I'm looking at making something like this, but instead of the small trays, extending the shelf outside of the frame a bit, and using curved pieces.

They wouldn't have to be very big. The idea is to put four of them next to each other to create intervals, as seen here:




So that the cat could travel the top of the shelves laterally, using each one as a stair. By including the curve outside of the bars, I hope to created extra space, perhaps to extend the step closer, perhaps to have a spot to set a plant or a big mug, depending on where along the curve the cat uses to step, or how the curve is cut, perhaps slimmed at the ends. Mini Shelves via a stanchion or an "invisible shelf" option below, would be used for actually storing/organizing stuff.

I don't happen to like the look of railings into my walls, and I don't much like the plastic furniture also displayed in the second image, but I can certainly see how the furniture could have pads added for kitty comfort and and would otherwise be easy to wipe free of kitty's fur, and how railings might be a bit more stable.
