I think you are referring to a cat TREE. I got a piece of tubing from a
carpet store and wound it tightly with 1/4 inch sisal rope (about 4 feet
high). To mount it, I got a piece of PVC pipe that fits inside the
tube. The pipe is set into a pipe flange which is then screwed onto a
3/4 inch plywood base. To provide stability, the base should be at
least 3 feet square.
Here is a picture:
