Do you want a cat bed for your beloved pet, yet you are unsure what to buy? Before spending some money on an expensive item that your cat may just end up not liking at all, consider this alternative: create your own cat bed, with just a little bit of imagination. Here are some great ideas to review, if you cannot find an excellent cat bed for sale and you think that doing it by yourself would be a better idea.
Transform an old suitcase
What is a cat bed anyway? If you are not afraid of taking a bit of a chance to transform old, worn out stuff you have around the house in the perfect sleeping place for your cat, you will find that there are many options readily available at your disposal.
Take, for instance, half of an old suitcase. You may even run a test and place the part you want to use on the floor, and see your pet’s reaction. The chances are that the cat will sit on it, pleased with a new place to stay. All that remains is to stuff the new bed with some comfortable bedding so that your cat will love it even more.
Make a house out of a cardboard box
People have all sorts of old packages around the house, which they don’t use. You probably have such card boxes lying around somewhere, as well. If that is the case, without even knowing it, you just found the perfect setup for your new cat’s bed.
You have more than just the material needed for a cat bed. What you have is a whole mini-house where your cat can spend time and feel well protected. Cats like getting inside boxes, anyway, so you just need to use a bit of craft and imagination to transform such a box into a cat house.
An old drawer
Do you happen to have some old furniture stored away somewhere? Search for an old drawer and invest a bit of reconditioning power in it. You will love what you can obtain from such a useless item. Make sure that the drawer doesn’t smell funny and place some pillows and bedding inside to make it comfortable for your cat.
Your pet will be more than pleased with your choice. If given a chance, cats always like to get inside drawers, so why not offer this incredible opportunity to just sleep in one? Your cat will appreciate the thought and not only.
A small table turned upside down
As you can see, all the ideas described here are meant to help you invest little to no DIY skills in the project of making a cat bed. The last we want to add is not an exception to the rule either. A small table turned with the feet up, will create a new enclosure for a cat that can barely wait to find a delimited space to call its own.
