Man Builds Two Cat Towers Inside His Home, And It Looks Like A Kitty Fairytale

Cats are natural-born climbers and most of them enjoy being in high places. Whether itís a high shelf or the top of the refrigerator, kitties feel really comfortable in the upper half of the room, keeping an eye on the surroundings below them with greater confidence.

Recently, Rob Countu from Windsor, Connecticut, decided to embrace these instincts of his cats and built them two epic towers. The well-crafted structures provide them with both comfort and entertainment, and his little furballs are absolutely loving them.

7. It's cute, but...

I'm wondering how long it will stay so nice. I have cats. They're wonderful and I love them. But if they don't puke on the cool stuff (we thankfully only have 1 puker, but she's an overachiever), they leave fur all over it and, of course, scratch it and eat little pieces. Those little lights and flowers? Gone in an hour. We've seen several really cool cat walks and such, but my brain always goes to the "hell to clean" and/or "trashed in a day" place.

We bought some cheap-ish (<$50) cardboard scratchers and those are their favorite things. Go figure.

9. Those were my thoughts too - cat scratches, markings, vomiting/hairballs, general fur loss...

11. If it was made out of tough plastic you could take it outside periodically and hose...

it out, providing there's no back to it of course.

He could sell those things, different sizes and connectivity. He might even get an offer on "Shark Tank".

17. As lovely as it is...


I have a fur cat who leaves hair behind with each step, it seems. He has almost angora rabbit type fur, incredibly soft, but god does he shed.

19. My barfer seems to prefer

barfing from high places, right over the baseboard heaters. I guess it is a score!

20. I know, right?



We have tile floors almost throughout. But mine chooses rugs, furniture, and oak windowsills. And, of course, the cardboard scratching thingies. Never the tile.

10. Will he come to my place and build a tree for my kitties?]

I have been searching all over for a cat tree that has ramps instead of steps and shelves not to high from each other and if there is a condo it needs to have two entrance/exits. I have an 8 year old disabled cat who loves to be high up and it is painful for her to jump up on current tree. I also have a 5 year old kitten ( he acts like one ) who likes to bother her sometimes and being trapped in a box is not good. I have found a couple close to that but one was $600 and the other $800. I am on a small fixed income.
