Cat Tree Blogging

I'm inspired by Caminante to share this photo from a few years ago. Caminante has a delightful photo of her dad's cat on the cat tree he made.

My housemate made a few cat trees. Here's one she made for our cats back in 2005.

I still think it's an awesome creation. It was more like a "jungle gym" than a "tree."

There were two things the cats seemed to enjoy about it. First, it had lots of texture: sisal wrapping the posts, some carpet pieces, some very soft fleecey bits. Second, it incorporated many dangly "toys" for their batting and killing entertainment. You just don't find those design elements in the store-bought cat trees.

In our 5-cat household, it was important that there be many places to snuggle. And, of course, it was important that there be one "high spot" for the "top cat" to inhabit.
