Hey, DIY Cat People, don’t let the dog lovers outdo you! If you’re a cat lover with some time on your hands, get to work and have fun!
10.) Cat Bed #1
Take cardboard box. Put blanket inside. Bingo! Not pretty but functional. Perfect gift for your eco-conscious cat loving friends. I don’t think you’ll need to tell them you made it yourself.

9) Catnip Fish Toy
Trust Martha Stewart to come up with a gingham catnip toy. And one that you could actually show to your cat without embarrassment.
8) Cat Bed #2
Here’s a fun one you can make with the kids. After all the Summer Holidays are coming. And you know what they say about kids that make cat beds… Ok, neither do I, but crafty kids are probably less likely to be arrested.
7) Cat Scratcher
Every cat needs a scratcher unless you’re happy to have your furniture shredded. This simple one is surprisingly stylish.

6) Flea Repellant
Along with summer comes those pesky fleas and ticks. The chemicals used in common topical applications are harsh – so why not bring out your inner Earth Mother by making your own?

5) Personalized Cat Pillow
Since your cat can’t go everywhere, get them immortalized in pillow form. That way, wherever you go, you can take them along – and feel their beady little eyes judging you for the inferior being that you are.

4) Cat Bed for Two
Just in case you haven’t got the energy to sew or cut up a cardboard box, here’s an Ikea hack for lazy cat lovers. Buy Ikea Trendig 2013 tray table. Put round beds on trays. Done.

3) Cat Tree
Who says a cat tree has to be some dodgy thing made of carpet. No brain surgery needed to make this cool one. It simply involves an old ladder, a crate, some wood and fabric. Again, from Martha Stewart.
2) Grumpy Cat Shorts
I wouldn’t exactly call these shorts fashion forward but Grumpy Cat is pretty irresistible. Perfect date wear for crazy cat ladies. Crazy cat men – not so much.
1) Cat Portrait
Love this inspired idea for taking unique cat portraits. Use your imagination and have fun. And with you out of the picture, at least it won’t end up on Awkward Pet Photos.
