This cat house is very easy to make – what you really need are some very basic supplies: a t-shirt, wire hangers, and a piece of cardboard. It won’t take you more than five minutes to do it, so if your cat doesn’t like it, you won’t have wasted too much 😉
Materials to make a house for cats.
- A cat 😉
- A shirt.
- A piece of cardboard about 40 x 40 cm.
- Two wire hangers.
- Something to cut the hangers and help bend them – A pair of pliers for example.
Instructions for making a house for your cat.
Step 1. Cut the hooks.
Cut off both ends of the hanger where the hanger is located using pliers. See the picture.
Step 2. We shape the wire of the hanger and strengthen the cardboard base if necessary.
We shape the hangers to have a proper curvature.
If the cardboard you are using is not strong enough, you can tape it around the edges to give it a little more stability.
Step 3. We make a hole in each corner.
Try not to get it too close to the edge as it may break.
Step 4. Join the two hangers in the center with masking tape.
Then we insert the ends into the holes we made in the cardboard. We will have our structure made !!!
Step 5. Fold the ends and protect them with duct tape.
Step 6. Check that everything is properly aligned.
Step 7. We put on the shirt.
Tuck the shirt carefully into the tent frame, you need to position it so that the neck hole is in the middle of a front and the bottom of the shirt can be gathered at the bottom of the frame.
Fold the excess bottom of the shirt and pinch until the neck hole is taut, secure the bottom to the cardboard.
Step 8. The cat test.
We have already finished. Just give it to your cat to see if he gives you his approval 😉
