True, there are cat trees that are made to look like real trees. But these are basically fake and trust us when we say that cats know that these are not real trees. So, why not give your feline companions these indoor pet treehouses that are actually made from real trees? Before domestication, early cats were wild hunters that mostly live in the rain forests. Felines are endowed with sharp claws, enabling them to climb skillfully so they can easily escape into trees for safety. Furthermore, they climb up high on trees in wait for prey. Hence, climbing is a way of life for cats.
But after domestication, cats have been deprived of their wild instincts including tree climbing. Since they are often confined indoors, they tend to look for elevated areas like countertops and shelves to survey their surroundings. Some owners would give them indoor cat towers and elevated cat perches so they can settle on high places whenever they want. But despite all these, some cats still refuse to use these expensive towers and perches. This is because these pieces of furniture are far from the feel and scent of real trees. For this reason, Florida-based designers Shelley and Joe DelRocco created indoor pet treehouses that are made from actual trees.

“This method helps reduce captive stress and encourages your cat to stretch and scratch on the gnarled branches, bark, lichen and all.”, the DelRocco couple said.
These indoor pet treehouses are handcrafted from the finest quality real trees embellished with silk foliage to give cats a life-like audible and visual experience. It’s as if they’re climbing real trees in the rain forest. You can find these amazing treehouses in various designs, sizes, and colors on through their Etsy shop. Let your cats be cats by bringing out their natural instinct and their need to climb real trees.
