English Oak Bespoke Cat Trees and Scratchers est 2017

Welcome to Sophisticated Scratch Handmade Natural Cat Trees and Scratchers



Sophisticated Scratch is a small bespoke business based in rural Devon.

Established in 2017 by Di Gallant a cat loving artisan that creates natural handcrafted cat trees and scratchers with English oak and applewood

Sophisticated Scratch cat trees and scratchers are handmade from seasoned English Oak that has fallen and apple trees that have finished producing fruit. These trees ordinarily would be firewood but I have given them a second life, they have gone through a loving process with natural oils enhancing their beauty just as nature intended.

These beautiful sculptures will enhance your home for all to admire while serving as a functional purpose for your cat to scratch, climb and sleep on. If you are concerned those little minxes will damage your master piece dont worry they wont its kitty proof and best of all you only need to buy once for kitty as Sophisticated Scratch trees will last their whole lifetime.




As an artisan of handmade cat trees and scratchers I do not mass produce and periodically I have a wait list.

 This truly is bespoke art from the west country !

Collection Welcome  




Cat Scratcher Range

It's normal for cats to scratch objects in their environment for many reasons: To remove the dead outer layer of their claws. To mark their territory by leaving both a visual mark and a scent – they have scent glands on their paws.

Cats also scratch to keep their claws sharp, exercise and stretch their muscles. If you fail to provide an acceptable area to scratch then your carpets, furniture and wallpaper may get damaged.

Cats prefer to sleep and hang out in places with good vantage points. It comes from their instinct to protect their themselves, and a high position for sleeping or resting gives them an aerial advantage for spotting any potential dangers around them.

Handmade from solid English oak to last a lifetime these trees start with one bed area and can have up to six depending on the limbs the tree has provided in its lifetime.
