Catio Shelving

Explore Catio Shelving

It is a cat’s instinct to climb. Most cats adore to be up high, whether they are dangling from tree’s branches or just hanging from a high perch. The Catio can be a place that mimics nature with built in shelving, perches or tunnels that allow the cat to feel like they are really outdoors. Likewise, the cat will likely feel more comfortable and secure in a place with ledges and perches where they can have a panoramic view of everything around them. 

At Cat Topia, we have several shelving options. We offer our basic shelving included in each Catio. We also have more elaborate options like cat bridges, connected shelving, or grass turf shelving. We also have special catio stairs that can help if your cat struggles with a disability. Keep reading below to find out more about your options to customize the Catio for your cat’s or cats’ needs.
