Cat Furniture Coverings : In the past, most cat furniture was covered with carpet. This was a good choice, because it looks good, and it offers a material that cats obviously like to scratch. Some of the cat furniture manufactured today, especially hand-made models, still use carpet. Most carpeting today contains fabric loops. Unfortunately, after thousands of scratches, cat claws can cut through these loops, resulting in unsightly and messy shredding. You've probably seen this yourself.
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.
Having a pet can bring people joy because of the companionship and the love pets give their owners. However, taking care of a pet is a big responsibility because certain pets have very specific needs that pet owners should cater to. Some of these needs may include specialized cages, special diet or grooming. These are true for most domesticated animals such as cats and dogs.
As a result, most cat furniture that offers faux fur also utilizes sisal rope as a covering. Generally, the vertical posts are wrapped with sisal rope, and the platforms and enclosures are covered with the acrylic fur. Sisal rope is made from the Agave Sisalana plant, which is native to the Yucatan area of Mexico. Cats seem naturally drawn to this material, and unlike the acrylic fur, sisal rope offers the resistance that cats need to tune their claws and stretch their muscles. Some cat furniture manufacturers that use carpet as a covering also offer sisal-wrapped posts, and in most (but not all) cases cats will scratch on the sisal instead of the carpet.
