Cats can sleep anywhere, usually on the couch where you don’t want them to sleep or in your bed (where you may also don’t want them to sleep). Because cats sleep so often and in practically anywhere they please, you might think that cats don’t need a special bed, but they may appreciate one anyways. (Or they may just prefer to sleep in the cardboard box that the cat bed came in.)
Business Insider examined several cat beds and determined the best ones based on what they think cats may like. This alone reveals that Business Insider is catering more to cat owners than to actual cats. Still, if you want to buy your cat a unique present, consider buying a special cat bed. Your cat may ignore it, but at least you can make an effort that you care for a cat that doesn’t care about you.
