How to Build Your Own CH Cat Walker for $20
We all want to do what’s best for our CH kitties, but sometimes that can be very expensive.
For example, if you’ve wanted to buy a walker for your CH cat, you’ve found that commercial pet walkers sell for several hundred dollars, which isn’t practical for many budgets.
I’ve also seen some shelters create walkers for their CH kitties, but some look too complicated to replicate.
Fortunately, these walkers aren’t your only option — you can now make your own for $20!
This fantastic homemade CH cat walker was dreamed up and created by Susan Mertz and her husband. As I understand it, they created their first walker for their CH cat Scout.
I personally consider Susan and her husband to be the “poster children” of the walker for CH cats; early last year they posted a video of their CH kitty Scout using his homemade walker. Since then, they’ve received numerous requests to build these carts for other folks’ CH cats. They were even kind enough to donate a few.
The idea has become so popular, the other day the couple released a tremendous CH walker tutorial on YouTube. I was so impressed with it, that I wanted to share it here, in case you or someone you know may need a cart for their pet.
All supplies can be found at your local hardware store (they list all of the necessary supplies at the end of the video), and the process really is quite simple. However, if you’re not very handy, I would suggest building it with someone who would be capable of sawing and drilling holes into the CPVC pipe. Some light sewing is also required.
Have you built your own CH cat walker? How was the process? Do you think you’ll build one for your cat now? Please share in the comments!
