The idea started off as a means to hide a litter box and reduce the spread of cat litter in a small apartment. The idea has grown to a multi-use piece of custom furniture. As a passive piece of furniture, it stores a functional litter box, cat food and water, cat toys, as well as storage for extra litter and food. During the day and when company is not over, it serves as a lounging area for the cats to look out the window, scratching posts, and play area. During the evening it serves bench seating for two people and a piece of aesthetic artwork. For the most part, the build was pretty straightforward. The tasks that made me grow as a builder were building the cat tree and joints connecting the entire piece of furniture. I only had funds to purchase the pegboard, closet door pulls knobs concealing the litter box, and paint, everything else was sourced from repurposed lumber. The tools used to build this project were sand paper and a 5-piece Ryobi combo set that was gifted to me this past Christmas. I am very glad the original purpose for building this project has been successful. The cats use the litter box and the path created to get to it as well as when company comes over they have no idea there is a litter box in the living room. My cats thoroughly enjoy this “Cat Credenza”.
