Why You Should Have a Cat Condo, Scratching Post and Jungle Gym for Your Own Cat

There are several reasons to create a feline oasis for your cat. Here are 6 reasons why you should provide your cat with a scratching post, condo, and jungle gym combo!

1. Health: A cat that exercises is a healthy, happy cat.

2. A Tired Cat is a Calm Cat: All the playing, jumping and scratching will keep your cat not only exercised and healthy but will also keep him calm. After all, aren't you ready to relax after a long jog?

3. Protect Your Furniture: Everyone knows the horrid effect that cat claws can have on your furniture. Cats scratch and pull at fabrics to clean and to sharpen their claws. It's a natural habit that can not be stopped even if your cat is de-clawed. Having a designated cat are with scratching posts will keep your cats scratching own his own furniture instead of yours. Cat posts are designed for scratching and will hold up for years to come.

4. Calming Effects: Aside from a tired cat being a calm cat, giving your feline friend a place of his own will allow him to feel safe and have his own territory. He will feel better knowing that he can hide and relax in a place all of his own when you have kids or have company over.

5. Prevents Cats from Tearing Down Your Home: With a designated are of his own, your cat will be less inclined to climbing curtains, laying on shelves, knocking these out of his way to find a cozy high spot, staying off cabinets for height reasons and ending up in places you don't want him.

While we both know he won't stay on the condo 24/7, I'm sure you soon find that he does lounge and play there the majority of the time that he is idle.

      I think the cat condos and towers are definitely the cat's meow. Cats love them.
