For many people, cats are just like their children. Just as parents want to provide their kids with the very best, so too do pet owners want to give their fur babies the best of everything, including a warm, comfortable place to sleep. However, those looking to shop for the perfect cat bed have many things they need to first consider before making a final decision.

Important Considerations

Size

Does kitty need a small or a big pet bed? One of the most important factors in picking a bed is the size of the animal that will use it. Cats come in all shapes and sizes and are particular about their sleeping spots. Picking the wrong size bed can be a total waste of money; if they are not comfortable, pets will not sleep in it, no matter how much it might have cost.

 

The bed needs to be slightly larger than kitty so that she doesn't overflow. However, felines do enjoy smaller spaces. They feel more secure and comfortable when they can curl up in something small and compact as opposed to sleeping in a more open space. This is why many like to squish themselves into boxes even when there's plenty of free space around. Pet parents should measure their fur baby and then select a bed a couple of inches larger for optimal fit.

Cleanliness

Another factor to consider is how easy the bed is to clean. Pet parents shouldn't skimp out on washing their animal's bed because it's vital to the health and wellness of the pet. There are some adorable cat beds out there. Sometimes, though, the cuter beds can be incredibly hard to get free of dirt and grime. Choosing an easy-to-clean or machine-washable bed is the easiest way to go. However, for the pet owner that is set on having the cutest, most unique bed possible, weigh the cons of difficult cleaning against the pros of the cute appearance. This can help ensure that they're getting the right bed not only for their pet, but also for themselves.

Placement

Figuring out where the bed will be can also be a determining factor in the purchasing process. If it is going into a small space, buying a small pet bed might be advisable. If the animal enjoys lying in windowsills, then perhaps purchasing a window cat bed would be get more use. If the pet bed is going in a central and visible area of the home, owners might want it to match the rest of their décor as well. Fortunately, there are plenty of shapes, sizes, and designs of beds out there, so owners have plenty of options. It doesn't even have to be specifically for felines alone, either. Many manufacturers make dog & cat dual-purpose beds that can work for either animal. The possibilities are endless!

Outdoor vs Indoor Cat Beds

Finally, whether the pet is an indoor or outdoor animal will be another major consideration when purchasing a bed. There are certain types of plush beds that will be great for indoor kitties but might not hold up well outside, for example. (Note that many authorities like American Humane recommend that owners keep their feline companions indoors all year long).

Outdoor Cat Bed

No matter what type of bed is decided on, pet owners should make sure that their outdoor pet bed has two exits so that the animal will always have a way to escape in case a predator tries to corner him. For outside cats, the following are some of the best types to consider:

Wooden Cat Bed

One of the best materials for an outdoor cat house or bed is wood. Resting spots for felines made of wood can stand up to the weather as well. They are perfect for handling rain and blocking out the wind. There are plenty of wooden beds and houses for sale at various pet stores, retail stores, and online.

Plastic Pet Bed

Another choice for an outdoor cat bed is one made from plastic. Lightweight, hard, or any other kind of durable plastic will do. When purchasing a plastic house or bed, check to see if it is made out of recyclable materials. It does not make a difference in the quality of the house, but it will make a difference to the environment.

 

Getting a plastic cat house is also a great option as many come with insulation. With many of these types of houses, all of the sides—including the ceilings and floors—are insulated with high-quality material to keep furry occupants cool in the summer and warm in the winter. They are also great at keeping out rain. This means a pet parent can place a washable pillow or bed inside the house without having to worry about it getting soaked and ruined whenever it rains.

Wicker Cat Bed

Another possibility for outdoor cats is a simple bed made of wicker. Although pet parents will often see wicker cat basket beds being marketed for indoor kitties, they can also be used for outdoor kitties that like to roam and be free. All that needs to be done is to take a little extra care when positioning the bed. Pet owners should place the wicker basket in a safe and sheltered area, such as the corner of a porch or in a garage. This placement makes for a comfy and practical napping space for kitty.

