FAQ

About Catssup

  • What is Catssup made of?
    Catssup is made of high quality steel, an alloy of iron with carbon. Powder coated steel gives the products an extra smooth and matte finishing while adding durability to the design. It is more resistant to corrosion and highly chip resistant. Topped with PET felt, a material made of recycled plastic bottles. It is soft, yet a sturdy and durable material for your cats to scratch and rest on. It offers a great acoustic performance and can be recycled at the end of its life.

  • How do I assemble the Dot Step?
    Simply slide the C-clamp into the slot of the dot step and lock it together with the screws. Then, place a magnetic felt on top.

  • How do I assemble the Cloud Lounge?
    The Dot Step can turned into a cloud lounge by just adding an extra piece in the middle and assembly it together.

  • How do I assemble the Climbing Tower?
    Attach the C-clamp onto the frame of the scratch post with screws, then fit in the sisal post and lock it on both ends. The sisal post can be replaced whenever it is worn off.

  • How do I attach the Felt Ball onto the Dot Step/Cloud Lounge?
    Simply hang the Felt Ball onto the gap of either side of the screw.

  • Where can I find assembly instructions?
    Assembly instructions can be found in your packaging. It's simple, don't worry!

  • What is the thickest surface that Catssup can be attached on?
    Maximum thickness: 40mm
    Minimum thickness: 15mm

  • My cat is huge and heavy. Is it safe for him/her?
    Catssup platform units are designed for cats that are below 7kg. Do not put objects that are heavier than 7kg on Catssup products.

  • Where can I install the Catssup products?
    Catssup can be installed anywhere with a flat surface, such as book shelves and tables. Before clamping the Catssup products on any surface higher than 100cm, please make sure the clamping platform is permanently and securely fixed to the wall with wall attachment devices. Otherwise, serious or fatal crushing injuries can occur from furniture tip-over.

    When using in conjunction with off-the-shelf products, e.g. shelving from IKEA, make sure the wall attachment devices are installed correctly as instructed by their respective product manuals. Stable platforms are crucial for the best performance of Catssup products.

    When you clamp the product on any horizontal platform that is wider than 45cm, always clamp the product near to the vertical member/support as possible.

  • How tight should I screw onto the platform to ensure the Catssup products are secured?
    Please do not excessively tighten the product on any platform and be careful not to damage your furniture during the installation. Regularly check for the clamps, screws and bolts, and ensure the products are firmly clamped on the mounted platform.

Your card issuer also may have declined your payment or put a hold on the card for fraud prevention. We recommend calling your card issuer to resolve the issue.
