If you would like to go a step further, you can buy your cat his own cat house or cat condo. Some of these have two to three "stories" and are even equipped with cat beds. Apart from cat trees, there are also scratching posts that are available in the market. These posts also protect your home furniture from your cat's claws.
Cat furniture is a commodity that is known by many names. The most common include Cat Trees, Cat Condos, Kitty Condos, Cat Towers, Cat Climbers, Cat Scratchers and Cat Gyms. There are dozens more, but whatever term you use to describe cat furniture, the purpose is the same - to enable your cats to follow their instinctual desire to scratch without damaging your furniture, carpet, or other belongings, and also to give them a place of their own where they can exercise, play, and lounge.
Why Do Cats Scratch? In order to be completely informed when buying cat furniture, it's helpful to understand why it is that cats scratch in the first place. The primary reason for cats scratching furniture, carpets, woodwork, or other objects is to mark their territory for other cats (this is instinctual, so they will do this even if they are the only cat in the house). Additionally, the scratching helps remove the dead cells from the claw sheaths, and stretches their muscles and ligaments.
Give Her an Outlet for Instinctual Activities Cat Furniture is made to address the instinctual needs of cats and helps relieve the stress your cat can develop when sharing her environment with humans and other pets. Take, for instance, the need cats have to climb and seek different heights. Cat trees address this need with a design that incorporates maximum vertical range; some cat trees are constructed for floor-to-ceiling installation. Cats can paw at toys on ground level, or go to ceiling level to examine their indoor surrounding or to get a better look out a window.
