So, why choose a cat tower that has no carpet? There are many reasons to choose a no-carpet cat tower, as well as why sisal is a better option.
The main reason that carpet is not the best option for cat furniture is that it’s not as easy to clean. Carpet traps and locks in dirt and germs and is a pain to keep clean, making it not safe or sanitary for your furry friend. This should make it unacceptable to board your cat at a place where they have carpeted cat towers. The carpet on your cat furniture and the carpet on your floor may not be as distinguishable to your cat, either. Teaching them which one they are allowed to scratch on and play with may be more difficult than it would be if there was a sisal section of your cat tower.
Sisal is a great option for cat furniture because it is well known for its strength and longevity. It is also known for being irresistible to cats. This is great for your carpet, because your cat will choose to scratch the sisal on your cat tower rather than the carpet on your floor. A not so well known fact about sisal is that premium grade sisal stays tight even when wet, which keeps it tightly woven around whatever it’s on. Non-premium sisal is more likely to become loose and detach making it not last as long. This is one way to tell a well-constructed cat tower from a lower end one.
Here at PurrfecTrends Handcrafted Cat Towers, we use only the hand selected cabinet grade plywood and premium sisal inserts to create our luxury cat towers. You can rely on our designer cat furniture to last longer and withstand more playtime than other, lower-quality cat furniture.
