Miss Feebee's New Scratching Post

This is my little Miss Feebee, do you think she will appreciate all my work today making this little scratching post? I sure hope so, it was a lot of work. But maybe she is worth it. After all she's my baby.




Last week I went to a new thrift store on the other side of Fort Worth and found this spool. It was made to hold some kind of wire. I saw it and thought that would make a neat scratching post for my Miss Feebee, and the price was good, only 99 cents. So I put it in my basket. When I got ready to pay out it was half price. So they almost gave it to me. Well yesterday I cut two round boards to fit on each end. I put one on and took it out back and filled the tube with rocks to give it some weight. Then I put the other round board on and wrapped it all in batting. Today I got out my material and covered the whole thing. Now I just hope she uses it.




This is Miss Feebee's new scratching post, at least I hope she accepts it and uses it. She has been scratching on an old chair I have and I want to make her stop. So I thought I would give her a piece of furniture all her own. I even used real nice upolstery and gave her some tassels to play with. Do you think she could be kind of spoiled? Really? I know one thing she keep me hopping. She is full of mischief. I'll be glad when this baby stage is over!!! Maybe she will settle down.



Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I've got a new project for tomorrow so I guess I'll be busy. Maybe I can even find a few garage sales since it is so warm. Up in the seventies. Take care.
Smiles,
Pat

I LOVE that!! Maybe that's what I should do. Make a scratching post that looks like furniture. Brilliant! As he walks right past the 35 dollar scratching post and tears into the couch. Or trys to before I catch him.

Oh I love the new scratching post does Ms Feebee? She sure should! Pretty fancy! Did you find any good garage sales? I had such a great weekend. And I didn't see it until I was leaving on Sunday but, THIS was the weekend for Affair of the Heart & I was in Oklahoma City from 1:00 Saturday until about 2:00 today. I saw the sign on the way OUT of town. :( Work all day tomorrow will try to catch up with you via the phone on Tuesday. Oh, that pillow was similar but not the same one. Glad I got a photo of it the other day while we were in there!
