Why Buy Cat Furniture

The term “Cat Furniture” refers to many different things that you might buy for a cat such as scratching posts and litter tray enclosures, up large cat trees and cat condos.

Here I consider the benefits of the larger items that you might purchase and the things you need to bear in mind if you decide to go ahead.

The first thing to consider is the terminology. The larger items of furniture are usually referred to as Cat Tree, Cat Condo and Cat Tower and you might wonder what is the difference. This is in fact an ill defined area. In theory cat trees and cat towers are more open. They incorporate 1 or more upright posts that support a series of platforms or small boxes effectively looking like a tree with limbs. There may be various toys and items like a swing or hammock included. The lower part usually features a scratching post. A condo, on the other hand, is more enclosed with various levels offering places to hide and sleep as well as play.

In practice most items are a mixture of these types and the terms are more or less interchangeable.

So what are the benefits of this sort of cat furniture:

  • Height – Cats love high places so a cat tree/condo gives them the opportunity to climb without causing damage elsewhere.
  • Hierarchy – If you have multiple cats there is always a hierarchy. The vertical space of a cat tree/condo provides the opportunity to display this and can mean that cats that were previously squabbling can live together happily.
  • Private Place – Cats will appreciate a place where they can hid away and sleep without being disturbed, especially if there are young children about.
  • Scratching Post – Many standalone scratching posts are too short. A cat really needs to stretch out its full length when scratching and many cat trees allow this.
  • Alternative to your furniture – Giving your cats somewhere to climb, play and generally exercise will help avoid them doing this elsewhere in the house. 

It is not a good plan to cut costs when purchasing a cat tree/condo, you should get the highest quality you can. Your cats will not be gentle with it and you want it to last many years. Bear in mind that cheaper models will usually require assembling and some are reported to be rather time consuming. Ready assembled models tend to cost more but should be more sturdy. However deliver of such a large item might be a factor. 

In any case the one thing you must ensure is that your cat tree/condo is safe, both for your cat and everybody else. It must not be possible for a cat (or even several cats) to knock it over. If this were to happen, or even if it is just a bit unstable, your cat will likely become wary of it and avoid it in future.

It should be easy to get your cat to adopt a cat tree/condo and the result should be an easier life for both of you.

Does Your Cat Climbs Your Curtains ? What Can You Do About It ?

Anyone who keeps cats will find out sooner or later that cats just love to climb. But why do cats love to climb and more importantly what should you do if you have an indoors cat who climbs?

Of course it’s very difficult to know unless you can get into the mind of a cat however it’s most likely that climbing is purely instinctual. There is no doubt that climbing a tree is a wonderful way for a cat to get away from a predator, and I have seen many instances of cats smirking at dogs below from the safety of a branch.

And sleeping in a tree is much safer than sleeping on the ground.

And just like dogs a cat can also be a predator, and are very good hunters at night, catching many small native nocturnal animals which populate our trees. And even during the day a cat will go up a tree very fast to try and catch a bird, though is rarely successful.

For this reason experts recommend that cats be kept indoors at night, and preferably 24 hours a day.

So if you do the right thing and keep your cat indoors 24 hours a day can you expect him to forget about his instinct to climb? No you can’t. If he has nothing to climb then he will find something. Most commonly the back of your couch or your favourite curtains. It wouldn’t be the first time that a homeowner has come home from work to find their favourite curtains together with the curtain rail in a heap on the floor after the cat has tried to climb the curtains.

So if you have an indoors cat you have a little dilemma to solve. If you can’t dissuade him from climbing what do you do? Luckily the answer is very simple. You buy him a piece of dedicated cat climbing furniture which gives him a place to climb away to his heart’s content, where he can find all sorts of nooks and crannies to investigate, where he can sleep in the branches and all of it is done without any damage to your furniture.

Cat furniture such as this is called a cat tree, though sometimes they can be also called a cat tower or gym. It’s simply a piece of dedicated furniture which is designed for cats, somewhere where they love to climb, scratch and play and where it makes no difference how much damage he does.

So if you’re the proud owner of an indoors cat then forget about your cat learning to live without climbing. Just cater to his instinct to climb by buying him a fine cat tree and he can have all the fun he wants and you can relax knowing that he won’t be ripping up your curtains.
