Do you ever look at your pet and think: “Wow, you deserve to be royalty”? If so, you’re not the only one.
One cat mom went above and beyond by actually building a throne for her Maine Coon out of cardboard.
Elly’s cat, aptly named King Arthur, is a 17-year-old Maine Coon. When it was time for Elly to make a new bed for Arthur, she got inspired by his very regal name and decided to make him a throne.
You might assume that a throne made out of cardboard wouldn’t be that fancy-looking, but don’t be fooled — this throne was inspired by the Iron Throne on Game of Thrones, and it looks totally legit!
Elly posted a photo of Arthur in his throne on Reddit.
She told Just Something that she used a cardboard box for children’s boots to make it.
“I was looking at this cardboard box, a shoe box for children’s boots that my mom had mailed me something in, and I was thinking I could make Arthur a new bed,” Elly explained. “I opened it up and it already kind of looked like a chair, so I thought I could make a throne, since we often call him King Arthur. And then I realized the best throne to make would be the Iron Throne.”
Elly added that King Arthur loves sitting and lying in his new throne.
“He is definitely the head of the house, so it’s fitting,” she said.
