Where I Might Stash a Cat

So you’re a cat person, but you don’t want to appear to be a “Crazy Cat Lady” (or man!) But your kitty cat, she just needs a nice place to sleep! What do you do? You probably go about buying something big, maybe a color you didn’t quite like, and hard to manage blending in with the rest of your decor. Well that’s just silly! You don’t go to the pet store to buy a pet bed, you go to the design store!

You know that if you’re a design-conscious sort of person (and if you’ve reading this post, you are,) that your cat is one too! You’re cat isn’t a person (as far as I know,) but there’s certain things your cat will work with as well as things it simply wont.

I’ve got a cat in my apartment. She belongs to my fiance, but she is her own kitty. This cat only really interacts with things that she loves. She likes cat toys, but she LOVES human things. She likes things that are bolted down, things that are a part of the apartment: the windows, the rugs (we’ve got hardwood floors,) the couch. She’s never enjoyed the “pet beds” that she’s been gifted. She loves things that belong to us. The humans.

The Curve Pet Bed by fresh designer Akemi Tanaka IS that. It’s lookin so nice, and installs so seamlessly, heck, this kitty would sit on it all day long. Right up there on her pretty pretty perch.

BONUS: Curve is also intent on holding small doggies too!

    XD I like it!

  • daneel says:

    It’s nice, but I’m not sure if my cat would use it. Besides, how is the kitten supposed to reach it?

    • Acey says:

      Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I'd sooner make one than spend $200 on something they probably won't even use. My cats have beds, but they prefer laying on paper or plastic bags for some reason.

    I love it!

    Pretty sure my kitty would enjoy it too, at least for the first 15 minutes until she goes to sleep on some cardboard somewhere, lol!

    man i want a big one for me! forget the cat, i have allergies!

  • Lex says:

    Do they have a design for jumbo-sized cats? I’ve a 20+ pound Maine Coon Cat that would seriously stress-test this design (or the integrity of my drywall)!

  • I think you forgot the decimal point, this should be $20.00 right?!

  • Shawna says:

    There were SO many grammatical errors in this post.
    And that’s WAY to expensive for me to care.
    Bring the price down, learn proper english, and you’ve got yourself a deal.

  • Name here says:

    Heck, I wouldn’t even own a cat.

  • GRS says:

    I like it, but I would NEVER pay $200 for it. Just because it’s from a designer, the price has to be ridiculous? It’s a piece of wood with a cushion…..for a cat. I think I’ll go down the road to IKEA, buy a very similar shelf and velcro a cushion to it. Done for a fraction of the price, and very easy to duplicate.

  • Boss says:

    @Sara, I thought the same thing!
    I love this concept, but I feel like I could make it myself for a quarter the price.

    I can make the same thing for less than $20.

  • I does look pretty cool, but would it hold a fully grown british shorthair boy ๐Ÿ™‚ ?

    Those things would need to screwed into the timber or steel frame very securely. We have four cats at the moment and they'd give these things a good workout!

  • people are stupid says:

    Anyone who would pay $200 for a small shelf and bracket that you can get for $10 in any hardware store, is an idiot with far too much money to burn. Or you could just do what I did and make one for free with recycled materials: 1 piece of wood, 2 small shelf brackets from a shelf not being used anymore(may have been an old spice rack), and staple or glue on an old towel.

  • Katie says:

    I can think of a lot more important things to spend $200 on. Unless you’re willing to have these in your house to either bump your head on, walk into with your ankle, shin, knee, etc. And you’ll just look like a crazy cat lady. I love my animals just like they were family, but I wouldn’t spend $200 on this.
    My cat sleeps in the damn sink!
