    A Guide To The Best Cat Towers

    Cat towers also known as cat trees, cat climbing towers, cat condos or cat stands definitely kills more than two birds with one stone. Firstly nearly all cat towers will come equipped with posts covered in paw friendly material, to make it a cat scratching post. Scratching is part of a cat’s natural behaviour as it helps them remove the dead outer layer of their claws.

    Secondly there are usually several platforms on different levels on a cat tower and as cats like to climb as they prefer to be above ground level and being high up also gives them a chance to watch over their environment.

    There are many other reasons and benefits why your cat may need a cat climbing tower which we’ll mention under the advantages section.

     

    How To Choose The Best Cat Tree For Your Beloved Feline

    Cat towers come in different shapes and sizes or shall we say levels and platforms, when buying the most suitable and best cat tower for your cat, you probably won’t be able to get away with just buying a cheap cat tower.

    Choosing a suitable one is more relevant in this case and there are several factors which you should take into account to ensure you choose something suitable.  They are as follows:

    Number of cats – If you own more cats then you would need a bigger and higher cat tower that has multiple platforms as this will enable cats to have their own territory and avoid cat to cat conflicts.

    The size of your cat – Certain cat towers are designed to support cats up to a certain weight, if your cat weighs more than the average cat then consider a cat tower which is bigger and sturdier so it can support the weight of your cat.

    Behaviour – Analysing a cat’s behaviour is more to see whether your cat needs a cat tower or not. The following are signs that your cat will probably be better off with a cat tower:

    • Mischievous activity such as battling at shoelaces or pulling at socks will usually indicate that the cat is bored.
    • Cats who claim people’s furniture as their own are territorial and you may find your cat hissing at you when you sit in your favourite chair if your cat has claimed ownership.
    • Scratching and climbing is quite destructive behaviour and a cat tower will better accommodate for both rather than your furniture.

     

    Advantages:

    • Some towers will have multiple platforms which will enable a number of cats to have their own space and allow them to be high up so they can watch over their environment.
    • Pretty much all cat towers will have at least two scratching posts which will not only remove the dead outer layer of their claws but it’ll also eliminate the need to buy a separate scratching post.
    • Dangling cat toys and dangling ropes seem to keep cats entertained, some towers will come equipped with these items.
    • Cats may claim furniture that doesn’t belong to them as their own but you don’t want them to be claiming your furniture as theirs so giving them a cat tower will quite rightly so allow them to claim it as their own.
    • Most towers will include a nice and cosy cat cave which is perfect for cats to hide, relax or sleep in.
    • Doesn’t require much floor space as cat towers are usually high rather than wide.
    • Prevents cats from scratching and climbing on household furniture.
    • Gives cats several activities options to prevent them from boredom.

     

    Disadvantages:

    • There are several different design options but many of the designs are similar to each other so unless you choose to custom build your cat tower, your options are fairly limited.
    • Although not much surface area is required, it’s still big enough to be labelled as a piece of furniture therefore you’ll still need to find space for it.
