 We're moving!

Hey Vertical Cat fans... we're moving! Yes, we're moving to Lake In The Hills, IL. 

As always, you'll get the same great quality and cat love that Terry puts into each and every piece. All our pieces are made in America and made of American-made Oak and Birch veneer plywood. 

Our pieces take approximately 4 to 6 weeks to build, but you may get it sooner depending on what you order. Why does it take weeks to ship? Because every piece is custom-made to your specifications and Terry makes each piece himself. I've tried to clone him, but so far no luck!

While we can't promise you speed, we can commit to building solidly constructed cat trees, shelves and stairs that are designed for kitties of all sizes, ages and physical abilities. Our stairs are especially perfect for most cats, including young, handicapped and elderly kitties who can't jump long distances.

The Vertical Cat was the first to offer wall-mounted Cat Stairs and custom pieces like our Wrap Around Cat Shelf and Corner Cat Stair, defining what it means to create custom catifications offer no boundries for your kitties and that can work in most any home. Now we've added in Cat Bridges and our very popular Cat Beds and Cat Feeding Stations -- not to mention our awesome innovative Alexa Corner Cat Tree and Purrsilla Cat Tree. We've created cutting edge solutions on how to catify most any home. 

So check out what we have to offer. Vertical Cat products are only available from The Vertical Cat. Above is a picture of "Mowgli enjoying his new digs," says his awesome cat guardian, Russ. 

Now available! Our new Cat Bridge!

The Vertical Cat's Ceiling Cat Bridge

You can now create the ultimate catification with our new ceiling-mounted Cat Bridge. After 2-1/2 years of development we've created a Bridge that can be installed in most homes custom-made especially for you! 

The Vertical Cat's Ceiling Cat Bridge
Our Bridges attach to the wall, have railings and ceiling supports. We also offer an optional Bridge Tunnel and optional removable carpet. And we can create a custom bridge walkway just for you attaching to three or four walls.

Our super solid bridge is modular giving you flexibility to create a custom Bridge just for you and your kitties. Our Bridge Shelves attach to the walls and to our Bridge Walkways. The Walkways come in different lengths and have a railing on each side to increase kitty safety and to make the bridge stronger. Depending on how many feet your Bridge is, you'll likely need a couple of our Bridge Ceiling Supports. 

The Bridge Walkways feature optional carpet. And you can add one or more of our Bridge Tunnels which have a peek out hole for kitties to look out from. The top of the Tunnel is open.

The Bridge is set to be 18" from the ceiling and is wide enough for kitties to get a comfy nap or to pass another cat. And your Bridge will be custom made to fit your room. 

So consider creating the ultimate kitty superhighway.

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 and Birch 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!
