I was initially very disappointed in this product because the hood part has no structure and does not stay up as the picture shows. I bought it specifically for one of my cats who enjoys the "caves" I make for her out of blankets but is not a burrower. I decided to try modifying it using some stiff plastic tubing that was leftover from another project. This tubing is labeled SDR9 PEX 3006 (O.D. is approx 3/8") purchased from a home improvement store in the plumbing/pipe area. I ripped the seams about 1/2" where the beige velour channel of the hood front meets the bed on both sides, then fed a 32" piece of the tube through the channel. Now it stays up perfectly and two of my cats will fight over who gets to sleep in it! The dip in the front is perfect for paws to hang out of. There's a separate velour/canvas pillow that makes the bed extra soft and cozy. A completely unexpected benefit is the velour catching tons of loose cat fur . I didn't bother to sew up the openings, so the tube can be pulled out when the bed needs washing. By accident my second Armarkat purchase was the Slipper-shaped Mocha Pet Bed (also available here on Overstock), but neither cat is interested in it. So, I'm buying another one 18" Burgundy & Beige Pet Bed today to keep both cats happy.
These are nicely made but the tops are too collapsible. My small dogs ended up laying on the top of the beds unless I opened it up for them. I ended up getting plastic lawn edging and inserting it into the opening for support. Now they work fine and my dogs enjoy them.
My chihuahuas love this bed. I have four of them, ranging from 4lbs - 10lbs. They cuddle and share this bed. I recommend it more than the slipper bed. The opening is the perfect size for them.
If you have a pet that likes to burrow, they will love the bed. Good quality, soft durable fabric, and pleasant color. Worth the purchase!
Quality is very good. I bought my two Yorkies these beds for Christmas. If you have a small dog who gets cold easily, this is a great bed for them. I couldn't keep the top up so I bought some flexible wire rod and cut it to measure then put those plastic end wire protectors from closet systems on them. Problem solved. They love their new beds.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The top kept falling down until I put some wire to hold it up.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good product. Good quality except for the top coming down.
We bought this for our cat. However she decided to take a long absence. In the mean time our little schnauzer/chihuahua mix has flattened the hood and has the most comfy bed in the house. It's very well made and the cushion is superb.
I have for ungrateful cats, who are not wild about each other's company, and don't like to share their sleeping areas with their "roommates." I can never have too many beds & loungers for these fools, and I'm very fond of the Amarkat products, which is why I ordered this. Very popular with my feline pals, there are constant arguments about who gets to use it next. Odder still: I found two cats in one bed the other day, all snuggled up & happy. The bed is easy to clean as well, and travels well. The favourite place for it right now is on top of a heating vent in the laundry room. Ah, bliss. Highly recommended by my cats (and me)!
There is a reason they used a stuff cat in the photo...they probably couldn't find a cat that was willing to sit inside this thing for more than a minute. Very flimsy...the top has no support that it just falls over. The cat went in and the top fell down on it and it flew out never to take a step in again...I wanted a place for my cat to call her own and hide, but this was not the right product to buy.
The inside is very soft as well as the lining seems very warm. The product would be a lot better if the top cover would stay in place and not collapse on the poor animal scaring them off. What's not shown in the picture is that the beige edging is the only way to get this cover to stay up and if that...it only works for so long before it flops back down.
What stops the top from folding down onto the animal? Is there a metal/wood (?) support system going through the top area? It looks kind of floppy to me. Thank you.rhoda1 on May 16, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
