Kitty Climbing Wall

Filed under: Uncategorized — myminizoo @ 1:18 pm

I am very good at thinking of projects that would be fun but not neccessarily so  great at executing them. Thats why I’m thankful that my very patient ( and handy) boyfriend Mike decided my latest hairbrained idea was a possibility!

The concept was a cat climing and perching wall for our two cats, Alaska and Sencha. They are forever sitting on our TV, on Mike’s desk, or pretty much anywhere else they’re not supposed to be. We thought it would be nice to give them a place they could climb without fear of harrasment!

I took my inspiration from this picture from http://ikeahacker.blogspot.com

 

And from this picture from Modern Cat Magazine http://www.moderncat.net

After several days of measuring, a visit to Ikea and some cutting we ended up with this….

  3. That looks like so much fun, and a great way to keep your cat out of trouble. Looks like you’ve been busy on your spring break…

  4. That’s really such a neat idea! I’d love to do something like that, but my walls are concrete on two sides, and the inner walls are flimsy.

    You guys did an amazing job.
