Welcome to series # 2 of DIY cat product is how to make a DIY cat teepee mat in 30 mins
All of us who own a cat knows how hard it can be to make then sit at one place for long, unless they are having their daily nap or is as lazy as Garfield! We keep inventing newer and more interesting things to keep them occupied as we go about our daily business.
However, there are few things that will make them sit down at one point for long. But, the perfect thing is finally here. And you won’t believe how easy it is to make.
Let me introduce the Teepee Mat!
A wonder mat that will keep your cat at one place for hours and will also double up as their relaxing couch so that you have the bed to yourself!
Have you already started searching for teepee mats available online?
You need not. I bring to you the perfect DIY project – making a cat teepee mat at home in less than 30 minutes. The steps are easy to follow and you will have your cat teepee mat in no time.
Let’s begin with the things you will need.
- 3 chair pads with good cushion (remember, your cat won’t just lay down on any material, so best get the pads from his/her favorite chairs)
- Fabric cleaning brush
- Stitching thread and needle
- A moderately thick string
- Your cat’s favorite toy
Once you have these, let’s proceed to create the perfect teepee mat and give these chair pads new life.
Step 1 DIY Cat Teepee Mat
Take the chair pads and clean them off using fabric cleaning brush.
Step 2 DIY Cat Teepee Mat
Now, take one of the pads and cut the fasteners.
Once you are done, take the other two pads, lay them on either side of this one, and stitch them together. Keep the fasteners of the rest of the pads such that when you bring them together the fasteners stay on top.
Step 4 DIY Cat Teepee Mat
You are almost done. Here’s a small addition that will be extra beneficial. Get a toy that your cat is really fond of.

Next, attach a thick string to the toy, something that your cat won’t be able to chew away!
Once the string is attached to the toy, stich the other end of the string to one of ends of the pads.
Voila! Your teepee mat is ready.
It’s testing time now.
Put out the mat in the overlap mode with the toy hanging from the top on the inside. Is your kitty sitting in it and amused by the toy hanging?
Now, let’s try the mattress mode and lay it down. Your kitty is happy to lay down on it and playing with the toy?
Well, you have successfully completed your kitty approval tests.
Now go on and enjoy your day as your cats enjoy the teepee mat with the toy!
