Cat Trees – Kitties Love Them
Kitties love their toys, and they can give your furniture a break from scratch marks and fur. Most have some sort of scratching post built in and your cat can also climb around and play on it. Sometimes they hide in their “tree fort” and watch people stroll by, allowing them to mimic their natural state as a predator.
Cat trees often come as part of a cat tree. Sometimes if you have 2 or more cats they can snuggle together or take turns lying on top. Some are very elaborate some simple; they come in various styles and colors and range from simple cylinders to intricate and interwoven tubes.
Felines love a feeling of security, which the trees can provide; comfortable and private hiding places away from the bustle of their outside world. They can also be an activity center for your kitty’s entertainment and give the indoor cat exercise while you are away. When watching your cat or cats go crazy playing on the cat tree it can be quite entertaining for the owners as well.
