Cats turn out to the most popular pets in most homes around the world. Although we live with them, they live differently. Unlike humans who live horizontal lives, cats live both horizontal and vertical lives. Cats make full use of the environment. They particularly make use of vertical environment for safety, fun and comfort. This is where cat shelves become important.
These shelves are simply wall systems that have become part of cat furniture. They are wall mounted specifically for use by cats and turn out to be useful in homes with small rooms. The shelves provide for several benefits.
Having a cat and a dog as pets can be a big challenge especially if the dog dislikes your cat. It can indeed be a challenge if it turns out that your cat is timid. Mounting shelves on the wall provides your cat with an alternative place where it will feel safe from the dog.
Mounting shelves on the wall provides your cat with added territory since it is not restricted to horizontal way of life. Your cat will use the shelves as its “home” where it can retreat to when it needs to be alone or when it needs to have a nap considering that it is a nocturnal creature.
It turns out that mounting cat shelves on your walls is not only beneficial to your cat; it is also beneficial to you. You can easily decorate your walls by mounting shelves made of materials and in colors that decorate your walls and by extension your room.
It is very important to consider on which wall or walls to mount the shelves. It is highly recommended that you mount the shelves on your lounge or living room wall near windows to provide your cat with a good opportunity to sample outdoor activities.
