(4 out of 5)
The Refined Feline Cloud Shelf keeps cats active without damaging furniture.
June 2, 2011 4:02 pm | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.
If your cat is a climber (and what feline isn’t?), every piece of furniture, every windowsill, and even the tops of doors can be potential jumping and landing points. Which can be great exercise for your cat… but not such a great workout for your belongings. The folks at The Refined Feline, a company featuring unique pieces of cat furniture with modern design elements, have come up with a solution – the Cloud Shelf for Cats.
The wall-mounted Cloud Shelf consists of two large platforms (measuring about 20” by 10”), that are joined together by a plate that attaches to your wall – creating a sort of staircase to nowhere along your wall.
And the shelves are available in both right-facing and left-facing models, depending on the space that you have designated in your home for feline calisthenics.
Cats will appreciate the pads on the Refined Feline Cloud Shelf, made from a cozy, sheepskin-like fabric – ideal for lounging, as well as for getting some traction when making those leaps to and from the ground.
The pads are sold separately if you need a second set after your cats enjoy the possibilities of these shelves. And both the pads and their replacements feature magnetic bottoms, making them easy to swap out once your cat has scratched and jumped his way through the first set.
At a retail price of $99.99 during some online sales, you may find that the Refined Feline Cloud Shelf isn’t the least expensive way to keep your cat active and satisfied. But compared to the cost of replacing your sofa upholstery every few months, you might find that these well-made, comfortable shelves are a value after all.
Pros: Easy setup; attractive décor; cats appreciate the lounging space.
Cons: Can be expensive, so keep an eye out for online sales.
