This is a fun little project that can be completed in an hour or two depending on what you have laying around the house. It's a self-petting station for your cats so that they can get a good back scratching while you're at work or away on vacation. I found the Ad while looking for toys to keep my cats active, I hate seeing them board. Here is a link to the original Ad; http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=3261+1897+26492&pcatid=26492
. As you can see in the Ad, they want $18 for this product. I made mine for about $6.
