Damned cats. They are doing to the new cat tower what they've done with both of the cat trees that I bought them, and ignoring it. The first cat tree that I bought was a big, sturdy expensive cat tree that I was pretty proud of after I had put it together. It nearly reaches to the ceiling, and I was sure they'd love it. As it happens, they do love it, but only after they ignored it for six months. I'm not exaggerating either. If I tried to put them in the cat tree, they would scramble as if they were going to die if they touched it. Finally, about six months later, I came down one morning to find two of them lying at different levels of the cat tree as if it was home to them. That's what they're doing with the cat tower. Not one cat has touched it.
