One keen-eyed B&M shopper spotted a range of pet furniture in the bargain retailer, and was quick to share their discovery online.
The budget giant sells numerous cat and dog bed products such as Rattan Effect Pet Houses, Side Table with Pet Beds, Rattan Effect Pet Egg Chairs and Faux Fur Pet Houses.
These range in price from £30 to £65, so likely will not appeal to those on a budget, but they have nevertheless been called “gorgeous” by shoppers.

Before long, the post had attracted more than 700 likes and almost 1,000 comments from fellow consumers sharing their thoughts.

A second echoed: “Omg these are gorgeous”.
“I know they’re expensive but how cute are these,” commented a third after tagging another user.
“Buying a cat just to have these cute accessories,” a fourth joked.
One satisfied customer meanwhile wrote: “I bought the hanging egg chair months back and it was only £45 crazy how much its gone up but happy to say my cat loves it”.
However, many Facebook users took issue with the pet beds — with some stating that they would never actually be used.
One said: “Absolutely love this but my cats won’t sleep in it, they prefer sleeping on laundry lol”.
A second wrote: “These are all lovely but knowing my cat she would snub them. I got her the egg chair and had to return it because she refused to use it”.
“We bought the egg chair for our cat, she sniffed it, end of,” one frustrated shopper shared.
A fourth revealed: “I have the circle swing thing and my cats hate it so much so I use it to take pictures of my newborn in instead”.
Other users had concerns about how durable the products would be.
One posted: “I’m not a cat owner but I’ve known a few and the ones I’ve known would have that hanging cat bed clawed up in second”
A second commented: “I’m not sure how practical the macrame one is. My cat is such a chonk the plaster and wall would come away with him underneath”
