Every household needs a good cat tree. Not only do they keep your cat occupied and let them climb and explore, but they also save your furniture. Here, we highlight some of the best cat trees that we have found.
As you are probably aware, cats love to climb and they need to keep active for health reasons. A purposely built cat tree allows your cat the fun of climbing and often adds extra sleeping areas. This may save your curtains from being climbed up, or your furniture from being scratched.
Cat trees come in many different sizes, from small (about 40 inches high), through medium (about 5 foot) and large (over 5 foot).
