1. Luxury Cat Beds

When you want something really amazing for your cat, you may think of a luxury cat bed. Although it’s a little more expensive than other types of cat beds, they offer optimum comfort to your beloved cat. Luxury cat beds are made from different levels of materials that ensure that the cold from the ground cannot reach your cat. This cat bed is also spacious enough to let the cat unwind in whatever way s/he wants. Also if you have more than one cat, a luxury bed is your best bet.

This type of bed has another benefit, namely quilted areas to offer bloating to the bed. With this bloating, the bed becomes additionally relaxing. Cats tend to sleep in warm places (though it’s not guaranteed as they may sleep on bare floor too) and if your cat likes to sleep in your bed, a luxury bed will help the cat to have the same feel.

2. Cat Basket

A cat basket has dual purposes – one to offer convenience to your cat and the other to offer a decorative element to your home. The basket is added with comfortable cushions and warm shields and so, cats feel comfortable in it as a place to hide, a better option to shy cats.

Cat baskets are of two types:

  1. Wicker Baskets: These are traditional style baskets and are cheap. However, they are quite tough to wash and also can be chewed by your cat.
  2. Plastic Baskets: These are similar to wicker baskets in shape. These should be lined with soft cushions or blankets. Benefits of plastic baskets are they can be easily disinfected in the event of an epidemic and your cat cannot chew them.

3. Cat Hammocks (Radiator Beds)

You can get a hammock or radiator bed if you have a radiator in your home. Radiator beds are the best for the colder winter months. If your cat is often disturbing your sleep while searching for a warmer place, a bed above the radiator will provide her/him a warm and comfortable space to unwind, and s/he will no longer need to disturb you.

Cat hammocks are typically made of wool and are hung over radiators. Another advantage of them is cats love to have a look at the world going by, but they have the disadvantage that kittens or senior cats cannot jump up to a hammock easily.
