The world's most famous furniture store, Ikea, known for selling creations with unpronounceable names, gave a heartwarming donation to a shelter in Ontario, Canada, earlier this year, reports the Huffington Post.

The Etobicoke Humane Society was given 10 'Duktig' doll beds, which make perfect places for the feline occupants of the society to cat nap on. One of the the shelter's employees gushed about the generous donation on the company's Facebook page:
Our floors are easy to clean but not terribly comfortable to lay on. Now cats like Catsby and Frankie have beds of their own to curl up in.
Ikea doesn't usually sell animal furniture, but the doll beds seem to be comfortable and adorable places for a cat - or a little dog - to sleep!

The Swedish company also gave the shelter $300 to help feed the kitties. An adorable video of the beds being put together and tested by the lucky cats has already been viewed more than 170,000 times - the felines seem to love them!

Cats just like these in rescue shelters all over the world are waiting to find a loving family who will take them to their forever home. If you are considering getting a pet, adopt, don't shop! The gift of a second chance and the love of a family means the world to these animals, who have often been abandoned and abused.Animals from shelters make just as good companions and give just as much love as any other. Check out your local shelters, such as those run by the ASPCA in the United States, or the RSPCA in Great Britain.
