Every cat owner knows just how picky their pet can be about lounging spots—ignoring toys or abandoning a nice, cushy bed because they prefer the box the bed was delivered in. Likewise, cat owners can commiserate over cats scratching at furniture or climbing onto places they shouldn’t be. A cat tree is a great way to give your kitty a safe place to satisfy those urges.
We’ve chosen our favorite cat trees.
Hours of play. Amazon
This cat tree has it all—numerous platforms for climbing, a dangling cat toy for playing, jute scratching posts to satisfy your cat’s desire to claw, a hideaway, and a perch at the top where your cat can observe the goings on of the household. And if you’re looking for other swanky features, AmazonBasics has models with hammocks, ladders and tunnels.
A little private palace. Amazon
