Creative ideas for a cat-friendly balcony in spring season

Use of vertical structures
Opt for wall shelves or cat trees that utilize vertical space. This allows your cat to climb, jump and survey its territory from a height, while maximizing balcony space.

Searching and scraping areas
Incorporate sand boxes or scratching mats to encourage natural digging and claw marking behaviors. These areas can also help keep your cat's claws healthy.

Secure decorations
Add decorative elements that stimulate your cat's curiosity without compromising their safety, such as hanging mobiles or lightweight balls that move with the wind.

Non-toxic aromatic plants
Incorporate plants like valerian or mint, which are safe for cats and can add an element of sensory discovery to their environment.
