+ Both of felted wool cat caves are made from natural organic wool. As I mentioned in my article the wool texture and odour naturally attract cats, what makes them feel safe and comfortable. Generally, cats are well-known for their cuddling and the wool cat cave will be a perfect place for them to feel good. I say: “For a cuddle cat a cuddle bed”.

+ Big size – which means a comfortable and relaxing environment for your cat. Especially its useful for big cats. On the picture, the cave looks quite small but it is not. Some people use them for dogs as well.

+ Easy to maintain and clean it. All felted wool cat caves have natural self-cleaning capabilities. For the light cleaning, you can use a wet sponge to remove the spots, or just vacuum cleaner to remove hair and debris. The cat house can be washed in warm water with mild soap. Using a washing machine usually not recommended due to losing its original shape.

+ Suitable for cats and their owners with allergies. Wool is well-known for its hypoallergenic and resistible to dust features.

+ Year-round material which has great insulating properties. In winter time your cat will be protected from the cold as the fibres will trap the heat. In summer the air will be circulated due to the breathable effect.

+ Felted wool cat caves can be chosen according to your home decor. You can choose from many colours and shapes.

+ Handmade product – high quality and precise work.

+ No need to use a cushioned pad for the interior.

+ The wool cave is stiff enough to keep the shape. Cats can sleep on it as well but even after mushing, you can make it back to its usual shape.


-/+ The price is not low but all felted wool cat caves are made from one of the greatest material – wool. One of the reasons for that price is that cat caves are handmade. Nowadays handmade work is day by day more appreciated for the time spent while producing the product. A second reason I can say is that wool is one of the long-lasting material, so surely cat caves will be used for a long time.

-/+ If you order the product online, most probably after receiving it the shape will be a bit different. Some people it takes as a negative point, but actually, it is a question of time. Once the cat starts using it and sleeping there, the shape will be back to normal.
