♫ Tie a yellow ribbon round the old cat tree.
It’s been 17 years.
Do you still love me?
I built this cat tree out of scrap lumber, rope, and carpet. The oldest photo I found easily was a room photo from 1999 (not shown), but the tree carpet is missing. It may be a little older. I had trouble getting the carpet to stay on. The ropes have been replaced countless times. I found no photographs with Marigold on the cat tree. She used to climb upon it, but just scratches the bottom today. It looks rough, and I thought of getting rid of it, but it is still very popular. I never could find a good place for my pencil sharpener, so it is screwed onto the cat tree for decades, and I still use it! Guess I will have to keep it afterall!
