All of us at some point in our lives must have had a cat and for those who did not, this would be a good start to get one. Designers have come up with cat houses that greatly reduce the risk of cat spoiling your furniture. These generally tend to go across your walls and make it either to your bedroom or hall. Sometimes, it runs right across your whole house. You can design your own cat house and add the colors you want. Cat houses combine beauty and function with quality that lasts. These can go anywhere from two to eight feet tall and you can add additions with bark-covered tree limbs or anything of your choice, and come with special sculpted carpets that give it long durability. Designers have come up with other alternatives that can be included such as, cat gyms, kitty gyms, kitty towers, cat tree furniture and cat towers with extra cat toys and sisal cat scratching posts, so that your felines do not continue to scratch that expensive sofa, bookcase, or that carpet of yours. Cat houses are a good way to keep your cats away from things that are not to be touched (by the cat).
