Often I hear from cat owners the objection why they should get a cat tree when their cats are perfectly fine with sitting on the window sills and looking out the window. Well, to tell the truth, that‘s just one part of your cat‘s life.
Of course cats like to sit somewhere high up there in order to overlook things and actions. A behavior that comes from their natural stalking instinct. They also like to climb though, to jump, to stretch, roam, rub, scratch and play. And last but not least they like to take a nap.
So, your first question might be: why would I need a cat playpen? Well, if you are a working person with one or more cats waiting at home for you, you might actually be interested. A cat playpen could look on first sight a little intimidating in terms of the comfort for cats. Some customers really mentioned their concerns before purchasing one of these Top 4 Cat Playpens, just to discover that their cats obviously love their new condo.
A Cat Playpen is definitely to be considered in very common situations that you might have with your cat or cats. One of the most prevalent reason is the fact that you are for a longer time not at home and your cats are roaming freely your whole house or apartment, scratching where they shouldn’t. Don’t forget to add a small litter box in the cat cage.
Cats are predators. And as predators they are equipped with great weapons: their claws. And those claws need continuous attention and care by the cat. Well, you know how they do that. They scratch on everything they get their claws on, even if it is your furniture. And this is the moment where you as cat owner come in.
You don’t need to accept that your cat is continuously scratching your furniture, and you shouldn’t. There are several reasons why your cat is scratching your furniture, all of them are important for you to know about in order to have a correct reaction from your side. For your furniture and for your cat’s health. And this correct reaction consists in getting an appropriate cat scratching post.
Cats belong besides dogs to the favorite pets of people all over the world. I can’t blame them. Cats are just amazing. They insist on living their personalities which is most often very autonomous and strong-minded. I say most often, because there are of course some cats showing more dog-like behavior with more need for attention and attachment.
But – and this is an important “but” – cats are still predators. And yes, they don’t lose this characteristic even when they live their whole life inside. As being predators cats have a huge urge for motion, such as running, jumping and climbing. As cat owner you surely can tell a thing or two about it. Also as being predators cats need to sharpen their “weapons”, meaning claws, from time to time. Cat trees can meet both of these needs in the most perfect way – if your cat is an indoor cat, but also if your cat has the opportunity to go outdoors.
