Cat Furniture - Things to Consider
There are many things to consider before buying cat furniture, here are a few:
Size One of the biggest considerations is the size of the cat tower, and the available space that you have for it in your home. Not only do some of these cat towers take up a large footprint on the floor, but they come in a variety of heights, up to and beyond 6ft tall.
Multiple Cats How many cats do you have? If you have multiple cats, be sure that there are enough perches or condos for at least several cats at a time.
Size of your Cats The size and weight of your cats will also be important. Large cats will need perches and covered condos that are large enough to accommodate them. Cats weighing more than 14 pounds will require strong sturdy construction. Ensure that perches on long poles have added support or reinforcement. Some cat towers have midway platforms that connect all poles, thus giving added support to the taller perches. Also ensure that you retighten screws every few weeks or months.
Carpet Some cat trees are completely surrounded by carpet, including the underside of perches, some aren't. Some cat furniture uses faux fur instead of carpet. Some people prefer the look ane feel of faux fur over carpet, whereas some think carpet provides more cushioning, as well as better grip.
Age of Cat If you have older cats you might want a cat tower with ramps to help them reach the higher levels.
Scratching Posts Almost all cat owners want a good scratching post included in their cat tree, with sisal rope being the preferred material. If you cat will use the scratching post, hopefully that will minimize the damage to human furniture!
Style There are cat towers that are stylish and will fit into your sleek stylish home, they look more like furniture than the classic cat condo. If you select a carpeted cat condo, consider whether the color of the cat condo will fit in your home, or choose an more neutral beige color.
Assembly Most cat condos or towers require assembly when they arrive. There were some that came with limited instructions on how to assemble the units, while others were clearly labelled and more straight forward. There are a few cat towers that come pre-assembled, so if you want to avoid the hassle, look into those. Use the cat condo reviews as a guide, but remember, it's also very subjective; what is easy for one person to assemble can be a headache for another, and vice versa.

Many cats that are insecure will benefit from having a place to "perch". It can give them a sense of security and dominance to get up high, and away from things. This is also often helpful to a situation with multiple cats if one is being bullied or picked on. Allowing them somewhere to get away can sometimes help.
