If you’re looking for a cat tree for declawed cat, boy do we have a good selection of cat trees for you! It’s really important to supply your declawed cat with easy to climb and fun things to do, because they need mental stimulation and exercise too (duh, right?).
It’s worth noting before we get into the cat trees that we here at Spiffy Pet Products do not endorse declawing your cat! We agree with the Humane Society of America on this one. It’s really not good for them, as you are basically amputating their toes which can lead to a lot of issues.
If you want to learn more in depth about the side effects that can come from declawing your cat, here is a PetMD article on the topic. If you can’t handle having your furniture a little scritched or monitoring your cat to stop them when they start and providing other things FOR them to scratch, then perhaps a cat is not the right pet for you.
With all that said, I know that sometimes a declawed cat will come into your life unexpectedly! My parents took in a tom who had been dropped off in our neighborhood. The poor fellow has no front claws. That was about 12 years ago and I’m happy to report that Taco (my then 3 year old daughter named him) is hale and hearty to this day.

With the little cat condos/cubbies on the various platforms it’s almost like a cat climbing tree house!

Cat Fact: even though you have a declawed cat in your life, they will likely still “scratch” at the furniture and at their cat trees and scratch posts. Why do they do this, and do declawed cats need a scratching post? Well, they do this, as The Cat Clinic of Roswell points out, to relieve stress and mark their territory since they have scent glands in the pads of their feet. Now, whether they need a DEDICATED scratching post or not… Well, I think that could go either way, since they will likely happily knead and ‘scratch’ at whatever cat tree you provide your declawed cat with.

As you can see there are a lot of parts you can get to either add on to the main starter pack or that you can buy individually in order to make your very own starter pack! Something I’ve noted customers say about these kitty city kits is that they are surprisingly sturdy and that their kitties really do just love hanging out, romping and rough housing on them.
Though people do notice that after awhile (lets say 6 months) they do start to notice a bit of wear and tear. As you would when something is being used daily as a kitty jungle gym. However, any potential issue with wear and tear is easily fixed, as once it gets to the point where you’d want to replace it, you only really need to buy and replace the one part that is worn out! It makes for an easier fix than a worn out carpet cat tree.
PRO TIP: while it might not seem it, building a cat tree can sometimes be easier, or less expensive than buying a premade one. While it isn’t for everyone, if you just can’t find the right cat tree for your cat, you might want to consider learning how to build your own cat tree house. You could do everything from making a large platform cat tree to finding some nice cat tree condo plans and you’ll be set.
Cat Trees For Older & Declawed Cats!
Now, we all know that as our kitties get older they can get kind of achy just like we do. Even the most active of cats can need a little more TLC and cautious thought put into the kinds of cat trees we get for them. You might not want to go super tall or have large jumps anymore!
Don’t worry though, there are plenty of options out there still. This sort of stair step cat tree that we can see above is going to work out well whether you have an older cat, a young cat, a declawed cat or some combination of the aforementioned.
People on amazon have noted that their cats really do love this cat tree, it’s easy for them to move along the steps to get up on that comfy bed at the top, and it can handle a bit of play. Though, if you’re cat is really rough and you think they are going to zoom and flail about a lot, you might want to look at some of these other easy to climb on cat trees, since this one does wooble just a little bit.
The cat trees just above could even work as cat furniture for fat cats, if you happen to adopt a kitty who is a bit overweight or somehow your lazy fluffball has gained a few extra pounds and you’re trying to encourage them to work it off with a safe bit of furniture or a cat tree. While we all know we need exercise to stay healthy and fit, it’s best to start out a little more slow-paced when you’re first getting going so as not to cause injury. Same applies to your cats and these cat trees will help with that.
One more thing you can do for your declawed cat, outside of getting him a cat tree he can easily enjoy, is set up a cat safe outdoor area. Having some sun is really good for them and having some cat enclosures will really help ensure his safety while your feline friend is out having a good time.
So, as you can see, it really isn’t that hard to find a cat tree that will suit your declawed cat. I know the world of cat furniture can seem hard to navigate sometimes, and like they just don’t keep in mind that there are some cats who just don’t have what it takes to climb straight up but there really is hope! You’ll find just the right thing for you and your cats.
