How to replace cat tree rope


Sisal Rope for Cat Trees - Size, Attaching, And Replacing

If your cat tree is looking a little ratty, it might be time for a refresh. Sisal-wrapped cat trees are one of the most common types of trees because sisal rope is sturdy, long-lasting, and satisfying to cats looking to sharpen their claws.

But scratching trees don’t last forever. If your tree is still sturdy, but the rope is torn or frayed, you don’t need to buy a new tree. Replacing the sisal rope on your tree is a cheap and easy way to extend its life. This article will help you replace the sisal rope so your cat can continue scratching on their favorite post.

Tools Needed

Here are some of the tools you’ll need:

  • Sisal rope
  • Measuring tape
  • Glue (hot glue or wood glue)
  • Scissors
  • Knife or box cutter (optional)
  • Staple remover (optional)
  • Staple gun and staples (optional)

Sisal Rope Sizes

Sisal rope comes in several sizes, but most scratching trees use ¼ inch or ⅜ inch rope. Thicker ropes are likely to be bulky and difficult to work with. You can use thinner sisal rope if desired, but it will use more rope.

How Much Sisal Rope Do I Need?

The best way to know how much rope you need is to measure. Use a flexible measuring tape to measure the circumference of your post, or use a string to find the length and then measure the string if you don’t have a flexible measuring tape. Then measure the height of your post.

If you are using ¼ inch rope, you will need two layers of rope for every inch of height, so your final rope amount will be: Circumference * Height (in inches) * 2

If you are using a ⅜ inch rope, you’ll need four layers for every inch and a half of height. Your final rope amount will be: Circumference * Height (in inches) * 2.67

Best Glue for Sisal Rope Trees

When you replace your sisal rope, you’ll need glue to hold it down. Hot glue is the most common type of glue used in scratching posts because it is non-toxic, sturdy, and can hold to rope, wood, cardboard, and other materials. When using hot glue, be careful as the glue can burn. It usually sets up within a few minutes. If you are worried about using hot glue, non-toxic wood glue is a good alternative. Wood glue doesn’t set up as quickly as hot glue, but it provides a very sturdy bond between the rope and the base.

How to Replace Sisal Rope in 6 Steps

1. Remove the rope from your scratching post.

If your rope is already coming off in places, you may be able to pull it off by hand. If not, use scissors to cut through the rope and get you started. You may need to pull out staples near the top and bottom of the post.


2. Clean remaining glue and sisal from the scratching post.

Using your fingers or a knife/scissor blade, scrape as much glue as you can from the post. This will create a cleaner surface to apply new rope.


3. Use glue to firmly attach your cord to the base of the post.

You might want to use staples near the beginning of the cord to further strengthen it.


4. Work your way up the post with the cord and glue.

Apply hot glue in a straight line, with a thicker bead every few inches. Press the cord down over the glue and hold until set. Work your way up the post in a spiral.


5. When you reach the top of the post, cut off any remaining cord.

Tuck the end of the cord snugly into the post and secure it with extra glue or another staple.


6. If using wood glue, allow it to cure for 24 hours or so before use.

Hot glue cures in minutes and should be good to go.

How Often to Replace Sisal Rope

How often you replace sisal rope depends on a lot of factors, especially how heavily your cat uses the post. Most sisal rope posts last between 6 months and 18 months before they need a refresh. You should always replace the rope if it is torn or hanging loose from the post. Loose loops of rope can be dangerous to cats and should be glued down or replaced.

How to Re-Sisal a Cat Scratching Post

Who has an old cat scratching post which needs the sisal rope replaced? We all have one, a warn out cat post that either needs to be fixed or tossed away.

As you know, they’re expensive and after a while, the sisal rope wears out and becomes far too frayed for the cat to use. Ours has been that way for a month or two, and Turbo has lost interest in it.

I think it’s because it’s so frayed his claws don’t have much to bite into anymore. It’s time to remove and replace the sisal on the cat scratching post!

Re-Sisal a Cat Scratch Post

If you’re new to my blog, Turbo is our cat. He’s a 5-year-old Munchkin cat we adopted about 3 years ago. In his previous life, he was a show kitty who won all kinds of different ribbons for strutting his stuff on the catwalk….that is where the term came from, right?

I don’t know – I have never been to a cat show, do they walk the cats around – like at a dog show? Hmm!

