Cat Climbing Trees

Is your kitty shredding draperies and furniture? A cat climbing tree is the answer!

Cats make wonderful pets and can be highly entertaining to watch. Their behaviors can also be a bit eccentric, such as the cat who has been calmly and deliberately cleaning himself for half an hour and then suddenly tears off down the hall and up the side of a door. He may then perch on the top of the door, peering down as though a little mousie might conveniently pass his way. Although odd, they can certainly make you laugh. However, when Kitty tears back down the hall and launches himself at your living room drapes, fiercely clinging as the drapes come down, the laughter is likely to stop! As you survey the ruins, you realize this can't continue, but what's the answer?

Cats love to climb, it's as natural and essential to their happiness as eating, drinking and sleeping! Cats, being cats, spend their days amusing themselves with whatever shenanigans they can manage. Climbing and sharpening their claws are favored activities. If you don't provide them with some of their very own furnishings, they will use yours.

Cat owners who are unfamiliar with these basic facts may have seen a cat climbing tree at the pet shop and thought this invention to be a plaything for the rich, dilettante cat. Not so! Once Kitty's torn down your draperies, you'd better get thee to the pet shop and invest in a cat climbing tree. This kitty toy will save the rest of your furnishings.

There are several styles and sizes from which you might choose. If you have just one feline friend, a smaller model will probably do the job. Consider also the size of the spot you have in mind for Kitty's new cat climbing tree. If you have more than one cat, you're better off going for a larger size.

Available features vary from model to model. You know how rambunctious or lazy your cat is, so suit the features to your cat's personality. All cat climbing trees consist of a central pole, much like the trunk of a tree. The pole is covered with a sort of indoor-outdoor type of carpeting, with a section usually wrapped in rope, making for an attractive scratching and claw sharpening tool. Most also sport a perch or two, situated like branches on a tree.

The more active cat may enjoy a cat climbing tree which offers more to do. Some come with cat toys hanging from the perch, so Kitty can bat this prey around for hours. You can make your own additions to perches as well. A sturdy length of nylon, attached to a cloth bag of catnip is always enticing.

If your kitty enjoys napping in closets, consider the cat climbing tree with an enclosed cubby where he can retreat when he's all worn out.

Now you know. Cat climbing trees are not luxuries!
