    Hey in the picture of the shelves, what kind of wall hangers are being used, where can I find them?

    Oy! This would be great for my sons loft bed… his cat CRIES if he can’t get up there, so I usually end up lifting him up and down all night when he wails for me. ;)

    AHA! I am going to be building a loft bed soon and this is the purrfect way for my 2 cats to get up there. (I can’t get to sleep unless someone is sprawled accross me and purring.) Thanks for the great idea!

    Yes they are but the boards that go with those brackets are longer. They cut them for the cat shelves. If you don’t live near an Ikea, you can order by catalog.

    Where can you obtain the brackets for the shelves? I spent an hour web searching but couldn’t find anything similar.

      you can find the brackets called BJARNUM at IKEA and can combine the Ekby Jarpen shelving in different sizes:)

    Great Idea!!!! Have you read a book called The Cat’s House? The whole house has catwalks along the ceiling and cutouts through the walls. Now I can Make my house like that! Thank You!

    Hi! Thank you for picking up my photo. My cats are 7kg and 5kg. Are they a littile bit heavy?

    I love this idea, and the shelves must be really sturdy, since those cats look kind of big.
