Weve only had this for about a month but Im happy with it! I agree with one other review that the scratchy posts do make it a bit uncomfortable to put together, but otherwise I thought assembly was easy. So far, Harper hasnt really used any of the available surfaces for scratching but hopefully she does in the future. She fit perfectly snuggled up on the top, the photo attached is just her sitting but she takes up the entire surface of the top platform when she is laying curled up, and she is a small cat so Im not sure a chonkier kitty would fit well? Hasnt used the hideout portion either which other reviewers had complaints about so I cant speak to that either. TLDR I would buy it again! Works great for a small cat.
Our newly adopted 5-month-old kitten is very rambunctious. She was using our furniture for scratching her nail. We got her this cat tree and she loves it. She entertains us daily with her anticks as she climbs up to the top and plays with the ball. She loves the scratching posts. The cat tree is sturdy. It comes unassembled but is easy to put together. The instructions are very clear. Good value for your money.
Overall this cat scratcher is amazing for the price! One downside is that the scratching posts and board are very pokey, which made it difficult to assemble. I hope this does not become more of an issue as our cats scratch them. The other issue is that the tree is wobbly. It comes with some wall brackets that attach to the top stool, but that would not work for us. We ended up looping zip ties around two bottom posts and through two eye screws to prevent the tower from toppling. See pictures for reference! Overall, we have two excited cats who are ready to enjoy their new tower!
We originally ordered this for our apartment in Astoria, Queens years ago. We had another in between, and recently repurchased because our 10 year old Nebelung cat really enjoyed the scratch pad, in addition to the 2 perches. She doesn't go into cubby ever, but she will sit on it.
We adopted a 7 month old kitty on Jan 13th, who didnt know anything but the Humane Society she was born in. Bought this cat tree and tried to put it together soon as it came in a week later. Directions were a bit lacking for example there are 2 different sets of brackets but doesnt really explain the difference between the 2, also says on directions to optionally use wall mount to attach scratch board. There is the negatives, which is why 4 stars. Now the positives. Once we got it put together and tightened up it is very stable and actually has some weight to it. Rope for claws completely cover each column. Cubby hole is hardest thing to put together but it is perfect size for kitty. When we got it together yesterday afternoon Lilly wasnt sure what to think but by 6am this morning it is her playground. My wife is 4ft 11 and when on top platform Lilly is taller than my wife. Lilly likes to take running start and jump up halfway, whap the ball jump down and use rope colums to climb all the way back to top. All of this in a matter of seconds. A very good purchase only downer is kinda difficult directions but once figured out this cat tree is very well built.
lots of choices for the cat to claw, and he loves sisal. The only downside is that he is a large cat, but still manages to sit on the perches to look out the window. He likes to snuggle inside the condo, so he does fit.
I've bought multiple of these cat trees of different sizes over the last few years. My cats enjoy them to where we have one in half the rooms in the house. They are very easy to put together, very durable(we have 2 we bought a few years back still in use) and they take up very little space. Highly recommend!
I was very excited to get this cool new cat tree for our cat for Christmas but I am a bit disappointed. It was easy to put together and I love the size but it hasn’t even been a month and the fabric on the poles are already coming apart. For some reason this cat tree only has the rope in the middle of the poles and a very thin carpet-like material on the top and bottom of the poles. I’ll probably have to buy my own rope and hot glue it on. The last cat tree I bought lasted a good 2 years before the poles started coming apart.
The platforms are to small for my cats, I was so disappointed. They like to lounge on the perch but they can’t even sit and get comfy. It’s well built and no other problems but I won’t be able to use it for my cats.
I bought this in June 2020 and it’s held up pretty well. I didn’t have a hard time putting it together at all. The fabric and toys have stayed put on the product for quite a while but within the first year both my cats tore up all the sisal rope to shreds. I’ve tried repairing it myself since it’s been a well loved and sturdy cat tree. I would’ve fully loved it if the top part didn’t attract so much hair that sticks to it impossibly. No vacuum, brush, lint roller or hair remover will get the fur up. Essentially I am forced to repair it or get a new one so I wish the fabric was a bit better on it.
