About Cats and Kittens: Most Popular Cat Trees, Condos, and Houses - A Review

Updated on August 10, 2014

Cat and Kitten Furniture

As a servant to a cat myself, I have come to know that her most popular piece of cat furniture is her Cat Condo, Tree or House. They have various names. Cats and kittens both truly enjoy the luxury of having their own space without any doubts.

Most cat furniture of this nature has many levels (to allow those climbing trips full of adventure), to various "holes" that the cat or kitten can crawl into and take a nap. These are commonly referred to as bedrooms. Some have dangling toys that will entertain your cat or kitten when he or she does not want to allow you to entertain her.

Overall, what is the most popular thing that one would expect in such cat furniture? Well, cats enjoy scratching! So you would want to provide a good area of scratching surfaces so that they can keep their claws in shape on their furniture and not the furniture they "allow" us humans to use.

From my experience with several cats over the years and various versions of the cat condos, trees and/or houses, I have learned that there is no cat furniture of this nature that a cat will turn their back on. Most seem very cat friendly in nature and vibrations.

Of course none of us would think of pampering our cats or kittens too much, but giving them their own space to scratch, climb and lounge in a safe environment is not "too much" pampering! Your cat or kitten will be well-behaved and entertained for hours with the introduction of cat furniture of this nature.

    Great hub. I buy my cat things like this. She likes them at first, then gets bored with them.

    Hello lucybell! Our cat gets bored with the "regular" toys pretty quickly. The "condo" we got her several years ago is placed in the apartment where she can keep an eye on three rooms and still is her favorite "perch" place along with a window ledge of course. :) Her favorite toy is an old shoestring with a feather on it that I play with her with...for several years!

    Thanks for stopping by, reading and commenting!

    Hello mythbuster! Glad that you found the review helpful about the cat condos. :) Our cat loves the one we go for her about four years ago. They hold up remarkably well over the years. While I was putting it together, she "claimed" it, lol! It is her "space" now, for years.

    Thanks for stopping by, reading and commenting!
