More Home Project Adventures: Cat Things
So we are bringing up two of our cats finally!!! It’s kind of a bummer that we can only have two in the apartment, but hopefully they will be a lot happier here.
The last week has been all about cat-proofing parts of the apartment and getting things that they need (or will hopefully like) - and I decided it would be brilliant to make a cat tree.
Uh. So far it’s been fun, but if anyone is curious I would say that the overall cost is probably about the same as buying a small cat tree THOUGH I will say I think mine will be more awesome. Because I made it with love and stuff.
Mostly it might be better because it’s a bookshelf so it has lots of flat, hard surfaces they will probably like. It’s not finished yet - I’ve spent three days gluing rope to one side. However please enjoy these unnecessary progress pictures.
This was the point in the project when I realized that 100 feet and 7 glue sticks were not enough. Time to go to the store
Items acquired! Also one of my coffee cups.
Turns out I still didn’t have enough glue sticks to finish so I had to buy more today. The total number of glue sticks required for 300 feet of rope was 88, by the way.
The most time-consuming part is done now! Which means I can move on to decorating it and making the shelves more cattractive! If y'all are curious, this is a 4-cube kallax shelf from ikea. The hammock on the inside is also from ikea (it’s a new product they make for the kallax shelf insert line). I’ve reinforced it with some fancy glue so it doesn’t collapse the first time somebody crawls in there (hopefully they will use it).
I’m so excited to have our kitties back, we’ve missed them so much!
