When they’re not eating, patrolling their territory, washing or helping you pack for your summer holiday, you’re likely to find cats asleep - it’s their favourite pastime.

 

We have been looking at how people have been making their cat's nap-time a talking point with a DIY cat bed, like the above Suitcase Cat Bed by Rustic Duck on Etsy.

You’ll find lots of versions of these beds all over the internet, especially on Pinterest. You just need a vintage suitcase and a cushion. Either split the case in half and fill with a cushion, or prop up the lid and decorate the inside.

 


Have you ever wondered what do you do with your old computer or TV monitors? Why not turn them into a cosy sleeping spot for your puss like this Cat Computer Bed by Apline on Etsy.

 

Just be sure to remove all the glass from the screen and fit out with comfy blankets. Mouse optional.

 


Another one we love is this Squishy Igloo by Ikea Hackers. You can buy squishy cat beds from most pet stores, but why not buy two and grab a large needle and strong thread and stitch two together to create a snug igloo? Cats like to have a dark place tucked away to take a snooze and this is the perfect DIY.




This one’s a bit of fun for those of you who have two cats! If you can swivel the back support of your office chair so it lies flat, you will provide your kitties with dual elevated resting spots with the Office Chair Cat Bed by bedzine.com. It provides plenty of amusement too!

 



This DIY cat bed by Row House Nest Blog is so easy, and stylish as well. You just need to secure a wicker laundry basket to the wall with screws and rawl plugs and pop in something comfy like a blanket. We bet your cat just won’t be able to resist their new hideout.

Have you made a DIY bed for your cat? Please share your photos!

My kit goes where she darn pleases. We don't have a bed any more because she didn't use it. She rather have vantage spots all over the house, watching the dog at all times.
