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.

Sorry to hear about your winter blues, but there
are places worse.For instance in Northen BC the
wind chill is minus 30C. Luckily our area is still
around 10C with rain so can still do my daily walks in
my shorts lol

Nothing left for Christmas present as I just paid $350 for
badly needed orthodics to minimize leg pains when walking
or playing my favorite sport of table tennis.

So how does Free health insurance in Canada work?
Obviously it did not cover your cost for the leg brace.

You're actually good at playing table tennis ? I'm really bad at it, for me the paddle is way to small, can never hit anything with that tiny paddle and loose, i'm the worst tabble tennis player that ever existed. :mrgreen:

Doesn't necessarily mean you can't still have a nice and wonderful Christmas afterall. :)
Christmas is more then just about material things, sadly many have forgotten this.

I can't take the cold. even in the summer, my legs are cold due to my health problem and I can't go out when there's a couple inches on the ground for fear of slipping or falling. I can't take the chance of busting my one knee open. It's less than an inch of muscle and very thin skin. So I'm stuck in the house.

Hey!!! i got a fun idea,Let's see how much we can spend on christmas presents this year.

Happy consumerism. :mrgreen:

For once, the family has given me their lists early. Usually they wait until 2 weeks before Christmas then I get stressed because everything on the list is popular and sold out.

I'm half done because I did it all online. I just need to find out what to get a guy who has everything (husband).
