When we got our first cats we hit upon the idea of providing them with their own climbing area. I had ideas of making climbing areas and perches and runs all over the place. Of course in practice it was not so easy, my woodworking skills were not up to much and this was in the days before cat trees really became popular. I was really trying to give our cats a chance to sit somewhere high up. They simply love to sit and look down across their mini-Kingdom. Nowadays there are many different options for buying cat trees and I would recommend that you check them all out before making a decision.
I was really trying to give our cats a chance to sit somewhere high up. They simply love to sit and look down across their mini-Kingdom. Many cat trees can be adjusted to provide exactly the right height and if they had been around back then I would almost certainly have bought one. It is tall, can be used effectively in rooms up to 9 foot tall, although that is with an extension as the normal use is for rooms up to 8 foot.
There are many different cat trees available for sale at great prices on Amazon and are definitely worth checking out, especially if you are unsure if you cat will like climbing a cat tree and don’t want to waste nearly $100 finding out.
Good Points about Cat Trees
As I said, cats love to sit somewhere high up and this cat tree provides them with a great place to do exactly that. We have seen a number of great options especially cheaply at Amazon.
Thing to Remember About Cat Trees
Remember, if you are paying around $40 for a cat tree it is not going to last forever, and this cat tree is no exception. Although it is suitable for most cats, it’s height does make it potentially feel quite unstable if you are concerned about this then it would be well worth securing it to a wall with a simple bracket.
Overall you can get some fantastic options for cat trees. Many have multiple levels and incorporate cubby holes and perches and play areas. You should be able to get one at any price point as the manufacturers have priced at the entry level for cat trees.
Following our experience with our cat we would recommend a cat tree. They may well be just what your cat is looking for.
