When cats aren't given opportunities to hunt, explore, and exercise, they risk not only excessive weight gain, but also emotional problems linked to boredom, inactivity, and lack of challenge. Our cat furniture is made to encourage activity and exercise. Many of our carpeted pieces are equipped with a breakaway toy to encourage prey-like behaviors like pouncing and swatting. Plus, multiple levels ensure cats expend energy moving from level to level and crawling in and out of cubbies. And, the cubbies or corners can also provide a hunting challenge when you hide a favorite treat or toy inside for your cat to find.
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.
Many cat owners see their cat furniture as an extra - nice to have, but not really essential. Consider for a moment your cat's instinctual behavior, and then take a look around your home. Does she have a place to climb and explore different heights? Does she have a safe place to scratch and establish territory? Does she have opportunities to hunt? If your furnishings and furniture are not acceptable places for her to display these behaviors, then cat furniture is an acceptable alternative - and a necessity to your cat's well-being.
