Step 6: Rope Sratcher
Using a flathead screw driver, wedge a gap between the carpet and the broomstick, what you want to do is create a space to slide one end of the hessian rope in. Once in I used my staple gun to try fasten the rope, it wasn't super-effective! But still did the trick. I would suggest maybe using a glue gun instead.
Wind some rope up the stick clockwise, then push the rope down to compact it, periodically grip the roped area of the broom and rotate clockwise to tighten. Repeat this action till you reach the top.
When at the top, put the screw through the middle of the rope and fasten with the drill. I left about 150mm of rope with a knot in it as a dangle toy for her to play with. This is optional.
If you don't want the dangly bit and want to cut it just in front of the screw, I suggest using a bit of hot wax to stop the end from fraying.
Reattach the pvc elbow, hammer into place and boom! your cat can be stupidly content till it finds your curtains again.
