Hi, Azzu --

My neighbour made a lovely, simple climbing post by wrapping sisal rope around 2 long PVC tubes. He got both the rope and the tubes at the local hardware store in Brickfields. He leans the wrapped tubes at an angle, going from the floor to a corner of the ceiling, and his cat goes up and down very happily.

Good luck!

Try Ace Hardware. I bought mine there. They also have alternatives, you may use other types of coarse rope, just make sure they are not the oiled type. as long as it's corasr, ur cats will be fine.

Good luck

Where is this Mr. Lim? Where to get sisal rope at JB? Had been searching sisal rope like the 'tarik tali game' for quite some time but failed. I ended using nylon rope but my cat will be happier if i' using sisal rope. below is my DIY scratching post.

I'm still searching Sisal rope for my 2nd DIY scratch post. Been to many hardware store and craft & wedding craft but still no sisal rope.

Noami: Nilai 3 ke ada sisal rope tu? Boleh spesifikkan kedai mana tak sebab kalau confirm ada boleh singgah bila saya pergi outstation kat KL

Hi Azzu, I recently bought cat stuff (bed, litter box, food bowls, scratching post (tree-like), etc) so they are brand new but due to unforeseen circumstances, I can't have the kitten. If you're interested, please let me know, I can sell it to you for a cheaper price. Thanks.
