Introducing the Purrsilla Cat Tree
Our newest cat tree has a new name! Formerly the New Madison, the name has been changed and the tree is now called the Purrsilla Cat Tree.
Thanks to our "Help Us Name Our New Madison Cat Tree" Facebook contest, hundreds of potential names were entered and we furiously battled for our favorites. We eventually settled on the Purrsilla Cat Tree. You can check out our Facebook page to read the entries http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Vertical-Cat/253196968052746 .
In the end it came down to our memory of a little 19-year-old kitty who recently passed named Purrsilla. Terry's daughter, Clarrissa was her pet guardian and the old girl has been greatly missed.
Also we thought the name was cute for a cat tree, and we couldn't find any other Purrsilla Cat Trees on the internet.
Congratulations to Samantha Maurice, who submitted the name Purrsilla first on our Facebook page. Samantha will get a 4-Step Cat Stair.

We were on My Cat From Hell!
We've made our TV debut! That's right! We were on Jackson Galaxy's My Cat From Hell in an segment called "Pip," about a one-eyed, handicapped black cat who was terrorizing the other cat in the house, Red.
you've read our story you know that our company was inspired by Jackson
in the first place. So we're thrilled to have our items featured on his
Pip has a neurological condition I can't pronounce that makes it hard for him to walk. And he has only one eye. But it didn't stop him from giving Red a hard time. Our shelves, stairs and cat tree gave Red a place to hang out that took him out of the line of Pip's fire. It was a great episode and showed the value of vertical space for cats. You can see follow up on the Animal Planet's website at http://animal.discovery.com/tv-shows/my-cat-from-hell/videos/pips-follow-up.htm to see how things are going for Red and Pip.
Below is a picture of Red from the
episode. He's sitting on our Window Cat walk, and behind him you'll see
our Cat Shelf, 4-Step Stair and our Alexa Corner Cat Tree. Our Wrap
Around Cat Shelf was also featured in the episode.
We've got a couple more episodes our furniture will be on this season.

Our Cat Tunnel is expanding...
Cats love our Cat Tunnel, so we figured
why not make it bigger! And we did. Our new supersized Big Cat Tunnel is
almost 4' long. The super roomy interior is a great place for a cat
nap, even if you have more than one kitty that wants a cozy hideaway.
Check out the beautiful Anna Lee above with her new tunnel in Walnut with a Cat Face cutout. Thanks Laurie for submitting the pictures of Anna Lee and her BFF, Mr. Sandwich.
We're getting some pictures and more information will but up soon, but you can order the Big Cat Tunnel right now.

A little about our cat furniture...
Cats love to go up... and we want to help them do just that! We offer a line of affordable, contemporary cat furniture that's design to help you create a cat friendly environment in your home.
You can mix and match our cat trees, shelves, tunnels, and stairs to enrich your kitty's environment by letting him or her get to those desirable vertical spaces only a cat can dream of reaching. Whatever wall or floor space you have available, you can make that area work for you and your cats.
Our handcrafted cat furniture is ...
... made of Oak veneer plywood and the carpet on our trees and shelves is SmartStrand® eco-friendly carpeting. Better than that, our carpet is super cushiony to give your cats a comfy place to survey their domain or take a catnap. And even better than that, all our carpet is removable for cleaning or replacement.
But the best thing of all is ...
... our furniture really does look like furniture, furniture you'll be proud to own and furniture your kitty will be happy to leap on, walk on, run on, sit on and sleep on.
We're based out of the Chicago area, but we're happy to ship to your location. All our furniture is made by us specifically for you! And we're pretty reasonably priced. Our stuff costs about what you'd pay at Big-Box MegaPets for cat trees made of fiberboard and carpet.
Please take a look inside our site and our web store. And enjoy the rest of the pictures and captions throughout our pages. In fact, send us some of your own cat pictures for our Pictures page.
And if you find a typo or have a suggestion, let us know. Thanks for visiting!
