Cat climbing trees are also a good place to interact with your cat. Playing is easier in that you can do this standing up, as well as having the added benefit of the tree getting the claws and not your hand. The more 'places' your tree has, the more games you can get kitty to play. Cat climbing trees are an investment that will help save your furniture from industrious claws and add a new dimension to your relationship with your furry friends.
What You’ll Need : Tree Log – Recommend using a hardwood like Oak, Maple or Redwood with the bark intact. The log should be at least 2 inches in diameter and around 3 feet in length. We’re repurposing a Walnut limb that came down in a storm. Scrap Wood for Base - We’re using ¾-inch plywood at least 16 inches square. Just make sure it’s non-toxic and unfinished.
DIY scratch prepping screws - Center the log on the top of the base and finish driving the screws home until the log is secured. Your scratcher is ready for action. Consider placing gripper furniture pads on the bottom to protect the flooring in your home. DIY scratch attaching log - Initially, your cat may be tentative to the presence of this new element to your home. So be patient and reward to reinforce positive interactions until he or she gets the hang of it.
Sleep - How many times have you "lost" your cat inside your own home? They love to hide in tight, cozy, out-of-sight places. Often you find her in the same spot. A cat tree house will give her a place of her own. Many cat trees come with at least one "cabin", or enclosed sleeping area. Some come with hammocks or perches with edges for snoozing in the open. All are carpeted or covered in faux fur or faux fleece so they are cozy for your furry little friend. Some come with removable, washable plush beds or you can add one of your own.
