Creative Pet Furniture Review

If you have been reading along for awhile, you know how unhappy I was with my first attempt at buying  cat furniture for the Coons. I'm happy to say that round two was much more successful. On the advice of an acquaintance, I looked into Creative Pet Furniture, located in Oklahoma, and found exactly what I was looking for. I saved a bit from my paycheck for several  months, and just in time for their April birthday, the Coons got a cat center that should last practically forever.

I am very happy with all the features about this cat furniture. The most important thing is that it is actually designed to be big enough for Maine Coons! The unit I picked is the Cat Entertainment Center, Small Cattery, with Condo. The carousels on top of the center are 16 inches in diameter, rather than the 12 inch diameter you find on most pet store cat furniture. The free standing condo is also 16 inches in diameter. The condo is fully lined inside, unlike cheap cat furniture. The unit is modular in construction and was easy to assemble. As sections become worn, they can be individually replaced. I choose a custom color in light green, which is a nice change from the standard beige. It still only took about two and a half weeks to arrive. I got an email with a photo of the completed unit when it was on the way. This is a substantial piece of cat furniture, but it doesn't take up an overly large amount of floor space. It fit nicely into the space I had planned for it. Best of all, it is safe. The cats can easily climb to the top and down, and there is no way this sturdy unit is going to move. I'm very pleased.

Of course, it doesn't matter how much I like it, if the cats don't use it. Happily, they do like it. Cali likes to hide in the condo. Heath like to lord it up at the top and not share with his sister, which annoys me since I deliberately made sure there was room for multiple cats to share! Even our old, very fat cat has shown that she can climb up if she feels like it.

The price was amazing for the size and quality of the cat furniture. The only thing to be aware of is that shipping will add a substantial amount. Even with the price of shipping added in, I felt like this was a really good price for this fabulous cat furniture. If I was going to make one tiny change, it would be to have sisal on the front side of the cradles continuing up from the sisal posts. Cali is tall enough that that is where she usually scratches, and sisal would probably be sturdier than the carpet on that section. Of course, being Cali, she may scratch there because she prefers the carpet! Choose a color you love, you and your kitties will be enjoying your Creative Pet Furniture for many years to come!
