We are a small independent online 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 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.
Each cat tree is totally bespoke with its own reference number
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.
