What should I make out of all this cardboard?

I just moved and unpacked, now I have an apartment full of flattened Borders boxes. They're all uniform size, so I was trying to some up with something to do with them (obviously the remainder will be recycled).

I have a cat, and was going to try to make some kind of kitty fortress, but Instructables' search function isn't that great. Any ideas? I have a 10 month old tabby and will have an abyssinian kitten in a few months.

    Build a castle and then move in. Claim the rest of the apartment complex as your rightful and God given lands and demand the residents swear an oath fealty and pay taxes.

    look up "cardboard rivets" on the internet. the Mr McGroovy site also has a bunch of project ideas on it. make a pirate ship for you and on the ship have a smaller castle for the cats.

    Cats LOVE boxes. Just pull out some scissors and duct tape and you can make a rather large kitty fortress. If the boxes are strong enough, put a second story on it.

    Cut through in layers and stack/glue; basically this allows you to create any 3-dimensional shape

    Came here to suggest this, at least for the extras after your project is done. Reuse is before recycle, after all.
