Most cat furniture is assembled with posts made of carpet or sisal. These posts are no accident in design. They provide structural integrity while inviting instinctual scratching, which trims claws and leaves behind cat scent to establish territory. The need to establish territory is especially important in multiple-cat homes, and may even help prevent urine marking as a method of establishing territory. Encourage Challenges Though indoor cats live longer, healthier lives than outdoor cats, they face a health risk rare to most outdoor cats - a sedentary lifestyle.
Some Common Cat Furniture, One of the most common and essential cat furniture that cat owners should have is litter boxes which help manage the litter of their pets. Another important piece of furniture designed for cats are cat trees. They provide cats with scratching posts so that they will not scratch your furniture at home. Cat trees also provide your cat with a playground which can make his stay in your home more fun while you are away at work.
Floor-to-Ceiling or Freestanding? Cat furniture models will be either freestanding or floor-to-ceiling (commonly referred to as cat trees). Freestanding cat furniture is usually wide and bottom-heavy, to prevent it from tipping over when cats are at the top, or are very active. Floor-to-ceiling models use tension against the ceiling to provide their stability, and so do not require as wide a footprint as freestanding models.
Cat towers come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes so you do not have to worry about buying something that is too big or too small. There are cat furniture towers that are perfect for one cat and some that are designed with two or more in mind. They also come in a wide variety of colors and materials so you do not have to worry about settling for something that will clash horribly with your own furniture. These days' cat furniture towers are designed with the cat owners wishes in mind in addition to the cats. Many pet supply retailers now offer cat furniture towers that boast attractive designs that all cat owners would be proud to display out in the open.
