When I was a little girl we would visit my grandmother at my aunt’s house who had a “breezeway” that was between the house and the garage where kittens/cats were often found. It was a kids dream with not only the furry felines, but a big pool to swim in out back, and my grandmother’s peanut butter & jelly was the bomb. To top it all off she would give me 1 dollar bills to go get ice-cream at the whippy dip 😎 . Doesn’t get better than that folks. Now that I’m all grown up, I don’t have the whippy dip or a pool, and my beloved grandmother is no longer with us, however I do have my cats. When I took these photos I had 2 cats, but we recently rescued another feline, so be sure to check her out at the end of this post she is a cutie. She comes to us at a perfect time to enjoy our new “Affordable Cat Tree”. When I say affordable, I mean AFFORDABLE. I was literally shocked at the low price, so I really felt the need to share this with you.
Here’s Forest (aka Man-Boy/Kitty Boo Boo) enjoying his favorite spot on the cat tree…
Forest absolutely loves this cat tree. He’s actually sleeping on the top tier as I type. Now, I’ve had cats almost all of my adult life, but I’ve never given a thought to how much cats prefer to be up high. It comes natural to them, and it makes them feel like they are out in the wild. Forest jumps up/down this baby in seconds and I can literally see his muscles getting stronger. What’s really nice, is that I placed it in front of a window so the entire crew can stalk the birds, squirrels, and my neighbor outside 😆 .
But best of all…
This cat tree keeps the cats off of my furniture!!! You can’t see me, but I’m holding my arms up in the air and bouncing them up and down. Not only does it keep them OFF my furniture, it gives them a safe place to scratch their paws/claws on. Notice the poles are covered in a special twine to attract the cats. And for the low price, I just couldn’t resist. We actually put this cat tree out as a surprise on Christmas morning.
I know the cat tree we bought is large (over 6 ft.), however they come in many shapes and sizes. In fact I sent my Mom & Dad the “medium” sized one below for their cat and they send me photos of Daisy laying on it. Keep in mind my parents have a small apartment and they still have room for the medium one. If you have any questions on sizes, just let me know below.

Both Sylvia and Forest enjoy the cat tree so far, and I have no doubt that our newest addition will enjoy it as well. The little “condo” areas act as a hideout when they are feeling frisky and chasing one another. I love being able to give them this fun area to be themselves and have some fun without worrying about my furniture. You’ll also find that in pet stores these are priced much higher.

In the middle of writing this post, my youngest and I unexpectedly rescued a 1.1 year old cat! She is a tiny little girl weighing only 6 lbs. Turns out the Michigan Humane Society rescued her from a factory where she was found with a frostbit tail and major skin issues they think due to a flea allergy. After amputating part of her tail, and treating her for fleas, she is ready for her new life. We have never had 3 cats before, but we think she will complete our family! She is extremely friendly and loves to be cuddled. She also purrs very loud! We named her “Spooky Little Girl”…
