Cat Baskets & Beds
Cat beds – Cosy comfort for felines
Just like humans, cats love being cosy when they sleep. Cat beds allow you to create comfortable areas for cats to rest, doze and relax. At bitiba, you will have no difficulty finding a bed for your cat that goes well with your style of furnishing. If you have two cats, it's worthwhile buying each cat its own bed.
Cat beds as a cosy retreat and sleeping spot
With cat beds, felines have a retreat and sleeping spot entirely to themselves. This reduces conflict between humans and animals, such as when it comes to your own favourite spot on the sofa. There are models in many different colours, sizes and shapes. Our online shop offers an outstanding choice of cat beds to order. The bitiba assortment ranges from cushioned cuddly beds to felt baskets and cosy willow pet sofas.
Do you actually need a cat bed?
Strictly speaking, a cat bed isn't a necessity. It's a small, well-earned luxury that you can treat your beloved pet to. You benefit too, as cat hair that would otherwise end up on the sofa or in your own bed accumulates in the cat bed instead. When your cat scratches, it's also helpful if only its own bed is affected rather than an expensive couch or smart leather chair.
What should a cat bed be like?
If you want to offer your cat extra cosiness, choose a model with a fluffy surface. Cat beds with a raised edge offer good protection from draughts. Many cats also love snuggling up from the inside, therefore cat dens are very popular too. From a hygiene perspective, a low-maintenance cover is beneficial. There are several beds with machine-washable covers. Cat beds with anti-slip nubs also work well on smooth flooring.
What size is good for a cat bed?
Many cats love stretching out properly. This should be accommodated in cat beds too so there is no lack of comfort. Measure your cat from the tip of its nose to the base of its tail and add twice the length of its legs. On a reclining surface of this size, your cat can make itself comfortable in any position. However, there are also cats that prefer to curl up, so they may also have a slightly smaller model, in which they can lie as if in a hollow. Hence, some cat beds are also adjustable in size, i.e. with a drawstring at the edge in order to be able to accommodate different types to the same extent.
How should cat beds be set up?
Connecting rooms, corridors and utility rooms aren't suitable places for cat beds. Instead, choose a cosy spot in a room where you yourself like to spend a lot of time. The lounge is a perfect choice in many cases. If you work from home, it could also be the office. Always avoid draughty areas in the immediate vicinity of doors. If you have a scratching tree for your cat, you can place the bed right next to it. Cat beds with a Velcro base can even be placed right inside a scratching tree.
