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.

Floor-to-Ceiling or Freestanding? Cat furniture models will be either freestanding or floor-to-ceiling (commonly referred to as cat trees). Freestanding cat furniture is usually wide and bottom-heavy, to prevent it from tipping over when cats are at the top, or are very active. Floor-to-ceiling models use tension against the ceiling to provide their stability, and so do not require as wide a footprint as freestanding models.
Most cat furniture is assembled with posts made of carpet or sisal. These posts are no accident in design. They provide structural integrity while inviting instinctual scratching, which trims claws and leaves behind cat scent to establish territory. The need to establish territory is especially important in multiple-cat homes, and may even help prevent urine marking as a method of establishing territory. Encourage Challenges Though indoor cats live longer, healthier lives than outdoor cats, they face a health risk rare to most outdoor cats - a sedentary lifestyle.
