About Us

The Dog and Cat Pad founder, Gerda Kruger, has had a life long love for animals and cares deeply for them and how they are treated.

She believes that adopting a pet is a commitment to love and care for the animal for its whole life and that they deserve a place in the home.

This has led, over the years, to quite a collection of, rather frankly, very ugly dog beds, blankets and cat baskets. Tired of these, she decided to design her own range of pet furniture.

The Dog and Cat Pad was born!

Now being hand crafted in Cape Town (under the mountain), bespoke beds, cushions and blankets are available for every discerning pet.

There are currently five models of bed in the range, available on its own in range of custom finishes from natural wood, white washed and waxed, to any colour under the rainbow

The beds are complimented with a range of cushions and blankets to suit any colour scheme.

The bed frames are made of strong plywood and the cushions are made from locally produced 100% cotton that is pre-shrunk and fitted with Velcro fasteners for easy removal of the inners.
