Cats spend up to twenty hours a day sleeping, so they are always looking for a quiet, comfortable area to curl up.

A nice method to provide your cat a quiet place to rest is to make her a bed yourself. And if your cat has a habit of keeping you up at night, a luxurious new pet bed may be the answer to your sleepless nights.

The following are four unique, inexpensive, and stylish DIY options for a cat bed:

1. Kitty Cat Sweater Bed

Because, let’s face it, nobody dislikes the coziness of a warm sweater. This cat bed requires no tools and can be assembled in less than five minutes, which is a major plus.

What You’ll Need

  1. An oversize, worn-out sweater (the cozier the better, such as wool or thick cotton)
  2. The big, fluffy pillow for your bed (something she can sink into)

How to Make It

  1. Spread the sweater out on the floor, front side down.
  2. Insert the pillow inside the sweater so that it forms a case.

Wrap the pillow inside the sweater and set the sleeves flat by pulling them back into the garment.

The bed can be moved around with ease because of how light it is. Keep the sweater clean, but let it air out so that it retains your aroma; that way it will be like cuddling up with you all over again. One of our test cats even tried to get some shut-eye on the components before the bed was put together—she was clearly a fan.

2. Cat Hammock Bed

Your pet will feel safe and secure in the cage while also enjoying the comfort of the blanket and the gentle support of the hammock.

What You’ll Need

  1. Bag made of thin plastic
  2. Extra-large fleece throw
  3. a needle for sewing
  4. Thread that weighs a lot

How to Make It

  1. For added coziness, fold the blanket in half.
  2. Set suitcase upside down on the throw rug.
  3. Wrapping paper manner, bring the blanket’s ends together by pulling them across the tote’s bottom.
  4. Join the sides by stitching them.
  5. Just turn the bag over.
  6. Enjoy seeing your cat doze off.

The trick to making this hammock into the ideal napping spot is to avoid making the blanket edges too tight. The blanket should be oversized, just like a hammock, with plenty of give and stretch.

3. Spy Bench Cat Bed

Since cats are naturally curious, she has found a perfect spot to snoop near the front door. This bed gives her the necessary amount of seclusion.

What You’ll Need

  1. Cube-shaped storage bench
  2. Towels for the bathroom that are both thick and fluffy

How to Make It

  1. Put your cat in a room with an empty cubby.
  2. Towels should be layered for storage.

Towels are preferable to pillows or rugs because cats can knead them as they settle in. Having her own space in bed is something she’ll appreciate.

4. Box Bed

If you’ve ever had a cat, you know they adore cardboard boxes, and as PetMD verifies, they can be transformed into comfortable and stylish cat beds. In this iteration, you can customize the ornamentation to suit your tastes.

What You’ll Need

  1. Solid, closed cardboard container (a bankers box or paper box works well)
  2. Cube-shaped fleece throw
  3. Present wrap (you also can use fabric or self-sticking contact paper)
  4. As an adhesive, you can use cellophane tape on wrapping paper and hot glue on fabric.

How to Make It

  1. Cut a hole on the long side of the box with the box cutter. Don’t remove too much of the box’s side. Make sure there’s some breathing area on both sides of the box.
  2. Since you are making a present for your friend, wrap the box and its lid with festive, colorful paper.
  3. Spread the fleece out on the bottom of the box so your cat has plenty of area to move.
  4. If you want to give your cat some privacy, you can stack the box on top of the lid.

The paper can be readily replaced for a new design or season.
