Got An Abyssinian With A Zany Personality? It’s Time You DIY a Cat Tree for It

While many cats are known for their lazy, relaxing, and let-me-rest-on-the-couch-all-day personality, there are some who are always a little too excited and upbeat. Just throw towards them a woolen string, paper ball or any mobile toys and they will be happily engaged for hours. Abyssinian cats belong to that second category of cat breeds.



Although a cat’s breed doesn’t necessarily depict its personality, most Abyssinian cats have a larger than life attitude and love to stay on their toes all day rather on the couch. They are fun-loving, intelligent and highly energetic. However, keeping them engaged can be a challenge for some pet owners. But why worry when these crazy DIY cat trees are enough to keep them stimulated and entertained for hours. Wanna learn how to make one? Let’s begin.

Cylinder Cat tree:

Okay fine, not a tree but it does serve the same purpose, doesn’t it? if your Abyssinian loves playing hide and seek, it is going to love this one. Get on board with this duo and learn how to make one for your feline.

Cat tree –literally:

Because the word cat tree has the word tree in it, this young man decided to make one in the literal sense. Using some old tree branches and sisal rope, the final result looks much better than the many you find in a local pet shop with big price tags.

Stacked blocks cat tree:

This one is another creative take on the cat tower/tree thing. It uses some old wooden boxes or blocks stacked onto one another and nailed down. The little holes allow for some fresh air to pass through in case your cat decides to sleep in one.

Ladder cat tree:

Using an old ladder, approximately 3 to 5 inches long, this next DIY is an amazing and cost-efficient cat tree for your little kitty. Jus see how easily the lady one in the video below turned an old rusty ladder into something this spotless and helpful.

Paper tray cat tree

Last but not the least, we have this simple DIY using a paper tray, some twine, and wood blocks to form the holding blocks. You can take it up a notch by adding more paper trays if you have more than one Abyssinian in the house or just want to have something more elaborate and customized than this. Once done, don’t forget to send us pictures of your masterpiece.

Until next time, happy DIY-ing our fellow pet owners!
