There’s something laying on the floor or chair, it seems to be very inviting for a cat to lay on. Bastille’s bed is one of those items that cat’s love to curl up on. Actually it’s perfect! It can withstand teeth and claw marks without snagging or tearing, it’s machine washable & dryable [note: this means you need to felt it to the max so it doesn’t shrink more later]. This bed mat is also a perfect project to create for animal shelters--it gives comfort to the animals as they wait for adoption. Project is in two sizes cat/small dog: 17” x 15 ½” and medium/large dog: 30” x 25 ½”.
