Cats spend the greater part of their lives sleeping. The average feline snoozes for about 12 to 16 hours a day.
They love to curl up in warm, comfy areas, in the direct line of a sunbeam. They also seem to appreciate special beds and pods designed just for them.
Cats are now America’s most popular pets, according to figures supplied by the American Veterinary Medical Association. There are now more than 74 million house cats in the United States, outnumbering the nearly 70 million dogs.
Not surprisingly, a wide range of cat products have come onto the market. These include feline beds, pods and perches in a variety of styles. Below are a few of my favorites.
Cat Sleeping Pods
This cute, comfy and private leaf-pod cat bed is as functional as it is cute. It’s also a healthy choice. This pod is made from 100 percent natural wool, so it will provide a snug place for your kitty to nestle. It is also free of toxic chemicals and can be cleaned in the washing machine.
