Question by wonder_woman78au: What carpet is best suited for cat trees/condos?
Im going to attempt to make my own cat tree, the unique looking ones that really do resemble a tree, i have plans, but they don’t mention what carpet is best suited in making cat trees and condos, anyone have any suggestions? or is it bascially just what im prepared to pay for?

Cheapest – that’s what I choose.
A good way to find carpet is to keep an eye out on trash pickup day.
When carpet is replaced, the old stuff is often rolled up and set out for pickup.
If you look at a carpeted room, there will be places with little, if any, wear or dirt.
If you spot someone with carpet in the trash, stop and check it out.
Another possibility is carpet stores. Maybe you can sweet talk them out of odds and ends and cutoffs.
Now, I guess you could do a lot of research on the types of carpet available, what weaves would stand up best to a cat, etc. but, hey, why waste the time?
You’ll have to replace the carpet sometime anyway, so use whatever you can get your hands on for free or at very little cost.
