Feeding your cat is probably a routine habit you do every day. You might not even think twice about it, but have you ever thought about your kitty’s feeding area? Your cat might eat on the kitchen floor or on a small table, windowsill, or even a kitchen counter. Either way, you could probably use a Cat Placemat.
Of course you can run to the store and buy a ready-made pet food placemat. But even better, you can make your own DIY Cat Placemat for your beloved kitty.
Why would you want to make one when you can buy one? Because this easy DIY version is so simple and you can make the perfect size. Store placemats pretty much come in two sizes – the standard placemat size or bigger.
But many of us don’t need a standard placemat size for our cats because it takes up too much space. That’s why this DIY Cat Placemat is perfect. You can make exactly the right size you need and, even better, choose a design/decoration to match your cat’s food and water bowls or even your room decor.
This DIY Cat Placemat is a great way to give your kitty an established eating area and also protect the surface you place your cat’s food and water bowls on. While there’s no fancy rim or guaranteed water-proofness with this placemat, it’s simple, inexpensive, and does a great job!
How to Make a DIY Cat Placemat:
What You’ll Need:
Cut your cardboard box to the size you want. It can be square, rectangle, small or big.
Cut your shelf liner paper to match the cardboard, with enough room to cover the front, back, and sides.
Peel the backing off your sticky shelf liner (this is the one I purchased) and carefully wrap around the cardboard. It’s like wrapping a present with sticky wrapping paper.
One side will be the top of your cat placemat; you’ll want to smooth this side out nicely so it looks pretty. The underside is where you can fold in the ends so it doesn’t have to be pretty.
And that’s how you make a DIY cat placemat!
The shelf paper is easy to wipe clean and will hold up to water spills. If you let it sit in a puddle of water day after day, it will probably fall apart, but it should last for quite awhile under normal usage.
Pour your kitty a bowl of NEW Meow Mix Bistro and let them go to town. Your cat might not notice his or her new placemat, but at least you will!
Our cat, Josie’s, favorite food is the new Meow Mix Bistro Dry Cat Food. With real chicken or salmon and Bistro recipes, this is a cat food you can feel good about feeding your cat. It’s 100% complete and balanced nutrition with all essential vitamins and minerals our cats need, plus it’s crafted in the USA.
Like many cats, Josie is a rather picky when it comes to her food and she will often turn up her nose and walk about with her tail twitching if she’s not pleased with what we offer her. She also refuses to eat the bottom layer of food in her bowl – apparently there’s something wrong with it if it touches the bottom.
But Meow Mix Bistro Dry Cat Food?
Josie digs right in.
She loves this new food and even ate the food at the bottom! No more wasted food! Thanks, Meow Mix!
This is the look she gave me when I tried to get her to look up for a picture: “Why would you interrupt my Meow Mix dinner?!”
I also love that Meow Mix Bistro Dry Cat Food is affordable, even when you’re on a tight budget.
Meow Mix Bistro Dry Cat Food can be found at your local Walmart and will also be available on Walmart.com soon. For now, you can find out more about Meow Mix Bistro Recipes here.
