The company’s complex cat playground feature’s long scratch posts, descending ramps, rope bridges, platforms and other structures perfectly suited for a cat’s acrobatics. According to their site, everything is hand-made, and some parts include real tree branches for a more natural feel.
As most cat owners know, a cat playground like this is much preferred to a tree, which cats might be able to climb but may have trouble getting out of. Cats love to climb trees because this confers both a predatory advantage over their prey and helps them watch out for aggressive animals or predators.
Although they are skilled climbers, their curved claws make it so they can only climb facing up. A cat must be willing to jump or to climb tail first to descend from a tree. Unfortunately, most cats prefer, panicking, meowing, and being rescued by firemen.
Humans aren’t the only species with ballooning waistlines: Our pets are getting fatter, too. Around 54 percent of dogs and cats are overweight or obese, according to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP). That comes out to about 50 million corpulent cats.
Most indoor cats get little sustained aerobic activity so a cat playground like this would do wonders for your felines health and fitness.
