Elly and Steve are the human parents of Arthur, a 17-year-old Maine Coon cat. Elly is a redditor and she recently posted on the popular site her work. A majestic cardboard bed, inspired by the popular Iron Throne from Game of Thrones, that she made for her cat.
As expected, Elly’s inspiring work went viral. Asked from where this great idea came, the woman said she initially wanted to made a new bed for Arthur, using some old shoes box.
“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 told Just Something. “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 admits the Iron Throne perfectly reflects Arthur’s personality. And before all others, it was Arthur’s opinion that weight the most. And fortunately, the Lord of the house appreciated Elly’s gift because, as you can see from the photos, she put a lot of effort in her creation. Beside that it would have been such a pity if the result wouldn’t demand Arthur’s expectations.
“Arthur loves sitting and lying in it! He likes to rub his face in it. He is definitely the head of the house, so it’s fitting. We also have two large dogs, and they are pretty submissive to Arthur,” Elly said.
The couple declared themselves very lucky that Arthur is part of the family. “He’s 17 years old. He was my husband’s cat from childhood and we’re very lucky to still have Arthur in our lives,” Elly said.
However, must admit that Arthur is lucky to have such loving and caring parents as Elly and Steve. Take a look at Elly’s incredible work!
