Catification: Beautiful Cat Climbing Shelves

Kacy Turner from Fairfax, Virginia created this spectacular cat climbing wall with step shelves leading to the long shelves below the transom windows overlooking the deck and backyard. This is a great example of seamlessly integrating cat climbing surfaces into your decor.

She used simple wooden shelves with trim and decorative braces to create sturdy and attractive shelves. Paint everything white and add some carpet on top and you've got a beautiful, cat-friendly wall element.

We particularly like how the cat shelves are integrated with the artwork on the walls. And the cat silhouette wall decals are a nice touch, too. Great job!

From Jackson: Fantastic. Props for proper integration of cat TV!
