Dr. D Did It: Kitty Bed From An Old Shirt

 

They say you should blog about what you’re good at and what makes you happy, then people will be more likely to enjoy what you write.

 

Well, you know I’m passionate about veterinary medicine, about a fear-free experience for pets, and about the human-animal bond. But did you also know that I love DIY?  🙂

 

Here’s some fun for ya:  I want to show you what “Dr. D Did”. Just because it’s fun, and it makes me happy.  And maybe you will “Did It” too! I’m sure your pets won’t complain.

 

Here’s what Dr. D Did today:

 

I took this original idea for a DIY cat tent made from an old t-shirt from Pinterest (click the image to go to the original article and get directions).

And I made this for my kitties:

 

DIY Cat Tent for Jack

Don’t judge…I know it’s not pretty! But Jack doesn’t care. He is sleeping in it as I type this.

 

 

Here’s what you need:

  • An old shirt (I used an old scrub top, because, you know…veterinarian)
  • A piece of cardboard about 13×15 inches (I used the cardboard tray from a case of canned cat food)
  • two metal hangers
  • masking tape and/or safety pins
  • pliers and scissors

I happened to have all these supplies lying around my house, and the whole project took approximately 20 minutes.  That is including all the time I spent extracting a crazy kitten from the partially completed tent…
