For extra warmth and cozi-
ness, choose a hideaway made
from soft fabric or felt. Cats love
to curl up inside these cozy caves,
and most cat caves are machine
washable. Choose from a wide
variety of colors and patterns
to match your décor.
DIY cat hideaways You can always make your own creative cat hideaway with a few modifications to a piece of urniture. Cabinets and benches can be easily hacked to give your cat an accessible space that looks great!
Furniture hideaways There are lots of stylish options for furniture that serves as the perfect cat hideaway. Some pieces double as side tables or footstools. Your guests might never even know there’s a cat hiding inside!
Hideaways don’t always have
to be on the ground.
Give Kitty a new perspective
with a raised hangout so she
can keep an eye on
what’s happening from
her safe spot.

FEATURES TO LOOK FOR:
Easy to clean: Choose a hideaway that
can be thrown in the washing machine or
easily opened for regular cleaning inside.
Easy to reach inside: Make sure you
can reach inside the hideaway not just for
cleaning but also in case you need to get
your cat out.
Multiple openings: Ideally, hideaways
should have more than one opening, especially in a multi-cat household.
