    Owning a cat can be expensive, from the cost of weekly feeding to veterinary bills, so one great way to cut down costs is to build your own cat bed for your feline friend.

    Whether you want to build wicker cat beds or a cat igloo, you can be as creative with your design as you like – below, we offer some tips on the type of home comforts a cat will appreciate.

     

     

     

     

    DIY Cat Beds: A Guide


    1.    The first decision you will have to make will be over the fabric used to build the cat bed – remember cats are creatures of comfort, and will want to lie and sleep in a suitable environment. Therefore, it’s best to use softer fabrics such as fleece to offer the cat a relaxing haven in which to sleep.

    2.    Cats are territorial by nature, so it may be worth creating a bed that resembles a basket or a cat igloo – something in which the cat can hide away and truly call home. Try and create a basket that offers as much space as possible.

    3.    As you begin building the cat bed, take as much care as possible to ensure no materials that could put the cat at risk from injury jut out from the cat bed. You’ll need to take plenty of measurements and run pins around each edge to keep the fabric and the cat bed structure in place.

    4.    After all that hard work building cat beds, why not treat your beloved pet further by investing in some cat accessories? It may be a good idea to integrate a couple of old cushions into the bed to add further comfort.

    5.    Feeling lazy? Then you can always buy cat beds. From wicker cat beds to heated cat beds for the winter months, you can find many different varieties of cat bed on the Click Pets website.
