    Before We Start

    Take your piece of cardboard and tape the edges. If you want your cat to have extra comfort you can attach a cushion as well. But make sure to tape it to the cardboard tightly!

    Step 1

    Close of of the edges from the metal hanger, trimmed right off.

    Break the hangers. You want to cute off the hook and straighten the rest out.

    Step 2:

    With some tape and resourcefulness, the wires from the hanger are starting to make the wire-frame for the tent.

    Lay one hanger on top of the other and tape them together. Once taped all around the middle so the two hanger are firmly stuck together, you're going to bend the 4 side to a curve shape.

    A Tricky Part

    Adding the two pieces together gets a bit tricky.

    You want each leg to go through the piece of cardboard. If the cardboard is too hard, take a pair of scissors and poke an extremely small hole on the corner. 

    Fit the leg through and bind it on the other side, and tape it on the bottom.

    Fun Part!

    Now add the T-shirt. You want to start from the large opening on the bottom, not the head piece. Do this so that the head piece is not covering anything.

    Finishing Touch

    Take the extra pieces and fold them to the bottom. You can saftey pins them together, or if you want can super glue them to the bottom.
