The particular perch, prey, scratcher, or cubby your cat chooses is up to you…..

Appropriate environmental outlets encourage normal, healthy cat behavior while reducing the stress (and resulting inappropriate behavior) of sharing their environment with humans and other pets.

A cat tree can help satisfy many basic feline needs in a single, space-saving unit.

Higher and Higher
Spurred by a need to watch over household goings-on, look for prey, and feel secure, your cat chooses the elevated lookout offered by the fireplace mantle, the top of the refrigerator, or countertops when given no other perching choices.

Carpeted, floor-to-ceiling cat trees provide a secure, durable pathway to the highest domain in your home while keeping your cat off surfaces where you display breakables or prepare food.

They also place your cat where much of the heat in your home ends up– near the ceiling– and cats love to be where it is warm. If you can locate it near a window, even better.

Unless arthritic, most cats have no problem maneuvering quickly up and down the platforms and in and out of the hideaways on a cat tree. They provide an ideal solution to a cat’s innate need for a lofty throne.

Breakaway toys

Space-saving and Versatile Playground
Designed with a very small footprint, a cat tree occupies less than a couple square feet of your floor space, yet gives many square feet of elevated perching space– ideal for smaller homes or for setting up multiple cat trees.

Easy assembly means you can re-locate your cat tree whenever you wish to change the scenery for your cat. And, cat trees can be connected to other pieces of our carpeted furniture with the use of our Carpeted Ramp. Sturdy woodbase ramps let you connect as many pieces as your space and budget allow, creating the ideal cat playground in your home.

Dream On
It is estimated that cats spend over 60% of their time each day sleeping or resting; therefore, lounging and sleeping spots are essential. In multiple-cat households, these spots also help minimize social stress and provide a respite from quarrels– presuming there is a special spot available for each cat.

The enclosed hideaway on a cat tree is the ideal napping spot away from the dog, other cats, or the children. Ours include fleece or carpeting inner lining to keep cats cozy and warm.

Your cat’s environment is important to her wellness and behavior. The next time you chase her away from one of your household possessions, take inventory of her alternatives. It may be time to offer something new.

Prey Play
Hunting prey is an essential feline behavior, consuming about 15% of a cat’s day. Modifying your environment with appropriate prey toys can help prevent your legs, hands, or other objects in your home from becoming the target of your cat’s hunting sessions.

Hang swat toys or dangling toys from doorknobs, chair legs, or even a cat tree. Our cat trees include one, snap-on swat toy that easily breaks away from the tree should your cat become entangled in the string. Watch amusingly as multiple cats vie for a turn at the swat toy on a cat tree.

Cat Scratch Fervor
Cat trees can be instrumental in redirecting inappropriate scratching. Scratching is a necessary cat behavior, but doesn’t have to be tolerated on your furniture. Most of our cat trees have at least one sisal post built in.

With durable 3/8″ thick braided jute, they stand up to intense scratching and last a long, long time. To train a cat to use the sisal, place her on her hind legs, and gently work her front paws in a pawing motion on the sisal. She’ll catch on quickly.

Show you cats love with a Cat Tree

We live in a horizontal world but cats aren’t limited to the horizontal side of life. Cats make use of horizontal and vertical aspects of the environment hence why the need of a cat tree.

In fact, they rely on vertical areas for safety, comfort and certainly for fun. Providing your cat with vertical options in his territory isn’t just a luxury, it’s a crucial part of feline life.

In a multicat home, vertical territory can make the difference between a happy household and a feline battleground. One of the easiest ways to increase vertical territory is with a cat tree.

When you have more than one cat in your home, the addition of cat tree increases the chances of living in harmony because cats of higher status can claim the highest perch.

If the relationship between a couple of cats in your home is very tense, the ability for the higher-ranking cat to move to the high perch on a tree can be enough to let the other cat know who is in charge here.

The ability to claim vertical territory may reduce the number of physical confrontations and tense stand-offs.

Help for Timid Cats

If there’s a timid cat living in your home, the addition of a cat tree can provide a safe place for him to stay out in the open while still feeling secure.

On an elevated perch, the cat tree has a visual advantage because he can see more of his environment and as a result, he’ll have more visual warning time of any advancing opponent.

The elevated location also provides security because the cat knows he won’t be ambushed from behind.

If you have a cat who tends to run under the bed and hide, place a cat tree in the room that has an A-frame bed on it so he has the benefit of being elevated as well as being hidden.

This may be enough to entice him to stay in the room near family or guests instead of running for cover in the bedroom.

Increased Territory

A cat tree is a great way to increase vertical territory because it provides the opportunity for more than one cat to share a close space while maintaining any sort of pecking order.

Cats who wouldn’t share close quarters on a windowsill or table, may be at ease enough to share a cat tree. The different levels of the perches allow cats to be close together but not right next to each other.

Initially, a cat tree may seem to be an extravagant purchase but a good quality one will last many, many years.

Additionally, a cat tree can serve more than one function for your cat as well.

In addition to being a great place to perch, the support posts can be used as scratching posts.

Depending on your cat’s scratching preferences, you can order cat trees with bare wood, sisal covered, or even bark covered.

Cat Tree Location

Once you’ve purchased the ideal cat tree, give careful consideration to where it should be placed. Typically, a great option is to put the cat tree by a window so your cat can watch the outdoor activity.

If you don’t like the look of the cat tree and plan to place it in some unused bedroom or in the basement, then it’ll just end up gathering dust.

The tree needs to be located in a spot that your cat will find appealing.

Another benefit of a tree is it can be refuge for a cat who shares his home with children or dogs. If you teach your children that when kitty is on his tree it means he wants to be left alone, it will go a long way in the trust-building process.

If your cat shares his home with a dog, train the pup that the cat tree is a dog-free zone.
