I was gifted durable cat furniture, the Castle Royale, from Purrniture in exchange for my honest review. As always, all opinions are my own.
Have you ever shopped for cat furniture from the big box stores? It is often cheaply made, flimsy and not durable. Now imagine trying to buy furniture for two exotic cats. Cats that push the limits of 20+ pounds, that are 14+ inches tall and can jump 6 to 8 feet in the air from a standing position. We have two, F2 Savannah cats. We have learned the hard way that we can’t simply buy them just anything. That is why we are so glad to have found Purrniture for our feline friends for some durable cat furniture.
Purrniture was started by Darryl back in 1993. He didn’t set out with the intentions to create a small business, but it ended up happening out of necessity to build something big enough and interesting enough for his own cats to actually enjoy. His approach is simple, utilize existing wood products to keep the cost low, and think like a cat. Purrniture is truly durable cat furniture that is built by re-utilizing wood from the construction, manufacturing, and engineering industries. It’s cat furniture with the quality you can’t find anywhere else.
Get The Most Out Of Your Durable Cat Furniture
Darryl’s sole motivation in his designs is to accommodate the cat. He stresses that cat furniture must be given proper space and placed in the right spot to be used effectively. Most important is that it be placed in the room most frequented by you. It is also ideal to place your durable cat furniture in front of a window. Following these guidelines will ensure that their products will be loved by your cat and appreciated by you.
Purrniture has a Catisfaction Guarantee which states that you must keep your Purrniture for 30 days or MORE. If 30 to 45 days pass and your cats have not fallen for their Purrniture, they will accept it back. Believe it or not, they have only had 14 returns since 1993! Can you say, “Catisfaction Guaranteed!”
Purrniture Durable Cat Furniture Review
Purrniture is located in St. Paul, Minnesota. They have a showroom and workroom where you can see all of their durable cat furniture and exactly how it is made. This really does show the customer the true craftsmanship that goes into each piece. Purrniture offers local delivery as well as shipping within the United States. Keep in mind that all of their furniture comes pre-assembled to ensure that it is sturdy and the most durable cat furniture on the market. You can always drive to their Brick and Mortar location to pick it up as we did. This is a great way to check out all their furniture and toys in person.
For The Record
We have had Savannah cats for almost three years. In that time, we have gone through three cat trees, countless scratching posts and even more assorted toys. We went so far as to have custom made shelves permanently installed onto our brand new living room wall to give our cats a place to climb, bask in the sun, and most importantly, escape from the dog. We also created a ‘catwalk’ in our basement for the cat’s entertainment. So it goes to show that we might know a thing or two about cat entertainment and the need for durable cat furniture.
Why We Love Purrniture
When we brought home the Purrniture Castle Royale, the cats immediately had to explore. It didn’t take any bribing or coaxing, they knew this castle was built for them! The Castle Royale is a luxury cat tree measuring in at 72 inches high with a base size of 42” by 24” and weighs a whopping 160 pounds. This piece of durable cat furniture isn’t going anywhere soon! This particular piece is designed to fit up to eight cats, but Purrniture makes durable cat furniture in all shapes and sizes to accommodate any size house and any amount of cats.
Our cats love that they can lazily lounge on the various perches, courageously crawl through the tunnels and climb straight up the sides to scurry from the bottom to the top in a hurry. We tried two different spots in our house but ultimately settled on putting the Castle Royale in our living room, next to our biggest windows. Per Darryl’s suggestion, this is both near a window and in a room we frequently use.
Fat Cat Cubby
We also bought a 30 inch tall “Fat Cat Cubby”. Our older cat loves to hide in the kitchen cupboards and our younger cat loves to hide under blankets. This durable cat furniture cubby has become their new “chill zone” when they want to sleep or observe things from a safe distance. It offers cats the security they love of an enclosed space, but also allows them to be close. Although our cats usually like to cuddle, they like having options to be more independent if we are not as relaxed as they would like us to be.
We love this smaller option because it can easily travel from room to room as we move throughout the house. I would recommend that anyone that has more than one living room space get a secondary, smaller piece of durable cat furniture from Purrniture so you can have something for every room!
As we are getting ready for the birth of our first child, we have been busy preparing the nursery for baby, baby proofing the house and spending a lot of time, attention and energy on the soon to be newest member of our family. We really wanted to get something for the cats to ensure they know that they are loved and cared for by us. Hence the necessity of getting durable cat furniture and our newfound love for Purrniture.
