You can spend your weekend doing some crafts, making a cat tree for your furry friend that it can be used as a hang out place. To start working on one, check out the following DIY cat tree ideas bellow.
Simple Cat Tree
Let us start with the basics. When making a DIY cat tree, the most important thing to consider is how high the tree is. A cat tree will serve as entertainment, dwelling place, as well as an exercise for your feline friend. For this reason, make sure that the height of the tree is reachable by your cat.
To make a simple cat tree, use plywood along with carpet remnants, a rope, a power drill, as well as a 2×4 wood. Be ready to do some carpentry, but you can generally do it on your own.
Cat Tree Against The Wall
One of the things that most cats love to do is climb on a surface where it can relax and see the world. I mean, see everything below. If your cat is among these kinds, make him a tree that is secure against the wall.
With this cat tree, you don’t have to bring a whole lot of materials. Get plywood, a square edge timber, wall plugs, screws, power drill, angle brackets, carpet underlay, and you are ready to do some carpentry.
Rustic Cat Tree
If your feline friend loves to go out, make him a tree out of a real tree. One of the main things that you’ll need for this DIY project is a dead tree to make as a base. But if you don’t want to cut down a whole tree for your cat, you can use some branches instead. You will also need some wood, bamboo, rope, along with power tools.
Cozy Cat Tree
For those who are looking for a budget DIY cat tree that is still substantial for cats. This comfortable cat tree is something that you don’t want to miss out on. You can make the base of this project from an old kitchen counter or out of plywood, whichever fits your budget most.
You can use a jigsaw and tenon saw to cut some carpet tubes. A PVC pipe or thick cardboard may also work if you don’t have these things at home. Join these together using a hot glue gun, screws, or cable ties. Cover it with carpet, and your cat is set for some adventure.
Labyrinth Cat Tree
Making a labyrinth cat three takes effort and time, but it will be worth it in the end. To make this DIY cat tree, take some pinewood, metal shelf bracket, rope, mason jar, power drill, light bulb, wooden crate, and screws with you.
You will also need a robust Europal base for this and a strong square piece of wood to serve as the top and center platform for your feline friend.
If I were a cat, this would be my most favorite cat tree because it is full of tiny spaces where I can chill on. The light bulb is another factor that makes this DIY cat tree amazing.
Hollow Cat Tree
In one look, this hollow cat tree will catch your attention. Just like the other cat trees on the list, you will also need a carpet, plywood, as well as some power tools to make it. You have to wrap the rug all around the pieces to make your cat comfortable when climbing it. If you choose to expose some wood, apply some polish or stain to cover them.
This cat tree is hollow for some reason, and that is because it has an opening inside. It will allow the cat to climb around, so consider the length of the tree you will make according to your cat’s age and agility.
Two Platform Cat Tree
For cats who want to be lazy all day long, these two platform cat tree is something that they will surely love. It’s simple to make, and it provides an elevated view for your feline friend.
After cutting the base, make the post, and connect the end caps. Afterward, coil the rope and mount the pipes and cover the platforms and posts. Lastly, combine everything to finish the two platform cat tree.
This cat tree can accommodate two cats with its sturdy base. It is a primary platform where your pet can comfortably lay on whenever it wants to.
A cat tree is essential for cats since it increases vertical territory and an opportunity for felines to share a close space. Observe your cat sitting on a higher surface where it can see everything around it. Aren’t they look so relaxed and comfortable?
