I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned the size of the bolts they supply to put this together. If you rely solely on these then I think you're going to find it impossible to put together and if you do manage its not going to be tight enough. Luckily I had some spare from previous trees which fit.
Overall now it's up it does look great. The cats like it and the cushions are easy to take off and wash which is another plus. Overall not as solid as I'd expect for the price but time will tell!
This really is a very attractive cat tree once we actually managed, with great difficulty because of very poor instructions, to build it. Unfortunately, because I have 2 large Ragdolls, it was not sturdy enough for them. When they jumped on it the whole thing wobbled so much it terrified them and we had to dismantle it and return it. Zooplus did not quibble and I got the tree uplifted and money returned within days. Excellent service as always.
Very nice tree in the end, however, took hours to build as instructions were very misleading and screws are too small, the tree being so difficult resulted in it because wobbly but it's fine once the cats are on it.
Firstly I love the look of this cat tree but.....it took me hours to figure out from the "plans" how to put it together. I have since, this morning put it together and taken it down three times as no matter what I do it wobbles. My cat jumped up to the top basket and it moved so much he jumped straight out. YouTube video I found didn't really help much If anyone has any tips I would be glad of them because if I can't sort it I will have to reluctantly return it.
The cat tower itself is a beautiful one, it is not as sturdy as we would like but it does look well and all the cats approve of it. The hammock and the top bed seem to be the favourite spots, with the rest being ignored. We had a problem in that it was delivered without anything to put the tower together with but this was rectified quickly with zooplus. Overall it's a good buy but I woul like it to be more sturdy.
