  1. Choose a location away from busy areas to minimize distractions and keep the cats feeling safe and secure.
  2. Measure the space to determine how large and how many pieces you'll need for the vertical cat wall. Make sure the space is large enough for all your feline friends!  A white cat is climbing on the wall-mounted cat shelves in the office.
