An 11-Foot Bed: The Solution for When Your 5 Cats & 2 Dogs All Want to Share Your Bed

Do you think the five cats got together and figured out a way to get their humans to accommodate them?

Any cat parent knows that no matter how many comfy cat beds you buy your feline friend, chances are he or she will end up sleeping next to you (or on you) on your bed. Locking them out of your room usually just yields endless meowing until you finally open the door… and they take their place on your bed.

Reddit user Robdogbird and his girlfriend knew that scenario all too well, being the pet parents of five cats and two dogs – all of whom insist on a spot on the bed. Instead of putting all the animals in a room of their own, the couple created an 11-foot bed to fit them all.

Robdogbird explained on Reddit how it was done using a king and full mattress: “We had the king spring mattress and wanted to try the memory foam but they are super expensive so we got full foam mattress. We also needed storage so we skipped bed frame and box spring and framed out storage under it so we lined up height to make them even. The seam is noticeable when you lay across it but not nearly what you would think. Sheets are just one set full and one king, matching if we can find them. The comforters are just two full and cover it perfectly, also nice if she wants covers and I don’t. Option for squishy spring or more firm foam is actually nice option.”

Have you ever embarked on a project to accommodate your cats?
