If you don’t have a lot of room in your home for something larger, like a cat tree, cat shelves might be the answer! Yup, I said cat shelves. When we lived in a smaller space we went looking for something that could give our cat a fun thing to really play on that wouldn’t eat up all of our living space. So, we ended up turning to cat shelves. What are cat shelves, exactly?
They are this really cool form of cat furniture that you can, like a hanging bookshelf, attach to your walls for your cats to climb on. They come in a variety of forms from cute platforms, hammocks and scratchers that all attach to the studs in your walls.
If you’re in a hurry, before we jump into the nitty gritty of this post, here are three of our favorite cat shelves.

Cat shelves of any kind give your cats a lot of coveted “up high” space to play and hang out on. And the sky, or in this case the ceiling, is the limit on what you can do for your cat.
Whether you start small with one platform or get a larger kit, like some you’ll see below, you’re sure to be addicted to creating new play spaces for your feline friends once you get started building with cat shelves!
So, we know that cat shelves are these pretty cool pieces of cat wall furniture that attach to the studs in your walls. They can also come in a variety of styles.
It’s easier than ever to really go ham and create a cat room or wall that even the craziest of cat ladies would envy, especially since you can mix and match to get the most out of your space.
You’re almost certain to find one at your price point and in the style of your home decor. There are so many cool designs out there, you guys!
Just take this one to the left from CatastrophiCreations for example, there is no end to the unique and sleek designs out there.
You’ve got curved cat shelves which you get for when your cat loves a good hammock or bowl shape to snuggle into. Floating cat shelves for when you have a specific aesthetic in mind, in particular the modern sleek one.
Single cat shelves if you just wanna see if your cat likes them (or if you’re slowly adding onto an already existing kitty creation) and cat shelves that are basically a big kit that you can set up so that you can turn your wall into a big kitty jungle gym.
And then the not often talked about member of the cat shelf family, the window mounted cat perches! They really are great too, and can be just as stylish in your home while often being at a very reasonable price.

Floating Cat Shelves
Here we move on to floating cat shelves! A pretty fun subset of the cat shelf category! They aren’t attached or connected to other things or other kinds of cat shelves (like the Catastrophi cat shelf kits for example), they just sort of “float” on the wall as the name suggests. Just be sure that if you get more than one you space them carefully! You want them close enough for your cat to have easy access to all levels of your cat wall creation.
Floating cat shelves really are great since you have so many options to choose from! It opens up quite a few possibilities in terms of configuration and creativity. You can also really easily find single cat shelves, so you can test the waters if you are worried your cat might be a bit more picky or scared of the shelves.

Curved Cat Shelves
If you are on the lookout for what could be considered a sightly more elegant feel, you might want to consider some curved cat shelves! From my experience they can blend in a little better with the home decor, so if you are wanting something that isn’t OBVIOUSLY cat furniture, but more of an interesting and pretty conversation piece you might think about these!
Specifically the Lotus Branch Cat Perch, it’s a really tasteful shelf with some very lovely curve to it! I think it would fit in with any number of decor styles as well, so whatever way you have your house setup, it’ll go along decently well.
With that said, there are plenty of options out there if the Lotus doesn’t quite do it for you. Whether it’s a bit large or just not quite your style, there are plenty of curved cat shelves to peer at below!

Lotus Cat Shelves
Speaking of Lotus cat shelves! We’ve actually had enough people ask us specifically about these so I thought I should include a section specifically on them. As we have more information on what people want to know about, we’ll be sure to add on those requests as well!
Lotus cat furniture is, in general, wonderfully elegant in appearance. They all seem to have a lovely curve and flow to them! It doesn’t matter if we’re looking at their shelves or their cat towers, they all have that refined feel to them that I think most people would love in their homes!
I hope you enjoyed these cat shelves and that this page was useful to you guys! Cat shelves can really be a great way to give your cats someplace to jump and play if you don’t have a lot of space! They can also just be a wonderful conversation starter for when you have friends of relatives over. Have a good day guys and embrace your inner cat lady.
