New cat tree!

For a few weeks I've been wanting to buy Smudge a cat tree, cos his little scratching post and bed just isn't high enough for him to observe us all :p He's a nosy kitty! And he's getting so big he needs a place to stretch and scratch.

So I've just purchased this from PetPlanet (On sale for 38.99 instead of 70!)

Hopefully it'll arrive on Monday or Tuesday, so I'll need to post some pictures once its up! I hope Smudge likes it, but he loves being up high so I'm sure he will
It's 150cm, so just under 5ft tall
Is it sad I'm a bit excited haha?

It's not sad at all! I'm wanting a cat tree pretty bad. My brother is supposed to be making me one but I've still been looking online because I'm impatient!

Leah: PetPlanet, Zooplus and Amazon all have great deals on cat trees!! My budget was 50 and they all had some really good choices within my budget, you should have a look!

Gizmo: Hahaha I get excited over every little thing Smudge does!! My mum referred to me earlier as a 'neurotic cat owner' :p I'm so excited to get the tree and see him enjoying it!

We have a giant cat tree/apartment and I love seeing them use it. But cats will be cats and lay anywhere they please. I've noticed over the years that as the seasons change they shift around to different areas of the house depending on the season.

I've also observed that while we want them to lay in a fluffy/warm/soft spot they tend to love cool/smooth surfaces like on a cardboard box or glass top. All we humans can do is try to please.

Nice set up! Hope you get to get it! The cats will love it.

Basically I hate the way cat trees look in a house. I have one though and they love it. But I bought IKEA brackets and am waiting on my SO to build some cool shelves for the cats.

Wow, sure beats the pants off of our cat tree! I also paid way more even with the store's discount card, boo. I especially love that fabric hammock on yours, looks comfy for a kitty.

NOT sad at all that you're excited - I'm excited for you! And for Smudge!!!!

When we first moved into our own home (we purchased our house last July [2012]) the first thing I wanted to do was buy a cat tree for my kitties, and I did! Sophie is queen on that thing, and Ramona, too.. they are on it the most. When Boogey goes on it it's JUST to play and you should see how crazy he is on it. I can't even believe the thing doesn't topple over with him running up it so fast.. all 14lbs of him. LOL! It scares me! He chases his tail on the very top platform.

I want to get another, but they're expensive. So I'm gunna save up.

Danielle & the seven meowzers.
Eechy, Boogeyman, Sophie, Ramona, Luigi, Sampson & Henry.
