International shipping is now available!

Thanks to Bongo International we now are offering international shipping for shoppers around the world. Just select the items you want in our store and go to your shopping cart and select "Outside The US?" button. Bongo then takes you through the process. 

Once we get the order, we process it as usual, which normally takes two to three weeks for us to build your shelves and trees. We ship to Bongo's facilities in the U.S., and then your order ships to you. A few days later you receive your new cat furniture. 

Depending on where you live, pricing looks to be somewhere around two or three times what you'd pay in the U.S. But they'll give you the pricing before you place your order.

So Australia, England, Japan, Italy and people from all the other countries we've heard from who've been waiting for us to be able to ship internationally, we're ready to spread The Vertical Cat love around the world.

A little about our cat furniture...

Cats love to go up...
and we want to help them do just that! We at The Vertical Cat™ 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.


Rufus and Stormi on wall-mounted stairsOur custom made 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!
