They are fascinated by birds, and the outside world in general. So, owners can lay some soft fabric next to the window for the kitty to curl up on while he or she gets a peak and what is happening outside. There are also some shelves that can be hung for this purpose.

6 Let Them Have Scratch Posts

Cats are great, but they can be a little bit on the destructive side when they want to scratch something. Sometimes there is no furniture or carpet that is safe from this, so cat owners can make their apartments far more beautiful by adding a scratching post or two.

As cute and lovable as pets are most of the time, sometimes owners don’t want them to go in a certain room. For example, many people don’t allow their animals to go in the kitchen, and some don’t allow them to go into their bedrooms because they might make a bit of a mess.

Many cat owners keep the litter box out in the open. But that isn’t something everyone likes to do, since it can look rather unpleasant.

Finding a cute way to make the litter box less noticeable is not actually that hard. Crafty cat owners can hang little curtains on the bottom of a table, then and put the litter box in there.

Another option is to hide the litter box in a drawer. A benefit here is that it won’t take up any extra space. Also, doing this doesn’t take much equipment, and it hardly takes any time at all.

2 Cat Shelves Can Look Cool On A Wall

Cats can use shelves to lay around in front of a window, but these shelves can also be put on wall. It sounds a little odd to say that cats would enjoy sitting on a shelf like an inanimate object, but they do like to sit still for long periods of time, so this can actually be enjoyable for them.

One of the coolest things about cat shelves is that they can be decorated by something other than a cat. They can be different shapes, colors, and sizes. In addition, these things are not very hard to install at all.

1 Humans Aren’t The Only Ones Who Like Hammocks

Any cat owner who is feeling crafty can dress their apartment up by creating a chic hammock for their furry companion. These things are pretty awesome because they can really make a place look chill and laid back.

Plus, they are actually extremely fun and easy to make. Also, some cat hammocks can be made out of cardboard. All that is needed is a box, a box cutter, a tape measurer, fabric, scissors, some glue, and paint. These things look pretty cute, and they give cats another place to chill out and relax, which is something kitties love to do.
