‘Designer’ Pet Crate Covers

By: Diy maven Jul 23, 2008

created on: 07/23/08

Because of some behavioral problems, my very neurotic cat sleeps in a very large dog crate at night. It breaks my heart, as I’d much rather have her sleeping in our bed and specifically on my feet, which seems to be her preferred human body part/pillow.

Frankly, I do my best to complete the dingle berry removal process by ‘feel’, averting my gaze if possible. Considering its potential for such nastiness, we might think there could be nothing ‘cute’Continue Reading
