Cats are little princes and princesses who want to be loved and pampered, and they kind of expect to be treated as such.
With so many loving kitties pouring in at animal shelters all over the world, rescuers are overwhelmed and any donated amount goes to provide food, care and shelter to the animals until they can go to a foster home or be adopted and go live at their new forever homes.
Unfortunately, there’s not much left to provide certain luxuries that a house cat would have otherwise. A cat bed doesn’t sound like a luxury, but for shelter cats, it is, since money has to be allocated to care for their basic needs. That’s why local shelters need the local community support.
One company wanting to make a difference in the cat’s lives at the Etobicoke Humane Society in Canada, donated several cat beds to help their stay be more comfortable and memorable.
For the record, Ikea, the Swedish company known for their low-cost design furniture and meatballs, doesn’t sell cat beds but found that many of their customers used the doll beds of their Duktig line of toys used the doll beds as actual beds for their pets, especially for their cats.
Along with the beds, Ikea was very generous and donated $300 dollars to the shelter.
The cats seem to love their new personal beds!

On their Facebook page, the Etobicoke Humane Society shared a cute video of two of their cats available for adoption checking out their new beds, with the caption: “Our floors are easy to clean but not terribly comfortable to lay on. Now cats like Catsby and Frankie have beds of their own to curl up in.”
A HUGE thanks to IKEA Canada, the Etobicoke location for donating these adorable doll beds. Now the cats are elevated off the cold, hard floor. Our floors are easy to clean but not terribly comfortable to lay on. Now cats like Catsby and Frankie have beds of their own to curl up in.Not only did IKEA Canada generously donate 10 Duktig Doll Beds but they were able to give us $300 as well. The volunteers and animals thank you. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.Music credit: http://www.bensound.com

The shelter hopes the cute video and pictures of the animals in their care will be shared to bring awareness to what people can do to support their local animal shelters ,from donating pet food, supplies and volunteering their time. There’s always something that can be done to help them do such amazing work for animals in need.
