Cat Comfort In Their Beds
Your cat will want to have a comfortable and safe place to sleep as its the thing they spend most of their day doing. If you have ever had a cat then you will know they are all different in their sleeping habits.
Some will enjoy a very warm area by the radiator but others may find this a little too warm and opt for a cooler environment. Your cat will know when they are too hot or cold but still make sure you check where they are sleeping to ensure it is not too hot or cold.
When it comes to choosing cat beds this site goes into some nice detail but here are a few things you need to look. Consider the size of your cat compared to the bed – is it nice for rolling up but also having a good stretch when needed. What material is it? Will your cat like the material? Some cats don’t like certain materials, our cat does not like the fluffy stuff for instance.
Another option is where does your cat like to sleep? Do they prefer to be up high or down on the ground? Do they have a favourite chair they look to check out their domain from? Our cat absolutely loved a cardboard box to sleep in, which was easy and cheap to replace occasionally. Perhaps they like being on the bed?
Getting the right bed for your cat is all about watching and knowing your cats habits and choosing something that will take what it likes and make it better for them. Cats are funny independent creatures so don’t be surprised they won’t like their new bed to start with. Give them time to get used to their new bed before abandoning it completely, you will probably find that over time they will begin to use it.
