10 Ideas To Create More Living Spaces For Your Cat

Even if you live in a small, big city apartment, your kitty can still have a jungle to explore with these simple and creative ways to add cmore living space. Most you can probably do with things you already have laying around!

#1 – Hammock

Brenda Hattery shares a boat with her kitty, Beryl, which obviously limits space. She has found some creative ways to give her cat more places to call her own, including using fruit nets as kitty hammocks by placing them under chairs with a pillow.

#2 – Screens

Hattery also noticed that her kitty liked to “hide” behind curtains, so she added some fabric to her bookshelves to create a little enclaves for Beryl.

#3 – Under the Bed

Another tip from Hattery, she has found many cats are happy under the bed, which is great space to give to your cats because it’s usually wasted otherwise. Simply adding a bed skirt can make under your bed an attractive hiding spot for your cat.

#4 – Wall Shelves

These have become all the rage lately, as more people in small spaces get cats and want something more attractive and space-saving than traditional cat trees. You can buy or make them yourself and really the only limit is the length of your wall and the height of your ceiling.

Windows are another “wasted space” that cats love. Like the shelves, you can buy premade seats, or make your own. Your cat will be pleased with either one.
