Towers are not only reserved for Rapunzel. Cats love to clamber up these towers, and they bring with them great health benefits as well as charm to your living area. They encourage cats to climb and use their muscles. Some even come with inbuilt scratchers, hammocks and great places to lounge around.
The downside: Cat towers can be costly, and your cats cat tear them apart! That’s why a low budget cat tower should be a consideration.
As with any cat tree, it is important that you make sure that it is stable and that it can support the weight of bigger kitties. The low budget cat trees below provide this at an affordable price.
