This mat is perfect for when we get to watch our son's cats! One is a "bush cat" and prefers to sleep under our indoor bench. The small mat is the perfect fit between the front legs of the bench and the wall behind it and takes up about 1/2 the space underneath. I plan to purchase several more - one to go on top of the bench for his "tree cat" brother and to place in rooms where they might want to relax. The gray mat is a very nice color!
