Expedit sideways cat tree
Materials: Any furniture Expedit series, two or three little selves, polyethylene foam (or manila rope), two scratching boards
Description: The aim is to create a space in which the cat can climb to the top of the main shelf, finding footholds in their path, they can also serve to drop to the floor when he wants.
The shelves must be small, cannot occupy the entire width of the Expedit. You can cut a shelf EKBI Laiva, although I reuse a piece of Pax wardrobe by cutting the right size.
STEP 1: We first determined the height at which we will place the shelves on the side of the Expedit. If necessary, paint the shelves to match the main furniture. We glued the polyethylene foam (or manila) on the shelves with wood glue, then we screw the brackets and put them in the Expedit.
STEP 2: Put the two scrapers and set so that the cat can climb them and find a foothold on the shelves.
Finally place another piece of polyethylene foam (or manila) on top of the Expedit, for the cat to grip when climbing.
