    Cat supplies such as a cat bed are quite important, considering how much time a cat spends asleep. Cat beds are a must to add to your cat accessories. There are a number of different types of cat bed, each with their own merits. See the following guide to cat beds for more information.

    •    Find a space in your house where the cat bed will sit. You should allow for an extra foot to the size of the space that your cat takes up when asleep.

    •    These cat supplies can come in various different materials. It is important that you get one that is comfortable for your cat to sleep in. Fleece is one of the most popular choices, as it is cosy, comfortable and keeps the cat warm.

    •    Cat beds will be filled with different materials too. Some have foam inside them; others have cedar filling which deter insects.

    •    A rounded cat bed with a poly-fill lining is great for a cat to mould into and keep very comfortable.

    •    It is always beneficial when cat accessories are easy to wash. Many cat beds come with removable covers that can be washed with no fuss.

    •    If you are worried about your cat being cold, you could invest in a cat bed that has a heating element in it. This regulates the temperature for you and keeps the cat warm in the winter months.

    •    Some cat beds have frames. They are normally wooden or steel and will provide more stability and structure for the cat’s bed. They include soft linings and fleece for good comfort.
