Why should you have a cat tree?

The benefits of the cat tree

 

  • The verticality (height) of the furniture increases the cat's territory, in addition to allowing it to better observe visitors... or prey. The cat marks its territory there by depositing pheromones (by rubbing its head, body or by scratching it).
  • The scratching posts allow him to do his claws. Depending on where it is placed, it can help reduce scratching on other furniture. The claws of cats keep growing all their life.
  • The caissons serve as small hiding places (resting places) from the noise of the daily hubbub. It also increases their sense of security.
  • Depending on the model, the cat tree can also be used as a game module, especially if it is shared.
*To encourage your cat to use the tree, place it in an interesting place for him (a place where he can observe, where there is movement), such as in front of a window. You can also put catnip (catmint) in it to attract it.
