The rope on the cats’ claw posts/towers were pretty much shredded, and falling off.
Went to Bunnings, got a Heavy Duty Staple Guns, some heavy duty staples, and some of that scritchy rope. Came home. Went back to Bunnings as the staple gun didn’t work (my purchase curse is still in full effect.) Exchanged it for a different one.
Came back home, and stripped the old worn/shredded rope from one of the cat tower posts, and re-wrapped it. Looks brand new.
One down, two to go! Took all of 10 minutes to do it.
