This is just silly

It’s been a while since we had a cute product on C.O.

TOO LONG in fact! Well, leave it to the Swedes to solve that.

Introducing the most redonkulous cat bed ever:


Kora M., awesome IKEA find, my friennnnn



  1. Caitlin Youngquist says:

    I totally want one of those. Looks just like one of my guys . . . except, of course, for the whole “bed” aspect.

  2. Is it just me, or does it look a little like a Daniel Boone-style hat?

  3. Brandi Lee says:

    My cat Sacha could lay down in this and I would never see him LOL

  4. Maureen G says:

    If I was a cat I would pee on it and walk away.

  5. ShelleyTambo says:

    That looks exactly like my cat, and I’d probably freak out after stepping on it while stumbling to the bathroom at 3am.

  6. shadowsong says:

    It may just be the angle of the photo, but that looks like a rather cranky cat bed. The one that your cat naps in when he wants to say, “I don’t care how cute you think I am, stop waking me up and petting me.!”

  7. Its 35 pounds in the UK – thats $75! Ouch!

  8. This is adorable!!!!!

  9. Marvin's Mama says:

    I wish those were slippers!
    Then I could have cranky feets!
    Le sigh…

  10. luvinmalssomuch says:

    HISS-sterical. That is the cat’s Meowith.

  11. China's Mom says:

    I thought it was absolutely adorable and wanted one until I saw the price tag oon it – $59.99 U.S. pluse S/H etc… Still think it’s cute but will pass on the purchase opportunity!

  12. luvinmalssomuch says:

    Good Grief it’s cute but not for that price. Thanks China’s Mom you saved me from looking it up.

  13. Someone photoshop a kitteh in there…

  14. I want a human-sized one!

  15. I have a li’l black cat – this would turn her into the top cat of Neko Koneko (black cat type)!

  16. I love it! Not that the cats would give it any interest. The hell with them, I will lay in it myself!

  17. LMAO, Maureen has the right idea. I think all three of my cats would do the same. *sniff* *lift leg for proper angle* *walk away and sleep in Mom’s bed*

  18. I lurv it, but it’s 79$ CAN. :((

  19. Looks like a cat-shaped Roomba– a Mewmba?

  20. If I were a cat, I would be totally freaked out by this!

  21. This is me.. dying.. from laughing.. (in my cubicle, by myself, so everyone thinks I’m crazy)

    The tail KILLS me! Every time I look at it, I’m in tears.

  22. Marvin’s Mama, I found some evil-black-cat fuzzy slippers in a shop selling Emily The Strange paraphernalia. They were much cheaper than this awesome but overpriced bed. I mean, IKEA? You can get a whole home office for 89.99 … and they’re charging 59.99 for a CAT BED? Guess they know who the crazy people are, LOL. p.s. Brandi Lee, my cat would disappear in it too. 🙂

  23. I think my cat would spend more time hissing at it than sleeping in it. 🙂

  24. I can’t believe that Ikea has the nerve to charge $20 more for the exact same thing in Canada…something that’s over priced in the US in the first place!! Ikea is usually inexpensive, so it surprised me when I saw the price.

    I actually saw this ages ago and told my friend I’d like to buy it for her black, yellow-eyed kitty. My friend loved it, but told me not to waste my money, as her kitty would just pee on it…lol!

    Either way, if I did buy it, I’d go down to Seattle to do so, since our dollar is almost equal.

  25. Yitzysmommie says:

    Truly Redonkulous! Wish I knew how to sew, my MooCat Yitzy would look hilarious in this.

  26. Shannon Johnson says:

    kitteh bed.

  27. Reminds me of a sting ray, but not the cute baby one posted a while back.

  28. Spooky!

    Not something I want to see at the end of the hallway at 3am!

  29. I prefer the mousie pillow, and it’s only $14.99.
    I’m surprised the cat bed is that pricey. Most of the Ikea stuff like this is dirt cheap; litter boxes for 5$ and cat “tents” for 7$. But, I’m an Ikea junkie.

  30. Fat cat receptacle…lolz

  31. My friends cat is afraid of this bed ;P

  32. Yeah, we thought about buying this the last time we were at IKEA, but then we saw the price.

    However, for $19.99 you can get a sheepskin big enough for a kitty to sleep on. Our tortie loves hers.

