Tired of looking at same-old, same-old, tacky cat trees? Me too! So I'm on a kick to share cat trees that look good to humans and that cats love for their own reasons: scratching, climbing, hiding, and sleeping.
Some cat trees (towers, stands, condos, etc.) are best suited for different activities. Your choice will depend on your cat's specific needs, but I think you'll find them attractive and functional.
Here are three of my favorites:
One of the latest Feandrea cat tree models, the 34 inch, is perfect for small to medium cats with low to moderate activity needs. This model has three beds and a hideout house, a full-size sisal post, a sisal mat, and soft, washable faux fur. It's a handsome engineered wood piece made to be reminiscent of "a rustic, snow-covered alpine hut."
The Feandrea 34.6 Inch Cat Tree is great for apartment living, as well as dens, basements, and other rooms where your cats' family hangs out. Here are the dimensions:
This image will give you an idea of how it might fit into your decor:
Not your style? Well how about this off-white plywood version of the Freandrea?

Amazon cat parents are high on the Feandrea, but you do have to put it together.
Wouldn't you love to take a nap in the big deep bowl of the PetPals Perch Cat Tree? Ah, to be a cat! The lovely weave is hand-made of paper, a kind of old-fashioned approach to a cat bed. It looks very rustic, I think.
The sisal posts just provide enough of a scratching surface for a cat who's not too tall, but the bed and perch do hold cats up to 25 pounds, according to the manufacturer.
Here are the specs:
As you can see, the top perch is considerably smaller than the basket, so if you have a medium to large cat, I would say the basket is for him. The cushion in the basket is washable; the mat on the perch is not removable. Reviews are very positive; assembly is required, but tools are provided.
With many surfaces to scratch and cozy cubbies to nap, your cats can't ignore this Cat Tree For Large Cats. Forty-seven inches wide and 42 inches high, this 3-dimensional cat playground is perfect for large cats, but also multiple cats.
Reportedly, this cat tree is very sturdy once you put it together and lock in its joints. Reports for time putting the tree together came in between 1/2 hour (whiz kid!) and 4 hours. Some say directions are not clear. Get some help if you have to, because once you've dealt with setting it up, cat owners say it's worth it.
Although there are only two short scratching posts in this cat tree, the material on the two slopes seems strong enough to withstand scratching. There is a mini-version of this cat playground here.
Not too long ago, I posted this blog about another one of my faves - The Good Life 63” Modern Design Cat Tree House with Scratching Post Tower.
That's the buzz for today!
