Homemade is as good as store bought

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
For the longest time I have been looking at pet beds at the store. But I was always hesitate to buy one in fear that Ping not like it or use it. So the other day I made one out of a cardboard box and a blanket. After a day or 2 he started using it. Here is a picture:

It is better than store-bought ones because it is the box. Most kitties prefer the box to the bed. You did the cheap version and stuck with the box. Brilliant!

Zissou has decided that her new favorite place is the box that my soon-to-be-nephew's quilt came in. (The A-Z one from pottery barn that just got discontinued). Good thing I kept the quilt in its bag! Just like kids, they are, the box and the ribbon are more fun than the toy!

I use the box tops from copier paper and put a fleece blanket in them. My cats love them! I also have 2 "real" cat beds that don't get used half as much

He looks quite content! Kitties seem to love boxes most of all, don't they?

My sister's one cat loves boxes too and prefers them over store-bought beds! I have found that "cheap" or "recycled" sometimes is the best route to go with pleasing my cats.

Radar has 3 beds, all of them cardboard boxes, all of them with an item of old clothing in as a cushion. One in the sitting room, one in the hall, and one in the kitchen. He uses them a lot (at least when he's not sprawled out taking up the entire sofa or curled up on a pile of fresh laundry ). I have thought about getting a proper 'cat bed' because they look a bit scruffy - but then I'm not really that houseproud anyway

That's very smart of you

Your kitty definitely gives his stamp of approval for the box / bed! Chances are if you had bought a specific 'pet bed' that he wouldn't have used it!
