feline physique: get an ikea stolmen cat gym





more pet decor. seems like ikea should create a new furnishing category for our animal friends. julie tipped me (thanks julie!) on this cat gym put together from parts of the ikea stolmen storage system.

i like the way it blends into the living room and gives the cats a seat in family get-togethers. the instructions are not in english (danish? finnish?) but the pictures are pretty self-explanatory. link.

    This is a really great idea! Wow – I know our kitten would love this, and maybe our older (and lazier)cat will join in too!

    Would of been nice to have a list of component names like the page that is not in English.

    the components seem to be super expensive if you check for “stolmen” parts on ikea’s website… :( so it doesn’t quite work unless you’re OK with spending a good amount of cash.

    Posts are listed as $30 a piece, shelves $20 each, and fittings $2.50 to $5.00. So the set up in the pic would cost $200+!

    I’m wondering if there’s a way to do this for a fraction of the price by doing it in PVC piping.

    Yes, it is Finnish, here is a translations site. http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fi&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.niksa.net%2Fkiipeilypuu.html
    Remember those prices are most likely not dollars. PVC would probably be cheaper, but you’d need to put in more work for the aesthetics. If it were me, I’d probably rope all the poles and carpet the shelves.
    BTW, Very nice cat furniture ideas site. :)

    FY Collective I, I just made a floor to ceiling stolman post (around 2.7m) and 40 meters of 6mm rope only made it 2/3s the way up! It takes a lot of rope and time and sweat.

    Looks sweet though :-)

    length rope = (3,1415 * pole diameter * pole length) / rope diameter

    maybe add an extra 20% to the length and use a hammer to get the sisal tight
