Custom Cat House

My dearly departed cat provided the inspiration for this latest project. I loathed his foam-and-polyester bed, so I decided to create an alternative before bringing home my next feline companions. I removed the shelf, sketched the design on its surface, used my drill and jigsaw to do the cut-outs, inset panels of pegboard and frosted Plexiglas, and hung the door with basic hinges. Inside, a central wall made from scrap plywood now adds support for the TV. Next, I'll install 1-inch pads covered with fabric left over from my rocking-chair reupholstery. And if the cats decline to use their duplex (or if I come to my senses about getting them), I'll just add two more pegboard panels and use it for storage.
