Description

Just like the Bridge, the Bridge Lounge can be used over a window or doorway, or included in a fun setup. With two 16-inch Lounges at either end of the bridge, your cat journey onto other items or take a nap on the way.

The 34″ Bridge Lounge spans 5 studs at 16″ apart.

The 50″ Bridge Lounge spans 6 studs at 16″ apart.

The 66″ Bridge Lounge spans 7 studs at 16″ apart.

Our 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.

Are your studs 24″ apart?
Our products are designed to mount into studs at 16″ apart on-center. If your studs are not 16″ apart, please contact us before your purchase and we can help you out! Please note that additional materials may need to be purchased.

Please keep in mind that when you install any of our wall-mounted cat furniture you are accepting the risk of a cat falling off, and potentially hurting themselves. We have done extensive testing to develop features to prevent this such as additional traction on the top of our bamboo pieces, appropriate width for all Hammocks and Shelves, and offering Cork Pads for grip. Although we try our best to accommodate all cats, every cat is different and you will know your cat and their capabilities the best. If you have an older cat who may be clumsy or less agile, we recommend starting with furniture that is mounted closer to the ground to avoid possible accidents.

Please also bear in mind that with roped Cat Bridges, there is slightly more potential for accidents. After selling more than 8000 Cat Bridges over the last nine years, we can confidently say that we have only heard of one occurrence of a cat getting tangled in the rope. Thankfully, the cat was perfectly fine after the experience. Due to this feedback, we wanted to add a disclaimer to our Bridges so that all customers can make an informed purchase.

Why Include the Cat Bridge on Your Cat Climbing Wall?

cat wall with cats playing

When building a cat climbing wall, a Cat Bridge can expand the limits on where you’re able to build. For instance, there are often times when you need to continue a route through a gap like a window or doorway and this in when a Cat Bridge can be essential. Those two locations happen to be where most cats prefer to lounge, making the Cat Wall Bridge an excellent option. 

With recent design changes, you’re now able to combine with the slotted shelf to run a bridge perpendicularly from the wall, which adds options like continuing your cat wall around a corner or through a door way and continuing the route along an opposing wall. 

With the three different span options you have an added amount of freedom for where you run the bridge, and we often take custom orders for lengths if it’s not during a rush. If you’re interested in placing a custom order please contact us and we can walk you through the process.

Cat Bridge Benefits: Promote your Cat's Health and Well-being

A cat wall bridge can provide numerous benefits for your feline friend. It creates a perfect area for your cat to observe and lounge from above, which encourages them to climb up and down, keeping them active and healthy. Providing this type of vertical enrichment also helps with stress and anxiety by providing a safe and exciting environment for cats to play, explore, and relax.

Utilizing vertical space in your home with a cat bridge can be especially beneficial if you live in a small apartment or have limited space for your cat to play. When a cat lays on the mounted cat bridge, the slats form around their body, creating a comfortable space to lounge. The bridge rope offers support from the side for your cat to brace their paws and makes the destination more safe and secure for a comfortable nap.

Bridge Walkway Lengths Explained

The Cat Bridge is designed to be installed between studs spaced 16” apart. There are ways you can mount them to fit studs when the bridge ends don’t line up, like raising one side higher than the other. If you’re interested in adding a shelf or hammock to the ends, we also offer the Bridge w/ Landings and Bridge w/ Lounges.

We also offer custom Bridge lengths, but that depends on how heavy of a workload we have in the shop, and we typically don’t offer this between October and January. If it’s outside that time-frame and you’re interested in having a bridge made to fit a custom space, please contact us via email or chat and we can walk you through the process of taking measurements.

bridge lengths

34” Cat Bridge
This is our basic version and is made with a 32” stud-to-stud measurement, to be installed between three studs spaced 16” apart on center. 

50” Cat Bridge
This version of the Bridge has been popular because the Bridge length (48” stud-to-stud) works with either 16” or 24” spaced wall studs. 

  • 24” spacing – 3 studs 
  • 16” spacing – 4 studs 

66” Cat Bridge
The 66” version is the longest option we offer without having a custom length built. It has plenty of space for cats. This can be a great option for windows, because studs tend to be off their normal distance near windows and this version can extend past those on either side. It’s 64” stud-to-stud length can be mounted along five 16” spaced wall studs.

Cat Bridge Design Ideas

The Cat Bridge is modular, allowing them to be connected in many different ways including along walls, around corners, though doorways, windows, or connected perpendicularly from walls.

10 Years of Cat Bridge Testing

We launched the Cat Bridge in 2013, and it’s currently on its fourth version. Over the last 10 years, we’ve had various alterations of the bridges mounted through our house to see how cats use it on a daily basis. Every couple of years we take feedback from both our cats and our customers to make adjustments to optimize the bridge lounging experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

This has been one of our most popular products since we started making and selling cat furniture. We have found that cats typically LOVE their Cat Bridges. 

Shy cats may be hesitant initially when walking on the bridge slats because of the surface moving as they walk. If this is the case, we highly recommend not placing your cat on the bridge by hand, and instead using positive reinforcements like treats, toys, or petting to warm your cat up to their new cat bridge.

Cat Bridges can be installed into sturdy surfaces like brick, cement, or drywall. 

Drywall – If are installing into drywall, it’s important to use a stud finder to first locate your wall studs. This version of the cat bridge is attached to a mounting plank on either side. For instructions on how to find your wall studs and install a mounting plank, here’s a video demonstrating that. 

Most cats are social, so living rooms are often a great option. But every cat is different and some are shy, so a good rule is to install the cat climbing wall in a room your cat currently hangs out in. Windows and hallways are also always terrific choices when it comes to the Cat Bridge.

We’ve tried a few different types of wood to create the frame over the years. We really liked soft pine, but found that although it was nice, cats’ claws could sink into the wood, and the parts would quickly become damaged and warn looking. The pine also had an issue with warping with low humidity during the winter.

Eventually, we switched to sustainable bamboo. The material is incredibly strong, so it can be hold a huge amount of weight and also holds up well to wear and tear over time. After a rough finish on the top side of the furniture, it gives excellent traction for cats to feel secure up on their cat wall.

As far as the depth that the bridge extends from the wall, the platforms are 11” wide and the bridge walkway is around 7”. We’ve changed this width over the years and are very happy with this width because it allows most cats to turn around on the bridge, while not being too wide, so that the ropes still hold cats for snug naps.

Since all cats are different, this really depends on the cat wall climber. If you have a cat that’s fit and agile, you can go up relatively high on the wall.  If your cat has issues with getting around, or is elderly, we suggest mounting lower to the floor.
