cat bed, or cat furniture in general. Take a look at this list before you buy a cat bed.

  • Will it fit in your house?
  • Will be it comfortable for your cat?
  • Will it be large enough for your cat now, and when fully grown?
  • Is it washable, or easy to clean?
  • Is it a hard wearing material?
  • Does your cat curl up to sleep, or stretch out? Consider this for the size and shape.
  • Will your cat feel safe and secure in it?
  • Will the style of the bed look nice in your house?

Luxury Cat Beds

For the discerning owner, who truly treats their cat like a member of the family, their cat needs cat furniture, not just any cat bed. These luxurious cat beds add style and show off your beloved pet. Kitty can stretch out in style in these beds.

For the pampered cat, or for multiple cats, there is the cat bunk bed. Each cat can have their own spot, or if you just have one cat, he/she can choose between the lower bunk, or the upper bunk with a view of what's going on in the house.

Cozy Cat Caves

Some cats like a quiet secluded place to nap, where they feel secure and comfortable. These cave like cat beds will be perfect. Maybe you have a family with young children and want your kitty to have a place that's just for them, where little hands will be less likely to bother them. Or maybe you have a cat that loves to sneak under your covers or blanket to sleep, so rather than trying to constantly get cat hair out of blanket or sheet, you can provide him with his own covered play to nap.

Heated Cat Beds

There are several reasons that you might want to give your cat a heated cat bed. Your house may have uneven heating or drafts and you would like to offer kitty a cozy warm area to sleep. You might also have an older or arthritic cat that could actually gain some physical benefits from a heated sleeping environment. Cats often seek a warm spot in the sun to take a nap, so why not provide your cat with a heated cat bed.

Turn a Sweater into a Pet Bed

If you would rather save some money and do it yourself, you can turn an old sweater into a cat bed if you have some sewing skills. Take a colorful old sweater or old throw blanket, fill it with some soft filling, sew it up and voila, a comfy yet affordable cat bed.

Cat Perch

If your cat is too good to be lying on the ground, or maybe he wants to get away from the dog, he might prefer to be on a "perch". Cats have a natural desire and ability to climb, so cat perches not only provide cats with more vertical space to roam, but they also provide a sense of security. Cat perches also provide more ways of getting them exercise.

SmartCat Multi-Level Cat Climber

When just one perch won't do, this multi-level climber let's your cat choose how high he wants to sleep or perch. It provides exercise, gives a sense of security and also allows multiple cats to be perched at once. Great way to add a scratching post and climber all in one for small spaces.

These are very sturdy, carpet covered perches that are easy to install. The cat perches are large enough to a good landing spot when jumping onto them, and even large enough for a nap for most cats. The perches allow your cat a higher vantage point to view what's going on, or also as a stepping stone on to higher places in your house.

      I knitted a couple of Kitty Pi things and they like to lay on them occasionally. They even like to get underneath and trundle around the room like the horta from Star Trek ("No kill I!") but they sleep with/on me at night.
