How to Build a Cat Climber



Cut one of the 4×4” posts in half using a handsaw.,
Cut a piece of carpet large enough to cover all, but about a foot of each 4X4” post.

Use a staple gun and staple the carpet tightly to each post by placing a staple every inch along one side of the post.

Measure and cut out a piece of carpet to cover the top and sides of the 2×3 sheet of thick wood.

Staple this piece of carpet to the thick wood.,
Cut two 1.5×1.5” pieces out of the thin sheet of wood.

Cut four strips about 3×1.5” from the left over section of the thin sheet of wood.

Measure and cut out pieces of carpet to cover each of the pieces from Steps 6 and 7.

Staple these pieces of carpet and wood together.

Hammer the carpeted 3×1.5” pieces to one of the carpeted 1.5×1.5″ pieces around the edges to form an open box.

Wrap the rope around the sections of the wood posts that do not have carpet on them.,
Measure and cut two pieces of carpet for the PVC pipe.,
Glue the carpet onto the PVC pipe and let it stand for 30 minutes-1 hour.

Nail the posts to the base by nailing from the bottom of the base.,
Screw the PVC pipe in between the two posts using a drill.,
Nail the 1.5×1.5″ with the 3×1.5″ pieces on the edges to the posts.,
Nail the flat carpeted 1.5×1.5″ wood on top of the taller post.

Once you make sure the structure is sturdy, add toys that can hang from it for more appeal to your cat!

,,,, This will be the base of the Cat Climber.

,,,,,, As you wrap the rope around the post, staple on every other side to make sure it is tightly connected to the post.

, One piece will cover the inside of the PVC pipe and the other will cover the outside.

,, Put the posts on opposite corners of the base. This may require about ten nails per post to make sure it is sturdy.

, This should require about 2 or 3 screws per post.

, Place one corner on the top of the shorter post and the side of one of the edges along the taller post.
