If you’re looking for an eco-friendly cat bed for your cat, here are five pawsome and attractive cat beds made from everything from recycled wine barrels to organic cotton cat beds.
Finicky felines often turn their noses up at fancy cat beds, but they sure do love sleeping in cardboard boxes. Have you ever considered that your cat may find the off-gassing smells of synthetic fabrics simply off-putting? It’s like the new car smell, only your cat is supposed to sleep in it. No wonder she prefers the box!
Years ago, I wrote a post on eco-friendly cat beds and was hard-pressed to find any specifically designed for cats. Thank goodness times have changed. Now, you can find a wide assortment of eco-friendly cat beds from country cozy to fancy stlyin’ in a mix of materials and sizes. Here are 5 eco-friendly cat beds that your feline friend will love.
1. Recycled Wine Barrel Cat Bed
Handmade from a retired wine barrel, this cozy casket is a perfect place for your cat to curl up and nap. It’s a one-of-a-kind find as each barrel is unique in size and color. The wine barrel pet bed also comes with a comfy cushion sized to fit the barrel. Find it and other wine barrel creations at WineyGuys.
2. Rescue Wool Felt Cat Bed Area Rug
When it comes to green cred, this cat bed area rug isn’t pulling the wool over anyone’s eyes. This 100% wool cat mat is made from wool that has been sourced from from animal rescue sanctuaries or family farms in the United States.
Because the wool comes from rescue sheep, it’s a unique melange of all types of wool including romney wool, merino wool, churro wool, wool locks, white wool, brown wool, black wool, grey wool, and organic wool. The great thing about wool is it helps keep pets cool in the summer and warm in the winter, plus it naturally has antibacterial properties.
While it doesn’t look like a typical cat mat, if you imagine you’re a cat, this is a dream bed. Find it at FeltBetter’s Etsy shop.
3. Organic Hemp Cat Bed
This natural and organic cat bed is made from 100% organic cotton and hemp. Not only is the removable cover eco-friendly, the padding is also natural. The bed is filled with natural fibres from kapok trees.
This organic hemp pet bed can be found on DebBedOrganics Etsy shop, where you can also find organic hemp and cotton pet duvets.
4. Organic Cotton Cat Mat
This organic cat mat is made from 100% organic cotton canvas, which provides a super soft surface for your cat to nap on. The bottom surface is made from eco-twill which is a blend of organic cotton and recycled polyester. You can choose this design or custom order a cat mat at Kentucky Bluebird’s Etsy store.
5. West Paw Design Eco Nap Cat Mat
The Eco Nap Cat mat is handcrafted in the USA by West Paw Design. It comes in a rainbow of colours and is made from IntelliLoft® both inside and out. This eco-friendly fiber is derived entirely from recycled plastic bottles. It’s comfy and easy to care for. Simply throw it in the wash. Visit Amazon to order your Eco Nap Cat mat
