According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA) 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey, out of the 500 cat owners surveyed, 70 percent of them said they plan to purchase some cat care item in the next 12 months. This provides retailers with the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and educate cat owners on the benefits that cat trees and similar products provide.
Cat trees and furniture specifically cater to the needs of the feline. These products come in an unlimited variety of sizes, shapes and materials. They also offer an array of different features, such as scratching posts, areas for sleeping and toys. This encourages cats to climb, scratch, sleep and play while also redirecting unwanted clawing if they are scratching away at an owner’s furniture or other possessions.
Once retailers know what their customers cats need, it’s important to walk them through all the available features and guide them to the cat tree, condo or furniture that would best work for the pets’ activity level and personality.
These cat items can also cater to the needs of the owner. While the size of the cat house or tree will rely on the number of cats, their size and the amount of space in the cat owner’s home, cat furniture gives cats a sense of ownership, often inspiring them to keep them off the owner’s furniture and shelves. Additionally, the designs of cat furniture are becoming more creative and modern to fit with the times, so consumers can be proud of displaying them in their home.
These products provide an assortment of options for consumers to choose from to help enable them find the right product that benefits their feline while also accommodating what they desire in an addition to their home.
