    Well, I was inspired by havingalook's avatar and then I saw my S. African friend, Jeanette , on FB this morning got some stacking bins and set them up with blankets inside and her cats liked them. so after water aerobics this morning I went to the store and bought some recycle bins and put a blankie in each one and my cats are using them too. Thought I'd post some pics for your viewing pleasure.

    I have two stacks of four--so everyone can have a cubicle. They seem to like them. They are the stackable recycle bins--one for glass, another for plastics, etc. So they are quite roomy--they like the one with the big blanket in it the best, so I will have to put bigger blankies in...

    What a perfect idea and a great space saver too. I will do that to. I can put them in the cat room and on the cat porch as well. Thank you for sharing.

    I'm a bit hesitant, are you guys sure they're stable? I have visions of a kitty jumping in one while going full speed ahead and the thing tumbling apart.

    Mine have been jumping in and out of them and they seem ok. But I have them backed up against a wall..and they are pretty wide legged--they feel pretty stable to me.....but anything with height could topple over I guess.

    That is a great idea! They are really cute and to mention that works alot better than cat beds lines up on the couch. lol I might have to copy that when my "kitties" get here. I'll make a post on that later.

    I bought them from a Meijer store. Not sure you have them....but I would imagine you could buy recycle bins most anywhere.....?

    Better yet, toss a heating pad in each one and you may never get the kitties out- particularly once fall weather hits! Cute idea!

    Those are awesome! I'm moving at the end of the month and will now have more room (thank god!) ... and those would fit perfectly in the kitchen / dining area! I wonder which stores in Canada would sell something like that? Time to investigate ...
