    Hi,

    We have a cave bed for our little cutie, but he won't get in it. He sits on top of it and squashes it down! But we want him to be warm. :D

    Can anyone recommend a high sided bed that he would jump into, like the leopard cosy bed so that his body would be surrounded for warmth?

    Thanks,

    Bobbee

    :rolleyes: typical cat behaviour they never use their beds how you intended them too. Jaffe doesn't like sleeping in anything with high sides as he likes to sprawl so we got a cat sofa which he wouldn't sleep in at first so we half covered it with a box and put it next to the radiator so that he can sprawl, have some cover and keep warm. He now sleeps in it every night :D

    I would say I would watch where and how he sleeps and buy a bed that he is most likely to use and modernise it to how he likes it.

    My girls love a radiator bed - preferably when the radiator is on but not too fussed :D - or the hammock bed on the cat tree. I have an open basket where they sleep in the kitchen and an enclosed one upstairs but the do prefer to be in the open - unless they're under my duvet of course :p
    I think all cats are different in the places they prefer to sleep - just go with what works best for you and your cat. I'm sure he would soon move if he wasn't cosy enough :)

    Hi,

    Thanks all for your replies.

    Much appreciated.

    Coco is real curl up in a ball snuggle cat :)

    I think I like something like Ella suggested.

    I bought Cookie a radiator bed - she doesn't use it
    I bought Cookie an igloo - she doesn't use it
    I bought Cookie a nice high sided Danish design bed - yep you guessed it, she doesn't use it :D
