Cat tree in living room

6-foot cat tree

 

Indoor cats need to climb. Providing them with appropriate cat furniture will make them and you happy.

 

Without a cat tree to climb; a curtain might be a great alternative. Although I did have a cat that raced to the top of my living room curtain. She walked across the rod, while the others cats watched her in awe. Luckily they didn’t find it necessary to follow suit.

 

Back in 1980 I designed a cat tree to fit the space that was sandwiched in between a bookshelf and an organ. We went to carpet stores to see if we could acquire a few remnants to put our design to life. I made 4 cat cutouts to adorn our cat tree. With bits and pieces we configured a multi colored tree. With a very fine woven carpet, we were able to have enough to cover the bottom (to protect the floor when sliding back and forth) plus there was enough to cover the back and two sides.

 

The cat tree of 1980 still resides in our home and was always in the living room, even when we moved to a new house. Oh it has been re-carpeted many times over the years. The cats loved to scratch on it, destroying the covered post and also the top platform edges.

 

If you ever decide to make a cat tree or even recover one, do make sure you never used looped carpet. And for that matter do they real make much of that anymore? I’m sure there is some close looped pile, but still not advisable for cat trees. You don’t want your cat hanging by a claw, desperately trying to break free.
