You may recognize this sleek cat tower as the previously released Sky Climber. The manufacturer, Whisker Studio, has made a few changes and just re-released it as the Contour Cat Tower. The new design is a bit more open, enhancing the shape and allowing cats to move more freely from shelf to shelf. Measuring 6 feet tall, the Contour Cat Tower has a foot print of just 21″ x 26″, making it suitable for apartments or small spaces.
The new Contour Cat Tower comes in a range of materials and finishes. At the high end, the Contour is available in sustainable bamboo plywood with a carbonized or chocolate finish. These finishes are created with organic vegetable-based oils that do not emit any harmful VOCs. The bamboo plywood is still a relatively under-utilized material and the finishing process is quite time consuming, making the end result quite expensive. The carbonized bamboo Contour is $590 and the chocolate is $640, but these two versions include free shipping.
The Contour is also available in birch veneer plywood finished with a walnut stain for $450 + S&H, or for the DIYers out there, check out the unfinished birch model for just $299 + S&H. The unfinished version lets you stain or paint it yourself to match your decor. This is a great option for people who have a bit more time than money!
