Cat Tree Plans For Under $10 Bucks?

If you've a active kitty cat that has a scratching problem then building a do-it-yourself cat tree...Using some cat tree plans you can find online is a really easy thing to do. One of my cats seemed to make it his goal in life to scratch up all of my furniture and shred the carpet...Until I made him a cat tree. I am not someone who's really handy at constructing things, but I also didn't want to spend a whole bunch of money either.

So I knew that I had to do something if I wanted to get my cat from scratching my furniture. I actually nick named him SHREDDER. That's when I got the idea to make a cat tree for my cat. I downloaded some really good plans online for under $10 bucks!

One of the thing that I was concerned with was once I was going to construct my cat scratching post was the materials that I was going to need with these cat tree plans. I calculated there would be several different materials that I'd need to find or buy  and put together in order to be able to build Mr. Shredder a scratching post. I was pleasantly surprised by how few materials I in reality was required  when I got the plans. I was also amazed by how inexpensive they were to buy. I also was able to download them right onto my computer!

The biggest thing I was the most concerned about was if the cat scratching post  instructions were going t o simple and easy to understand. I was worried that I would need a college degree  to follow a bunch of complex directions, much to my delight and to my surprise they were very simple. The cat tree plans that I was using came with pictures that I could see to let me know that I was on the right track.

I can say now... Building my cat scratching tree was one of the simplest projects that I ever attempted, and I am really happy I discovered how to do it. Mr. Shredder  no longer rips and destroys  all of my furniture...Now  I can  have a few friends over to my house without worrying that my cat is going to start scratching at them. If you have your very own Mr. Shredder and want to be able to fix it then make sure that you learn how to build your very own scratching tree for your cat.
