Title: How Woods For Cats Saved this Cat Family Time and Money, AND Reduced Their Environmental Pawprint.

“Woods for Cats are unmatched in the quality and aesthetic of their cat furniture. We wish every business was like them – they walk the walk meaning you can be confident your cat’s products come from a business who love their animals and the planet as much as you do.”

Meet Kovu: 2 year old Sphynx cat – Energetic – Mischievous. And purring loudly about his Woods for Cats clean, sturdy and sustainable cat furniture.

THE CHALLENGE

Kovu’s family wanted to make sure he had a lot of toys and furniture to keep him happy when they were at work. However, they struggled to find products that lasted, that were easy to clean, and available across Australia.

As a kitten, Kovu tried out many cat products to keep him happy and occupied while his people were at work.

He tried toys and scratchers. They were budget-friendly, but they just didn’t last. Not to mention trying to clean them – well that was a whole other challenge.

Kovu used his cardboard scratchers with great enthusiasm, only to have them collapse underneath him, sending his human family back to the shop.

More time. More money. More waste to landfill.

The whole family wanted a better option for Kovu, their bank balance, and the planet.

Then, when Kovu was 6 months old, his human family came across an eco pet furniture company called Woods For Cats.

THE SOLUTION

Since finding Woods For Cats, Kovu and his family haven’t looked back. 90% of Kovu’s cat furniture and toys are now from Woods For Cats

Their interest was piqued by this local Australian business offering beautiful cat furniture and toys, shipped even to their remote address and promising long-lasting and sustainably made items.

Since getting his first product from Woods for Cats at 6 months of age, Kovu (now 2 years old) has continued to go back for more, choosing them over any other brand.

“They have lasted really well and he loves everything from there. He loved them straight away so it was very easy to keep going back for more.”

Before coming across Woods for Cats, Kovu’s family had searched widely across the internet, including sites such as Etsy.

“But we couldn’t find anything that even came close to what Woods for Cats were offering, especially within the same price range. A lot of the choices out there were very expensive and often overseas so it was hard to even get them delivered to where we live. We weren’t loving the design or look of many, and when we did order a few cheaper items they were hard to clean and never lasted long.”

“The whole process with Woods for Cats has been so easy. Their customer service has been consistently friendly and supportive. The instructions are super easy to read and follow, and they have always followed up to make sure everything has been to our satisfaction.”

“The cost side of things often stops people, but when you weigh up buying a cheaper option every 6-12 months or having the same item of years – the cost starts to add up.”

THE RESULT

A happy Kovu. A beautiful space the whole family loves. And less waste into landfill. “We have not had to replace one Woods for Cats product over the 2 years we have been buying from them. They’re still as good as new.”

Kovu’s people have some furniture envy. “Sometimes we’re jealous of his side of the house – it looks so nice and if I was a cat, that’s where I would want to be”

Kovu loves:
“His particular favourite has been the Tok Tok because he can get up higher than us to look out over the room and out the windows. There is a hammock which attaches to it and this is his year-round favourite sleeping spot.”

“We just recently added a scratching pole to the Tok Tok and Kovu uses it every morning when he wakes up. He enjoys zooming around and jumping off his Z Cat Scratching Post, then laying in wait on his Scratcher Couch to pounce on us as we walk by.”

For anyone considering whether to make a Woods for Cats purchase, Kovu’s family say: “We recommend Woods for Cats to anyone looking for long-lasting, sustainable and cat-loved items that are easy to clean and affordable.”

“In the world we live in today, we’re trying to reduce the amount of waste we contribute. Kovu’s Woods For Cats products are sustainably made and will last a lifetime, reducing our impact on the planet.”

NALA

Title: Tired of Doing Cat Furniture the Old Way? So was Sarah until she discovered ‘Woods For Cats’

Sarah and her cat Nala were struggling to find high-quality and aesthetically-pleasing cat furniture available to an Australian buyer. Then they learnt about Woods For Cats.

Meet Nala: 2 year old British Short-hair.

THE CHALLENGE

Sarah knew the importance of providing enrichment (and human-approved scratching places) for her indoor cat. However, she was struggling against limited cat furniture options available to the Australian market.

“Searching for a cat tower was hard. There weren’t many options apart from the carpeted look, and we aren’t fans of them – a lot of people don’t find the carpeted towers aesthetically pleasing, plus they’re hard to clean and often not very durable against claws.”

When making the decision to add Nala to their family, Sarah and her partner knew an indoor cat would require enrichment aids such as high perches, climbing frames and scratchers. They wanted Nala to have all of this, whilst still maintaining the aesthetic of their apartment.

“I found one product overseas which aesthetically I liked, and it was within budget, however the company didn’t ship to Australia.”

And so Sarah turned to social media for recommendations.

