Nutrish Indoor Complete is the perfect food to address good indoor adult cat digestion, weight concerns and immunity. It is fiber rich, has minerals and taurine for a complete and balanced diet and best of all my cats love it!
Inspired by Nutrish Indoor Complete, I decided to build an indoor cat playhouse DIY using bright colors, butterflies and insect motifs that my cats love. My felines like to lounge in front of the window and often enjoy the garden. Where they sunbath and chase insects and lizards.
Adult cats who live indoors, aside from needing a balanced diet they also require stimulation to avoid boredom and mischief. Having suitable toys, scratching posts and their own furniture helps them to be relaxed and stimulate their natural instincts.
My cats are fans of cardboard boxes. Whenever a boxed package arrives they love playing with the cardboard box, so it occurred to me to craft this indoor cat playhouse using cardboard boxes. If you like crafts, I invite you to make your own indoor cat playhouse. It is a fun activity and the result is a cute playhouse that your felines will enjoy for endless hours. Watch the video for the complete scoop.
These are the materials that are needed to make the indoor cat playhouse:
- 2 large cardboard boxes (18 “x 18” x 24 “inches)
- White spray paint
- Color paints
- Plastic containers for paint mixing
- Butterfly and flower designs templates or stencils
- Glue and hot glue gun
- A cutter
- A marker or pen
- A ruler
- One cat figurine
- One wooden sign with the word LOVE
- Six foam rubber sheets (brown and beige colors to simulate shingles)
- Cardboard scratcher (optional)
- Catnip (optional)
- Cat toys (optional)
At home we have four adult cats, all rescued. It’s sad to see so many abandoned cats. That’s why I’m glad that Rachael Ray created an organization called Rachael’s Rescue® which is dedicated to helping all those forgotten pets, those who have no love and a responsible owner to take care of them.
This is how it works. When you buy Nutrish products a portion of the sale is donated to organizations and charities dedicated to helping animals through The Rachael Ray Foundation. The proceeds are used for medical treatments and supplies to help animals in need.
