 Super Easy Cat Bed

Simple Easy DIY Kitty Bed

This is our sweet little Arwen, she is around 13 years old. If you follow me on Instagram you definitely have seen lots photos of her. She is one of a kind...

Comfy Arwen?

She finds this comfortable? But hey, she likes to eat spider webs, too! Yeah... like I said one of a kind, but we love her!

It's important to us to make sure she is pampered and well taken care of, especially since she's hitting her sunset years...

Lately, she has been spending a lot of time by the back patio doors.

Silly kitty

Sunshine comes pouring in through those windows and she enjoys watching the birds. The only thing that kinda stinks, is that she sheds tons of pet hair on my rug. Which of course she's going to do, she's a cat, right? But what if I made something comfy for her to lay in? It might just keep my rug a bit cleaner. That would be a win for her and a win for me!

Most cats love cardboard boxes. I have no idea why, but Arwen loves them, too. That would make the perfect easy and cheap bed.

But I want to make it look better than an ugly box on the floor? So, I went to the basement searching for something... I found some leftover wallpaper from my Powder Room Makeover and an old board that I can cut down to the size of the box, to use as a base. I needed some sort of feet... I found these little cabinet base feet at my local home improvement store.

I grabbed some spray paint and I was set! I gave the box a quick coat of spray paint.

Then I glued the wallpaper around the edge and let it dry. While that was drying, I cut the base board down to the size of the box. A few simple cuts with the table saw, and we were done. Then a quick coat of spray paint.

Next, I cut the feet down to the size I wanted, then I flipped the base board over and glued the feet on with Liquid Nails. (Don't you like the scrap I found? Hey, whatever works, right?)

Glued feet onto the base board

The top of the wallpaper needed to be glued down. It was quicker just to use my glue gun for that.

Using Glue gun to secure top edge

I secured the box to the baseboard with a simple tiny screw, just so it wouldn't move around. To finish the bed, I added a soft towel for comfort, plus it will be easy to toss into the wash when it needs cleaning.

I think she's pretty happy. In fact, she looks like she's about ready to take a snooze. Oh, the life of a kitty....

Happy kitty

Another thing that makes Arwen happy is feeding time! She has always been a picky eater, she likes dry and wet food, but only certain wet food. She LOVES Friskies® Classic Paté Or Friskies® Tasty Treasures®with cheese. We also feed her Friskies® Indoor Delights dry food. That's what she's munching on...
