It’s inevitable that our feline friends will grow old just like us, and with age comes health problems such as aching joints and stiff muscles. This makes jumping up on a couch or overall movement much more challenging. Orthopedic beds are designed to help alleviate the pain from the pressure points. They are made with a thick base that conforms to your pet’s body. Materials such as memory foam or egg-crate foam are used. The denser the base is, the better support it can give to your pet and the easier it is for your pet to climb in and out of the bed. It should still be soft and comfortable enough to provide a good night’s sleep.
Orthopedic beds are not only beneficial to senior cats but also to injured kitties or pets recovering from an illness. As with all cats, they like to sleep and providing them with a warm and cozy bed is vital to their well-being and recovery.
