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.

Kissapuu is made in the world's happiest country, Finland (nominated in 2022 for the fifth time successively).

We strive to do our part in reducing the disposable culture and environmental strain caused by manufacturing any product. We still remember the time you had to save to buy the product you wanted. Often the final acquisition added to the joy. Even a cat becomes fond of long-lasting furniture. Kissapuu cat tree is a product that lasts the cat's entire lifetime. Worn parts can be upholstered like a quality sofa.

EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE - FOR ALL MEMBERS OF A 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.

WELL-BEING & VALUING CATS

We all have animal friends with whiskers and tails at home. Animal activation and well-being is important to us. We support several breed cat associations and animal protection associations in Finland, e.g. Dewi ry (Turku area), Hesy ry (capital area) Kissakummit ry (Oulu area) and Animal Shelter house Kattila (Hämeenlinna area).
