Design: The Climbing Pole
Location: Park Slope, Brooklyn
Pet's Name: Cassidy and Jr. Cat
Size & Type: Cassidy (tabby, 10 lbs) and Jr. Cat (white, 17 lbs)
Pitch: "This is a 10' tall climbing post fashioned from a 2x3 wrapped in cotton clothesline rope. It stands away from the wall with 2x3 spacers so the cats can get their paws around the post for better climbing. It's too hot for anything other than lounging around the pole, so a little slim on the action shots...."
They both love to clamber up and jump down or defend their pole from
pesky invaders. Cassidy particularly likes to climb up to greet you after work and get her belly scratched while she is hanging on the post. The extra rope made nice dangly bits to swat for less ambitious Jr. Cat.
What would I get if I could get anything for my cat: Oh... a wall mounted wicker and felt cat cubbie, or an automatic litter box.
