Tell us about yourself!
Great job! Our cats still love it, hope you have lots of fun with it!
Sisal rope is certainly the favorite here too! As it gets fluffy after a while, I decided to mount a small piece of wood wrapped with sisal at the back and they use it often. Feel Free to upgrade my design as you wish, glad to give you a starting point

You are welcome! Please let me know how happy your cats are when you have built one! Good luck
Haaaaa yes that would be a huge kitty but the metric system is the standard here in the Netherlands so divide it by 2,5 please :-)
Thanks Jeanne! Always go from the worst cat scenario, I hope your pet will show her respect to you. Please let me know how your building process was, have fun!
Haha lol, you are right! We don’t have a dog but we have 2 ferrets, almost the same 😀
Thanks Alcheese! You could wrap de poles with sisal rope, or carpet ofcourse. I had an otter pole build years ago but the carpet I used produced long strings after a while. So choose your carpet carefully, I think you need the kind of carpet with short separate strings. And as Etoin suggests, staple them on the underside. I used normal staples with a staple gun. Good luck!
Getting Started With Electronics
Yes but they do a lot for us too 😃
Ofcourse you can add carpet, but since we wanted it to be neat I only added a small scratching piece on the back and some small blankets on the platforms. Thanks for your feedback!
