Well Swirl’s tower has finally arrived. We got it Monday and it was really easy to put together. Eric and I did in in less than a half hour. I guess this officially makes the crazy cat lady, but whatever. Swirl didn’t really know what to do at first. I tried putting him on it but he jumped right off. We tried to bribe him by putting treats on the lower levels and his night time food on another level. Still he had no interest in it at all. That was not a good sign. Actually he sat on the floor and glared at me when I put his food on the new tower. I’m sure he was thinking, “You evil bitch, how dare you put my food in a place I can’t reach it”. It really made me sad, I spent all this money on this new toy and Swirl prefers the old one. Great, another piece of useless furniture taking up space in the house. So last night, I switch the spots of the new tower with the other tower. At first Swirl sat on his old tower glaring at me, he was pissed because I moved his old tower away from the window. After a little coaxing with the rope toy on the new tower, Swirl finally got interested in it. And after that he started climbing the tower, sitting in the little house or on one of the platform, looking outside. He seems to love it now. He hasn’t ventured up higher than the house part, but we are working on it…I hope my silly cat isn’t afraid of heights! I’m sure in the beginning he probably thought he wasn’t allowed on it or something. Who knows, but doesn’t this look like a cat who loves his new tower?
