Also, on the mass market at the moment, there are about only two kinds of beds fitting for about two animals — a dog or a cat. There had only been some pets that can be provided with their places to sleep (chicken, ducks, birds, goats and cows, raccoons, fish, etc) but these are not yet commercially available.
