Monkee Tree Scalable Cat Ladders
We love cats as much as you do and probably like you we have our very own fluff, Smudge pictured here.
In 2016, we wanted to install a cat door for Smudge. But the only place suitable to install one was too high off the ground for Smudge to get access.
After looking around for an off the shelf solution we realized there was nothing suitable on the market. So we invented Monkee Tree (that's "Monkee" with two e's, not "Monkey Tree").
Applying some advanced engineering design we created a patented modular cat tree / cat ladder capable of supporting large cats up to 27lbs (12.5kg).
Monkee Tree is very much a family business, with Smudge testing the prototypes and cat modelling for us!
Sustainable, Scientifically Tested & Adaptable
Different branch sizes and textures on the branches were tested. A folding branch feature, when overloaded, is an important safety and security feature. Monkee Trees have been load tested in a laboratory to ensure they withstand expected loads.
When we developed Monkee Tree we were conscious of producing a durable product, that could be adapted to suit multiple locations. We decided to manufacture locally in New Zealand where we could control quality to a high standard. We were also conscious of the products environmental impact. For this reason Monkee Tree is made from recyclable materials which can easily be separated for recycling at the end of its life. So nothing is glued together to make recycling difficult and all parts have material recycling markings. Where possible we use simple unbleached cardboard and paper packaging (no bubble wrap or polystyrene!).
