We got a bed similar to this (ours was blue) for the cat, around Christmas. First, the cat paid no attention to it. Later, he started to notice the bed. I sewed a pillow, and put it in there. (The pillow inside was very weak, and the filling always stayed in one side.) The color was very pretty, and it was easy to clean out all the fur (long haired cat). Eventually, it got old (and I think the cat peed on it) so we threw it out and replaced it. the new one is a lot bigger, and more comfortable for the cat.
