When you buy yourself furniture, you’re careful to do your research and pick the pieces that are well-designed, well-made, and comfortable. So, it only makes sense that you’d do the same for your cat. Your feline friend deserves the best cat tree that money can buy, and we just found it on Etsy.

Alexander Hagendorf, the owner of Custom Cat Furniture, specializes in high-quality furniture for cats. He creates truly unique cat trees, scratching posts, and hammocks from materials like raw tree limbs, manila rope, and sisal carpet. Every item is handmade and can be customized to include whatever you want. Does your cat like to hide? Tower high above everyone else? Stretch out and lounge? All of the above, depending on the day? Basically, if you have a dream for your ideal rustic cat tree, Hagendorf can bring it to life.

“Working with you to create your cat’s perfect tree is my profession and I’m here to make the end product bring an endless amount of joy to you and your cats [sic] lives,” Hagendorf writes on Etsy.

The average price for a cat tree similar to the one pictured below is $5,000. It stands seven feet fall and includes one tunnel, two boxes, three baskets, and seven perches. If your vision contains more or fewer components, the price will increase or decrease accordingly.

Building a cat tree so complex can take anywhere from three to eight months. Hagendorf notes that he sources and dries all of his own wood, and waiting for it to dry accounts for a big part of the building process.

Of course, this is the crème de la crème of cat trees outfitted with every bell and whistle. If it’s out of your price range, Hagendorf also makes smaller, less robust items for just a few hundred dollars. We’re simply in awe of how beautiful these cat trees are. Do you think he’ll make furniture for humans, too?
