Hello, cat lovers! We’re back with a review of options for finding great cat furniture, cat trees or kitty condos and this time we’re searching in Calgary, Alberta. Ahhh, Calgary – home of the nearby Rocky Mountains, home of the Calgary Flames, and of course – home of a lot of adoring cat parents!
If you’re searching for a cat tree for the first time, you may be a bit confused about different features, sizes and even costs. And you also may feel confused about where to look for a cat tree or kitty condo for your pet. So, we’ll take some of the pressure off you and help you find a cat tree that is just right for your little feline bambino.
Calgary has a wide variety pet stores that carry cat trees and jungle gyms for cats. (There is a difference! The jungle gyms are ones that have a whole bunch of different activities built in for kitty, whereas the true cat trees are usually simpler pieces of furniture.) Here is a list of local Calgary pet stores and specialty shops that usually carry cat trees for sale:
Pet Stores and Specialty Shops that sell cat trees in Calgary

- PetValu – is my favourite pet store in Calgary, bar none! (Their Perfomatrin grain free cat food is the ONLY one my ginger tabby will eat! I highly recommend the Macleod Trail location – they are very helpful.) They have a wonderful selection of scratching posts, and all sizes of well constructed cat trees.

- Twisted Tree Cat Furniture – is a funky company based out of Airdrie (which basically is a suburb of Calgary now!) These are simply astonishing cat trees that look like REAL trees. And this is an Alberta-based business, and the owner – John – is a true artisan. I adore this website, and all of his creations! Oh, and he does custom creations. Win-win-win!

Cat Trees Calgary – In Summary
Cat lovers – I hope you find the option that is just right for your beloved pet. A good, solidly constructed cat tree or cat condo can last years (or even decades!) and provides endless hours of fun and comfort for your pets. Cats love having their own space to nap (all the time!), scratch and play. They love to climb and perch up high – and a good cat tree can provide all of these for your cat, and therefore keep them happier and healthier. Hooray for our favourite buddies – the wonderful, quirky cat! We wouldn’t have them any other way.
