Sleepypod takes action during October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this means you could win your very own Sleepypod in the Ugly Bed Contest.
Sleepypod is running an Ugly Bed contest to give away a Sleepypod to the photo entry that best exemplifies the ugliest cat bed ever. Sleepypods are cool looking pet beds that double as carriers AND car seats, and Skeezy and I have our eyes on the blossom pink one that was introduced for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Fifteen percent of the profits from the sale of the pinky pods will be donated to breast cancer awareness and research charities.
Both my grandmother and my favorite aunt died of breast cancer, so like many women I worry that I — or my mother or sister — will be next. During October I make a point of thinking pink and buying products that support breast cancer research. Sleepypod co-owner Melony Lee says:
“October is breast cancer awareness month and Sleepypod is taking action. Beginning in October, a portion of the profits from sales of the blossom pink mobile pet beds will be donated to various breast cancer awareness and research charities in the hopes of making progress toward the road to recognition and recovery of this insidious disease.”
Sleepypod has another product, the Sleepypod Mini, which is a smaller version that is stowable beneath an airline seat. Sleepypod claims that this product alleviates pet stress associated with travel and confinement in traditional, hard boxes with limited visibility. The theory is, the pet can see better, and feels safe in her own bed, reducing the stress associated with being thrown into a “torture box” for a trip to the vet or on an airplane. (No word on whether one trip to the vet causes the cat to abandon the Sleepypod as a bed!)
As a fan of clean, modern style (and pink!), I love the look of the Sleepypod, and if I don’t win one in the contest, I might need to buy one for our cat bed collection.
Accessories are available for Sleepypods, including a warmer — for when a lap just isn’t available — and an ultraplush bedding insert guaranteed to provide an express ride to Napsville.
