A few weeks back, we did a review on the Sleepypod Crater Dot. I have to admit that the cats weren't totally into it - they used it more for a launching pad when they were playing, and sometimes slept on it, but that was about it. UNTIL! I moved the Crater Dot to the kitchen. They use it everyday, all day long. If Charlie's not on it, then Trigg is. It's hilarious. Everytime I go into the kitchen, one of them is on it. It is so cute. I have really come to adore the Crater Dot for this reason and feel like I needed to let you know about this because my product review on it was OK - but it deserves more praise.
Someone once told me that cats like to lay in areas of the house that are unbalanced and need more Feng Shui. I'd like to say that I knew where I need Feng Shui in my home, but I don't. I actually just set the Crater Dot down in the kitchen because it is the closest to my garage door and I was planning on donating it to an animal shelter since the cats really didn't use it all that much. And I wanted other kitties to benefit from such a great bed.
Well, now, I think the Crater Dot will forever remain with us. So the point is - let this be a lesson learned that it isn't always the product that is the problem, but rather the human that has control over the product that ends up being the problem.
The Crater Dot can be purchased on Amazon and ships free with their Free Super Saver Shipping. This is also why I like to keep a product for 6-8 weeks to see how the cats respond before featuring it. But that still isn't a sure fire way of knowing if they truly like it - look at the Crater Dot for crying out loud.
Here's a quick video I caught of Charlie on the Crater Dot Bed on 12/21/10: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T00eemLR1Zw[/youtube] Thank you again to Sleepypod for such a wonderful pet bed. We love it and think it's perfect for our kitchen!
