Cats love to have cozy places to sleep. If you’ve recently added a cat to your family or are looking to buy your current furbaby a bed, we’ve got you covered! Our cat bed buying guide will help you choose a bed that’s perfect for your furry feline companion, regardless of how old or large they are. There’s a bed on this list for every cat! But before we get started, here are some parameters you should keep an eye on.
Material: What is the cat bed made of? Some are made with more pliable materials, such as wool, where there are some made of wood. Most are commonly made of cotton, or sometimes oxford cloth to keep them soft.
Enclosed: Enclosed cat beds have walls that come together at the top of the bed, making a little cave for your pets. Cats especially love enclosed spaces, as it makes them feel safe – perfect for nervous felines!
Machine Washable: Some of the beds on the list can be tossed into the washing machine when it’s time to clean them. Others, however, may be hand-wash only. You’ll have to keep an eye on the instructions to be sure.
Weight Range: People with bigger cats might be concerned that the bed won’t be big enough, or else won’t support the weight of the cat. That’s why we added a weight range – so you know how big your cat can be.
Size: The dimensions of the bed can also tell you how big your cat can be to still fit comfortably in the bed. It can also tell you where in the home the bed will best fit.
Warranty: A warranty works in your favor in case there are manufacturing errors with the cat bed. Within this time, if it malfunctions in some way, you can get a replacement. Some offer refunds if your cat doesn’t like it.
