How to pick the perfect cat tree for your kitties?

Cats instinctively gravitate to high perches “to see more, because they predators,”. However, different cats have different preferences. Some may prefer higher grounds, while some may enjoy a more grounded play field. Here are a few types of cat tree currently available in the market that you can choose from.

How active is your cat?

If your cat is one of the wiser elders, choosing a steadier and lower cat tree may be safer for them to get their daily activities in. With stair-like designs and fences surrounding the tree, it will be better for less active cats with decreased mobility. If you are still worried about your babies accidentally falling off from the tree, you can always put a thick cushion or blanket below to prevent unwanted injuries. With more supporting poles, the tree will be steadier and will not wobble around when cats are jumping around the platforms.

If your cats are the more active explorers, you can consider the floor-to-ceiling type. This model of the cat trees provides your little friend with more private space, and more platforms to jump around. However, you should be more careful with installing the tree and daily maintenances as this type of tree wobbles more and can cause serious injuries if the tree falls.

Is your cat a scratcher?

Most cats really enjoy scratchers, but it’s not a “one size fits all” situation! Most of the scratching poles are made with jute ropes as they help the cats climb the most. Some other are made with card boards and linen. Make sure to get your kitten at least some sort of scratcher to prevent them from scratching your beloved furniture.

Think Repair

Cat trees should be easy to assemble and clean. Your cat friends will spend a lot of their time on the tree and thus we should regularly clean the tree to make sure that they can have a clean and safe environment to hang out at.
