I purchased this tree for my Bengal cat, "Mouse", and it was an instant success!! She immediately jumped in the little house before I had even assembled it!! She then decided to sit on my back whilst I was putting it together, and also sat on one of the shelves as I was screwing it in!! I could possibly have assembled this in under 20 minutes, had I not had the added help! The instructions are very clear, and if I can do it, anyone can!!! Once constructed, Mouse was all over it, popping her head in and out of the house, and went straight to the top platform!! The tree is very well made and sturdy. There were a couple of minor issues with the stitching, but nothing major!! I would definitely recommend this, especially for an indoor cat!! I will try to upload some photos.... :-)
Have owned it for several weeks, kitten loves it, but our older cat not so interested. Not as stable as I thought it would be, I think that is why the older cat is not so keen (it wobbles a bit). Quite difficult to put together as one of the screws wasn't long enough to connect the cosy den, luckily I had another screw that fitted.
Great quality for such a low price. After the order it took them 2 days to deliver to the UK. A must buy if you are looking for a medium scratch post. My Sphynx love it!
Really easy to assemble, apart from the fact that the cats wanted to help. They were all over it while I was trying to fix it together. Instant hit and very sturdy.
Excellent cat tree, great service, prompt delivery and easy to assemble. Good quality and sturdy. My Birman kitten loves it. We have had it a few weeks now and during this time he has doubled in size and the tree has been well tested. He loves it for sharpening his claws, rushing up and down and sleeping on the top two shelves. Does not wobble as have read some other trees can. Very good value for £44 although it is £39 now. Have added a couple of dangling toys which add to the fun he has on it. First buy from Zooplus and very pleased. Disappointed with free gift even though it was free! Kitty didn't even recognize treats as food, toy would have been better. Tree is great and would highly recommend it. Good for entertaining energetic kitten who somehow recognizes this as 'his' furniture.
I purchased the beige-coloured Trixie Alicante cat tree online on Monday night and it was delivered to Scotland on Saturday. It was easy to assemble - from delivery to complete assembly it took 20 minutes. I bought the tree mainly for my older cat, Mortimer, who is 13 years old and is just getting used to a new kitten, Chester, who is 9 weeks old and full of hyperactivity. I thought Mortimer might like to keep watch on the top tier but so far it is Chester who is showing the most interest in the tree and he is fearless at climbing - less so on the way down! I've placed the tree next to the couch so that he has a safety landing net - his paw-eye coordination isn't fully developed yet! The tree came in perfect condition and is warm and fluffy looking. It is quite sturdy. It only cost £37.50 from Zooplus and I'm very pleased with my purchase so far. I would recommend the product and the site to a friend. I have submitted photos of Chester and Mortimer on the tree to Zooplus.
My cat loves to climb and this tree is absolutely perfect for her. It was very easy to assemble and is very stable, even when she jumps from my wardrobe onto the top platform, and at £45 its a bargain.
I am pleasantly surprised with the quality of this tree. Usually the sisal rope from the others I had came loose very soon but I bought this one in November 2011 and it's been used non-stop by my 3 kitties. They love it and one of them likes to sleep on the top level. It was very easy to assemble and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to buy a tree not too big and not too small. I live in an attic and couldn't fit a taller one but this one is perfect.
its a good tree, we have it in the living room and it has a nice colour too. Not too high so it doesnt take over all the room. They love to go into the box. The best quality / price for a cat tree
Fantastic price! Fast delivery! And easy to put together! My Siamese loves his new cat tree. (As well as the box it came in) He loves jumping on the plat forms and scratching the posts. I was a little worried he would be too big for it, but the size is perfect and the cat tree is very strong.
This is a great looking, neat but sturdy little cat tree. My cat doesn't go up to the very top level as it's a bit small for her but the younger cat I sometimes look after does.
You cannot get a better deal than this cat tree and especially at this price. Easy to put together and stable doesn't take much space and my cat is never tired of playing on it. It was the first car tree I got her and it is still her favorite although now my home is full of them. Although I bought this tree in cyprus where I live for €120 I still don't regret buying it for she uses it daily and after so many months it still looks quite new. I
our cat Millie is over the moon with this scratching post,hopefully the door frames will get a rest, easy to assemble ,very good value for money!
I bought this tree based on the number of very good reviews and I have to say I am not disappointed. Although initially I did have trouble assembling it, once it was completed, my two kittens (Norwegians) took to it straight away. They do like to sneak up on each other via the hole in the top of the box and take a swipe at each other! This is quite a study tree, not too big, but I think my kittens will get a lot of use of out same.
