Caturday ~ Venus update, new cat tree!

Venus has been very anxious, adjusting to a new home. Then again, Venus always seems to be anxious. I thought a new cat tree might make her feel better.

Her old tree was falling apart so I threw it out, didn’t even bother moving it over. This new tree is MUCH BIGGER! It’s definitely an upgrade!

I ordered this from Amazon and put it together myself. I was surprised at how successful I was. No toolbox needed, I thought the instructions were very straight forward. However I did have a lot of trouble putting the latter together, which was the final step, so I sort of gave up on that — but you can’t even tell right?

My only complaints: it’s not very sturdy which may or may not be my fault, I mean I screwed each part as tight as possible so I think it’s the tree. Also it’s clearly meant for a tiny kitten, the hammock at the bottom and the perch that sticks out can only really hold up to a few pounds or so. And my curvy grown lady is at least 15. This also makes it harder to climb, I haven’t really seen her try, I think she’s just scared because she’s an overly cautious shy kitty. Right now I have to grab her myself and put her on it. Hope she warms up to it soon. So far she loves the scratching post.
