How To Make A Super Easy Cat Tree That Your Feline Friend Will Absolutely LOVE!

October 11, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, Cats, How To

Step one: Find a branch

It all started when I brought this branch home from a local park that was devastated by high winds that downed a ton of trees. Ramon was immediately interested.

 

 

Step two: Debark

It was messy and a pain, but essential.

 

 

Step three: Sanding

Didn’t get it super smooth, just wanted to get rid of the really rough parts.

 

 

Step four: Find a base

A local guy dealing in reclaimed wood hooked me up with a huge plank of hickory to use as a base.

 



 

Step five: Secure branch to base

I simply drilled a few holes all the way through the branch and the hickory plank, then ran some sturdy bolts through.

 

 

Ramon’s first climb!

 

 

Step six: Find appropriate sleeping solution

I wasn’t sure what Ramon would like, but I tried a ferret hammock from the pet store and he loved it! It was decided to make a hammock. I also wrapped some rope around the branch on the way up for traction.

 

 

Step seven: Make a hammock (or get your mom to make one)

My mom made a new hammock and here is the completed cat tree. I’m still looking for the perfect counter weight for the base, but for now I’ve got my toolbox and bricks to keep the cats from knocking it over.
