We are a small independent business based in rural Devon and have been makers of bespoke solid oak cat trees and cat scratchers since 2017.

Having searched and failed to find any feline furniture we would want in our own home that would not be an eyesore but look elegant and well crafted, we resorted to making them ourselves.  We are now proud makers and producers of cat trees and cat scratchers and  that are sustainable ~ original ~ durable ~ authentic and beautiful.  

We source our oak locally by foraging and also buying from and supporting local farmers, who have fallen oaks on their land through storm damage or old age.  The oak is then seasoned for two years before the sculpting process can begin to transform a humble length of timber into a piece of original design.  

To enhance the natural grain, knots and character of the wood, a lengthy process of applying only natural oils and beeswax takes place before finally the addition of the sheepskin and sisal.

Our cat trees and scratchers are made with style and longevity in mind. They will create that special place for your pet whilst doubling up as an addition to your interior that you will be proud to own. 



Our Lazing Trees are truly sophisticated!


All Lazing Trees are made from natural formations of oak with no bolted on limbs they arrive assembled ready for use. 


Our cat trees range from 2ft - 6ft (60cm - 182cm) in height, with one or more snooze areas for your cat to sleep and languish in pure comfort.  Cat paradise.

The lazing areas are supplied either with solid oak platforms or handmade wicker baskets, both adorned with soft authentic sheepskin in a natural colour of your choice.

Your cat tree comes with a 2 year guarantee, but there is no reason if treated correctly why your cat tree would not last decades like any other quality English oak furniture.

Sophisticated Scratch has 4 collections of cat tree each title dictating the number of sleep areas for kitties but every cat tree is also a totally bespoke piece with its own unique reference number

LYNX  - 1 Sleep area

SERVAL - 2 Sleep areas

CARACAL  - 3 Sleep areas     

ONCILLA - 4 Sleep areas   





Our cat scratchers are available in various sizes and come fully assembled and ready to use with a 2 year guarantee.

Please check the size of each individual product as the following is a guide giving minimal measurements and the product may be bigger.

We use a minimal thickness of 10mm - 12mm natural sisal on all our cat scratchers making them last up to 5 times longer than high street options, we also offer a re-sisal replacement service when needed.

Cats love scratching on sisal, they are naturally drawn to it and a cat scratcher is the perfect solution to saving your soft furnishings from being used as kitties work-out station.

The robust structure of English oak and the design of a Sophisticated Scratch cat tree is such that it should last a cats entire lifetime and beyond with the correct use. 

Did you know one cat will use a scratching tree up to 20 times a day, so the sisal will need replacement at some point in the future especially if you have multiple cats.

Sophisticated Scratch cat scratchers are natural, sustainable and reusable.

The sisal on our cat scratchers is of the highest quality and extremely tough we use a minimal 10mm thickness that will last one cat up to 18 months before sisal replacement is needed.
Sophisticated Scratch conveniently offer a re-sisal service so you never have to buy a whole new cat scratcher again, simply replace the sisal and keep the original tree our prices start from only £29 + postage.
