Check Out This Awesome DIY Cat Tent!

Have too many old t-shirts in your closet?Remember that cats love cozy dark hide outs? You can actually make it a cat tent with your old t-shirts.

Step 1: What you need:

• a cat
• a medium t-shirt
• a 15 x 15 inch piece of cardboard
• two wire hangers
• A duct tape
• Some safety pins
• Plier to shape and cut the hanger

Step 2:

Cut the hangers. Cut off both squiggly ends or you can actually straighten it up with a small sized plier.

Step 3:

Shape the hangers and reinforce the cardboard if needed
Smoothen it well till its gracefully curved that will go from corner to corner of your piece of cardboard.

Then, tape the cardboard on all sides till it is stabile and dense using a duct tape.

Step 4:

Poke a hole in each corner. Use the end of the hanger to do this.
Make sure it's at least a half inch in from each edge and not too large.

Step 5:

Tape the two hangers together. Cross the two hangers in the middle and make sure all the ends touch the surface you're working on. Tape them together really well so they don't shift.

Push the ends through the holes you just made in the corners.

Step 6:

Bend the ends and tape them down Bend at least an inch on the bottom of each hanger so it sits against the bottom of the cardboard. Tape the ends down flat against the cardboard.Make sure you tape it well so it's nice and smooth and won't snag the shirt when you pull it over.

Step 7:

Check and make sure everything's lined up. Fiddle around with it and use the pliers if you need to straighten it out a bit so it looks even.

Step 8:

Create the tent!. Pull the shirt over the tent frame and position it so the neck hole is in the front middle and the bottom of the shirt is trailing behind the tent frame.

Fold up the excess from the bottom of the shirt and tighten it up so the neck hole is taut and safety pin the bottom in place. Then pull the sleeves tight and properly safety pin them in place too.
Keep it tight and fitted.

Step 9:

Give it to your cat!. Its finally ready for your cat to snuggle in it.Place some toys or catnips in.It might help your kitty to be comfortable and safe getting into its new play tent.
