You and your family decided that it would be a good idea to rescue a cat from a local pet shelter. Now, before you go and pick up that little furry critter, make sure that you have cat furniture in place so it can feel right at home when you do bring it home.
If you don't have cat furniture in place, then your cat might be uncomfortable and with cats, everything is about making good first impression because if you don't, then you're cat might never warm up to its new surroundings.
So, you might be wondering what kind of cat furniture you are going to need and one of the things that you should start with are cat condos or cat houses. They look like long, wide cylindrical tunes that have open compartments where you cat can go to nap, sleep, or just be alone when it needs to. There are options that feature two openings, some that feature three, and you can even get ones that have up to four or five compartments. Generally, these openings will be vertical standing on top of one another off the ground. However, there are horizontal options to, great for a cat that has problems jumping. The material commonly used to make them is plywood and carpeting. The carpeting gives your cat a lot of comfort when it's lying down.
Not only does your new cat need a place to sleep, but she also needs a place to place as well. You don't want her to tear apart your regular furniture, so, to keep your cat happy and occupied, you can turn to cat trees. They look just like a tree with a central trunk with limbs sticking out of it. Again, they are made from wood and carpeting like the cat condos since in order for them to be able to handle your cat clamoring all around on them, they need to be durable. Another nice cat furniture option for helping your cat expel some of its energy are kitty gyms, they are like the deluxe version of the cat tree because not only do they have limbs, but perches and some will even come with hanging toys.
In addition to the selections just talked about, there are actually a slew of other cat furniture options that you could purchase for your cat. A great way to see them all is by simply turning on that computer of yours and doing some comparison shopping on the Internet. In a matter of minutes you can check out all the options that are available without even taking one step outside of your home. If you do make a purchase, it will be shipped right to you so you don't have to waste time, money, or gas on a trip to the pet store.
When it comes down to it, if you are rescuing or purchasing a cat, cat furniture is something that you need to invest it because without it, your cat won't feel at home.
