Parts of the Kissapuu pole are made of metal, and thus the pole withstands even pole dancing of bigger cats. The pole is to be assembled to a solid and firm floor, assembly to floor with carpeting is prohibited.

The pole is coated with a 12 mm thick rope material that withstands the cat's nails and scratching. The rope material options are:

  • sisal rope made of agave fibre growing in the nature. The rope is a non-stretchable, rough-surfaced natural product and natural colour. The strongest rope.
  • manila rope made of abaca natural fibre. The rope is also rough-surfaced and lightly oiled (oils are paraffin-based white and mineral oils). Manila rope is darker in colour than sisal. Not recommended for the very sensitive or allergic.
  • artificial hemp made of synthetic polypropylene. The colour is natural, almost like real hemp. A strong rope. When the cat scratches, nothing "crows" from the artificial hemp rope, the surface becomes fluffy.

​The product comes with instructions for replacing ropes and felt covers.

Wood material for the levels/perches and wall shelves are oak veneer or birch plywood originating in Finland, Europe or North America. All are responsibly produced and certified.

The levels are coated with a strong knit felt with excellent wear-resistance - including cat nails.

The sleeping pads are made of off-white 100 % cotton fabric (duffel bag fabric). The base fabric is made of off-white anti-skid fabric. Cotton wool is used in between as padding.

The sleeping pad can be washed in a machine in 60 degrees. Fabrics may shrink in laundry by approx. 3 %.

Unique goat fur skins and sleeping pads made of goat fur are also available. They cannot be washed.
