What’s a Cat Tower?
A Cat Tower is really another name for a Cat Tree. Cat Trees and Cat Towers play a really important role in your cat’s life. This is a place in your home where your cat can climb, play, scratch and sleep in a vertical space safely and confidently.

Best Cat Towers
In our opinion, the best cat towers are those that have the following characteristics:
- They are sturdy and well made – many tall cat towers are made with flimsy materials. This can mean that the cat towers are wobbly. A wobbly cat tower is not what you want for your cat. They simply will not use the cat tower if this is the case and then you have a large piece of cat furniture in your home collecting dust…and taking up a lot of room.
- They offer multiple options for your cat – the best cat towers have somewhere for your cat to sleep (perhaps a perch or a house), an area to scratch (such as an inbuilt cat scratcher) and some way to climb from “branch to branch” (either by jumping or via a ramp). Some cat towers are 3 or 4 “stories” and can be as tall as 6 foot. Multiple levels and platforms allow your cat to climb, jump and play which are essential activities for your cat’s wellbeing.
