Wednesday in the Big Cat Tree

Kitties!


Many Cats have asked about the Cat Tree in the big bedroom.  
Here's the poop:

A squillion years ago (1999) Daddy saw an ad in the classified section of the local newspaper reading: "6-foot cat scratcher, $30." He had a hunch that this wasn't some kind of stripper-pole for Cats...so they piled into the truck and zoomed off to see this thing. And they saw the Best. Cat. Tree. EVAR!
 It was the deal of a lifetime. We love it.

 At any time at least one of us is in it.  On it, we're safe from the Sucky Monster; and Scouty will let Mommy approach him to give him treats. It's the stink scent of thousands of hours of  peaceful napping that makes this tree so special.  We wish we could tell you where it came from or who made it, because this is the best dang tree in the universe. It was one of the things we knew for sure was coming with us from Chicago to Las Vegas

It's the bomb, pure and simple. 

Happy Wednesday!

  1. I think that beats out the Lotus Tower, hands down!

  2. Teri loves this tree! We are green with envy, too! Teri says cat trees with those curved resting spots are fav's with us too and our small trees are very similar to yours, tree trunk posts so they don't encourage us to scratch 'upright' things like the arms of couches, hahameow. She never recommends trees with 'flat' resting spots, which is her only gripe with the Lotus! We have a tree similar to the Lotus and we use it to birdwatch but never sleep on it!

  7. Katnip Kitties,
    We think that tree was home made rather than factory manufactured. We've had several trees but all are gone coz they were flimsy. Yours look very sturdy. purrrr *giggles*

  8. You know what? That tree looks like it came from near Bilbo Baggins's house in Middle Earth. That's why I think it is the bomb.

    Most fall in love , I like the real tree..and it's amazing to know Since 1999..That 's big " Wow " for me ! and shipping from Chicago to Las Vegas...Smell must so gooooood !!
    I love every things in this tree..It look right and purrfect from the bottom to the top. I can see, you guys can get up top of the roof ( of cat tree ) as well, But not sure anyone use to get up there. Because those curved resting, I guess you need the circus skills : )
