Home Made Cat Tree
well, Hubs and I are pretty handy, so we prefer to make a lot of stuff rather than buy it when it is an option.
For our anniversary, we decided on adding 2 more cats to the house (we are both very much so Cat People). One of them will be a Bengal. For about a month now, we have been "Bengalizing" the house, reading up on them, and deciding what we can do to make the house more suitable for a Bengal, as energetic and intelligent as they are.
Pared down my collection of houseplants to a select fer that will live mostly in one room the cats do not have access to (reptile room), and changed the doorknob for that room from a lever to a knob with a lock to prevent smart cats from gaining entry.
One of the things we wanted to do was add a cat tree. And do it ourselves, so we could make one that fit our house, specifically. We decided on a location, bought some carpet remnants pretty cheap, and some round wood platforms, and a few rolls of sisal. All of it cost about $40.
We will also be adding a hammock/canopy thingy, that will result in a cat walkway extending from the stairs, across the living room ceiling, to the cat tower, making a kitty highway. For now though, here is the cat tower. We ran out of Sisal, and have to buy a few more rolls. Will be carpeting one of the timbers, and putting sisal on the other (pictured)
