I have a bed alcove. I love it. The main perk is I can draw the curtains and no light gets in.

As far as the cat, I had the same issue when I got my area rug (a $400 rug that was clearanced for $30 and I had a rebate from a cc for $40). I bought double sided carpet tape and laid it down. It stuck wonderfully and the cat couldnt make the rug move.
