10 Modern Cat Trees That Blend Form and Function
Cats enrich our lives with their presence—and whether that presence is affectionate or adorably aloof, it's important to remember that all felines need some alone time to rest, groom, and just be.
"Cats crave their own space and giving them a cat tree or condo that is all theirs offers them a comfortable retreat with a familiar feeling and scent," affirms Dr. Jesus Aramendi, senior veterinarian at Chewy. "Having cat trees deters them from scratching furniture and other surfaces around the house, which can put cat parents' minds more at ease."
Cat trees come in all shapes and sizes. When you shop for one, look for something that's texturally intriguing to your furry friend. "Usually, cat trees are built with carpeted fabric, scratch pads, and ropes that stimulate their natural instincts," says Dr. Aramendi. Just be sure to read the specifications about the materials used in the cat trees: Options made from organic fibers free of dyes are preferred, but synthetic fibers can also be safe if they're non-toxic.
In addition to being functional for your feline, you also want a cat tree that looks aesthetically pleasing in your home. Whether you're buying a single-level iteration or a tiered condo for multiple cats, there are plenty options on the market that blend form and function.
