Climbing, jumping, and napping up high are not just your kitty’s random feel-good behaviour, their need to be up high is instinctual. Cats are tree-climbing mammals.
Early cats were hunters and many of them lived in the rain forests. Their claws enabled them to climb skilfully, escaping into trees for safety or climbing to lie in wait for prey.
Nowadays, cats who live indoors are safer than their outside cousins, but they often become bored and gain weight. There are however ways to avoid it. Vertical territory with perches at different heights inspires cats to jump, climb and leap and then to ideally rest up high so they can keep a watchful eye on their human companions and survey their kingdom from a high vantage point.
Our CHILL cat shelves give the cat a better vantage point. From that location, the cat can survey his 'realm' and be more aware of activities of people and other pets. If a cat is anxious or afraid, it may get him farther away from the cause of his anxieties (e.g.; pesky dog or small children).Why our shelves are so unique?
Our super-comfy wall-mounted CHILL shelf was designed by experts and like minded cat lovers who had both the cats and the owners needs in mind. With its sleek designer look and curved wooden lounging surface which cradles your cat perfectly and complements any interior.
Heavy-duty hidden brackets measure 16” apart so they can easily mounted into wall studs or into a solid wall. Because they are totally concealed, it gives the CHILL shelf a classic floating design that fits with any type of interior de?cor, modern or traditional. And of course all our shelf cushions are machine washable.
