Aby-a-Day – March 23: Soaring to new heights

The new part finally arrived and we were able to finish the last wall-mounted cat tree box! Jacoby could not wait for it to be built.

Here he is waiting impatiently with the drill/screwdriver.

“How am I supposed to get up here?”

“This is where the new shelf should go, Dad!”

Jake and Tessie wasted no time climbing to the very top.

But when Jake got the to the uppermost box, he didn’t want to stop climbing.

So he didn’t.

He just kept going, and ventured out onto the ventilation duct…

…boldly going where no cat has gone before.

We’re going to need to put some sort of grippy material on that duct if he wants to go up there on a regular basis, though. It’s rounded and, I’m sure, very slippery with nothing for even grabby Aby hands to hold onto.

I’d have to say that the wall-mounted cat trees are definitely a raging success! Jake and Tessie approve!
