Bonita's Box...

Kelli at There's No Place Like Home is hosting Show & Tell Friday.

I'm so excited to show my newest project. This is my new storage bench in my laundry room. Isn't it nice?


It's not just any bench, it has a hole in it. So it's a holy bench.


I used the jigsaw (well my dad did) and drilled a hole right through the door. I also added weather stripping around the hole to finish it off. It's for my kitty, Bonita



Isn't she pretty?


I also have a dog...Rusty aka Rustolium.

He likes to eat kitty poo.

So that's why we came up with Bonita's box.

The bench is also great for folding laundry.


And it makes a great time out spot...


Thanks for visiting my show & tell today!

HOw neat!!!

GrumpyAngel said...

This is a funny post! A "holy bench" ---that made me chuckle. And the time out photo was awesome! Great show-and-tell!

Carrie said...

What fun! The bench is multipurpose for all...

Hootin' Anni said...

Wow....now I'll say, Bonita is one luck cat. I would've said that she is one lucky 'dog' but that didn't seem appropriate. And we had a dog a long time ago that sat and waited at the cat box for his 'snicker treat'. So, I know what you mean.

LOVE this whole idea!

Happy Show n tell day.

Darlene said...

What a great idea!!! Bonita is beautiful and a lucky kitty to have a private potty room...lol

That is too funny as a time out bench too....

Our dogs have always wanted kitty poo (YUCKY) so we have always kept a baby gate up across our laundry room.

Wow! What a clever little home you created for your beloved pet! And it's great that you have room for it in the laundry.

Bonita's Box is the greatest idea! And it certainly comes in handy for those little moments of misbehavior.

Fabulous idea.

Melissa Wertz said...

What a good idea! It is wonderful! I'd put that doggie on the time out bench as well for eating kitty poo...

Gattina said...

That's a wonderful cat house ! very chic ! Bonita must be happy in there and poor doggy has no dessert anymore, lol !

A Hint of Home said...

What a nifty idea. The bench has so many uses. (smile)

cindy said...

What can I say that already hasnt been said?!...Very clever!...and multi purpose too!..Have great weekend! ~C~

Shannon said...

How genius! Love it! I don't have any animals but if I did, I know what I would do! So creative. The pic of your dog and son are hilarious!

Girly Stuff said...

If I had a cat I would have this box...and it's convenient to hold a can of air freshner straight in the hole and let loose!

Deb said...

Wow that is a great idea. I don't have animals, but I'm sure keeping their things and especially the kitty litter box in there is much easier. Nice job and pretty ingenious actually.

Mabry's Gamma said...

Great post and love that idea for kitty litter, wish I had something like that when we had our cat. I hate cat poo and can't imagine why your pup likes it...yuck!

Love the pics of your animals and son, too cute.

Chris said...

This is genius! What a cute bench AND it serves such a hidden purpose. Great idea!

Carla said...

It doesn't get any better that this-holy bench-pretty kitty-poop eating beagle-dunch hat and all! Man that is neat! The hole is perfect-looks professional! And that dunch=I think I've seen that some where else before?

aj said...

Great idea! I would have liked one of those when we had cats. Love the picture of Rusty licking his chops! But ewww:)

Penless Thoughts said...

What a very clever idea!!!

Strawberry Blonde said...

Love, love, LOVE this bench. So, where did you find it? I think it's the best thing ever. Well, not ever, but pretty darn good. :)

So, is Bonita smart enough to know that this is her new potty spot?? Really, a great idea.

Poor boy in time out. That sight is all too common in my home.

What a great multi-task piece! I love the name Holy Bench. I doubt your son thinks it's holy though! LOL!

Oh my gosh! I absolutely love it.
Does kitty actually use it?
This is amazing. And I love the time out spot too.
Just absolutely too cute.
Oh my gosh! I do love it. I wish my kitty would be so cooperative.
I hope you have a Blessed weekend.

What a wonderful show and tell! I love Bonita's box...I would never have guessed what was inside. Daisy has a special fondness for kitty litter too...yuck! Oh, I love the time out picture too. Hehehe.

Love your great idea!--I love dogs,(and kitties too!), but they do have some nasty habits if you don't watch them.
Blessings to You!

I like this idea. I have seen similar ones for sale on line and had thought I'd like to have one. However, I bought one of those covered litter boxes and Smokey would not go inside it. He might have eventually but how would that work if I had to have one outdide of it, too. I hope Bonita uses hers. Maybe I'll try again when I move.

duchess said...

What a great idea. Our border collie Chase loves to eat poo too -that's why we trained our cat to to potty outside.

Twice as Nice said...

What a GREAT idea. We have two cats and a poo eating dog too!! I have been trying to figure out what to do. We have our litter box in the laundry room and I was thinking of putting a mouse (cat) hole in the door so the dog couldn't get in. WHY OH WHY do dogs want to eat the poo? Then my dog THROWS UP all over. How long did it take you to get the cat to go in there? What do you do for the odor?

nikkicrumpet said...

LOL I love the timeout photo...I bet he was saying "awwwww mom do I have to!!" The things we make our kids and pets do for our blog addiction LOL.

Love the bench! we need on of those, especially for the time outs! :) Jen r

ROXY said...

Wow, what a great idea. So ingenious! I should try that for my kitties. My Winnie also love to eat cat poopies:P
