12 Days of Giveaways is almost over, but we have another great giveaway for you today! Day 11 is presented by Sleepypod, a company that makes stylish, luxury pet beds and carriers that are crash-tested for safety. We received a Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed to try out. Which cat do you think took it over? Let’s find out!
Style and Sophistication
Those are two words that don’t describe me, much to my cats’ chagrin (well, at least Olive’s). But just because those words don’t apply to me doesn’t mean that the cats should suffer, right? When we received the Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed (in Robin Egg Blue), it was clear that the pet bed is in a class of its own. Beautiful, durable and most importantly a safe carrier for the cats! Let’s see what they thought of it.
The Investigation Begins
Here’s what the pet bed looks like with its mesh carrier lid closed.
…and here it is zipped open.
I thought that surely the cats wouldn’t climb into the carrier with the mesh lid on, even thought it’s zipped open. Silly human.
Sophie: Hmmm, what’s dis?
Olive: It’s a Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed, Sophie. Geez, don’t you recognize class when you see it?
Sophie: Let me take a closer look. Uh, yeah, I see what you’re talking about. Class. Um, I totally see it in here. (whispering) Mama, what’s class?
Olive: This is class, Sophie.
Sophie: I still don’t get it. It looks like a pet bed to me. A superty-duperty cool one. But I don’t get this class thing.
Olive: I think I’m getting a migraine.
The Sleep Test
Looks like the Sleepypod gets good marks from Sophie and Olive. But will it actually serve as a place to sleep? Let’s see what Dexter has to say about that.
Dexter: Let me check this out, Mama.
Dexter: Oh, yeah. This feels nice.
Dexter: Yeah, really nice. I’m getting a little sleepy in this pod. Get it, Mama?
Mama: And…he’s out.
Dexter stayed there all night after first trying it out. Here’s a grainy shot I took later that evening (I didn’t want to turn on the light and disturb him).
Dexter: Leave me be, Mama!
It seems like Dexter has taken over the Sleepypod, but it actually belongs to someone else.
Olive Claims the Sleepypod
The Sleepypod stays behind our couch on a table in the living room. And many evenings, Olive can be found snoozing away in it.
Olive: Don’t come one step closer with that camera, human! I’m relaxing.
Olive: Mama, I said not one step closer!
A Pet Carrier Designed with Safety In Mind
While Olive uses the Sleepypod as a bed, it’s also a pet carrier. Since we’ve had it, we haven’t needed to take a trip to the vet. But when we do, I’ll have peace of mind knowing that the cats will be safe in the car while riding in the Sleepypod.

The Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed (as do all of the Sleepypod carriers) include their Pet Passenger Restraint System (PPRS), which is “a safety system designed by Sleepypod to secure a pet in a vehicle and restrict harmful movement resulting from a sudden vehicle stop or frontal collision.”
