People Are Transforming Vintage TVs Into Cozy Beds for Their Feline Friends via My Modern Met

Cats enjoy sleeping in enclosed spaces—it’s why they love to snuggle in a good box. But while cozy, the cardboard containers are lacking in style. If you’re looking for something that’s more quirky than the conventional shipping package, tune into this quirky trend in feline bedding. People are upcycling retro television sets—think from the 1960s–and removing their components to replace them with all the cushy comforts of a cat bed. The result is a comfy spot for a feline to nap in that doubles as a playful piece of home decor.

This is one kitty creation that’s easy to DIY, and you can find directions online via the Instructables website. There, user davee930 shares how he made a TV cat bed. The first step is to find the television you’ll want to use. Scour your favorite places to find vintage furniture (like Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace), or visit a local antique shop. Once you have a television set, you can then disassemble it—making sure that you discharge its electricity first. (One simple tool will help you do that.) After the TV is hollow, you can decorate it with paint, wallpaper, or a patterned fabric to fit your style.

A bunch of Amazon kids shows are now free even if you’re not a Prime member via TechHive

March 23rd, 2020 Comments off

Attention parents with school-aged kids who have way too much time on their hands: Amazon has opened up 40 of its most popular family shows to stream for free to all, meaning you don’t need to be a Prime member to enjoy them.

Among the titles available are full seasons of Amazon animated originals such as Bug Diaries and Pete the Cat, as well as older fare including Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street and Just Add Magic. Additionally, PBS Kids has taken down the Prime paywall for much of its content, so shows such as Arthur and Caillou are now free. You can browse the full selection of titles on a dedicated page, but it’s unclear how long the offer will last or whether new shows will be added over time.
