Introduction: Indoor Cat Shelter With Water and Food
Sometimes your cat might just want a special place to himself. You might just buy a tent but they can be expensive and they are just a just a tent. This is a cat tent with a food bowl and a water bowl, and you can make with a cheap price. Your cat will love it! The pint of making this project is that I just got a new cat and was looking for cat towers online, they were expensive! I started to look online for diy versions, but they used bamboo garden hoops, which I do not have. That’s when I found a video by 5-Minute Crafts, they had used a cardboard box, I thought that it would be perfect! I thought it look looked bland just being square so I made mine look like a house. The second problem was that it didn’t have a food and water holder, which most cat shelter had, so I added one and, BOOM! I had creative cat house!
Food and Water Bowls
For the first step you will need to cut the flaps of of the lid.
(NOTE: My box had 3 Flaps, you really only need two.
Cut off about one third of the lid as shown in the picture. The larger part will build up the front of the box.
For this step add the larger part of the lid to the opening on the box. You will need to attach it diagonally as shown in the picture.
Attach flaps of lid to the cardboard you put on in the last step. As shown in the picture
Put the box inside the T-Shirt, Making sure the neck is in the opening so your cat can get through.
Add safety pins to everywhere shown in picture.
Top of shirt neck
I did this because I am not good at sowing. I realized that safety pins were a lot easier to use!
Add platform for food and water to the back as shown in the picture.
This adds the food and water holder the original design was missing:)
Add cardboard strips to platform for support.
Put the bowls on. If not secure use Velcro or tape.
Put tape from bottom of the platform to the top of the box to make it more secure.
Step 11: Done!
Now let you cat into their comfy abode!
