Although your furry family members have four legs, they’re as much a part of the family as you are. This means they need their own space to thrive! We’re not suggesting you dedicate a whole room to your furballs, rather, we think creating special areas of the house they can call their own is a great idea.

Finding the right accessories to accompany this space can sometimes be overwhelming and they often aren’t the most aesthetically pleasing items to look at. Never fear, we have some purrfect solutions to help keep your cat happy and comfortable as you share your home with them.

Why do cats need a place that is theirs?

Cats need control over their own personal space to feel secure and safe within the larger home environment. It’s an area they can retreat to and know they won’t be disturbed, allowing them to feel calmer in their day-to-day activities. Ideally, this may have a positive impact on their social interactions with other humans and animals within the home, creating a more harmonious and cohesive environment with the entire family!

There’s sense in scents!

A cat’s sense of smell is the primary way he or she identifies people and objects. Cats have more than 200 million odour sensors in their noses; humans have just 5 million. Studies have suggested a cat’s sense of smell is 14 times better than that of us. Can you imagine how overwhelming that would be?

Due to their sense of smell being so sensitive, it’s important to be aware of things like scented litter, other animal’s smells on you if you visit a friend or an unfamiliar scent in your home (such as a new piece of furniture or a house guest).

Creating their own little space within your family home will allow your fabulous feline to get familiar with what feels safe through their own scent in their designated area. This can help them feel confident enough to venture out in the house when things seems off since they know they always have a place of their own to return if it becomes too much!

Acoustic Cat Haus

Land of Meow - Acoustic Cat Haus With Cat

Environmentally friendly, stylish and the cutest little spot for your furball to find a home in! The Acoustic Cat Haus is true to its name, made from PET acoustic felt which is manufactured from 100% recycled plastic bottles. It has superior acoustic properties, a great insulator and contains no chemical binders. The material is strong yet soft to touch, it does not smell, is hypoallergenic and easy to clean. The acoustic properties ensure your cat will be able to enjoy an environment with a reduction in noise whilst the insulating properties ensure that your cat will be kept cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

It's their very own home within a home.

Perla Cat Cave

Hidden with a view is how we would describe the Perla Cat Cave. This luxury cat bed is braided with a solid, lightfast rope or natural rattan, so your feline can still enjoy watching their surroundings.

The rope braids are composed of special high-quality yarn that maintains a high UV lightfastness and resistance to stains and bacteria, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

This is a great option for cats who are slightly more anxious about not being able to see their humans or enjoy pouncing on what they think is an unsuspecting family member. (Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to see your little hunter ready to attack those toes of yours).

The brilliance of blankets

Blankets, rugs and cushions are great options to create multiple spaces of safety for your cat throughout the home. Naturally, cat beds could cause clutter if found in every room of the house, whereas blankets are a much more flexible item for safety in smaller spaces such as a study or laundry.

Still not sure how you can make your home theirs as well? We’d love to provide some more suggestions from our range of designer cat products. Toys are also a fantastic way to allow cats to move their own scent throughout the house too.
