Elevating Feline Enrichment: Pryde Pets' Aesthetic Cat Furniture Solution

Reading time: 5 minutes

My name is Denise, Co-Founder of Pryde Pets™, and cats have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. So, it feels right that I’m now creating a community of cat lovers and dedicating myself to enriching cat’s lives. I had the incredible fortune of sharing 20 years with my beloved feline companion, Phoebe. It took me seven long years after her passing to welcome another cat's companionship and special affection into our home.

That's when Mustang, a handsome and mischievous Tonkinese, became a part of our family. Little did I know that his arrival would introduce me to the challenges and joys of living with an indoor-only cat.

A Change in Perspective:

The cat's I'd lived with previously had the freedom to roam outdoors, exploring, climbing, hunting, and scratching to their heart's content. But Mustang, as a pedigree cat, was intended to be strictly an indoor cat, as insisted by the breeder. This lifestyle change caught me off guard. I now had to find ways to keep Mustang entertained and physically active within the confines of our home.


The Quest for Stylish Cat Furniture and Enrichment:

Eager to meet Mustang's needs, I embarked on a mission to find suitable solutions for indoor cats. However, my online search for stylish cat furniture proved incredibly frustrating. While there was no shortage of options: cat hammocks, cat shelves, cat playgrounds, cat trees and cat climbing towers, I couldn't help but notice a shortage of style. Many of these products were visually unappealing and clashed with the carefully curated aesthetics of our home. It seemed there was a gap in the market for beautiful cat furniture.

From Frustration to Innovation:

Driven by my passion for feline enrichment and interior design – Pryde Pets was born. A brand dedicated to the needs of our beloved cats while simultaneously complementing the owner's sense of style. The goal was clear: to provide cats with mental and physical enrichment with products that integrate seamlessly into any home decor.


The Birth of the Perfect Solution:

After months of research, design and meticulous development, Pryde's wall mounted cat furniture and climbers were proudly unveiled. These innovative structures are stylish, visually appealing, space-saving, and highly functional. 

Our cat shelves are crafted using felt made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles, ensuring an eco-friendly approach to manufacturing. The modular design allows cat owners to create a diy cat wall playground tailored to their feline friends' preferences.

The Benefits of Pryde Pets' Cat Shelves:

The launch of our wall mounted cat furniture marks a significant milestone in countless cats' and their owners' lives. Let's explore the reasons why these cat shelves have become an essential addition for feline enrichment:

1: Engaging Exercise

Cats instinctively love to climb, perch, and observe their surroundings from an elevated vantage point. Our cat shelves provide a vertical indoor cat playground allowing cats to indulge in their natural behaviours while getting the exercise they need.

2: Mental Stimulation

The multi-level design of our shelves creates a stimulating environment that encourages exploration and mental engagement. Cats can jump, leap, and navigate through the shelves, mirroring the thrill of outdoor adventures.

3: Space Optimisation

By utilising vertical wall space, Pryde's cat shelves enable cats to enjoy their playground without sacrificing valuable floor space. This is especially valuable for those living in smaller homes or looking for apartment cat furniture.

4: Aesthetically Pleasing

Our cat shelves are designed with a keen eye for style and blend seamlessly with any home decor. The sleek and minimalist design enhances the overall aesthetics of your living space. Say goodbye to unsightly cat furniture and welcome a visually appealing addition to your home that showcases your impeccable taste.

5: Cat-Friendly Materials

We prioritise the safety and comfort of your feline companion. Our cat shelves are constructed using high-quality felt, providing a cosy and scratch-resistant surface for cats to lounge upon. With Pryde's cat shelves, your cat can indulge in their natural scratching instincts without causing damage to your furniture.

6: Modular and Versatile

One of the standout features of Pryde's cat shelves is the modular design. Each cat shelf can be arranged to create unique configurations, allowing a customised cat climbing wall or a cosy corner for relaxation. The versatility of our climbers ensures endless possibilities to suit your cat's preferences and your home layout; they’re shelves for cats to walk on, they’re an elevated cat bed… they’re whatever your cat needs.

7: Easy to Install

We understand that not everyone is looking for a cat-shelving DIY project, so we’ve made the installation process as simple as possible. Our shelves come with clear instructions for easy and secure mounting. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your cat’s elevated playground is stable and safe.

8: Cat-Owner Bonding

Our cat shelves provide an interactive and engaging environment to bond with your feline friend. Observe their playful antics, engage in interactive play sessions, or simply spend quality time together. This strengthens the bond between you and your cat, enhancing the overall joy of pet ownership.

9: Positive Impacts on Home Decor

Our cat shelves go beyond functional benefits. Unlike traditional cat furniture that often stands out as an eyesore, our cat shelves blend seamlessly with your home decor. The sleek and modern design, coupled with premium materials, elevates the aesthetics of any living space. Your cat's playground becomes a stylish focal point rather than an intrusive addition.

10: Contributing to Sustainability

At Pryde Pets, we believe in positively impacting the environment. Our cat shelves are crafted using felt made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles, promoting sustainability and reducing waste. By choosing Pryde's cat shelves, you're enhancing your cat's life and contributing to a greener future.
