Cats are a great pet to have especially if you have a hectic work schedule. They are very independent and can stay occupied indoors for long stretches at a time. Plus they use litter boxes which can stay indoors meaning you never have to worry about an accident after missing a walk. The one downside to owning a cat that all cat owners will mention is their claws.
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.
If you would like to go a step further, you can buy your cat his own cat house or cat condo. Some of these have two to three "stories" and are even equipped with cat beds. Apart from cat trees, there are also scratching posts that are available in the market. These posts also protect your home furniture from your cat's claws.
Structural Materials : Obviously the strength of the cat furniture is provided by the underlying structural materials. Vertical posts are usually wood 2 x 4's or heavy cardboard tubes, while horizontal surfaces are either plywood or pressboard. Manufacturers sometimes use cardboard for enclosure walls that do not bear any weight load. It is a common misconception that wooden posts offer more structural integrity than cardboard tubes. In actuality, this is not necessarily true. Of course everybody knows that wood is stronger than cardboard when flat.
