My Cat took to it instantly! It doesn't have much padding on the bottom, but its perfect to have on your bed or couch. It has a grippy ‘rubber’ underside to stop it moving around. The sides are pretty soft which seem to suit my Cat as he sometimes lies half-in, or with bits hanging out; or sometimes tightly curled in the middle. Stops him clambering over me at night as he has a targeted place to go. Great price.
