We love it when we find something cool on Pinterest. Take a look at this classy chaise lounge!

We loved it so much we tracked down its owners and asked permission to share the photo with you.
Get this: its creators can be found at! 

Seriously - you just gotta love a website named Evil Mad Scientist.

And check this out: Evil Mad Scientist has posted instructions on how to make your very own chaise - at this link here - for free. It doesn't get any better than this.

(oh, and Allie says to tell you they look FAB in PINK. Not that she'd know...our cardboard is brown just like yours.)


Congratulations to the Winners! has spoken, and the two winners who will receive a copy of the book, "Cat in an Alien X-Ray" courtesy of Tor Publishing are:

Flynn of Eric & Flynn's Adventures


Nerissa of Nerissa's Life

We know you'll enjoy your new read!


  1. That is so cool and cheap to make. Congrats to the winners xx0xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  2. That is cool and we like the idea you can make it yourself. Gonna go take a look at the site. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. That is SO clever!!!
    We're going to try it...and we LOVE that website too!
    : )

  4. wow...we wonder if "all thumbs" mom could figure that one out.

  5. Wow that is one cool chase...I wonder if...and concats to the winners!!

  6. Wow I won! Thank you so much!! I will get mum to email our address.
    That chaise lounge looks good. I wonder if I can get mum to make me one.

  7. If my human tried that, I cringe at the thought of how it would wind up looking!

  8. That's a cute lounger and it is cool that our humans could make it for us themselves, but we know Astrid would have teeth holes all over it and have it shredded in no time. Might we suggest a nice comfy pillow atop it for ultimate cat comfort. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  9. What a cool idea and that's so kind of them to share the instructions on how to make our very own lounger...for FREE!
    Congratulations to the winners!

  10. Ce fauteuil est parfait. ronrons d'Opale et Sonye

  11. That is so cool! And a very fancy upgrade to a regular ol' cardboard box for the high class cat.

  12. Say - I'm lovin' that chaise and my Dad actually believes (haha)he could make it for me. Heaven only knows what it will look like when he's finished...probably a WWII Tank.

  13. Shoot! We just threw out a big box ... it would have made a GREAT chaise lounge!

  14. Awesome chair! We might have to make one of our own. Concatulations to the winners!

    Dunkel, Smokey, and Vito

  15. That's a very clever DYI lounger! Concats to the winners. What a great prize.

  16. That is cool! I have GOT to get my human to make one for us!

  17. If my Human tried to make that thing, there'd be blood all over it. Just sayin'. 'Cause prolly she's have to use a box cutter or something and her track record is not too good with sharp things.

  18. Though that thing does look cool I can make a comfy spot out of just about anything around this place!

  19. Love this lounger and we will be meowing at dad till he makes us one
    Thanks for the info on the new book too
