Cats in baskets

Cat, Black, White, Sitting, Basket

Cats sleep most of the day, and they usually find a cozy spot to sleep. It might be your bed, favorite chair, pile of papers and books, new pile of linen, in addition to a piece of furniture, or even in an isolated corner.
For my cat Mittens, those were all preferred spots at the same time or another, that’s until I got her a cat basket. Two days later I added her favorite toy to the cat basket, observed from afar, and waited patiently. Since that day it was her favorite, cozy spot.
Cat baskets are available in a variety of sizes, they are composed of different substances, are available in most pet stores, and can be purchased online. Prices are fair, and our faithful family members deserve to be treated to their own place. They don’t just sleep in their basketthey stretch, and roll and play.
While shopping for a cat basket you want to consider not only the size, but also the age of your cat. For those who have a young cat you will need to obtain a cat basket large enough to accommodate a growing cat. The cat basket should be large enough for your cat to stretch out, as cats often do, into whatever position he or she likes.
The majority of cat baskets I have seen are made from interwoven rattan/reed, typical basket material. Including a cushion, blanket, towel, or old, but clean clothes is all that is necessary. I occasionally use old clothing and towels then discard when soiled as my cat spends thirty minutes to an hour outdoor each day, and after swallowing all that grass I anticipate vomiting. Whenever the rattan/reed material gets soiled with vomitus, I just wipe with a moist soapy cloth or disinfectant.
Cat baskets are also made from plastic and foam rubber. They are easier to clean and disinfect. The foam rubber is usually covered with a zipped, machine washable material which could be easily laundered in the washing machine.
All you have to do is unzip and remove foam. The plastic variety, I avoid due to fear of potential toxic exposure to BPA to my pet. We have to be careful when purchasing items made of plastic whether for people or for our animal family members. As have been revealed by the media some goods, including plastic items like toys and feeding bowls from China and other foreign countries, may contain toxic substances containing BPA and other goods lead, which can be harmful. USA made products are usually safer.
