My cat now stays in my yard all day!

How to keep your cat in your yard? My cat was sleeping in other people's bushes all day long but not any more. I made a cat tent and she sleeps in it all day!

How to make a quick cat tent:

Purchase at least two small folding trellis, I got these at Lowes, they are 29" high:

place burlap over and you have a cat tent!:

and it's easy to move, fold and store! You could also grow plants on it but I like moving it

Good idea, especially that the cat likes it. The only suggestion I would make would be to have a small opening in the back of the tent as an "escape" door, in case a stray dog/cat/coon happened along and went after her in the tent. Position it so that the front is not facing into the prevailing wind that day, so there isn't a draft blowing thro.

Cats like their own personal spaces.
