Dudo's Dream House

We needed/wanted a new scratching post/cat tree for the boys to replace the old one, which was cheap, unstable, and not really large enough. San Geraldo found a great option on Overstock.com (who ship almost anywhere!!!) that could be had for only $130. Shipping was an additional $145 (apparently shoppers in Canada can get that same deal). So much for Overstock.com.

San Geraldo found another tree that turned out to be even better. The boys are in love with it. As you can see from the photos, they knew it was theirs before I even assembled it last night.

Dudo has spent more than 23 of the last 24 hours on and in his dream house. Moose is welcome to join him, but he'd better not even think about trying to go a level above Dudo. Dudo made that very clear this afternoon.

I call it Dudo's Dream House because although Moose likes it, we get the sense from Dudo that "It's exactly what I've wanted my entire life!!! OMG!!! I love you so much!!!" 

(Click the images to really feel the love.)

I UNPACKED AND THE BOYS MADE THEMSELVES AT HOME.
MOOSE LOVED RUNNING ACROSS THE ROPE COLUMNS... LIKE A LOGGER.
DUDO SETTLED IN FOR A FEW HOURS.
I WOKE HIM WHEN I NEEDED THE BOX AND
HE SIMPLY MOVED TO THE NEXT AVAILABLE PLATFORM.
BEDTIME ON LEVEL FOUR.
THIS MORNING.
THIS AFTERNOON,
WITH THE OLD ONE IN BACKGROUND.
EARLIER THIS EVENING.
AND RIGHT NOW.

      It's become an equal-opportunity dream house. They are both all over it now and Moose gets plenty of opportunities as king of the hill.

      They really are, and Moose is already regularly claiming top position.

  5. The one we found is not particularly stable at all, although it looks similar in assembly style to yours. I ended up bolting it to the wall. And Bert is not what you might call enamored with it.

      Our first one was so tippy that it would go flying whenever they jumped off. It hit an antique glass cabinet but, luckily, didn't break it. Since ours is right in the middle of everything, we didn't want to attach it to the wall, which would have been the best solution. This one, however, is wonderful.

  6. I'm lost for words - as are D & M. It's so perfect - and, boy, do they know it! The best gift they could ever have had, by a mile.

      Seeing them playing, sitting, and sleeping on this would fill your heart with joy. And Moose is now covering all levels as well. And he's being just as bossy as Dudo.

  7. We had to give up our cat tree when we moved into our Airstream. The women who adopted it recently sent a picture. Their cats are all over it!
    Dudo and Moose do have you well trained to do their bidding. :-)

      We have definitely been trained. But there's a design opportunity: An Airstream Cat Tree.

      It's heartwarming. Some cats can be so hard to read. Not these two.

      And I think they finally know it. (But we're fortunate, too.)

      AND... it's an equal opportunity paradise. Dudo has signed over half the deed to Moose. They share beautifully. Moose is even regularly on the top level.
