Cats are amazing and rather active creatures, who enjoy climbing everything to feel like they are up in the trees, as they would be in their natural environment. But, unfortunately, all their scratching posts and furniture take up a lot of room. However, with every problem comes a solution.

German company Goldtatze, which in English means Gold Paw,  creates handcrafted designer cat furniture that are mounted on the ceiling and walls — creating a climbing heaven for the owner’s feline household members.

By adding wooden bridges, hammocks, scratching posts, and even little dens for cats to hide out in, each site-specific installation offers playful felines plenty of room for adventurous activity and their much needed catnaps. The constructions are not only fun and entertaining for felines, they also satisfy their unbearable need to climb way up high and watch the room from a safe vantage point.

Goldtatze’s installations give cat owners more room for their own furniture, and at the same time to make their beloved pets happy and content in an urban home setting, so as they could to roam freely on their unique playground.

The designed wall and ceiling fixtures also add an element of childhood excitement, and turns a home into a pet-friendly jungle gym for curious pets, as they able to trapeze across the room, climbing the walls and scurrying across suspended bridges, while their owners man the territory below.

Designer and craftsman Stefan Hofmann created these pieces for his cat, Mowgli, who he inherited when he moved into a new apartment. Mowgli apparently needed some extra space to climb in the apartment for his indoor entertainment, and as a result he got a real cat heaven.

The line of furniture includes ceiling-mounted bridges and beds, wall-mounted perches, climbing trees and poles, scratching poles, and more.
