Check out this diy hefty tree branch turned awesome cat tree.
Cat trees are not just an extravagant purchase for cat owners. These are actually a great addition to an indoor environment.
People live in horizontal world, yet cats live in vertical world and rely on the elevated areas for comfort, safety, fun, and exercise. If you have had to retrieve your cat from the top of your bookcase or refrigerator, you know how much she’ll enjoy being on the tall perch in your room.
A cat tree can also provide peace of mind for cats. In multi cat environment, vertical territory will help keep peace since high ranking cat may claim the highest possible perch to show status.
In other cases where 2 cats could have engaged in physical confrontation, the high perch’s availability may enable high ranking cat to show her position through climbing up there rather than having to fight physically. It may also be a way to maintain harmony if you have many cats.
A cat tree may also give cats a safe haven to stay out in the open while keeping a sense of security. When she is on the high perch, she can easily see her environment and has visual warning time of advancing opponents. The tree may also give comfort to timid cats.
There are other benefits of having a cat tree for your cat. If you want to add a personal touch with your pet’s cat tree, why not make one on your own? Angel Chang offers a guide on Little Things that shows how you can create a cat tree through using branches.