Waterproof Fabric Bed

Although most fabric beds are not excellent choices for outside kitties, there are a few that do hold up just fine. These beds work because even though they are made of fabric, the material is waterproof.

 

Many of these also take into account how cold it can get at night. They have heated pads inside them so that kitty stays nice and cozy even on the coldest nights.

Indoor Cat Bed

When it comes to an indoor cat bed, pet owners have many more choices available. Cats that stay inside are already protected from the elements and rapidly fluctuating temperatures. This all means that choosing a bed for inside animals has less to do with safety and durability and more to do with style, personal preference, and maximizing comfort.

 

These are some of the most common types of cat beds for indoor cats:

Heated Cat Bed

Just because a furry friend lives inside does not mean that he does not also want to seek out a snuggly and warm hiding spot. There are certain regions that get very cold in the winter and, even inside, animals can become cold. When owners are at home, their feline companions can simply snuggle up to them for warmth. But when felines are home alone, they need something else to keep snug. A heated cat bed is the perfect solution.

 

According to VetInfo.com, giving kitty a self-warming pet bed improves both health and mood [1]. Why is that? Well, most people will notice that cats like to curl into fetal positions when they sleep. This allows them to retain their body heat. They may also prefer to curl against their humans or other cats for warmth. When those options aren't available, a heated spot can do the trick.

 

Heated beds can also work to relieve sore muscles, release tension, and help lessen the pains of arthritis, which makes them ideal for elderly or ailing cats [1]. They are also great for kittens who have freshly left the litter and now must find heat on their own. (Of course, beds specifically for kittens are available as well).

Hanging Cat Bed and Window Cat Bed

A hanging cat bed is a good choice for younger, more lithe felines. These beds require kitties to jump onto them and find their balance, so they aren't necessarily the best choice for older animals or those who suffer from arthritis or joint pain. However, for kittens or younger felines, hanging beds are lovely and cozy. There are several hanging varieties. There are ones made of cloth and wicker that are perfect for that country chic look. There are also hanging cat beds made of plastic that are very streamlined and modern. No matter what look someone is going for, they can find it!

 

A window cat bed is somewhat similar to a hanging variety, but they are attached to windows through suction cups and/or other means. These are ideal for a number of felines, including:

 

One word of caution about both hanging and window beds. Owners should make absolutely certain that they are secured properly and tightly. If a pet jumps into a hanging or window bed and it falls with him, it will frighten the pet dreadfully. He will likely never feel comfortable trying to use that bed again. There is also the chance of injury in a fall like that. Proper installation and consistent checks will help ensure that these resting spots are safe to use.

Cat Basket

Cat baskets are another variety for indoor kitties. The wicker basket mentioned above for outdoor pets also works well for indoor ones. However, open-top wicker baskets are not the only types of basket beds. There are baskets made of wool and felt that would make a very comfortable snoozing spot for any animal. There are also fleece-lined ones and those covered in faux fur, to name a few.

 

Those who enjoy this type's look but want something a little different might try an elevated wicker basket instead. It looks a little classier than one just sitting on the floor.

Cat Igloo and Cat Cave Bed

A cat igloo or a cat bed cave can be a great choice for kitties because these animals enjoy hiding and feeling secure. These types of beds are domed and give a pet the illusion of being able to hide. They also maximize cat cuteness; when cats stick their heads out of them, they look a bit like they're emerging from an egg. It makes for an adorable picture!

Modern Cat Bed, Luxury Cat Bed, and Other Options

Pet parents obviously want the most comfortable bed possible for their fur babies. Sometimes that comes at the expense of home décor. That doesn't have to be the case, though! There are many modern cat beds on the market today that are incredibly comfortable but don't look like a pet bed at all. Some great, fun options include:

Final Thoughts

While there are many factors to consider when choosing a new pet bed, pet parents should prioritize size, location, and cleanliness of the product. Carefully selecting the best pet bed will help ensure that kitty will love his new spot. Shop for one that is comfy and warm, and he is sure to repay this kindness with lots of love and snuggles.
