Hand-made feline heaven – Gold paw
Gold Paw! It’s a familiar story… Stefan Hofman had a cat. The cat, Mowgli, being a typical cat, needed entertainment and distraction from the furnishings. The outcome is Goldtatze, superbly designed and hand-made.
To a non-cat lover, this all seems a bit extreme, but, as an animal lover, the merit – and benefits – are obvious. The cats are given the opportunity to do what they would do in the wild without impacting the outside environment.
Cats have an instinctual need to climb and scratch. Perfect play structure to bring out the acrobat in your cat, physically and mentally challenge your feline friend.
Most cats avoid being seen by predators and will usually hide when they sense a threat. Cats are most vulnerable when they are on the ground or in an exposed location.
A cat’s first instinct is to run away, but if that is not possible, the animal will hide. A cat that feels threatened will climb a tree, jump up on a ledge, or hide behind a bush. Cats will also use hollow logs, buildings and cupboards.
These are the reasons why cats love heights. The higher grounds make them feel more secure as they can see everything.
Starting at around €300 per component, these cat homes could be a very expensive exercise. The cost is undoubtedly justified by the thought behind the designs and the obvious quality of the units.
But, if you have the time, it’s all very doable with some basic tools.
The Cat Climber
The cat climber is an often overlooked, but very useful addition to any home with a cat. Cats are very active animals and enjoy the opportunity to play and exercise.
The cat climber is a very effective, and often very easy, way to provide your cat with a place to climb and play. There are various cat climber designs you can choose from but the cat climber for these Gold Paws will surely leave you in amazement.
And if you’re one of those who don’t mind spending a lot for their fur babies just to see them happy, then you’re in the right place.
The Wall Bowl
This cat loft is wall mounted. It looks like a bowl mounted on a higher wall where your cats love to relax and sleep. Undoubtedly, these cats have gold paws.
Well, as beautiful as chandeliers on the ceiling, these cat’s ceiling hammock is expensive yet will be the best haven for your beloved feline.
Cats, no matter what age, love spending time in hammocks, especially when they can sleep together with their furry friends.
There are several cat hammocks on the market, but they are mostly made of cheap materials and breeds. The hammock presented here, however, has a beautiful wooden frame and can come in a wide range of colours.
These ceiling hammocks are best with wall climbers.
A cat climbing column can be a great alternative to cat trees and scratching posts. If you don’t have the space for a cat tree and for scratching posts, a cat climbing column can be a great addition to your home.
It’s a safe place for your cat to climb and play, without the need to have a big piece of furniture in your living room. A cat climbing column is a good furniture choice if you live in a small home, apartment or condo.
It can also be a great choice if you have a kitten and you want them to have their own place to play and climb.
