Does your cat prefer to nap in private? If you have a hidey-cat, then you know the benefit of a cave bed. Cave cat beds give your kitty a dark, warm, quiet place to sleep. As a bonus, many cave beds are designed to fit in with your home decor. Whether your taste is modern and streamlined or funky and whimsical, there’s a cat cave to suit your home and your picky kitty.
These are our picks for the best cave cat beds for 2019.
Think of it as a convertible cave bed. Lined in soft fleece, with an internal heater to keep your kitty warm, this bed has a hood that zips on and off according to your cat’s preferences.
Helpful review: “My two large Oci boys love this bed! It doesn’t even have to be heated for them to snuggle in it. They will often prefer it to our big bed. It’s also really easy to wash and clean. I’m so glad we found it.”Buy Now on Chewy
Looking for a cat cave you can put your feet on? This “cat cube” is the one.
The large round entry makes it easy for your cat to hide away inside, and the thick bed is removable and machine washable. When you need more floor space, just fold it up and stow it in a closet.
Helpful review: “My cat was in it the second I put it together. He loves it. Looks nice enough to put in a living room without screaming ‘pet bed.'”Buy Now on Amazon
Groovy, baby! This mod-style cat cave bed zips together in the center. The roomy interior provides comfort and privacy to even the chunkiest cats. And it’s available in heated and unheated versions, depending on what your cat likes best.
Helpful review: “The pod arrived today. I unpacked, assembled (simple zip), and plugged it in. Our old girl, Delylah, got in immediately and began purring and making biscuits.”Buy Now on Amazon
Here’s another convertible cat bed for cats who swing several ways. The soft, fleecy lining is perfect for curling up in cave mode. But if your cat is feeling more social one day, then try it as a flat cat bed or plush pod so they can relax in view. Bonus: it’s machine washable, too.
Helpful review: “I LOVE it. It’s large, soft, and the perfect “cave” for both my cat, Audrey, and chi, Tommy. Tommy uses it during the day, Audrey uses it every night when Tommy is in his crate. They both love it. It’s a perfect gift for a cat or dog who loves to root under the sheets.”Buy Now on Amazon
Ooh la la! This 100% Merino wool hand-felted cat cave brings a touch of luxury to cat napping. The modern design suits all types of home decor. And your cat will love the warm, cozy wool.
Helpful review: “I can’t believe how much my cat loves this! I knew that he would like that it’s wool. I’ve never owned a cat who didn’t like natural fibers as bedding. My cat doesn’t take to new things and isn’t into gimmicks. He immediately started checking it out and, after coaxing him to go inside, he now goes in by himself and plays with it as if it is a toy. I’m buying another!”Buy Now on Amazon
I literally can’t handle the cuteness of this shark cat cave! And it’s not just adorable: the removable plush pillow and waterproof lining make it a practical choice for cats who love to burrow.
Helpful review: “The cats were all over these the minute I put them down…they’re having a great time with these, ambushing each other and dragging them around the room. I have two and each one has a sleeping cat in it at night.”Buy Now on Amazon
This tent bed with a removable pillow makes it easy for your cat to cozy up in private. The anti-skid base keeps it in place, and the whole thing can be tossed in the washing machine for cleaning.
Helpful review: “My cat enjoys this bed so much it’s borderline irritating. She really rubs it in my face by staring directly in my eyes while making a big show of rolling around and basking luxuriously inside of it. I’ve never seen her enjoy something so thoroughly before. My only complaint is that this doesn’t come in a larger size. All I have is my sad flat human bed.”Buy Now on Amazon
If your cat has been napping in the cupboard or hiding under the bed, try a cave cat bed! Your pet will have a safe spot to lay their head, and you’ll always know where to to find them.
