Every cat owner knows that you need to give your pet enrichment opportunities. People often have the misconception that the only thing cats do is sleep. They spend between 12 and 16 hours a day sleeping, so that means there are 12 to 8 hours that they are awake and need entertainment. A bored cat can be a destructive cat. No one wants to come home to find the toilet paper roll empty and strewn across the entire living room.

It is important to give your cat things to keep them happy and occupied, like toys. But if you are nervous to leave your cat home alone with certain toys (because some cats try to swallow their own toys), there are other options. Cat trees and towers are great enrichment areas in the home that are specific to just your pet. If you have a dog and a cat, your kitty can get away from the dog whenever they want alone time by climbing to the top of their tower. These areas also give your cat chances to hide, climb, scratch, and play. And of course, nap.

Tuft + Paw sells a birch plywood cat tower that is made with white UV coating and has an amazing crystal hammock. It was featured in Dezeen magazine and has been deemed the “ultimate playground” for cats. It is big enough that it can support multiple cats of all shapes and sizes at one time.

This unique jungle gym gives cats endless opportunities for play and discovery to maintain their physical and mental health. Great for multi-cat households, the elaborate structure features two covered treehouses, two perches, and two slide-like scratching posts upholstered in a durable carpet fiber. Made of natural birch plywood, it’s built to last, and features animal-friendly curved corners for safety.

If you love this cat tower from Tuft + Paw, you can backorder it now through May 2019, as it is currently out of stock. It is on the very pricey side, as it retails for $949. It is 62″ tall and 53″ wide, so it will take up a lot of real estate in your home. If are on the market for a cat tower, but don’t want to shell out that kind of money, you can get a more affordable tower from Amazon for $128.99 from Vesper.
