Easy Recycled Bottle Cat Container

Recycled Bottle Cat Containers make a cute, and best of all FREE craft! I came up with this fun idea after doing a little spring cleaning.

My cat is not feeling well and living in my bathroom right now, which means I’m constantly cleaning that room for him. I found a bunch of old shampoo bottles that I started to trash, but decided to turn them into cat containers instead. I guess my cat inspired me!

Start Fresh This Spring

Spring is the perfect time to clear out your old bathroom products and start fresh! I’m writing on behalf of CVS to let you know they are having an amazing offer on various Suave products.  Now is the perfect time to buy new products for the entire family! I got all of these great Suave products for less than $15.

Here’s what I got at CVS:

  • Suave Ocean Breeze Body Wash for my daughter who loves body wash. This contains mineral-rich sea algae extract, and is infused with Vitamin E, which can help condition her dry skin.
  • Suave Keratin Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner for me! Did you know your hair’s natural keratin protein depletes over time, leading to frizzy and unmanageable hair. This helps restore and tame unruly strands for smoother silky hair.

Go ahead and use up and recycle those half-empty bottles with this fun cat container craft. Then head over to CVS for some great values. Right now get 2 for $6 + Buy 2 and get $2 ExtraBucks rewards with your CVS card.

How to Make a Recycled Bottle Cat Container

Now that you’ve cleaned out old bottles of shampoo, lotion and body wash. It’s time to make some cute cat containers.

Recycled bottle cat container is a simple craft! Easy repurposed shampoo bottles turned into cute kitty cat containers.

 

I think these easy Recycled Bottle Cat Containers would be fun for a kid’s birthday party activity. Just have pre-cut bottles cut and let kids draw their own cat faces on the bottles with a sharpie.

What you’ll need:

  • Shampoo, lotion or body wash bottles (Remove labels with nail polish remover)
  • Sharpie
  • Exacto knife
  • Scissors
  • Sand paper (optional)

Recycled bottle cat container is a simple craft! Easy repurposed shampoo bottles turned into cute kitty cat containers.

  1. Start by drawing a line for the head and ears with your sharpie on the front of the bottle.
  2. On the back, draw the cat’s tail.
  3. Carefully begin cutting out the cat’s ears and move towards the back towards the tail.
  4. Cut as much of the bottle away from the tail with the blade, then use scissors to shape everything nice and neat. If the edges are too rough or sharp, sand down with sandpaper.
  5. Wash out any extra product from the bottle and clean any pen marks.
  6. Draw a cat face and you’re done.

What Should You Do With Your Cat Container?

Here are some fun ideas for how to use your new kitty cat containers:

  • Hang in shower to hold razors or face cleaner
  • Use as a planter
  • Hang on a wall for decor
  • Pencil holders
  • To store headphone and phone chargers

Make a space just for your kitty litter box from a large storage container. Not only is your cat’s space spruced up and hidden from view, but you will eliminate the mess. It’s a win win for everyone!

I was very excited when Tidy Cats asked our cat Apollo to be an ambassador for their new Tidy Cats LightWeight with Glade Tough Odor Solutions Clean Blossoms litter! This heavy-duty lightweight litter has the same serious odor-fighting power that you expect from Tidy Cats in an amazingly pleasant floral scent. It smells like spring and is just what I need!

Here’s my problem and why I am excited about nice smelling cat litter… Apollo, is a VERY fancy feline. If you pet him, he will clean that exact spot of fur. He turns his nose up at messes like no other cat I’ve ever had. We laugh at how he is a five star cat and the king of the house! Our cat is so fancy, that even getting his paws in the kitty litter is beneath him. Therefore he prefers to poop right next to the litter instead of in it! Argh!

I’ve tried everything to remedy his issue with the litter box, such as using two cat litter boxes, one for #1 and one for #2. Well, that worked a few times as long as I cleaned his litter out right after he does his business. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

It’s a constant battle to get Apollo to use the kitty litter. Obviously he could care less…

The quest to get my cat to go poo in his kitty litter box will hopefully end now! I’m excited to try the new Tidy Cats LightWeight with Glade Tough Odor Solutions Clean Blossoms to improve not only the odor in my bathroom where I keep his litter, but to hopefully find something fancy enough for him. I think Apollo will really like the Glade scent as well as I do, because he’s fancy like that!

I’m proud to introduce my new DIY Cat Litter Box Holder!

A DIY Cat Litter Box Holder is a simple homemade way to hide a kitty litter box.

If you have a cat too, I hope you enjoy this easy DIY idea for your home!

What you’ll need to make a Cat Litter Box Holder:

  • Large storage container big enough to hold your litter box
  • Cat litter box
  • Cat litter box liners
  • Tidy Cats LightWeight with Glade Tough Odor Solutions Clean Blossoms
  • Contact paper
  • Tools: Jigsaw and Drill
  • Optional: Kitty litter mat, kitty litter cleanup kit and battery operated light

First I used a jigsaw to cut a rectangle shape in a large plastic storage box, big enough for him to walk through.

I then added some contact paper liner on the bottom of the storage container and put the cat litter box inside full of nice smelling Tidy Cats LightWeight with Glade Tough Odor Solutions Clean Blossoms.

I added a battery operated light and new clean up kit. Then decorated the outside for my very fancy cat!

Next, I drilled ventilation holes in the lid over the area that covers the kitty litter. I made a cat shape for my box!

You can add the lid to the box or take it off.  Putting the lid on it when guest come over is a great idea to hide the litter. The storage box I found has wheels on the back, so I can move it around the house anytime!

Using Tidy Cats LightWeight litter makes it easy to move the litter as well.

Since Apollo was curious, I tested it out my new DIY Cat Litter Box Holder by putting on the lid and turning on the light.

Wish me luck!

To celebrate the new release featuring nearly an hour of bonus content that includes three hilarious mini-movies, I was asked to come up with a fun pet party idea that would provide you some inspiration for a family movie night. The Secret Life of Pets is a comedy about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day.

I’ve always wondered what our cat, Apollo was up to when we’re not around. I truly think he just sleeps, but you never know… he could be having his own pet party!
