Nice Cat Trees - Scratching posts in Australia?

Recommended Posts

Yes I am asking about cat trees! lol

My cats love theirs and are just trying to work out if it I should be shipping them to OZ?

I like nice looking cat trees.

No Faux fur!

 

We love Karlie, Vesper & Pet pals cat trees, but none of these brands are available in Australia.

I have searched online for cat trees Australia and all I get is Faux fur ones.

 

Has anyone in Australia found a more stylish option?

Thanks

To be honest you would need to ensure it was treated timber and also if there is cane on it there could be a problem with quarantine

Company shipping our dog to Oz stamp on their hand made timber crates that they are treated

good point! Thank you I never thought about that.

I am sure the vesper ones are just like an other piece of furniture, but maybe the woven baskets could cause an issue?

If your cats love them, ship them for sure! Any nicer options available here would probably be very pricy. My little ratbag is happiest with cardboard boxes and climbing bookcases so we haven't bought him a cat tree!


She'll be right!

Thinking they could as you can't be sure or origin or treatment I always tell the tale of us having a wand all of 4 inches long taken off Santa and they want around $ 100 to fumigate !

Check with the shipping company. Maybe they will know if they are okay to ship.

 

I've only seen the cheaper type here, although I've not looked for anything more fancy. My four are hooligans so I get the cheaper ones, so they can trash them and then I can replace it. The cat tree is out of the way in the garage though (they have their own area there with comfy hides holes and things to climb on and play with) so I don't have to look at it!

A quick google shows you can buy these here, so unless yours are new in boxes i am not sure id risk quarantine as fumigation costs a fortune if they are not happy with them.

Those ones are lovely. All the ones I've seen here have been faux fur too I'm afraid.


Has two beautiful Aussie little girls :-)

To be honest I've seen some gorgeous ones in America over the years but never seen anything that has the wow factor here or when I was in the UK

You won't find one that nice sadly. I'm not sure where in Aus you are moving but in Brisbane you can buy ones with carpet to scratch from the big pet shops but they are quite expensive & not always the most sturdy. Otherwise there is someone in Brisbane who makes them by hand to your design (if they can) again is quite expensive though.

Thanks Pom Queen that is a good find! I like it although a little small.

That website even has the vesper ones! But they are more expensive in OZ. As can be expected.

I did find a few other good ones.

My acquaintances bought here recently. The owners and the cat were all happy! 🙂 So can be recommended to all safely! 😊
