If you want to make a cat tree for your large cat then there are a few things that you will want to know about. I used to love it when my cat was smaller and spunkier than it is now. He used to jump around all over the place and chase everything around. Once he got bigger however, he got a little bit lazier and I needed to find a way to get him the exercise that his body was used to getting. I am very attached to my cat and want to give him the things he needs. I also want to save my furniture from getting scratched up and my curtains from being torn down, so that is when I got the idea to get a cat tree for my cat.
When I walked into the pet store in my neighborhood there was a few different cat trees to choose from. However, the prices they were charging were outrageous! I love my cat and all but I can not afford to pay a couple hundred dollars for a piece of cat furniture. I was a little bit bummed as I walked into my house and thread my keys on the couch. My cat must have felt what I was feeling because for once he did not go chasing after them.
That is when I got the idea that I would go online and see how much a cat tree was. The prices I found were just a little bit lower or the same in most cases, so I still could not afford to buy one. I was even more bummed now because I really wanted to have a cat tree for my cat to play on and get some exercise on.
I kept surfing around the web for a little while longer trying to find coupons and other ways to save money on cat trees. I looked up "discount cat trees", "cat tree sale", and other terms but still had no luck. That is when I found a website that could help me to make a cat tree for my big cat.
At first I thought there was no way in the world I was going to be able to build a cat tree, but as I started reading the cat tree plans I received it I realized that it was a little bit easier than I thought it would be. I read through the step-by-step instructions and looked at the pictures that showed me what each of the steps was supposed to look like, and as I did I started to get more and more confident that this was something I could do.
After I finished reading the first plan I realized that it was a tree for a smaller sized cat, so I skipped through to the pages that had the one I was looking for. This was a big cat tree that I could build for my cat. It stood 5 feet high, had carpeting, and had 2 scratching posts that my cat could use to sharpen his claws on. I was psyched now! Then I started thinking about the cost of the materials.
I figured that it must cost a lot of money to be able to make a cat tree because they sold for a lot of money everywhere I looked. I was pleasantly surprised when I found a section in the book that showed me ways that I could save money on the materials that I needed. It even told me about some things I could use that I already had lying around my apartment. Now the excitement was too much to contain and I was ready to get started immediately.
When all was said and done it only took me a few hours to make a cat tree for my large cat. After I gathered all of the materials I needed and started following the directions, it was a breeze. I actually had a lot of fun doing it, and I know that it is something my cat will love for years to come. If you have a large cat like me and want to be able to build a tree that is large enough for him to play on then I suggest building your own cat tree. You will be able to save a lot of money, the plans are easy to follow, and you will have a lot of fun doing something for yourself and for your cat.
