Hi guys, I have a kitty that just won’t come out of my bedroom for fear of my dog. Even when I remove him so I want to make a gym that I can set up on my triple dresser for her to play on.
I don’t need plans (although that would be nice) but I could use a pic of any that you may have hand made or store bought I have a few ideas but would like others’. I don’t mind if it takes up the entire dresser.
Thanks so much
Rosemarie

It would take a big dresser but the lnk is to a Kitty Condo that I made for our cats and they love it. You cojld size it differently but they love running all over it, hiding in it, perching on top to keep an eye on us.

I’ve seen shelves hung high in the room that connect and make a type of Kitty highway.

CP – she dosen’t seem to like toys I have tried
TH – that is very nice I will keep that in mind it will fit easily on my dresser, actually I want it larger but i can add to this one, I book marked it.
Jim – I saw that kind of highway system on TV somewhere and liked it, I will remember that one too.
Thanks guys great ideas.

Have you tried a laser pointer for a toy? Every cat I’ve ever had loves chasing that little red spot around the room. The yougest of the 2 I currently have will try to run right up the wall if I get her going and run the beam across the floor then up the wall while she’s chasing it. For some strange reason they have all like to bat around the thin plastic ring from milk jugs that breaks free when you crack the plastic cap open.

I have done all that I just want a place for her to climb and get away from the thought that the dog will come and bother her, I want to make it tall and safe, but also fun to jumpa around thanks
