Our Story

Catipilla came about due to the deteriorating health of an elderly family cat called Smudge. At the age of 15, she lost the strength in her back legs and could no longer jump up and access our home through a ground-floor window. Her quality of life was diminished and we felt that we had to do something. To help, we built her a DIY ramp which improved her daily life and allowed her to continue to come in and out of home as she pleased.

Soon, however, we noticed that all 4 of our cats loved climbing up and down the frame and spent a lot of time relaxing on the higher vantage points. In order to support them all with a more stable setting, we built a second design which also allowed light to come in through the window.

Our second design got just as much use as the first but the wooden structure was struggling to cope with the demand of all the cats and was soon deteriorating due to the elements. In order to find a safer and more permanent solution, we decided to work with a design and manufacturing company to develop Catipilla into what it is today. We didn’t know back then that a small idea would turn into a fully-fledged, wall-mounted cat range.

Since our launch at the UK National Pet Show in 2017, we have sold thousands of Catipilla products to cat lovers, vets and catteries across the World and we are only just getting started. Our focus on innovative design and delivering high quality products that help cats lead healthier and happier lives continues to be the things that get us out of bed every morning. For too long the cat market has been dull and played second fiddle; we are on a journey to change that. We thank all our customers and partners for their amazing support throughout our incredible journey.
