Cat trees, also known as activity trees, cat condos, towers and playhouses, are a fabulous way for your cat to keep themselves active, get some exercise and rest all at the same time.
All of this can be done indoors, too. Whether you have an indoor cat or simply one which can’t seem to tire itself out, cat trees are a perfect solution.
Many also feature spaces where they can keep their claws sharp, which could save you from having numerous cat scratching posts everywhere. If you’re short on space, models which are tall rather than wide are available. Cats can also sleep on their tree, saving you more space.
There are hundreds available online and in stores, but to find the best for you and your cat, you’re going to have to consider quite a few factors. As well as the size and uses, the cost can be a big factor. Trees can range from £30/£40 to well over £100 for large models.
You’ll also need to consider something that is suitable for multiple cats if you have a few. Features like hanging toys, hiding spots and ladders can also encourage play.
We have told you all you need to know and rounded down the choice into an ultimate guide to the best cat trees around.
