Cat Radiator Beds

Lets face it. Cats really know how to make themselves comfortable. But what if you could offer your feline friend the ultimate cosy resting place? A radiator cat bed is just the solution. Snug, elevated and warm. What more could a cat want? Let's find out.

What is a cat radiator bed?

A cat radiator bed, put simply, is a cat bed that hangs on a radiator. There are several reasons why cats just love them; first and foremost is warmth. Curling up in a cosy spot is akin to cat heaven! Add to that the raised nature of the bed and you've ticked all the boxes. Did you know that cats prefer to sleep and hangout in places with good vantage points? This comes from their innate desire to protect themselves from any potential threats.

Choosing the right cat radiator bed

There are many cat radiator beds to choose from, and selecting one that's perfect for your home and your cat can be tricky. With luxury loungers, extra large radiator beds, double cat radiator beds (sleeping two cats) and even more on offer, let us help you choose the best cat radiator bed for you.

Some things to consider before purchasing are the dimensions, the material used for the fur lining and the bed's overall quality. Does the bed have a sturdy metal frame for durability? Will the style fit an existing radiator (is your radiator thin or thick?), and what is the position of the radiator on which you'll hang the bed? Make sure it won't be easily knocked or bumped.

Make sure you pick a colour that will fit in with your home decor. It's no use picking a bright pink bed if it's going to clash with your off-white walls and cream sofa. In our experience, a cat radiator bed in grey stands the best chance of neutrally blending in to the look and feel of a typical lounge or bedroom.
