Do you ever worry about cats in small spaces? Perhaps you live in a studio, apartment or condo and worry that your cat does not have enough room to move. Here are some small home enhancements for our feline friends…Cats in small spacesAhhh – the life of a pampered pussycat…

Cats in small spaces: Studio, apartment, condo & small home enhancements for our feline friends

When they are awake, cats require space to move. If you live in a small house, apartment or studio or have a cat that is always indoors, then your cat needs to be able to utilise the space in various ways…

  • Across the floor
  • Jumping on shelves, units and window sills
  • Walking along shelves

As I always say, cats should be able to sit up high and look down on us. That is a cat’s perogative!

Itch Wall Shelf with BracketNo seriously, when cats sit high, they feel safe. It is also a great way for them to get to know a new pet in your home or a human visitor. From aloft they can observe the movements, listen to the sounds and get to know the scents that are emitted from the ‘intruder’. Always give your cat a high space.

Hopefully, if you have introduced a new feline friend, the two will soon be great mates and able to share their shelf…
