An Old Cabinet From The Thrift Store Was Transformed Into The Coolest Pet Accessory

Are you ready for a purrfect Saturday project?

Litter boxes are naturally unfortunate. Let’s face it, who wants to have a cat’s waste just sitting around out in the open?

But putting a litter box in a tight space can be a real drag, too. A small room with the litter box is basically useless, plus the smell will permeate that small space. However, one clever DIY master decided to build their feline friend a litter box condo that both contained the smell, provided privacy, and looked adorable.

They were lucky enough to find this cabinet at a thrift store.

But if you want to copy this project, you can use any kind of cabinet (new or old). The cheaper, the better, though!

It was going to be the home for their kitty’s litter box, so naturally, some things had to change.

They removed part of the cabinet they wouldn’t need.

They also gave the old thing a new paint job.

And made the cuts necessary with a saw to create a cat-sized door.

Then they bought some new handles…

And set it out to dry.

Then they put the litter box, food, and shovel inside.

Look at that organization!

It looked great, even though a litter box was hidden inside.

Somehow, they made a litter box adorable.

Israel Approves $46 Million Plan To Absorb European Jews Following Terror Attacks

The Israeli Cabinet on Sunday approved a $46 million plan to finance the arrival of thousands of Jewish people expected to immigrate from Europe, following a number of anti-Semitic attacks on the continent in recent months.

Just hours after a gunman in Copenhagen, Denmark, fatally shot a man outside a synagogue as part of twin terrorist attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country was ready to welcome Jews “home.”

“I would like to say to all of Europe’s Jews, and Jews everywhere, Israel is the home of every Jew,” he said in a Facebook post.

Under Israeli law, Jewish immigrants to Israel are entitled to financial support. The multi-million-dollar package approved Sunday will finance the arrival of what the government estimates will be thousands of Jews from Ukraine, France, and Belgium.

While much of eastern Ukraine has been left devastated by civil war, France and Belgium have been the target of anti-Semitic attacks in recent months. In Paris last month, four Jewish men were killed inside a kosher supermarket by an Islamist gunman, while four people were killed at a Jewish museum in Brussels in May 2014.

“This wave of attacks is expected to continue,” Netanyahu told his Cabinet. “Jews deserve security in every country, but we say to our Jewish brothers and sisters, Israel is your home.”

However, Netanyahu’s comments were met with anger by Copenhagen’s chief rabbi, Jair Melchior.

“People from Denmark move to Israel because they love Israel, because of Zionism. But not because of terrorism,” Melchior told the Associated Press. “If the way we deal with terror is to run somewhere else, we should all run to a deserted island.”

On Sunday, Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt lay flowers outside the synagogue where a security guard was shot dead.

“Our thoughts go to the whole of the Jewish community today,” she told reporters. “They belong in Denmark. They are a strong part of our community, and we will do everything we can to protect the Jewish community in our country.”

Netanyahu is in the middle of a re-election campaign, with elections scheduled for March 17.
