Welcome to Prefabcat where we make things for our cat

The Christmas Cat Tree

 

I made Dinni a cat tree, it also doubles up as our Christmas tree. I wanted the tree to be as free-standing as I could make it, so I made the trunk pretty much solid cardboard and wedged it  under the ceiling. I was surprised how strong it was and it  only wobbles  a little. The problem with it is that I didn’t plan it out, and therefore some of the higher platforms are hard to climb up to.

Dinni just isn’t a tree climbing kind of cat, He's more of a bush dweller, which gives me an idea for his next  construction.

Oh the black cardboard cat is a advent calender I made for the second love of my life Natalia.

 

I love making things, especially out of cardboard. My cat also loves cardboard and I love my cat. here are the results. Cardboard is so easy to find and use. I assemble it all with a hot glue gun.

 

 

Dinni's name at the moment

 

Prawn Boy

The cat ark

 

I designed this new cardboard cat tower with moving parts, giving Dinni alternative movement  around the tower. some stepping planks that can be pulled out, ramps, sliding windows and some storage draws for his toys.

the initial idea was to create a wall type structure for Dinni to climb up, I missed a good photo opportunity of Dinni clinging on to the tower trying to reach the top window, so you will have to imagine it. The great music was made by sammy smith.

 

Dinni's Landing

 

Time for a new Cat House.

Dinni liked his last tower. He liked being up high, surveying the room and us - but he didn’t use the stairs or the intricate walkway that I built. He just made his own way up, the quickest way.

I confess that the last cat house I made was more for me rather than the cat. At one point, Dinni had gotten a lot bigger and needed more space.

In this new tower I tried to emulate a tree a little, with platforms extruding out and tall walls he can climb up, and, of course, added flags (which he hates and will tear down).

 

Heres a video showing off the new tower, with

great  music by sammy smith.

 

 

 

The First Cat Tower (demolished)

 

Dinni loved this tower, he gave it a good bashing too.  He destroyed all the aesthetics, there was also graffiti appearing. The cardboard I used was also a bit to week. (I'm using the good stuff now).