I ordered this on the 14th Dec and it was delivered within the week. It was easy to put together and as soon as it was up my beautiful Maine Coon was up on the top she loves it up there. The other cat tree that we purchased from Zoo plus many many years ago had given great service and many happy hours of fun, I wanted a smaller cat tree and this one is just perfect, it's very sturdy as I was a bit worried about my Maine Coon using it but it's really solid and she loves it.Great value for money and I would recommend this to anyone that is thinking of purchasing one. I would also like to thank Zoo Plus for their great service.
i first bought a very small scratching post very late in my life as a cat owner and it has totally saved my stair carpets from then on, so i decided to treat my lot to this cat tree, and the small poste needed replaced as its worn out! this tree arrived quickly from Zooplus and is great quality and good value for money. thank you Zooplus
My cat loves this tree, it was easy to put together and very sturdy. My cat is a rather big breed and even he fit in the box and platforms! Good value from money!
I've had this tree for over 2 years and it's still going strong, despite a rather large Maine Coon and a kitten using it everyday. They run up and down and it never moves. The Maine Coon can easily fit in the den area, despite his size, and he is anything but delicate when he jumps all over it. They love using it to chase each other and swipe at each other from different levels, as well as a general scratch post. I have loads of fun watching them and don't know what we would do without it!
I ordered this on Sunday & it arrived this morning, Wednesday! Easy to put together & it looks splendid! Now, just waiting for the cats to come in from sunning themselves!
Bought it last week and as soon as i've got the delivery,i assembled it and all my 4 cats were on it! they love it so much.The quality is very good and well worth the money. Will definitely recommend.
I didi a lot of research online and in shops before deciding to buy this last December. We have 2 indoor cats so I wanted to make sure that they got exercise and sharp claws taken care of. The Alicante is perfect, we love it and more importantly, the cats love it! as soon as the first scratch pole came out of the box they were all over it. When we got it up they chased each other up and down, in and out of the little box, there's a hole on the top of the box as well as the side which I didn't notice when I placed the order, they love it cause they can sneak up on eachother from on top or the side! After hours of playing they settled on the platforms and snoozed for the afternoon. They have loved it every day since we got it, alternating between chasing and sleeping. The sisal also makes sure that their nails are kept trim and scrathing on our sofa and carpets has (almost) completely stopped. The medium size is great, it's not too big and fits into the corner of our living room, you hardly notice it. It's also very stable, our cats are big, one ragdoll and one maine coon cross so it has its work cut out! Best investment ever and much cheaper than what you find in the shops
We bought the Alicante cat tree six years ago for our kitten; who is now a thoroughly spoilt girlie. We have since been joined by two other cats and they have all had their use of the cat tree. Six years on it is looking very battered indeed and I am here to buy another. Astonished but pleased to find that it's still on sale; I paid £26 for mine in the sale six years ago and we've often said it was the best £26 we ever spent. When you see the price of cat-trees in PetsAtHome you simply can't believe the price at Zooplus. Even if we'd have spent 4 times the cost, for six years scratching play and fun, it would have been worth it!
I bought this in 2006 and now it's 2012 and it's still standing, and no one is more surprised than me. Granted the bottom pole pieces are well scratched but I've just twisted them slightly to give a new clean surface. I thought the plush on it would not survive but it has, generally covered in bits of rope. The kitchen is below my cat room and when he starts scratching you can hear the noise. I am so glad it is still being sold. A really good buy.
Bought this for my 3 month old kitten Hellie and she absolutely loves it. It's a good size for a smallish alcove. Can see how it's helping Hellie to develop her balance and jumping skills. Great product and very reasonably priced. My best mate is so impressed with it that she'd like a version she could play on too!!!
I bought one a few months ago for our 8 cats after their old outdoor one passed its use-by date, and what a brilliant idea it was! There can be as many as 6 of them occupying it at one time. Although it is an indoor tree, we have it outside for them on the paving in the back garden under a large garden umbrella; when rain threatens we protect it with the clear plastic cover of a portable & zippered 'greenhouse' - which fits perfectly. You'll frequently find them sleeping in and on it inside the cover, even when it's raining!! If I'd known back then that they'd all be so enamoured of it, I would have bought them the 'twin towered' one so all 8 could have had their own 'patch'. It's excellent!! I shall upload photos soon.
My two kittens love it and adopted it since they have been arrived at home. Great product!
