Welcome to our cozy Cat Cave Bed Page!

Since we are highly devoted to our deeply loved pets, naturally we focus on optimally meeting their needs. Cats are known for being expert sleepers. On average, cats sleep for about 12 to 16 hours a day. Some cats, especially kittens and older cats, may sleep even more, sometimes up to 20 hours a day. Cats are crepuscular animals, which means they are most active during dawn and dusk, so they tend to sleep a lot during the daytime and nighttime. This behavior is normal and is related to their natural hunting instincts and energy conservation.

In constant search of the perfect hide-a-way, they will find a secure, comfortable space in the most unexpected of places to rest.  A box, a bag, a shoe, a suitcase – if they can burrow in, a cat will create the perfect retreat and, only on their terms, emerge for a snuggle. 

Because cats sleep a lot, it’s up to you to give them a comfortable, cozy place to sleep. When that’s the goal, you can’t do much better than a felted wool cat cave bed from Clearly Loved Pets.

What are the benefits of our Cat Cave Beds?

Comfort: Felt cat beds can be comfortable and cozy, providing a soft and warm place for your cat to rest. Cats often enjoy the soft texture of felt.

Cozy and Secure Space: Cats are known for their love of cozy, enclosed spaces. A cat cave bed provides a secure and den-like environment that can help them feel safe and comfortable. It mimics the feeling of being in a small, enclosed space, which many cats find reassuring.

Privacy and Solitude: Cats are often solitary animals, and they may appreciate having a private space where they can retreat to when they want some alone time. A cave bed can give them a place to relax and recharge away from household activities.

Warmth and Insulation: Cave beds are often designed to be well-insulated and can help your cat stay warm during colder months. The enclosed design can trap your cat's body heat, providing a cozy and warm spot to curl up in.

Durability: Felt is a relatively durable material, but it may not be as resistant to scratching and kneading as other materials like fleece or faux fur. If your kitty loves to knead and scratch, you may have to replace your cat cave in time.

Stress Reduction: Some cats may feel stressed or anxious in open or noisy environments. A cave bed can offer a sense of security and reduce their stress levels. It can be particularly helpful for shy or nervous cats.

Camouflaged Hideaway: Cats are natural predators, and they often like to observe their surroundings from a concealed vantage point. A cave bed can serve as a camouflaged hideaway where your cat can watch the world around them without feeling exposed.

Preventing Drafts: If your cat enjoys sitting in a particular spot, a cave bed can serve as a draft barrier, protecting them from cold air and drafts that may come through windows or doors.

Hair and Allergen Control: Some cave beds are made from materials that can help contain and control the shedding of cat hair, making it easier to keep your home clean. They can also reduce the spread of allergens, which can be beneficial for cat owners with allergies.

Versatile Design: Consider the size and design of the felt cat bed. Cats prefer different shapes and sizes, so choose one that matches your cat's preferences. Some cats may prefer open, flat beds, while others like enclosed options. Our colorful cat caves come in many different patterns and colors so once you decide what shape is best for your cat, then the color choice is yours and you can match your home decor! 

Maintenance: Felt cat beds are easy to clean.

So… do cats like felt cat cave beds?

The answer is yes!  Of course, they do!  They love them! We can’t reasonably speak for all cats, but generally, felines enjoy the warmth and coziness of felt beds because the material is soft and comfortable. Felt can also provide insulation and a sense of security for cats. In addition, wool, which is used to make felt, contains a natural oil called lanolin.  Cats are known to enjoy this scent and research suggests that it reminds them of their mothers. We are not, however, certain about how this research was conducted. ☺

While we find that many cats love felt cat caves, we want to take the opportunity to point out that every cat is unique, and their preferences for beds and resting places can vary. To increase the likelihood that your cat will enjoy and use the bed, you can place it in a location where your cat likes to hang out.  Move your cave to different locations to see where your cat prefers. Some popular spots where cats like to sleep include:

1. Sunspots: Cats are often drawn to warm and sunny spots, like patches of sunlight streaming through a window. They enjoy basking in the warmth. Position your cat cave in a warm stream of light during winter months.

2. Cozy blankets and bedding: Many cats appreciate soft and comfortable bedding, whether it's a plush cat bed, a cozy blanket, or a pile of clean laundry. You can try tucking a blankie or your favorite old shirt into the cave.

3. Quiet and secluded spots: Cats sometimes prefer quiet and hidden spots where they can rest undisturbed, like under the bed or in a closet.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Colorful Cat Caves

How do I care for my cat's cave bed? 

Caring for your cat's cave bed is essential to ensure it remains a comfortable and clean resting place for your feline friend. Here are some tips on how to care for a cat's cave bed:

1. Regularly Shake Out and Vacuum: To remove loose fur, dirt, and debris, take the cave bed outside and give it a good shake. You can also use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to thoroughly clean the interior and exterior of the bed. 

2. Spot Clean: If your cat has an accident or if you notice a specific area that needs cleaning, spot clean it immediately. Use a mild, pet-safe detergent or a mixture of water and a small amount of vinegar. Gently scrub the soiled area, then rinse and pat it dry. Ensure that it is completely dry before allowing your cat to use it again.

3. Brush the Bed: Use a lint roller or a pet hair brush to remove any remaining cat hair from the bed. Regular maintenance will help keep the bed looking clean and reduce allergens in your home.

4. For a deep cleaning, hand wash the bed in lukewarm water with a mild, unscented, dye-free detergent, or a wool detergent. Organic liquid unscented castile soap is a good choice for cleaning your felt bed. Press out the extra water, gently reshape your bed as needed, and allow to air dry.

By regularly cleaning and maintaining your cat's cave bed, you'll provide a clean and cozy place for your feline companion to rest and play.
