Quick background on my cat: he's a 13.5lb Peterbald, extremely needy, picky, and sensitive. He hardly plays with any of the toys I've gotten him, has rejected a scratching post in favor of a lovelier sofa, refuses to eat most food, and won't leave my side. Lately he's been walking on my face at night because I haven't been exercising him enough (I was sick). I decided to try a cave so he can have a place to sleep that's not my face.
I couldn't be happier. I put my plush bathrobe inside so he has something soft to sleep against and he's now completely passed out in it. Just seeing him in it was worth the pricetag, as I was nervous that he would flat out reject it, like so many other things. But if I can get through one night of proper sleep, this will be like a MasterCard commercial:
cat - free
cat cave - $60
uninterrupted sleep with no cat on face - priceless.
Update (the next day): no cat on face. Levi slept in the cave all night. He's sat on it, in it, has tried to tear it up but it goes back to its original shape with no issue. I'm so happy. I got an email from the owners of the company explaining it's a family-run business and they've already commented on my review. I forgot to mention they included a complimentary yellow wool ball that Levi promptly ignored, like he does most things, but the gesture was so appreciated. It's a pretty color and it'll find a place on my study table as a reminder of good business practices. I only wish all things in life were this supported and this easy.
