We have a new cat tree! It was planned and created from scratch by my husband this week... with some help from me. I must say that in this exact moment in time, I hate sisal rope with a passion, and am still trying to pick the sisal fibers out of my fingers. (Yes, yes, I should have worn gloves when helping to wind the rope around the posts. Lesson learned for next time.)
So far, Bit is the one that has taken to the tower the most, with Annie in for a close second. Bit likes the "crow's nest" and they both like the little house with the circular doors. Jeff reports that they are upstairs playing "seige" with one another, with Bit inside the house and Annie attacking from outside.
Charlotte is trying to pretend that she isn't interested, and doesn't realize that we did see her rubbing her face on it last night.
The dogs seem to have no opinions about it.
Update: The foster cats love it, and seem to understand instinctively that this is a toy, while our own cats were a little confused in the beginning. Maybe they both had trees in their former homes? Or there was a tree in the colony room at the shelter?
