If you have cats or have set foot in a pet store, you’ve seen those beige carpet-covered cat towers with built in scratching posts and toys. Unless you’re ready to fork over a good chunk of money, you’re going to be hard-pressed to find a tower which is even marginally aesthetically pleasing.

I’ve spent 3 years staring at this particular cat tower purchased at PetSmart, and was in the throes of whatever the “writers block” equivalent for fiber artists is when I got a brilliant idea: YARN BOMB THE DAMN CAT TOWER.

I wanted it to be vibrant and colorful, so I dug deep into my yarn stash when working on this project. I only spent a few nights working on this before it was finished and ready to sew on to the tower. It was love at first sight (for me… the cat could care less).
