5 Types of Cat Beds You Should Know About

Posted by

On average, healthy adult cats sleep for 15-18 hours a day. And growing kittens need even more sleep- about 20 hours per day! With all the time your cat spends sleeping, it's important to make sure she has a comfortable bed. And, today, you can buy cat beds that are fun and functional!

Here are 5 types of cat beds you should know about.

1. Cat Scratcher Beds

If your cat loves scratching posts, she'll love a cat scratcher bed! This type of bed is made from sturdy corrugated cardboard. Your kitty can jump in, have a little scratching session, and then take a cat nap.

This Necoichi Cat-Headed Scratcher Bed received 4.5 of 5 stars from Amazon reviewers. It's made with non-toxic, cornstarch-based glue. And you can buy it on Amazon.com.

2. Window Cat Beds

Clever manufacturers have designed a cat bed that attaches to your window with suction cups! Your fur baby can sunbathe, take a nap, or just hang out and watch the world go by. This particular cat bed comes with a removable Kitty Pad for your cat's comfort. If it gets dirty, you can just throw it in the washing machine.

You can check out this K&H Pet Products EZ Mount Window Bubble Pod on Amazon.com! One cat mama who reviewed it said, "All three of my fur-kids enjoy sleeping in it. They like it so much, I'm considering getting another one. Highly recommended."

3. Pod Cat Beds

Just like a tent for kitties, a pod cat bed gives your cat a dark, private spot to sleep. Cats love curling up in these cozy beds- especially the ones made of natural fibres. 

This cat bed is made in Nepal from 100% merino wool. One happy customer wrote, "Our cat LOVES her new cave. It took her a few hours to go into it but once she went in she immediately got comfortable. She sleeps in it for hours. This is a high quality thick wool felt product with an organic handmade look, it's very sturdy and will last forever." You can check out this Meowfia Premium Felt Cat Bed Cave on Amazon.com!

4. Hanging Cat Beds

Some of the most unique cat beds are hanging cat beds. They allow your cat to have a comfortable perch and an elevated sleeping spot. 

This gorgeous Cat-A-Comb is handmade in Romania from birch plywood and rope. Designed to be placed on the floor or hung from the ceiling, it includes a furry pillow. You can buy it on Etsy.

5. Kitty Condo Cat Beds

A kitty condo is especially nice for shy cats. It gives them a quiet spot to retreat if you have a lot of activity or guests. Kitty condos often have a bed inside and a resting place on top. Your kitty may even like to play hide and seek in it!

This Kitty City Large Cat Bed is available on Amazon.com.
