This section will discuss a bit on kitty condos. A trip to the pet store will give you many ideas about the types, sizes, and styles of cat condos or perches available. Some condos are designed like playgrounds, with perches, ledges, hideaways, and toys to keep your cat entertained. Depending on your budget, you can buy carpeted condos that double as hideaways and scratching posts or towers with several levels that allow your cat to sit up high and survey his domain. Instead of relying on metal ID tags, some owners use microchips to identify their pets.
Cats are climbers by nature; height allows them to both avoid or escape larger predators, and give them a better and bigger view of the happenings in their area. Climbing is also good exercise and helps keep their claws in good shape. Cat claws grow continuously, both in length and layers from the center out. It is not unusual to find what looks like a toenail near an area that a cat scratches. It is the shed outer layer of the claw and part of the reason cats are so industrious about scratching.
Cats also use scratching to communicate and as a way to mark territory. Unfortunately for cat owners, carpets, chairs and couches are perfect for scratching - so how can people have cats in the house yet still protect their furniture? Declawing will prevent a kitty from scratching furniture, but this is an extremely cruel practice. Some people mistakenly believe that claws serve no more purpose than a person's fingernails. In reality, because a cat's claws are an integral part of their paw, removing them is similar to cutting off a person's fingers at the first knuckle!
Features to consider - Cat trees can be as tall as eight feet so you'll want to measure you ceiling before buying or ordering. Some have tops that extend to a custom size and secure to your ceiling for stability. If this is the kind you prefer, look for one that attaches to ceiling with pressure. It will be much easier to install and will not require hardware or fasteners that damage the ceiling.
