The Pesky Cat's Day Dream


I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle, cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home.

I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it.

My sweet Anni

FOX 5 Update: A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes available.

You have to get the Katzenhohle, it looks like cat heaven!

Mmmm, I wouldn't mind having a yummy porch like the one in the picture (and a sweet cat to nap on it on warm days...)

That cat bed is adorable! I'm sure one of my crew would crawl up and hide in there! Love it.

I am sorry I'm so far behind with your posts. Anni is such a beautiful cat. It makes me happy to know that you found each other in NYC and now Anni lives with you and has the comfy, loving home she deserves!

The Katzenhohle is amazing! It's a perfect cat bed, considering that my cats love to curl up inside of bags and boxes but this bed is much prettier than those things. Will Anni be getting one?
