We all know how cats are. But most of all, we know they can go anywhere – without us knowing.
So, why not make your own cat house for your beloved pet? It will not only keep your cat near you, but also keep it safe from outdoor dangers. The only question is: where should your cat live? Or more specifically, what kind of house should your cat be in?
Here are some tips and ideas when making your own cat house:
Decide first if your cat/s will live indoors or outdoors.
This will help you identify and even set the right kind of ground rules for your cat. Here are two examples: indoor cats should have their own litter box, while outdoor cats can only roam around the backyard. Either way, deciding first if your cat will live indoors or outdoors will not only benefit it, but also you in the long run.
If your cat will live indoors, you can go for room-like cat houses.
Cats, or any other domestic pets for that matter, become a part of your family the moment you decide to care for them. Thus, why not make a room-like cat house for your beloved pet? It’s comfortable and safe enough, just like your very own bedroom.
You can also go for box-like cat houses.
Have you ever made forts with sofas and pillows before? Yeah, those were fun. How about seeing cardboard forts with abandoned pets in backstreets? It kinda feels gloomy, right? Well, you can always turn fun and gloomy into comfortable and safe for your beloved pet via a box-like cat house.
There are also cat trees, cat towers, and scratching posts to consider.
Aside from going anywhere without us knowing, these fur babies also love to climb high places. So rather than making your pet go outside and climb trees or even get stuck up there and cause more problems than actual ones, why not make your own cat tree indoors for easy retrieving?
If your cat will live outdoors, you can go for catios.
For those unfamiliar with it, catios are outdoor cat houses – pretty much like bird cages, but only wider and more comfortable for domestic pets like cats. It can either be stand-alone or incorporated on a wall section of your house. Either way, your cat won’t need to go that far just to be comfortable and safe.
