This bed is created in a donut design because the oval outer ring creates the feeling of security pets love, while the removable tufted cushion can be used as a crate or travel mat. Circular tufting creates an elegant upholstered look and ensures fiber does not clump or shift when washing. Microvelvet is a popular fabric choice for durability & easy care. This remarkable fabric does not pill and best of all, gets softer after every wash, maintaining its great look for years. Microvelvet also repels pet hair, dirt and even moisture! “Breathable” construction ensures fabric is “cool” in the summer and “cozy” in the winter months. This bed is “pre-washed” and color-safe for easy care; (machine-wash and dry on cool/gentle setting).
