Climb Every Bookcase, Cross Every Shelf

I've been thinking of creating some climbing spaces for Saturn and Pluto. Maybe a sturdy shelf high up on the wall of the family room, so they can watch their world from on high.
I've read suggestions for how to put together climbing spaces and I want to share them with you. (Without turning your house into one big cat gym!)
- Lay some sturdy shelving between two tall pieces of furniture or even between two sets of cabinets.
- Put a shelf above a doorway. Just make sure it’s strong enough and wide enough for your cat to lay on.
- Connect a few of these high spaces so she can run all through the room or even through the house!
- Arrange a few pieces of furniture from shortest to tallest, to help your cat get up in her “tree.” Or brace a carpet-covered board against her high-up perch, and let her claw her way up.
How do you help your kitty reach for the sky?
