Shape the hangers so that they look like the above. Try to smooth them out evenly. The goal is that the two curves go gracefully from one corner to the other of your piece of cardboard.

You can also strengthen the cardboard with tape. Attach tape around the edges for more stability. What is really needed if you use a piece of cardboard with an inside fold.

The ground of the shelter for cat – drill a hole in each corner:

You can use the tip of the hanger to make the holes in each corner.

Make sure your holes are less than 1/2″ on each side and they are not too large.
