Review

“Cats love cardboard boxes, so why not use them to create a fun space shaped like a miniature sofa, a food truck, a rocket, a pyramid, a submarine? Cat lovers will also enjoy the ‘meet the models’ section.”—Booklist 

“Featuring step-by-step instructions (along with photos), [Cat Castles] shows you how to give your cat comfy play spaces that are inexpensive and eco-friendly.”—Catster

“Each project is beautifully illustrated and accompanied by gorgeous photos of very happy cats enjoying their new hangout. I guarantee you’ll be inspired to pull out your glue gun!”—Hauspanther

“Beautifully illustrated with very detailed instructions for each project, this book will delight cat lovers who enjoy building things – and I bet it will delight kitties not just with the end product, but with the process of helping the human build the project.”—The Conscious Cat

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, inspirational, amazing, and makes it easy. Read for more, this is NOT a waste of money.
By Amazon Customer on January 20, 2019
I can make stuff on my own fine and I’m only 10. But it’s good to have inspiration. The book said to try different boxes to see what you’r cat prefers. I knew my cat (don’t laugh at her name) Sweetiepie prefers low ceilings and I only had one box, a nornstrum box, so I saw what I could make. It turns out my cat likes that better than my big project, an actual castle I tried to make for her from online. The point is, the book has good ideas and is very inspirational. And to the person who said “no exact measurements” is a bad thing, their wrong because all cats or kittens or tiny puppies are most likely different sizes and shapes. Yay Cat Castles!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Instructive Book (and, no, it doesn't come with cardboard!)
By DisneyDenizen on November 9, 2018
I purchased this book for my daughter for Christmas, because she has built two elaborate cardboard castles for cats, paint and towers and drawbridges and all. I thought this book might give her some additional ideas, tricks, and tips. It delivers.

First, there are very helpful sections on tools and techniques. Then the book launches into the actual projects. What I found especially helpful is that the book teaches several methods for making your own scratching pad or scratching post! There are also tips for making a few cat toys. Of course, creative cat abodes are the focus.

Note that the 1 and 2 star reviews are from people complaining about such things as that the book didn't come with cardboard (!) and that measurements aren't provided. First, measurements aren't necessary! You work with what you've got. Second, measurements actually ARE provided when necessary. I'm attaching two relevant photos. As for the book not coming with cardboard, clearly these are shoppers who don't order enough from Amazon. There's your cardboard right there.

One weakness is that the book really could include more elaborate structures, but it still deserves 5 stars. Also, once you get good at this, you can use the techniques and tips you've learned to create your own.
