If 'The Secret Life of Pets' Stars Were Really Crafters

Maybe your pets are just as crafty as you are!

We've all wondered — what the heck do our pets do when we are gone? Sure, it may look like they just nap all day, but what if they secretly can't wait for us to walk out the door? The movie The Secret Life of Pets, premiering in theaters July 8th, takes a look into the adventures of neighborhood pets. It got us thinking: What if these pets were actually closet crafters?

Max hates when his owner Katie leaves and wishes he could be by her side at all times. So, we're pretty sure he'd concoct a comfy dog bed out of her nightstand. The closer he is, the better.

It's no secret that Gidget has a crush on Max. She would probably build a doghouse in hopes they'd live together some day.

Ozone, the alley cat, isn't very friendly, and we're betting it's because he doesn't have a place to call home — or maybe it's the no fur thing. Either way, he'd probably love living in this DIY cat condo with his gang.

No, these aren't actual carrots, but Snowball isn't your average bunny. He would be all about these crispy rice treat carrots.

A bird's gotta eat, and Sweet Pea wouldn't think twice about stealing your mixing bowls to make himself a bird feeder.
