My tuxedo cat, Teddy, is a weirdo. His favorite things involve sitting on plastic bags and trying to eat my bobby pins.
He also enjoys sleeping in strange places — the shelves after he knocks all my knick knacks off, on top of the very highest kitchen cabinet or on my head while I'm in bed. He's kind of a dick. So, because I'm not a dick, I decided it was time to find a designated sleeping spot that actually sounded like something that would be comfortable. Plus, Ted had been sick for awhile, and it seemed like he deserved a bit of a hideaway.
My cat's name sake is also Teddy Roosevelt, lover of conservation, who established the first five national parks. And what do you do in parks? Camp! And what do you camp inside? Tents! And what is camping like? In-tents! (rimshot) Voila, a cat tent was born.
The best part of this tutorial is that these are all supplies you should have lying around at home. I love DIYs, but coming across something you can just do on a rainy day and don't have to leave your house to find supplies for is really a treat.
