Need help with this spiral screw please

We want to install some heavy duty shelves on plaster walls (for our cats to jump on). We bought these spiral screws at the local DIY shop and the seller said they would do the job. Looking at them now, we can't figure out how to use them Once we screw them into the plaster wall - where do we hang anything off them? shouldn't there be another part attached to them? This is all we got at the shop...

Any help and advice will be appreciated! Thank you all in advance!

They will work if they are long enough. 2" should do it. You screw those into the wall then put your screw into the middle of the anchor.
