Cats are finicky animals, but you just gotta love them! They require a lot of attention, and when you can’t give them the attention they need, they will need something else to keep them busy so that they aren’t being mischievous. They also require other essentials, like scratching posts, toys, and a litter box. Instead of spending a lot of money on a big cat play house for your feline friend, why not put your DIY skills to the test to help make things a bit more interesting for them?
Whether you are looking for a simple litter box that will be easy for you to clean, or a fun and crafty cat tree, we have a few DIY plans that will help to make it easier for you.

They say some people are ‘dog people’ and others are ‘cat people’. I’m a cat person! I got my first cat when I was in the 2nd grade. I had to beg my mom to let me keep him. He was an orange tabby, and I have been partial to them ever since! We currently have three cats.
Being a cat person, I am always trying to learn more about why cats do the things they do. Cats are such loving animals, but they can be so fickle. I guess I can kind of relate to their behavior, and that is probably what attracts me to them.
