Giveaway: Cruelty-Free Alpaca Cat Bed Mat from Wrapt Cats

alpaca-cat-mat

This giveaway is sponsored by Wrapt Cats

Instead of our usual Conscious Cat Sunday feature, we’re bringing you a special giveaway today – because the Alpaca Cat Bed Mat from Wrapt Cats is all about conscious living. This beautiful mat is handmade from a beautiful white alpaca who is living the great life with the rest of her herd out in the Pennsylvania countryside. Her shorn fleece (shaved from the back of the alpaca, the animal is not harmed in the process) was worked directly into a rug in an ecologically friendly way using only soap, water, and a whole lot of lady powered friction.

The color is a natural off-white. The mat is super soft. This is not a skin, it is only the fleece from the alpaca. She simply got a nice haircut! This alpaca rug can look great on a sofa, your bed, or wherever your cats love to lounge. It would also work nicely in the bottom of a basket or on a cat tree landing. It’s a wonderful choice for kittens in need of warmth and comfort. Creator Kathy Bennett also uses it to line a pet carrier. “I like to take something from home when we visit the vet,” she says, “and this rug is a perfect choice.”

Kathy is proud that all the pet rugs are made with raw fleeces that have been procured from American small farms. “These are generally family run farms that have dedicated their lives to ancient traditions of nurturing and raising sheep and other farm animals as their lives passion,” says Kathy. “Many are considered rare breeds that are making a comeback in the American culture.” Kathy finds a raw beauty in these fleeces. “Once you have touched and sensed these animals’ gift of fleece, you will be forever changed.” And she says, she’s finding that cats really love wool, to the point where she says “I am beginning to believe it is instinctual.”

The rug measures 30 inches x 22 inches. The rugs are easy to care for: simply shake our regularly, and spot clean small stains by dabbing with a soft cloth dipped in hydrogen peroxide. They can be hand washed in cold water. Let them soak in a standard bathtub, then massage the fibers, and if needed, use shampoo to clean. Then simply drain the tub, fold the rug and press out any remaining water. The rugs can be machine washed on the gently cycle but shouldn’t be run through the spin cycle. Dry flat on toweling.

    Because our Merlin might stay at home curled up on this mat instead of going out and about, and letting the neighborhood bully cat keep beating him up

    I bet foster kittens would love that.

    Btw, WraptCats facebook page is not a page.. I could not like it, nor could I add it as a friend.. I think it needs some TLC from someone to make that a little more user friendly.

    for the first time in 25+ years of inside only cats, we had a flea issue this summer! No idea how that started! it became very expensive treating, cleaning what we could & getting rid of them. The poor things had not dealt fleas since they were babies 3-13 years ago!! They were extremely sad & miserable! Many items had to go! Must now replace! This would be purrfect! Please pick us! Please pick us!! Thank you!!

    We have hard wood floors which get cold during the winter, so it would be lovely to have something warm for my cats to lay on. I know that they would appreciate it.

    I have gone to fiber festivals in my area (I’m a knitter). I have watched shearing and they have given away, in small clumps, alpaca fur. My cats just love lovin’ on it! This would be the ultimate resting place for them πŸ™‚

    Having three cats I think there will be a little competition for such a luxury! But I think Coco, who is the oldest, would be the first in the queue for comfort and warmth. She would not want to move!

    I would love this for my 17 year old cat, Mortimer, who has recently discovered a new lease of life after moving to the middle of the countryside. He is so busy catching rabbits at dawn and dusk that he really needs something comfy to curl up on in between!

    We have 2 special needs cats in home, and this would make a furrtastic place to sleep. Want to start fostering, but don’t have enough items to go around when the time comes. This would make the purrfect bed as well for foster kitties to feel comfortable in a new setting! Also, you cannot help but love the care that is taken getting the fur, it’s from family run farms, and ecologically made!
