Yes, $380 seems like an awful lot for cat furniture, but hear us out; we can’t stand those giant, ugly carpet-covered things usually found at pet stores – especially the ones that supposedly resemble "trees." Gag. The Lotus Cat Tree, ($380) for just a little bit more $$ than a carpet-covered monstrosity, actually adds to your home décor rather than detracting from it. The sinuous wood base flows up to three different ledges that support up to 50 pounds each (although, if you’ve got a 50 pound cat, we want to see that!) and is available in three wood finishes. Plus, the tastefully subtle carpet scratch pads attached to the base mean your furniture is safe[r] from Puddy’s razor-sharp claws.
