Fleet farm cat tree
A "cat tree" is a vertical structure that resembles a tree with cat figurines attached to it. Cat trees can be used for a variety of purposes, including decorative, psychological, or therapeutic benefits for humans and cats.
Cats can be used to relieve stress, while human owners benefit from cat trees in different ways:
Relaxation and stress relief
A healthy indoor environment
A safe and clean place for kitty to hide when they are afraid
Design and use
In general, cats can climb or jump and will generally only sit on a vertical surface, preferring a high-positioned horizontal surface as opposed to ground level. Cat trees are intended to fit a cat's needs and should match their shape. Unlike other furniture intended to entertain cats, cat trees do not offer any play value for cats. Rather, they are often viewed as a place to sleep, or a cat tower or scratching post to prevent them from scratching furniture. Many cat trees resemble high branches or trees. They are not meant to be places for cats to perch or climb.
Design and features
Cat trees vary greatly in design and in features. They can be made from anything from wire, wood, plastic, stone, concrete, and fabric. Generally, they are sized to fit a particular cat.
Some cat trees are freestanding while others are mounted on a wall. Many people prefer the latter because they cannot be easily pulled off of the wall or knocked off.
There are many features of cat trees that vary depending on the type of cat tree. Some of the main features include:
The design of the tree itself
The height of the tree
Climbing and scratching bars
Optional accessories such as toys or ramps
Height of furniture
Design and features of cat trees
There are three main types of cat trees: freestanding, wall-mounted, and floor-mounted. The height and type of furniture is also determined by the cat's weight and size. For example, taller cat trees may be appropriate for larger cats.
Freestanding cat trees are designed to be mounted on a shelf. Most are made with heavy-duty materials that will not tip over. The height and design of the tree depends on the size of the cat. For example, a cat tree may be around 15" in height and the base of the tree may be designed to accommodate cat's paws. Most models do not allow for cats to climb.
Wall-mounted cat trees are designed to be attached to the wall using a wall mount. They are usually smaller in size than freestanding cat trees. They can be made from different types of materials. Some may be designed to accommodate a cat's climbing. Some cat trees allow the cat to climb up and down. However, cats do not normally play on cat trees.
Floor-mounted cat trees are designed to be mounted on the floor. They are made in a variety of sizes, some as small as 7" and as large as 30". The height is generally at least 8" high, and generally can accommodate a cat's weight. Most do not allow the cat to climb.
Cat trees are usually made of either metal or wood, and they are usually designed to be moved from place to place.
