Hello,

Some day in the future I hope to turn a room in my house into a playroom for my cats. I was searching the internet for ideas and I came across a picture of a playroom at a shelter that I think is AMAZING! If you go to the link below you will see an article on catchannel dot com that is all about a new cat playroom opening up at a shelter in Tennessee.

http://www.catchannel.com/News/cats-set-to-play-in-jungle.aspx?c m_sp=InternalClicks-_-RelatedArticles-_-news/cats-set-to-play-in-jun gle

I will probably try and email the shelter and ask if they can send me some more pictures of the playroom. Has anyone every seen stairs and cubicles like those in the picture before? Does anyone know if a company sells stairs and cubicles like those in the picture for cats to play on? I just think it would be neat to have stairs and cubicles like those in the picture attached to a wall for my cats to climb on and play in.

Any comments or more info would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hey, thanks for posting that. Someday I'd like to turn a room into a playroom sort of thing for my kitties, too! First I need a bigger, better place, though.

What a great thing for a shelter to do - it looks really neat and fun. I hope the shelter can send you the plans, or even if they just send more pictures it would help. I've not seen anything like that for sale anyplace.

Okay, I'm going to try and make the link to your story clickable -- usually when I try, I get it wrong -- but here's the shelter story:

Your link worked great Tommy. That is a neat room for sure. I don't know where to get the stuff but I am sure it can be made.

The Humane Society where mom volunteers had 4 colony rooms and each one has a different theme. One is like a 50's diner, one like a livingroom, etc. Each one has multiple shelves on the walls for kitties to sleep on and some even have miniature furniture like cat sized chairs and sofas. It is really cute and the kitties love it.

Good luck in making your room

That looks so cool!!! Meowmy likes to watch HGTV and said the cubes are probably made of MDF, and then someone cut a hole on the side. What a great idea in that the kitties have a place to run around and play, and the people get to watch them and decide to who take home with them.cheercheercheer

Wish we had room at our house for something like that!!!!
