Cat's Joy Ltd (Kissan Ilo Oy)

COMPANY STORY

Cats have been a part of my life for over 20 years. Over the years, I have tested different scratching and climbing trees of different prices. For years, I wondered where to get a tree that fulfills the cat's need for scratching and climbing; that would be of high quality, durable, unique, modifiable and that not take too much space. Could the cat tree be a stylish and decorative furniture at the same time? Why should I not manufacture the product myself?

Through my designer friend, I became acquainted with a designer carpenter who was inspired by the idea. As a result of our co-operation, we created a great product, Kissapuu cat tree. Now there is a sturdy cat scratching and climbing tree that can be assembled alone without permanent fastening. The Company, Cat's Joy Ltd (Kissan Ilo Oy) was born in July 2017.
 

Kissa (Finnish) means cat and puu (Finnish) is tree > Kissapuu Cat Tree.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

AGELESS DESIGN, FUNCTIONALITY & ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY 

We design and manufacture durable products of high quality using eco-friendly materials. The life cycle of a decorative and furniture-like product is increased by the possibility to tailor and choose the materials that suit your interior in the order phase. 

We strive to do our part in reducing the disposable culture and environmental strain. We still remember the time you had to save to buy the product you wanted. Often the acquisition gave joy for a long time. The cat also becomes attached to the furniture that lasts from year to year. Kissapuu cat tree is a product that lasts the cat's entire lifetime. Worn parts can be upholstered like an armchair of quality.

EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE - FOR ALL MEMBERS OF CAT HOME

In addition to the high quality product, we want to offer first-class service. Our goal is to provide excellent customer experience starting from thinking of making an order till the product has arrived to your home.

WELL-BEING & APPRECIATION OF CATS

We all have animal friends with whiskers and tails in our homes. Animal activation and well-being are important for us. We co-operate with Somalian cat association and animal protection associations Dewi ry (Turku area) and Kissakummit ry (Oulu area). We also support other Finnish animal protection associations and rescue cat homes (e.g.PirskatinKivaKoti/JollyGoodHome).

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Kissapuu cat tree designers are design, upholstery and carpentry professionals who are paid an appropriate compensation for their work. We also provide work for several other self-employed professionals. Thus, we contribute in creating domestic well-being by paying all business-related payments and taxes to Finland.  

We have been granted the Design from Finland Mark. We fullfill the new criteria of sustainability valid from 2020 onwards.
