Your cats will love this! As I began sewing it together - it's as though my cats knew I was making something for them. My cat Tommy (in the photos) loved the new home instantly! She was laying all over the material even before I began sewing things together. So the fishy cat house definitely looks crazy and a little silly - but that's what is great about it! You can easily alter the pattern and just use it to create a house for your kitties without making it into a fish. That's up to you! The full pattern is available so you can download in the next step. The final cat house will be approximately 25 inches long by 9 1/2 inches tall and 12 inches wide.
Also, I researched these online and only found the same old strange looking fish cat houses that people have made, based off of one single pattern that's sold in stores. I didn't like how it looked and the reviews weren't so good. So, I made my own. It's not perfect but I like how it turned out. :) This project is a little tough to sew when you get to the end - and you have to maneuver this big thing around your sewing machine. But if you're up for it - let's get started!
I couldn't figure out what to call this!!! A cat-eating fish house - a fish-eating cat house - I'm so confused! :) lol... So I stuck with a Fish Cat House!
