Kittycentric Felted Cat Cave Review

Kittycentric Cozy Cat Cave Bed

Over a month ago, we were sent three felted cat caves from Kittycentric to review.  Since Charlie and Trigg had already reviewed two cat caves, I thought it might be fun to see how other Ragdoll cats, like Caymus and Murphy (12-year old cats who live with my parents) and Addie and Ash (3-year old cats who live with my sister) responded to them.

So this review process was more substantial with a total of 6 cats checking these out.

These caves are beautifully handmade with natural fibers – using a thick wool felting. The thickness of the felted wool helps them keep their shape and position you leave them in.  And each cave has a nice size opening – as you can see in the videos, the cats had no problem entering and exiting the caves.

100% New Zealand Merino Wool

Yes, these egg-shaped cat cocoons are handmade from 100% New Zealand Merino wool that stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

I can’t attest to this, but Kittycentric says that “The natural lanolin in this material rub off on your kitty’s fur creating a protective barrier that makes them itch less and smell better”

As you can see in the videos below and the photos, the cats had no problem going in and out of the cat cave – the hole was definitely big enough.

Cave or Bed?

The cave can be flattened into a round mat instead! In fact, all 6 cats seemed to like to use it more like this – but might like the cave feature more in the winter months (it was the Spring rolling into Summer when we reviewed this)

Placement

One of the things I learned early on reviewing cat beds is that it’s all about placement of the bed.  Cats sometimes will not use a bed if it’s not in the right spot.  My sister said her cats weren’t using the bed – and one weekend (during the review process) when she was out of town, I had to go by and check on her cats a few times.  I couldn’t find her cat Addie when I arrived, so I phoned my sister to see where she would be.  Amy said she likes to sleep in the guest room closet – so I checked in there and sure enough, that’s where she was.  So I grabbed the Kittycentric Cat Cave, compacted it down to a bed and put it in the closet.  My sister sent me this photo when she returned.

Washable

You can hand wash it with a little water and a mild wool-friendly cleaner.  I did not try this – as we did wash a felted cat cave (another brand made of the same material) on cold water in the delicate cycle and had no problems.  My experience has been as long as it is not exposed to heat, it’ll stay it’s shape – but that’s at your own risk.

Bonus Toy

As a reviewer on Amazon said, “An added plus was the toy ball, which disappeared into the alternate universe where cats hide their stuff.” – I totally agree and could never sound as clever as that!

All 6 cats loved the bonus toy – but none of the human owners know where those toy balls are now!  Knowing my two, it will resurface again.

Overall, I think the Kittycentric Cat Caves are a great cat bed option for Ragdolls and other kitties.  If I was getting a kitten, I would start with one for a bed because it would be a great place play and sleep…and could help with a little one that is teething.  I would also get one for Trigg because he loves enclosed spaces.  I like that it’s safe – free of chemicals – so I don’t have to worry about my cats laying on it.

We received the Kittycentric Cat Caves for review from the manufacturer and also asked that they pay a small review fee.  Receiving the free product and the review fee did not influence this honest post.

  1. Super pawesome review post, Jenny! Lurved the video and the pics were wonderful! This is a beautiful cat cave bed! Lurve that felted wool so much! 🙂 <3

    Hopefully, The Case of The Missing Balls (sounds like a Nancy Drew mystery!) will be solved eventually…lol 🙂

    So many pretty kittehs who lurve their new cat cave bed! 🙂

    This has motivated me to try once again with Miss PSB's cat cave bed. I'll try catnip again now and see if it makes any difference THIS time.

    Lurve how Mr. Charlie-mancer was so adorably curled up in his bed like a caterpiggle! So cute! The time you spent with Ash & Addie was awesome! They are so precious! And it's always a joy to see Caymus and Murphy in one of your videos! Just missed The Chigster this time!

    Thanks for the great review!

    Big hugs & lots of love!

    Patti & Miss Pink Sugarbelle 🙂 <3

    1. Patti, “The Case of The Missing Balls” – ha ha ha.

      Cool on PSB’s cave – I do hope it does the trick and also move it about or put it in places she already lays. Amy just sent me a photo of Addie on her bed in the closet – so I added it to the review.

      PLMK how it goes with PSB and the re-try!

      Yes, I realized that Chiggy didn’t make the video – poor, Chiggy. He did use the cave as a bed, like Charlie – but Charlie used it more.

      1. I put our cat cave on the love seat in the living room where she likes to curl up sometimes during the day. I put it there in cave mode and compacted mode. She sniffed and stuck her head in the hole in cave mode and she sniffed and put her front paws in it in the compacted mode. I dumped a bit of her fave catnip in it using the compacted mode and she put her front paws in it and ate up all the catnip and hasn’t been back near it since that happened last night. Hilarious! But I’ll keep trying to move it around here and there some more and putting her fave toys in it to see if I can get her to curl up in it. I’ll keep you posted… Sigh…. 🙂 <3

      2. ha ha ha – i love it. reading your description makes it so easy to visualize – you do a good job with descriptive text for me. oh, ms. psb….

      3. Awww, thank you! Yes, Miss PSB is quite the Sleep Diva when it comes to her beds. However, she’s absolutely CRAZY about her Infinity Scratcher now and actually will take naps on it now and then. I think she’s just more of a cardboard gal or perhaps she doesn’t care for the texture of the particular wool cat cave bed I choose. (I forget the name now but it was one of the very first ones you reviewed.) Go figure. Won’t give up, though! Human versus Kitteh! Who will win? We will see…. 🙂 <3

      4. oh! put it on the infinity scratcher and see if she will lay on it there – if she doesn’t, then i think cat wins. she can still scratch with the cave on there, right? well, if it’s compacted?

      5. I’ll definitely give that a try just to see her reaction! I’ll put it right in the middle and see what she does….lol. Of course, Cat will win Every Single Time cuz Cats Are Like Charlie Sheen…WINNING! (Couldn’t help myself with that throwback reference!) 🙂 <3
