Coming soon! New Scratching Posts...
Check out the Scratching Post we've been working on with replaceable sisal inserts. The wood post will come in all our standard finishes, along with a section of the post which will be sisal. Once the sisal wears out, you'll be able to order a new insert and replace just that section. As with all our furniture, the posts will be meant to last for years, not months.
Check out our first prototype with Amber exploring her inner cat. Amber is one of Terry's dogs and she likes to be in the spotlight. Luckily she's an awesome model, although she is a bit of a diva.
While we're still working on this piece, we're expecting this and two other Scratching Posts to be available within the next month or so. The one pictured has a perch with our standard removable carpet. There will also be one without the perch. The other Scratching Post will be a wall mounted scratching post that will be a good climbing and scratching option.
The Scratching Posts will match our other pieces in look and finish. Stay tune for more on these soon.We're now offering Gift Certificates

Did you catch us on My Cat From Hell?
Jackson Galaxy's My Cat From Hell
just had an awesome "Hell-iday Special" and we were featured in a
segment called "Finn". In the segment, Jackson was called in to help a
family (Courtney, her husband and their young baby son) who were having
troubles with their energetic Bengal cat, Finn.
We set them up
with five wall mounted shelves (a 3-Step Cat Stair, a Cat Tunnel, a
Corner Cat Stair, and two 23" Cat Shelves) to help create a kitty
superhighway to help keep Finn out of the crib and from helping so much
while mom and dad were in the nursery with their baby. Check out their
wall of shelves on below.
This is our third appearance on My Cat From Hell, which is on the Animal Planet. The series has been picked up for a fifth season with 16 all new episodes next year.
season in "Pip," a one-eyed, handicapped black cat was terrorizing the
other cat in the house, Red. Our furniture was used so Red could go up
and have vertical space, while Pip learned Red wasn't a toy to beat up
on. Then in "Lucy" a couple were worried about the arrival of their new
child and the problems they were having with their cat.
If 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 show.
Below is a picture of Red from the "Pip" 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 post lots of pictures and chat about our day to day operations on both Facebook and Twitter. So if you like our furniture, please like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter .
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!
