Well I finally got Blondie to use the outdoor cat tree by putting treats on the various levels. Now she keeps going on it and watching me from outside as my living room chair is right behind the door. Grace says no way, she doesn't trust it yet. I guess Blondie has claimed the outdoor cat tree for her own.

Some times it takes a while for a cat to get used to something new, but most are usually quite curious from the beginning. Happy to see that Blondie has accepted it!

She's such a pretty girl, nice to see her enjoying her out door tree.

That's cool. To me the design of that tree just seems so flawed. Rectangular edges making it impossible to climb, flat, small uncomfortable perches to sit on (even in the picture she doesn't look comfortable up there). I love the idea of an outdoor wooden tree that will stand up to the elements, but I think they really didn't think through the design on that one... :rolleyes:

Glad she can at least be bribed into going on it now though :lol:

She's so cute. I'm glad she's using it.

Brian you crack me up! Yes, it's true she had to be bribed to go on it. Now she does it hoping a treat materializes. The shelves are on the small side. I think that is why Grace refuses to go up on it even when treats are there. Blondie flies up over Grace's head to get all the treats and stands on the top with her chest puffed out looking out to the horizon. As long as one of them uses it! Maybe if I position it out at the edge of the patio by the lake they will enjoy it more? Right now it is rainy season and blondie seems to like its current location so she can keep a close eye on me inside.

There are so many options when it comes to outdoor cat trees, however, you are limited with the type of wood you can use -- and I think having any type of carpet on the platforms can bring in a mold situation. I know you have a lot of cat trees and catification done in your home, Jill, so I wouldn't be too worried. Did you ever replace your patio furniture?

No, I sold my big day bed and teak bar to make room for the cat tree. I didn't use the day bed more than a couple times a year and the cats were hanging out under the cover catching lizards and getting it full of fur. Plus Grace would nap under there all the time and hide when she didn't want to come in. Now it's all open under the roof line which is better for having lunch or dinner parties when the weather cools down. I have extra table and chairs in the garage. Plus there is less stuff for me to drag into the house when a hurricane comes by, like the one due on Thursday.
