As this list is focused exclusively on finding the perfect cat tree for large cats, the height range will be between 40 inches all the way up to 70 inches. The height of a large cat tree will of course depend on the aspects it includes, like resting platforms, sleep spaces, and play areas for your large cat to enjoy. A cat tree for a large cat should never be smaller than 40 inches tall, as your cat may feel cramped in a tree lower than this. It's also important that your chosen cat tree has enough room for your cat to stretch out wherever they choose to catnap, so you should ensure any sleeping space is at least 18 inches wide.
As for material, most cat trees for large cats combine materials for a sturdier finish. A wide range of trees are crafted from wood and rope to create something for your cat/s to grip onto as they navigate their new tree. On top of these base materials is usually a softer layer for comfort. This is often carpet, once again so cats can grip onto it easily, or faux fur so you can ensure your cat's paws won't get damaged. It's important to find a tree that has a solid base but is still sufficiently covered with a softer material for comfort.
Though cat trees are practical items, you can still find one that fits in with your current style. In terms of colors, a neutral finish like beige or even dark gray will be far easier to blend in with current furniture, especially if you plan to place your tree in a living room. On the other hand, choosing a bold color could brighten up a space. The latter would also be a good option if you have a dedicated cat space with no set décor scheme. Remember though that cats can only see a very limited number of colors, including possibly blue and gray, so any color you do go for is more for your benefit than your cat's.
Number of Cats:
The bigger the tree, the more cats it will fit. Finding a cat tree to fit more than one cat will be easier if you own a large cat and a small cat, but finding one to fit everyone is possible, even if you have two large cats. We recommend choosing a tree that has at least two platforms or spaces for sleeping. If you only own one large cat, having more than one sleeping option will keep your cat stimulated, as they can jump from platform to platform. However, if you have more than one cat, two platforms ensure that both will be able to rest comfortably in their own area.
Cat trees for large cats generally contain an area for sleeping, an area for resting, and several poles for your cats to climb up and down. Nevertheless, some do have extras that will keep your cat extra happy. This could be in the form of various shapes like circles and squares that your cat can explore, or even something like an included ladder your cat can use to climb up and down. Much like how cats love to sit in cardboard boxes, your cat will like being able to have a set enclosed space for resting but will also enjoy having lots of things to play with.
