Supplies

Plastic storage bin

Marker

Box cutter

2-inch thick styrofoam cooler

3-4 old blankets

Insulated reusable shopping bags

Duct tape

Optional: Straw

1. Cut a square opening in the plastic storage container with your box cutters. (Prepare an extra large opening if your cat is fat.)

2. Trace the square onto the styrofoam cooler and cut it out. Tape the rough edges before placing it inside the storage bin.

3. Cut up your insulated lunch boxes or shopping bags and tape them to line the storage bin.

4. Fill any gaps with fuzzy blankets and tuck one into the styrofoam container to form a cozy bed for kitty.

5. Close the lid and bring your new "catty shack" outside to welcome all your new friends.