Nevertheless, cats don’t come much cooler than Turbo. He’s a polydactyl munchkin cat, which means he has extra toes and short legs.

He has a total of 22 toes and claws, and his little muscly arms are only a few inches long. He’s the typical rug hugging munchkin who loves to play and screech around the house as all cats do.

He’s also a mama’s boy, when he sits on mums lap and looks at you with those big Turbo eyes you can’t help but want to give him a treat!

Spoiling Your Cat with IAMS Treats

Munchkin cats are just like every other cat in the world, they love to be spoiled and our Turbo just happens to be a big lap cat who loves his belly rubbed.

He’s a very “good boy”, and he knows it. In turn, he gets spoiled with treats, almost daily! But, we also want him to be in good health, so we’re spoiling him with the new IAMS cat treats!

We like to give him the IAMS Hairball Care because it targets Turbo’s specific needs, and well — because who likes cleaning up hairballs? haha. Not me, as I’ve recently found out…

It’s kind of ironic that we’re talking about IAMS Hairball Care cat treats today on the blog.

We never thought about getting Turbo anything hairball related because he had never coughed up a hairball, at least since we got him. Well, last month he did.

We were not around when he hacked it up. We got home from dinner and I sat down on the couch, looked out the window and that’s when I saw it…Sitting right there on the window sill in front of Turbo’s cat perch.

WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?

I thought somehow a mouse got into the house and Turbo decided to chew it up and leave it mangled on the window sill… Nope, it would have had to have been a rat! It was huge! And gross!

It was his first hairball, in 3 years! Okay Turbo, time for some IAMS Hairball Care food and treats!

Some cats have extra great digestive systems that take care of the hairballs, some don’t, and apparently some store it up for years and hack it out while you’re gone so it looks like a mangled rat on your window sill when you come home. Crikey!

Either way, IAMS Hairball Care treats it is! And because he’s been extra good this winter, we’re going to give the IAMS Proactive Healthy Weight & Hairball Care Dry Cat Food a try, too.

The new reformulation allows us to customize his nutrition with treats, wet, and dry cat food too. Judging from his reaction to the bag, I think he may like it already, or maybe he thinks the IAMS kitty is his friend?

Awwe…

I’ll spare you photos of the hairball. I’m kidding, I did not take photos of it!

Let’s move on to re-roping the cat scratch post, yes?

Stop by Walmart, grab some sisal rope for your project, and of course, some IAMS cat treats to spoil your furbaby; be on the lookout for the IAMSâ„¢ Mega Bag cat treats!

Re-Rope a Cat Scratching Post

We’ll begin with our old, frayed cat scratch post.

You know, these things are expensive! I know we paid quite a bit for ours, I think it was somewhere just south of $100.

It’s a 30″ scratch post and it’s held up very well, considering how much Turbo loves to use it.

Here’s a picture of it the first day we got it — and yep that’s Turbo, instantly digging his claws into it! 🙂

And here it is now. As you can see, the entire center section where the cat claws worked their magic is where it is in desperate need of attention.

We can re-rope the entire thing just as well.

Figure out how much sisal rope you’ll need to replace. Simply measure the height of the post, measure the width of the rope (probably 3/8″), and measure around the post once.

How to Measure Sisal for Cat Post

Take the height (ours is 30″) divided by the width of the rope (3/8th inches or .375 inches), which equals 80. This means our rope wraps around the post roughly 80 times. Measure around the post, ours is 12″. So, 80 multiplied by the circumference of the post (12 inches) equals 960 inches, or 80 feet. This works out great mathematically for us, since our scratch post is 12 inches (1 foot) in circumference. It may not be so neat for your if your post is a different size, but the math is the same.

  • 30″ divided by .375″ = 80″
  • 80″ multiplied by 12″ = 960″ or 80 feet

A 100 foot roll of 3/8th inch sisal rope will work great for our cat scratching post.

Begin by removing the sisal rope from the cat tree.

Use scissors or a utility blade to get one row of rope clipped. From there you should be able to unwind the rope.

The rope for most quality scratching posts will not be glued on, they’ll only be tightly strung, which is how we’re going to string ours too.

Pro Tip: Remove any staples or fasteners with needle-nose pliers.

Once you’ve unwound the rope from the scratching post, you may have to remove some staples or small brads, maybe a bit of glue where the rope began or ended. Once the post is clear we’ll get our sisal rope ready.

