In need of a cat tent? Tents are not only for people, but they can also be for our fur babies.

Tents are not only an alternative to hotel or hostel accommodation; they are also a popular alternative to camping. There are different types of tents that cater to different needs.

There are two- and three-person tents that have enough space for one person to sleep on a mattress and have a little bit of room for storing items. Four-person tents are the most common type of tent. They are big enough for a family of four to sleep comfortably, and they have enough room for storing items.

Tents are great for people who love outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, fishing and hunting. Unlike other outdoor accessories, if you buy a tent, it will be very useful for you for a long time.

The tent can be used for as long as you want. Even if it is not used for many years, it will be helpful when you want to do some outdoor activities.

Today, we are in an era where there is a lot of 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 socialise 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. While you are out and about, cats get bored. In order to keep your cat from being destructive, you can use a cat tent.

A cat tent is a small tent that you can set up in any room of your house or apartment. It allows your feline to have its own spot to sleep and a place to do its business.

You can purchase cat tents in pet stores or online, or you can create one. All you need is a large T-shirt, two hangers, no skills and zero tools and you can build your cat an igloo! … a box, a linen basket, a bookshelf! If that sounds like your cat, this project is definitely for you.

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!

Owners who have done this for their cats say their furry mates loved this cat tent instantly. Some wouldn’t leave without some solid coaxing!

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
  • 15 x 15-inch Cardboard

It’s easy as 1, 2, 3!

Take the cardboard inside the large T-shirt, and insert the two wire hangers on the two sides of the cardboard. Make sure to join them together with the use of pliers. After joining them together, you already have an image of a mini cat tent.

All you need to do is to tape the bottom part of the t-shirt (you can sew them together if you can). the neckline will serve as the door of your cat tent.
