High style steps off the catwalk and into the doghouse in Pads for Pets. Featuring instructions for more than 30 chic and ingenious abodes and retreats for dogs, cats, mice, toads, birds, fish, turtles, and bunnies, this book is an invitation to update a primitive perch or antiquated aquarium. The Cat Scratch Fever wall hanging, for example, is a work of art that gets kittys claws off the sofa. The Orphan Sock Bed creates a cozy dog spot out of all those odd socks. And Flying into the Chapel turns an old guitar into a birdhouse worthy of Elvis. While the projects range from simple crafts to weekend projects, each is guaranteed to charm pets and pet lovers alike. Adorable, amusing, and definitely do-able, the animal abodes in Pads for Pets were created by pet-loving California architects, designers, and artists. Proceeds from the book benefit P.A.W.S.
