Okay, this is something I have always wanted to do, just took a while to convince the hubby!! We put up carpet covered walkways all around our living room, with baskets for sleeping and dangling toys for the cats, and they are LOVING it! We intend to extend it down the hallway and into the kitchen and add tunnels, but it's a pretty good beginning. I wanted to share with you guys, because my other friends think I am nuts! Enjoy.

The way up






The dangling toys



Freyas Favorite place!

We have adjusted it some and added some steps after watching them and seeing what they needed. We have 6 cats, but so far only 4 of them have been climbing. the youngest of the four races sooooo fast up and down the ladder steps, lol! Freya has claimed the fuzzy house and wont let anyone else in it, that's ok, as I had her in mind when I bought it! I was worried they would fall and possibly get hurt but that has not been a problem so far, the carpet allows them a good grip, I can't wait to extend it!
If anyone has any ideas for extras to add to it, I am all ears!

Careful, we were gonna just do it along one wall, but once you see them having so much fun, it just keeps growing! That smaller scale can become quite large, :BigSmile:

I bet if you look up you will find lots of unused space! our house is pretty small, we dont have room for cat trees and furniture and 3 kids, and dogs, lol, but noone was using the ceiling, so UP we went, lol. the steps up are narrower and are hidden when the door is open, that took the most room, but you could just do a ladder to save space.

I love it! I love the hot pink catwalk in that clip from animal planet! I want to do that when I own my own house. Maybe for now I will have to settle for a few shelves for Miss Peaches :) :ThumbsUp: Thanks for sharing!

My lady lady already thinks we are nuts for the cats having their own room, it I tried this she would really think we have flipped.

They do have all their toys, their tree, the condo, and other things in their own bedroom. Its great when we have people over and we have the door open alot so they don't get out.
It was to be the guest room, but we don't have another bed right now anyways......................
