Nicely done video instructable! I used carpet on the bottom and added a top platform. On the top platform I used faux fur covering (and quilt batting underneath for softness) since that tends to be my cat's favourite sleeping surface.

Also, to entice my cat to use her new scratch post, I tied her felted catnip toy around the top to play with.