Pro Tip: Keep the vacuum handy! Sisal is quite messy when it’s all frayed up from the cats. If you have sensitivities, you may also want to wear a dust mask.

At one end of the sisal, wrap a little bit of tape, about 1 to 2 inches high around the rope.

This will prevent any fraying from the starting point and help us secure the beginning point of the rope to the post. I used a 1.25″ screw, going through the tape to secure the beginning point to the base.

On your first wrap around the post, you can wrap over the screw so you’ll never see it.

Secure the sisal to the lowest point on the scratch post. Depending on the post material, you could secure it with a screw, staples, or a combination of fasteners and glue.

Once your rope is secured near the base of the cat scratcher, wrap it very tightly around the post. You can add a dab of glue every few rows if you find it necessary. But it really won’t be of much help once your cat begins scratching at it.

So, it’s important to wrap the sisal very tight around the post. You’ll also want to use your hands, standing above the cat scratcher, and press down to help tighten downward against the previous row of rope.

Tight around and tight down – both are key to a successful re-rope of your sisal rope cat scratcher.

Note: I have my cat scratcher on the table for pictures, but I moved it to the ground to get a better angle to tighten the rope.

Really press downward every couple of rows to tighten the rope as much as possible.

When you get to the top, secure the sisal just as you did with the bottom, a screw, staples or a combination of fasteners and glue. It all depends on the materials you’re working with.

Pro Tip: If you’re working with cardboard, insert a small block of wood inside the cardboard tube, carefully screw through the rope, into the tube, and secure it to the wood block.

All said and done, removing and replacing the sisal on our cat scratching post only took about 20-30 minutes time.

I would rate this as an easy DIY project. Look at Turbo just sitting in his cat perch catching some rays. See, I told you he was a good boy!

I hope now instead of tossing your scratch post, you’ll consider replacing the sisal on yours (it’s only a few bucks) and keeps your furball happy for many years to come!

Having a good cat post in the house is essential to helping Turbo stay happy and healthy.

He needs the post not only to scratch, but also to stretch his little legs and puffy chest. Aside from his newly roped cat scratch post, he’s loving his new IAMSâ„¢ cat treats!

Make a fun and inexpensive toy for your cat using just a cardboard box and a ball.

Kevin O'Mara/Flickr.com

Needed:

  • Cardboard box. The dimensions depend on the toy you are going to put inside. A long and almost flat box with a height sufficient for the toy, for example, a ball could freely roll inside.
  • Piece of cardboard. We will make a cardboard partition inside to divide the box into two parts.
  • Ruler.
  • Pencil.
  • Glue. Of course, superglue is better, but, in principle, any other will do.
  • Stationery knife.

1. Draw a line down the middle of the box, and then draw more several perpendicular to it every 10 cm (as in the photo below). Along these lines we will make holes.

2. Draw holes along the lines - circles arranged in a checkerboard pattern. But be careful with circles in the center, do not forget that there will be a partition in the middle.

3. Using cut out the circles you have drawn with a utility knife. It should turn out like this:

4. Now you need to make a partition. To do this, measure the height and the width of the box and cut out the corresponding wall from a piece of cardboard. If the cardboard is not enough durable, take several identical strips and glue them together.

5. Draw circle and cut another hole in the box through which you will push the toy inside.

Rest
Cat lying on side or stomach, breathing slow or normal. Legs are freely extended. The tail either just lies, or a little twisted.

Curiosity
Tail tip slightly trembles. Ears twitch. Looks intently and licks his lips. With a small excitement can hastily lick the paw.

Alertness
presses the tail to the body, and if it is standing, it can sharply swing it up and down. Pupils wide, ears upright. The mustache is directed forward.

Fear
Cats can demonstrate two emotions at the same time: fear and aggression. The pupils are dilated. The cat grumbles softly, and tail makes rotational movements. The ears are tense, pressed to the head.

