More Top Picks & Recommendations

When it comes to cat beds, there's nothing more stylish or more luxurious than a cat couch. Unlike other cat furniture, cat couches won't distract from your home decor while still providing a comfortable place for your kitty to curl up in.

To help you find the perfect cat couch for your furry friend, we've rounded up the best cat couches on the market today.

What to Look for in a Cat Couch:

When shopping to find the right cat couch for your furry friend, here are a few things to consider while you shop:

Materials Are Easy to Clean

For easy cleaning, look for couches with a removable cover that's machine washable. Not only will it keep the bed in tip-top shape, but it'll also help reduce pet dander and hair.

Aside from being easy to clean, also consider what your cat likes. While some cats love the velvety texture, others like cardboard that they can scratch on. Regardless, feel free to pick a material your cat loves to encourage them to use it.

Style Compliments Your Home Decor

Plenty of couches on the market are both stylish and functional, so opt for a bed in color and material that compliment your home decor.

Plush Cushion for Maximum Comfort

The whole purpose of a cat couch is to provide your kitty with a comfortable place to sleep. Stick to beds with thick padding and plush cushions.

One Cat vs. Two Cats

If you have more than one cat or other pet, you may want to consider getting a bed that's a bit larger to give them adequate room to snuggle and play.

Scratcher vs. Bed

While most pet beds are designed solely for napping and lounging, some beds come with a built-in scratcher. These scratching beds are a great choice if your cats love to scratch on your actual sofa.

Budget

While there are plenty of budget-friendly options out there, you'll need to weigh the product's price to the quality of its materials. Trust us; it's worth it to spend a bit more on a product that will last for years to come.
