Hi! This is my Ikea Hack inspired 100% Ikea Cat apartment for my 2x Japanese Bob Tail Kittens.

Items are as follows
EXPEDIT 2×4 = 1
EXPEDIT 2×2 = 1
EXPEDIT 1×1 = 2 (used as steps, 2 panels ea)
EXPEDIT cupboard doors Green = x2
LACK 1×1 Shelf = 2 (2 spare, will mount on wall )
Ikea Rug (Seasonal, green in Xmas display section) = 7

Cat Scratch Post =
Lack Table Leg = 3 screwed together with provided screw
Base is Lack Table with bored hole = 1

All items are “placed adjacent” to one another. The buckles that come with EXPEDIT is used as L brackets to secure to wall and one another.

    Amazing. Those are loved cats. But — do they use it?

    I have bought so many cat beds and pillows and toys and scratch posts that have been entirely ignored by my two Abyssinians…. S-)

  2. Tonkinese cat owner says:

    How strong is that cat scratch post made from the table legs??

  3. Louise says:

    I would love to see more photos. I have been looking for something like this to make for my cats. Is there any chance I could see other angles?
