I know I spend most of my time on here lamenting the steep price of superfluous items, but for me one area (creature) is the exception. What can I say? Wallace deserves the best. Being intimately aware of my quirky (read: strange and unhealthy) obsession, a dear friend recently introduced me to a product she knew I needed in my life. Katris is a modular cat tree/oversized Tetris game that provides endless entertainment for your furry friend and also yourself if you, like myself, have a low threshold for fun.
After trying to play it cool for a few weeks because like... whatever, it's no big deal...
I caved and purchased a set of five blocks for the most doted upon American Shorthair in the borough. I can now confidently say that it was money well spent and it is, in fact, a big deal... or at least Wallace thinks so. Each block comes with a pack of catnip to properly introduce your fur baby to their new perch and some plastic clips to secure the pieces together in whatever orientation you compose. It comes in a variety of finishes, but I went with the original cardboard because sometimes it's best to just let something be what it is... a teakwood veneer isn't going to fool anyone in my opinion. Also it was the cheapest.
If you are unable to commit to such a hefty investment, Petco sells an incredibly adorable substitute for the Katris. I purchased this cat couch long before Katris was on my radar, Wallace loves it more than I anticipated, and he's so stinkin' cute when he's propped up on his couch thinking he's people.
