Salcombe luxury cat tree ref 10521. This stunning statement cat tree has a lower sitting platform with two stepping platforms leading to a higher sitting platform and a beautiful handmade wicker basket crescendoing at the top. All platforms are made from solid english oak with authentic sheepskin toppers available in various natural colours "see photos". Cats find sheepskin extremely relaxing that's why we use it as our bedding on sophisticated scratch cat trees. Sheepskin contains lanolin and kitties love the odour it gives off.
One popular theory about lanolin and felines is that cats love the scent and taste of the lanolin in the wool fibers because it reminds them of their mothers. The lanolin in the wool also acts as a natural moisturiser, keeping your pets coat glossy, and it also deters bacterial growth and other irritants (like bugs) it is often used as key ingredient in flea/tick control sprays. All our sheepskins are washable with our specially formulated woolwash, you can also just give them a quick brush and they will keep looking like new for years.
Customers have a choice of a condo cave or open handmade wicker basket, both these options sleep two cats very comfortably. The english oak base on salcombe has beautiful black resin running through the natural crevices with embedded oak pieces and a real encased leaf gives a very elegant mesmerising look of class and authenticity. The base has adjustable chrome legs.
The apple wood tree has exquisite grains with various knots throughout and stands at an impressive 6ft with a condo cave or 5ft 1 with open basket option. Rich honey and caramel colour tones run through the grains.
Natural oils are used on sophisticated scratch trees. Tung, danish, boiled linseed and beeswax are the ones i favour because i find they really bring out the beautiful natural grain patterns.To create a deep lustrous protective finish a piece can have up to 20 coats of natural oil applied. Salcombe cat tree has a english oak built in cat scratching area with natural sisal giving kitties all they need in one area. Sophisticated scratch cat trees and cat scratchers are robustly hand built with either applewood or english oak (quercus robur). Oak is considered to be the strongest of all hardwoods because it has a more interlocking grains. Apple wood is also a dense durable hardwood that is heavier than other types of hardwood lumber, such as cherry.
As a result, it is used to make fine wood pieces such as furniture, musical instruments, and tool handles. Its appearance and texture closely resemble cherry, yet apple is significantly heavier and harder than cherry, and is excellent for turning. Treated correctly our english oak and apple wood products will last kitties entire lifetime. Salcombe has a english oak base and cat scratcher, and the main tree is apple wood.
