Be sure to wrap carpet tightly as you go, starting in the middle of the backside. - Carpet the top rails, leaving the bottom and back of them bare as well - Carpet the ledge wrapping the carpet around all sides. Using 45 degree cuts at the corners tends to work best (stopping your cuts about 1” from the wood). This takes practice, just take your time. 4 - Install the top rails lining them up on the edge of the ledge with the back flush with the back of the ledge where it will butt against the wall. Use 2 2.5” wood screws per rail going from the bottom of the ledge up in to the rails. 4 - Find your wall studs where you will be installing the corner ledge and determine the install height (the top of the supports will match the top of your pole height) 5 - Drill holes through supports and install each one in to at least two studs using 3” wood screws, 1 screw per stud is more then enough. 6 - Install the ledge on top of the supports using two 2.5” wood screws in to each support from the top down in to the supports. 7 - Install the pole, place under the ledge at desired location, make sure the pole is level on all sides, insert 3-4 3” wood screws through the ledge in to the pole 8 - If possible, use two 2.5” wood screws and toenail the bottom of the pole in to the floor. If installing on a hard surface like tile, putting a furniture non slip pad under the pole before install should reduce any movement. 9 - Release the beasts to enjoy their new pad! Tips: -When installing new carpet in your home order a few yards extra and ask installers to save any large scraps. This makes any cat trees/ledges you build blend in much better with your home -To find inexpensive carpet ask carpet retailers if they have any small inexpensive remnants or scraps. -Wrapping carpet can take some trial and error, building a small cat scratcher is a good way to test out techniques and tools. -If you have older cats I would suggest building a shorter pole or building it in a place that the cats can jump half way down on something else. My cats have learned how to rotate on the pole and go down backwards, but not all kitties do. -This does NOT have to be installed in a corner, we have done a slightly smaller ledge (15” x15”) and used just one support on the wall just fine. -This is a great option to put on the side of furniture where a cat is damaging the furniture by jumping on it. Our first version of this was for protecting our tall entertainment center. The Pet Meadow Crew: Dexter, our patriarch, is 18 and is a devon rex/shorthair mix Mia is our 5 yr old spotted bengal, born 2/2011 Max is our newest addition, born 10/2015 Reece is our ever patient lab, she is 3 years old in May. Adding to the chaos is our toddler Adeline :) Bengal Cat Tips: Bengal cats are quite stunning and exuberant fun cats, but they are definitely NOT for everyone. I am a stay at home mom who daily participates in exercising and entertaining our crew. We accept that we need lots of cat trees and no expensive furniture. They do much better in pairs having a fellow bengal to wrestle, chase and romp with of similar energy level. Bengals can sometimes be overwhelming to other non active cats. A bored bengal is a bengal in trouble!! Do you research and if you truly decide a bengal is right for your family, then find a good responsible breeder and spay and neuter your new kitten! Otherwise, just enjoy the fun videos of bengals :) Passed on to the Rainbow Bridge: Bayou (marble bengal boy) - ~ 17 yrs old passed in Sept 2015 (cancer) Cosmo (grey tabby) - 18 yrs old passed in 2013 (kidney failure) Asia (spotted bengal) - 2 yrs old in May 2011 (feline dysautonomia) They are all greatly missed and loved

Need a silly t-shirt to surprise a friend with? Printing it yourself is the cheapest way to make that happen! Kids can even get the hang of printing VERY quickly and be apart of the entire process, which is awesome! Here are a few things that I didn’t cover in the video that I think will give you better results. Use high dpi screens. These provide finer detail, and have significantly improved my prints. Have someone hold your frame so that you can use two hands to evenly pull the squeegee. If you don’t have access to a dryer for heat setting, you can cover the print with a piece of paper and iron it for a minute. If using a dark material, look for an ink labeled “super opaque”. You’ll get a brighter colored print. You’ll need a screen and squeegee to start. Also, some photo emulsion for screen printing. Add water to the sensitizer, then mix it with the emulsion. Mix thoroughly until it’s an even green color. Pour just a small amount onto the screen. Use the squeegee to spread it evenly on both sides of the screen. Try to get even and full coverage by alternating directions and sides. Dry the emulsion in front of a fan and IN THE DARK. After it’s dry, quickly lay your artwork, backwards, on the back of the screen. You can print your art on transparencies at most office supplies stores or copy centers. Tape the art in place, then lay on a piece of glass to hold it against the screen. Apply a very bright light for 30-45 minutes. You can also use sunlight, but the time may vary depending on cloud cover and placement. The areas covered by your art do not get exposed when you remove the transparency. Use a light spray and soft toothbrush to wash out the unexposed emulsion. Be careful not to use too much force when spraying it out or you will remove emulsion around your design as well. Use painters tape to mask any areas that you don’t want to print yet, or areas where the emulsion isn’t intact. Layout your shirt on smooth, flat surface and remove wrinkles. Place your design where you want it to be printed. Lay a thick bead of ink above the art, extended past both ends. Be sure to add extra ink above large areas to be printed. Even though I’m working alone here, you’ll have better luck to have someone hold your screen, then use two hands to evenly pull the squeegee fully across your screen. Remove the screen and wash out all of the ink before it dries. After the ink dries, run your shirt through a clothes dryer for 5 minutes to heat set the print. The screens can be reused by cleaning them with emulsion remover. Spread a small amount across both sides of the screen. Then use a hose to wash out the emulsion until the screen is clean. Dark inks will stain the material of the screen, but this will not affect future prints. Just make sure to remove all of the emulsion. Second channel: bit.ly/iltms-2
