Cat Bed / Perch / Mat :: 2006
How does one get a cat to sit on woodwork I’ve spent a few hours making? Make sure it’s heated, of course!
Cats like heat, & are basically untrainable. Accept it, or get a dog. This stand has Arts & Crafts / Greene & Greene inspired joinery, is made with quarter sawn white oak, stained a standard brown, and coated with Danish Oil – & holds a heated mat.
The mat is an important purchase – the ones sold for cats are of the blanket variety, are easily damaged, & last one year. Maybe. Interior / Exterior mats of hard plastic are designed for dogs, come with a fuzzy cover, & last for years. Our cat owns this thing for the entire winter. Have 2 or more cats – watch them Sumo for dominancy!
