Fact: cats are in charge of us, not the other way around. It’s not even close. And Robert Rogalski knows all about it. Rogalski is an illustrator, sculptor, and model maker, and he created and installed a fake tree in a friend’s house that turned out to be a big hit…with the person’s cat, of course.

Rogalski said,

“First I design and build to the specific needs of the location, and my clients,” Rob told Bored Panda. “Each tree is different, it is an organic process. For Permanent Installations, like cat trees, furniture, beds, reading nooks etc. I start by constructing a wooden armature, to give structure, then I attaché, then carve sheets or blocks of foam that are then covered with a paper pulp/particle clay. That is then mixed with heavy duty wood glue.. (or even fiberglass resin, but I prefer not to use fiberglass) This is extremely durable.”

He continued,

“For something that needs a little less structure, or is temporary, like a theatrical set, or storefront display I’ll build “a tree” out of cardboard, and paper mache. Sometimes I’ll do a mix of both techniques. This is still very durable.”
