Project cat runway

Got sexy feline who wants to strut its stuff? Give it a runway then. Let Liz and Jarod show you how.

“My partner and I created a rental-friendly (i.e. no holes in walls) cat run using 2 Ikea Expedit shelving units.” The shelves form the base for the run, which is made from a 2.8m x 0.4m chipboard. The run is carpeted for kitty to sink its claws into. A little ledge was also added to the side of the shelving unit, so that kitty can get up there.

See more of the cat run.

    SUPER COOL! We have something similar, and put some artwork atop ours but it would be perfect for our kitties — great idea!

    great idea! I have a hideous cat condo so this may be the next new thing, especially with marriage and a dog coming into the picture…

    I like it, it doesn’t scream “cat furniture!” like a hideous cat condo.
