SmartyKat Bamboo Bunk Product Review
We received the SmartyKat Bamboo Bunk with two other SmartyKat products and this is the first one we are featuring. If you’re looking for a fancy cat bed that is lightweight, easy to assemble and looks cool, this might be the right one for you.
The concept behind the SmartyKat Bamboo Bunk is that it provides a place for cats to retreat to while feeling secure at the same time. I also think the concept involves a designer cat bed that stands out from traditional offerings.
This fancy cat bed measures 17″X16.25″X14″. As you will see in the review video and the how to put it together video, my Ragdoll cats, Charlie and Trigg, are a little bit big for this bed. However, as any wise cat owner knows that doesn’t necessarily mean the kitties don’t like it. If they like it, they will find a way to use it. However, in general, I would say this bed is better for smaller cats, rather than large breed cats like Ragdolls.
I never like to post a bad review – I just think it brings bad karma. For this reason, you will never see a bad review on this site. However, I will always post honest reviews – and this is me being honest. I do think this bed is small for Ragdolls – however, I do NOT think this is a bad bed. I think it is really neat! I know there are readers that have cats other than Ragdolls or in addition to their Ragdolls. I love how it is designed and love how you can easily put it together. I love the little pillow that’s super soft and the little feather thing that they can play with. Mine didn’t go crazy with the feather thing – thank goodness. They liked it, but had they gone crazy with it, I would probably have cut it off just because I would hate for something to happen with it while I wasn’t at home.
They both were instantly attracted to it and wanted to go inside – I loved that. I loved that it created enough curiosity and also that they felt comfortable about it’s appearance to go inside. Charlie just isn’t a cat that likes to be enclosed, so he had little interest in it – but Trigg did use it on and off. One of the problems might be that we have so many bed options – and therefore, he didn’t always choose this one. However, I think he would if our other bed options were eliminated and as I moved this to the basement for the review video, he immediately got in it, as you can see below in the video.
The Smartykat Bamboo Bunk is sold at:
- Walmart -$26.97
- Target – $39.99
- Amazon – $19.99 this must be a first generation one as it’s slightly different
