So what did my boyfriend get me for my birthday? A cat tree. Yep. Don't worry, I'm not upset because I don't really care about birthday gifts. It is one of the funniest gifts I've received from him to date, however.
For a few months I've debated whether I wanted to return the cat tree or just put it together. I'm horrible at returning things and finally just decided to put the thing together. It's a small cat tree and was easy enough to put together. Except for the scratching board ramp that goes in the front. There was no way that thing would screw on to where it was intended to go so I just decided to forget about it.
After putting it together, I wanted to show it to Callie. I picked her up and proceeded to try and put her inside. Well, she wasn't having any of that. The hidey hole compartment is definitely not made for big cats. In fact, it seems more like a cat tree for kittens.
|This is as far as I go, lady.|
Now Callie's (er, my?) cat tree sits empty and unused. She doesn't even care to sit on top of the hidey hole. Callie and I have to figure out what to do with this thing now. I would say this is the perfect excuse I need to adopt a kitten. Maybe I can give my boyfriend one for Christmas. ;) (Even though the kitten would really be for me.)
Most likely, I'll end up taking our tiny cat tree birthday gift over to the shelter. I know there are probably lots of kittens there that could put it to good use.
