If you think that cat condos are just towers without any of the fluff and stuff, you are mistaken. Producers have come a long w
ay with making cat condos more than just a relaxing place for your feline, while being unique at the same times.
These days unique cat condo are coming with scratching posts and toys to keep your cats attention. Some of these condos even look exactly like an apartment complex! There are some super creative people out there that are making these products.
When it comes to scratching posts it is one of the most needful things you can get for your cat. They need these items so they can stretch their paws and claws. It also keeps them from taking their claws to your furniture, curtains or other items you wouldn’t want damaged.
One thing you need to think about when you are picking out a scratching post is what kind of rope is it made out of. You are going to want a sisal rope that is oiled, but non-toxic. A quality rope would be 3/8”. A cheaper rope, which would not hold up as well would be 1/4”.
Another thing to make sure of is the height of the scratching post. You want it to be tall enough that your cat can really reach and stretch those claws and their muscles. The more you accommodate your pet in this area the less likely they are to scratch things they are not suppose to.
I really had this problem with one of my cats, but after taking these considerations into account I was able to eliminate this problem completely!
Toys are very helpful for a cat’s paw/eye coordination. It helps them obtain that talent that they can later use for hunting. It also helps get out that energy a indoor cat might have, or perhaps a cat that is indoor bound for the winter. When it comes to the type of toys available you really don’t have to worry about anything special. Just as long as your cat likes it.
While doing my research I have found several really cool enclosed condos. These are very creative and something I would not even expect to buy. But lucky for us, these products are out there for our pleasure! From ice cream trucks, to lighthouses, to jails, the possibilities are almost endless with what is there to offer.
I will guide you to through some cat condo reviews that I think will fit your taste along with your pocketbook.
I’d like to point out that this page took me a little while to put together for reviews. There is quite a bit out there that just does not meet quality standards. I was finally able to find something I think will be of great quality while still fitting in with some uniqueness.
But before you read ahead, check this out…
