Catipilla Pro Cat Tree

Remember we told you all about soon-to-be launched kitty climbing assist from Catipilla, a UK start-up that has designed a unique tool to help cats do what comes naturally – climb?

Well the Catipilla Pro Cat Tree is now officially launched on Kickstarter and has, in its first 10 days, reached the 20% mark on its £15,000 fundraising goal. But, to help this cool and fun new cat-friendly product make it all the way, the founding family at Catipilla needs your help.

An innovative cat climbing frame that makes use of vertical wall space both inside and outside the home

The Sutton family’s goal is to receive £15K in pledged donations by 10 May, to bring the Catipilla Pro Cat Tree to life. They aim for it to be priced at £160 but early bird donation pledges will get it for just £90! Shipping is planned for September so there really isn’t much time to wait.

To help make this climbing frame that cat-owners can put up outside windows to help their feline friends get up to them easier bloom, visit here for more info: and to watch the concept video, featuring founder Smudge the Cat!e love this Cat Tree because, quite simply, it is – as described by the Catipilla team themselves – a functional alternative to the cat flap. It essentially allows your kitty to climb, which is one of the things every cat owners knows is a fave pass-time of their feline friend, and, if your cat is outside, he or she can climb up to a window to alert you to their presence – so you won’t ever miss seeing your kitty on the outside window ledge to let them in.
