Are you wondering what the difference between a “Cat Condo” and a “Cat Tree” is? Well, don’t feel like the lone ranger in this. We get this question all the time from folks all across the country. Simply put, a cat condo is a cat tree with a sleeping box or hidey hole in it. In most cases they function just the same. Your cats will climb, romp, play and sleep on them. But the cat condo will offer a box, often way up high, for them to curl up in or just satisfy their need to be “sneaky”!
It’s a lovely modern cat condo with sisal posts! Your cats can climb on the posts or they can use the steps to hop up to the different levels. That makes this a little more accessible even to cats who are having a harder time climbing up to higher spots. And if you like the modern feel of this Vesper cat tree but think that another configuration would be better for you, they have a few different models to pick from! Like their V-Double for example!
With that said, if that’s not your style continue on below and see what else the cat condo world has to offer!
Lets look at some of the other options you can pick from when you’re looking into getting a cat tree, cat condo, or just general kitty play gym of some sort. If you want a hidey hole for your cat that still has at least a little height for them to climb, you can find that pretty easily. Or if you need more of a space saver, that’s similarly easy to find.
There’s anything from tall cat trees with built in condos to small, space saving single level kitty cubbies that will make great caves for your ferocious hunter.

Modern Cat Condos
If you like that modern flair, the good news is that there are lots of different cat condos to choose from that fit into that category. Vesper seems to be leading the front on modern cat condos at the moment, as I found they made a lot of them and at a high quality. But if you’re looking for something that’s a little more “elegant and sleek” I might recommend the Refined Lotus Cat Tower.
It’s got a lovely aesthetic that would go well in just about any home. It’s cushions and pads are all replaceable, so if your cat wears them down you can easily get new without having to replace the entire cat condo/tower combo!
With all that said, if the Lotus and Vesper aren’t what you are looking for, there are plenty of other options!
