The Cat Mod - Modular Climbing Systems
The Cat Mod - Modular Climbing Systems

This project has already launched.

At CatastrophiCreations, we make cat furniture from solid wood, canvas fabric, and natural sisal rope. Our collections are built to evoke feline instinct. Each piece is beautifully hand-crafted, space conscious, and feline addicting.

 

When creating The Cat Mod, we made sure to maintain all the positive aspects of our first collection, such as strength, appearance, and quality, while also adding some new and exciting features in order to elevate it from the original collection.

 

Another great feature is that these are now modular; you can build almost any design you would like. We will be including schematics to build some standard configurations, but we hope to inspire you to come up with your own unique complexes!

Our canvas fabric has mounting points every eight inches down the fabric so that customers can get really creative with their designs and not be hindered by our specifications. The shelving planks can also have multiple sections of fabric attached to them so that complexes that are already mounted on the wall can be built out over time.

Our mounting hardware is no longer visible when our hammocks and complexes are mounted on the wall, giving the planks a "floating" look.

We have also created a series of add-ons, including feeding stations, sisal poles and sisal-lined escape hatches. These add-ons are made to be interchangeable with the current mounting hardware so that the tops of our mounting planks can easily be switched out and upgraded.

We plan on creating even more add-ons in the future, giving customers the option to upgrade their furniture down the road and keep their set-ups current with our newest creations.

 

These are made from solid wood and steel and are extremely sturdy when mounted properly into studs. Each plank is designed so that when weight is applied from the top, it pushes the segment against the wall, causing an incredibly sturdy hold. Each shelf has been weight-tested at 80 pounds. The canvas is made from a heavyweight cotton so that it will withstand cat claws and excessive pouncing.

 

We're lucky enough to live with three cats with very different personalities. They help us decide which items are hits and which ones are flops.

Risks and challenges

We've been handcrafting cat furniture for a little over two years now. Positive reviews about our quality and workmanship are extremely important to us as we grow the company. This has led us to have a 5-star average rating on Etsy with over 1,200 reviews. Though we are unyielding in our concern with professionalism and excellence throughout the production process, there is always the chance that something can delay our shipments. This is a slim chance, however, as we take our shipping dates extremely seriously.

In the event that things don't go as planned, whether from a delay in the manufacturing timeline or something else, we promise to communicate honestly with you and work around the clock until the issue has been resolved.
