SOCIABLE INDIVIDUALS. CHECK WHY CATS NEED THEIR OWN LOCATION
Although cat keepers often watch their pupils fall asleep in various, often surprising places, it does not mean that animals do not need their own bedding. Choosing the right bed for a cat may seem difficult – you should choose a model that will provide it with privacy, but will not completely isolate him from the environment, will give it a sense of security and comfort. Find out why bedding is so important for your pet!
Cats visit our homes more and more often
Although statistically Poles choose dogs more often as their household members, cats are in the second place in the ranking. It is estimated that there are over 6.8 million of them in the country, which means that 33% of all animal owners in Poland are „cat lovers”, according to the 2020 survey conducted by FEDIAF. As a manufacturer of pet accessories, we are constantly observing an increase in interest in products intended for cats. The owners approach their pets more and more consciously, broaden their knowledge, carefully select food and layette elements. They are happy to choose ecological cat beds made of recycled materials. Mainly to care for the natural environment as well as for the comfort of your animals.
A cat’s need to have its own territory
Can a cat that does not have its own lair get enough sleep? Not always. Lack of a bedding, which is only a cat’s property, can adversely affect the animal’s self-confidence and sense of security, and thus – the quality of sleep. What it comes from?
- Cats need a specific territory, where they will designate specific zones – for example, playing, eating, taking care of physiological needs and resting; bedding helps to separate sleeping space.
- A cozy and comfortable bed for your cat will provide him with comfort and allow him to assume any position.
- Properly positioned bed will allow the cat to observe the surroundings with the feeling that nothing is threatening him – it helps to relax.
- A frequently used bed is soaked with a cat’s smell – in the event of a move it will be a familiar element in a new area, and its presence will reduce stress.
Rest in solitude
Although cats are not herd animals, they are social species, which means they have complex social relationships with each other. Cat ancestors were loners, but the process of domestication influenced the development of social skills of these animals. You can still see a strong individualism in them, which often manifests itself in the need to rest in solitude.
Does knowing it matter when choosing the perfect cat bed? Being aware of the specificity of the cat’s nature, it is easier to choose a bedding model that suits the needs of your pet, and also to place the bed in a place where the animal will be happy to use it. First of all, consider what features and behaviors dominate your pet:
- the need for contact,
- a taste for a solitary lifestyle,
- a tendency to hide in the nooks and crannies of the house,
- selecting elevated positions with the possibility of observing the surroundings,
- looking for a hideout in stressful situations.
Depending on this, choose a built-in booth, a flat mattress-pillow or a bed with high rims. Put them in a secluded, warm and cozy place, but not quite secluded – so that the cat gains privacy, but does not feel lonely.
Peace of mind during possible illness
A comfortable bed is a shelter for a cat, where the animal can safely rest. It is especially important when it is sick or convalescing and needs rest in comfortable conditions. A built-in booth set in a quiet place, warm, isolating from stimuli and noise, or a medical bed with high rims filled with memory foam will allow your pet to recover in peace.
