Best Cat Beds 2019
So, it's got to the point where you've had enough of your cat sleeping on your fresh white sheets. They leave specks of dirt, hair, and unidentified objects which have been brought in from outside.
You need a Cat Bed; However it's difficult to know which one to choose. What will they like? Will they use it? Cats are notoriously fussy when it comes to sleeping arrangements, so we've helped you decipher the best cat beds 2019.
Best Place For A Cat Bed
There's a few tips on placing your Cat Bed in the perfect spot for your purrer. Firstly, notice their sleeping spots. Do they normally sleep in the lounge where there's lots of people? Or do they choose your bed to snuggle into during the day?
Secondly, do they tend to sleep in a room full of people where they lap up the company and attention? Perhaps they choose a room far away from the rest of the fuss where they can quietly slumber.
It's also good to notice the height that your cat tends to sleep. A lot of kitties don't mind sleeping somewhere close to the floor. However, most cats prefer to sleep somewhere that is slightly elevated, due to their natural instincts. Or they'll hide away underneath your bed or a pile of laundry. This is a huge indicator for which type of cat bed they require.
How To Get My Cat To Sleep In Their Cat Bed
As all cat owners know, cats are naturally suspicious creatures. If you've bought a beautiful bed for your kitty and you just can't get them to kip in it, then perhaps there's something they're not quite happy with.
Firstly, try putting a worn t-shirt inside the Cat Bed to familiarise the smell with your kitty. Cats love the smell of their owner, so this will instantly create a connection with your furry friend. It also reassures them that their cat bed is a safe and secure place for them to sleep- Just like your bed. Your new cat bed might hold an unfamiliar smell that is off-putting to them, so this is a great trick.
Keep the bed in a semi-social area so that they have company but are also not constantly disturbed. This means that they can creep after some attention if they want to, but if not, they can sleep in peace. Notice the sleeping habits of your cat, too. Do they tend to sleep on certain pieces of furniture? You can try placing the Cat Bed over where they usually sleep, to try and persuade them.

This blog post helps you decide on which style of Cat Bed to go for. It's not only a choice for you to make as your cat is truly the one who decides. Pick a style that you feel matches their normal sleeping spaces. We've grouped together some of the best cat beds from brands such as Danish Design and Ancol that your kitty will love.
Best Cat Beds For Older Cats
Ancol Cove Cat Bed
If you've got an older or senior cat which is in need of a cat bed, it's quite a task to decide on which one would best suit them. Older cats tend to quickly plop themselves down. This means that they require a cat bed with sufficient cushioning so that they don't hurt themselves. Plus, an extra padded bed eliminates those pressure points, making it a lot more comfortable for your furry friend.
The Ancol Cove Cat Bed is the perfect bed for an older kitty. It features a low entry point which is perfect for those who can't move around as much anymore. Older cats can develop problems with their joints, making getting up and down a lot more difficult, so this feature is purr-fect for them.
As well as this, this Cat Bed has extra high sides for support whilst your kitty is lounging. So if they roll over to the side whilst they're sleeping, they can't fall out of bed. The Ancol Cove Cat Bed is also luxuriously padded which adds to that extra bit of joint comfort.
