This is a great question. Without having had a chance to do any research, I just wanted to let you know that technically she’ll be exerting much more force than 10 lbs when she’s landing on or jumping off the shelves. Definitely take that into consideration and find a solution that can withstand much more force than just her weight.

@peachacid:  If they’re not prohibitively expensive why not just get a couple sets of thebottom shelves?  If you did them parallel she could use the top as stairs and use the bottom one as a shelf?

Also, I don’t know if that one room has any windows, but last time I was at the humane society, they had a kitty room full of these contraptions that stick onto windows. They look like hammocks stretched across a plastic square frame big enough for the cat to sleep in. The frame attached to the window with 2 suckers at 2 corners, and the other 2 outer corners had wires that made a triangle with the frame and the window and attached with suckers about 2 feet above the frame. Not as pretty or useful as shelving, but the cats fricken loved them and climbed all over them.
