When all else fails

Rearrange the furniture.

Raven was unsettled and very vocal this morning. Our usual fun & games weren’t satisfying her so I resorted to the one trick that always amuses her  – rearranging her furniture. I moved her perches around and dragged in a couple from other rooms to create a kitty jungle gym. It’s a simple (although slightly back-breaking) trick that gives her something new to do and she has to think about how to get from one perch to the next. We played on the perches for about 5 minutes, but that was enough to get her out of her funky mood. She’ll be able to explore her “new” jungle gym all day before I put everything away so we can see the t.v.!

    OMC, what an awesome idea! I love that you did that. My human can’t even buy us ONE cat tower (the one we have was a hand-me-down, and my castle is too small to be considered a “tower”). I’m glad it made Raven so happy.

      I’ve had the tall perch on the far right since December 2002 … that’s 15 years! I’ve been very lucky in that my kitties have been very gentle on their furniture and don’t use them as scratching posts.

  9. Wow what an amazing jungle gym!

    Holey Moley that’s a lot of cat trees!

      And there are two more! We donated two others to the animal shelter after Sammi died. She was our three-legged kitty and needed extra perches side-by-side so she could navigate up and down safely.

  12. How fun, Raven! This made me smile. It looks like PetSmart where they display their cat trees. I bet you had a blast.

    Now that looks like fun, Raven!
    I’m working on a post about the crazy/silly things we do for the love of our pets. I’d say this rates right up there – love it!!
