DIY Wood Crate Cat Bed

by Jenn

If you are a cat lover like myself, then seeing your cat happy puts a smile on your face. I have animals of all shapes and sizes, I’m not even joking.  If you were to visit my home you’d find a mini-potbelly pig, duck, Flemish giant rabbit, dog, horses and of course my cats.  I love them equally, but the other day I was thinking and my poor cats don’t get spoiled as much as the other animals and I dearly love my cats, especially Twix.  We have had her for about 10 years so she certainly deserves a little spoiling don’t you think?

DIY Wood Crate Cat Bed

I recently made my dog an awesome bed and I’ve noticed that my cat Twix likes to sleep on it when Sasha is outside.  Rather than watch the two fight over the bed I decided to do something special for Twix and came up with this DIY Wood Crate Cat Bed project, which I think turned out rather nicely and it was super easy to make.  Not to mention, I got everything I needed to make this awesome DIY Cat Bed from my local Target, including all the Meow Mix items my cat loves.  The treats really were a great way to make her feel special.

The DIY Wood Crate Cat Bed is fairly easy and your cat will appreciate it for a long time.  Plus, you can get everything you need for your cat’s bed while you are picking up their favorite Meow Mix treats at your local Target.  Between the new comfortable bed and the wonderful Meow Mix items, your cat will without a doubt be the happiest cat on the block. Twix was super excited to see all her awesome treats.  To be honest, I think the wood crate bed was her least favorite she wanted to bust into the good stuff!  Twix’s favorite Meow Mix product is the Meow Mix Tender Favorites with REAL Salmon & Crab Meat and the Meow Mix Irresistible.  Oh, and we can’t forget about the Meow Mix Bistro Recipes, which all cats seem to enjoy, but that’s not all you can score at your local Target.

Meow Mix is a great way for Twix and I to bond, normally she stays away from everyone but since she has been getting a little extra attention I’ve noticed she is spending more time hanging out with me in the mornings and it’s been great.  I’ve really missed the sweet loveable cat she was in her younger years.  Maybe that’s all she needed, a little love, and Meow Mix. Don’t forget it’s your one-stop shop for everything you need to make your furry friend a wood crate bed and all their favorite treats.
