You realize if they love to climb or have a favorite place to sleep or other special things they like to do. You can custom create a cat condo or other kitty furniture to easily match your feline’s purrsonality and temperament. So if they especially love to nap on towels, why not use towels as the fabric on the inside of the condo?
