Cat Claws M.A.X. Big Cat Scratcher

This thing is so frigging awesome I only wish I had the room in the apartment to get one. I'll have to settle for one of the smaller ones, like
Bumpy Ramp
M.A.X. Scratch 'N Snooze Scratcher

They have a large assortment here;

Feline Furniture Cat Activity Starter Kit

I don't know that I would actually buy this for my cats, maybe if I had enough money.

However it seems to me that this would be fairly easy to make from pvc pipes and the interlocking joints that you can get at a hardware supply. Get some ripstop nylon and sew it up for the hammocks and those cube enclosures are sold at other places, or I could try my hand at one, but it's all held together with velcro straps so, why not?


"...started to answer the need for a safe place for blind cats that were deemed unadoptable by regular shelters"

They have a real cute video of two blind kittens playing. Simply adorable!

Modular Cat Cages and Cat Enclosure Systems

Lovely idea! I used the smaller 14x14 inch wire storage cubes to make a large kitten enclosure once, and that worked very well. If I ever get into my own home I will seriously consider this option to make am outside playground for my buddies.

Cat Gym

Despite the maker saying this cat tree gym is not for adult cats I think that my nut-butts* would have fun with this one.

*short for peanutbutter - I have no further explanation :-)

Giant High-Sided Cat Litter Pan

This pan is 23.4"L x 18.25"W x 11"H. Works great for cats who stand as they go, or multiple-cat households.
