Like most sane animals, cats love sleep. In fact, they sleep, on average, something like 16 to 20 hours a day. And if you've ever owned a cat, you know that they're not necessarily picky about where they sleep — it can be anywhere and everywhere, in a position that cannot possibly be comfortable. That's why, when you're looking at the best cat beds, it's important to find a bed your cat will actually use.
Finding the best bed for your cat means considering a few things: Does your cat love cuddling for warmth? Does your cat prefer a bed that blocks them from sight? Does your cat prefer to be elevated and off the floor? Before purchasing the perfect cat bed for your feline friend, take a moment to consider their favorite sleeping spots and how these cat beds compare.
