Tips to choose the right cat scratch post or cat tree from zooplus UK
When choosing a cat activity centre or UK cat tree, there are several important factors, such as: material, shape, size, and special qualities you might want for your cats.

  • Materials: Cat scratchers come in natural or synthetic. For vertical posts, we recommend thick natural sisal material
  • Stability: Look for a stable cat tree, especially if you have larger cats
  • Size: The ideal scratch post for cats should be tall enough to allow your cat to fully stretch
  • Quantity: Do you have more than one cat? It is a good idea to get two or more cat towers to avoid competition between cats, or opt for a larger cat activity centre with more than one den or platform
  • Shape: Does your cat enjoy climbing, laying or stretching? Choose the best cat scratch post shape and accessories to suit your cat’s preferences, for the ideal cat tree from zooplus UK
  • Outdoor cat tree vs indoor: If you only have limited outdoor space but your cat still likes to climb, you may like an outdoor cat tree

Other useful ideas:

  • Scratching problem: If your cat scratches your furniture, using citrus/menthol scents or oils can help keep them away from those surfaces
  • Attract your cat: You can rub catnip at the top of the scratching post for cats. The nepetalactone in catnip (a sort of mint) has been shown to produce a high in more than half of all cats that induces them to sniff, and sometimes lick or chew.
    Note: it has the opposite effect in kittens, repelling them.
  • Play time: Entice your feline to the cat activity centre by attaching a small object at the top of the cat scratcher with a little rope for your cat to play with!
