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.
So What Should You Buy? The decision as to what type of furniture to buy for Tabby and Fritz should be determined by a combination of factors: - Do you want a freestanding or floor-to-ceiling model? This is really more of a personal choice issue than anything else. If you have very active or very large cats, a floor to ceiling model will probably offer more stability. If you have a multi-cat household, special attention should be paid to the weight rating of the furniture. It's also usually possible to secure a free-standing model to a wall with common brackets and hardware available at any home center, in cases where rambunctious kitties cause it to rock or tip.
Sisal cat tree for happy climbers - Sisal rope is made from hard natural fiber which makes it ideal for the rigours of a cat’s claws. A sisal cat tree is a great way to keep your cat entertained with a little climbing, hanging, scratching, and surveying of its interior territory. Coffee and chat over a cat - When your friends visit for an afternoon coffee, they’ll have the good fortune of watching your kitty snoozing in her cat hammock beneath your coffee table. Whether your cat will be appreciative of the audience is another matter entirely.
However, when thick (at least 14") cardboard is made into a tube, and stood up vertically, it can hold an incredible amount of weight. The addition of a layer of sisal rope wrapped around it adds even more strength. One big advantage of cardboard posts over wooden ones is the weight. Shipping rates are based on weight, and shipping costs for a piece of cat furniture made with cardboard posts will be considerably less than a comparable model with wooden posts.
