Cat Haven Cat Trees


This post contains affiliate links*

Cat trees are a must have for indoor cats. They satsify cats’ need to climb, they provide a great view of the outdoors if placed near a window, and they offer an outlet for cats’ natural instinct to scratch. Cat trees are especially important in multicat households, giving cats opportunities to share territory on more than one level, without bumping into each other and creating possible altercations.

I really like cat trees that look like “real” trees. In addition to satisfying all the requirements above, they also mimic a relatively realistic outdoor experience for indoor cats – and they look beautiful in your home, no matter what your decorating style is. In my case, they also satisfy the need for some greenery – I gave up on real plants when my first cat Feebee decimated a ficus tree.

I saw the Cat Haven line of cat trees at Global Pet Expo in March, and while the plastic trunks look a little cheap, for the price point, the leaves looked like some of the higher end fake plants, and the trees seem to be reasonably well-made.


These trees are made from pressed wood and feature artificial turf carpet at the base. They come in three sizes, with either a round or square base. They are rated for cats up to 32 pounds in weight, but given my experience with less expensive cat trees in general, I would be cautious if you have larger cats, and would probably consider anchoring the tree to a wall to prevent it from toppling.


The small tree is available from Amazon for $141.02 with free shipping for Prime members.


The medium tree is available from Amazon for $134.99 with free shipping for Prime members (not sure why the medium is less expensive than the small!)


The large tree is available from Amazon for $159.99 with free shipping for Prime members.

A word of caution: some cats will eat artificial leaves, and if your cat is one of them, these are obviously not a good choice!

How Cats Communicate Through Marking Behavior


Do you speak cat? Even though cats express themselves vocally, they primarily use their face, tail and body to communicate with each other and with the humans in their lives. Another important way cats communicate is through marking behavior. Understanding this behavior will not only enhance the relationship between you and your cat, it will also help you prevent potential problems in your household, especially when you have multiple cats.

Conscious Cat Sunday: Wisdom from Charlie Chaplin


I recently came across a piece of writing attributed to Charlie Chaplin, titled “As I Began to Love Myself.” Chaplin supposedly wrote this on his 70th birthday, although nobody seems to know for sure whether he actually did. It resonated deeply with me, but it also struck me how much of this wisdom is modeled for us by our cats. Maybe it’s an occupational hazard of being a cat writer that everything eventually comes back to cats for me – but I just  had to share it with you. Continue reading…

Mews and Nips: Adventure Cat Takes on Big Sky Country


There’s something fascinating to me about seeing cats do things that I couldn’t imagine Allegra and Ruby do in my wildest dreams. These “adventure cats” hike, camp and sail with their humans, and seem to be having a great time doing so. Otie, a 3-year-old Maine Coon from Montana joins his humans on all their adventures, whether they’re exploring by car, by boat or even by plane. Visit to see gorgeous photos of Otie exploring his home state.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: Continue reading…

Allegra and Ruby’s Birthday Surprise


Hi everyone, it’s Allegra and Ruby! Guess what! Today is Mom’s birthday. Even though Mom had one of her very serious posts about some very serious topic scheduled for today, we decided that on her birthday, she needs to have fun and not write about serious stuff. So we rescheduled her serious post for next week, and instead, we’re surprising her for her birthday! Continue reading…

When it comes to scratching posts, bigger is usually better. Another important characteristic for a scratching post is that it’s sturdy so it doesn’t wobble or topple when cats use it. The Molly and Friends Bed on Top Scratching Post meets both requirements, and it has been a favorite piece in our house for the past ten years. Continue reading…

Happy Mother’s Day


Even though my mother passed away 23 years ago, Mother’s Day remains bittersweet for me. I still feel a pang each year when Mother’s Day cards start appearing in stores. I tend to avoid going to restaurants on Mother’s Day – seeing others take their moms out to lunch or dinner is hard when I would give anything to have one more chance to take my mom out for a meal. Continue reading…
