Being the crazy cat lady that I am, I've been searching for a decent looking cat tower for quite some time now. Finally, I found Whisker Studio. They have a customizable "Elevation Modular Cat Tower". What I like most about this tower is that it doesn't take up too much space, including the base. The kidney shaped shelves make it look more like a decorative sculpture than a cat tower, and the usage of IKEA parts make it really accessible as a DIY. Taking it one step further, I decided to wrap the pole with rope so that it doubles as a scratcher too. Hopefully now they will leave our new chair alone!
