My cat likes this Coca Cola can, do I decided to use it in this project. I attached the can to my platform using more of my green tape. I just have so much extra green tape, so why not?

Now, all you need to do is take an old shirt that you do not use anymore, fold it up, and put it into your box! Make sure your shirt, pants, jacket, or whatever you are using feels soft and comfortable so your cat will like this bed. Thanks for your time!
