DIY: a new home for my cats

A while ago I’ve got this big cardboard box from a friend and it stood there in my livingroom untouched by me but loved by my cats as a big den. The box looked very shabby, that’s why I decided to turn it into a house for my cats and make it suitable for a room to look at like this one, which inspired me.

First I taped the top of the box like a roof and cut the left and right part as a triangle fitted to the taped top shape. Then I cut windows, doors and the cat shaped hole with a cutter free hand.

After that Toni and Fine couldn’t wait any longer. They had been sitting beside me the whole time, watching in anticipation of what I’m doing to their beloved cave.

After a close inspection and the favor of both I took the house outside, painted the door and window frames as well as the roof white, left it outside to dry and later, while watching some movie, set the last accents with a black permanent marker.

Toni cuddled onto the blanket and slept in their new house right away. Do you like it, too? 😉
