The Cat Ladder
Here's the cat ladder that I made for Brian's cats. It's made from a four foot tall step ladder and used 500 feet of 1/4" sisal rope. The carpeted pieces are parts of a 12" diameter cardboard concrete mold that I bought at a building supply store.
Build a Scratching Post
I built this scratching post about 8 years ago, which gets used so much I've had to replace the carpet 4 or 5 times since. The trick is to make the post evenly balanced on top and bottom so that it does not tip when used, because felines hate unstable platforms...

Rustic Cat Tree
