    How to Make Cat Beds

    Cat supplies such as the cat bed are extremely important for your cat. Cats spend a great deal of their lives asleep, so making sure they have a comfortable place to rest their head is crucial. Cat accessories can sometimes be quite expensive. A way around this is to make cat supplies yourself. See the following guide to making your own cat beds cheaply and easily.

     

     

     

     

    You Will Need:
    •    An old jumper
    •    Fake fur
    •    Stuffing
    •    Needle and thread
    •    Basket or box
    •    Double sided sticky tape

    Pay attention to your cat’s sleeping habits, particularly how and where they like to sleep. The majority of cats like to sleep curled up on something soft such as a pillow or sofa. Some prefer stretching out. You should design your cat bed according how your own cat likes to sleep.

    Bed One
    Grab an old jumper and sew the bottom of it up so that it is sealed. Now stuff the body with your stuffing material or even old plastic carrier bags. Once it is stuffed, sew the neck up.

    Now stuff the arms of the jumper until they are full and rounded. Sew the sleeves up to the side of the jumper. This provides a bolster around the whole cat bed. Most cats will find this type of bedding very comfortable.

    Bed Two
    Use a basket or a cardboard box that is large enough to fit your cat in. Cut a piece of fake fur to line the basket. Use double sided tape to stick the fur down.

    Either of these two homemade cat accessories will be welcomed by your cat greatly. Buying new cat accessories can be expensive. Not only will your cat be happy, but so will your bank balance and the environment!
