I have this very snazzy, super deluxe, floor-to-ceiling cat tree from Drs. Foster and Smith. I had it in the kitchen of my old apartment in Somerville, and Harri, Patrick, Tessie, Kylie and Gun-Hee all loved it.
Patrick especially loved it.
I mean, he really loved it.
I got it in 2005 as a replacement for the older, blue one I’d brought with me from Atlanta, which was getting a little ragged. Patrick couldn’t wait for us to unpack it.
He even helped to assemble it.
He could not even wait for it to be put together before he was climbing on it!
Sadly, it wasn’t tall enough for the very high ceilings in the old condo, so when I moved out of my apartment in March 2009, the awesome tree went into storage.
When I got Angel in 2008, I wasn’t spending much time at my old apartment although I still kept it for a few months after I married. I’m not sure if she has ever seen this cat tree (but she really loved the floor-to-ceiling cat tree my mom has at her house, and wasted no time climbing it). I know Jacoby never has, since it was put into storage before he was even born!
But on Monday, it was packed up to go to Sweden.
It was pretty amazing to watch the mover pack it up in paper.
We decided not to take it apart, except for the very top, spring-loaded part.
He was so fast! I couldn’t imagine wrapping up a cat tree in moving paper…but then, he’s a professional.
So, here’s my snazzy cat tree, all packed up and ready to go. Next stop, Sweden!
