The exhibition of cats - it is always so interesting and beautiful that the spirit captures! Quite often attention to this or that contestant attracts not the cat himself, and not even the owner, and the place where the whiskers are striped. Of course, we are talking about the tent, or rather the exhibition tent of thefor cats. It is noteworthy that many breeders prefer ready-made designs, while it is very easy to do it on their own, which will please not only the pet but also the owner, and this tent will cost much less.
At this very moment, many owners will start shaking hands with shouts "how? For yourself? Why? You can buy! "Yes, you can buy, but in the whole range it is very difficult to find that single tent, which will emphasize all the advantages of the cats, will not restrict its movements.
If the choice still stops at a self-made tent, some measurements will be needed to help with the tent design:
- It is necessary to measure the length of a pet from the tip of his face( nose) to the beginning of the tail( coccyx).The resulting figure is the optimal length for the tent. Of course, such calculations are correct only if the pupil is already an adult and no longer grows. Standard width - 60 cm or 600 mm. The same parameters also have an exhibition table;
- Most often, the tents are square, so the height of the tent will be 60 cm;
The right choice of tent color will help to highlight all the advantages of a pet, show his coat in the best light and perfectly introduce the public. It is worth remembering that whipped-striped should look presentable and stand out. It is from this that you need to step back when selecting the background color. The ideal option for the frame will be plasterboard. This material is well wiped, it can be washed and it is not afraid of water.
It is very convenient to make a skeleton of their plastic water pipes, the diameter of which is 20, and connecting corners for them. It is necessary 8 pipes 60 cm long and 4 - 80 cm. You will need 8 corners. It's easy to connect, and the design will be quite light and simple.
As mentioned above, the advantage is better to give plashchevka. The fabric does not stretch, which only makes it easier to work with it. For selected frame parameters, you need 280 cm of raincoat fabric( 80 + 80 + 60 + 60).Usually the fabric is sold in rolls of 1.5 meters in width. Measured cut-offs in 3 m and divided in half so that it becomes 0.75 m.
One side is sewn so that the resulting section is tightly worn on the skeleton. All seams need to be carefully worked out, making pavers, otherwise the appearance of the tent is rejected. It should be remembered that at the exhibitions the viewers are carefully considering not only the animals but also the places where they are located. To one of the free holes is attached with a Velcro rectangle of dense PVC film - this will be the front part of the tent. Velcro located on top and bottom, and on the sides sewn lightning. Thus, the easy movement of the hand can completely remove the film - it will ensure its less wear.
Grid - the back of the tent. Its lower part can safely sew directly to the tent. Velcro fastens from above, and lightning on the sides. This arrangement of fasteners will help the owner to move the grid unobstructed as needed.
You can turn on fantasy, add bows, rucksacks, extra pockets to your pet documents or cosmetic accessories to the tent.
It is important that a suitcase has a comfortable lounger, so it is advisable to sew a kind of cushion( as it was written in this article).Only fantasy and a little free time is important here. The main thing is to think and embody, and then the pet, like the owner, will be on the high!
