Wallbeds and Pets

Are there such things as wallbeds for dogs and cats? Yes there are!  Unfortunately, we don’t make them (at this time) but here is a place where you can find them.  Or you can even build your own with directions found here.

The subject of cat and dogs is close to our hearts here at the Great American Wallbed Co.  If you ever stop by to check out of selection of wallbeds, one special helper will gladly show you how to relax on top of the covers or sometimes UNDER the covers. Kitty has been helping us demonstrate our beds for about 5 years now. She is part Maine Coon and is not a tiny cat. Kitty’s early years are a secret but five years ago she was adopted by our fearless leader, Robert, and has been greeting folks ever since.

Thanks for Adopting!

One day Robert decided he wanted a cat.  Robert’s wife, Heidi, was not as keen on the idea.  A short while later, Robert visited a locksmith who happened to have a ‘shop cat’ and he figured he could do the same!  He went out to Homeward Bound, in Woodinville, WA, and was taken by a huge fluffball who had been passed over by many others.  She was too big, all grown up, not a wee little kitten… But when she brushed up against his leg, that was all it took.  Kitty had a new home.

She greets us when we arrive each day, plays with her toys and keeps us company when we work late.  She does have a feisty side- woe to you if you are petting her and dare to stop!  The high point of her day is when the mail arrives.  Bonnie, the mail carrier brings her treats and gives her a scratch or two.  Sad is the day when someone other than Bonnie is driving the truck and there aren’t any treats. She looks at them with undisguised disdain.  They are driving the truck and bringing the mail- therefore the treats should be there as well!

The rescues and shelters of FULL of special critters just like Kitty who would love to keep you company.  Please take an afternoon and find yourself a buddy.

I will leave you with two important tips:

Adopt, don’t Shop!

“Help control the pet population: Have your pet spayed or neutered.” (Thanks Bob Barker!)

We are The Great American Wallbed Co. in Bellevue, Washington.

Now you see it. Now you don’t!

Expanding the Possibilities of Affordable Senior Housing with Wallbeds

Recently we attended a Technology Home Showcase, arranged by LeadingAge Washington. We shared our solution of how to expand the possibilities with our version of an affordable Horizontal Wall Bed slightly narrower than a standard Twin size, mattress included. We call it The Companion Bed.

The Technology Committee, headed by Wattenbarger Architects, put together an exhibit that showcased how seniors can live either independently or within a long-term care community with the help of innovative, universal design and technology support.

Much thought has gone into making Senior Living an affordable and enjoyable experience.  But we will not kid ourselves; living in Senior Housing and Assisted Living/ Nursing Homes can be exorbitantly expensive.   So where does the “affordable” come in?

For the many that had the foresight to “move down” into smaller homes or condos, there are many affordable products enabling owners to stay put.  But as age progresses, to remain independent in a small footprint home, sometimes requires a companion to stay overnight.  How can they rest comfortably?  Not on a sleeper couch!

If I had a dollar for all our customers who threw out the sleeper couch in exchange for a Wall bed/Murphy Bed during our Costco Road Shows, I would be a rich woman! NO, they didn’t even donate it to the Services for the Blind, this contraption continues to be too UNCOMFORTABLE.

The Companion Bed (TM) to the rescue! It’s easy to operate, may even fit in a hallway, and provides a good rest for any BODY, expanding the possibilities, indeed! Find out more at our sister company’s site: NuSpace Medical.
