Company story

Cats have been a part of my life for over 25 years. Over the years, I have tested different cat scratching and climbing trees of different prices. For years, I wondered where to get a cat tree that fulfills the cat's need for scratching and climbing; that would be of high quality, durable, unique, modifiable and that not take too much space. Could the cat tree be a stylish and decorative furniture at the same time? Why should I not manufacture the product myself?

Through my designer friend, I became acquainted with a designer carpenter who was inspired by the idea. As a result of our co-operation, we created a great product, Kissapuu cat tree: a sturdy, eco-friendly cat scratching and climbing tree that can be assembled alone without permanent fastening. The Company, Cat's Joy Ltd (Kissan Ilo Oy) was born in July 2017.

My cats Sissi (passed away in November 2023) and Smirre are the innovators of our Kissapuu products. 

Kissa (Finnish) means cat and puu (Finnish) is tree > Kissapuu Cat Tree. Kissapuu is made in the world's happiest country, Finland (nominated in 2023 for the sixth time successivel

Guiding principles

Ageless design, functionality & environmental responsibility

We design and manufacture durable products of high quality using eco-friendly materials. The life cycle of a decorative and furniture-like products is increased by the possibility to tailor and choose the materials that suit your interior design. 

We strive to do our part in reducing the disposable culture and environmental strain caused by manufacturing any product. We still remember the time you had to save to buy the product you wanted. Often the final acquisition added to the joy. Even a cat becomes fond of long-lasting furniture. Kissapuu cat tree is a product that lasts the cat's entire lifetime. Worn parts can be upholstered like a quality sofa.

Excellent customer service - for all members of the cat home

In addition to the high quality product, we want to offer first-class service. Our goal is to provide excellent customer experience starting from thinking of making an order till the product has arrived.

Well-being & valuing cats

We all have animal friends with whiskers and tails at home. Animal activation and well-being is important to us. We want to increase the value of a cat, and thus support several Finnish animal protection associations, but co-operate also with breed cat associations.

Social responsibility

Kissapuu product designers are professionals of designing, upholstery and carpentry who are paid an appropriate compensation for their work. We also provide work for several other self-employed professionals. Thus, we contribute in creating domestic well-being by paying all business-related payments and taxes to Finland.
