For cats climbing is both instinctive & an intrinsic part of their physiology - we believe giving indoor cats the opportunity to climb is a fundamental part of their well being, like walking your dog.
Bringing The Outdoors Indoors
Climbing comes naturally to cats & should be part of their daily exercise routine - it keeps them active & in good shape plus helps burn off any surplus energy whilst playing.
Hicat® cat climbers satisfy this instinct to climb so if you're not lucky enough to live in an environment that has opportunities for exercise & climbing, a Hicat® is a superb substitute for a cat's natural habitat.
Our designs are centred around indoor cat climbing structures that are safe, simple & that maximise vertical surface area whilst remaining compact in terms of footprint - they provide a unique all limbs climbing experience, as opposed to just back limb jumping from platform to platform, that's focused around energetic play, secluded relaxation & providing lots of entertainment for both you & your cat.
The scale of our units, surface area & tree-like climbing experience are exercise related aspects of our Hicat® design but cat behaviourists will also tell you how important vertical territory is, especially in a multi-cat household - having lounging, sleeping & playing opportunities at different levels not only broadens your cat's environment vertically but also fulfils its important & often overlooked territorial needs.
Our designs include units that have access hole compartments & a recessed platform top offering built-in cat-friendly multi-levels & can be set up next to furniture & room features to exploit untapped vertical territory helping to maximise your cat's indoor landscape & give it a whole new world to explore.
About Our Products

We wrap our climbers in coir boucle carpet, which has a looped weave so that your cat is sure footed & confident when climbing - the internal shelves & surfaces are finished in a luxurious twist pile carpet to give your cat a soft & cosy space to curl up.

What Our Customers Say...
"Kitty Boy (aka Valentino aka V) LOVES the fatcat, polecat and cats cradle! You guys are truly, truly masters at what you are doing. The polecat, fatcat and cats cradle are exceptional quality and workmanship! Everything down to the shipping packaging and instructions is so thoughtful and elegant.
We (and he) are having an absolute ball watching him and playing with him...his favorite game is to race up the fatcat to catch the feather “Da Bird”, then he drags it down inside the fatcat all the way to the bottom. It’s hilarious. He’s gotten really good, almost swinging like a monkey between the fatcat and polecat, and then he slowly lowers himself into the cats cradle. And the peep holes are genius. I regret not getting more of the peep holes!"

“The moment the cats saw them after installation they immediately ran up them. Amazing. We had to teach the kittens to climb down which took only two tries! Tilda is happy to jump down through the internal hole and then out onto the FatCat. The versatility is great. We literally searched the world to find bespoke cat furniture that was not junky looking as we had just completed building a custom home. You guys make the best cat furniture In The World! Keep up the great work!!”
