Cat beds and towers are great for creating a space that is all about your kitty. They can be expensive, however. And, more of than not it seems as though your cat always prefers the box in which it came. So, what are you to do?
Don’t spend hundreds of dollars on cat beds and towers. Go the DIY route and make something yourself.
First assess what your cat wants.
Well, assess as best you can. Pay attention to where your cat likes to relax. Does he or she hang out in high places? Does he lounge on the cool, hard floor? Does she just love those cardboard boxes that seem too small? These things will help you decide what sort of DIY cat bed your kitty might like best.
Go in search of a plan.
There are simply too many DIY cat projects to count. That’s good for you, however, because that means that you have options. Just do some searching. If you know that you need to use something very soft, then you know to search for plush DIY cat beds. If your cat likes some height, then a raised bed is best, or perhaps even a cat tree made of beds.
Gather the materials.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money on materials. DIY projects are made of easy-to-find-and-afford things for a reason. In most cases, you can find what you need cheaply at a nearby store. In other cases, you might even have what you need lying around your home, or a friend may be willing to give you some materials.
The possibilities for your cat’s new favorite sleeping spot are endless. Build something you love from the internet, or get creative and put together your own, unique version. Or, if you are a long-time DIY person, make your own project and put it up online for others.
