New cat tree

The new cat tree came in the mail yesterday so I stayed up last night to put it together. The cats were very helpful in the process. They kept checking the box to make sure I hadn't forgotten anything, they sat on the various parts so they wouldn't walk away, and Sully chased the screws all over the living room for me.

With help like this....

My only complaint about the tree is the perches are really too small for my "full bodied" lot.


They took to it right away. It was nice to see all three of them playing together.








I was proud of myself for putting it together myself. I only had one leftover part.

Wow! It looks great!

Your cats have obviously taken to it very quickly! They look real tinkers!

Congrats on putting it together yourself!
I admit I let DH do it when we got ours... our tree looks a lot like yours btw, is yours an Armakat too?


(Picture taken when we first got it, Isis and Mew were only 4 months old... now they are a lot bigger and still fit nicely on the perches, but I am afraid that they will have trouble if they get much larger down the line )

Even if you buy it off ebay? That's what we did, our tree cost only $15, but there was about $70 of shipping... all in all, $85 was still an awesome deal compared to pet store prices!

Just wanted to add that it's also wonderful to see how active and happy little Sully is - what a silly monkey

They look like they have moved right in and having a great time. Good job putting that thing together- I would never have even tried.

I that cat condo!

We're going to get one from from that same vendor off of E-Bay once we get moved. The BF isn't interested in getting a huge monster condo now and then having to move it along with the rest of our belongings in a month.

Speaking of which, that's coming up really fast. It doesn't feel real, yet!

Nini- my concern is that Nakie (you remember the cranky uncle, yes?) is 25 lbs. He's the size of a beagle, and I know he won't be able to fit on those squares. After all, those are for normal sized cats, not gigantic monster kitties like mine.

I wonder if there is a company that caters to big cats?

Adorable! I really want a nice tree, but just don't have the space.