  33. oooh I want this one in ceramic as a potty for my baby pleees.

    oh how nice.. u can actually wear it the other way round as a hat… borschtsch

  34. Space Cowgirl says:

    This would be perfect for my black cat Amir, if only he weren’t partial to enclosed spaces! But so cute!

  35. almk: I LOL’d at the mouse sleeping pad! I’m an ikea junkie, too; my new apartment is going to be furnished mostly with ikea.

    My family never bothers to buy bedding for our cats ’cause they always find something around the house that they find quite comfortable and Murphy’s law tells me if we bought something, they wouldn’t sleep on it.

  36. OMG, I love this! And looks just like my Benny:

    Too much $$ though. Luckily Benny and Fatty already have a cat tree AND a nice sheepy-fur bed to sleep in.

  37. Actually, that would make a wonderful dog bed. I would love to see a foo-foo white puppy sleeping in it!

  38. I checked this out on Ikea’s site b/c I just couldn’t believe that price was real, and I found this:
    It’s a replacement pad for it (only $5), but the kicker is the pad has a TAIL. Whyeee? I guess this thing has a complicated pee absorbing construction, hence the higher price.

  39. Christabel says:

    I like how the IKEA website lists it as a “cat/dog bed”. As if any self-respecting dog would sleep in this. HA!

  40. Did anyone else notice that the description included the note that “this product requires assembly”?

    What in the world would you have to assemble?

  41. My rule of thumb is that the cats can’t have more expensive toys or bigger furniture than me.

    And this thing requires assembly? I’ve assembled things from Ikea before. That scares me.

  42. Heh. That looks exactly like my cat Molasses (expression, dent, and all!). I bet if I brought it homw the dog would go completely insane fromt eh horror of it all. (Said dog was terrorised by a pair of gorilla slippers…)

  43. i bought this for my black cat (my husband is going to send in pictures) a few months back. the assembly is putting the cat cover on a foam donut basically. it’s insanely cute. i think that it’s even cuter in person.

  44. thats not silly thats dumb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. Thanks for making me smile, CO, I really needed that.

    Our family dog, a 16-and-a-half black Lab-Golden Retriever mix, had to be put down tonight. We got him when I was in 8th grade, and he lived with my mother these past 8 years. He was a fantastic dog and had a great personality until the end. The family won’t be the same without him.

  46. Aw, Alexis, I’m sorry to hear that. I can’t imagine what a black lab – golden retriever mix would look like, but I bet he was one happy dog!

  47. *hugs to Alexis*

  48. Sorry for the OT-ness, but it just reminded me… you think this is bad… I wanted to buy a Hello Kitty hat for my boyfriend’s kitty, and it cost $160 dollars! Who buys that crap?

  49. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    Who says the Swedes have no sense of humour?

  50. Haha, sense of humor? We are dead serious with this bed!!! 🙂 I wish there were one for my rats, however.
    BÄSTIS means “best friend” if you had wondered!

  51. It looks like a frying pan… or maybe a cartoon cat after he got hit by one… 🙂

  52. Thanks for the good wishes, hery-h and Shaz. (Actually, he looked a like a Golden Retriever, but some of his brothers and sisters had the same long coat in black).

    And thank you to Sophia for the translation. Sometimes I wonder if Ikea words are made up, and I’m happy to be proven wrong!

  53. Hey-h- I thought this was a hat too… All I could hear was John Candy from Uncle Buck saying “this hat, It angers people. I’ll tell you a story about that after school….”

  54. Mats, Sweden says:

    As Sophia said, “Bästis” in “Bästis blond” means best friend (kid language). And “blond” means – blond! IKEA’s policy for naming products is sometimes, well, strange…

  55. Carla Dawson says:

    I think this is really cute bed..but it also scares me….

  56. It’s not a cat, it’s a furry stingray.

  57. It needs ears.

  58. This reminds me of that old cartoon where the bulldog was trying to keep his female owner from knowing that he was hiding a kitten in the house. At one point the kitten got into some flower and he balled it up and pretended it was a powder puff. It looked a lot like this Ikea bed at that point.

  59. acelightning says:

    Any self-respecting cat would quickly destroy the “tail” hanging off of this bed. Other than that, it’s cute. (And I love IKEA – I even have a few leftover hex wrenches in my purse!)

  60. A cat bed??? I want it to be MY bed! SQUEEEEE!
