I wanted to do a post on DIY cat scratch trees as most of our cats love them but they can be quite expensive. For example, we have 3 scratch trees+posts at our apartment and each is about 40 euros.

I have discovered numerous websites that have step by step tutorials on how to make a scratch tree yourself. In summary, the idea is similar and simple – use a hot glue gun to wrap sisal rope around legs of the table or plastic poles and for the base of your scratch tree, you can either use a shelf or a carpet. Sounds pretty simple, right? What’s nice is that you can personalise and design the tree like you want! Great DIY project🙂

I found this great tutorial at IdealHomeGarden, have a look and tell me what you think!
