Cat Tower
Posted June 08, 2007 at 11:58:17 AM by Bean
So I decided to make my cats a new tower play thingy. I have a bunch of 2x4's and 2x6's I got from Big Willis, some plywood, and a large amount of scrap carpet [BigD: insert wet-carpet beer joke here]. I've made a few in the past... my latest one was about 2 years ago, but it's been relegated to the bedroom corner.

My first pass at the new tower turned out pretty good. It lets them sit high and kind of over the couch, plus it has a hole in the top platform, a step, and the impotent parts of two common cat toys that our cats enjoy. The catnip was added to the step after I realized that the cats did not use the hole for passage, thus eliminating the need for a step and providing a handy spot for the catnip plant (I grew it from seeds). They seem to love it. Especially Pete. Here's the shot from the couch.

I'm planning a second pass to fix a few things, and I've got a new place to put it, but that'll be another blog.
