Where can we buy cat furniture from Petrebels?
Do you have a showroom?
Yes! It is located on the Van Leeuwenhoekweg 17 in Schijndel (Netherlands), you can admire our entire collection here. Please let us know beforehand if you’d like sugar in your coffee…
How sustainable is Petrebels?
We find the environment very important, thus we apply a as sustainable as possible policy. Petrebels only works with factories that work in a sustainable manner and meet the legal environmental requirements from the country of origin. Furthermore we transport on water as much as possible to reduce CO2 emissions. We work with CO2 neutral companies, drink fair trade coffee and tea (really tasty!), our spaces are illuminated by led lights and we print as less paper as possible.
What’s that dog doing on your packaging and logo?
Well…. we didn’t figure that our yet ourselves 😉
Where can I write a review?
First of all, thank you for wanting to give us feedback! You can write a review under every product in our webshop.
I am looking for a cat tree, do you have a catalog?
Yes, we do. Each year we create a new catalog where you can find all of our cat furniture
Do you make and design all the products yourself?
We design each scratching post and cat furniture ourselves. That makes our products unique. And we also make our own products as much as possible. Unfortunately, that’s not possible with everything. That’s why we work with reliable (and sustainable) suppliers and monitor all delivered materials ourselves.
What is sisal rope and why is the quality of it so important?
Sisal is a natural product which rope is made of. We only use extra thick sisal with a diameter of 5,2 mm for our cat trees. Therefore our cat trees and cat furniture last a lot longer
Is the quality of plush also important?
Yes it is! It determines the lifespan of the cat furniture. Thus we only work with thick and qualitatively strong plush.
Why do you glue the sisal and the plush?
We have discovered that it is better to glue some parts, such as the sisal and the plush. Cats are therefore less likely to break the product, which means that the scratching posts last up to 30% longer than other scratching posts.
Sometimes there’s loose plush on the cat tree, why is that?
All of our plush is cut and mounted by hand. It can happen that there’s a loose piece of plush laying around on the cat tree. No panic, it has no effect on the quality or lifespan.
How heavy are Petrebels cat trees?
Our cat trees are heavier than the average cat trees. This is caused by the extra thick bottem plates we use. The exact weight is different for eacht cat tree or cat furniture – you can find this in the product description.
Why is a thick bottom plate important?
This is really simple. By using thicker bottom plates every cat tree and every cat furniture will be more stable. We only create quality products and therefore only use bottom plates that are 2 to 5 cm thick.

Petrebels cat trees
What is the difference between the Petrebels cat trees categories?
Each cat is different. There are small cats and big cats, active cats and lazy cats. Heroes and scaredy cats. And of course our Kings & Queens that demand luxury. Each of these cats have their own needs, thus we create different cat trees and cat furniture to make sure that there is always something suitable for the character of your cat. Here you can find a helpful overview.
Why is the height of a cat tree important?
Cats sharpen their nails several times a day and love to stretch out. This is only possible if the cat tree is high enough – a big cat needs a higher tree than a smaller cat. Tip: measure the cat with stretched legs before chosing a product. This way your certain it will be suitable.
What do I need to look out for when buying a cat tree?
There are not only different kinds of cats but also a lot of differend kinds of cat trees. Choosing one can be very difficult, but we’d love to help! On this page you’ll find everything about different characters and their matching cat furniture.
Do you sell spare parts?
Yes, these are available in our webshop. With each model you can download a instruction manual in the product description. Here you can see which parts you’ll need. Then you can email a photo of your cat tree with the required part so we can get started on it.
