Cat people deserve more credit than the whole “crazy cat lady who drinks wine alone” thing.
And spoiling your cat doesn’t make you a crazy cat person. If people are paying $125 to get a freaking Casper memory foam bed for their dog, you’re allowed to ball out.
If you’re already planning what to get your cat for the holidays this year (or what to get for the cat person in your life), your fun discovery of the day is that cat trees are way more elaborate than you ever expected.
Instead of those shoddy, carpeted towers that throw off your home’s Feng Shui, we found 10 of the artsiest cat trees that the internet has to offer. Some are minimalistic, some are abstract, all of them are guaranteed to get compliments from guests. Plus, most double as scratching posts to keep your cat from clawing your actual furniture.
No floor space? No problem. This four-piece wall mounted tree allows them to pounce up the wall like they’ve always wanted to do, and the white, fluffy cushioning is perfect for naps.
These clean lines are everything. These birch plywood shelves are sold separately and let you choose the pattern on your wall, as well as your choice of light wood, dark wood, or white. Multiple holes in each shelf let your cat get creative with climbing.
Pause — you’re telling us this is a cat tree and not a sculpture in MoMA’s sculpture garden? The Refined Feline’s $369.99 (yes, actually) Lotus Cat Tower will pose elegantly in your living room corner like a metaphysical sculpture with four perches, a sisal scratch pad, and a hiding hole.
A single, curved line can go a long way. This wall-mounted cat tree truly just looks like a decorative shelf when a cat’s not sitting on it, but maybe don’t set anything important up there.
Alright, it doesn’t exactly fit the description of intarsia wood art, but this cat tree is definitely nice than some people’s kitchen tables. The dark veneer features a few holes for your cat to peel out of as well as a scratching post.
The contrast between these curved and straight lines is such an eye-catcher. This handwoven ball gives your cat a stylish cocoon while your guests will have no idea a cat is even in there.
Why aren’t cat trees that look like actual trees more of a thing? Cats have an innate instinct to hide in nature when getting ready to pounce — they also have an innate instinct to chew on your plants. This tree with three perches and artificial leaves speaks to both.
Why have one cave when you can have two? If you have two fur babies who do everything together, they’ll appreciate these double hideouts with mismatching shapes as the doorways.
People who drool over those TV stands with barn doors will dig this woven basket look. This simple tree has a private hideout for kitties who do not like to share, plus a scratching pad and a puff ball toy.
Boho living rooms are not complete without cacti, and this handmade cactus cat tree is the perfect subtle addition. The Etsy shop owners have stellar reviews and let you choose the colors down to the flowers and the ribbon.
