Look what I just got on eBay for the cats to have in our new apartment!

A floor-to-ceiling cat tree! Here's the eBay link, as for some reason I cannot hyperlink...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ME:B:WNA:US:12

Oh, I hope it's stable, hope it's stable, hope it's stable...



Think they'll like it? I mean, it isn't exactly a WHEEL or anything, but they can literally run up the wall with this.

::: goes off muttering to herself something about being a crazy cat lady, there must be a name for it, like it's a disease or something :::

Your kitties should love it! I had one for my Molly (RB). She used it all of the time! I had to get it to keep her from climbing my curtains. Mine has been outside in the shed for a while, and I just brought it in for my kitties now, but it isn't as stable anymore. They don't like to go to the top.

Mine was very stable as long as it was inside. I think the humidity and such outside ruined it, but if yours is new, your kitties should LOVE it!!

Congratulations!

Maybe I should look on there....

very nice! i think they'll like it - & since it attaches to the floor & the ceiling, it should be very stable, as well!

Awww...I think they will love it! That price is pretty good so I hope it works out for you and for your babies. I think if you can provide for them and spoil them, then there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. They deserve it.

I have flat ceilings at the new place, plan to use it in a corner and support it by attaching it to the wall.

I was looking at it for ours... it's perfect for a corner, but I was worried that it wouldn't support our cats, especially given that they're lunatics and BOUND and LEAP on it. I wonder if adding extra support will do the trick?

Well, for example, looking at that base piece alone, I KNOW I'm going to have to attach that to a wider, thicker base. Home Depot is around the corner and I have very handy guy friends.

I ordered the one that has two sisal posts, and think that if I attach some sort of shelf support to each of the perches so that they are each supported by the wall, that should provide the stability I need to allow for 9-pounders Penny and Ginger and the heavyweight fluffball furbeastie Ferris to be able to run up it or leap off of it and have it stay in place.

I'm looking forward to getting moved out of this place and settled into our new one!

speaking of fluffy, fur-beastie Ferris - are you still planning on the lion cut for him?

I'm not sure the shelves themselves would need support.. our shelves did just fine without extra support, although, some of those were held by posts in the middle not on the edge. I'm more worried about it tilting overall, given the size of the base and I'm not sure how sturdy the ceiling piece will make it... I've got two whacko Bengals, one of which is a kitten and still gaining (currently about 8-9 pounds) and one of which is easily 12, and I'm thinking more like 14. The Mau is a bit crazy too and weighs around the same as the small Bengal, so, it's going to take a beating. I figure this crew will wear anything out in a matter of a year or so, but I want to make sure it won't tilt over on them. I'm not quite handy enough to figure out how I'm going to properly brace it. It's a great buy, though, and I'd love to get one for them.
