Do you have any tips on choosing a cat bed? Cats like to be warm and often want to curl up in a confined space – like the cat bed – because it preserves body heat. Cats can get heat strokes jut like humans and other pets, but the average cat likes warmer temperatures than dogs and people. A cat can be comfortable in temperatures between 85 and 90 degrees. Most homes keep lower temperatures than the cat’s preferred climate, and a good cat bed helps keep kitty comfortable. Many cats like having a small bed, because curling up helps keep them warm.
