Like all ViviPet products, our newest product is packed full of features, meticulously designed and engineered. This is a minimalist design that is not only stylish, it is also a unique playground for your cats. It's perfect for apartments and compact spaces with unlimited configurations of the Cat Walks. The Cat Walk's unlimited configurations is perfect for apartments and small spaces.
The idea of the Cat Walk came to us when we visited Peter Cohen's House of Nekko. We came to realize that cats are a part of our life; they aren't only here to comfort us -- they live with us. Why not build a place for them?
To maximize the living comfort for both human and cats, we need to utilize the space above our heads and on the walls for the cats. With this structure, the cats are able to jump around and enhance their health and agility. Now, they use the spaces that we never use such as the doorway, wall corners, and many more. With the help of Peter Cohen, Founder of ZenByCat, we are able to bring this idea to life.
The high quality materials used in the Cat Walk is great for both human and cat use. We can proudly say that this is a one of a kind floating wall shelf and nothing on the market comes close. With the unique double L-shape joint, the shelf locks together securely and distributes the pressure to the shelves evenly rather than just the wall. The cats can jump all the day and you won't have to worry of about loose screws and damaged walls.
The Cat Walks can withstand the jumping and landing pressure of a cat, which can be up to 2.5x the cat's weight. We made sure that the Cat Walk can support that long-term fun without weakening the holes and joints.
We specially designed this Cat Walk for cats. That's why we use a unique double L-shape joint that can withstand the constant jumping and landing pressure from the kitties. All of the Cat Walks have been tested with weights, real life scenarios, and is able to hold up to 25 pounds. That’s 2 big cats or 128 tacos!
All shelves are painted with 4 layers of protective coating: prime coating, water resistant coating, color paint, and scratch resistant coating.
All of the shelves are customizable. They can be attached to each other to make a really long Cat Walk and/or you can add different add-ons, such as the hammocks, cat house, cat arch, and much more.
The installation is easy as pie. 6 simples steps will make you look super professional after installing the Cat Walk.

Risks and challenges
This is ViviPet’s first Kickstarter project. We've been in business for several years now and we have not disappointed anyone with our products (hopefully stays this way!) We are a growing company that has an amazing team behind us to care for our products and our customers.
In short, we are a pet lover company -- we know what we do best, to intertwine the health benefit, functionality with amazing design that one would mistakenly for a human product.
Supply Chain Risk: We have been working with a manufacture since we started the company, and both parties instantly connected and know exactly what each other want. They are very fast in delivering our orders. However, sometimes things happen and it's out of our control. Sometimes shipping containers of the products get stuck in the custom for longer than expected.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
