Cat climbing posts
Big and strong
Made in New Zealand
Wide range of models
Developed for our own cats and kittens (see video)
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING COVID-19
As of 29 August 2021, we have very limited supplies of materials for making cat posts. We will continue to build, as much as we can, but will probably not be able to complete your post until after Auckland returns to Level 2 or lower.
Why we decided to build cat climbing posts
Our posts, by contrast, are extremely simple and big – ranging from 1.2m to 1.8m tall. In our cattery we have seen the tiniest kittens bound straight to the top of tall posts – they love being able to climb!
We’ve bought many climbing/scratching posts over the years. In our experience, they may look nice in the store, but the cats often have them shredded in a matter of months.
We decided to design and build scratching posts for our cattery. When our customers saw ours, they wanted them too, so now we offer a variety of models, shown below.
They may be small compared to our other models, but they’re bigger than most commonly available scratching posts
Recommended for cats up to 5kg

Super strong, for really big cats, such as Maine Coons, up to 10kg
Base: 700 x 610
Platforms: 550 x 340 x 18
Low centre of gravity for extra stability
Not fancy, but built to take abuse!
All our posts are solid timber, with MDF bases (the weight adds to stability) and lightweight plywood platforms. Posts are covered with carpet treated with catnip to entice your cat.
We paint the bases before adding carpet so they cannot absorb liquids spilled onto them or onto the floor.
Cats love our climbing posts
“The scratching post we bought from you is absolutely fabulous. Saffy hasn’t even looked at our furniture since the post arrived, and loves to sleep and play on it. She supervises our dinner time from there most nights.”
– Rebecca, owner of a Super 1 climbing post
All our posts have a one-year warranty against defects in materials and construction. After a few years of constant use, your climbing post may start to look a bit ragged, at which time we are happy to quote on replacing the carpet and manila rope. The rest of the post should last indefinitely.
