In 2008, Shelley and Joe DelRocco built a treehouse for their cats. The Florida-based husband and wife duo liked the whole process (and result) so much, they began making them for other people as well. Pretty soon, everything grew into a business and today, they sell their designs to cat owners all over the States and beyond. A huge part of their success can be attributed to one particular feature their products share. Trees.

That’s right. While most indoor cat condos and scratchers don’t look anything like the great outdoors, Shelley and Joe constantly improve their designs with a clear goal in mind: to provide the most lifelike natural environment for cats to enjoy indoors. And combining their love for animals with Joe’s experience in building homes, they’re killing it!

Some of these little houses are perfect even for multiple cats. Crafted of wood, cedar, plush carpeting, and silk leaves, they bring out the playfulness in their inhabitants. The movement, rustling, and flexibility exhibited when cats climb speak of their natural instinct of curiosity. Not only are these treehouses durable interactive play centers, but they’re also beautiful pieces of art that complement the human’s home as well.

“Our real cat tree with leaves is designed to focus on your cat’s true nature, bringing out your cat’s primal instincts,” the DelRoccos said. “This method helps reduce captive stress and encourages your cat to stretch and scratch on the gnarled branches, bark, lichen and all.”

The houses cost from $574 to $1,199 and are sold on Shelley and Joe’s ETSY store.
