How to make your own cat bed

You don't need to spend loads of money buying your cat abed, you can make one yourself for almost nothing using materials that youalready have at home:
Find a good d empty plastic or cardboard box that youno longer need (laundry baskets are good).
If your box is made from cardboard and doesn't seem sturdy,reinforce it by lining it with material or extra card.
Cut a section out of the box so that your cat has a goodview of what's going on around him.
Put some soft bedding or towels that you no longer need inthe bottom. You can even use old sweaters etc just make sure they are soft.
Some cats prefer the smell of their owners, in which casedon't wash the items first.
Now put the bed somewhere comfy that you know your catlikes to hang out.
Make sure the cat bed is a good so that your cat canstretch out but not too big. Cats can't get cozy if they have too much space.
