Back in December, a small business called Beyond Cat Store contacted me on Instagram and offered to let me have anything in their online shop free of charge, and no obligation! The banana boat cat bed looked cool, so I asked for that. It arrived on Christmas Eve. Once my human opened the package, however, there was one problem.
It was a little too small!
Okay, it was totally too small. I later found out that it was mostly a kitten bed. In case you are wondering, the dimensions are 21″x8″x6″.
At first I was a little flummoxed about the bed being too small for me to curl up in.
But guess what? I found the perfect use for it! When my human pulls out my interactive cat toys, this is where I put them after I catch them! The first time I did that, she thought it was just a one-off sort of thing. In fact, she thought it was funny because it was so untypically cat-like of me. But I actually do it pretty often! It’s part of the game now.
Even though I can’t sleep in it, I still love my banana boat cat bed! I play with it and make up my own games with it. So I’m happy the Beyond Cat Store humans offered it to me!

That must be small if you don’t fit in it. Whoa! Be thankful that it doesn’t smell like a banana. Those are nasty.
Catherine Lingg says
That’s too bad Summer. You’re a wee one. Guess they should have been more specific. Toy box works

That is cute. I would fill it with nip and turn it into a giant nip nanner. 🙂

We’re glad you found a use for the banana boat, even though it’s too small to sleep in! The manufacturers have a strange idea of the size of a cat!

ooopps!! Guess they didn’t think to measure an adult cat, right? Glad you got creative with using it Summer
Pat K says
If any kitten friends come to visit maybe they can
use it. Otherwise, using if for storage is a good idea.

That would have been a nice one if it had grown a little more!
What a perfect use for your new bed!
That bed is cute, and it makes a fun toy box too. You’re such a smart kitty to find a new use for it.

It looked so comfy too

That looks like a lovely bed so it is a pity it is too small. It would have been ideal for Kit as she was tiny at between 5 and 6 pounds. I am glad you have found the way you want to use it though.
That would be a nice bed for Rosie she is very small for an adult cat and often people think she is a teenager and will still grow, but I think even for her the bed would be a bit small. I like the idea to sleep in a banana and for Rosie it would fit perfectly to her fur !
