Our Axhayes home-made kitten playhouses!

Who needs expensive toys when a box can be just as exciting?

Kittens love playing and one of the easiest ways to make a fun place for them to explore is to give them a cardboard box.

If you get a bit creative you can cut different shaped holes in them to make doors and windows for them to run through or climb out of.

Here at Axhayes we have taken it one step further by labelling our boxes. We started off with a ‘mini bus’ then we had a ‘ickle shoppe’ followed by a ‘village pub’. When we realised that kittens were hanging out in the pub, we made a police station!  Our latest addition to Axhayes kitten’s village is a post office.

Here are a few photos of our handiwork!

We hope we have inspired you to create your own kitten playhouse!
