Default Death trap dog/cat beds PLEASE READ

The pet bed in this photo is a DEATH TRAP.
Please share this with everyone you know who has a pet.
I purchased this egg-shaped pet bed online for my mom's cat. In spite of the flat bottom of the egg, during the night the egg flipped over onto it's face with the cat inside (he was a full-grown large cat). Because there were no air holes in the egg and the opening was flush to the floor the cat suffocated and died a horrible death within hours. We discovered his body the next morning. His face and paws were bloody from trying to escape. This bed is a death trap. If you have one - DRILL AIR HOLES in it immediately. Personally I would cut it in half and throw it away. We are traumatized.

I would certainly have notified the manufacturer of this bed. They should know immediately. If it happened to one animal, then certainly it could happen again.

That is horrible! I am sorry for your friends loss.

I couldn't decide if I loved those type of beds or not so I never ordered one. I am glad now that I didn't.

I agree the manufacturer should be notified.

Wow. Hopefully the company will make changes to the opening so this will never happen again. So sorry that happened to your friend's cat. Terrible.
