  • The 10 Best Cat Beds in Canada — Reviews & Top Picks 2021

    1. Hepper Pod Cat Bed — Best Overall

    Hepper Pod Pet Bed

    Size 15 x 19 x 18.5 inches
    Material Microfibre, fleece, steel legs
    Style Elevated round pod
    Color Grey

    The best overall cat bed for Canadians is the Hepper Pod Cat Bed for its attractive and modern appearance and cozy, cave-like structure. It’s shaped like a round pod in a grey knit fabric and comes with a removable, machine-washable liner made with microfibre and Sherpa fleece. It is elevated off the floor on a steel frame, giving cats that feeling of being safe because they love being up high. The pod has a lid that is detachable for cats that might prefer an open bed.

    However, it is expensive, and it might be best for small to medium-sized cats. Large cats might still want to sleep in it, but they won’t fit inside well.

    Pros
    • Attractive and modern
    • Cozy pod in grey knit fabric
    • Liner is machine washable and made with Sherpa fleece and microfibre
    • Pod has a detachable lid
    • Elevated off the floor on steel legs
    Cons
    • Expensive
    • Might not fit large cats

    2. Hepper Cat Nest — Best Value

    Hepper Cat Nest washable cat bed

    Size 17.5 x 17.5 x 5.75 inches
    Material Fleece and microfibre
    Style Round nest-like
    Color Grey

    The best cat bed for the money is the Hepper Cat Nest for its cozy uniqueness, and cats seem to love this one! It’s best for cats up to 20 pounds and is a comfy nest in an attractive grey. Cats will love to curl up in this nest, and it also takes up less room than some other cat beds. The lining is removable and machine washable and is made with soft microfibre and Sherpa fleece.

    Unfortunately, it is only available in one size, so large cats out there might have a hard time fitting in it.

    Pros
    • Cozy and unique
    • Made in grey Sherpa fleece
    • Takes up less room than some other cat beds
    • Liner made with Sherpa fleece and is machine washable
    Cons
    • Larger cats won’t fit

    At Excited Cats we’ve admired Hepper for many years, and decided to take a controlling ownership interest, so that we could benefit from the outstanding designs of this cool cat company!

    3. Bedsure Cat Bed — Premium Choice

    Bedsure Cat Bed for Indoor Cats

    Size Small (15 x 15 x 15), Medium (19 x 19 x 19)
    Material Microfibre
    Style Cave
    Color Light grey, dark grey, blue, beige

    Our pick for a premium choice cat bed for Canadians is the Bedsure Cat Bed that comes in small and medium and four different colours. It is a cozy cave in a suede-like material. The medium size can fit cats up to 20 pounds and is soft yet sturdy, with high-density foam for the outer structure and a soft removable cushion that can be machine washed. The top can be folded down flat and the cushion placed on top if your cat decides that an enclosed space isn’t for them. It also has a non-slip bottom.

    On the negative side, it is expensive and might be considered too small for some cats. Just be sure to double-check that you’re ordering the medium and not the small if you need the bigger size.

    Pros
    • Comes in two sizes and four colours
    • Cozy cave in microfibre material
    • Soft removable cushion can be machine washed
    • Top can be folded down as a different sleeping space
    • Non-slip bottom
    Cons
    • Expensive
    • Might be too small for some cats

    4. Junspow Cat Bed

    JUNSPOW Cat Bed

    Size 16.5 x 17.7 x 9 inches
    Material Metal and cotton
    Style Nest-like hammock
    Color Nest-like hammock

    The Junspow Cat Bed comes in either grey or pink cotton that will keep your cat cool in the summer and cozy and warm in the winter. It is in a hammock-like style. Cotton is a breathable material that will keep your cat quite comfortable. This bed can be used inside or outside, and since it is elevated on metal legs, it will keep your cat off cold floors.

    On the negative side, it is expensive, and some owners might find it difficult to assemble: The metal legs don’t always line up correctly for the screws.

