Cats love having their own little hiding places where they feel safe enough to nap or just rest as they observe the happenings in their kingdom.
These cat caves - sometimes called igloos or tents - are essentially covered cat beds. They are available in a huge variety of gorgeous designs, from plush to plastic. Here are 15 awesome cat caves that are practical as well as beautiful. Most of all, they're just fun to have around your home - for your cat and for you!
Simple and elegant, the Armarkat Cat Cave offers plenty of room for your cat to lounge inside.
If your cat loves boxes, he or she is going to love the Kitty Kube! It's flexible enough to squash into an open bed shape too, offering your cat a double-layered extra soft open bed.
Even if you're scared of sharks you'll soon find out Kitty is not. This spacious shark is one that cats love crawling into!
Need to turn a plush open cat bed into a cave? Why not zip it up? Easy to clean and versatile, this zippered igloo is a popular choice for a cat cave.
The cat ball is a brilliant concept! It's a hexagonal "ball" with two openings making it a tunnel among cat caves (and a cat cave among tunnels, of course).
Wool felt beds are crocheted with real wool which is then felted to create a unique fluffy texture. These beds are handmade in Nepal from New Zealand Merino wool for comfort and durability. Each one is a unique item.
Left to its own devices, this cat cave turns into a flat pita pocket. You can be sure it will soon be filled not with yummy falafel balls, but with an adorable cat! Cats find this cave irresistible.
Why settle for a pet bed when you can get Kitty a real lion's den? Round, plush and wild looking, this cat cave even has its own ears and a mane!
If a lion is too intimidating, how about a fun colorful fish? Kitty can play Jonah and get in and out at whale.
This huge mouse-shaped cat cave is so awesome! It's strong enough to double as a scratching post with its sisal covered roof. It also has two entries, each with its own stringed ball to pounce at!
This adorable soft piggy cave is perfect if you want to introduce a pink touch to your room decor. Soft and round, it offers your cat a safe place all her own.
If your cat loves to get under the covers on your bed, he or she will probably love this bed. Not all cats take to the concept right away, but you can leave it open at first and only later offer the cover of the upper bun for easier adjustment.
