What to Know About Cat Shelving in 2022!

When you are fortunate enough to live with one of these amazing animals it is important to consider just how living situations may or may not affect them as they grow up.

Some cat owners prefer to design their house specifically to cater for cats natural social and development needs and to give you a special companion everything they could possibly wish for. This is particularly important for indoor cats.

There are many ways in which you can adapt your home in order to make it more comfortable and installing cat shelving or cat shells is one way to encourage mental and physical stimulation to keep them happy and content.

Cat shelves on the market today have been carefully designed and developed in order to cater specifically for cats.

Make no mistake, cats much prefer to be as high as possible as some cat owners may experience when they come back from a long day at work and realised that the cat is stuck on top of the kitchen cabinets.

Long-term, that is probably not the most practical solution and therefore cat shelves make a fantastic addition if you are lucky enough to be able to install them on your walls.

Ensuring that your cat is physically and mentally stimulated with cat shelving is guaranteed to reduce their stress and also make them feel safer, more secure and enrich their lives in ways which she never thought were possible.

The higher up your cat can get safely and securely, the better in their eyes.

They enjoy nothing more than looking down and surveying the surroundings just like Simba from the lion king!

If your cat feels threatened for any reason at all, cat shelving can provide the perfect escape route for them to feel comfortable and get that highest point.

If you’re planning on purchasing some cat shelving then what should you look for?

There are many different available options for cat shelving on the market today to cater for all budgets and styles.

If you have a larger breed that weighs over 7 kg then it is important not to invest in a product that may well be unsafe and not able to cater for their bulky weights.

For larger cats, we recommend high-quality, handmade cat shelving from our Goldtatze Range.

These products are incredibly robust and the very highest quality materials are used to manufacture them.

Not only this, but I also look fantastic and will last a lifetime!

If your budget is not able to stretch that far for handmade products, then we also have a fantastic budget range from Kerbl as well.

The Mont Blanc cat shelf, the Matterhorn cat shelf to name a few.

As you can see the price of those models are fantastic and we recommend those for small to medium size cats.

Cat shelf installation. Do’s and dont’s?

When placing your cat shelving it is important to ensure that they are positioned in such a way that your cat is able to make full use of the products.

Place them too high, and they won’t be able to jump on board. Place them too low, and they may not be able to get the satisfaction of a good view!

Ensuring that they are placed correctly is very important to ensure that you get maximum pleasure from the cat shelves.

Having some cat shelving close to a window is also a good idea so that your cat can watch the birds fly and the cars drive past or from the safety and comfort of their own cosy cat shelf.

Getting up to the top of your wall mounted cat shelving is the easy part. Getting down is often much more tricky for cats!

Therefore, please make sure that you carefully consider where are you placed the shelving in order to make it as easy as possible for your cat to navigate back down to the safety of the floor.

This is particularly important for cats who are not quite as agile as they used to be and also small kittens looking to get there first step up on the ladder!

Why not combine some sisal scratching rope as well onto your cat shelving so that they can have a good scratch as well as a good climb as well! Two for one!
