My Creative Space


My Creative Space is making a bed for Kipper.
aka "the cat that likes to get in the way".

The measuring for the correct fit didn't go too well.

But I think we can safely say he's not too worried about fit.

or comfort.

Perhaps something in a more boyish colour?

and which doesn't involve socks and undies?

Must be near his favourite people

and definately inside.
What do you reckon? Do you think there is any point? I'm thinking of using a recycled sweater and fabric scraps for stuffing. Have any of you made a bed that your cat has loved? Do any of you know of fabulous cat bed tutorials out there? Please do let me know!

(p.s. no cats or people were harmed in the making of this blog post)

Oh my god-in the Barbie box!!! I am laughing out loud-I hope my new cat grows up to be just like yours! He is so at home...love it. Good luck with his cat bed...and good luck making him want to use it ;o)

little grubs said...

What a great post - it's put a huge smile on my face. Probably no point really making one as he has several already! x

Amanda said...

Love the barbie box haha..What a character...I'd say anything that's old and worn will be a fave for him..As long as he thinks you still need it that is :P

LeelaBijou said...

Hahaha, very funny post!! The Barbie box definetly got me laughing out loud :)

Btw, he looks like my kitty, a lot!

Jennie said...

Your cat is amazing!
It must be nice for the children to have such a good friend hanging around - interested in everything they do!

Chicken Willow said...

Such a cute cat. It doesn't look like he needs a bed of his very own. Maybe just a jumper thrown on the floor.

Jill said...

Looks like he's quite comfy in his own choice of snuggly places!! Gorgeous cat, and great photos!

Edera Jewelry said...

Such a cute post--and a cute kitty!

Stephanie and Carlos said...

That's why I am such a cat person!! They are the perfect play toy, pillow, friend, helper etc. Hehe We made a bed for our cat Dory... In the end I ended up removing the pillow and lined it with old t-shirts... she loves it now!!

I love your cat stories. Its a long story, but mine love a little hand towel on the floor, it works wonders when by the heater, on the chair, on my bed or somewhere they are not familiar with. I do want to make them proper beds for the new house though.

Sally said...

This is the most wonderful post. I can't help but smile seeing all those gorgeous photos. 100% delightful. Kipper is ace!

Tracey said...

I really wish I was not allergic to cats, sneezing just looking at the monitor...

Ky said...

He's a cat, so he will do the exact opposite to what you want:) Unless it suits him.

Melanie said...

Gorgeous post. Can you make Jager one too after you've made Kipper one? He is nearly too big for Kipper's previous reject. I'm thinking leopord print because we live out West.

KIM said...

i love your story telling Sarah! the kitty seems like a lot of fun... your girls must absolutely adore him... :KIM

Kipper is hilarious!

Our cats most prefer:
1. wherever we have just been sitting [especially if we are only getting up for a moment -- they're very fast!]
2. any box
3. they are crazy for fake sheepskin [the kind snuggle bear is made of http://www.snuggle.com/promotions/promo_signup.aspx ] and stuffed animals -- the very fuzzy ones, especially when sprinkled with a little catnip.

thanks for stopping by my blog :]

This fella looks like he has everything he needs! What a beautiful post, and what a gorgeous cat! xo

teddybearswednesday said...

This is just the most gorgeous post. And totally cat, gets the spirit of Kipper and cat behaviour perfectly. Kipper looks quite a bit like my Turtle, a male version. xo

Chasing Purple Dreams said...

I hope if you do make it, it is well loved and used. Our very spoilt dog got a big lush expensive bed and he isn’t interested in it at all!

Roscia said...

He is sooooo cute - obviously very much part of family life.

RosieP said...

What a lovely cat, my two sleep anywhere they like, I've now given up trying to get them to sleep in their 'dedicated' beds.

Hugs RosieP x

Caroline said...

Cats in boxes always make me laugh! The way they get themselves in there and then sleep - amazing. Super sweet post.

Claire Gale said...

oh my goodness, my little girl would just love it if our cat slept in her bed! unfortunately, he's still just coming to terms with her coming within an inch of him!!!

Kate said...

That is just the best post Sarah! I have had a crazy full on day and I am completely exhausted but you and your cat have made me laugh and I feel heaps better now. Thanks and love. X

ecoMILF said...

Don't know of any tutorials but I think you should definitely go for it- he will love his new bed! Animals just love being spoiled! xo m.

Megan said...

love your post! what an excellent cat. my cat when i was a child loved to curl up in a4 paper box lids, wayyy too small and falling out all over the place just like yours. that expression on kipper's face in the last photo where he's stuck outside is a classic!
my other half made a scratching post climbing frame with a shelf on top for her to sit for our cat which she refuses to use. hope your moggie bed doesn't get a similar treatment

Steph said...

That photo of Kipper in the box with all the little toys is brilliant!!! What a charismatic cat. Hope you have a super weekend :)

michelle said...

great post and kipper is a ripper. good luck with the bed. my mr norris loves his (purchased from the reject shop) mainly because it is up on a bench, off the ground

74 Lime Lane said...

what a great story! Kipper is hilarious. He must give you quite a giggle sometimes.
May he have many pleasant dreams on his new bed.
