For your domesticated pets, cosy bedding can be made to provide them with a place to sleep or a cushioned bed for them. These can be made to fit the size of the basket or the box to give your pets extra warmth and comfort.
Making bedding for a Cat is fairly straightforward and apart from the occasional paw
padding cats use to get comfortable they should last quite a long time. Cats sometimes need a variety of beds so they can choose where they would like to rest.
I made some for my cats baskets when they were just kittens and they are now 14 years old. Apart from a little colour fading they are still good.
Dog bedding is very different mainly due to the wear or mainly tear these will have to endure. Puppies have sharp teeth, bored dogs chew, and their claws and rip a cushion in half.
With all this in mind your dog still enjoys a comfortable bed to sleep in and if it has other things to bite and chew may leave the bed alone. If not then at least you know that these can be replaced fairly quickly.
Bedding can be made to fit into wicker or plastic beds and if wanted a bought one could always be recovered to suit the colour of the room.
If you are not confident in making them for your pet. The Range has a good supply of animal beds.
Hope you enjoy making some to suit your type of pet.
