The cats that I have shared my home with have made it very clear that they are not impressed with the price of a bed. It's the same scenario as giving a child a present and having them enjoy the box the gift came in more than the gift itself. Given the chance, cats will show you what type of bed they desire.

How true, how true! My last puss passed away at the ripe old age of 23 and a half. All her life she just loved a piece of newspaper, and if her paper wasn't there, she would find a piece of confetti if necessary to sleep on! We used to laugh ourselves silly watching her circle a little piece of paper on the floor, then trying to tuck her whole body onto it!

But her second fave place was definitely a cardboard box, and woe-be-tide if any of the dogs went past, forgetting to be wary, as a paw would come flying out, quick as a wink, and swat the unsuspecting pooch on the nose or rump! She even used to scratch a little hole in one corner for a viewing window. We really miss Sweetie cat, but I'm not sure the pooches feel the same way!

My cat, who was born in a barnyard, just wanted to sleep on dirt. We have a balcony so we got a big pot and planted a small maple tree in it. He would curl up under the tree and sleep the day away. It looked like the dreams were the best.

I absolutely love all these stories. So typical of a cat and yet so individual. The story about the cat who lived to be 23 brought back memories to me of one of my cats who lived to 21, even though he had diabetes all his life.

I made a cat box bed for my late cat, Midnight. He would go outside to do his business, as he was a stray who showed up on my porch one cold winter night. He didn't really like a litter box.

I have one of those cat beds that is just the bottom with short sides around. I've been trying to come up with a way of making a cover for it because my cat likes the "cave" feel.

My sun shield for the car had fallen off the table and landed upside down. It was the silver kind that looks like aluminum foil. I found my kittens, Tommy and Peanut, had made themselves a nice comfortable nap mat out of it.

If you want a cheap cat bed, use a banana box with a cushion. When they get chewed and tatty, just get another one. They are big enough even for a large Ragdoll cat and her kittens.

I keep any plastic cake box I get from Walmart. I wash the top half of it and put a sweater in it. I hide it somewhere cozy for the cats. They love to lay in them.
