4 reasons to have a cat bed include:
1. Give your cat a place that is his own; where he can go to rest and get away from the other cats or dogs.
2. A cat bed gives your cat a safe place where she can feel secure.
3. Cat beds will help to keep your cat off your furniture. If you have a couch or chair that your cat sits on but you don't want them to because of the fur; put a cat bed there. You both win: they sit where they want to but you don't have the messy fur to clean up.
4. Having several cat beds throughout your house will make a cat very happy. One my be in a high location and the other low or on a favorite spot.
