Cat Trees may also be called a cat condo or cat stand. It is an artificial structure for cats to play, exercise and relax on. The tree varies in height with cats preferring ones that are tall enough to allow them to see everything in their environment.
They are usually constructed of wood and covered with carpet or a similar fabric that encourages and allows a cat to scratch. Trees are often used specifically to prevent scratching of other household items, the sofa . In addition to carpet, trees may contain other desirable items to encourage scratching of the tree such as sisal rope and cat toys.
They are named as such because they typically have several platforms at differing angles that aid in exercise for the cat as well as a means for the cat to reach the top.
The term 'condo' is based on more extensive tree that contain enclosed areas for the cat to hide in.
Having a tree for your cat, enhances the pet keeping hobby and promotes a life long bond between you and your precious furry friend.
