Falling in Love : Easy DIY Cat Tent Made For Free

Calling all cat lovers out there!

I LOVE my 3 fur children and I Iove finding ways to make them happy and healthy in my home. You can see more of them on my instagram Since a couple of my kitties like being under covers I decided I wanted to try making them a tent to crawl into for their nap times.

After doing a little research on my favorite site, Pinterest, I found a perfect tent that I could make with supplies I already had a home.
