Last year we got my oldest daughter her own cat. She still says it was the best present she ever got and that he is her best friend. So I am never surprised when she tells me she wants to make something for her Buddy (that is the cats name). Last time she wanted to make these yummy Cat Treats for him, and this time it is his very own Cardboard Cat House… yeah I think he is a little spoiled too.
My daughter planned out what she wanted the house to look like, but I did most of the building here since you have to use a box cutter, and I think she is a little too young at 6 to be using one of those. Buddy could not wait for us to finish his house and kept going in to check the progress through the entire process. Since Buddy is orange my daughter wanted the house to match him which is why it is all orange. I used some of the left over paint we had from her room and then we bought the darker orange for the roof.
