Entertainment options are important when you own a curious cat. We buy cat trees, toys with ribbons attached to them, squeeky mice, cat nip and much more.
When I was browsing Pinterest I ran across this brilliant idea and thought if I were a cat I’d like to have one of these self petting stations, wouldn’t you? There’s nothing better than a built in back scratcher, right? Heck I need one of these!
This is a fun little project that can be completed in an hour or two depending on what you have laying around the house. It’s a self-petting station for your cats so that they can get a good back scratching while you’re at work or away on vacation.
I made one of these and my cat absolutely loves it. It also gives my dog a break, since they play chase off and on all day and night. My cat sometimes gets the best of my poor dog!
This DIY project is a little more interesting than a cardboard box, which my cat loves to get into…he even tries to get into boxes half his size!
To introduce it to your cat/cats, sprinkle some cat nip on it, sit back and enjoy!
