Kitchen carts designed to hold microwaves or other appliances are usually sturdy pieces of furniture. Consider using a multiple shelf unit like this one, highly rated for its intended use, as a piece of furniture for your cat! There are several different space-saving ways you can use this free-standing baker's rack cart for your cat.
Use idea: Litter box station with storage
Keep your appropriately-sized litter box on the bottom shelf of this unit and use the other shelves for storage of litter box supplies like bags, extra litter, scoop, liner, and more. The shelf above the box will act like a hood to prevent extra scattering of litter as kitty exits the box. You can DIY a curtain or other barrier around three sides of the box, easy to hang from the shelf above, to prevent even more litter from scattering.
Use idea: Cat feeding station with storage
Feed kitty on one of the shelves of this unit. Let your cat free-feed by placing her food on an upper shelf, away from other pets. Store dry food and cans, extra dishes, and other cat supplies on the other shelves.
Use idea: Multiple level cat tree
Simply add cushions, blankets, or pillows to the different shelves to turn this rack into a multiple-level snooze zone for your cat! Hang toys from the top shelf for fun. Add scratch zones by attaching sisal rope or cardboard to the legs of the cart.

Black Cat Appreciation Day is meant to bring awareness to the fact that black cats have the lowest adoption rate among shelter cats. Many shelters offer special rates on black cat adoptions, especially on this date. Black Cat Appreciation Day is on August 17th every year.
The International Fund for Animal Welfare established the first International Cat Day on August 8, 2002. The honorary holiday takes place each year on this date. The holiday is meant to bring awareness to cat care and welfare. We believe that keeping cats indoors is a great way for cats and native wildlife to stay safe. To learn more about this issue, look at the American Bird Conservancy's Cats Indoors site.
Happy International Cat Day to all!

I wanted to share this tutorial video I found on YouTube that I used to repair a part of our cat tree. Our three kitties are master sisal scratchers and they started to unravel the rope on one of the main posts of their favorite cat tree. We've had this tree for almost 6 years.
The cats use the tree for napping, scratching, and as the end point after a round of zoomies across the living room. It's held up remarkably well, except one of the lower sisal-covered legs started to unravel after years of constant use.
I looked into cat tree repair and most of the tutorials I found required the use of staples or glue, or both. I looked a little deeper and found this great tutorial that uses no tools. All I had to do was get some new sisal rope. Check out this tutorial.
In my case I was replacing sisal rope with more sisal rope, so my finished product left two longer strings dangling. I tied toys to both of them and almost immediately after I put the tree back upright, Gumby started playing with one of the toys. It's been a couple of months since I made the repair (it was an early quarantine project) and it's holding up very well.

This highly rated rechargeable interactive cat toy is ready for play with just an hour and a half of charge time. The toy then provides up to four hours of fun play on the single charge.
