Step 1: TheBox

Grab a cardboard box out of the recycling or buy one from the store. Make sure your cat likes it!

Step 2: Decorate

Decorate your box however you want to. I used green tape. It us not smooth, it is more of a papery feeling.

Step 3: Platform

Cut out a part of another cardboard box. I used a Ritz box.

Step 4: More Decorating

Now, decorate the part of your other cardboard box. I used some more green tape.

Step 5: Attachment

Now, you attach your platform to your decorated cardboard box.

Step 6: The Can

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?

Step 7: Make It Snug

Now, secure those strips of tape with more tape by wrapping green tape around the can and the strips of tape.

Step 8: Make It Comfy!

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!
