Cat Condos Exercise And Fun For Our Feline Friends

Having been rescuing and befriending abandoned cats for over 26 years, I have become very cognizant of the importance of providing and maintaining our furry friends’ once active outdoor lifestyles to their new indoor environment. My current three “wonder cats” – Mikko, Panther and Buddy – used to be very active outdoors; some activities were of a “fending one’s turf”, resulting in the showing of “battle scars”; some were more of a playful nature, ie. running, chasing and climbing. Deciding to transition my kids to be solely indoor inhabitants was due mostly to their well-being and overall health. Because of this I was concerned about how to maintain their active lifestyles, maintain a healthy body weight, and offer a quality of life which was both fun and relaxing.

After succeeding in coaxing my guys indoors (it took me 2 YEARS to finally get Panther to trust me enough to come indoors, and even then continued to be a “process”!), I wanted to offer them a quality of life where I felt I wasn’t depriving them in any way by keeping them indoors, while maintaining their health.

Along with investigating the most optimal nutritional needs for my guys, I wanted them to get the most out of indoor exercising tools. I researched and discovered that cat condos, trees and beds (also known as furniture) offered a specific place for cats to call their own, in addition to providing them with fun, relaxation and most importantly exercise, due to the climbing, jumping, chasing and scratching (most coming with scratching posts) that seem to be common activities.

Out of this research I decided to start my own online business specializing in cat trees, condos and beds, both self-standing and wall mounted. I also have included on my website litter box cabinets with additional drawers, for those humans who prefer a more “hidden look” with cat’s “bathrooms” from the standard litter box areas.

I totally love watching my three felines in their cat tree. I have found on many occasions I turn the tv (and other “distractions”) off, and watch the “kids go at it”, they seeming to be totally immersed in their “jungle gym”. Knowing they are all having fun, and getting their exercise at the same time, makes me one happy dad.
