The 12-inch Shelf is most effectively used as a way for your cat to traverse to other items, although some cats may use it as a perch. This shelf has a textured fabric surface for cats to grip or scratch and is meant to be a standalone item.
In late 2019 we launched our collection of Gen. 3 furniture! This latest collection has been meticulously engineered to be the strongest and most versatile collection we’ve produced to date. Instead of pine, we now use bamboo which is an incredibly strong material that had allowed for a thinner and sleeker design. We also added an additional mounting point underneath each Mounting Plank which will provide extra support and hold the furniture rock solid against the wall.
Already have Cat Mod (pine) items?
Our grommeted fabric is compatible between Cat Mod and Gen 3 (bamboo) furniture! Just extend your current Cat Mod setup using grommeted fabric and you can install any Gen 3 item from there. However, the wooden components are not compatible across our Cat Mod and Gen 3 collections.

I was not expecting my cats to love this shelf. I thought it was just going to be a way to get from one shelf to another, until they got to a hammock or a bridge. They get to this shelf and they sit for a while. I'm guessing it's because of the white material on top. I wound up exchanging two steps for these shelves (I now have three) and then using the steps next to a window in the kitchen, to hold herbs and plants. This shelf is also in the kitchen (underneath a sisal post and two hammocks) and they wind up sitting on it whenever I am cooking. Super happy with this one.
I've purchased 29 pieces from this company and this shelf is one of my cat's favorites, which was unexpected because I only got it for them to jump from one spot to another... Except they don't really use it to jump from one spot to another; I've got a wall with a bridge on one side of the doorway and a 32" hammock on the other and this shelf is the midway point (about 60 inches) ... and they stay on it. I've got this shelf near an older piece (pine, not bamboo) and they match beautifully because all of the furniture fits on planks so they're modeled exactly the same and the pine is only slightly lighter in color. The bamboo has a textured appearance and the pine does not and with the 12" shelf, that's only apparent on the bottom plank. The white material that's on it is staying firmly on it but if my cats decide they want to pull it off, it can be easily reinforced with just a little glue. This shelf is a keeper. I had to order a second one because my cats love it so much.
I have had mine installed for several days. So far they are sturdy, look good, and cats like jumping onto them. One draw back I noticed is the fabric material used-it's kind of woven with little holes, and you know how cats love to scratch on that kind of surface. The fabric seems to be glued on the bamboo, and I've noticed some corners are already peeled off, I am not sure the fabric will hold on very long.
