About a week ago my boyfriend William and I got a new bed frame and our bed sits much higher up. Before this, our cat Pumpkin had no problem getting onto our bed to nap, but now she is just a tad too short to jump on it without needing our help. Me being the crazy cat mom I am, I couldn’t go much longer seeing her try so hard to get on the bed. Although you can buy them at most pet supplies stores, I decided to make Pumpkin her own mini steps myself; it’s more affordable this way and I wanted to do something crafty. I made a quick trip to my local craft store and picked up 4 crates: 1 large and 3 small and some E6000 glue. I some used white chalk paint which I already had at home.
I painted the crates and laid them out to dry for about two hours. I flipped all of the crates facing down, applied E6000 to the smaller crates, and positioned them together to make the steps. I let the glue dry for a couple of hours and BAM, it’s as easy as that! I was thinking about personalizing the steps such as painting on her name or some paw prints, but I just wanted to stick to something plain and simple for now. William and I also put her favorite plush blanket and sprayed some catnip on it to make it more comfortable for her and she is definitely use to it now.
