Frequently Asked Questions

What stud spacings will accommodate the Shelves?

Our Shelves are one of the most versatile items in our collection when it comes to stud spacing. Our 18" and 34" Shelves are designed for studs spaced 16" apart. Thanks to the solid bamboo, you can also install our Shelves at any stud spacing. You can use drywall anchors for one mounting point if necessary. As long as one Mounting Plank is securely installed into a stud, the second Mounting Plank can be installed using drywall anchors. We also offer our 34" Shelves in a slotted version which allows Mounting Planks to be attached and installed into the wall at more intervals. 

Can the Shelves be mounted along studs that aren’t 16” on center?

Our Shelves are compatible with 24″ studs and other irregular stud spacings. The 18”/34” Shelves can be installed by using drywall anchors for one of the two included Mounting Planks as long as the other Plank is fully installed into a stud.

The latest edition of our 34” Shelf has two slots that run along the Shelf allowing for more options when mounting into studs. You can install the Shelf onto the Mounting Plank at any point along the slots. This accommodates 24″ studs as well as other stud spacings that may be a little more irregular. You can also utilize this feature to work around a corner. Otherwise, there is no change in the functionality of the Shelf.

Can the furniture be mounted outside?

We do not recommend our products for outdoor use. Bamboo has a high starch and sugar content. Since our bamboo is composed of many layers of compressed reeds, the bamboo can mold over time in areas with high humidity or regular exposure to rain. We are in the process of testing sealant options that will protect the material. In the future, we hope to offer furniture that can withstand the elements for our customers who would like to expand their Catastrophic Layout to the outdoors. At this time, we ask that our furniture is used indoors only.

Can the Shelves be mounted in a mirrored fashion?

Yes, the modular design of the furniture allows you to easily flip the design of any of our Shelves or Condos. The furniture will arrive disassembled, giving you the freedom to work with your space. You can mirror any Condo layout or even split the pieces up and install them in your own arrangement.

Can I combine a Shelf with other items?

Yes, our furniture is modular meaning any of our pieces can be connected together. If you would like to combine a Shelf with another bamboo item, you will simply need our long furniture bolts. These can be included in any purchase upon request by leaving us a note on your order. You can also reach out to our support team to manually order additional furniture bolts as well. 

If you already have your furniture, you can order additional hardware directly from our site.

Do the Shelves have good traction?

If you have a cat who will enjoy running and jumping across the furniture, the surface can be slightly slick. With this in mind, we developed our Cork Traction Pads. These are adhesive pads that can be applied to our bamboo Shelves. The thin layer of cork fabric provides a perfect surface for your cat to grip. Results will vary depending on the activity level of your cat.

Is that a real Planter?

Yes, this Planter is for living plants! Cats love having something green to snack on and including a Planter will offer even more feline enrichment in your layout. Please bear in mind that some common household plants are toxic to cats and we only recommend cat-safe plants. Here is a short list of examples that are safe for your cats: 

  • Cat Grass
  • Cat Nip
  • Spider Plant
  • Boston Fern
  • Lilyturf
  • Lemon Button Fern
  • Variegated Wax Plants

If you would like to add a Planter attachment to an existing Shelf, follow this link to find individual Shelf components.

Can you do a custom Shelf length or size?

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer our Shelves in custom variations. If you are interested in our Shelves but are not sure how to work with your space, feel free to contact our support team! We can offer advice on installing our products and furniture layout suggestions.

What are the functions of the Slotted Shelf?

Our latest version of the 34" Shelf includes a pair of slots that runs along each edge. These slots allow you to install the Mounting Plank at new intervals! You can now install a 34" Shelf across studs spaced 24" apart and combine our furniture pieces in other unique ways.

How do I clean the furniture?

You can dust, brush, or vacuum away any accumulated surface dirt. Use a soft cloth or sponge with mild soapy water. Make sure you wring out excess water and wipe the wood gently. We recommend an organic or natural soap rather than a harsh detergent. This is because harsh soaps can damage or discolor the natural sheen of the bamboo. Since bamboo is a reed plant, it is important to make sure you do not oversaturate the bamboo while cleaning.

