I'm not a big fan of felines. Sure, they're cute and fluffy (except those hairless ones), but they're rather sneaky and they make me feel uncomfortable. But since I wrote about a sleeping spot for dogs back in June, I thought it was only fair that I give a shout-out to cats and suggest a place for them to nap, too.
wall mounted cat beds Called the Curve, Akemi Tanaka's bentwood beds are the perfect perch for cats to curl up on, and are a smart small space solution for their design conscious owners. Available in either maple or walnut veneer with a selection of attractive fabric options for the snap on, machine-washable cushions, these babies easily mount onto the wall (only two holes are required for installation), freeing up precious floor real estate. Though they are rather expensive for a pet bed ($199), there's really no price too high if it means ultimate comfort for your cat, and a stylish space saver for your decor. It's a twofer. I love it! And unless Mr. Whiskers is on the chunky side, he should be safe and secure while stretching out on one of these-they're designed to hold up to 35 pounds. I suppose you could also use them as a dog bed (sorry, I had to say something about them). If you do though, just make sure you don't mount them too high off of the floor. Doggies aren't as good as cats at the whole vertical jumping thing. -Meghan Dockendorf, This Old House
