About Our Products

Craftsmanship Rooted in Nature

We source our oak from the heart of the Devon countryside, supporting local farmers and landowners by utilising wood naturally felled by storms or old age.

Once gathered, our oak is seasoned for a minimum of two years to ensure ultimate strength, longevity, and natural beauty. This commitment to sustainability ensures you're not just pampering your cat, but also respecting the environment.

​Oak naturally moves and subtly shifts in form, which doesn’t affect your cat tree’s structure or strength. These features are part of the wood's unique story, reflecting its journey from forest to your home. Embrace the cracks, shakes, and splits—they add character and warmth, telling a tale of nature’s beauty.

​The Touch of Luxury:
Nestled atop our oak platforms are sumptuous sheepskin beds
 sourced locally in Devon 


These naturally magical wonders are cool in summer, warm in winter, and incredibly soft for cats.

The breathable fibres act like a natural thermostat, ensuring your feline friend's ultimate comfort. 

Choose from three natural colours Ivory, Rare Breed, or Brown , each uniquely beautiful and a natural testament to the sheep's individuality.

No two sheepskins are the same, colour and patterns will vary due to them being a natural product, if you are after a particular shade we are happy to send photo's of current stock.

​For the Modern Feline: If sheepskin isn't your cat's style, we offer an equally luxurious alternative - our super soft, washable puffball cat beds. These delightful cushions fit perfectly in our basket range, providing a cozy oasis for your furry friend to snooze in.

Pampering Your Cat's Throne: Easy Sheepskin Care Tips

​​Keeping your Sophisticated Scratch cat tree looking its best is as easy as 1-2-3! Here's how to ensure those luxurious sheepskin beds stay comfy and stylish for your feline friend

Brush it Off: Give the sheepskin a quick brushing regularly to keep it looking fluffy and fresh. Think of it like a spa day for your cat's favourite spot!

Spot Cleaning: For small spills or messes, no sweat! Just grab a damp cloth and gently dab the area. Easy peasy!


Deep Clean Dreams: For a more thorough clean, hand-wash the sheepskin bed in warm water with our exclusive Woolskin Wash (available separately). Remember, harsh detergents are a no-no!


Sun's Out, Don't Dry Out: Let your sheepskin air dry naturally, away from direct sunlight or heat sources. Think shade or a well-ventilated room.


A Gentle Stretch: As the sheepskin dries, gently stretch it to maintain its softness and suppleness. Think of it like giving it a big hug!


​Built to Last, Loved for Generations: With proper care, your sheepskin beds will stay as luxurious as the day you got them, providing your cat with a cozy haven for years to come.

Bonus Tip: Spoil your kitty rotten by occasionally fluffing the sheepskin with your hands for extra comfort!

​Unveiling the Natural Beauty Of Oak

Ancient oak tree


At Sophisticated Scratch, we celebrate the exquisite grain patterns of our sustainably sourced English oak. To enhance this natural elegance, we offer two distinct finishes.

  • High-Gloss Glam: Embrace a stunning, reflective surface with our layered oil and varnish finish. This dazzling choice complements any décor, adding a touch of modern luxury.

  • Subdued Sophistication: For a warm, matte appearance, opt for our natural oil finish. This timeless option allows the wood's natural beauty to shine through, creating an understated elegance.

Long-Lasting Appeal: Both finishes offer exceptional protection for your cat tree. While the high-gloss finish requires minimal maintenance, the natural oil may require reapplication every year to maintain its deep, lustrous sheen. It's a simple process that ensures your cat tree continues to be a stunning focal point for years to come.


Safe for Your Whole Family: We prioritize the health of your loved ones, including your furry friend. That's why we use Osmo 3011 Polyx Oil, a safe and dry finish that's perfect for children's toys, pets, and humans.


Beyond Beauty: Our natural oil finish isn't just about aesthetics. It allows the oak to breathe, adapting to environmental changes – just like your cat! This ensures your cat tree not only looks stunning but also remains strong and durable for generations to come.
