Our cat Buddy loves to spend his days out on the screened porch rather than being cooped up in the house. Knowing that cooler days are coming, I designed a "cat cave" for him so he could keep warm on those cooler days. Mr. DIY loves building things and he got right to it.
The screened porch also needed a side table to put our drinks on so it was designed it with more than one function.
As you can see, there's a hole in the back of the cat cave. The hole is for the cord to an outdoor heating mat made for this very purpose- to keep animals toasty warm outdoors during the winter.
Here's Kitty checking out Buddy's new cat cave.
Here, you can see that the top is hinged for easy cleaning. Mr. DIY made the cat cave/side table to fit the heating mat.
There's also a little place to store things. This photo was taken before the top was attached.
I'll share how Mr. DIY built the cat cave/side table next time.
Thanks for stopping by!

This is the heating pad I purchased for Buddy's Cat Cave. It is a really soft heat and doesn't get too hot.
