About: Wall-Mounted Cat Shelf

Introducing our versatile Cat Shelves, a must-have addition to our premium furniture collection designed to elevate your cat’s lounging experience. Made from solid bamboo, these sturdy platforms provide a safe and comfortable perch for your feline friend to relax high on the wall. Available in two sizes, 18” and 34”, and three distinct styles, our shelves cater to various preferences and home decor. Enhance your cat’s comfort with our optional Plush Bed, a cozy faux fur pillow that replicates the luxurious feel of real fur. Whether your cat loves to nap or observe their surroundings, our Cat Shelves offer the perfect solution.

Install on Any Wall Type!

Our Shelves are versatile and can be installed on any wall type. While most pieces are designed for 16” and 24” studs, our shelves can still be securely installed even if only one stud is available. Simply use the included drywall anchors for the other mounting point.

For the strongest setup, install each plank into a wall stud. This allows you to attach additional furniture like Hammocks and Scratching Poles to the same mounting points, enabling you to transform the cat shelf to a wall-mounted cat tree.

Sizes Compatible with 16” Spacing -

18” Shelf spans 2 studs 

34” Shelf spans 3 studs 

Sizes Compatible with 24” Spacing -

34” Shelf spans 2 studs 

Modular Cat Shelf Design

Our Shelves feature a modular design, held to the wall with mounting planks that can connect to a variety of furniture types. This allows you to customize and expand your cat’s play space over time.

  • Versatile Configuration: The shelves are rotatable, offering a mirrored option.
  • Transformative Add-ons: Add a Curved Ledge and Plush Pad to transform a shelf into a cozy Nest Bed.
  • Functional Enhancements: Attach a Feeder or Planter to change the functionality of the shelf.

Traction Tops

All of our shelves feature sanded tops to provide a rough surface for added traction. For customers seeking even more grip, we offer Cork Pads and 34” Sisal Mats. Please note, that these additional traction options are available only for select shelf designs. See below for details.

Ziggy loves being up high!

Everything got here unscathed. We ordered seven shelves of various sizes, a corner bridge and three steps. We have a tall ceiling with windows above and below across the front of the house. We installed the shelves across the lower part of the upper windows with the corner bridge at the end. The other end has the three steps to get up to the shelves.Ziggy, our Abyssinian cat loves it. He is only five months old but zooms right up there. Early morning is the best for him as the owner blinds are closed so he goes right up to look out.These items are very well made, I love bamboo. It looks great on the wall and of course it is important that the cat likes it. We recently order a four tier cat scratching post for the far side so Ziggy and go up both ways once we install it.It satisfying buying items that turn out to be worth it.

Hi Charles,Thank you so much for sharing these photos and for your review! Your installation looks great and we love the walkway that you created for Ziggy! -Alex M

Kevin loves her new shelf

Kevin loves her new shelf. Quality construction and the stain matches other shelves previously purchased. They were also able to do a custom job with burlap on the shelf. Note that if your walls aren't 90 degrees (ours weren't - surprise!), you might need some spacers when you hang the shelf.

Ashli Hirai Anderson
A hit in our house

Mike was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. He helped us pick out several pieces that would best fit out home. Mike was even kind enough to help us later that night with the set up. We are still in the process of installing all the pieces and it’s already a hit with our cats. I will definitely be ordering additional pieces. As a small animal veterinarian, I cannot stress the importance of exercise and enrichment for cats. The products offered by catastrophic creations are great for encouraging exercise and mental stimulation. I would absolutely recommend these products.

Thank you so much for sending us a photo of your awesome set up Ashli. We strive to offer the best possible experience and we are always happy to offer the best environment for your cat to rest and play. If you need anything else in the future, we are always more than happy to help assist!

Stud spacing and wall construction

Most construction in the US is made up of drywall over wall studs, which are wooden or metal 2x4s that act as the frame of the wall and are what the drywall is attached to. Because these studs are very sturdy, we’ve designed the furniture to be installed into them. They’re typically spaced out at 16” from center to center, so that’s what we’ve designed the furniture to accommodate.
