Is your cat seeking nap-time privacy? There are many reasons why cats choose dark, enclosed spots for their naps. These include warmth, reduced stress, and safety. This is why your kitty’s favourite cat bed may be a cardboard box with high sides—or a semi-enclosed cave cat bed.
Lucky for you and kitty, the contemporary cave-style beds come in a wide range of styles and materials. Whether your taste is modern and streamlined or classic and cosy, there’s a cave cat bed to suit your home and your fussy cat.
Be sure to get one that’s the right size for your cat. Larger or older cats tend to prefer something roomier where they can stretch out a bit while kittens and young cats like to curl up tight.
