Cat Shelf 3

On the ground floor, we have a room
used for office/storage/workout.

This is a kitty walk built over a desk

I agree, Goro.

So off to the home improvement store.

We got the same shelves
as we used in cat shelf project #1.

But got different kind of fabric this time to make
non-slip surface: Carpet. We want to thank Layla
from Cat Wisdom 101 for her advice!

Supervisor Goro

Finally shelves are up. 
Goro wasted no time checking out.

He seems to like them :-)

As expected, Niko was hesitant at first.

But once he was up on the shelf,
Niko got confidence.

Now the office/storage/workout room has
become office/storage/kids' playroom.



  1. Oooooh! You have a cat superhighway! We love it very much. :)

    Goro and Niko, there is plenty of time for workouts later. Relaxing is important, too! :)


  2. LOVE the shelves--no hardware shows! Must go investigate...

  3. Wow, your boys got the another playroom to be with you two♡♡♡ I really smiled with the scenes of Goro-chan(*^_^*) Reminded me that my husband was told that he was like a supervisor from my neighbor when we had his hobby room after his retirement p;)
    I LOVE the picture second from the last showing iko-chan look SO comfortable in the chair like shelf.

    中国地方に、梅雨明け発表出ました。外は晴れてかなりの暑さです(^^;) 空き家の実家、草抜き済ませておいて良かったです、ハハ。

    I hope you will have a wonderful coming weekend.

    Sending you lots of love and hugs to my dear Japanese friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

  4. Your boys are so lucky to have you and your husband. Have fun Goro and Niko!

  5. They are the most lucky cats in the world. You KNOW just what a cat likes and wants! Up on the shelf...where did you get that chair that looks like a couch? Did you make it for them?

  6. Wow, love the Catification Phase 3, it rocks bigtime! So happy both Goro and Niko are enjoying it, very cool. What great Pawrents you are! Have a wonderful week my boys!

  7. How cool, I will have to get my Mummy and Daddy to get me some of those. Enjoy your lovely shelves. :)

  8. You are such lucky boys to have handy parents who are building all this cool stuff for you!

  10. You kitties are SO lucky! How come my human can't make stuff like this?!

  11. We LOVE your superhighway! Woo hoo! We really need to work harder to convince Daddy (especially) that we NEED a superhighway. You boys are so lucky!

  12. ( narrowly narrowly eyes with jealousy )

  14. Your humans are THE BEST! Those shelves are fantastic and your dad sure is handy. Did he use glue on the backs of the carpet pieces, to stick them to the shelving? (We guess yes.)

  15. Dearest Tamago,
    Lovely photos from a fun play room for Goro and Niko. They look quite happy with the results.
    When it rains, ours are in the garage and find all a spot to climb on; they love doing that! Window sill they can jump on from the top of our Toyota RAV4 and lounge in the cat bed. On top of a shelf etc. etc.
    Sending you summer hugs,

  16. Very cool cat shelves! We did not put carpet on ours, but I've been thinking of adding some, or something that has a bit of grip.

  17. Thanks for the shout out. You did an amazing job. It all fits without being obviously for cats.

  20. Eu adorei essas prateleiras, Goro e Nico são sortudos!

  21. Wow, what an amazing playroom ...
    I can see Goro and Niko are having fun with it :-)
    And Goro is a great supervisor ... so very cute !
    Have a nice week,

  22. Niko and Goro, you have the best mom and dad EVER! Your home is a cat's dream come true.

  23. that's it, we need to light a fire under our mom's you-know-what! :D we have serious cat shelf envy :) Goro, Niko, your play room is way cool!

  24. We love your shelves! We've been bugging the mom to install some shelves for us but she's not very handy...and neither is the dad-guy. We may have to hire someone!

  25. Brilliant !
    I especially love the very small perches by the door. They remind me of the pail full of water trick when a person opens the door.
    Do you have kitties dropping down on you ?
    I was telling daughter about the kitty shelves in your home today !

    cheers, parsnip

  26. Very nice walkways. Can your Dad give my hubby some lessons?

  27. Looks like the cat makes the most out of the space.

  28. Looks great! mustn't show that to The Crew or they'll want

  29. It's like a cat paradise there, your babies are so lucky to live in a place where they can explore, and have fun.

    And I bet they totally appreciate it.


  30. You are such lucky kitties! You have smart pawrents too - our mom bean would be hopeless in putting up shelves like that. Enjoy!

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  31. Cool! In my next new house I'll have a corridor that will be perfect for a cat "fairground". For that, I need your advice: how we put the acrpet (glue? nail?). Thank you! Goro and Niko will have a lot of time for fun now!

  32. You boys have the best parents! They know what makes their kids happy! I would like to take a turn if you don't mind a lady cat for a little while. If you meow that it is OK, I will hop in my pink tunnel. Meow at me later? xxooox

  33. Looks like now YOU GUYS get the workout. Those shelves are super!

  34. ¸.•°♪

  35. Lucky you! Wish i can teleport over there!

  36. I love all of the shelves you have put up for the kitties! I just have to do this now too! What a great idea. The carpet addition is nice too. I bet your boys are having a blast on those!!

  37. Oh those shelves are just super. What a great Dad to do all that for you and I bet the carpet made a big difference. Have a great time up there.
