I'm not really into cat furniture and if you live in a small home it's just impractical. My two cats have a scratching pad (and, a second scratching pad, aka the sofa) and sleep wherever they like, leaving their hair and dander behind in their wake.
I'm drawn to this new product, Cat Crib, which has small homeowners in mind. As you can see, the cradle attaches to chair legs with straps (nothing permanent) and will fit most chairs with enough clearance. Another plus - it's machine washable.
Cat Crib will be out later this summer ($29) but you can reserve yours now if you dig it.
[Editors note: this name of this product has been changed from "Kitty Cradle" to "Cat Crib" which is now reflected in this post]
