The Importance of Vertical Space


Make your cat happy with these tested and approved vertical space solutions!

Cats have an innate need to jump and climb that dates back to their wildcat ancestry. These natural behaviours should be encouraged by providing safe outlets. Creating vertical space encourages much needed exercise and decreases tension in the multi-cat home—if you have more than one cat, vertical spaces play a critical role in how well your cats will get along. Make your cat happy with these tested and approved vertical space solutions!

This gorgeous, wall-mounted vertical space solution has it all! The Juggernaut complex from Catastrophic Creations features a cat bridge, escape hatches, floating sisal posts, lounges, planters, and a sisal pole. Great for one or multiple cats, the Juggernaut has a lot of safe space to climb, scratch, and relax, which can help to reduce competition for space and other territorial behaviours.

    I volunteer at an animal shelter. The cats are housed in a series of fairly small rooms. It’s amazing to see the harmony created by providing a variety of vertical options for the cats. When a new cat is introduced into the room, the inhabitants head for higher ground!

    So this is why my Meeko cat never seems interested in the pet houses and most toys that I have given her. Maybe I’ll try buying a vertical wall hanging corridors for cat this weekend. Thank you so much for your advice.
