The MIA Cat House – the Stylish Alternative to the Cardboard Box

my-kotty-mia1

The multifunctional MIA, by Polish designers, myKotty, is a stylish variation on every cat’s favourite, the traditional cardboard box.  It doubles up as a den and a perch, and, when combined with the MIA Cardboard Mat (which fits neatly inside), becomes a scratcher too.

mia-cardboard-scratch-matThe MIA is fully reversible, and can be easily slotted together with either the white or natural side facing out – both would look great in any modern interior.

The MIA scores top feline design marks for its two entrance/exit holes –  an alternative escape route is an important feature in multi-cat households, where the dastardly practice of ambushing can be an issue.

The MIA is available in the UK from Specially 4 Cats for £18.95.  Measurements: H48cm x D58cm x W57cm.  Specially 4 Cats also stock the MIA Cardboard Scratch Mat, available for £3.95.

Affordable Modern Cat Tree Made from Natural Materials

Now here’s something you don’t see every day: a medium-large cat tree which is easy on the human eye, has plenty to offer our finicky feline friends, and which won’t break the bank.

The Scorched Wood Cat Tree from ZooplusUK is made from top-quality natural materials.  The sturdy wooden base and posts ensure the tree is stable enough to remain standing during energetic play sessions, and the raised water hyacinth baskets and den provide opportunities for hiding and spying (both of which feature in the top ten of All Time Favourite Cat Hobbies).  Sections of the posts are covered in 10mm sisal rope, which will withstand a lot of scratching – good news for your cat and your armchairs/sofas/wallpaper etc.  I also like the way the sisal is positioned at different heights to suit various sizes of cat and accommodate different preferences for scratching positions.

Purrrfect Pieces Wall-mounted Scratch Posts

purrrfect pieces wall mounted scratch post - available in the UK

I think wall-mounted scratch posts are brilliant.  Cats love to combine a good scratch with a good stretch, and also enjoy shinning up vertical surfaces; and a wall-mounted scratch post will provide your cat with somewhere other than your soft furnishings to express these natural behaviours.  Plus, these scratch posts don’t require a large, heavy base for stability so won’t waste valuable floor space.

The trouble is, I’ve never been able to find a decent wall-mounted scratch post available in the UK…  Until now!  So, without further ado, I’m very pleased to be able to introduce you to Purrrfect Pieces and their range of WALL MOUNTED SCRATCH POSTS!

Purrrfect Pieces is the brain child of Rebecca Alexander, who makes each scratch post herself by hand, using high-quality materials.  Naturally, Rebecca’s rescue cat, Ollie, is a big fan of her scratch posts and is more than happy to volunteer his services as the Purrrfect Pieces in-house model.

The sisal-wrapped scratch posts are available in modular 1 metre sections, which can be configured to suit your cat’s requirements.  Ollie favours a 2 metre combo; but, if your cat loves to climb, you needn’t stop at 2 metres – the sky’s your limit (oh, all right – the ceiling’s your limit).

Purrrfect Pieces posts are approximately 12cm in diameter, and are covered in 6mm sisal rope with a sisal rope cap at either end.  Each 1 metre section is fixed to the wall using two upvc brackets.  All materials used are EU certified.

The Purrfect Pieces 1 Metre Wall Mounted Scratch Post is available for £54.99, and the 2 Metre Wall Mounted Scratch Post for £109.00.  Prices include UK delivery.  Posts are made to order, so please allow up to 2 weeks for delivery.

Rebecca also makes an outdoor version of her post (with a waterproof inner tube), and a slimline version for people who don’t have room for the standard post – you can contact her via the Purrrfect Pieces website for details.

The Iti – Cardboard Scratch/Lounge Combo for Cats Who Appreciate Modern Art

The Iti (pronounced “itty”) is a stylish scratcher/lounger combo made from every cat’s favourite material: cardboard.  The Iti features a modern, abstract print of birds in flight – which, presumably, cats will also thoroughly approve of.

The robust, reversible Iti is by US company, KittyPod (home of the brilliant range of modern cat products designed by Elizabeth Paige Smith), but is available for delivery to the UK via the fabulous Belgian pet boutique, Purrfect Design, priced at €49.90 (approx £40.00 at current exchange rates).
