Bow chica meow meow! Check out this amazing computer pet bed the Greenmoxie team created for Theo Cat. It really couldn’t be easier to make. If you have one of these old iMac G3s lying around, all you have to do is carefully remove everything from the case to make a great bed for your pet.

Turn the iMac so that the back is facing you and then remove the two screws on the top of the case with a screwdriver. Pull out the screw in the middle that holds the small round plastic cover in place. Take off the plastic cover and set aside.

Next, remove the two screws that are on the panel under the plastic cover. Turn the iMac so the screen is facing you and pull on the three plastic locks near the bottom of the screen so that you can remove the outer case.

Now you can access and remove all of the components. Be careful to dispose of the inside of the computer in a responsible manner as there many be harmful chemicals and other substances that are bad for the environment. Take it to an electronic recycling facility near you.
