It’s not often that our hearts can handle thinking about the poor animals that are currently surviving in shelter homes around the world.

We’re immediately met with sad thoughts about the cold, hard floors that they rest their lonely bones on. They sit, waiting patiently for each new individual to walk through the door in hopes that they will be leaving with them to start a new life full of love, warmth and happiness.

Of course it’s amazing to know that they have a roof over their heads rather than fighting for their lives on the streets, but it’s definitely not an ideal home for any species.

Etobicoke Humane Society in Ontario is just one of many charitable organisations that has been working hard to care for and look after any animal that arrives at its door.

Until recently, the cats at Etobicoke Humane Society have been sleeping on the “cold, hard floor”, but we’re happy to announce that this is no longer the case. Thanks to IKEA Canada, their bedding has just got a whole lot more comfortable.



IKEA was kind enough to donate 10 doll beds for the cats and made a kind $300 contribution towards creating a brighter future for the shelter and its animals.

“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,” the humane society posted on their Facebook page on Tuesday. “The volunteers and animals thank you. Your generosity is greatly appreciated” they continued.



Unfortunately for pet owners, IKEA doesn’t sell pet furniture as such, but that didn’t stop them getting creative with the Duktig Doll Beds which just so happen to be the perfect size for a kitty.

The company even recently posted a picture of the double decker version of their Duktig Doll Bed – with a cat lying on the top bed and a pug doggie resting on the bottom one.


The beds have proven to be a great place for a cat nap.


Some scaredy cats prefer to hide under the beds.


Catsby is loving his new sleeping arrangements.