    Pros
    • Made with breathable cotton in either grey or pink
    • Hammock-like style
    • Elevated on metal legs, keeping your cat off cold floors
    • Used inside or outside
    Cons
    • Expensive
    • Might be difficult to assemble

    5. Rabbitgoo Cat Bed

    rabbitgoo Cat Bed for Indoor Cats

    Size 20 x 20 x 4.7 inches
    Material Polyester
    Style Round
    Color Dark grey, light grey, dark brown, light brown, pink

    Rabbitgoo’s Cat Bed is a round donut shape in a comfy shaggy material that comes in five colours. It has a raised rim that will make your cat feel snug and has a non-slip bottom. It is machine washable and can also be put in the dryer (recommended), and the filler provides elasticity and durability.

    The negatives include that it is made primarily with polyester and while it can fit up to a 13-pound cat, it’s better for smaller cats.

    Pros
    • Shaggy material in five colours
    • Raised rim and non-slip bottom
    • Filling provides durability and elasticity
    • Machine washable and dryer safe
    Cons
    • Only for small cats
    • Made with polyester

    6. BinetGo Cat Bed

    BinetGo Dog and Cat Bed

    Size 18 x 18 x 5.5 inches
    Material Polyester
    Style Round
    Color Navy blue, beige, pink

    The BinetGo Cat Bed comes in three colours and fits cats up to 12 pounds. It has a non-slip bottom and can be washed in a washing machine and tumble-dried. This is a soft and cushy donut-shaped bed that many cats will love curling up in.

    The disadvantages of this cat bed are that it tends to have a chemical smell when you first get it (which will probably dissipate out after airing out for a while) and that it arrives shrink-wrapped, which might affect the shape and fluffiness.

    Pros
    • Comes in three colours
    • Non-skid bottom
    • Can be put in the dryer and washing machine
    • Donut-shaped and cozy
    Cons
    • Might have a chemical smell
    • Arrives shrink-wrapped, which might affect the shape

    7. Love’s Cabin Round Donut Cat Bed

    Love's cabin Round Donut Cat and Dog Cushion Bed

    Size 20 x 20 x 5 inches
    Material Faux suede
    Style Round
    Color Blue, brown, grey, dark grey, green, pink, red, yellow, navy

    Love’s Cabin Round Donut Cat Bed comes in a whopping nine colours! It’s well priced and has a raised rim that can act as a resting place for your cat’s head (or paw or tail), but it can also give them that safe and cozy feel. It is machine washable and has a non-slip bottom. Love’s Cabin also provides a 30-day return and refund on its cat beds, with no hassles.

    However, it is probably best suited for small cats because the inner diameter is on the small side. It also might not be as fluffy as what you’re expecting.

    Pros
    • Comes in 9 colours and has a good price
    • Raised rim for a cozy feel
    • Non-slip bottom and machine washable
    • 30-day return and refund policy
    Cons
    • Best for small cats
    • Might not be that fluffy

    8. AmazonBasics Round Bolster Pet Bed

    AmazonBasics Round Bolster Pet Bed

    Size 20 x 20 x 6 inches or 20 x 20 x 8 inches
    Material Canvas and flannel
    Style Round or octagon
    Color Brown and cream

    The AmazonBasics Round Bolster Cat Bed has a reasonable price. It comes in two shapes: the familiar round and not-so-familiar octagon. The round is cheaper than the octagon, but that’s partly because the octagon has a removable cushion that the round does not. Like many other round beds, it has a raised rim for a cozy sleep and is made up of flannel and canvas materials. It can be machine washed but does need to be air-dried.

    On the downside, it is quite small and would be best for a small cat, and it might not hold up when you put it in the washing machine. It may lose its filling during washing.

