Cat trees or cat climbers  have a very important role to play in a cat’s life. They encourage many major functions, which are invaluable to a cats well-being. The climbing poles double up as scratching posts, allowing the cat not only to take care of their claws and exercise the surrounding muscles, but also to leave their scent on which for a cat is very important.

The climbing enables a cat to get exercise and is the closest thing to climbing a tree (a natural everyday action for an outdoor cat) and enables the cat to feel secure in a high place away from people or dogs, looking down on its territory. The cat tree is a piece of furniture that belongs to cats only and I would encourage any cat carer to consider finding a space to put one.

Look for climbers that match your cat size and also remember that they need to be sturdy so that your cat can feel secure when jumping on the climber.

I love this company for climbers – The Cat Tree King.

Hope you enjoy searching for a good tree!
