    Not what I expected

    By on

    Not what I was expecting. You definitely need more than just “everyday household items” for these projects, which I will not be buying.

    Our cats love these cat castles!!

    By on

    The book was pretty much everything I expected - easy to follow instructions on how to make your own custom cat beds/play areas. The materials were not hard to come by either. I'm no handyman or artist, but the two I've built so far have turned out great and the cats really enjoy the new digs.

    Product labeling not clear - these are not castles

    By on

    This is just a book that tells you how to make the castles if you happen to have the right size and thickness of cardboard. This is NOT a book of paper/cardboard that you could use to make the castles. Misleading marketing and misleading product packaging
