I needed a cat tree for a window in a back room that was higher off the floor than all the other windows. This one fit the bill. It's sturdy and my kitty prefers the carpet-covered ones to the "fluff" covered ones that aren't very cushy. It took about 3 days of sitting outside to get rid of the usual "new carpet" smell, but I expected that. The only issue I had with this tree is that there were a LOT of loose threads to cut off before I could allow Klatu near it. But overall, we're both very pleased with it.
We received this cat tree mid October. I have 2 cats, one is 10 years old the other is 6 years old. The carpet started falling off at about 2 weeks and has been nothing but a mess to pick up after. I can't believe that I already feel the need to replace this after spending that kind of money. Very disappointed!
This is our second Frisco Real Carpet cat tree. The first one is a 32”. I was very pleased with the sturdiness of it & the generous perch sizes. So when I decided to order a taller one I went with this same brand & am again very satisfied for those same reasons. Unlike some reviews I had read the top post/perch on the one we received screwed in easily & tightly, & sits level with no wobble. The carpet is not especially thick, but I knew what to expect since I already had the other one. I personally am fine with it & definitively prefer the quality & look of the carpet over the faux fur fabric!
We bought this cat tree December 2021. Cats love it and use it daily. It's the perfect height. The amount of carpeting that's come off in one year is disappointing. It makes a mess. We've had much nicer cat trees that lasted YEARS. It's been difficult finding a good quality cat tree that isn't $$$. If they upgrade to better carpet, then it's worth buying.
How could one go wrong with this? Delivered to my door - two piece assembly. I simply had to screw on the top part. It was ready for use in 5 minutes! Sturdy as advertised. Well constructed.
I just received this cat tree yesterday. It is beyond wonderful! If you are on the fence about this one, put your worries aside. Go for it! Buy it. You will not be disappointed. I know it cost a little more, but it is so worth it! It is made of wood and real carpeting and sisal. It comes pretty much assembled. The only thing you have to do, is to screw the top segment into place. It only takes a minute or two at the most. Easy, breezy, lemon squeezy. You are good to go! Now I have noticed the hint of a little bit of a wobble when they go to the very top, but it is so very subtle, that it does not concern me one iota. I tend to be a worrywart about that thing in particular, but I do not feel the least hesitation in them using it or for me recommending it to you. It really is a winner, winner, chicken dinner!
This is my third purchase of this cat tree. My first two were beige. This last purchase was the gray. This tree is constructed with a thinner piece of plywood for the base(3/4 vs 1 inch) and the main post is thinner(8 inch vs 10 inch) in diameter. These two changes makes this tower unstable and the cats can knock it over easily. I am not sure if the tan colored trees are still being constructed with the thicker and sturdier wood or if all newly manufactured tree will now be flimsier than the originals. Very disappointed because of course I was pleased with the first two or I would not have purchased this third tree. This may not be an issue for small cats, mine are maine coons about 11-12 lbs.
Great purchase! My 8-lb cat loves the deep walls on the platforms so she can curl up and feel safe. Assembly was incredibly easy and the tree is sturdy enough for her to go up and down it and claw the posts. It did have a chemical smell at first, so I let it air out in my carport for a few days.
I bought this because I wanted a tall scratching post. So far one of my cats loves sleeping on the top level and looking down on everything. She’s a big kittie so it will fit a large sized cat. My other cat doesn’t seem to want anything to do with it. It wobbles slightly when my cat tries to jump to the top level but not too bad. Decent quality and material.
We needed one more set of steps to reach the top of our TALL cat tree and this fits the bill. They love curling up in the circles. And even Seniors can assemble !!
