Are cat tree designs really too hard for you to use? Pet stores and custom cat furniture dealers want you to think so. They will tell you cat tree plans are a waste of time and money for the average cat lover. Is this the truth? Let’s find out…
It’s my experience and the experience of countless folks owned by a feline friend that cat tree designs you build yourself are far better than any you find in a pet store. They will be a better color, the exact shape you want and definitely better built.
In fact, when you build your own cat tree it’ll be far superior in every way to the pathetic stuff they charge an arm and a leg for in pet stored these days. And yet the questions these self serving folks plant in your mind persist. Let’s take a look at them.
Are Cat Tree Designs or Plans A Waste Of Money?
If you buy a series of individual plans they could be. But smart shoppers know to look for a collection of cat tree plans that are modular in nature. You’ll find ones that are mix and match so you can either use them as is or design a totally unique piece of cat furniture to fit your unique home. That means you’ll only need to buy one set of plans even if you change your mind in mid-project. This will save you both time and money.
Is It Too Difficult To Make Your Own Kitty Tree?
Nothing could be farther from the truth. DIY cat tree designs are made for the “shade tree” builder (or at least the ones I use are). They have hundreds of photos illustrating step-by-step what to do and when to do it. So you’ll never get lost or confused. You’ll see EXACTLY what you your next step is.
They’ll even have cut out diagrams so you won’t waste any materials. This keeps costs down. And speaking of parts… Your plans will include a complete “shopping list” so you’ll get everything you need the first time. Making repeat trips to the store a thing of the past.
(TIP: If you take your “cut out diagram” with you to the store, you can have the folks there make a few of the big cuts for you. They usually do this for free. It’ll reduce the time it’ll take you to build your kitty jungle gym and it’ll make things fit in your vehicle easier.)
Seriously, with a set of cat tree designs or plans… A cat tower, condo or tree is one of the easiest diy projects you can make. Don’t be intimidated into paying for too much for an inferior product. Make it yourself, get what you want and save a ton of cash.
