Looking for Cat Scratching Post Plans?
On this page I give a quick review of The Best Cat Trees eBook.
This great book is very comprehensive and has a number of plans for making a cat tree. It is targeted towards the beginner do-it-yourselfer, but of course all handy persons will find it invaluable.
The Cat Tree Plans Book contains over 120 pages and 280 pictures and diagrams. It has been extremely well written and presented with very detailed and easy-to-understand instructions.
There are a few basic details you need to learn, to ensure the cat trees you build are very strong and will stand up to the harsh treatment from your cat’s claws.
Often when cats “get the zoomies” they will hit their scratching post on the run, and land on it fast, so you need to make sure it is very stable and sturdy.
Cheap Scratching Posts Don’t Last
A lot of the cheaper scratching posts you can buy simply do not stand up to the demands of an active cat for very long. The joints are usually badly done and the fittings are cheap and poor quality. The joints and fittings need to be properly done to ensure your scratching post provides benefit for your cat for years to come.
The detailed diagrams carefully laid out in this manual, help to prevent mistakes and also save you a lot of time and energy. They are based on time tested construction principles and on arrangements that cats really enjoy, and therefore will use.
That is why it is so great to learn how to make a cat scratching post yourself. Once you have this knowledge, then you can go on and mix and match the plans in the book to come up with your own wonderful and unique designs.
If you have been looking to buy a cat scratching post, then you will know that a decent one will cost anywhere up to $500 and sometimes even more.
So by making it yourself, not only are you saving yourself a lot of money, but you can design your cat tree to fit in with your home and your furnishings. You will probably be able to make a much bigger and fancier cat tree than what you would be able to afford if you bought one brand new.
You can also get most of the construction materials for next to nothing, so you can really go wild and experiment! I am sure that your kitty will love to help you while your are putting the cat tree together for her too 🙂
