FAQ

Is Kissapuu climbing and scratching tree suitable for outdoor use?

The metal parts of Kissapuu are corrosion-treated, but the product is not intended for outdoor use because of rain and snow. However, Kissapuu cat tree is suitable for use on a glazed balcony or other protected area. However it is to be remembered that in non-heated areas risk of huminity always exists. We recommend to have Kissapuu inside for winter period.

How durable is the cat tree pole?

The pole/post of Kissapuu cat tree is made of metal with welded parts. Although the diameter of the pole with its ropes is narrow, about 4.5 cm / 1.77 in, the pole withstands even pole dancing. However, we only recommend the pole to be used in cat pole dancing!

Does Kissapuu cat tree stay standing?

It certainly does if you have carefully followed the assembly instructions and secured the product firmly between the floor and the roof. Kissapuu Cat tree is not to be assembled to floor with carpeting, the floor needs to be solid and firm.

It is advisable to check from time to time that the fastening is still firm and tighten if necessary.

Use of Kissapuu climbing and scratching tree for other purposes is prohibited and may not be used to suspend/install inappropriate products (except for sleeping pads or blankets on the levels). Kissapuu cat tree is not a children's toy, so mind the children in the vicinity of cat tree and prevent children from climbing on it.

Is it easy to assemble?

Kissapuu climbing and scratching post is designed to make its assembly very easy. It can be assembled alone without any help. We provide clear assembly instructions and utility tools. Tighten the pole by rotating it firmly between the floor and the roof without a permanent fastening, so you can later change the location of cat tree.

Can I tailor Kissapuu cat tree assembly according to my wishes or acquire it one part a time?

This is possible. You can choose the levels/perches from our selection and decide on the number of perches and their place. See the "Cat trees" section of the product selection. This way you can also acquire cat tree for yourself in parts, depending on the situation of your cat home.

You can change the composition of perches in the Kissapuu climbing and scratching tree, and thus get variety for a cat and yourself.

If you want to compare the materials at home, contact us and we will send you samples of wood, rope and felt materials.

If I move to another apartment/house and room height alters?

This is not a problem. Some of our customers, while they have moved to a new home, have ordered a new upper part of the pole which fits the new room height. It is not necessary to buy a whole new Kissapuu cat tree. The upper part of the pole comes in varying length. You can order a new one that fits the height of your new apartment.

We have also customised poles so that you can locate Kissapuu for balcony with glazing in summertime for the joy of your cat.

Changing of rope and felt?

When it is time to replace worn rope of the pole or felt ot the platforms, you can purchase new materail from us, see Spare parts. You can replace them following instructions provided with the assembling instructions.
