I just got this new cat tree for Herbert.
It’s less of a cat tree, and more of a cat barrel. I wanted it to have a small footprint and not be a hideous monstrosity, so it fitted the bill.
There is a comfy bed on top and three dens inside. The bottom two dens connect, and the top den is self-contained. There is even a fluffy mouse on a piece of elastic suspended inside, for hours of fun.
Trouble is, this cat tower is standard cat-sized. Not Maine Coon-sized. They fit on top OK, because they fold up really small. But they can’t get their great backsides and tails inside.
Still, it’s useful for storing toys and pulling bits of string through. And it’s covered in sisal so they can give it a good scratch, instead of the bookcase.
The reason I got it for Herbert is that he hasn’t really got a perch to call his own in the kitchen. Larry has the laundry basket, where he has his special cushion. Monty has the top of the bookshelf, where he likes to look down on us. And now Herb has his own cat tower. I really hope it will help to build up his confidence and stop him over-grooming.
Till next time,
