I’m always looking for a fresh approach to cat furniture design, and this scratching/climbing system from German company Profeline is truly inspirational. The line integrates some very innovative features and uses natural materials for a simple, clean look.
Profeline makes free standing cat trees/scratchers, plus they have a line of wall mounted trees that I think are just brilliant. The sisal wrapped columns come in different lengths that can be combined in any configuration with hammocks, shelves, and hideaways to create a custom tree for your cat. That also means that you can easily replace single segments of the post as they become worn, instead of throwing the whole thing out. That is game changing!
They also make several wall-mounted scratching products that can be configured in endless ways.
In addition to the wall-mounted and free-standing trees, there are some larger cat trees that are anchored between the floor and ceiling with a tension pole. Other designs rest on the floor, but are anchored to the wall at the top. Both very smart solutions for creating a stable cat tree that takes advantage of the full floor-to-ceiling space, without requiring a gigantic base.
Profeline also offers a full range of cat walks, all featuring the same simple, clean design, plus several models of wall-mounted perches with beautifully upholstered pads on top.
Sadly, for those of us here in the US, Profeline is only shipping to the EU at the moment, but I’ll be sure to let you know if that changes. In the meantime, visit the Profeline website to do some window shopping.
