DIY Cat Tent

Ours is a pet-loving society. Since time immemorial, humans have kept animals for companions. Pets provide physical and emotional benefits, too. Caring for pets allows us to enjoy the outdoors, a little exercise, and socializing with other pet owners. As Sigmund Freud once said, “Time spent with cats is never wasted.”

If you have a pet cat, you know how they love small, protective spaces… a box, a linen basket, a bookshelf! If that sounds like your cat, this project is definitely for you. All you need is a large T-shirt, two hangers, no skills and zero tools and you can build your cat an igloo!

DIY Cat Tent

This little DIY cat tent is super easy in just five minutes. If it takes longer, it’s because your cat is laying on the T-shirt and refuses to budge!

So if you still don’t have a cat fort for your beloved feline, try this quick DIY project first. If your pet is the one in a thousand who doesn’t like it, no hard feelings, since you didn’t a lot of effort or expense into making it! 😉

  • 2 Wire Hangers
  • Old LargeT-Shirt
  • Pillow
