Often times a sisal
cat tree is the first thing that springs to mind when you decide you want
something for your cats to climb on.
You know your
kitties need exercise to stay healthy.
And climbing on a cat tree is the perfect thing to keep them stimulated,
in great shape and out of the vets office!
They also need to
scratch on something and if you don’t give them something appropriate they’ll
select something for themselves. When
this happens it’s rarely something you want them to be scratching on.
Let’s Face it, there
are lots of advantages to making or buying a sisal cat tree.
- Sisal rope is
readily available and inexpensive.
- It’s easy to wrap
around a fence post or tree branch.
- Cats love to scratch
- You can make it
conform to most any shape
- Super easy to
replace when it gets worn.
If you’re not sure
what sisal rope is take a quick peek at it over here at Amazon. You can order it online very cheaply and can
also usually find it at your local hardware store.
Also, it’s something
we see on cat furniture all the time and no one wants to reinvent the wheel
when they don’t have to. Sisal rope is
much easier to work with than carpet, too.
Not that carpet is
difficult to work with when you have a guide… but who wants to
work harder than they need to, right?
Cat Tree Building
Tip… When first putting on or
replacing the sisal rope be sure it’s pulled VERY TIGHT as it stretches a
little over time. I also suggest gluing
as you go (I used hot glue because it cures quickly and is non toxic).
One drawback to a
sisal cat tree is that as the cats scratch on the rope it disintegrates a
slowly and can leave the little shredded bits on the floor at the base. This is very easy to vacuum up but you should
be aware this while deciding what is the best kind of cat furniture for you and
Whether you plan to
simply cover a tree branch in sisal rope or build an elaborate carpeted cat tree with adding some sisal wrappings to the support posts, this versatile
material is a winner for your diy project.
