Cat and Dog Bed: The MYLAP™ Pet Bed "Irresistible to your pet's nose and heart" (Give-Away!)

NOT YOUR ORDINARY PET BED!!



I love when I am just browsing on Facebook and I come across a product that entices me enough to contact the owner to see if they would be interested in being featured on our blog. Mind you, it isn't often that a product intrigues me that much to reach out, but in the case of the MYLAP™ Pet Bed, it did! (When I reach out to a company wanting to feature their product, I normally waive my review fee, which in the case of the MYLAP™ Pet Bed I did. I received no financial compensation for this review, just the bed, which Cody ADORES!)

When I had my Angel Bobo, he was the only pet in my home. I was single through much of his life, as a result, when I would leave for work he would be quite lonely. I would leave for work at 7am and often wouldn't return home until 6pm or later. Bobo was an insecure cat and would wait by the window for me for nearly the entire time I was gone. I would try to soothe his worries when leaving for work, or the few times I went out-of-town, by leaving my clothing lying on the bed. I often would find him sleeping on my clothes. 
  • "Senses of familiar touch and smell may help reduce separation anxiety and keep your pet calm."
Bobo was also the type of a cat (even more than Cody is), that loved nothing more than to lay on my lap. How I wish this product existed when my Bobo was alive (coincidentally, today marks the 11 year anniversary that Bobo went to the Bridge, he left the day after his 18th birthday in 2007.)

  • MYLAP™ Pet Bed is shaped just like a lap, which allows you to use any pair of soft pants, like pajama pants or sweatpants, as the bed cover. This adds your scent to the bed while providing your beloved pet with the comforting shape of your lap.
The familiar, comforting scent of pets’ owners has been shown in multiple studies to help reduce separation anxiety and create an overall sense of calm in cats and dogs. This is why they created the MYLAP™ Pet Bed .  To learn more about the importance of our scent to our pets, check out our their  Additional Resources page.

I thought that with Cody being a natural cuddler, (he isn't always a lap cat, but he loves sitting next to me on the couch, often right on my arm!), I thought this would be perfect for him! I was right! 

When the bed arrived, it was NAKED!! It is meant for YOU to  provide the pants of your choice.

Bed materials: 100% polyester material and fill
The MYLAP™ Pet Bed is made of a 100% polyester spun fabric and poly fill.  This polyester fabric is highly durable yet soft for comfort and can be washed in a standard washing machine.  There are no hard zippers to catch or snag, and the bed is self contained, so the entire bed can be washed in the washing machine.  See additional care instructions here

I left the bed out for a few days before putting a pair of my pants on them. Within the FIRST DAY not only was Cody sleeping on the bed WITHOUT my pants on them, it quickly became his FAVORITE BED.
Beds are designed for cats and dogs up to 25/30 lbs.

MADE IN THE USA


Admittedly this photo is out of focus because it was evening and I wanted to quickly take this shot before Cody moved. He is blissfully sleeping without a care in the world!



That was also the case with the above photo!!!


Then, it was time to decide which pair of pants to use for the pillow. One of MANY things I love, about the MYLAP™ Pet Bed is that you can completely change the look of the pillow, just by changing the pants you use! (You could decorate the bed for the holidays, your favorite sports teams, etc., just by using pants that you already have! I think flannel pajama bottoms would be fantastic for the winter months!). 

I chose an orange pair of pants that I don't normally wear......




TIP: To ensure your scent is attached to the pants before using them as the cover, wear the pants overnight or keep them in your bed for a night or two. Tie the bottom of the unused portion of the pants together, which helps create more of a “cradling” effect. I did not have to tie mine because my giant pants fit the pillow perfectly!

I was afraid Cody wouldn't sleep on the bed since he was used to sleeping on it WITHOUT the cover, I needn't have worried!

​$1 of every order placed

The MYLAP™ Pet Bed is perfect if you are going to be going out-of-town and a pet sitter will be coming to care for your pet. It is also great to bring your cat or dog if they have to be boarded for any reason, whether it be for care at the Vet, or for boarding while you are away.

