Lots of ideas for cute pet comfyness. This is an alternative to the traditional crate. The wire doors slide into the wall. Really beautiful. This site also includes minor changes to your decor for dog beds & modifying childrens chairs into a raised feeding station.
I like the idea of putting the pet bed inside a piece of furniture. They get to stay with the family while keeping the bed out of the way. I would use this idea with a coffee table or side table to keep my cats in the living room.
