Evan was such a good boy that I was extremely happy when my feline furbabies' early Christmas gift arrived just in time to serve as a nice little reward for my him. Their early Christmas gift is another cat tree.
Although it is for all of my kitties to enjoy, I spent hours searching online to find a cat tree that would specifically fit Evan's special needs. None of the other cat trees I've bought in the past have been able to accommodate the fact that his hind limbs are paralyzed but that he still has a strong urge to climb. It breaks my heart to see Evan watching the other cats go up and down cat trees with him stuck at the bottom. So, I researched, then researched some more, and then ended up with this dandy:
|The first shelf is at a low, Evan-able height. I like the stair-step progression of the shelves. My hope was that, especially given Evan's upper body strength, he'd be able to proceed to the top using the shelves as steps.|
|(Despite the contrary appearance of this picture, Thimble did not become a Manx cat. She just pulled an Eddy and didn't feel like sitting still for a picture, which apparently meant that her tail needed to look docked in this picture.)|
|Thimble and her adorable face (not that I'm biased or anything).|
|A rare moment of Eddy sitting still!|
|That's my boy!|
I think I was just as excited as Evan to see him finally experience the thrill of reaching the top of a cat tree. Yay, Evan!
Now of course I can't leave Astrid out of this post. So, what does the resident pup think of the cat tree?