As Cody clearly shows, it is also purrfect for every day use at home because it is so irresistibly comfy!!!

ABOUT TAMMY, THE  OWNER OF the MYLAP™ Pet Bed:

The unique pet bed design came to Tammy at  one of the lowest points of her life: when she was receiving radiation for breast cancer at the young age of 41.  

Every day after work, she  would go to her radiation treatment and then drive an hour and a half home.  The radiation made her so tired and sore.  Her  cat had always slept on, between, or against her legs (all cat parents know what I she is talking about), but at that time she was so sleep deprived and achy that as much as she loved her, she just wanted her off of her. She  kept thinking  there must be something out there that could simulate her lap for her cat while she could also remain comfortable. She searched every store she could think of and scoured the internet but found nothing like what she was looking for.


During the time Tammy was in radiation, she used that time on the table to plan the design of the bed and ended up creating a prototype that she tested on her cat. She soon discovered that not only did her cat love the bed, her dog did too! It has been a long road for Tammy, both in her personal recovery and the journey to launch this product, but she couldn’t be happier that she was able to turn something so devastating into something so positive.  

As Tammy says: "It's not always how hard you fall, it's how hard you get up!"

  2. Wow. That beats the pants off other beds!!!
    I sleep in a rolled up feather comforter that looks a lot like those pants, but they would be easier to wash, etc. Thank you. I suppose if it were filled with goose feathers, you could call it Pants Down!

  3. LOL! This is pretty funny! I bet kitties do love it!

  4. That is an incredibly SWEET "invention".....a lap cat would totally love it I'm sure. Teddy isn't a lap cat unfortunately - but I know that someone who enters to win the giveaway who has a lap baby will TRULY adore this marvelous bed. It's just brilliant! Good luck to everyone who enters.

    Hugs, Pam

  12. This is an awesome bed! I was just shopping yesterday looking for something new for my Lillia who is a CH kitty and she gets nervous a lot. Nothing at the pet store or tj maxx was appealing. She has an old bed now and it's such a coincidence because I'll put my old t-shirts or pillow cases on her bed because that's the only way to get her to lay in it as opposed to being restless and not getting cozy. Cody looks super happy. My condolences on Bobo's rainbow bridge anniversary. Tomorrow will be the four month mark since my big man passed from cancer. I hope you remember all of the wonderful memories today.

  15. Ok this is just genius! Such a simple concept that makes total sense! My cats would totally love it. Now I'm just wondering, what pants size does it take, is it one size fits all? mol

    1. I TOTALLY agree that it is genius!! Good question about pants size....the ones featured above are size large.......that is a good question! I am thinking one size fits all...or...use sweatpants, or a looser pant

      Delete
    2. I was wondering too. I hope I can find an ad with the price. xx

    3. You can use a women's size medium or any size larger. The bed can be made a little smaller or larger. Take a look at the instructional video in the home page (half way down the page) www.mylappetbed.pet You can also take a pair of pjs or sweat pants and stuff them between your sheets for a couple of nights and the scent will transfer.

  18. At first TW didn't think this would be appealing for me and that I have enough beds. I'm not a lap cat but I love laying and sleeping on the peeps' clothing when they take them off. What a great idea!

  19. This would be perfect for us as we can't all sleep in Mommy's lap at the same time. What a terrific idea, thanks for sharing it with us.

  22. I LOVE THIS!!! Especially since I have two lap cats - one of which would be completely content to spend the entire day in my lap. All that's missing here is the warmth of a human lap. Actually, I'd be afraid to get this ... I might be replaced!

  23. Someone looks mighty cozy and comfy!! :)

  24. Cody does look blissfully happy on that bed!

    We hope all of you are well and enjoying your summer xx :)

  25. What a great idea, and such a wonderful story behind it. I love when good things can come out of bad. I think Sam might like this. She has never slept with us, because she didn't like the dogs well enough; so something like this might make her happy.
