Under-the-Bed Troubles

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Ok. Izzie finally stopped her obsession with digging the dirt from my potted plants. However, I really don't like her new obsession. Izzie only started this obsession AFTER the Kitties Behaving Badly contest!!! Anyone else's underside of the bed been victimized by their cat?

hey that looks like my bed! every cat i've ever had has done that...my husband used a staple gun, and some vinyl and recovered it so it wasn't so easy to tear up, now they can't shred it...

I had to replace my bed because our 20lb male used it as a secret hidaway tunnel nest

Yesterday when I was laying on the bed, I heard rumbling under the bed. I immediately yelled "Izzie. You stop that now". I looked under the bed, but there was no cat under there. Then, I noticed movement under the fabric that was still attach to the bed. Out crawled Charlotte looking sooo guilty!!! I did apologize to Izzie for yelling at her. I had blamed the wrong cat this time!

When we took the bed out to dispose of it, there was 7" hole on the side and I could look inside and see tunnels where he had pressed, smashed and yank the filling out. Every now and then while laying on the bed, I could feel this *BUMP* BUMP* underneath me..goofy cat

He did it to the boxspring...and I didn't really care too much because it was an old bed...good thing he hasn't tried it with the new one!

Looks like my bed, and under some of the dining room chairs. I wouldn't be surprised if the sofa looks that way too.

Do cats go to some school before they are born & learn how to to that?
Sadie ripped a hole in mine. It was her den.
I finally gave up & cut it off.
I have a naked box spring now.
PS...Nice Shoe.

Ummm....I can just see the water gushing onto your floor now!! This weekend when my boyfriend comes to visit, I will have him help me lift the box spring and I will place a tarp there to help protect it. I've had a tarp laying in my livingroom for 2 years and now it might finally have a purpose!!!

I'm glad someone liked my "shoe". I'm surprised no one noticed my lovely crinkled up carpet!!!

Have to add, you may want to think twice about the tarp...the crinkly noise, drives our cats nuts and THEY LOVE it..plus, I have to say, under your bed is sooooo clean...

I pull out mine and it is a perfect rectangle of missing socks and legos

The tarp I have is not plastic. It's made of heavy canvas material. As you can see, it's serving a purpose under the table..NOT!!!

I've never had water on my floor. And we always have cats on our bed. The only thing you need to be careful of is not to let them see the mattress naked, cuz then they see the bubbles and want to chase them. Other than that, not a problem -- the bedclothes are more than enough protection. They just don't get to help when I'm changing the sheets

I have a futon bunkbed that I sleep on and a certain half-kid I think tore my mattress.or it could've been my kid too.

Ooooops Thank goodness my two can't fit underneath my bed or that would be mine
post #23 of 29
YES!

my previous cat (before marsh).. she used to shred the underside of the bed, rolling on her back and moving forward with her paws..
post #24 of 29
Chloe has just recently discovered the joys of tearing up the underside of the bed. Unfortunately she likes to do it around 3 AM.
post #25 of 29
My rats ruined my old bed by doing that!
post #26 of 29
Oh, man that takes me back! When I was growing up ALL the beds had shredded undersides LOL! For some reason my Coons have never gotten into doing that. Shado(RB), though, she was small and would squirm in there and I was always afraid she'd be in there at some point when I would just plunk myself down on the bed and smush her. Never happened, though, thank goodness!

YUP, Pepper would hide in the box springs. It really made me nervous so I got some THIN wood panels and placed on the bed then the box springs on top of the wood panels so now the cats can't get into the box springs!

Good luck..
