How to Choose a Cat Bed

Your cat is a creature of habit and comfort. So, it is important to get him or her a nice comfy bed to spend their leisurely days. There are many choices for cat beds to choose from. Today, we want to share a few tips on what you should consider when you want to buy a bed for your cat.

1. Measure your cat

Before you go out to buy your cat a bed, measure him. Measure the length of his body and a few inches to both sides. Also, weigh your cat if possible. The bed you buy has to be sturdy enough to carry the weight of your cat. It must also be big enough so he can stretch and sleep in all those cat-like weird positions.

2. Consider your budget

Your budget will be a big factor in the type of bed you buy. There will be many options and you will have to know what you can spend on the bed. You don’t need to buy the most expensive bed. It must just be comfortable and big enough.

3. Decide on a fabric

Cat beds are made of many different materials. Some are natural and some are synthetic. Be careful of your choice of fabric as some of them may give your cat allergic reactions and cat ear mites. Choose something that is soft and won’t irritate their skin. You know your cat better than anyone else. Keep in mind the types of fabrics they sleep on around the house. They will probably enjoy anything that is similar.

4. Consider the location

Where you will put the bed will also have an effect on your choice. The space available will determine the size and shape that you can buy. A sunny spot is usually a good choice. Cats like the sun and warmth.

Consider all these factors when you decide to buy a cat bed. Remember your cat loves the good life and luxury, so keep that in mind.
