CatLovers: Do-it-yourself Cat Tent

Saturday, April 18, 2015

Dearest CATLovers,

We have another project to make for our kitty cats. It is the DIY: Cat tent. Not only it is functional for our cats sleep/play time but also it is easy to do. I've seen a lot of this tents in our fellow catlovers and I decided to give it a try for my cats too. Let's do it!

What you'll need:

Round neck t-shirt - Any t-shirt that you are not using anymore. The size of the t-shirt depends on the size of the tent you will do.

Tape, scissors, and stapler- To cut and secure the tent.

Carton/cardboard- It will be the base for our cat tent.

Old metal hangers (2 pcs)- It will be use to built the structure of the cat tent.

What to do:

Step 1. We will start up with the hanger. Cut up the hanger with pliers or disassembled it to straighten it up (see the photo below). Form it like an arch.

Step 2. Let us cut the cardboard/carton to your desired length. How fun the DIY with your cute kitties around? (wink)

Step 3. Tie the metal wire crossed together with another wire to secure it. Measure the wire with the base carton/cardboard.

Step 4. Next, make a hole to stick out the metal wire. After that, slightly bend the wire to secure it. I get a piece of cloth and staple it in place. You can tape it too. Do the same on four sides. Now, you have the skeleton tent.

Step 5. Lastly, dress it with your round neck t-shirt. The size of the t-shirt depends on how big is the size of your tent. Secure snugly the t-shirt with tape at the cardboard/carton. 

That's it! Your feline friends can now enjoy their tent. I know, you can do better than my tent. Make yours too and share it with me.

Looks like there is a kitty too curious with the tent. It is my baby Miguel! I hope he likes it.
