Custom Cat Purrrniture
2242 University Avenue
St. Paul, MN 55114


Web Site: www.purrrniture.com

Custom Cat Purrrniture was never conceived as a small business opportunity. I, like many I have met, have never been inspired by cat furniture available in stores. Most cat furniture is poorly designed and poorly built, being too lightweight or too small for a cat to fully utilize. Those reasons motivated me to spend a weekend trying to build something big enough and interesting enough so my cats would actually enjoy it. My approach was simple: utilize existing wood products to keep the cost low, and think like a cat. Having enjoyed the process and being rewarded by happy and grateful cats, I set out to build others. The sole motivation in these designs is to accommodate the cat.

Your Pet's Wellness Starts Here!

My first dog, the best dog ever, had horrible allergies. I repeatedly shot him up with steroids (which didn't work) and tested his thyroid several times a year (he was never hypothyroid). I also fed him substandard food and vaccinated him annually. He was fat, bald, red, and itchy all the time. One day a groomer suggested that I change his diet. Nothing else had worked, so I did. His symptoms cleared up overnight! That was my first insight that diet could make a difference. After that dramatic improvement, I started reading and studying and searching for any natural therapies or supplements that would make him live forever. My first dog was my best teacher.

The Cat Who Cried for Help: Attitudes, Emotions, and the Psychology of Cats

This book examines aggravating cat habits and undesirable behavior, and shows how modifications in such areas as diet, exercise, and environment cause remarkable improvements in the majority of problem cats. Divided into three sections, Dodman first tackles aggressive behavior, followed by emotional behavior, and compulsive cats. With examples from his own practice, Dodman intelligently communicates symptoms, treatment options, and helpful tips for prevention. Vital to his treatment is maintaining the cat's dignified and independent nature, an objective sure to please those cat owners irritated by certain kitty traits but concerned first and foremost for the health and well-being of their cats.
