Best Cat Trees for Large Cats
Cats love to climb, scratch, and sleep above ground. When you have indoor cats this becomes more difficult as they will climb and scratch your furniture and probably sleep on your worktops. How do you avoid this? Well, my advice is to purchase a cat tree. Here they will have the opportunity to act in the same way as an outdoor cat.
However, perhaps you are a little worried that a cat tree won’t be able to support your larger cat. Perhaps you have a cat that is a little overweight or you have a big cat like a Maine Coon or Bengal. If so, don’t despair. There are plenty of cat trees out there which are strong enough and big enough to cope with your larger cat, even ones as big as 20lbs or more. These cat trees may not be as cheap as the lightweight ones, but you will want to ensure that your cats won’t fall off or that the cat tree will collapse. In the long run, a stronger cat tree will last while you will have to replace a lightweight tree more often.
A cat tree for a larger cat should have condos, posts with sisal rope so that they can scratch to their heart’s content, toys, perches, and possibly tunnels. The more fun it is for your cats, the less likely it will be that they will destroy your furniture.
Here we will give you our list of the best cat trees for large cats. Most are tall and big and should suit your larger cats, whether you have one or more. The main thing to remember is to make sure that the cat tree weighs more than all your cats put together. Then you can be assured of its’ stability.
