Cat beds come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, and materials. Your kitty won't care about the color, so go ahead and choose a color that suits your taste and décor.
With all the styles on the market today, you should be able to find a comfortable one to match the décor of your home.
Factors to consider in choosing something to keep your cat healthy and happy:
Your cat needs a clean, quiet, and private place to sleep and rest. This place should be warm in the winter and cool in the summer. And even if your cat sleeps with you some of the time, she should still have a suitable place or two (at least) of her own. If you have a multi-level home, you may want to consider having a place for your cat on all levels.
Experiment by placing the cat furniture in different areas of your home. This will show you where your cat likes best. Or take your cat's lead by placing a bed or bedding in the locations he has already chosen as favorite spots.
If you travel with your feline friend, you can add to her feeling more comfortable and secure by taking along her bedding. If space is an issue, take along something like a cat mat or cushion.
Be sure that your kitty has used it in your home so it will have his or her familiar scent on it.
It's not unusual for you to bring home some wonderful new feline furniture and find that your kitty will have nothing to do with it. If this is the case, you need to try to make the new furniture as appealing to him or her as possible.
The following steps will help make your new cat bed more appealing to your feline companion:
Although there are a ton of cat beds you could buy, you don't really have to buy anything special to keep your cat healthy and happy. You can make one on your own.
This can be as simple as placing a clean, folded towel or small blanket on her favorite chair or even her favorite corner. A covered pillow will also do just fine.
Whatever type of bed you choose, be sure to regularly clean it. Many are machine washable. This is the best option. Be sure to dry the bed (or towel or blanket) thoroughly before setting it out for your kitty to use.
Keeping things clean helps keep your cat healthy by eliminating any potential health hazards, like fleas.
A flea-free environment is essential to keep your cat healthy and happy.
