Some cat owners know that there are two types of cats, tree dwellers and bush dwellers. Tree dwellers like to perch high up, on bookcases or upper cabinets, while bush dwellers like to feel secure in a low hidden place.
If you have a cat that likes to perch high above the ground, adding wall-mount shelf steps would make your feline very happy.

Free floating shelves spaced properly can turn a plain wall into a playground for your cat. Select a wood finish that fits your interior design style or paint the shelves a bold color. Hardware such as metal pipe supports add an interesting material change. You can work with your home’s existing structural elements such has ceiling beams or niches to create a natural flow in the space.
