This is how ya woo a cat lovin’ woman, lol.
We have a four year old Airedale Terrier that has a strong prey drive. We also have a cat that takes no crap, lol, so this makes for near constant high speed chases around the living room.
I took some barn board pieces I had kicking around and made up a bunch of differnet sized platform type shelves that encircle the room. I know this isn’t for everybody, but I live on the fringe anyway and figured that I could always remove them again and putty the holes if needed.
This works better than a single cat tree in that the cat is free to move about around the room. Gilly, the terror, ...I mean terrier, gives up almost instantly once the cat is out of reach, lol.
To make things interesting for us (the viewers of “the Show”) I added some obstacles to the course, like a rope/plank bridge and a teeter totter. A book case I built fits perfectly in the corner and the cat walks on balance beams (large wood curtain rods) that stretch over the windows.
All in all, it seemed to work out pretty well for everyone.
