NestEgg for Cats

We talked about "catifying" our home recently and one way to meet the needs of both felines and humans is to find furniture that is functional for cats and pleasing to the eye for humans.

A new company we are pleased to share items from is Hauspanther®. Hauspanther features contemporary furniture for cats that enhances your home that is manufactured from Primetime Petz®. We featured the Hauspanther MaxScratch Oversized Cat Scratching Post & Perch by Primetime Petz earlier this month. We have another exciting piece of furniture to share with you - the Hauspanther NestEgg Raised Cat Bed & Side Table by Primetime Petz.

Hauspanther NestEgg Raised Bed & Side Table

I originally saw the Hauspanther NestEgg at Global Pet Expo in 2018 and in emails from Kate Benjamin (owner of Hauspanther). What drew me to the NestEgg was the clear bowl in the middle of the side table. I remember when my cats were smaller how much they enjoyed sleeping in the sink and thought this would be a great idea for cats. Kate has shared photos of her wonderful cats inside the bowl. The NestEgg is a unique raised cat bed with a clear plastic lounge pod that stimulates the feeling of a sink. The side table features a sleek mid-century modern look with hairpin legs and doubles as a side table, so your cat can lounge close by. The NestEgg is available in a black or white table top.

The NestEgg was designed to create the same feeling cats get when they sit in sinks. It also meets the needs of cats who are more tree dwellers because the furniture is 16" off the ground. The NestEgg can accommodate numerous functions including toy storage, cat grass planter, beverage server, ice bucket, or candy dish!

Our Review

The NestEgg was extremely easy to put together and took less than 30 minutes. Truffle and Brulee were very curious about the table, but didn't jump onto it like I expected. I tempted them with treats on the table in inside the pod. They tried to get to the treats in the pod, but couldn't figure out that they needed to jump on the table to get inside the pod. I even placed them on the table, but they immediately jumped off. I don't know if it was the texture of the table top or that the pod threw off their vision. I've had the table in the living room for about 3 weeks and the girls are still showing no interest in getting on the table or inside the pod.

However, I've decided to use the NestEgg as a place to put their toys (so they will be out of the way) temporarily and as a table where visitors can place their drinks. I had a friend visit recently and she looked at the NestEgg and made the comment, "I love that! Where can I get one?" Cindy doesn't even own a cat, but loved the design of the table and wanted one for her home. The NestEgg is a beautiful piece of furniture. Hauspanther even recommended the pod could be filled with ice and used as a beverage holder when there are guests. Even though my cats aren't using it like I expected, it is a great addition to my home that definitely has a function. Everyone knows that I'll probably turn around one day and one of my cats will be sleeping in the pod!!!

  1. While this isn't really the style we have in our almost 100-year-old house, my human LOVES the idea of using the middle for chilled splits of champagne for a party! So I just had to enter.

    P.S. My preferred sleeping spot is by the leaded glass doors to the back patio, so I can watch the birds and squirrels.

  2. I've had new furniture that took months for the cats to finally 'approve', then I couldn't get them off of it.

  3. Luna Belle, like most distinguished felines, prefers to sleep wherever she pleases lol.

  4. I can't enter, but I love that table. It might work for coraling all the cat toys all over the floor. Will check it out for sure....

  5. Maybe they are testing out the pod late at nighttime when you are sound asleep, Miss Paula. If they aren't using it yet, though, I bet they will soon. Purrs.

  6. Dang, 15 pounds sure leaves me out but it's pretty cool looking.

  7. My 3 cats like to sleep in many different areas. Julius, she loves to sleep in my bed, next to me or on me. She also loves sleeping in boxes. Diego loves sleeping on his cat furniture and Charlie loves sleeping in sinks and blankets.

  8. Oh my gosh. This is an incredible table! My cat sleeps everywhere and no place is safe from a snooze.

  9. That is so cool! My cats sleep everywhere- on the bed, couch, cat houses, my head :)

  10. Loki likes to sleep either on top of the shelf or on the dresser. LBK likes to sleep on the back of a comfy chair.

  11. Usually in my lap! LOL!

  12. Isn't this just SO stylish!! perfect for Persias who have a lot of style!

    Merry Christmas to the three of you and we hope you had the best of days.

  13. What a wonderful clever design and that it is versatile is even better.

  14. It is pretty cool looking!

    I like sleeping EVERYWHERE - some of my favorite spots are the back of the couch, the bed, my basket (it wuz a Harry and David basket made into a cat bed), my cat tree, and under the glass animal case.

  15. Whoa, that's a really nifty table! I love Hauspanther!

  16. The cat likes to sleep on pillows.

  17. I have a bunch of bookmarks for “cat furniture that isn’t ugly” I really like the idea Hauspanther has where it is made to meet cat needs in a way that works for the humans too. The modern vibe isn’t my favorite but I bet Shadow would love this.

  18. Nala sleeps in her small kitty bed, I'm sure she would enjoy this!

  19. Awee This would be perfect for smokey :) He loves to sleep everywhere. His fav nap time place is behind my head on the couch it is adorable <3

  20. I have shelves and boxes on a wall they love sleeping in the boxes up high
