Cat ladder DIY will make your cat happy as well as decorate your home. Whether it’s moving from the country to the city or a new family cat that, contrary to expectations, wants to go outside – cat owners are quickly faced with the problem that the cat wants to go out but can’t. Sometimes a cat ladder DIY can help. Anyone who follows me on Instagram knows that my lover and I were busy at the weekend.
Cat Ladder DIY
Cat ladder DIY can be easier than you think. We had planned for ages to build cat stairs on our wall – as an extension of the catwalk that we had under the covers for almost two years. Cats use spaces in three dimensions, while humans use them primarily in two sizes. A small apartment can therefore get more living space with climbing options such as a cat staircase for a cat.
The solution was often a longboard along the house wall – or the house tiger was not allowed out. This is where my cat ladder DIY comes in. It is easy to build, does not cost much, and looks much better than such an inclined plank along the house wall, over which vermin can run-up. With this staircase, this will most likely not happen at most with very acrobatic slime.
Cat Ladder DIY Photo Gallery & Album
Cat Ladder DIY for each step, you need:
- One board
- Two angles
- Four dowels,
- Four long screws
- Four short screws
Please do not be confused by the fact that I only photographed two dowels and screws. The boards should be as long as it looks good on your wall. Since we built the cat ladder DIY in a small corner, our boards are 31cm long. With you, however, completely different dimensions can be suitable. We decided on 20cm for the width. That’s wide enough for an average cat’s bottom.
The angles should, of course, match your interior, but above all, should be stable enough. After all, tigers weighing a few pounds want to hop on it later. In some hardware stores or online shops, the maximum load capacity of angles is explicitly stated. With stairs as short as here, stability is of secondary importance – it depends on the load-bearing ability of the tips and their anchoring in the wall. Cat Ladder DIY, enjoy.
