Shorty Post- DIY Cat Scratching Post

Como van tus vidas?  This is a quick little post for me to boast about my husbo, Greer.  He is talented and creative and I love his infinite good ideas.

We recently adopted a starving little 4 week old kitten.  My sister found the scrawny thing on our parent's back porch and immediately called me.  I've been saying for about 2 weeks that I want a kitten and poof!  Here she is.  So Marzipan is now a little over 5 weeks and is s-p-u-n-k-y.  Not wanting to spend money on what he can do himself, Greer threw together a scratching post for her.

He cut two blocks of wood and screwed them together.  He then attached them to a flat wood base.  He used thick twine and wrapped it around the two blocks, just like we did for the wedding vases.  He picked up two springy door stoppers and attached these at different heights to the scratching post.

Voila!  A DIY cat scratching post!  Marzipan likes to pretend she is King Kong.  She sits on the top and swats at whoever walks by!


  1. I can't wait to see her again. Kudos to Greer on the fabulous scratching post!

  2. Great idea! So creative you two! Share some please? :)
