Pet and Play: A multi level pet home
IKEA item used: IKEA GULLIVER Changing table
The “Pet and Play” is a design using the GULLIVER changing table. It is easier to care for your pets when you have them sleep and eat in one place altogether rather than in different parts of your home.
This avoids a lot of mess and easy to maintain. This specific “model” was for a dog, a cat, a bunny and a fish.
Depending on what pets you have, you can easily adjust the needs of each pet by building panels over the GULLIVER changing table and adding more space according to their needs (eg: for their food in boxes or shelves to add a bunny cage or a fish bowl).
I added a small ladder for the cat and tied rope on the side for scratching etc.
A good idea that I did was name it our “Petshop” with a closed and open sign. This way kids know that when the animals are resting the Petshop is closed, and when it’s playtime it is open.
You can have a lot of fun styling up the changing table and creating a unique house for your pets and have fun naming your ‘building’.
