The Cat Crib was launched in the USA last year (I first spotted it on Hauspanther), and I’m very excited that this product has now made it across the pond to the UK.  Hurrah!  So what’s so blummin’ great about yet another cat bed appearing on the market?  Well, that’s just it, the Cat Crib is a truly innovative product that isn’t like any other cat bed: it’s a hammock which fits under most chairs (and small tables), designed with feline ergonomics in mind, and it also happens to make life just that little bit easier for us mere humans.

Let’s look at it from a cat’s point of view first.  Cat’s like to sleep under furniture: it makes them feel secure, and provides ample opportunities for espionage.  (FACT: our cats are contractually obliged to spend a minimum 10% of their waking hours spying on us – their observations are stored in a high-security feline database, to be used for future world domination purposes.)

The problem with sleeping underneath the furniture is that it’s not as comfortable as sleeping on the furniture – drafts and hard surfaces can be an issue.  The Cat Crib will raise your cat above the worst of the drafts, and provide a cosy, springy sleeping area.

From a human perspective, the Cat Crib is a great space-saving device as it occupies the redundant floor space beneath your chairs and tables.  It’s also a handy way to reduce household clutter – it’s unobtrusively tucked away, which means you’ll have one less cat bed to trip over!  And you can clean the floor without having to move it out of the way – a big plus, in my book.

The Cat Crib is available in three colours: black, purple and neutral, and can easily cope with weights of 9kg (that’s 20lb in old money).

Here’s a video clip demonstrating just how easy-peasy it is to fit to your furniture, and how much cat-appeal it has!  (If you’re unable to view this video via email or RSS subscription, please click on the title link to watch.)

Oz & Mr. Curious was founded by June Ling, who was inspired to start the company after seeing ‘all these cool and interesting (pet) products online, but I could not source them in the UK and it was frustrating.’   I’m sure many of you know the feeling!

June believes ‘that the British pet owner should be given a wider selection of products without having to source them abroad’.  Oz & Mr. Curious aim to give their customers the choice of a variety of high-quality, innovative products at affordable prices, and will continue to source and stock a larger range as the business grows.  Which is brilliant news for UK cat and dog owners, I’m sure you’ll agree!

Here are the animals in June’s life: her adorable golden retriever puppy, Maggie, and June’s brother’s cats, Chubbsy and Fetty.

  73. amazing idea!! great for space-saving, very innovative! x

  74. I have two kitties called Barley and Nelson and they appear to suffer from extreme tiredness and as such a bed of this nature would be gratefully received. 🙂

  75. Wow! This is a fantastic idea, and would help to prevent the coating of fur I find on every soft surface throughout the house. I can see my big squishy grey kitten Wiggins loving this, and our skinny little black and white Betsy loving it even more – she prefers not to sit on us but still likes to be close and to be able to observe!

  76. Great idea. My 3 cats (Paris, Venus and Olive) would love this. Might have to get them one each though!

  77. I am about to adopt a kitten and I was just looking online for cute ped products for her when I stumbled across this site! I love the idea of the cat crib, it would be perfect for a new kitten to snooze in after a hard day’s playing.

  78. My little old lady cat would love one of these to sleep in! Especially if the chair could be placed next to the radiator when it’s cold.

  79. Carole Simpson

  84. Toulouse Claude deserves one of these!

  85. Will be interesting to see if my cat would actually sleep in this – he tends to prefer sleeping where he shouldn’t do!!

  86. Harriet Stobart

    Can’t believe this exists! This is the coolest way to snooze!

    My cat Olly may put this number above my weekly shop of Whiskas!

  103. How neat! My cat would love this!

  104. I can see Eric, Ernie and Fizzy fighting over this 🙂

  105. victoria bennett

  177. kate mitchell

    I’m about to adopt a new rescue cat but as it has been a few years since my cat died – I wasn’t ready for another kitty around until now – therefore I got rid of almost all of his bits and pieces. I suspect this cat crib would be a welcome hiding place for a new cat getting to know it’s new home.

We offered to adopt her and she’s coming to live with us on Friday. This would be a lovely welcome gift for her.
