symphonicity: Hi there, could you please detail the materials you used for this? size of
the platforms, height of the post etc? I want to make something similar for
my lazy 6yo cat. :-)
Mario Chui: i love your cat!
RedSwoo: @manoirdaisy Thanks for the comments. The fabric is a cut off from a sheer
curtain. She used to like lying on/against it when it was hanging from the
curtain pole a bit like a sideways hammock. Got to be careful tho. Thanks
pedrokz: Great thing you builty her, she will love being able to watch out the
window. Mine misses all the wooded view where used to live now he just
stares for birds in my fenced back yard.
Nurul Q: What's her breed... CUTENESS OCERLOAD!! ↖(^ω^)↗
Nurul Q: Thanks
RedSwoo: She is a Maine Coon. 3 years old now, quite a bit bigger. She jumps to the
top now. The lower platform has been relocated much higher above the
climbing post for extra difficulty and a higher view.
catsfordummies: That's great. I have a commercial one, but it is so wobbly. I was thinking
of buying a more sturdy one, but you just gave me an idea. I will make one!
I have a couple of broken fence posts outside, so I can make the tree out
Sonia: <3 so cute! ;)
MerrimacVI: Nice job on the post and the shelf! And whatta pretty cat!
Kacie Hoffman: She's ADORABLE!!! Great job on that, you got a lucky kitty!!
RedSwoo: @nekcr0 Thanks! Now that she is older she can just jump straight to the
top, so I have added an additional platform even higher!
manoirdaisy: That's great, was told about the toy stuffing by a vet so tend to warm
people just in case--I know how quickly my dogs can shred a toy!
Nurul Q: OVERLOAD
RedSwoo: @seventhwave87 Hi, some of the materials are in the video description. I
think you can still get posts like these in B&Q. The main post is 120cm
Height, 17cm width, 10cm depth, with a large base. The platforms(47cm w,
42cm d) are made from old shelf units which are ply wood, then carpet off
cuts are glued onto the platforms and folded around the edges and stapled
tight using a staple gun(has lasted very well so far, no signs of wear)The
lower platform is 80 cm in height. Good luck with it!
Janice Robertson: Good job. You cat is beautiful and it's good to see her enjoying her
bandoheme: Nice job and inspiring to me on my project. Thanks!
karenergy: she's adorable! Great post
manoirdaisy: What is the white fabric (?) at the base of the lower tower? Just be
careful in case your cat tries to eat it. Toy stuffing, if ingested and
then mixed with the gastric juices, can become a semi-solid mass in the
stomach. beautiful cat & great climbing posts.
Susan Szabo: beautiful cat. Very unusual ears she almost looks wild.
MrAGzoR: my cat training base cat Zetas )))))on my page
Kimisha Ibrahim: She's beautiful.
RedSwoo: ahah, awesome. Yeah the ones you buy are really wobbly this is one of the
main reasons I built this one. to make it really strong, be sure to have a
fairly large base and if possible attached to a wall up high. I think fence
posts work work really well, my previous cat used to use one of our fence
posts as a scratch post, he loved it.
