We are a small independent business based in rural Devon and have been makers of bespoke solid oak cat trees and 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 scratchers and trees 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 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 range from 2ft - 6ft (60cm - 182cm) in height, with one or more snoozing 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 sheepskin in a natural colour of your choice.
All our cat trees come fully assembled ready to use and with a 2 year guarantee.

Our 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 Scratchers and offer a re-sisal replacement service if required.
Cats love scratching on sisal, they are naturally drawn to it and a Scratcher is the perfect solution to rescuing your soft furnishings from being used as a 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 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 scratcher again, simply replace the sisal and our prices start from only £29 + postage.

All our sheepskins are sourced from Lambland in Ilfracombe, Devon. Sheepskin is cool in the summer and warm in the winter and great for pets of any age, as the fibres breathe to act like a natural thermostat. These beautiful pure wool sheepskins offer both comfort and warmth and are washable with our Woolskin wash:
• Rare Breed Light

Our wicker cat beds are handmade in the heart of the Somerset Levels by the Coate family who have been growing withies on the moors since 1819 and making baskets and willow charcoal for almost 50 years.
We hand make Sophisticated Rat as an association toy from natural sheepskin and sisal. This will help your pet understand this is their furniture to play and sleep on. Ratty is the most natural cat toy you will find and only available from Sophisticated Scratch.
