Cat tree for …..... the cat. I made this from 2X4’s and plywood. Got the plans from You get 6 or 7 different plans and I combined two of them to come up with this version. Bought the carpet at Home Depot. You need cheap carpet for this because it is thinner and easier to work with.

Hi Charlie,

This is a nice project and it looks like you have a satisfied customer as well.

Thanks for the post.

Yeah, nice job, most impressive that the cat actually uses it, or did you staple it to it?

thanks much. Lucky (the cat) really likes the tree. LOL no his isn’t stapled there. I was concerned he would ignore it after going to all the trouble to build it. Most of the time he sits in the top looking out the back door.

Very nice. I made a tree for my two cats. They love it.

Very nice. We still have two cats. I just lost a companion of 16 years last month.

Is the carpet glued down or stapled? I built one (without the benefit of plans) a long time ago for my cat and glued the carpet down which seemed to work fairly well but is coming loose some now. Mine was based around one of those cardboard concrete forms so glue was the only way to keep the carpet attached.

This is very nice, I made one just like yours for my cats. They don’t use it much but it’s better than them not using it at all. Nice work!
