I am a mess! But a happy mess!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I just won my bid for a super duper awesome cat tree on Ebay for my Mom's cats! I was shaking like a leaf and sweating and I really thought I was gonna get sick. I wanted that tree for them soooo bad and Mom said she'd pay for it and all.

Please, someone else tell me they get all worked up over stuff like that too!?!

Here's the tree: http://cgi.ebay.com/74-Deluxe-Cat-Sc...QQcmdZViewItem


I'll post pics of Pumpkin and the girls on it when it gets here! I think it's being shipped to my house first anyway. DH is gonna love cartin that over to my parent's!

DH and I have a whole system worked out for bidding. That helps a lot I think. We got a tree just over a year ago for our girls the same way. It just isn't quite as big as this one!

I'm a cut-throat e-bayer.

Don't get in my way, or I'll bid the pants right off of you!!!

Wow! Thats an awesome tree! Can I ask how much it was in the end?
I wish I was gutsy enough to bid on Ebay, but I'm always so nervous about it- plus, I've never done it before!

That is so cool! Your kitties are gonna LOVE it! Don't worry - you'll calm down soon enough. Just think about how excited the kitties are going to be!

I'm afraid I'd get addicted to it- so I'd rather not know how I'd rather have someone else bid for me, and I'll send them the money!

These are the ones I have they are not tall ones but there nice ones and the cats love them . I kinda felt with 8 of them they would turn it over if they all jumped on it together Easy to put together to

My final bid was $45, what I got was like $31.26 plus $75 for shipping.

I put in my zip code to see what it the shipping is and then we decided on a price to pay. I just bid a little bit to sorta get in the running, then I watch it and put in my big bid as late in the game as possible. DH did that for our other tree and we got it at a good price, though someone on here got one at an even better price. We've gotten a few things from e-bay over the years. I don't usually go on unless I'm looking for something specific. I have a paypal account to use for payment, and that's supposed to be pretty safe.

I may need to look and see if there's anything the brats would like , I buy those fuzzy mice grey black white, they don't like the colored ones I think I paid $8.25 and Da Bird for $4.25 refills for $2.95, those were good deals to ...

the Armarkat tree i got on eBay, that's how i did it, too. i checked shipping, decided my maximum price, & put down a bid that didn't go over that maximum once shipping was included. took about 3-5 tries to get a tree, but i got one. it's not that hard, Kenz - the tree was the first thing i ever bought on eBay. i've since bought shoelaces, a butter dish, some makeup & some bath items - you can get the twisted peppermint scent from bath & body works there even tho they don't have it in the stores anymore
