Snuggy Luggage Vintage Suitcase Pet Beds-Guest Blog By Haute Or Not Pets

  It wouldn't be the holidays without a unique product (and an adorable one at that!), brought to us by our friends at "Haute Or Not Pets". Cody and I are crazy about these and will let our pals tell you all about them!

Those of you who know the HorN Pets way, know we rarely feature a product we haven't 'sniffed, tasted or peed on', but we had to make an exception for these fantastical, very limited edition, small animal beds...they simply are too HAUTE not to mention.

Does your cat or dog like to jump into your suitcase when you're packing for a trip? Why not give them that chance anytime? Your furry friend will love this custom, upcycled, and one-of-a-kind vintage suitcase bed. Our cat Jamaica loves it.*

A vintage, bright red Starline suitcase has been transformed into a cozy and fashionable pet bed. The custom-made pillow is covered in a durable vintage fabric in a dark navy and white houndstooth pattern and stuffed with fluffy batting. The pillow is removable and machine washable.

The lid is left intact so you can tuck your pet's toys, leashes and other belongings there. The original silk pockets are also still intact in the bottom, providing more storage space. I have also installed a safety hook in the rear of the suitcase to insure the lid does not fall on your furry friend.

The chic wooden legs have been painted a matching white color. Hanging from a decorative lace ribbon is an adorable heart-shaped lock and key charm that your pet will love to attack.

The bed is sturdy and roomy enough for both cats and small dogs. Give your jet-setting pet a place to sleep in style in a SnuggyLuggage suitcase bed.

*Cat not included.

  3. *cat not included..lol!
    Reminds me of a time when I was little. Our old cat had gone missing, and my Dad, having wandered the whole house came into my room. He kicked the old brown suitcase that was lying on the floor out of his way.
    The suitcase went "MEEEOOWW!!"
    "Found him!"

  5. @Hilary I used to think my Bobo was unique too when he would sleep in a little overnight suitcase that I used to have. These were not invented back then. I missed a GOLDEN opportunity! lol. That translates to major FAIL for me! :)

  11. My cats always get on the clothes in the suitcase to give them the furry embellishment.

  12. @Goldie I wish I still had my old suitcases...I bet these are super hard to find! If you make one send us a pic!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow, how cool is that! I likes to gets in the suitcase as well...

  14. @Priscilla...Cody would love one for SURE!! (yesterday he was sleeping on top of Daddy's laptop case...right in the middle of a sunbeam) Daddy wasn't super pleased (fur) but I wouldn't let him move Cody (not TOO spoiled! lol)

    I think Dakota is too big for the suitcase bed...loves his crate so much (he goes in on his own)...he doesn't use any bed I have ever bought him...Cody ends up inheriting them!

  25. I stopped over from the Never Growing Old blog hop and adore the idea for this blog so I am a new follower. I have 3 cats and a corgi and I know they would fight over having their own "travel accommodation". There are more and more hotels accepting pets, how cute would it be to just walk in, open the suitcase and have your best friends abode all set up for them?!?! These are just tooo cute. Thanks!

  35. Although I think my dog might be too big for this,
    I have to share with my cat lover sister! Thanks for the idea!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Now that's a great idea, we're always crawling in those boxes with the handles when they come out!

    ReplyDelete
  37. @The Whiskeratti, they are! It is fun to think of all the custom ways they could be made

  39. I love that! That is the only thing suitcases should be used for!

    ReplyDelete
  40. @Mika great to meet you! Thanks so much for follow and you have a great weekend too!

    @Sparkle I love it! you got that right!!

  41. The Human finds these adorable. Me, I like pretty much anything soft and cozy--though not enclosed, so I'd really have to be SURE that lid would not slam down in the middle of a peaceful snooze. Otherise, very cool!

    ReplyDelete
  42. What a cute idea! Moosey always climbs into my suitcase when I'm packing for a trip. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Pretty! Our cats refuse to use anything designed for cats. It's as though they read the label...

    ReplyDelete
  44. @Spitty good point! I bet it is made so that doesn't happen...that IS a very, very good point!

    @Meowmowmans yes it is so cute! My Bobo always used to do the same. I think most cats are fixated on suitcases (cause they know what they mean! lol)

    @Careers4YourCat "kitty-chic" lol...yes they're "haute!!"

    @Au and Target, soooooo true! It takes Cody at least a YEAR to use anything that I get him to sleep on/in!! I love how you said they "read the label" lol

    ReplyDelete
  45. Well M says she wants one cuz they are so cool looking and much for decorative den my plain ole cat bed, which I never use. What a neat idea.

    ReplyDelete
  46. @Mario you have a very, very smart Mama (which you know!) She is absolutely right! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  47. Those are amazing! Time to visit the thrift store I've got a new project :)

  53. Considering alot of the thrift stores and pawn shops in town seem to have an ungodly amount of suitcases laying around for about $2-5 apeice. I think i'll go pick up a few more then I already have for such a project.
