Cat Mats Create a Special Place for Your Cat to Rest

Posted March 06, 2006

Help your cat define her “territory” while keeping fur off the furniture

Cats spend most of their time sleeping, up to two-thirds of the day, or 16 hours in a 24 hour period! With that kind of dedication to napping, your cat needs a safe and comfortable place she can call her own, possibly in multiple locations. If a designated space is not provided for her, she will find a favorite spot by herself, and it may not be a convenient one for you, her owner! Or sometimes the spot she finds might be just perfect for both of you…until you need to remove the fur she leaves behind. The truth is that you don’t need to let your cat’s resting place become an issue; it’s simple to give her the space she needs in a way you can live with.

By providing a defined boundary in a cozy location, you give your cat the security of knowing she is being taken care of, and the comfort of having a place that is truly hers. One way to accomplish this is by bringing home one or more cat mats that you can place in strategic locations around the house, such as the foot of your bed or the sofa positioned in the sun. West Paw Design offers three different types of cat mats so that you can choose what your cat would find most comfortable.

Our Nature Nap Ovals are the perfect choice for placing around your house. Available in a number of different colors, you'll be sure to find a great fit that looks beautiful in your home, while it creates a defined space for your cat and contains fur like a charm. Looking for a little more pizzazz to match your kitty's attitude? Then look no further than our ZooRest Oval (which is available in an oval or rectangular shapes)! The best part about these mats are that they can all be simply thrown in the washer and dryer on low heat and be back in place in no time at all.

Looking for something a little more modern and Earth friendly? Try our Eco Naps! All the benefits of a high quality cat mat that is easy to clean, AND made with environmentally friendly eco fabric that is made up of 85% recycled IntelliLoft® fibers! Sewn in cushion is made up of 61% recycled IntelliLoft® batting.

Make any spot even more tempting to your feline with a sprinkle of USDA Certified Organic Catnip! Not even the finicky felines can resist the combination of premium catnip and comfy mats.

Whatever cat mat you decide to go with, rest assured that, together, you and West Paw Design can find the perfect place for your cat to cozy up.
