Raven finally uses her new bed

Last December I thought it would be fun to get Raven a doll bed that you often see people using as a cat bed. It’s so cute and it would be perfect to put over the heater vent so Raven could have a little bed and we could still get heat.

In typical cat fashion, she refused to have anything to do with it. I even made a little mattress out of memory foam so it would be comfortable. Nope. She refused to get on it. She actually acted afraid of it.

The little bed has been sitting in a corner of our living room for nearly 11 months and I’ve been tempted to ask the neighbors if their girls would like it as a bed for their dolls.

I’m glad I didn’t give it away because Raven finally decided it’s an acceptable spot to take a little snooze.

I purchased the Duktig doll bed from IKEA $15, easy assembly. If you search the web you’ll see people being very creative making double-wide beds, bunk beds, triple stacked beds for their cats. It’s very amusing and there are lots of cute cat photos!

    I shall have to look that up – Raven looks quite happy and comfy.

  2. So funny! The same thing has happened here; I purchased this really nifty cat bed, so a kitty could curl up and stay nice and warm snuggled inside. No matter where I place this bed…Angel and Chuck ignored it. Finally, I hid it under a table, and prepared to put it in storage or give it away. Later that day, we cannot find Chuck. We looked in all of his usual hidey-holes. Where did we finally find him? Yep, you’ve guessed it…in that ignored bed on the floor under the table! Must be a cat rule; ignore new beddy until human is ready to get rid of it! LOL!

  3. I find the more you spend on something for the cats, the less they like it, or they make certain only to use it when you are not looking!

    That is so cool Raven, I might need one or two of those!

  5. That is a great bed! And we’re glad Raven is using it now. We were like that with our hammick when we first got it. It took about 6 months before we started to use it..now we fight over it!

    Oh raven – you look so comfortable ! I hope you really like it now.

  7. That is a neat bed.
    Guess Raven wanted to take her time checking it out and driving you crazy at the same time 😉
    It’s a fun thing we cats do to humans.
    MOL!

    Sometimes it takes a while for a kitty to decide whether she likes something!

    That’s funny I bought 3 of these beds for my darlings, Rosie sleeps in all 3, the two others I have never seen so far, lol ! But the beds are so cute I prefer them to baskets. I put little blankets inside with a paw pattern !

    How cute! Tempted to buy one for Athena but she won’t like it probably. She prefers my bed!

    She had to be sure you knew it was her own idea, and she wasn’t sleeping on it because you put it there for her! LOL

    I’m like that too although I crawled right into that igloo. I hope she keeps using the cute little bed.
