You and the family have decided that it's time to bring a pet into the home. And, the pet that you all want to go with is a cute little kitty cat. Now, before you bring him into your house, there are a few things that you are going to need to make him feel comfortable and that includes purchasing a cat house for him.
Why is getting a cat house such an important thing to do, well, it is because it will give your kitty his very own place to go when he wants to sleep, nap, or just feel safe. Without one, it's going to be hard for him to get comfortable and adjusted to his new surroundings. So, if you want to make his transition into your home easier, then it is definitely a must have.
Now that you know why you should purchase one, it is time to talk about what a cat house actually is. Generally, this piece of cat furniture will be cylindrical in shape and will sit about two to three feet off the ground with cut out holes where your cat can enter into. Sometimes there will be two holes and other times there will be three even four holes depending upon how tall of one you get. One with a lot of holes is a good idea if you have multiple cats, however, if you just have one, then the two hole option would be the way to go. The type of material that one will usually be crafted out of is some sort of durable wood that is covered in a fabric that is not easily damaged with carpeting being the most common fabric used.
In addition to purchasing a cat house for your pet, there are also a number of different cat furniture options that would also be a good investment with one of those being something that will give him a nice place to play. A cat tree, made similar to the house option with wood and carpeting, would be a great selection since it in the shape of a tree with a pole center with juxtaposing limbs that will allow him to run, jump, and play. If you want to go a little bit bigger then a kitty gym would be the way to go, it's like a cat tree, but on a more grander scale since it can also be filled with perches and hanging toys.
There are other cat furniture and cat house options to choose from as well along with the ones mentioned and a great way to see them all is by hitting the Internet for some online shopping. In a matter of minutes you can browse through all the choices and when you do purchase something, it will be shipped right to your home. Now that is convenient.
