Blue Whale Cave
This is no killer whale, it’s your furbaby’s new best friend. The roomy interior is a fantastic space for your cat to stretch out and lounge the day away. Approximately 22″ long, 14″ wide and 10″ high, this is a great cave for pets up to 16 lbs, or a couple of little ones who like to snuggle up together.
Handmade by women in Nepal. Using a technique called wt-felting, the only materials used in the making of these items are pure wool, natural soap, and water. Safe, non-toxic dyes are used on the Himalayan wool. The wool is not chemically cleansed, so it has a lot of lanolin in it. Lanolin is the natural oil unique to sheep's wool and it reminds cats of the scent of their mother. Lanolin oil conditions their paws and helps keep their fur healthy and shiny.
The lanolin is also anti-microbial and odor-resistant which keeps these cat beds naturally clean. They can be vacuumed or spot cleaned with a sponge. If a bed becomes very soiled, turn it inside out and wash it in a delicate cycle on a washing machine. Let air dry.
