Sophie’s new kitty tree all set up

with 3 comments

This kitty tree is extremely well made and well designed. It does help to have two people assembling it, just for discussions of the assembly diagram, which holes should get dowels, etc. The 3 pair of braces are each different, because each pair must fit a particular curve of the upright piece. Excellent quality fasteners, and you can disassemble it if you’re ever so inclined. Actual wood, not particle-board (cf. Ikea, which I’m told is Swedish for “crap”).

Now Sophie can easily get on top of the hutch and, more important, can get down without doing a face-plant.

Photos will follow in time.

The Wife just called to report that Sophie, not the smartest cookie in the jar, is VERY slowly figuring out the kitty tree, and how to get up it, etc. Lots of decisions and rests for pondering.

  1. There are many decision points. And to get up to the top level, she kind of does a belly flop onto it from the step below, with her paws over the edge to hold on, then pulls her legs up one at a time. Pretty cute. She loves the curved shape of the top, and she really likes the no-pile carpet covering – very good for scratching. She’s on top of the hutch now, exhausted by the mental effort.
