Buffalo Creek Farms New Cat Tree

This is the cat climber we use in our cattery. We would suggest that you make sure the climber you buy has rope on the posts. The ones with fabric on the post do not last as long. They are not hard to¬† put together but there are a few tricks we thought we would share. It takes us about 30 to 45 minutes to put one together but we have done it many times. The time may depend on how many “helpers” you have.

Here is the box the cat climber comes in. It weighs around 754 lbs.

OK, Cleo and I are ready to start. I have suggested she get off the box but I am not sure she agrees.

You will need a hex head screw driver, pair of scissors and a step stool. If you are tall you may not need the step stool but this cat tree is 72″ tall and you need to get to the top. The allen wrench comes with the kit.

Here are the directions

Here is Cleo making sure she understands the direction. It is important to read the directions before you begin.

We lay out all the pieces and make sure they are there before we begin. I have acquired several more helpers. I bet they will be a big help.

Here is where it gets tricky. You have to line up the platform, post and sleeper holes with out being able to see them. I have found if you take the allen wrench and insert it in the first hole in the sleeper and shift till you find the hole in the plat form and then the hole int he post it helps. After you get everything lines up insert the screw.

Reinforcements have arrived once again to make sure construction is going well.

Isn’t that cute the babies are helping sort the screws

DPP_0036

uhmm where did the screws go? Babies! We do not recommend putting the kitten in charge of the screws.

DPP_0002

Now that we have found the screws. Next are the post for the top perches

DPP_0003

Cleo once again checking for stability. I see Reo has shown up. She can be a fair weather friend.

DPP_0033

Now that we are almost done Reo has decided that tree is hers.

Here are are all done. The steps are the last thing. They are attached using 2 hex heads screws that are supplied but the screw driver is not.

At Buffalo Creek Farms we use the breeze system for all of our adults and new babies.

Here is what you get in the box

DPP_0005

Here is the drawer with the pad. You get 4 pads with the system. Four pads is enough for 1 month. The pad is thinker the a regular puppy training pad but similar.

DPP_0006

The drawer slides easily in to the slot. Make sure the pad does not get caught when you slide int he drawer.

DPP_0007

Now the drawer is hidden.

Breeze box with bag of pellets

DPP_0009

Just pour the pellets in. You will notice they are dust free. They do not dissolve so no messy bits

DPP_0010

You find the pellets much cleaner then other litters because it is heavier and is not has easy to kick out of the box. You will get some but because of the weight they do not spread like other litters.

DPP_0012

The pellets are solid

DPP_0013

Box and all takes about 5 minutes to put together. No tools required.

This is the system we use at Buffalo Creek Farms. It eliminates cat litter completely. We order our pads and pellets on Amazon in bulk as a grocery item. On Amazon the pellets and pads in bulk is about a 6 month supply. The boxes are about 20x12x6 so not huge to store. Best it is free shipping and UPS just delivers it when you need it. All kittens start on this system because very young kittens like to put everything in their mouths and eating regular cat litter is not good. The kitten are introduced to regular cat litter between 6 to 8 weeks. That way when they go home if that is what you choose they will know have regular cat litter is. We do not recommend starting any kitten with crystals corn etc.. simply because they will not know what to do with it and may mistake it for a sand box to play in. We never recommend the crystals as they are toxic. The kittens always have access to the breeze system some prefer it because it is cleaner. The kittens do not end up with litter stuck on their feet. We prefer it because a few pellets are easy to sweep up. Cat litter gets every where is is very hard to get up. Regular cat litter is also heavy to lug in and out of the cattery. We find the over all cost equivalent to a good kitty litter.
