This idea comes from our friend Chloe Mackintosh of Boxwood Avenue. "My cat, Mimi, is very old and spends most of her day napping," she says. "She loves this spot next to the window where she can watch the birds and bask in the sunshine."
Did you know cats spend up to 16 hours a day sleeping? Our furry friends love to find obscure places to take their catnaps, don't they? Finding the perfect spot often means cat hair on our pillows, sweaters, or clean laundry! Give your kitty a special place to relax with this easy DIY cat bed. For this project, you will need a table that has a top platform opening for securing ribbon ties. "If you don't have one, you can find wonderful inexpensive options at places like Ikea and Target," she suggests. "Or, if you have a wooden table, you can screw or nail little pegs to the four legs to serve as the hanging spot for this kitty hammock."
This cat bed is easy to remove to wash if needed and blends right in with your décor so that you don't need to have an extra piece of furniture.
