Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your...hairball! If your kitty thinks she is queen of your castle, perhaps it's time to make her her own. These folks all did using cardboard boxes, tape, and other ordinary household supplies. They're fun to decorate (like having your own little dollhouse) and if your cat turns up her nose and whiskers at it, you're only out some of your time, not your money.

This super cute cat house has a welcoming paper garland, Basque-style window shutters and cat grass.

Benita of Chez Larsson made this tall cat condo based on a tutorial on Martha Stewart.com

For a more urban look, here's a "kitty city" with a corrugated, cat scratcher floor!

This little house was made while the maker watched the Golden Globe awards a few years ago. She spray painted the inside pink and made a cute scalloped roof with paper.

This 3-story fortress for "Junebug" was spray painted silver with hand-drawn stone markings and has a closeable castle door.

These cats were enjoying this box as a hideout so the owner decided that as long as the box was staying for awhile she may as well make it decent to look at.
