A cave? With this information, then you are able to carefully construct a structure that fits your cat's personality. Here are a list of great ideas if you need more specific inspiration.
As always, I maintain the refrain that the best thing for any space and anyone is plants, plants, plants. Which is great for your cat too! Now, you have options. I prefer to grow wheatgrass as it it inexpensive, is hard to kill and grows like a weed. Your cat will love wheatgrass as well. You can plant these plants in your kitchen, yard, or balcony. Then, take it one step further put your plants in a kitty cat planter! If you have a soda bottle, scissors and some paint, then you have everything you need to get started!

Here are some ideas for very minimalistic looks.
Now you can show the world the paw prints that are imprinted on your heart. Do you have salt, flour and water lying around? Then you have everything that you need for this easy craft.

The good news is that you don't need a sewing machine and if you want to used upcycled materials it is possible. Surprise your friends and family when they come into your home, see two identical cats on the couch and assume they are seeing double.

Cat bums, butts, pincushions, whatever word calls to you. Some would say provacative, some would say way too much and others would say just a great idea to keep you furniture safe from water rings.
