    Default Recycled computer monitor turned cat bed

    This cat bed made from an old computer monitor provides the perfect spot for kitty to perch in while you get your daily LOL Cat fix on your computer. It was created by an Etsy crafter who not only painted the monitor shell, but even had a custom pillow made for the interior. The theme is decidedly old-school cat (there are fish and paw prints decorating the side), while the rest of the details are decidedly new-school digital (reclaimed keyboard keys on the front spell out "kitty" and the old "on/off" button has a cat face painted on it). This particular edition has sold out, but my guess is you could easily create one yourself with a monitor, some paint, and a bit of fabric.

    I should do that. The cats used to sit on top of my monitor until I got the flatscreen. When it was new there were a couple of incidents of kitties jumping up and falling behind the desk. Poor guys, I took their nap spot.

    My boys would love this. The Siamese is fascinated by anything to do with the computer, printer, disk drive, monitor, keyboard, lol.

    I like it! I think we have a retired monitor laying around now actually. This would really please my inner (not so much?) geek.

    Good idea but I don’t think our cat would go for this. She prefers to sleep
    in a plain old shoe box and the smaller the box the better.
    When people come to our home they feel sorry for her because she is so cramped. I explain that we've tried to get her interested in larger boxes such as a boot box, we even purchased a carpeted cat condo for her, but she just isn’t interested.

    silly cats, they love small dark tight spaces. I always ALWAYS find mine in my underwear drawer w/ his glowing eyes peeking out through a crack and scarying the shit outta me or in between my clothes hanging over my dresser in the closet crinkling all my shit and getting his black hair all over it
