So, my sister-in-law Jenni and her husband Ray have a cat, Petey. Though I am allergic to cats and thus keep my distance from Petey, by all accounts he is a cheery and delightful cat worthy of all the affection and adoration that can and should be heaped upon him. So over Thanksgiving weekend we heaped some on, and built him a new cat condo. Similar condos sell in pet stores and online for $3-400, and while we like Petey, I don’t think we like him that much. Jenni and Ray found nearly all the materials as leftover scraps from a carpet store, so it was very inexpensive to build.
