Can cat wall furniture handle a cat-tastrophic cat-plosion?

Cat wall furniture's weight capacity can vary significantly depending on the materials used, design, and how it's mounted to the wall. Here are some general guidelines:

1. **Shelves and Perches:** Many cat shelves and perches are designed to hold between 20 to 40 pounds (9 to 18 kg). Some heavy-duty models can support up to 40 or 50 pounds (18.1 to 22.7 kg) when properly installed into wall studs.

2. **Climbing Systems and Wall-mounted Trees:** These can often support more weight, especially if they are designed to distribute the load across multiple mounting points. Some systems are rated to support over 100 pounds (45.4 kg), assuming they are mounted correctly and the wall structure itself can support that weight.

3. **Hammocks and Beds:** Wall-mounted hammocks and beds usually have a lower weight limit compared to shelves, often around 20 to 30 pounds (9 to 13.6 kg), since they are designed for resting rather than active play.

4. **Material and Installation:** The weight capacity also heavily depends on the material of the furniture (e.g., solid wood vs. particle board) and the hardware used for installation. Using drywall anchors can help, but for maximum support, attaching the furniture directly into wall studs is recommended.

To ensure safety and durability, it's crucial to:
- Check the manufacturer's specifications for weight limits.
- Properly install the furniture according to the instructions, ideally into wall studs.
- Consider the weight of your cat(s) and their activity level. If you have multiple cats that might use the furniture simultaneously, you'll need something that can support their combined weight.

PETOMG offers solid wall anchor kits and drywall wall anchor kits for the installation of cat wall products. Ensure that it is suitable for most wall types while improving the load-bearing capacity of the product.

If you're unsure, it's always a good idea to opt for sturdier options or consult with a professional for installation.
