A few weeks ago The Island Cats’ blog had a review and giveaway of some Petmate products designed by Jackson Galaxy, the star of the Animal Planet show, “My Cat From Hell.”
To my surprise, we were lucky enough to win. I got to choose between the “Comfy Clamshell Bed” and “The Vault Marinator,” which is used to freshen up catnip toys. I thought the clamshell bed would be a great addition to our house so I chose that.
It was waiting at the door when I got home from work the other day The box was way bigger than expected, which was fine because . . . well, we have cats.
Once I opened the box and took out the clamshell bed, the cats were torn between investigating the bed and the empty box.
The bed seems to be of a high quality and the fabric is very soft. Chris especially likes it, as you can see from the video.
A pull of the strings easily turns it into a clamshell.
The bad thing about that is there is only room for one.
That means someone has to wait, whether they want to not.
Floki and Chris were the most interested but Chris was the first to use it for what it was meant for, to lie in. Of course, he had to make some biscuits before doing that.
Floki was more interested in the strings.
I didn’t know this at the time but there is a pocket to put the strings to keep them from becoming toys, possibly dangerous toys.
I ended up putting the bed in its open position on our coffee table. Frankie, Floki and Puck mostly ignore it but Chris loves it. I see him on it often. He is on it as I write this.
Meanwhile, in the cats’ room . . .
