How to build a scratching post for your kitties
===============================================

Text: Michael Doherty
Illustration: Veronica Karlsson

I built a good, durable post for my cats for $12.  All you need is a
square piece of plywood for the bottom.  Buy 2 feet (or taller if you
want it) of 4 x 4 posts used for fencing.  Buy a bolt to attach 4 x 4
to plywood through the bottom.  You now have a post.  Buy 100 feet of
1/4 inch twine.  This next part is hard to explain so I'll illustrate
with some pictures.  This is what you want to build:

Drill a hole in the direction of the arrow all the way through the
post.

Thread the sting through it and tie a knot at the end.  This gives
you one end that is attached.

When you are near the top, again thread string through a predrilled
hole and tie a knot as close to the wood as possible.  Then what I did
is extend the string out another 8 inches...tie a knot....leave
another inch.  This gives them a toy.

I forgot....go to the carpet store and purchase one of their 2x2
samples for $2.00.  Cut a hole in the middle and place of post and
push down to base.  This prevents injuries from landing on plywood.

Nice instructions. Could I suggest that you make it three feet high?
Two feet is kind of short to let  a full grown cat stretch as much as
it would like to. And for the base, a really wide square of plywood
would be good for stability. I found my cats were constantly knocking
over their original scratching post when they played chase and
ricocheted off it to change direction.

Make that 3 feet tall, so the cat can stretch. Sometimes cats won't
use a scratching post because it's too short. Also, make sure that the
base is extra wide, if the scratching post is unstable the cat won't
want to use it. Also, fasten two layers of plywood together so you can
countersink the bolts. This will contribute to its stability.

A comment from DJ

Here is the secret to the best scratchpost...make it big and heavy.
I have built a few scratchposts (the cats wear those things out..which
is good). I have found that the reason cats lose interest in those
little store bought posts and head for the couch is because those
little posts move around and the couch doesn't. My posts are about 1
foot square and 3 feet tall. They are covered with carpet and the
inside is filled with rocks. The post ways about 60 pounds (25kg) when
the rocks are in it so it won't move when my cats come up and attack
it..So remember, make it heavy enough to stay still and make it tall
enough so the can stand up and scratch up the post (just as if they
were scratching up a tree).

Some thoughts related to travelling with cats
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


Then of course there is the "carrier". I think it's important how it is
constructed, for safety and for making the cat as little uncomfortable
(and scared) as possible.

When I was _very_ young we had a basket made of very thin wood. The
material and technique was the same as in these:

http://stab.se/hantverk/korg.JPG
http://www.castor.bjurholm.se/hemsidor/johan/agnes_spkorg.gif

This basket was completely dark inside with no possibility to see out.
The material was also thin enough for an energetic cat to claw through,
and it had been used for transporting cats for many years... It had been
"repaired" by putting newspaper as "wall paper" on the inside
(especially the corners, which is where the cats "attacked" most
fiercly).

It looked like this, closed:

Of course, the cats *HATED* it! And the construction of the lid didn't
exactly make it any easier to get them _into_ it to begin with (imagine
the fun with two half-grown kittens who had to go to the vet at the same
time and had to travel in this thing...).


Later on we got a more cat friendly basket, of the same kind of material
as the ones in these pictures:

http://home.ljusdal.se/photo/3861.lovrafsa.korg.jpg
http://www.imm.ki.se/~Morry/IMAGES/KORG.JPG


It had a narrow "window" near the top where the cats could get a 360
degree view of the world. It was not very deep (the cat could not "sit
up" comfortably in it) and the "lock" was _very_ poor, the "hinges",
like the "lock" could only be described as a joke. The shape of the lid
in combination with the flexibility of the material made it possible for
a cat to squeeze through at the front corners of the lid.

It looked like this, closed:

This was not much more popular than the first one, and it was way too
easy to break out of. It now serves some useful time holding accordion
notes, and for that purpose it is just excellent.


We now have a modern miracle. A small, white wire cage with free sight
in every direction except down and a construction that not even a feline
Houdini would be able to break out of.


This is my first attempt at drawing it:

   |_|_|_|_|_|_|_|_|_|_|_|/



(I'm not happy with either. The cage is a little bit rounded to the top
and not quite as square as it looks in my pictures, it's wider at the
base than at the top, but that kind of line is very hard (impossible) to
do in ascii)

You can pull it out completely! Because of this there is no need to try
to force the cat into the box, you just put the cat on the tray and
push. The cat sits still on a comfortable cushion while the tray slides
into the cage. The only problem then is to keep the tail from getting
squished when you close the lid. This one *works*!  :)
