I got it quite cheaply compared to most of the cat trees you see, which was why I bought it. No doubt it’s not as high quality, but…
Anyway, I bought it online in a fit of kitten love. Then 24 hours later… it occurred to me to check how heavy the delivered box would be. 50lbs. Huh. OK. I can lift that I guess… Up two flights of steps. I guess.
Then it arrived. The box was very large. I was NOT going to be able to carry it. But I triumphed. I got out my two wheel cart, essential tool for all single people, tied the box to the cart and pulled that damn box up 2 flights of steps. And didn’t kill myself by falling head first down the stairs.
Now it’s a box in my living room. It’s still not a cat tree.
Apparently, cat trees don’t just happen when you open the box. ASSEMBLY IS REQUIRED.
Assembly has not shown up and the box been waiting since Tuesday.
Saturday – the traditional day to celebrate the Assembly is Required footnote. I think Assembly must show up today because the cats are currently entertaining themselves by stampeding through the apartment like buffalo.
Happy Cat Stampede is a sound that I personally enjoy, but it is my understanding that other people do not. And I am going to assume that the downstairs neighbor finds the cat stampede to be annoying.
Hopefully if we assemble this cat tree they will focus their play on the tree and do fewer stampedes at 6am.
I doubt it though. Maybe she’s deaf.