THE SOLUTION

A recommendation for Woods For Cats was the solution to Sarah’s search for the perfect cat furniture.

After an international search to find the right cat furniture for their family, Sarah turned to social media for recommendations. A contact suggested a family-owned Australian business – Woods for Cats.

“I had a look and they seemed to tick all the boxes.

“Looking at their website, they had a wide range of options with a clean look to fit in with our apartment, and multi-leveled cat towers for Nala to jump on and to scratch (instead of our furniture).

Unlike many of the carpeted towers, these are made from high-quality wood and are easily wiped down to keep them clean.

We purchased the ‘Grand Piano Cat Tower’. As an indoor cat, Nala doesn’t have trees to climb, and the Grand Piano Cat Tower has 4 layers, as well as a clear bowl at the top for curling up in. There are scratching panels and areas to hang and hide toys.”

Adding ease to the process, Sarah found the Woods For Cats team very friendly from the beginning and very open to questions and feedback.

“It was an easy process, with fast shipping. The Tower arrived fully assembled – we only had to attach one small toy to it. Everything else was ready to go. This was definitely a bonus as we knew that it was constructed correctly, and Nala could use it straight away”

THE RESULT

The Grand Piano Cat Tower from Woods For Cats has met the whole family’s needs.

“Having a tower that keeps her occupied has made it so enriching for her as an indoor cat. And we now have a lovely new piece of furniture in our apartment. It is sturdy and easy to clean. And we were able to support a local Australian business with a social conscience.”

Nala loves:
“Nala loves the clear bowl at the top – she sits in there to people-watch from the window. She loves to play with her toys in the play space at the bottom, luring her toy mice into her ‘den’. There’s a carpet panel on the side for her to scratch. This is removable for easy cleaning. The tower is a whole world of fun for her.

Whilst we spent a little more on this than some cheaper options, we’ve had it since the start of the year and it’s still as good as new. It’s been worth the investment for something long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing, and loved by Nala.

For anyone considering buying from Woods For Cats, Sarah says “they may be slightly more expensive, but if you have the money to spend, you can be confident you’re getting a long-lasting, quality product from a great local business. We’re all very happy with the product and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Woods For Cats.”

Improve your cats health and reduce the mess in your house with the Double Food Table from Woods for Cats.

“After only a few days of using the Woods for Cats raised food table, we could see the positive change in Smoky’s eating habits. He no longer had bugs and dirt in his food, the bowls weren’t getting knocked over, and he was more comfortable whilst eating. ”

Meet: Smoky – Blue Russian mix and “the friendliest cat you’ll ever meet”.

THE CHALLENGE

Smoky’s food and water was catching dirt and bugs, and he was uncomfortable whilst eating.

Done with dirt and bugs in his food, Smoky and his people were on the search for a raised food table. They hoped for something cat-friendly, and sustainably made that would be easy to clean.

In their search, they came across Australian-owned and sustainable pet furniture business, Woods for Cats.

Impressed with Woods for Cats commitment to long-lasting and sustainable products, Smoky’s family chose the Double Cat Food Table.

THE SOLUTION

“Woods for Cats was our solution to improving Smoky’s health, with their high-quality elevated food table, quick delivery and friendly service.”

Impressed with the research-backed benefits of the Woods for Cats Double Cat Food Table, they made their purchase.

They liked that this product has been designed with cat’s in mind.

Unlike other raised feeders on the market (which have often been designed for dogs), the Double Cat Food Table has been made specifically for cats.
Including:

      • Whisker-friendly depth (to avoid whisker strain), and deep enough to avoid food sliding out
      • Elevated position to support healthy digestion and avoid joint strain (especially important as your cat gets older). Elevation also prevents some cats from playing with their food / water.
      • Treated to be water-resistant and easy to clean (non-toxic)
      • Plastic-free – the base is made from plywood and the dish is ceramic.

“Ever since receiving the food table, Smoky has loved it and has been benefiting from it – it’s great that he now has cleaner bowls, and his food stays fresh for longer. It has made us both very happy knowing this product is improving his health.”

The food table has reduced the occasions of spilled food and water, and has been extremely easy to clean.

“As a company, Woods for Cats have been amazing – very friendly owner and amazing customer service. We love their products for their high-quality and ease of use.

THE RESULT

“Woods for Cats Food Table has given great peace of mind knowing that Smoky feels more comfortable eating his food, his food is cleaner and healthier for him, and there’s less mess to clean up.”

“Day-to-day now Smoky feels more comfortable and will benefit from eating in an elevated position.”

“I would strongly recommend the food table – it’s totally worth it. Your cat will love it.”

“We know that as Smoky gets older this raised food table will continue to meet his changing needs being gentle on his joints, whiskers and digestive system.”
