My Max has impeccable taste! His all-time favourite spot to sleep in is an old fruit crate that I decked out for him when he was tiny and had to sleep in the laundry room while my other cat, Eloise, got used to him being around.
Now, of course, they sleep like this:
Such a simple thing to create as well.
I took this old yard sale fruit crate and scrubbed it out with Murphy's Oil Soap and water. Then I left it out in the sun to dry. I was going to use it on the wall as a shelf, so I painted the inner bottom of the crate.
Then Max came along...
Max the troublemaker, Max the little stinker, Max the bane of Eloise's existence causing him to be banished to the laundry room to wait it out until she accepted him.
So I threw a piece of rug underlayment (the cheapo kind you buy for preventing rugs from slipping) on the bottom of the crate. When you fold it up, it's kinda spongy. Then I used an old bath sheet or two to create a warm bed. It looked uncomfortable to me with the wood edge that they like to rest their chins on, so I added a scarf I had been knitting
I put the crate on my laundry work table so Max has a full view of the yard and lots of sun during the day. Now both cats fight over who gets to sleep in the crate. Go figure...
Have a great weekend!
