Pop quiz: what”s a cat run? If you already know the answer, you”ll want to see this. And if you don”t, you”ll certainly want to build one, because having an indoor obstacle course for your cat is pretty cool.
A cat run is a series of ledges and walkways made specifically for your family feline. It lets them get to a high, safe place in their own home (plus, it”s a lot of fun for them). This Reddit user decided to make a bookshelf-cat run hybrid for their two kitties. Wobbles, the older grey cat, is a little cross-eyed and needs help getting around. When he was just a kitten, he was hit by a forklift in a warehouse.
Now, he and his housemate are relaxing in style.
Start with some pine wood and cut the planks into even slabs. You can even stain it if you”re feeling fancy.
Next, attach a set of metal brackets to the wall for each plank, ensuring that they”re even. Setting them up in a staircase pattern is a feline favorite.
Now attach carpet to the wood and set the boards on the brackets.
And there you have it: stylish-looking steps to keep your cat entertained for hours.
This cat enthusiast even mounted his stereo system underneath for an edgy-but-functional vibe.
The whole situation is cat-approved.
Sure, it may not be the most complex invention ever, but it does the job! Trust me, your cat will thank you later (or it won”t, because it”s a cat).
