Cat Furniture Safety And Construction Facts:
IMPORTANT READING: All Cat Furniture, Climbers, Condos, Trees, & Scratching Posts Are NOT Created Equal!
Spoil My Kitty™ understands that purchasing cat furniture can be overwhelming when considering all the choices and requirements you may have. We also understand that there are several types of feline fanciers with varying needs and wants. Keeping this in mind, we enjoy offering the most demanding customers our premium cat furniture series. We believe this is the best cat furniture money can buy!
PLEASE DO NOT: Purchase cat scratching posts and cat furniture that are covered with regular household carpet! Why? Because you cannot expect your kitty to distinguish the difference between the carpet they are allowed to attack, and the carpet on your floors you want them to leave alone. Most carpets are constructed in a pile or cut loop, and your cat's claws can easily become snagged and damaged. This unraveling often creates an even more dangerous, and potentially fatal condition! Please read and understand the following paragraphs closely.
Very Important: Have you ever noticed how regular household carpet unravels when torn or shredded, resulting in long nylon threads being exposed? What can happen if your beloved feline friend decides to chew and swallow those long threads of nylon? Danger: Movement of the small intestine can cause 'bunching up' on these threads much like an accordion. With continued waves of movement across this area, the thread becomes tighter and cuts through the wall of the intestine, often in several places. This results in peritonitis (inflammation of the thin lining of the abdominal cavity) where the intestinal contents leak into the abdomen.
Cats with linear foreign bodies almost always need surgery to take out the string. This surgery is often seen as an emergency. The prognosis for recovery from surgery depends on what the cat ate, how long ago, and whether or not the intestines are damaged. Cats who have eaten strings or ribbon once are likely to do it again. If you know your cat likes to eat these kinds of things, you should keep an extra close eye on them.
Moreover, many carpets still contain formaldehyde which is very poisonous to all living creatures! Staples, did we mention the staples used to secure the carpet? Cutting corners is not worth the risk, is it?
Since covering cat furniture with regular household carpeting and metal staples never made good sense, why do so many other manufacturers still do it? In A Nutshell: It's Easy To Come By And Very Profitable For Them!
Don't Panic: We're not suggesting you run and throw out all your carpeted cat furniture in the garbage immediately. We want you to be well informed, on the lookout for potential problems should they arise, while understanding there is a better, safer alternative available.
PLEASE DO: Shop wisely even if you don't purchase cat furniture from SpoilMyKitty.Com!
Over the past several years, the market has been flooded with cheap import and fly by night manufacturers. The import cat furniture may seem like a great opportunity to buy cheaper, but you get what you pay for. Cheaper imported furniture simply cannot hold up to constant abuse from your kitty the way our furniture does. This isn't a problem if you enjoy buying a new unit every 2-3 years, (But Who really does that?). In many cases our standard base alone weighs more than an entire imported Chinese unit!
SpoilMyKitty.Com cares about our customers and their animals much more than a quick profit. Our cat furniture is constructed with nontoxic adhesives, 100% naturally dried sisal, welded metal framed sleepers and hammocks, industrial grade cabinet and gaming machine 2" MDF composites, top quality fabrics that will not unravel, and NO dangerous Staples!
