One of Sparkle’s favorite things to do was shop around for high-end cat trees and post her findings! As you know from my many pet shop excursions, I like shopping too, so I am going to carry on this fun tradition. But you know what? You don’t always have to break the budget to get something cool.
Take my own castle here! It’s called My Kitty Darling Castle, and you can usually get it on Amazon for under $100! It’s perfect for small cats like me (I’m 6 lbs. and probably won’t get much bigger than 7). I use mine all the time. I’m often found napping in the bottom condo. You can also find other cool, creative products by the same company here.
If you have a slightly bigger budget, then maybe your kitty would like the Oak Cat Tree by Kitty Mansions! It’s not really made of oak, and honestly, it doesn’t really look like an oak tree either, but it’s got lots of platforms, brown sisal rope for good scratching, and fake leaves so you can pretend you are in a real tree!
If you want something that does not look so much like cat furniture, then you probably would like this classic, the Lotus Cat Tree! It’s modern and graceful and goes with the smooth lines of today’s sleek, minimalist interior design.
Here’s another sleek and unique design: the Curvynest Cat Tree! Even though it has a delightful spring when a kitty leaps on it, it’s built in a way that makes it extra sturdy. Plus it has awesome, cat-friendly curves, and fiber weaving for a satisfying scratching experience. It also comes in a larger size for bigger cat families.
The next several cat trees are really for the cat who has absolutely everything, so don’t faint when you click through and see the prices!
The Yin-Yang Cat Perch is a perfect window height so your kitty can catch some Bird TV when she is not meditating! The red and black are classic colors, but you can actually order carpet in a variety of hues to match your home, or your cat’s preference. You can also add sisal to the posts for a little extra cost. If you want to know what the characters mean, here’s the translation: “Sleepy kitty, soft bed.” Cool, huh?
Judging from my Facebook page, I have a lot of readers who are sci-fi fans, and the Roswell Cradle Cat Tree is for you! It’s 4′ tall, and has lots of places for your cat to nap, hang out and commune with aliens from a distant galaxy! Because your tree will be custom made, you don’t have to stick with alien green, and you can also have a sisal pole custom dyed to match the shade of carpet you choose. Since it is custom made, it takes 6 to 8 weeks to get to you. Don’t worry, I’m sure your cat will gladly except a holiday IOU!
Have you ever seen the film Little Shop of Horrors (the classic 1960 original, not the remakes)? This one made me kind of think of that, but don’t worry, the Cozy Orchid Cat Tree is perfectly safe for kitties and humans! It is 6′ tall and the many perches look like leaves, leading up to the bed in the center of the flower. Maybe your cat can pretend to be the voice of Audrey Jr. in Little Shop of Horrors and meow “Feed me!” Like the Roswell Cradle Cat Tree, this is a custom-made item that will take 6 to 8 weeks to land on your doorstep.
Calling this a cat tree is too modest. In fact, the Kitty Mansions humans call this impressive structure Buckingham Palace! At nearly 9′ high, 80″ wide and 44″ deep, it’s fit for a royal feline family. I just want to say, if I had this amazing array of pathways, cubbyholes, scratching surfaces and towers, I might not want to ever leave the house again! If your human reads the Skymall catalog like it is Miles Kimball and never shops anywhere less expensive than Neiman Marcus, then maybe Santa Kitty will have this on his list for you!
