“Cats are not squirrels,” she said. “If you take a look at a cat’s nail, it is hook shaped, made for climbing, but they cannot come straight back down the tree. They would have to come down backwards, jump down, or descend using a series of branches like stairs.”
When a cat pursues its prey or is being chased, it can climb up a very tall trees that don’t have any low-lying branches. And just like that, they’re stuck.
“This is precisely why, when creating vertical space for your cats in your own home, that we are sure to not create dead end spaces as they can be points of aggression in multi-cat homes and that we also create a way for them to descend, especially if we have provided them with a tall scratch pole.”
