Lodge tent for pet

It's no secret that all cats have a habit of hiding in the most secluded corners of the apartment. Sometimes these games of hide-and-seek can give a lot of trouble to the owners, because their pet can start to bite the wires or just get stuck in one of these places. To avoid such a problem, it is necessary to provide the animal with its own quiet and calm corner. Such a tent is ideal for this purpose. In it, the animal will feel alone and protected. By the way, in such a house you can settle not only a cat, but also a ferret or a small dog.
For the manufacture will need the most simple materials that can be easily found at home or in the garage:
- cardboard for the base (suitable for a shoebox; the size depends on the size of the pet);
- thick wire (you can take the old clothes hangers and straighten them);
- T-shirt (size also depends on the pet);
- paper and plain tape;
- scissors;
- thread and needle;
we will make a framework

The first thing we'll do is make a frame. To do this, take two pieces of wire (40-50 cm each) and bend them with an arc. If the wire is thin, take it twice as large and twist in half as follows:

Then wrap the wire with paper tape, it will help make it more durable. Wind the ends especially carefully so that the animal does not hurt itself.

Now we cross the finished arcs and fix them in the middle with any tape.

We are preparing the base of the tent. To do this, you can take a flat piece of durable cardboard or a box of shoes. The latter can not be cut completely, but leave the side parts, this will make the frame more robust.

We carefully fix them with scotch tape, making sure that the sharp edges do not look out. You can also fix each arc near the side of the box.

Now prepare a t-shirt. Fold the sleeves together as follows and secure them:

You can try to pull the shirt on the frame, to check whether it is sufficiently voluminous. Adjust the distance between the sleeves, and then sew them together.

Another option is to leave the sleeves on the sides so that the pet can play with them or use them as a tunnel.If the shirt is too long, cut off the excess. From it you can later sew a small pillow and put it inside the house.

Now gently pull the shirt on the frame. The collar will serve as an entrance. Arrange it at such a level that the animal was comfortable to climb inside, but the feeling of privacy remained. Finish the craft by arbitrarily securing the T-shirt at the back. You can simply pull it off and tie it in a knot or gently sew the edges together. It should not be too tight so as not to deform the frame.
