Googie Cat Bed Giveaway & Shelter Donation!

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, check it out! I'm KING OF TOWNHOUSE!



KATIE:  Well you may be king of the Googie Cat Bed, but the TOWNHOUSE??? I don't think so.

WAFFLES:  Googie? You mean like on the computer and stuff? I don't see a computer. Do you see a computer? 

KATIE:  Not Google, Waffles. GOOGIE. 



WAFFLES:  Ok, Boss. What's your Googie password? You need to login if you're going to come in here.

KATIE:  I'M not sharing my – wait a minute! Waffles, you're being ridiculous. Now don't get too comfortable in there. Remember, we're only test driving this. We're going to be donating it to the shelter cats at Feline Rescue, remember?  

WAFFLES:  Can I go visit it?

KATIE:  You just say the word and I'll call you a cab. I'll even pay your one-way fare.



Introducing the Googie Cat Bed
We first saw this cool bed at BlogPaws in the swanky Hauspanther Cat Lounge. Of course Glogirly is a sucker for anything that looks cool and modern so she was instantly drawn to it. The design is inspired by the Googie style of architecture. Think 1950's coffee shop with those curvy, amoeba-shaped signs and the hip boomerang patterns. Think George Jetson. 



More than Just Hip & Cool
The Googie Cat Bed is much more than a cool looking place to hang out. It's a finely crafted piece of furniture. Incredibly solid construction, NO assembly required by the way, it's made to stand the test of time. The frame is thick and smoothly sanded plywood covered with funky formica. The two ledges are wrapped in a tightly woven carpeting made from 100% post consumer recycled bottles. Padded on the inside, it's cushy comfy and also very roomy. Strongly reinforced, even the plumpest fluffiest of cats can curl up with ease. It comes in three color/pattern combinations.



We TOLD You it's Not Just a Bed!
Waffles put the Googie bed through some rigorous testing. To say he LOVED playing in it is an understatement. Despite the crazed look in his eyes, no treats, catnip or other incentives were involved in the taking of this photograph. Seriously.



Pricing
As we mentioned, the Googie Cat Bed is an extremely well-crafted piece of furniture. It's not made from cardboard and plastic and is therefore an investment. Based on it's quality, we're convinced it will outlive most of the competition. The bed sells for $250.00 and now through August 31, you can get free shipping, valued between $30-60.00, on your order using promo code: googiepaw1048.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I like that it's well crafted and sturdy. Cats can be rough on things.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I think it seems to be a hideaway fort for cats!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I like that it's a hidey place since cats love that so much.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Wow, that has got to be one of the awesomest cat beds I've ever seen!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  13. That looks awesome so stylish and trendy and also multicast could use it at the same time

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like that it has two shelves, so two cats and lay on it at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  15. What a versatile piece of cat furniture! And it looks great right out in the open.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Madison & Simba would love the chance to fight over this totally nifty cat bed! :)

  25. I like that it has two resting spots, perfect for my two indoor kitties!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Georgie would like the second level so he can attack Sniper without Sniper knowing in advance. Harper would like the top level so she can survey her minions from a lofty (to her anyway) height.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Was really happy to see this review. I love the Davies Decor cat products and actually interviewed Tom Davies on my radio show. The Googie Bed and Post and Beam Cat House are such beautiful pieces of furniture and so stylish, they're more like art. And, Waffles looks like he knows a good thing when he see one!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Abby says, Yes please!
    We like the modern design. Super cool!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like that more than one kitty can sit on it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  33. Meowm remembers seeing this bed at Blogpaws in the Hauspanther lounge. And if Waffles loves it, we bet we will too!

    ReplyDelete
  34. It is a bed, a scratcher and a bunch of fun by the looks of it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Whoa! That’s a fancy smancy piece of cat furniture. I’d love one. Pretty please with a bribe on top.

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is great...... a bed, a scratcher oh my. This looks like so much fun and the color. I gotta get one of these for my 2 furbabies. Hope I win this.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I like how cute Waffles looks in the bed.

    Hi Waffles!

    ReplyDelete
  38. If I win it it would be cooler than my box(es) Mommy says. There is no hope of buying one, cause we don't have green papers for such things. I don't have a cat tree (heights aren't my thing, I'm a down to the earth kind of cat) and this would be perfect. And sturdy. Mommy likes that, too.
    Good luck to everyone.
    And thanks for thinking of my friends at Feline Rescue. Wait. My friends should be gone to their furever homes! Well, the volunteers are friends, too!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Just seeing the photos of Waffles enjoying this bed gives it a glowing recommendation. We know the shelter is really going to enjoy having that. Very generous thing to do. We had a comment on our blogoversary post saying you put up a link to us. We assume it was on Facebook. Thank you so much. You are such a good furiend. At last check we had 75 comments, which really blows us away. Thanks too for visiting on our 2nd blogoversary to celebrate with us!

  40. So cool! Thanks for the giveaway.

  41. You can never have enough cat beds, especially in a house with three cats. I like that it's double decker. I'll take the top bunk!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Are you sure you won't need another bed for Waffles?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank you, Waffles, for all of your hard work to make this bed safe and comfy for the shelter cats. I can see that it will need to go in the suite with the most orange folks, since you've decorated it with your lovely fur. We have Ari, about twice your size, and Ginger Snap, a one-eyed speeding bullet, just waiting for it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. That is the absolute coolest things ever! We love it! We're crossing all our paws and even our tails!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow, a bed that's cozy AND fun! The best of both worlds.

    ReplyDelete
  47. That really does look like a fun place to play to snooze!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love that it's made of recycled materials, and good for scratching too!

    ReplyDelete
  49. A bed AND a play tree - that can survive Waffles! What a pawsome design.

    ReplyDelete
  50. OMC! That looks like 2 cats might even be able share it. With 4 cats in the house, it would sure come in handy.

  52. Waffles, you make that bed look like so much fun when it's turned on its side!

    ReplyDelete
  53. That looks lovely. We are sad we cant receive it as we are not in the US but maybe it is for the best as Red would sit on top and poke Magic in the face the way he often does! No wonder he gets hissed at!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I actually like that when you said it is "50s inspired" that that is actually RETRO....I also like that it resembles an old fashioned foot stool...that is a GOOD thing!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Wow, that bed is fantasmical! We would love to win it, so thank you for the opportunity. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like that it has two levels, I have guys that love to be king of the mountain and my girls like to hide and attack. It's a great design-the print reminds me of going to eat with my grandparents when I was little to the town diner. Raine buzzyngabe(at)yahoo.com

  69. With two kitties who love their own place to be I LOVE that there is a spot for both of them. One of our littles is ALL ABOUT scratching his beds so this would be perfect for him. My guys would LOVE this bed and have their paws crossed that they win!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  81. LOVE that it has two levels and is stylish to boot! The two levels and the way it's designed overall looks to invite interactive play as well as nap-time.
