16 Best Cat Trees And Scratchers To Get On Amazon

Every cat needs a cat tree. That's one of the essentials of cat ownerships. Of course, you can choose not to get one, but that just means that your chairs and your carpets and your couches will become the scratch posts... and we don't want that. Of course, you can make your own cat tree if you're a talented builder or you can try a DIY castle made entirely of cardboard

In reality though, the easiest thing to do is just go on Amazon and get one of the best cat trees on there. Well, you're in luck, because we, the editors, have made a list of the best cat trees on Amazon - from the functional and affordable to the insane ones you don't even want to know the cost of but would love to look at. That is, of course, if your cat won't choose the box instead of the cat tree in the first place.

We've all heard the tale-old story of a cat getting stuck in a tree and heroic and amazing firefighters coming to rescue the little guy. When that happens, we are normally so nervous, trying in every way that we can to help the cat down, no matter how long it takes. But what happens if the cat has chosen to go up there on purpose, just to nap and have a good time high up in the tree? You think it might need rescuing, but sometimes, they do not. 

Check out the newest ICanHasCheezburger original animation, in which this ferocious little kitten doesn't need rescuing from anyone. It's an anmation that encompasses being a cat in the most accurate way ever.

Big Cats With House Cat Energy Chilling On Trees

We must warn you - the animal that you're about to see is the most elusive animal you've ever gazed upon. It is the big cat spider. It is only seen once every blue moon. Spread out across the tress in all its glory, limbs loose and perfectly camaflauged. These spider leopards and jaguars are animals of grace, and they are lethal... in their cuteness. 

Okay, fine, they're not real spiders. That's just our excuse to make the cutest collection of big cats hanging out in trees. Because wanting to climb up is not just a house cat thing. Then again, all big cats have a little house cat energy in them, and that only makes us love them more.

Cats vs Christmas Trees: The Endless Struggle Continues

'Tis the season! Thanksgiving is over and the holiday season is well on its way! We're seeing people put up their trees everywhere! And those who have cats know more than anyone how this next month will be.

The age-old classic, cats vs Christmas trees. It's a yearly segment that we never get tired of because there's always new and hilarious content out there of cats destroying or plotting to destroy that highly decorated tree. Will the humans win this year and have their tree up all season? Or are they simply doomed and their cats shall be the ones to decide their faith?

Sweet darlings cats, if there's one universal truth is that they have this need to be within that tree, they have a desire to attack those ornament, to take down the tree entirely. They can't help it, they are programmed to destroy that tree. Who was it that programmed that function is not known to us, but we have reason to believe it was a higher power.... ceiling cat, perhaps?

New Home Design Trend: Indoor Cat Towers Made From Real Trees

Most indoor "cat trees" are actually multi-level scratchers that don't really look like real trees and therefore, don't provide the lifelike outdoor experience for us, as cat owners, as well as for our furry friends.    

Shelley and Joe DelRocco, an animal lover couple from Florida, decided to step in and create custom made treehouses from real trees and silk leaves. The new pieces are aesthetically-pleasing house plants you will never have to water but will upgrade the total look of your house and provide your kitty with the outdoor feel while being indoor.  
The DelRoccos made their first pet treehouse for their own cats in 2008. Since then, their home business soon grew, and today they sell their designs to cat owners all over the U.S. and beyond: "Our real cat tree with leaves is designed to focus on your cat's true nature, bringing out your cat's primal instincts," the DelRoccos told My modern Met. "This method helps reduce captive stress and encourages your cat to stretch and scratch on the gnarled branches, bark, lichen and all." Check out their beautiful designs on etsy.

Catipilla Is The Innovative New Way To Build a Cat Tree That Blends Seamlessly Into Your Home

Catipilla is a new innovative cat product you should definitely learn more about. 

It was inspired by Smudge, an 18-year-old house cat who was struggling to clamber into a ground floor window. Her owners, The Sutton Family, sort out a creative solution to help her get in and out home after refusing to drill holes in their door for a cat flap. From wood and nails, the first Catipilla concept was born. The wooden platforms have since evolved into a durable, wall-mounted structure that encou- rages cats to climb naturally while saving space in the home. The Catipilla Pro and the Catipilla Mini feature high-quality, UK-manufactured pillars and adjustable tread plates that can be tailo- red to every cat's needs. Catipilla's range also includes an adjustable high plate and cat ham- mock, perfect for bird watching and catnaps. Catipilla can be used both indoors and outdoors and its array of health benefits make it the perfect fit for every cat.

Why Are There Goats In The Trees Of Morocco?

The Argania tree is not the most aesthetically pleasing plant in the world with a rough, thorny bark and gangly, crooked branches. But these Moroccan trees still tend to attract admirers, thanks in large part to the hordes of goats that can usually be found perching in them.