Murmurcat Avatar Korra brunette 2 photos

My name is Murmurket Avatar Korra. I am a silver beauty of the Maine Coon breed, I am already three years old. We used to live with mom Ira and dad Sasha and their daughter Vika. We are my mommy Dusya, brother Aang and me, Korra (we were named after cartoon characters). Then Ira and Sasha had a son, I really liked to lie in bed with him and hide in his stroller. It smelled so good in there! And I climbed right up to the ceiling along the rope pipe that Papa Sasha made, and sat under the ceiling on a shelf. And then my brother and mother Dusya were taken to new homes, and I was left alone for a while. Soon they brought me a girlfriend - a white cat, Joe. Joe pestered me, didn't let me calmly poke my head out the window. Sometimes we acted hooligans together, weeded dill in a pot, rolled in the ground, it was fun. Then they took me to an exhibition for medals. I received a medal, but I really didn’t like it at the exhibition - they pulled me by the paws to show how big I am, my teeth looked (and I’m not a horse, I’m a kun!), And one cat told me - pretend that you are sick , and you will no longer be taken to the exhibition. I got bored, I felt sick, I became sad. And they found a new family for me, and my new mother's name is also Ira and also Litvinova! She sometimes says - oh, this is Santa Barbara! I don’t know who this Barbara is, but I often hear about her when my mother talks about me. I am the only cat here, and a small dog lives with us, according to his passport he is Boss Consulate Daniel, but everyone just calls him Danyusha. Before that, he lived with another cat for many years, his mother says - he is a cat Yorkie! I sometimes sniff him - he's some kind of cat-dog. Mom says that he is fourteen years old, soon to be fifteen. I tried to bend the claws on my paws, but lost count. Math is not my forte!

One aunt comes to us, she smells like other cats, and mother Ira calls her “daughter”. As if I don’t know that the daughters are small, like Vika, and this one is almost the same as mom. It's not clear, I'll have to think about it! And she keeps squeezing me all the time, pestering me like she doesn't have enough of her own cats!

In the new house, I was offered a soft carpet house Fluff called Brunetka, it is very pleasant to wallow on it, and it is very pleasant to sink your claws into it and imagine that I have caught a mouse or a bird! And such bumpers are comfortable so that I don’t fall off. And there is also a basket - it is not stuffy in it, no one sees me, and I am in the house! Even though I am a blonde, I really like Brunet's house! Only the house smelled a bit of other cats - a small one and a big one.

And then my wonderful house was sent to the dacha (this is a house with two floors, a long staircase that you can quickly run up and down, a lot of birds outside the window and beautiful fat flies in the attic, and I am the lord of the flies!). First, my house was taken apart, I desperately defended each part and sat on it until the last minute. I missed the house, looked for it all over the apartment, and was very happy when it was found in the country. People have nothing to do - for some reason they took it apart, then put it back together again. They are generally very strange, doing some senseless things. Sometimes they put me in a carrier, my mother and I get into the car, sit there, my mother talks to me, sometimes we even sit for two hours, and then we go out and go to the dacha. Why were they sitting in the car?

And sometimes my aunt, whom my mother calls daughter, comes to the dacha and brings with her those two cats that smelled of my beloved house. Once I was sitting on the stairs, and here was my aunt with cats on leashes. Why are they running around?

We are princesses! I'm going out into the street in a carrier. We even have Danyusha walking without a leash, and these are on strings. Worse than a dog) And I fluffed up my hair, arched my back and said loudly "SHA!" The cats squealed in surprise and fell down the stairs. I was very pleased with myself. There is no point in going to my dacha and catching my flies! The most little!

I know the big cat's name is Alpha and the little one is Ursula. Ursula and I are a bit similar, we are both silver Maine Coons. Only I am a calm princess, and she is a rabid squirrel (so my mother says). We could probably become friends, but I don't really want to, and Alpha won't let her. So we have one house for three at the dacha.

Rysiok Basic+ 2 photos

Hello! I am a real little Lynx from the shores of Lake Baikal. That's what my name is, Rysyok. I am a fidget, a wretch and a hooligan. Probably, for this my mistress does not have a soul in me. Looks after my health, proper development and buys me all the best. And if in the summer the hostess and I live in the country, then in winter I turn from a cat into a restless monkey. I like to hang on the curtains, climb right up to the ceiling and even jump up to the chandelier. I like to sit high - high and watch. Worrying about me (of course, about me, and not about the integrity of her apartment!) my hostess gave me a precious, magical, beautiful "Basik +"! The hostess assembled it herself according to the instructions. I helped her, of course, driving nuts and bolts across the slippery laminate.

