This is really cute and can be assembled 5 or so minutes. I’m not sure my adult cats can use it (they also seem unsure about the stability) but it’s great for my little kitten. He’s having a lot of fun playing with it. It’s a nice scratcher for the price and I love that I can just recycle the cardboard when it’s time for disposal. My one complaint is that the bottom scratcher is supposed to adhere to two edges of the base with double sided tape. The scratcher was not cut to the right size, so it could not reach two opposing walls with the tape. This might be why mine is a little unstable.
My wife and I love purchasing these cardboard scratch boxes for our two cats. They love sleeping in the different levels and it is a great size for our home. The only thing is that it fell apart in less than a week. Our cats do scratch at it, and we do expect it to fall apart at some point, but this kit didn’t come with tape reinforcements or construction that folded into itself to create a stronger structure. The one that we have purchase from major retailers usually last about 4 months, then we start taping it up in spots where our cats pick at. This one literally deconstructed and fell over in one week of purchasing it. I am about to tape it up and reinforce the edges to make it last longer, but this one looks like it is going to be torn apart within a month. We pay less for our other “taco trucks” that we have purchased from other retailers. Those have double sided tape strips and extra things to reinforce the structure. Our cats are not big cats, so it shouldn’t be this fragile. Overall cute design, just needs some extra tape or cardboard structure beams.
The last cardboard house had a good run and it kept Mary Mary, the horrible cat, very happy and occupied as she played, slept, scratched, and chewed it up too shreds. Alas I had a mother coming to visit so needed a pretty, new house for the little heathen. This cactus house fit the bill. It goes with the theme of our room (cactus and llama) and is super cute! I put packing tape around the holes to slow down the demolition expert but as you see in the picture she will not be deterred from her life's calling, chewing her cardboard houses to confetti. The second story is a nice touch, the less terrible cat, Sweet Potato, likes to hang out up there. This house so far is withstanding cat brawls and impacts with only a little packing tape reinforcement. 10/10!
I didn’t expect a crazy sturdy structure being cardboard, but this is disappointing none the less. The slots to slide in the adjoining parts aren’t fitted snuggly and the double sided tape included on the leveled parts doesn’t stick, thus making an altogether cactus that is unstable and not be very sturdy. I’m sure my cats will enjoy it, but can’t say how long it’ll stay standing with the cheap quality… :/
My daughter loves these houses for her cats so I decided to try it out. This house was easy to assemble. I reinforced it a little so it will hopefully last longer. It seems very sturdy. My cat loves it. It is very attractive.
I LOVE it but unfortunately my cats destroyed it in a day which sucks because they did enjoy going in it and chilling. But now it’s destroyed which sucks but I do love it and they liked to chill and scratch in there
It barely stayed together a week. And reminded me of the website regretsy where they spoof on terribly shoddy crafts.
Super cute and surprisingly sturdy! I didn’t realize how big it is. My cats are super rough on these cardboard houses but this one is holding up! Although these are cardboard and don’t last forever they are totally worth it to keep them from scratching the furniture!
This item is SUPER-CUTE!!! We loved the scratching pads, and the kittens were happy with it as a new cardboard house to destroy…. Yet please be realistic in your expectation if you order one. This is a $20-some odd dollar cardboard item; the most valuable parts are the scratchers; which all four of our cats love!… The outside was east to put-together; yet did not fit as tightly as one would hope; as well, the design is smart; and relatively safe for kitty, presuming your cat is a fair weight. When I put ours together, I used clear packing tape to reinforce the tabs, and cross-bars. Mine didn’t have all the double-sided sticky tape the instructions indicate; so I used packing tape to make it work… For what I spent, I got what I expected. After all, it’s about the kittens, and their happiness with a new toy!!! …not about the amount spent. Obviously, if you want something long-term for your $$$, you’re going to spend more…. I bought a fistful of these for my babies to destroy; and enjoy while they do!!!
I purchased this cat house for Christmas. My daughter put it together for her cats. Within one evening the roof had collapsed into itself. We put it together again, the same thing happened. I could not hold the weight of a cat. The house was a real disappointment.