This is great, my two were moving in before it was built and have stayed ever since, playing and sleeping on their tree
Bought one of these just over 6 years ago,with four very energetic cats time had taken it's toll so a new one was ordered. Zooplus had it here in 3 days put together in 10 mins so the same as last time,the only thing that has let it down is the quality of the sleeping box,the board used is not as good, and I can see in a few years repairs will have to be done. Overall still the best on the net and a lot lot less than in the pet superstores.
I wrote a review 5 years ago when I bought this tree. 5 years on it is still as good as new. I have 1 cat and she uses it every day to sit on to look out of the window. She also plays in the box and sleeps on the top platform. The only thing she does not use it for is scratching for this she uses my walls. This was a brilliant buy.
i was so excited to be getting this,cat tree,after reading all the reviews,and not one bad one i, surely thought my cat would love it,we have had it a week now and she has bearly sat on it,prefering the window sill or the bed or anything else for that matter...so it is with a heavy heart i have come to the conclusion,that she is spoilt...and she is gettin no more of my well earned cash on anything else. I myself if id have been a cat would have loved this and it come within 5 days ov ordering, it is sturdy and easy to put up,my partner did the honours,and if he can do it anyone can :) i guess u cant please every cat thats y we love em and thats y we r skint trying 2 please them, we r their servents :) sorry
its xmas morning, and dre has just been given this. he loves it. he's gone straight on, and is like a young child. money well spent for a cat that deserves it.
8 months old now and still using this cat tree everyday - playtimes are less gentle than before but the Alicante stands up to the test. Money well spent
I bought this from Zooplus 3 years ago when I got my grown up cat. She fell in love with it and frequently uses it for scratching, watching and sleeping. Last year we got a second cat who also took to it immediately and can often be found sleeping on it or in it. I have moved a massive 5 times in the last 3 years and the post has been taken apart each time. Last time I tried to pack it my little girl immediately knew this meant something and jumped on it as if to tell me that if it was going so was she! This is by far the best purchase I have ever bought for my cats and has been excellent value for money. It cleans up with a good hoover and a wash every couple of months and looks brand new again.
I have 3 very spoilt Munchkins, who are now just over a year old. This scratching post has been used from day one by all of them. They climb up it, sleep on it and argue over who is going to be on the top ledge! Excellent value, although it's used all the time it still looks great. Would recommend to anyone.
My boisterous kittens absolutely love this, they shin up and down the poles and leap out of it on their unsuspecting prey! The assembly instructions are a initially a little hard to read, but once you sort out the different length poles, bolts etc it really goes together quickly. The allen key is supplied with the product, and the only additional tools you may need is a small pair of pliers to hold a bolt still as you tighten the lower platform and a knife to puncture the fun fur over the bolt holes.
My daughter Ellie and her lovely husband Kevin are the proud owners of little Sammy, a beautiful Persian cross. He is a much loved and properly pampered kitten.We have just celebrated little Sammy's first birthday and, since his previous catpost was ever so slightly dog-eared, we purchased this super cat tree. Gran and Grandpa made our choice largely on the strength of other reviews and are we glad we did! It was love at first sight, once Sammy had stopped playing inside its packing box.The carpeting is so---soft and he bounded onto it as soon as it was built. Actually, it looks really nice and fits in well with their modern furnishings.This morning I hear Sammy has spent the night tucked up in its cosy cave.What a super purchase from an excellent company!Like our little angel, your cat needs one of these! Thanks Zooplus for a sup- purr purchase.
This is still being used by Teddy and Hannah - It has been a very good buy - solid scratching posts, places to rest and play. They still sleep in the snuggle box area sometimes or just play hide and seek. You and your cat(s) will not be disappointed with this cat tree.
Teddy and Hannah are enjoying the Alicante Tree and doing everything together in it. They love it for play and rest. Along with the Cat Dancer - a simple but effective toy, keeping them happy for hours. we've only had the kittens for 24 hours!
I love cats and kept them all my life mainly rescues. I have bought many cat trees but Ive got to admit this is the best one yet. My kitten and older cat love it. They play with each other but fall out over who is sleeping in the little house. Lucky enough it doesnt end in tears as my older cat cant fit in. Good value for money and the cats love it.
I wrote a review for this back in June 2008 and I must say its been the best product I've ever bought for my cats. Its still sturdy and in good condition after all this time. All my cats still use it for sharpening their claws on, sleeping on, and yes the top platform now gets used. The den also gets used to hide in and to play in by hiding their toys in it so they can fish them out. Fantastic buy, well worth the money and I'd recommend this to everyone who is looking for a cat tree!! Thanks again Zooplus!
