A properly assembled and installed floor-to-ceiling model cannot tip over. Usually, the tension against the ceiling is accomplished either through use of a spring-tension rod or a screw-based mechanism. This doesn't mean that the cat tree is screwed into the ceiling. Rather, the topmost post has a threaded bolt, usually topped with a soft protective cap that screws up against the ceiling. Generally, the screw-type cat trees are more stable, especially if you have active cats, and are also less likely to damage the ceiling surface.
Cat furniture towers are a great place for cats to play which will discourage them from jumping on your furniture when they are bored or playful. The average tower is a tall structure that is perfect for your cat to jump and climb on. They often provide little cubby holes that your cat can curl up and sleep in when they are tired out from all of their playing. Best of all they are covered in material that is perfect for scratching so your cats will spend their time sharpening their claws on the new tower rather than clawing your furniture to shreds.
Give Her an Outlet for Instinctual Activities Cat Furniture is made to address the instinctual needs of cats and helps relieve the stress your cat can develop when sharing her environment with humans and other pets. Take, for instance, the need cats have to climb and seek different heights. Cat trees address this need with a design that incorporates maximum vertical range; some cat trees are constructed for floor-to-ceiling installation. Cats can paw at toys on ground level, or go to ceiling level to examine their indoor surrounding or to get a better look out a window.
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.
