As you consider the possibilities for providing a climbing, playing and lounging space for your cat, consider enhancing their environment with one or more pieces of cat furniture. Here are some of the many benefits that cat furniture can provide:
Choose cat furniture with sisal rope posts to provide your cat the opportunity to scratch somewhere other than *your* furniture! Cats need to scratch to remove dead outer layers from their claws, and also to instinctively "mark" their territory.
Most cats enjoy observing their world from high vantage points. This is in large part due to their instinct to protect themselves, and an elevated position for sleeping and playing allows them to spot potential dangers around them. This harkens back to their ancestry as hunters, retreating from larger predators. Supporting this instinct by providing vertical perching spots on cat trees and kitty gyms and towers provides cats a sense of security and safety.
Especially in multi-cat homes, vantage points on cat trees allow cats to increase their territory, and helps them to establish social hierarchy by occupying space at different levels. Providing climbing spaces and perching spots helps reduce cat-to-cat conflicts and provides a sense of security for more timid cats.
Providing a floor-based cat furniture or a wall-based cat shelf system encourages your cat to engage in physical activity, climbing and play, helping them to stay mentally enriched and healthy. In addition to being great entertainment for your cat, you will also be entertained by watching your cat climb and play!