We assembled the house quite easily. And I didn't even believe it for the first second... Oh, my cat's eyes!!! Before me appeared... the most magnificent. .. better than any gray mouse.. better than a fluffy bird... Mrrrr.... Only the owner of this complex can understand the delight. I have never been so happy, this feeling can only be compared with the first successful hunt))) now I spend whole days in games and entertainment and sleep on the upper balcony. And you should have seen how I can climb from a run to the very top! Sometimes I hide in a house. I sit there quietly, and only my two fluffy tassels stick out funny from the upper hole. I am a big cat and I need a big complex for games.

Fluffy made the best house for me, exactly what I need, a big and strong Maine Coon. And more... And also a complex of delicious milky color. Like boiled milk. The pile is gentle, it is very pleasant to touch it. And the guests, coming to our house, more than once said that they would like to stay and live in such a wonderful house. And I understand them well. This is a very durable house, able to withstand even a human kitten. We checked until the adults saw :)

My hostess takes her duties very seriously. I saw how she studies a lot of sites, choosing the most worthy for me. And she guessed. Guessed everything 100%. "Basik +" was presented to me in September. For the season of merciless exploitation, it is as good as new. Nothing was broken or torn anywhere. This complex, I am sure, will serve me for a long time and will make my well-fed trotting life more fun.

Thanks to Pushka for the wonderful, magnificent and very practical "Basik +".
And now I will murmur poems to you))

I climb the closet quickly, like an arrow
And I look royally at everyone from the balcony.
One jump - and to hell with the table
A large bouquet of peonies flies to the floor.

Is it a puddle on the floor?
Take it higher - this is the sea with fish.
Now I'll catch her, bring her -
The hostess will meet you with a joyful smile!

Yes, are these curtains? - nonsense!
On them I will reach the peak of Everest,
I'm flying into a pot of flowers and water
It will now mix with the ground like dough.

One more jump, getting ready for war!
The sideboard crackles, I'm flying, but it doesn't hurt me
I'm climbing up the wall to the chandelier
The hostess will be happy and satisfied.

Until Fluff made for me
Couch, house, playground
I had fun at home anyhow,
Causing damage like three horses.

A couple more photos))) after all, it’s absolutely impossible to resist))
Is he really cool?)

With the cat house "Basik Plus"
I'm not afraid of repairs.
I'm contentedly purring,
I'll sharpen my claws.

It's great for me to ride here,
And of course, it's sweet to sleep ...

now everything)) Mrrr)
With love, Lynx :) 1.5

Perseus 3 photos

Salut, Fluff and other cats!!! It's definitely not possible without me!

Let me introduce myself to the Don Sphinx - Perseus. Mom affectionately calls me Peach, and sometimes Perseo - in the Italian manner, but more often she calls me Mouse . .. why, I don’t understand, because they are small and scary mice, and I, I’m handsome. My mother, that ... little thing ... is constantly working, studying ... and catching her to explain something, this is a whole military operation. So this time, I explained to her for a whole month that I need space for creativity, for jumping and flying, that our two-room apartment is too simple for me, I want something ... special. And you won't believe it, two months ago some completely unknown person brought MY TREASURE!! This incredible sports-sleeping-entertainment complex. Mom said that it was made specially and only for me, and delivered to us in Kamchatka. Especially for me, it's good that my uniqueness and importance did not go unnoticed by her!!. This complex, it's fantastic...... I swear to you, I can jump and jump on it all day long. From the very top tier, my whole territory is perfectly visible.... I see: what my mother does when she comes home, what the birds do outside my window, when the neighbor Sharik goes for a walk. .. absolutely everything. When it gets boring to watch, with just one jump I find myself in a hammock and, having settled there comfortably, sleep for a couple of hours. When I wake up, I open my left eye and stretch out my paws to stretch after sleep ..... you want your paws up, you want down .... an option for any mood, and, by the way, it is very changeable for me .... At hours, when I get tired of my mother sitting and constantly tapping her fingers on some kind of gray rectangle, I .... (of course, on purpose) become a hermit - I turn around and proudly leave hiding in a house prudently made in the lower part of my complex. A great place to comfortably wait until my mother realizes that she can’t do without me. By the way, my mother does not always bring the things I need to the house... but this time, she has surpassed herself.... I think that she understands this, especially when she sees my contented face looking at her from my high-rise toys..... And yes, it seems to me, my mother said that my complex was made on the basis of some kind of "Boboshka" and "Garoshik".
