A cat kennel is ideal for transporting cats when traveling abroad, on a short car journey or when you are going to the vet’s. That is usually where the usefulness of cat kennels ends. But what else can cat kennels be used for?
Alternative Uses for a Cat Kennel: Cat Paraphernalia
Do you have a hard time trying to find your cat’s catnip mouse toy? Does your cat regularly play with his blanket and then leave it in the hallway? Cats are playful and can easily lose their toys and other favorite possessions. Like children, cats can create a mess with their toys and others possessions. But if you use your cat kennel for storage, toys, blankets, canned and dry food and other items associated with your cat can be neatly packed away at the end of the day and then stored under the stairs, in a storage cupboard or in the garage.
Alternative Uses for a Cat Kennel: Excess Pantry Items
Stocking the pantry will help to ensure that you have all of the necessary food supplies on hand that you need at any given moment. But at times, people can overstock the pantry, making it difficult to access needed food items. If you have stocked your pantry to excess, you may wonder where to put extra food supplies. Extra cans of food and other food items that are securely fastened can be stocked inside an empty cat kennel. While this may sound like a strange place to store non-perishable food, it is a storage area that is often overlooked, but one that can still be used.
Alternative Uses for a Cat Kennel: Cleaning Supplies
Cleaning supplies can easily take over in the utility room, under the kitchen sink and in bathrooms. But rather than take up valuable storage space inside the house, why not use the empty space inside your cat’s kennel? Cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent and other household supplies can fit into a cat kennel and then be kept in the garage or shed. This will free up a lot of space that has been taken up inside the house. However, you must ensure that lids and caps have all been securely fastened, so that when the cat does need his kennel, he will not have to sit beside bleach or other residues that have leaked out. Whenever your cat needs his cat kennel, simply empty the contents and then replace them again when the cat kennel is no longer required.
These are just some ways that the wasted space inside your cat kennel can be put to use when it is not required to transport your cat to the vet’s or elsewhere.
