Types of Cat Bed
When your cat loves to sleep on your lap, you know what an uncomfortable and stressful experience that can be, but when it comes to the types of cat bed, there are quite a few different choices. If you think of the cat hanging bed, you may think of a traditional cat bed where the cat licks one end of the sheet and sleeps on the other. This type of cat bed can get very tiring for the cat if it is constantly sleeping on one end of the sheet. A cardboard box with only one side cut out gives an ideal cat bed solution for an aging cat still in the playful stages and can easily be replace when it gets dirty, soiled and become unusable as your cat grows older.
Some cats like to sleep at night in cat bed for windows. These types of cat beds look very much like their regular cat bed, except that they have no holes in them and can be hung from the window with a piece of string or yarn. If you do not have any windows in your bedroom, this would be the best option, especially if you live in a very warm climate where your cat needs to stay warm.
Another type of bed would be radiator-type cat beds. These types of beds are very durable and sturdy metal frame beds, which give your cat a cool, luxurious feel at night. Some radiator beds even have built in heating systems to keep the cat warm during the colder times of the year. Because they are metal, radiator beds generally come in a plain color, but they can come in a variety of designs and styles.
Soft cat beds are usually made of a fluffy combination of cotton and polyester, making them extremely comfortable for your cat. They are relatively easy to clean and can take a beating from scratching and other cat behaviors. Because of their comfort, soft beds can be machine washed using some detergents, and they are available in several different styles and colors.
There is one very important consideration when choosing the right cat bed. Since high-quality fabric and other cat furniture are expensive, it is important that you get the highest quality for the money you spend. Most high-quality cat furniture is usually made out of wood or metal, although there are many choices for other materials on the market today. Cat beds come in several different sizes to fit most standard sized cats. When shopping for your cat's new bed, be sure that it is large enough for your pet, yet very comfortable and soft for your cat.
The last type of bed you will need to choose is the type of box spring or mattress you will place on top of the bed. Box springs come in a variety of styles, including ones that have suction cups and ones that do not. Cats enjoy sleeping on cat beds with suction cups, but since some cats may be allergic to the suction cups, you might want to look for a bed without suction cups. The last type of bed you will need is a mattress for your cat. Cats enjoy sleeping on high quality mattresses that are at least as high as their legs.
