Devoted cat lovers would like to provide whatever their lovely cat requires. This certainly includes the cat’s bed. But many cat owners don’t have any clue as what bed to buy, where to buy etc. here are few guidelines that will make you to put your hands on the best cat bed.
The comfort of the cat will be the top priority. The cat must sleep comfortably in the bed and should be well rested. The size of the bed is directly proportional to the comfort of the cat. The bed should permit the stretching of the cat as well as the adjustment of position of the cat. The texture of the bed is also important factor in selecting the cat’s bed. The bed should not be too firm or too soft.
The material is nothing but the fabric of the bed. The fabric may be natural material or the synthetic one. The most common natural fabric is cotton. Natural materials are more preferred because of less allergic problems. The synthetic materials are good as they are more durable.
The bed that needs to be purchased should be selected based on the place where it is going to be placed. The space availability should be assessed before buying the bed. If you are thinking of buying big bed then you should have sufficient space in your house for the same, else it will not be useful.
The cat beds are in general made with one entrance and wall at sides. The entrance is for the cat to go in and the walls will prevent the cat from falling sideways. The colour of the cat bed can be the cat owner’s choice, because the cats don’t mind any colour. The cat’s bed should complement the room and should not be the odd one out in the room.
The cat’s bed is available in different varieties. Some are easily washable and the other is impossible to wash. We should always go for washable cat bed. The material used in the bed should dry faster. Only then we can keep the bed clean and dry so that the cats don’t get in to any health issues because of allergens or microbes.
Some cat bed has covers that can be detached for washing and cleaning. We should buy the cat bed that has thin detachable facility. We should avoid the ones that have permanently attached bed covers. The bed cover material should preferably be natural material and should be easily washable and should dry faster. .
Water resistant cat beds are very ideal for travelling along with the cats. These beds will not absorb the urine hence are very handy while the cat owners is on travel with his lovely pet cat.
Durability, of course is certainly major factor in selecting the cat bed. No one likes to invest their money in one that doesn’t last long. The cats are very playful. They will run amuck in the bed or may even bite the bed. Hence the bed should be sturdy and should survive such attempts to damage. One should also look at the band and warranty before buying one..
