Silky sisal!  wow, I want that web address!

I hope your kitties like it.  I've never been too concerned with the sisal, except for how to replace it.  I always figured its a natural fiber, will break down and digest (or throw up like grass), and its what my cats love to use to exercise their claws.  But I too have an old tree with shredded sisal, so i will be on the look out, now.

I loved the photos on the site with the walks and various ways to use the sisal rug.  Yes, that sisal looks a lot sturdier than what is on cat trees.

I actually was able to find a cat tree "for seniors" lol that uses a "silky" type of sisal.  We've actually used them before as scratcher poles but I'd never seen it used for a tree.  Fingers crossed that I made a good choice!  I got two - they should arrive in a few days!

That looks really easy and quick. So nice not to have to deal with all those little strings at the end of the project!

No one ever showed me how to do this properly, and this guy has a great method, I think.  What do you think?

I would say get a new one. Stormy also likes to eat sisal bits and gets an upset tummy.

We had a 3 foot tall kitty tree with one leg of sisal rope.  Kozy decided he liked to eat the sisal.  He puked one time with pink-tinged fluid and sisal rope pieces.  I spent an hour removing the sisal from the tree down to bare wood.  He doesn't spend much time on it anymore.   Roll Eyes

It's really difficult to find cat trees without sisal.  Maybe I need to grow a real tree indoors!   Smiley

I've always wondered... is there a certain timing for getting a new cat tree?  I know a worn one has their smells and that's a good thing, but the sisal rope is so shredded that it goes everywhere and I wonder how much goes into their tummies.

Or is that nothing to worry about?

I've always hesitated to feed my cats pork.  I know too much about pigs, I guess.  However, I'd be willing to try this with my cats.  I think they are sick of chicken. :/

I love that this company broke down the cost per day to feed, too!
