There’s nothing that a cat loves more than feeling cozy and warm.
They’re often seen trying to squeeze into the tightest spots physically possible, and if your cat has ever gone missing from your house, there’s a good chance that they’re snuggled on top of some cupboards, behind the couch, or underneath your bed.
The darker and more confined, the better.
“Cats like to position themselves so they can see out of the opening,” says Marilyn Krieger, certified cat behaviorist and owner of The Cat Coach and Urban Edge Wildlife. “They feel safe and hidden from potential threats, while at the same time they can see possible predators and other threats. Their heads are facing out, so it can be easier for them to fight if they need to.”
With this in mind, it’s no surprise that underneath your bed is a cat’s favorite spot.
Not only is it safe and hidden enough for them, but they’re also able to see out and assess their environment.
Hiding under a bed is already an enjoyable experience for cats – but what if we told you that there was a way to make it even more enjoyable?
Combining human furniture with a design that cats will love, this bed frame looks like a pretty standard bed at first glance, with a few decorative holes cut into the sides.
But hidden underneath the mattress is what can only be described as a miniature playground for cats.
The creators of this bed told Bored Panda: “With our furniture, you can not only continue to enjoy your bed normally but also, you are giving a very special place to your kitten, every cat lover would like to have this bed!”

The bed frame consists of maze-like passageways and closed-off areas that a cat can explore, play and sleep in.
Multiple holes allow the cat to enter from whichever side they prefer, and gives them their much-needed lookout points.
“With our bed, our cat clients don’t feel invaded in their territory, nor do they have to run looking for a safe space to hide,” the CatLife designers explain. “Under this bed, they find a quiet place, full of calm and security, and best of all, it still has the same functionality for the owner! You will continue to rest as you normally would, but now, you provide a unique den to your cat.”

If you’re looking for a bed that’s perfect for both humans and kitties, then this could be it!
The bed costs between $550 to $680 – but with that price, you also bring home a mattress, two bedside tables, and some other decorations.
Sounds like a bargain to us!
As pet owners, the most important thing is for our pets to feel safe and comfortable in our homes, and the gatrimonial bed will certainly provide that.
“With passageways and beds that our cat clients can use to sleep, rest, and hide when they feel invaded in their territory, the main function of the bed is to serve as a safe place for the cats,” Catster say.
