Making a Cat Playhouse

Every year Santa always brings Tabitha our cat some tasty treats and a toy.

She always enjoys her treats but rarely enjoys her toys.Oh yes she will play with them for a bit and then loses interest.She is happy with a cardboard box and some rolled up pieces of paper…..seriously!
This year we decided that Santa should bring her something different….something homemade.
I searched on line for some ideas for cat toys and I found at tutorial on making a Cat playhouse on Martha Stewart’s website.

I used three boxes for this.And let me tell you this is not a fast project it took me several hours to do.I did not have a sharp knife I was using what I had.
Also this is NOT a project for little ones.Since most of this is using a sharp knife/razor and hot glue it is NOT recommended to do this with a child.I did  not even try this with my 13 year old.If you want to learn  how to do this visit HERE  .

I think our Tabitha will be happy on Christmas morning when she receives this!

I added some picmonkey snow for the photo!

A little peek inside you can see she can look out the windows and even lay down inside.I am going to add some soft fleece inside too!I did not attach the roof.That was the trickiest part of this project.I did my own version and left it off so it can easily be taken off.

Do your pets get Santa gifts?
Finishing up some baking today and I still need to wrap gifts.I am so excited to spend time with my family over the holidays.Mr. Cottage surprised us with an early Christmas gift.We are going to see the Rockettes Christmas spectacular on Saturday! We took our daughter when she was quite small and she does not remember it.I am thrilled to be going back to see it.One of my favorite shows and really puts you in the Christmas spirit!

    This is so cute. I love it. Perhaps next Christmas I will do the same as our cats love boxes so much they prefer them over a cat-bed.
    Have a very Merry Christmas. Hugs, Deb

    What a good cat mommy you are!! Such an awesome house! We used to have three cats (they all died of old age). We used to always get them gifts. I have been thinking about them a lot this Christmas. They loved sitting under the tree and playing with ribbon.

    Lucky Tabitha!

    My kids would love this too! But, I think they would tear it apart since the LOVE the cardboard scratchers!

    Happy Christmas!
