Felted Cat Caves: Whimsical Sculpted Cat Bed Ideas

Felted Cat Caves

We have fallen in love with felted cat caves and think you and your cats will too.  These things are flat out amazing.

When it comes to shape or design, because they are shaped from felt, the sky is literally the limit.  Designers can create any hollow shape they can imagine from ultra sleek, modern pod shapes to whimsical elf houses and even critters or monsters!

That means there’s a cat cave that’s right for you no matter what your what your personal style is.

And your cat will love it as much, if not more, than you do.  We can all but guarantee that!

You know how much cats adore boxes, right?  They love sitting in them, sleeping in them, taking baths in them and even playing in them on occasion.

However most of us don’t usually want an ugly box hanging out in the middle of our family rooms.  But you wouldn’t mind a piece of functional textile art, would you?  That’s why felted cat caves like these are win for everyone, including your favorite fur ball.

Felted Cat Caves & Pumpkin Decor

OMG check this out.  It’s a cat hidey hole  shaped like a pumpkin.  Whether you are decorating for fall, Halloween or are simply into pumpkin decor you’ll want to show off this little beauty.

We especially love the attention to detail with the stem, leaves and lifelike tendrils curling on the top of this cat bed.  Who needs to carve a jack-o-lantern when you have real cat eyes staring out of this exceptional bit of textile art?

Handmade Felted Cat Caves Are All The Rage With Elves?

Cats and elves living together?  Is this mass hysteria?  No, it’s a well known “fact” that cat see things we poor humans can’t.

Whether it’s elves and pixie dust or just plain dust we don’t claim to know.  But we can’t help but think that if it IS elves they are seeing they would share space together inside this whimsical felted cat cave.

Or maybe it’s fairies who live here who just happen to invite your cat in for tea?  In any case we can just see their wee eyes peeping out of this amazing cat bed.  Or is it a fairy house?

Who cares what it’s called… it’s a really spiffy bit of cat stuff we are delighted to share with you.

Felted Cat Cave With Ears

Did you know that cats need to sleep 12-14 hours a day?  I bet they’d be cozy and warm all curled up inside a cat cave with ears like this one.

And be honest, would you be able to walk by and not smile when you saw your kitty curled up inside this thing?

DIY Felted Cat Cave Beds

Pod shaped cat beds like this one are made by hand felting wool into a bag shape then filling them with towels, bubble wrap or a balloon for support while drying.

Once the wool drys it holds its shape surprisingly well.  Making your precious kitty a cat cave like this one is a fun diy pet project but be aware it is a ton of work, too.  See the video below if you’d like to try this diy pet project for yourself.

Yawning Cat Cavern Kitties

This delightful cat cave duo brings joy to any room they grace.  Even if you don’t have cats to sleep in them.

They are really a great place for you pet to hide, and as we know some cats can be shy, making these a really useful safe space for them!

I can just imagine a Russian Blue (which, is one of the many cool hypoallergenic cats, might I add) chilling in there, since the tend to be a little more skittish around new people.

As pet beds go… these are, as my daughter would say, “Da Bomb!”

Monster Cat Cave, Felted Teeth And All!

We laughed so hard when we found this “Monster” cat cave.  It is both a bed and a toy too good to be ignored.  What cat could resist swatting around those tendrils?  Truly a work of art and a real conversation starter.  It has us thinking about what we can add “tentacles” to.

Thai Cat Cave House

Gotta say we love the appliqued oriental dragons on the sides of this, round for a reason, cat cave.  The creativity of folks making these functional works of art never ceases to amaze us.

Gonna go out on a limb here and say that anyone with oriental decor in their home will just eat this up.  Yes, that is a gift giving tip 🙂

Fairy House Felted Cat Caves

Hard to tell which is more adorable this fairy house masquerading as a cat cave or the litter of kittens hiding out inside!

Wonder of the elves mind them being there?  Naw… it’s a well known fact that you can never have too many cats.  Besides, how could anyone mind such a passel of cute in their home?

An Onion Cat Cave Bed? Shrek Would Approve.

Donkey may prefer parfaits but in this case we are forced to agree with Shrek… Onions are the way to go.  Especially if they come with such beautiful cats inside them.

Just look at this majestic fellow kicking back in there!  As cat caves go, this “onionesque” one sure has this beautiful kitty chillin.

Psychedelic Felted Cat Caves

A splash of color anyone?  Proving that felted cat caves can be groovy this adorable creation looks like it stepped right out of the 60’s!

I know my age is showing but I could swear my mother had drapes or a bed spread that looked almost exactly like this when I was little.  Perhaps that is where my love for color and bold patterns comes from?

Whimsical Blue Wool Felt Cat Cave

Of all the cat caves we’ve seen so far we have to think Dr. Seuss would love this one made in variegated shades of blue wool the best.  It would fit right in to almost any of his villages, don’t you think?  Maybe this is the kind of cat bed the folks in “Whoville” use?

Pin This For Later

I sure hate it when I find something AWESOME and FORGET to pin the page for later!

By now we’re betting you think these felted cat caves are as freaking AWESOME as we do. “Run-of-the-mill” they are NOT!  These things are all one of a kind and unique because they are all handmade.

They have to be.

And I’m sure you’ve figured out that they make the perfect gift for every cat lover on your list. Whether you are looking for your next diy project or just want to get something special for you home and your amazing cats, you can’t go wrong with a cat cave.