    Pros
    • Good price for the round bed
    • Raised rim and made with flannel and canvas
    • Can be machine washed
    Cons
    • Octagon shape is more expensive than the round
    • Best for a small cat
    • Filling might come out when washed

    9. AmazonBasics Collapsible Cube Cat Bed

    AmazonBasics Collapsible Cube Cat Bed

    Size 15 x 15 x 17 inches
    Material Faux suede and Sherpa fleece
    Style Cube cave
    Color Grey, brown, navy

    The AmazonBasic’s Collapsible Cube Cat Bed comes in three colours and is made with a suede-like material. It also has a Sherpa fleece top so your cat can choose to sleep inside the cave or on top, and it has little peek-a-boo windows and pompoms for your cat to play with. It’s sturdy and will work well for homes with two cats: One can sleep inside and the other on top.

    On the downside, this cat bed does tend to have a strong chemical smell. Also, this is only an occasional problem and depends on the style of cat bed, but the beds with a circle peek-a-boo window (the other beds have an oblong window) have had cats stick their heads out and gotten the plastic ring stuck around their necks. That said, you can just pop the ring out to ensure that this doesn’t happen.

    Pros
    • Comes in three colours
    • Sherpa fleece on top
    • Cat can sleep inside or on top
    • Peek-a-boo windows for playing
    • Included pompoms inside
    Cons
    • Strong chemical smell
    • Plastic rings on small windows might get stuck on your cat

    10. AmazonBasics Extra Large Scratching Post With Bed

    AmazonBasics Extra Large Cat Scratching Post and bed

    Size 21.5” height and 14.5” inside the bed
    Material Plush bed and sisal
    Style Scratching post and bed
    Color Black and grey

    This AmazonBasics Extra Large Cat Bed gives you a scratching post and cat bed for large cats in one. The bed is a nice soft, plush fabric in grey, and the inside diameter is 14.5 inches. It sits on a black woven sisal scratching post, is about 21.5 inches high, and includes a dangling toy.

    However, it is quite expensive, and it might wobble a bit when a particularly large cat jumps into it. While it might fit large cats, it’s still too small for very large cats, particularly those that prefer to stretch out.

    Pros
    • Scratching post and large bed in one
    • Includes dangling toy
    • Bed is 14.5 inches for larger cats
    • Nice plush bed and woven sisal scratching post
    Cons
    • Expensive
    • Might be a bit wobbly
    • Won’t fit really large cats

    Buyer’s Guide

    Before you purchase a cat bed, check out this buyer’s guide to learn about factors that could impact your decision.

    Size

    The size of the cat bed is vital because cats come in so many different sizes. Try to measure your cat while they are asleep, as this can give you a good idea of how big (or small) their bed should be. The average cat will do well with a diameter of 15 inches, but you’ll probably want to go bigger for large breeds. However, if your cat prefers an enclosed space, you should aim for a smaller bed.

    Comfort

    This is for the senior cats or cats with mobility issues. You’ll want a bed that is easy for your cat to enter and exit, with no climbing or jumping required. For any cats with issues such as arthritis, you can aim for beds that have orthopedic support, which can include memory foam. You might also want to consider self-heating beds for older cats, to help keep them warm.

    Sleeping Style

    The sleeping style of your cat can dictate what kind of bed you end up getting. Some cats love to stretch out to their full length, while others prefer to curl up. So, you might want to go for the enclosed cave or pod-style beds for your cat that loves to curl up under blankets and the larger and more rectangular beds for the cat that loves to stretch out.

    Washability

    All cat beds should be washable in some way. Some might require the cushions to be removed, while others can be thrown into the washing machine completely. It’s crucial to follow the washing and drying instructions, or you might ruin the bed. For some beds, the filling might shift and change the shape of the bed, or it might even come out.

    Conclusion

    The Hepper Pod Cat Bed is a great choice for the best overall bed for cats. It has an attractive modern appearance and a cozy, cave-like structure. The best bang for your buck goes to the Hepper Cat Nest for its cozy uniqueness. Finally, the Bedsure Cat Bed is one of those “expensive but worth it” cat beds for its adaptability and machine-washable cushion.

    Hopefully, through these reviews, you’ll find the next best cat bed for your ball of floof. Their happiness can mean your happiness.
