Cats scratch trees are one of the things that is part of the basic equipment for cat owners. It is not only that the cats only scratch at it, but they also like to climb and play. Since they are small hunters, they especially like to sit in an elevated position where they can observe everything.

What do you have to pay attention to when choosing the right scratch tree?
For the selection of the right cat scratch tree we recommend to measure the base area of the pitch so that one will not be surprised later. Some of the scratch trees are already very expansive due to the different superstructures.
When choosing a scratch tree, you should also consider how big and how heavy your cat is or will be. A BKH hangover can weigh 10kg and Main Coon can do much more. Accordingly, the installation should be stable. Some products are explicitly indicated that they are suitable for large cats.
For the maximum duration of a scratch tree, it is particularly important that the areas that the cats use as sleeping and resting places can be removed for washing. As can be seen in the picture, with this scratch tree you can take out and wash the cover of the upper area and the cushion of the cave.
