When it comes to your cat, we know that you will do anything to keep it happy, healthy and in the safest environment possible. We know that because we are cat owners and lovers, just like you. We understand a thing or two about what it feels like to make sure that you are giving your cat the best care and attention it needs to get through the day.

One of the best pieces of advice that was shared with us many years ago was how cats need to be stimulated by their environment. Environmental enrichment as it is known is a way to ensure that your cat is mentally and physically trained on a daily basis to avoid the development of behaviour issues which can have long lasting effects.

There are plenty of ways to enrich your cat’s environment, but we have one solution that we know your cats love and think you’ll love just as much; because a happy cat is a happy cat owner.

Our cat climbers are a great solution for your cat and your home for many different reasons and we’d like to take the next few paragraphs to explain why.

Your cat loves vertical space

Cats love their vertical space. That sounds strange but there are many reasons for this. Firstly, in multi cat homes, there is an evolutionary tale of how cats use different elevations to establish themselves as leader of the pack, it’s a natural process that most felines will go through especially in the company of others.

Think about the amount of times you will have found your cat on your bookshelves or windowsills there are two main reasons for this. Firstly, protection. Cats, especially socially shy ones, want to feel that they are protected at all times, especially when they may be dozing off. Being higher up will allow for them feel more protected.

The second reason why cats love vertical space so much is, heat. You guessed it, heat rises and cats like the warmth and respond to warmer conditions better than many humans.

Our cat climber ensures that you can develop the height that is right for your feline friend and if there is more than one cat in your home, it’s a fun and multi-storey vertical playing spot for them.

From claws to scratching your cat needs practice

Have you ever wondered why your cat likes to get the claws out when things get a little more, boisterous? Well, it’s nature and it’s not a bad thing at all; the more time dedicated to using their claws and the dexterity required to catching what they think is prey, the better it can be for them according to many independent studies.

One of the tell tale signs that your cat may be suffering from a mental well being condition is when they scratch furniture or worse humans with no prior warnings. Keeping your cat mentally stimulated is going to be key to ensuring that you or your furniture doesn’t receive such treatment.

Our cat climbers have built-in scratching posts that will allow your cat to stretch and scratch helping them stave off any boredom that is associated with their mental well-being and conditions that bring out scratching furniture or humans.

Final Thoughts

Cat climbers have a wide range of uses and as we’ve hopefully shown you, it will help in the development of your cat’s overall well being.

From jumping and using different platforms helping them physically, it can prove to be a place of comfort and support for your feline friend making them feel happier and healthier in your home.

How much time do you spend at home thinking “that would be a good idea for our cat” after seeing another amazing home renovation on TV? Well, you’re not the only ones. Luckily we’ve been searching the internet so you don’t have to. These are just some of the things we have discovered.

1) A library fit for a cat
We all love books, and admittedly looking really clever by having a few too many on our shelves. Well, have no fear. This solution means that your cats can exercise and rest whilst you get to pick from your favourite writers.

2) Re-inventing the wheel

OK, we know that cats need exercise and that’s fine if you have an adventurous outdoorsy cat. But for the more reserved feline companion, exercise is usually the last thing on their mind. This exercise wheel is both a great idea, and style wise you have to say, pretty awesome!

3) A cat transit system
You may have a large or small residence, either way cats like roaming from one room to another. In that case, why not make it a little more challenging and fun at the same time. We thought this design was amazing, just don’t put any vases on the beams…

4) A Home in A Home
We love how a unit can be used for a cat only area and yet still be utilised by us humans for our interior decor and design. Now, imagine a cleo duffle bed inside that unit… perfect!

5) The All in One cat bathroom

Don’t just think it’s humans who are private when it comes to personal matters, cats can be as well. This design means that your cat is fully catered for the moment, and you the cat owner have plenty of surface space to work with.
