DIY wood cat cubby
Overall size of wood cat cubby
Ugly gas pipes in basement
The original plan for the cubby was to give our cat a rustic little hide-away, while covering up the gas pipes in our basement. We had a bunch of plywood scrap left over from the townhouse basement update, so we decided to use it up to make the something for the cat.
Front hole for cat entry. Back slit to fit over the gas piping.
First, a crate was constructed with the salvaged plywood and 2×2’s.
Then, a cubby hole was cut out of the crate for our cat to enter. The last opening was a slot was cut in the back side to cover the less than pretty water pipes thingy.

The cubby fit over the pipes. It was also sturdy enough to hold a cat tree.
Updated Version of cat cubby with larger arch opening
We have since cut a larger opening in the back, for a two-way pass through for our cats.
Here is a close up of the arch opening. You can really see how grungy the back side of the wood is.
Made with love for our beloved Kitty. May we meet again, one day sweet boy. Thanks for sharing the cubby with the younger guys.
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Amy
