The instinct to perch is not limited to the birds but to the cat families as well; from wild leopards to the domestic ones, these cats tend to climb trees for both hunting and pleasure. This is why indoors pet cats are willing to climb everything they have access to, be it higher furniture and the reason behind this instinct is not merely for pleasure and fun but for reasons such as following.
By virtue of their nature, a cat feels safer when they are perched at a height. This is why cats living outdoors tend to climb trees to remain at a height to observe the surroundings, to target prey and to remain safe from predators and same instinct can be found in indoor cats as well.
Timid cats can benefit from a cat tree as they observe the environment without the fear of being attacked. It is also beneficial for cats that tend to hide more rather than playing out in the open. In this way, a cat can spend time with the family, perched in its cat tree rather than being confined to underneath of the bed. The best cat trees are one which renders cat safety and comfort and persuades them to spend maximum time in it.
