Pleasure your cat unexpected and pleasantA gift - a whole car! In addition to the fact that it looks cool, you can do it yourself. How? The architect Ruslan Kirnichansky tells the cat that he is a full member of the family and even society, that's why he needs his own car. The same as for people, only the car. The architect and design critic Ruslan Kirnichansky has done just that for his cat and will now share his experience. Ruslan Kirnichansky, architect: - I happened to an unexpected replenishment in the family: I was brought a cat. I could not imagine that cats are evil, but the fact that they scratch and bite seemed to me a myth. But any aggression is powerless before love. "I used to be angry, because I have a bicycleWas not, "- said the hero of the Soviet cartoon, and this phrase is often remembered by the owner, when he decided how to find a common language with the pet. Ruslan Kirnichansky, architect: - She began to sharpen claws about furniture, I bought her a special board - a scratching pad, but she was not interested in it. Probably, it was necessary to take that strange and terrible construction, which is called "house for a cat." But it is impossible to even look at these constructions, but I can imagine it in the interior of my apartment only in a terrible dream. How to be? Be resigned to the inevitability and give the furniture to the tearing of a cat? But I have an idea more interesting. "The cat is evil because she does not have a car," thought Ruslan and decided to make her a car. In one store there was an interesting package, inShe sold candy. I had to buy them all in order to get the packaging. Now the owner of a stock of sweets for six months ahead! To produce a "car" it will be necessary:

  • Plastic mold - car;
  • rope;
  • Liquid nails / silicone;
  • Furniture stapler;
  • insulating tape.

The main idea for a "car" is to makeToy-scratching, which will be interesting to the cat. The cat will be able to ride a "kotomobil", catch up with him and sharpen his claws about him. As an upholstery, hemp rope was chosen, which can be purchased at any construction shop. After the model was dismantled, with the help ofThe rope was fastened to the rope. A strong fixation is simply necessary, as the rope will be wound on the mold further. For durability, a silicone layer is applied to the surface of the model. Work with a sealant or silicone in gloves, and do not forget to ventilate the room - silicone in liquid form has a pungent smell until completely dry. The "car" should go, but in order toThe protector did not leave traces and scratches on the flooring, with the help of insulating tape "tires" are made. In addition, such a wrapper makes the move quieter, which the cat, no doubt, will appreciate. The lid of the model can also be decorated: the edging made of yellow insulating tape reconciles the red color of the lid with the color of the wheels. After applying a special acrylic paint with a luminescent additive "kotomobil" outside it will look like a thing made with love. In order for the cat to be interested in catching upCar, you can add to it antennas (tails), and inside the form put a few lumps of crumpled foil, which rustle when moving "kotomobilya", than attract the attention of a cat. The result: the cat is happy, the furniture is safe.
