Build your own cat tree (Archived version)
You can build this design, published by the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies. They state it was originally published in the June/July 1994 issue of PETA’s Animal Times.
This is a four perch cat tree (2 feet wide x 2 feet deep x 4 feet 6 six inches high), and suggests using heavy upholstery and poly batting rather than carpet. This is because cats have been known to sometimes scratch up and destroy carpet (although the plans allow for carpeting to be used if desired).
The Cat Ladder (Archived version)
Here's a unique idea made from a step-ladder, some sisal rope, a cardboard concrete tube, and some carpeting. There are no plans, per se, but I believe it should be easy enough to copy a simple design like this.
Here are more ideas, descriptions, and photos for some creative do it yourself projects and DIY cat furniture makers.
