Looking for a way to give support for the falling ceiling in the cat climbing tree. Currently there is a fast fix with what I had around, but that won't last for long.

I Would prefer some sort of jack instead of chopping a piece of wood until it fits correctly.

Repair in 3 simple steps

  • Remove the plastic support
  • Replace with a length of wooden dowel, probably don't need to screw it down if you get the length right
  • Place kitty on a diet
  • I can do the first 2, option 3 is risky :) Mar 17, 2021 at 12:21

screw a block into the side panel so it supports the top. You can also screw the top into that.


For something small like that, where bracing can be on the inside and doesn't have to be pretty, 1/2" or 1" angle brackets should do the trick quite nicely.

Something like this:

Put one in each corner on the inside. If kitty is getting pudgy, go with a larger bracket.
