I’ve been admiring felted wool cat caves for a long time, and I was thrilled when the makers of the Meowfia cat caves offered to send a couple of their gorgeous beds to us. I couldn’t wait to see whether Allegra and Ruby would like them.
Each cave is handmade from 100% Merino wool, a soft, lightweight natural fiber. Merino wool is breathable, keeping your cat warm in the winter or cool in warmer weather. The beds are safe and eco-friendly. There are no plastic or other man-made materials used. Merino wool naturally repels odor, dirt and stains. The caves can be hand washed in cold water with a mild detergent designed for wool, and should be air dried. Machine washing is not recommended.
The cat caves are made by Meowfia’s manufacturing partner in Nepal, which helps sustain the families of the workers. The whole structure is molded from a single piece of felted yarn fabric using only soap, water and pressure, so there are no seams. Each bed is unique.
It took about 30 seconds from the time I put the beds on the living room floor for both Allegra and Ruby to crawl into one of the beds. Allegra doesn’t like enclosed spaces, but she occasionally checks the caves out. Ruby, on the other hand, has slept in it every day since we got the beds.
The Meowfia Felted Wool Cat Cave is available from Amazon in light grey and asphalt/aquamarine.

The handsome kitty in these photos is Yura, who has his own Instagram account! He told me he’d love it if you would visit him over there.
