You might’ve seen that when we previously got a wool-felted cat bed for product review, Trigg responded crazily to it! All I did was slice a knife through the packing tape in preparation for an arrival video, and just opening the box that wee bit made Trigg look for what was inside.
I was so surprised by his reaction to wool! Ever since, I have enjoyed looking at all the different and creative ways wool cat beds can be created. Many of these move away from traditional cat furniture designs, coming in various shapes and attractive colors.

The Cat Cave Bed is a fun place for your cat to relax and escape, whether they’re in the mood for playtime or a nap. Made from 100% felted wool from alpine sheep, it’s durable and can even be washed in the washing machine without losing shape.

Why Are Felt and Wool Cat Beds Good for Cats?
One of the main benefits of choosing felt wool cat beds is the lack of artificial materials in their manufacture. A lot of standard cat beds are made from materials that aren’t sustainable. They are also often treated with fire-retardant chemicals, which can actually be harmful to cats.
Choosing a felt or wool bed instead means your kitty is kept safe from these harmful toxins and can sleep and play to their heart’s content in a healthy, comfy space. Wool and felt are also great insulators, so the insides of the cat caves stay nice and warm without overheating. Your indoor cats will love to laze the day away inside.
Just be sure to check to size – you’ll need to get a large cat house for breeds like Ragdoll cats who need enough space. They won’t want to be left with a paw sticking out of the door! And even the biggest cat cave beds only occupy small spaces in your home.
Cat Cave Alternatives
Cat cave beds such as these aren’t suitable for every kitty. If you own height-loving felines, they may not be comfortable enjoying a nap on the ground. For those cats, you may consider the best cat trees instead or a cat condo that incorporates baskets for sleeping along with a cat scratching post or other accessories for stimulation.
When buying a cat cave bed, remember that Etsy is a global marketplace and that these products are often made and shipped from locations all over the globe. Etsy shoppers should always check the expected delivery times.
But this opens up your options, with more availability for a host of cat bed designs. So, while these are 9 of the best Etsy cat beds I’ve found, take your time browsing the site to find more of your own.
