If you are a lucky cat owner, you may need furniture for your pets to entertain, entertain, and make them feel at home. Scratching posts and cat towers are great for climbing, scratching, sleeping and much more. Cats love to stay up somewhere. Here are some ideas on how you can make cool scratching posts and cat towers yourself without wasting money!
The tall, narrow tower with a wide base fits easily and inconspicuously in a corner or in front of a window.

Common scratching posts are not about real trees, this is just a name. But this piece is inspired by realistic looking scratching posts and looks accordingly! The resulting piece is a scratching post that really looks like a tree, and there are even rocks that mimic a landscape! The rocks are big enough that the cat will understandably mistake the floor for a litter box, nor attempt to eat it. The stepping stones allow them to walk around the base and will help keep costs down as they are so much cheaper than the rocks.
Here’s a simple and easy scratching post with parts that are carpeted for comfort and an IKEA hack. Isn’t that what we all love?

Large scratching posts are nice, but very expensive. But you can make one a lot cheaper for less than half the price! Even if you build one too and don’t have all of the materials, you can get them for just a few dollars. Read the tutorial, personalize the tree however you want and make your kittens happy! Don’t forget to add the ladder and let your cat explore! The small base can be slid around so you can hold it on its side or create an angle that doesn’t take up as much space. Let your pets enjoy!

Whether you have multiple cats or just one, they all love and want to climb. With that in mind, building a multi-part wall scratching post is a great idea.

The whole piece is made of IKEA lacquer tables and also shows some scratches, so this piece is very multifunctional. The project itself is very simple, stacking and appending tables is not that difficult.
Scratching posts and condos are pretty expensive, but if you are willing to work and spend some time, you can get it for some money.

The parts are carpeted and other parts are jute to make the entire item completely scratchable. Such a creative item won’t spoil your interior, it looks geeky and fun!
The last but not least is this sisal rope scratching post with two platforms. This is a fantastic, inexpensive, and easy to make cat seat / scratching post that can be built for as little as $ 15-20.
