Tails on Tuesday: Whiskas #CatHacks

May 24, 2016

It has been a while since I have had access to the computer to write. I have been busy supervising my new sister, teaching her all the important things in the world, like waking the humans up at 5am, biting their toes, singing the song of our people and all sorts. It is tiring having a sister. She does not sleep as much as I do. And she needs more toys than I, which is what I am writing about today, The Whiskas #CatHacks project.

Now, Cat Hacks are things you (as humans) can make for your kitty, which are from simple household items!

It is important for cats, especially indoor ones, to have plenty to do. So Whiskas have launched a #CatHacks project where humans are obliged to make a DIY cat hack for THEIR cat (to be honest, this is how ALL humans should spend their time anyway) AND donate one to their local shelter.  Dr Katrina Warren said: “Cats and kittens need a stimulating environment that satisfies their curious nature. Furniture that is interesting for felines to explore can really help the health and behaviour of cats and kittens. I know my cat, Mr Fox, would love a Cat Hack so I’ll be making one for my home and also one for my local cat shelter. Donating a Cat Hack is a good way to help cat shelters that often rely on the generosity of the local community,” said Dr Warren.

Since I came to rule the humans, I have ignored all their desires for me to sit in specified cat purchased products except for my tunnel, my beloved tunnel. This reminds them that they waste money on me, and to not be lazy and make things themselves.

Here is where I love to hang out in our house. Hack or not…

The humans converted the bottom of a cupboard into our toilet as a #cathack! So we can pee in privacy. I still peep at Piper though.

My tunnel, not a cat hack but still delightful…

A T-shirt cat cave… not super keen, but I went in there cause of all the effort.

Sooo if you humans are bored of ideas of what to make your kittehs here are some ideas from our furriends at Whiskers!

Cat Hack 1: The Hammock. Learn how minimalist design meets maximum feline comfort in a few really easy steps. This design means you can admire your cat’s beauty for even longer. Framed like a little piece  of art under your glass-top table as she purrs in a little table-leg hammock.

Cat Hack 2: The Lookout. Curious cats love high-up hideaways, so here’s a simple way to turn your bookcase into a stairway to heaven. This design allows your cat to climb to a little cubby house at the top of your wall-mounted library or display cabinet – from where they can look down on you as the subordinate you are.

Cat Hack 3: The Home Entertainment System. Curious cats will discover human furniture is never as fun as the box it comes in. Is it a car? Is it a cave? Is it a safe space with only one way in and out? Yes, it’s all that and more. Give your furry friend the gift of the thing good gifts come in: an open cardboard box.

Cat Hack 4: The Clock Feeder. Turn your everyday wall clock into a sophisticated meal distribution system for your four-legged friend. This time–dependent food dispenser uses the mechanics of a clock to keep your cat fed during the day – while you’re toiling at work.

Cat Hack 5: The Exercise Wheel. Transform two household items into a nifty spinning device so your four-legged friend can stretch their legs.  This Hack is for weight-conscious, highrise pussy cats that can’t get out for their workout.

Cat Hack 6: The Scratch Frame. Follow these easy steps if your cat need a new canvas to perfect the art of scratch-post modernism. Watch as your cat redefines art appreciation (and saves your sofa).

Pursonally, I’m hoping for the first one as my favourite! I do love a yoga mat… suspended would be even better! 

Soo get behind this purroject! Make your kitteh a Cat Hack and use the #CatHack and donate another one to your local shelter!

Happy making!

I’ll be back soon about how this whole kitten in my house situation is going!

For now you can follow me and Piperoni on Instagram!

Love and Meow for Now 🐾 🐾🐾 🐾
