Think about it, it does not take much of anything and no knowledge at all, to
nail 5 small pieces of pressed board together. Also, it cost almost nothing to
do. Probably cheaper than the ink you wasted printing out those papers.
Get a few nails and a hammer.
Take one piece of the pressed board as the bottom piece. Now take a second
piece and nail it as the back piece.
What you should have now is a bottom with the back side nailed together.
Now do the same for the front.
What you should have now is the bottom piece and the front and back pieces nailed to it.
How you've done that is by hammering nails thru the bottom piece and into the back and front pieces.
Now you need both sides. Nail the side pieces to the front, back, and bottom pieces.
Now what you have is a box with no lid.
You can do one of two things. Buy a couple of cheap hinges and hinge the top to the back side.
This way, you can open it easily to clean it out or check on the cat or whatever.
OR simply nail the top piece to the back, front, and both of the sides.
Now you have a solid box. Take a drill and cut out a small hole/door, just large enough for the
cat to go inside. You don't want it very big. The smaller the better to keep warmth in.
That's it. You can even go to places like Lowes or HomeDeport and have them cut exactly the
sizes you want.
You can put some straw in it and the cat will have a very nice warm cozy dry place. You can
take it a step further and use a heating pad. I use an outdoor extension cord and simply plug
it in when it is below freezing.
