I've spotted some pretty sleek cat trees for climbers, and here's another from Square Cat Habitat. Named for a famous tree type with trunks big enough for even you to fit in, the five-foot Baobab Climbing Tree comes in 100 percent renewable bamboo ($500) or laminate-covered, recycled wood fiber ($285). Even the carpet can be customized for picky kitties – there's 10 swatches to fit any furry home.
Living in a small apartment can be a tricky task with all the accessories, toys, and overall "stuff" your pet requires. So when you have a small space, even a crate or cat tree can be a strain on your square footage. Thankfully, Square Cat Habitat has produced this totally functional cat perch that attaches right to your wall and can support up to 40 pounds. 40 pounds? That's a healthy kitty!
The Buddha Cat Habitat will set you back $100 but, made from eco-friendly bamboo, it's a clear-conscience and space saving alternative to the DIY Ikea Cat Tree I showed you awhile back. Plus the Buddha comes with your choice of non-slip insert that pulls double duty: match your already coordinated color scheme, and prevents Sassy from losing her grip!
As I was catching up on my cat news this weekend, I paused to meet the new HiCat cat tree on ModernCat. I instantly fell head over heels and began channeling Carrie Bradshaw when she finds the perfect pair of shoes! Can it get any better than a cat tree that also doubles as an architectural element in your home? Nope, sure doesn't.
The HiCat comes as a single, tree like pillar with safe interior cubby holes for your cat to perch in, which is much safer than climbing a real tree and dangling out on the branches! A durable outside ensures your kitty won't destroy it on first glance. The only downside? It's not yet available here in the US. But stay tuned, it should be here soon!
Tack on another addition to the cat tree files, as we bring you The Climber. First spied on Modern Cat, this super classy climbing extravaganza is so out of the way, it's practically out the door! The unique design allows you to attach to any door so your kitty can climb and scratch to her heart's content. Since it's made of durable sisal, your cat's preferred scratching post will be this, and not your new couch. What's more, the brand spankin' new designer, Cat Livin, lets you customize your order so it will match your already stylish decor! Free shipping on orders over $20 only adds to the appeal. Now if only I had a cat . . .
I admit it, I love Ikea! Their inexpensive items are stylish, functional, and apparently can be re-purposed for many different uses. Take, for example, this cat tree found on Ikea Hacker. Its parts come from the Stolmen line of closet organizers and make a sturdy and attractive perch for kitty. These pieces – which can be bought separately – could easily be stained or painted to match any interior and, thankfully, won't take up too much space. Just add carpet and you are ready to go! Have you re-purposed furniture to treat your pet to a new dwelling? If so, tell us below!
