If you’re looking for some gift ideas for your cat this Christmas, look no further than to cat furniture. While catnip and other treats may be tasty, these gifts can lead to obesity and health problems.
Cat trees, on the other hand, are a great way to help the little guys (big guys!) enjoy the holiday with the rest of the family. Plus, they’ll continue to benefit through the rest of the year.
Cat trees can offer much-needed outlet for exercise for many indoor cats. The textured surfaces, resting platforms, enclosures, and dangling add-ons provide hours of enrichment.
Cat tunnels are another fun way to tap into your cat’s natural instincts. These flexible tunnels are easy to store; the unique material makes them resistant to snags while creating an intriguing sound that encourages play.
When looking for a cat tree, consider the height of the room you’re going to place the piece in. If traffic flow is a concern for you, then avoid buying a tree that borders your comfort zone – you won’t be happy leaning around it. Also consider the overall footprint of the unit. They can be large and bulky so even if you have enough floor space, think hard to determine if the unit is going to overpower the room.
Another nice touch during the holiday is to include your pet on your Christmas costumes. While it may not be feasible to take the animal to the portrait studio, often its’ easy to find a photographer who is willing to visit your home for little to no extra charge. Consider this fun idea – dress your cat in a Christmas head piece or costume and have your photo taken together while she’s on the cat tree!
