Hicat® Overview

For cats climbing is both instinctive & an intrinsic part of their physiology - we believe giving indoor cats the opportunity to climb is a fundamental part of their well being, like walking your dog. 

 

Why Hicat®

Climbing comes naturally to cats & should be part of their daily exercise routine - it keeps them active & in good shape plus helps burn off any surplus energy whilst playing.

Hicat® cat climbers satisfy this instinct to climb so if you're not lucky enough to live in an environment that has opportunities for exercise & climbing, a Hicat® is a superb substitute for a cat's natural habitat. 

Our designs are centred around indoor cat climbing structures that are safe, simple & that maximise vertical surface area whilst remaining compact in terms of footprint - they provide a unique all limbs climbing experience, as opposed to just back limb jumping from perch to perch, that's focused around energetic play, secluded relaxation & providing lots of entertainment for both you & your cat.
 

Environmental Behaviour

The scale of our units, surface area & tree-like climbing experience are exercise related aspects of our Hicat® design but cat behaviourists will also tell you how important vertical territory is, especially in a multi-cat household - having perching, sleeping & playing opportunities at different levels not only broadens your cat's environment vertically but also fulfils its important & often overlooked territorial needs.

Our designs include units that have access holes & perches offering built-in cat-friendly multi-levels & can be set up next to furniture & room features to exploit untapped vertical territory helping to maximise your cat's indoor landscape & give it a whole new world to explore.
 

Value For Money

We believe our products are unique when it comes to climbing & given the materials & workmanship that go in to them we also think they are excellent value for money considering their size & that they are made-to-measure.

Other cat furniture & trees simply don't offer the climbing opportunities that our products have built in to them - with 5-6m² of climbable surface area our standard height floor-to-ceiling tube is unmatched when compared to other cat furniture products on the market.

We know there is a massive range of budget & appreciation of what is spent on cats by their owners but we can't stress enough how important we think it is to give your cat the opportunity to climb indoors so if you're not ready to make a purchase then you may want to consider making a DIY version of our HIcat® for your cat to climb.
 

About Our Products

Hicat® products are made-to-order & available in a variety of floor-to-ceiling posts & tubes plus free-standing podiums to give your cat an indoor climbing experience like no other - our VideoThumbs-Ups sections say it all.

The use of high quality materials & workmanship means that your Hicat® will be a very special addition to your home - our Gallery is a good place to start if you need some inspiration.

We wrap our climbers in coir boucle carpet, which has a looped weave so that your cat is sure footed & confident when climbing - the internal shelves & surfaces are finished in a luxurious twist pile carpet to give your cat a soft & cosy space to curl up.
