This is a nice time lapse video showing the difficulties that one can have when you have a cat and you want to make your bed. It is a perfect opportunity for a cat to have some fun which naturally gets in the way of making the bed! It doesn’t matter because it’s all part of the fun of looking after a domestic cat. I suppose that there can only be one reason for this behaviour, which is that it is a superb opportunity for a cat to hide under the sheets or the duvet cover as they are being draped over the bed. This is really about a cat wishing to go into a small area which is covered.
I can remember being at the cat breeder A1 savannahs in Oklahoma and Martin Stucki had bought a toy for F1 and F2 Savannah kittens which was a tunnel and they loved it of course. The point is that the same feline mentality that likes diving into a tunnel is the same as the one that likes getting into holes in a cat condo or climbing under a sheet or duvet cover when the beds being made. It is all a bit of fun and bed making with a cat is like playing with your cat from the cat’s point of view. The bed becomes a toy.
The reality of making bed when you have a cat 😹 Can you relate? 😺❤️

There is another important reason why cats love beds: they smell of their human. They are scent soakers in the language of Jackson Galaxy. Cats love the reassurance of the scent of their human caregiver.
