Does anyone else have these cat cubes? I have NEVER gotten Her Highness to sleep in any other pet bed, but this one she loves. I saw it at Walmart last year but when I went to buy one at Christmas (OK, she gets a Christmas present under the tree - wrapped and everything. She usually opens it too.) they were sold out. I found this one last week before I went home to visit. She wasn't very excited at first, but I left it on the worktable in the computer room (but didn't remove the tag) so she could consider it while I was away. I figured I would return it later.
The first night I was gone, she wandered into the computer room where my husband was online, jumped on the table, sniffed the cube a few times and crawled right in. And there she stayed for the whole evening. The next day, the same. Now she loves it. She's in there right now. He's usually on the computer in the evenings, and she can sleep in comfort and keep an eye on him at the same time - can't miss a mooching opportunity, don't you know. The only thing I would change about it is to make it a bit larger. She's a big thing, and the foam sides of the cube bulge when she stretches out. Twelve pounds of cat in a ten pound size box.
I suppose you could make one in a color to match your decor. The sides are 1/2" thick foam squares covered in nylon fabric, and the bottom is a 1 1/2" thick foam square covered on the inside with fleece. Just add a hole on one side for an entrance. One benefit of a covered bed like this is the cat's body heat makes the inside good and toasty. Great for the winter.
