Cat Caves

Cat Caves – The Modern Day Cat Bed Plus Much More

OK. So we are officially excited! It seems to us that there are a lot of cat caves around at the moment and we LOVE them! And so do lots of cat parents around the globe. Given there are so many similar cat caves around we thought we’d create a run down of the different companies, styles and pricing available. We hope this will help you to shortlist the cat caves that are just right for your cat, cats or even your litter of kittens (we know, how gorgeous would it be seeing a litter of kittens tucked up in one of these cat caves??

What is a Cat Cave?

A cat cave is a small cat bed that your cat can climb into. They are known by a whole bunch of other adorable names including cat pod, cat snug, cat igloo (one of our favorites), nap cocoon, cat hideaway, cat bed or cat house.

The Benefits of Cat Caves Made with Merino Wool

The latest wave of cat caves are made with merino wool. Every cat cave in the table below is made with merino wool. Why is that the case? There are lots of great things about merino wool including:

  • It’s lightweight so you will be able to move your cat pods around that house
  • Cats LOVE this all natural material. It’s not itchy
  • It’s naturally insulating which means it’s cool in summer and warm in winter
  • Merino wool is naturally antibacterial
  • Merino wool is easy to clean (albeit you need to wash by hand)
  • Can cuddle inside or be used as a padded mat
  • Merino wool doesn’t hold odors
  • No chemicals

A few CatPadz Cat Cave Hints and Tips

  • Most of these cat caves don’t come with a padded base. However its easy enough to throw your cat’s favorite cushions or blankets into the cat cave
  • Some people find that these cat caves are prone to “collapse” a little. Make sure you check out reviews for the exact brand and size before purchasing. In most cases reviewers comment that they are able to “reform” the cat pod by hand once they have washed the cat cave
  • For best results you will need to hand wash this type of cat pod. We know. That’s boring. So why are we suggesting it? A washing machine spin cycle may cause your cat cave to loose its shape more quickly.  Gently hand wash, rinse, reshape by hand and drip dry. This approach will ensure that the cat pod lasts a lot longer

So there you have it. Our run down of some of the best cat caves around. Adorable, eco friendly and a hit with so many cats around the world. What’s not to love?
