Cats need lots of space to run around and play. If they don’t get it, they could end up with a host of health problems like obesity, diabetes, etc. and turn your lovely home into a torn apart demolition zone.
As cat owners, it can be very frustrating to live with cats when you only have a little bit of living space. Sometimes this happens because you are forced to move into a smaller apartment or maybe you just prefer living in a smaller home (less cleaning ftw! 🙂 ).
Just the other day some friends of mine were having a yard sale because they were moving from their big country home and yard to a much smaller, city apartment. Life happens but the important thing is that we give our cats what they need regardless of our situations.
So whatever your case may be, if you live in a small place, you won’t have any space for a huge cat tree yet you need something that is sturdy that can handle your cat’s daily banter.
In this post, I’ll be showing you the best cat tree for small apartments so that you can give your kitty what s/he needs without taking up too much space.
The Best Type of Cat Tree for Small Apartments
The good thing about cats is that you can increase their overall space by adding vertical structures like cat trees. So in essence, even though you can’t increase the size of your apartment, you sort of can in your cat’s eyes.
In order to do this, you will not be using a traditional standing cat tree but instead, you should install a wall-mounted cat tree.
Doing this will not take up any space in your apartment and it will give your cat a place to climb, play, lay, scratch and do all those things that cats love to do. In addition, wall-mounted cat trees can be customized to your liking and good ones won’t look like ‘cat trees’ at all.
Wall mounted cat trees are really awesome because they are so versatile and come in so many different forms. Here is a quick video of some super cat owners that utilize these structures to their fullest potential.
Cat shelves are basically platforms that your cat uses to jump from one height to the next. They are not stand-alone structures but instead are grouped together in intricate patterns across your wall.
Cat shelves can also be used to hold things for your cat like their food and water bowls. Some are even designed with slots for each.
