Luxury cat beds to pamper your special kitty!
We all love the luxury of a nice cosy bed, and the same goes for our pets. Giving your cat her own special bed is a wonderful gift. These can also make a nice gift for a cat loving friend or family member. The following luxury cat beds are recommended by me based on personal opinion. Cats can be finicky, and only do what they want. Buying a cat bed doesn’t necessarily mean your kitty will make it her permanent sleeping place!

This luxury cat bed is perfect for an older kitty suffering from joint pain. Arthritis is fairly common in senior cats and this bed has a layer of self warming material. A non slip bottom is great as your kitty won’t slide all over the place climbing in and out. Fluffy, polyester fiber filling makes it extra cosy, and raised sides gives kitty a sense of security.
