12 Heavy-Duty Cat Trees for Large Cats That Let Your Chonk Climb Safely

While you might not think of cats as being especially tree-savvy, cat trees are a must for any house kitty. They give your feline something to scratch that isn’t your furniture, let him snooze and stretch out, and give him another place to play.

But finding a cat tree for large cats is no small feat. Having a big boy (or girl!) means you need to make some special considerations when choosing a tower for your fur baby. It’s not all about looks—you need to pay attention to things like anchoring and weight limits.

“If it wobbles, forget it,” says Laura Cassiday, MS, CCBC, ABCCT. “Make sure it can withstand significant pressure.”
