BlanCat, a super soft blanket that doubles as a cat bed? Yes, please, said Allegra and Ruby!
What is BlanCat?
BlanCat is specficially designed to stimulate your cat’s natural kneading response. While there are several theories as to why cats do this, the most common explanation is that cats learn to knead as kittens when they paw on their mother’s belly to stimulate milk flow. Many adult cats continue to do this all their lives, often purring and drooling while “blancatting”. Kneading can also serve as a self-soothing behavior.
The BlanCat design is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. It features a thick ring that’s about 16 inches in diameter. The super soft fabric is attached to the ring. The design allows for BlanCat to be used as a blanket or a bed.
Putting BlanCat to the test
Allegra and Ruby were immediately intrigued with the BlanCat.
A few minutes after I put it on the floor, Allegra demonstrated proper “blancatting” technique.
I know it’s not the most exciting video ever, but I actually find it extremely relaxing watching her do this!
Later that afternoon and evening, Allegra claimed the BlanCat as her new bed.
The following morning, Ruby decided that it was her turn. She couldn’t make up her mind whether the BlanCat was best used as a blanket or as a bed. She thinks both configurations make an excellent napping spot.
The only problem I see with BlanCat is that I’ll probably end up having to get a second one…
