All the colored parts is just vet tape wrapped around the pvc for grip...self adhesive and never falls off.
Is the base a cat litter tray, and what size?

I want to pick up the materials in the morning.

The base tray is actually the overflow pan they use under washing machines in case there are spills. You can get it at home depot. It's good way to catch the food spills and poop. You should get it as big as you can.

Thank you! I didnít go this morning for this other stuff because my wife had other ideas for my life.

Iím leaning towards 3/4Ē PVC, which has an outside diameter of 1Ē. For a YNA, is that okay, or should I go bigger?

I ordered the tape, arriving tomorrow.

Re: At my wits end

Well what a change a few weeks makes. I still get the occasional morning chatter and a few late afternoon screams which is perfectly normal but aside from that it's mostly silent in the house throughout the morning and afternoon while I'm working.

See photo below. Almost done.

I need more vet wrap, some rope thingies Iím goona hang like you, and I also made that little square thing you have with the rope, but no rope yet. Iím a little worried about doing something that will hurt him.

Doing a swing now, something really long where he can swing and flap his a** off.
