When the folks at Sumo Urban Lounge Gear contacted me to see if I wanted to test one of their awesome beanbags, I immediately spotted their Otto model because it’s the perfect size for a cat. Designed to serve as an ottoman, or as extra seating, this little beanbag has proven to be a cat magnet. The second it came out of the box, everyone lined-up to take their turn. Luckily I had the camera ready!
Ando was (of course) the first to try it out. He quickly realized that it conforms to his body shape and he settled right in. I though he would jump down, but there he stayed. When he finally left the Otto, I noticed that the foam beans retain body heat quite nicely. Of course he liked it — it’s toasty warm and super comfy!
Theo gave it a test, then MacKenzie took over and curled up into a fuzzy cat ball for a nice nap. It’s the perfect size (about 19.5 inches in diameter) and just the right height (about 15 inches tall) to keep kitty up off the floor so she can survey the room, and swat at passers by.
The best part is the fabric. It comes in a variety of bold colors and it appears to be bullet-proof. Seriously, this fabric can withstand anything! And all you have to do to clean it is wipe it down with soapy water.
Sumo Lounge makes all kinds of other shapes and sizes of beanbags, all of which I’m sure would be a hit with the kitties. Heck, I’m thinking about getting rid of all my furniture and filling my whole condo with these!
