A couple have five cats and two dogs who love to share the bed with them at night, so they came up with a brilliant idea that would make every one happy and comfy - they built a custom-made giant bed!
The couple loves their 7 fur babies dearly and enjoy snuggling with them at night. "Solution? We made an 11ft King+Full mega bed!" reddit user Robdogbird wrote.
"We had the king spring mattress and wanted to try the memory foam but they are super expensive so we got full foam mattress. We also needed storage so we skipped bedframe and boxspring and framed out storage under it so we lined up height to make them even."
The bed is measured to be 80" or 6.5ft length by 11.5ft width for a total of about 75 sq ft!
"The seam is noticable when you lay across it but not nearly what you would think. Sheets are just one set full and one king, matching if we can find them. The comforters are just two full and cover it perfectly, also nice if she wants covers and I don't."
"Best I've got for scale is construction phase with three helpers."
When asked how hard it is to keep the bed clean, they said: "honestly we only do (it) if people are coming over otherwise it's a giant pile of pillows, blankets, cats and dogs. Because the animals love it so much we do have to wash four loads of bedding regularly... still, one of our schemes I am most satisfied with!"
Their 7 fur buddies from the left: Lexi (Pomeranian), Bear (black cat), Lola (chihuahua), Zoey (calico), Kitty (brown & white), Prince Caspian (orange), and Isha (another calico)
"When we met I had the 2 dogs and he had Kitty and Prince Caspian. Two years later, his sister moved back in with their parents and couldn't take her 2 cats, so we took in her calico sister cats. Bear was my grandparents' cat they couldn't take care of anymore so we added him to the mix too," they explained how their family grew over time.

Isha the cat refused to join the party.
Now the family of 9 have a giant bed to snuggle together in every night.
