Good For Any Use

The Cat Ball Cat Cave Bed is good for night lounging, which Woodrow can attest to.

And grooming, which Sophie demonstrates.

And of course for holiday photos. Here’s Sophie from Thanksgiving in her festive bow tie that she stole from Eddie (our dog).

Out of all the cats, Sophie uses the bed the most. Its permanent place is next to our fireplace, which allows her the perfect view of the entire living room. When Sophie doesn’t feel like napping or lounging and happens to be doing her rounds through the living room, sometimes she’ll walk in the front opening of the Cat Ball and out the back – just because she can. It’s pretty cute (just like she is).

About The Cat Ball Cat Cave Bed

The Cat Ball Cat Cave Bed is the company’s original design. Its hexagonal shape is fun for cats to peek out of from the front or the back opening. The bed is created with six panels and is flexible and machine washable. The bed’s features are:

  • Made in the USA
  • All cotton fabrics
  • Fits cats up to about 18 pounds
  • The innovative hexagonal cat bed design holds its own shape: no wires!

The Cat Ball Cat Cave Bed that we received was priced at $55.00. However, prices vary by design and fabric choice. But good news, we have a 20% off discount code for readers (details below). Visit their online shop to see all of their design and fabric choices.

About The Cat Ball

The Cat Ball Logo

The Cat Ball came about when founder Jennifer Boaro, a costume designer, was hired to design a soccer ball-shaped (human-sized) mascot costume for a professional athletic team. Jennifer went to work on a small-scale model and formed the spherical-shaped costume that had a small hole at the top for the mascot’s head and a bigger hole on the bottom for the legs.

Jennifer says, “I completed the project and the small prototype sat in my workshop for a year or two until it occurred to me that my new kittens might enjoy it. And I was right; they loved it!”

Thus, The Cat Ball was born! Jennifer creates these handmade beds and has expanded from the original Cat Ball® cat cave bed design to include the Cat Canoe® cat bed, the Jumbo Cat Canoe® and novelty variations like their shark Cat Ball® cat bed. Browse their online shop to see all of the unique designs.

Retro and Tink from The Cat Ball

Everyone knows that behind every great cat company founder is an awesome cat – or two. Jennifer’s models and product testers are Retro (left) and Tink (right). Both are cross-eyed lynx point cats. Jennifer says, “Tink is the cat you see in most of our photos, she’s really small, like 7.5 pounds, and she’s a reliable cat bed model. Retro is big, he weighs 15 pounds, and he hides under the bed when anyone comes over.”

    1. I never realized how big Teddy was until you mentioned it earlier. He’s such a big (lovable) boy! Giving him a BIG long-distance hug!

    2. Pam, If you are the winner, so ahead and give it a try with Teddy. We’ve honestly seen big cats using this bed, and we’ve seen two cats using it, so their combined weight met or exceeded his.

  1. They are great! An entrance and exit! A tunnel or cave or collapse for a bed! Machine washable! A purrfect cat bed! Woohoo!

  2. I think my cat would like this very much. I also love that it comes in different fabrics. Too bad my three favs (black velvet, brown, and snowball) are sold out.

  3. Oh, my cats would LOVE this! My Kotoha loves finding places to curl up when she wants to nap and this would give her a place of her own.

  4. Such a unique design! All the other products on the website are great, too! I really like how the hexagonal design holds its shape. Casper loves lounging in caves instead of beds. I think he may enjoy this cute ball :)

  5. This is perfect! I’ve been searching for a cozy ‘enclosed’ style kitty bed/spot the past week for my CH senior girl Lillia. It’s getting chilly and she’s always preferred hideaway styles since she was a kitten. Being a wobbly cat I think she feels safe and secure. What fun too, she may be 13but she’s going strong!

  6. These are fantastic beds! The cats love them (even though my cats use their Cat Ball cat beds *their* way!) And they stand up to use and washing incredibly well. Love them in the sanctuary adoption room for shy cats there.

  7. I think our cat, Fritz, would love this, as he likes to snuggle up in blankets and clothing items to sleep.

  8. This looks great! Big enough for most any position that a cat could put themselves into, and very warm and a great place to hide. This would be great! Thank you for having all of your giveaways!

  9. My kitty wants the chance to figure it out! Put her in coach. She’ll own that Cat Ball! MVP-Most Valuable Purrer

  10. I’m sure Piggles, One-Eyed Pete and the rest of the itty bitty kitty crew would all be fighting over whose turn it is, or the smaller guys would share.

  11. The catball is the best ever!! And the Catball Lady is the best too!! Catballs are made extremely well and are super comfy! if you don’t win make your Meowmie buy you one!! You’ll love it forever! I have one and love it but I could always use another!!💜💜💜💜

  12. Your kitties look like they really loved the cat ball cave :) I love the pics <3 My cats would really enjoy it too I think.

  13. This is too cute! The very first photo of Sophie with her lil head poking out the smaller hole is my favorite 😍

  14. Retro and Think sure have pretty coats and eyes. Oh, I think any pussycat would luv a cat ball bed. I could totally see my furr-iend Bear Cat in a shark ball! Tee hee hee.

  15. i dont have cats, so i would donate to safe haven for cats. however, i think my dogs would love this, but they dont need it, so it would go to safe haven for cats. i donate on a reg basis. they also have a big event coming up, which they can auction off many of the things i win that i dont need or use.

  16. My cat would love this! I like all of the fabric options. My kids really love the shark one since they are into baby shark right now. Good luck everyone!

  17. My cat Dez would love this. She not much of a cuddler, but likes to snuggle in her own special spot in the same room as us.