Behavior and Enrichment

We work with animal behaviorists to help us understand what kinds of cat furniture to build and why. Giving your cat its own unique space on the wall promotes exercise and also thought-provoking enrichment. Learn more

  • In 2018, a study by Pet Obesity Prevention showed that 59.5% of the cats in the US were overweight.
  • Without enrichment, cats can develop behavioral issues like aggression, anxiety, attention-seeking, urinating or defecating outside of the litter box, eating disorders, or other disorders like over-grooming or scratching.

Why Cat Walls?

Living in a small home or apartment can be crowded enough, without adding bulky cat trees and towers to the mix. So how do you enrich your cat’s life without sacrificing up your own comfort? While you can’t add more rooms to expand your cat’s territory, you can build up instead. Cats like being up high anyways, so cat shelving really makes a lot of sense. Wall-mounted cat furniture gives your cat more freedom to play and explore, without disrupting the flow of your room or impeding on your limited floor space.

Cats have an instinctual need to be up high. While you may be aware that your cat is a natural predator, you should also note that your cat is also prey. Being high up gives your cat a better vantage point to survey potential danger and food sources. This allows your cat to feel more secure in his home, as he can determine the threat level of unknown visitors, dogs, or even small children while remaining safely out of reach.
For homes with multiple cats, there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing cat shelves suitable for your space. Most importantly, you want to have multiple routes up and down walls. Some nice options we suggest are The Garden Complex or The Temple Complex.
If you are having territorial issues with your cats, adding vertical territory also acts as a way for cats to showcase their flexible hierarchy in a peaceful manner. The dominant cat of the moment can jump to a higher platform, rather than resorting to minor squabbles. Adding to your cats’ vertical territory can lessen the tension between cats since there is more territory to share.
Regular play is important to establish for cats, preventing many behavior problems before they start.


It's important to give your cat an outlet for their scratching needs. Save your couch and other furniture by having sisal-covered cat furniture around the house for them to scratch.
A wall-mounted cat habitat is a great way to create an environment that is physically complex and that encourages your cat to engage in species-typical behavior like scratching and climbing.
Lack of exercise is an issue with many indoor cats. Providing them with a space of their own to jump, climb, and play is a great way to keep them mentally enriched and healthy. Our furniture is designed with this in mind, providing cats many routes to avoid conflicts, sisal holes for play, and sisal poles and posts for climbing and keeping claws healthy.

We offer a wide variety of styles, sizes, and colors to match the décor in your home. This is a modular system that can be built in many different ways to create something very unique to the space.
Having a space up high allows cats to have their own territory that is up high enough for them to feel secure, far out of reach of any perceived danger.

A benefit of incorporating cat furniture with your wall space is that you can start off small and build on the layout over time. If you're not quite sure how your cat will like being up high we suggest starting with a smaller piece from our furniture line, like a simple Cat Wall Hammock. You can then add on to the system and use the planks to create a larger structure over time if you decide to expand.
Our cats love to tip over their food dishes on the floor. If you are having issues feeding your cats on the floor, we suggest giving your cat an elevated feeder. These come in handy for keeping food off the floor and creating a more secure place for your cat to eat, far above scary children and hungry dogs.

All of the furniture we sell in the shop is meant to be mounted into studs. Since 16” studs are the most common is the US, most of our complexes are made to be mounted along that stud spacing. Once our furniture is mounted properly, every solid wood shelf or plank is weight-tested to hold 85 lbs each, and each fabric stretch fabric section is weight-tested to hold 65 lbs.

Drywall Repair Tips

Over the years, we’ve heard feedback from some people who are concerned they may damage their walls after installing our furniture. We recently updated the furniture we had hung up on our walls at home and recorded the process of us taking down the furniture to show how to repair the holes. This is something that can come in handy when moving from an apartment complex or moving your cat furniture to another location in your home.


