It finally happened. Gone are the days of “no pets allowed on the couch.” The IKEA company has recently announced plans to start an entire line of furniture inspired by, and built for, your pets. Yes, even your furry friends can enjoy the comfort and ease of having not just furniture that takes into account their size, but also how they sit. IKEA pet furniture was created in junction with veterinarians to create the best couch for your animals.
”When we adopt a dog or any pet, we know it is going to end with us having to say goodbye, but we still do it. And we do it for a very good reason: They bring so much joy and optimism and happiness. They attack every moment of every day with that attitude.” - Bruce Cameron
The IKEA dog couch gets two paws up from these furry companions. Typically designed for smaller dogs, this dog bed can still hold several animals as long as they all tolerate each other. As a bonus feature, if one dog is using it as a bed, it can have therapeutic features for small pups as well.
This IKEA dog bed makes for one happy puppy. Just look at how happy that doggo is! And again it’s completely orthopedic and tailored to a small dog’s body. Best of all, it can be kept in any room in the house if you want.
Your cats are always climbing onto and into places, so why not have a special piece of furniture specifically for that? This cat climbing station is one of the best IKEA pet furniture pieces that the showroom has to offer. Allow your cats to play on something intended for feline use.
Cat End Table
This IKEA pet carrier/end table hybrid is exactly what your cat needs when it wants a little solitude. Cats can sometimes pretend you’re not in the room with them, and this piece is a fine way to keep track of your cat when he’s being moody. In any case, it comes with a soft, plush bedding and a smart cat can close the double door from the inside.
Medium and Large Dogs
Don’t worry, we haven’t forgot about your larger pets. Medium and large sized dogs can also enjoy IKEA pet furniture as much as their smaller companions. It’s just a matter of realigning the bed/couch so that their orthopedic needs are met as well. If you have any questions, staff can help you.
Kitty Tree Furniture
As we previously said before: cats climb. So why not give them this mounted unit that hangs high? Each different “room” in the piece is connected to the others. This is a great piece of IKEA furniture if you have multiple cats who love climbing. It also looks like a stylish piece of modern decor!
