Japanese cat owners started a fun trend by using popular doll beds from IKEA for their beloved felines. The official purpose of the $20 Duktig is to be a bed for dolls and other toys, but who said that they’re not suitable for pets?

Still, it seems like kind of a waste to buy creature comforts for inanimate objects like dolls. So instead, savvy Japanese pet owners have been picking up Duktigs for their cats.
The Duktig comes bundled with a tiny little sheet, but most pet owners who’re dedicated enough to buy furniture for their kitties seem to spruce the bed up with some extra linens and blankets.