Worried about mounting in an apartment?
Megan and I rented apartments for the first five years of the business and our walls have always been filled with furniture so that we could try out ideas with our cats and take photos. During those years, we moved four times and have never had to pay anything out of our security deposits due to wall damage. From our experience, apartments allow small holes in your walls, typically to hang up pictures and other decorations around your home. We send the same size screws along with our furniture for installation, which leaves a small 1/8″ sized hole after taking down.


If you need approval from your landlord, we suggest explaining that you would like to install shelving that will leave 1/8″ holes in your wall and that you will be patching them up prior to moving out. Early on, we asked our maintenance person if we were able to “install cat furniture on our walls” and they seemed confused by the idea. Wall-mounted furniture is still a relatively new concept and without explaining the installation process, some may think it would leave major holes in the walls. After we explained that we would only leave small holes behind, they were perfectly fine with the furniture going up. Installing a TV on the wall uses much larger bolts, requiring bigger holes. If your landlord allows people to install TVs on the wall, the wall-mounted cat furniture should also be fine.
So here are some tips we’ve put together to repair the drywall after removing or switching the location of your wall furniture.
Things you will need:

Putty Knife
Joint Compound
Paint Roller
Matte Paint
Foam Sanding Block

Step 1 - Locate and Scrape Down Any Holes
Without any compound on your putty knife, scrape your drywall around where the holes are to even out the surface you are working with. I’ve made the mistake in the past of adding putty while there is drywall protruding out and having small pieces coming off the wall and mixing with the mud. This creates problems when trying to get a smooth finish.


To mount the furniture we use small #8 screws, so the holes they leave in the drywall are very small holes that are easy to patch up. (Pictured: 3 holes, before and after scraping)


Joint Compound vs Spackle
I prefer using a joint compound rather than spackle. This material is what’s used to cover seams when installing drywall, it dries very hard, and I find it easier to work with after it’s dried, allowing for a nicer finish on the wall. The downside to using the joint compound is that it takes longer to dry and shrinks more than spackle, but I just do two coats, sanding in between, and it turns out really nice. For years I used spackle and have never been able to make the holes completely disappear. With the quick-drying spackle, it doesn’t harden all the way either, staying flexible, whereas the joint compound dries to the same hardness as the rest of the drywall.

Step 2 - Patch with very thin layers
It is important to patch your walls with a thin layer, using your putty knife. In the past, I’ve done thicker coats, thinking that I could sand it down after it dried to be even with the wall. I’ve decided this is pretty much impossible and adds a lot of extra work. After applying your compound, let it dry for five hours.


Step 3 - Sand using long strokes
Next, use a foam sanding block and sand in long strokes to ensure a more even finish. Use your fingers to feel if it’s smooth or not. If you can feel where the layers get thicker, you’re probably going to see them after the paint is applied.


Step 4 - Repeat
Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the hole is completely gone.
Since the joint compound shrinks down a little as it dries, after the first coat dries there will be a small indentation in some of the holes. Do another thin coat over these to even the area out completely. We have found that two layers of the compound are sufficient for the 1/8″ holes.
Step 5 - Paint
We’ve found that matte paint is the best for repainting your wall and hiding any possible imperfections. I first got a more expensive type called Infinity from Lowe’s. I later found out that although this paint is made to be easier to clean, its matte finish has a semi-gloss shine to it. Now I’ve been getting the next type of paint down in price, which was called Showcase. Both are by Sherwin Williams and available at Lowe’s.
If you look closely at the side by side pictures below, you can see there is a slight smoother area in the center of the picture. I’m fine with this, because it’s difficult to notice unless you get very close and are looking for imperfections.


A more extreme example - Our retired mounting wall
A couple of years ago, we bought our first home and wanted to continue using our living room to do photo shoots. Since that meant installing and removing furniture once a week, we decided to install plywood panels to create a mounting wall. Since then, the business has moved into a new commercial space which has a cat room with mounting walls, so these are pictures from us taking our living room back.
