It’s empty in here!
I ordered this recently, on sale. I am fostering a mother cat (age unknown) and her 2 kittens that are approx 7 weeks old. All three cats seem to love this, although they haven't really used the hidey-hole, but I have only had this tree for 2 days. All the cats love the dangly pom-pom (it is a pom-pom, not a mouse as one of the other reviews said they got), and the pom-pom came ready attached to one of the platforms. I found it easy to put together (screws & allen key are included so no need for your own tools), and I also managed to slip the screws through the fabric of the two platforms, so they are 'hidden'. The mum cat likes sitting and lying on the highest platform and has used the scratching posts a few times. The kittens like to use the lower platform to get on & off my alcove shelf (built in stone plinth by the fire-place), and have spent quite a bit of time batting the pom pom about and using the platforms to aid their games (play-fighting!) Definitely think it's good value for money, at the sale price.
I have three adult cats who use the scratching posts every day and also enjoy sleeping on it (but they do hang off it slightly). My huge ginger tom can actually fit inside the box! I have found that a lot of products seem to be just designed for kittens so this is just what I was looking for for my cats.
My 8 week old kitten loves this tree. She's just about managed to figure out how to get to the top shelf. The sisal posts means she's not touched the furniture at all, and she loves scrambling her way up. Definitely good value for money. My only disappointment is that after only a day she's already managed to chew off the fluffy ball that dangles from the top shelf. Perhaps this could be made of something more substantial than elastic string...?
As soon as I opened the box today, my cat was watching and as soon as I put it together - it only took me less than 5 minutes - my cat loved it straight away. Played on it for ages, he also loved the soft carpet. It is a good and worthwhile buy!
bought it for my 2 9 week old kittens,soon as it was put together they were playing on it,scratching post is great as it means they leave my furniture alone. well worth the money
I got my item yesterday my two cats took to it well they are small cats so this is great for them. only they both want to get in hide but they cant both fit in bless them but I am very happy with this. Easy to put together. thank you
This tree is worth every penny, about half the price of similar ones on other sites or in shops. My 10 weeks old kittens fell in love with it, within minutes it was put together.
The tree was easy to assemble and feels solid. My indoor cat has taken to it straight away. She only uses the hideaway area occassionally but frequently scratches at the posts and can stretch right out if she stands on the floor and reaches up to the top post. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone with cats.
I'm very glad I got this. My cats all love it. We took in 2 nervous rescue cats (a mother and son) and have been trying to help them settle in to there new home. They both took to it strait away. Especially the son who loves playing on it, he pulled the ball of straight away but still plays with it. It came flat packed but was very easy to assemble (though I had to cut 2 small holes in the fabric for the screws to go through). Its a good size, looks smart and a great price.
I'm so glad I bought this. On arrival I was dissapointed to find it broken however zooplus had a new one delivered in plenty of time before my new kitten came home and I've not been dissapointed since. The product is non offensive to look at as it is so neutral it works in any room, the size is non intrusive and best of all my kitten loves it, he immediately made himself at home on it. The ball is still attached and he loves to hit it around. Time will tell if this will see him into adulthood but for now it's s perfect size.
Heidi loved the tree instantly. She couldn't wait for it be unwrapped and assembled! She spends lots of time in/on it and plays with the ball every day. The ball of course was off after day 1 but she still enjoys running around and playing with it. Well worth the money.
I received this tree this morning and my 3 month old kitten is absolutely loving it. A brilliant buy at this price and it was so easy to put together. Highly Reccommended..!!
Bought this last year & it was pleasantly larger than expected for the price of approx £15,it survived 3 cats but sadly my 5 yr old daughter decided to stand on it,it is so sturdy,it almost survived!!
I bought this for my two 10 wk old kittens back in July 2010 for around £15 in the sale, when it arrived I couldn't believe how big it was for the price I paid! very sturdy and still standing to this day despite my 2 playing with it pretty much every day!! The fluffy mouse came off after a month or so but this didn't bother me or the kittens - it had taken a beating!!! One of mine even sleeps in the box at the bottom during the hot summer months so well worth the investment as both a cat tree and basket for us! Would definitley recommend to anyone who is thinking about buying a cat tree but not too sure if there cat will take to it, especially if you can get it in the sale!!!
Larger than expected yet good size for my flat. Extreemly well built & strong plus easy to assemble (note flat head bolts for platforms). Once kittens took to it by placing appropiately it has proven an excellent activity site & play area for sharp claws & adventurous attitudes. Big enough to grow into too. Worth every penny.
I brought one of these for my 3 cats and they have hours of fun on it. Its just the right size for my living room and provides the well needed distraction from my dining room chairs. Thr price is awesome as i have seen the exact same thing on another site for £40, i couldnt believe it when i found it on here for this price. Its a must have for your beloved moggy
good little tree, sleeps one really, i just prefer the bigger trees!
My kitten Barney Bear just loves it he uses the scratcher and plays on it all the time money very well spent...
I bought this scratching post for my 3 kittens, I thought it might be too small as they got older but one year on they are still in love with it. My British Shorthair lilac boy is really too big for the cave but still loves sleeping in it with his feet hanging out! Would recommend to anyone.
Great buy for Lucy. She immediately scratched the posts, even before I set it up. She loves jumping form platform to platform as well as trying to climb onto the highest one directly from the pole. This makes for excellent enetertainment for her and us. The ball is still there 2 months later, I've attached other hanging toys from it as well. Would definitely buy this again!
This is an excellent product that my two kitty's loved. But the downside is that you must cut the mouse off. As I have experienced the cats tails getting stuck and then the cats dangling. Luckily they was found before serious consequences. Overall the kittens loved it.
Looks great. Cat has lots to do. its soft and sturdy and easy to put together. would buy another for other rooms. excellent product
Sorry to say, but this cat tree is an average quality. For price I paid, it’s OK. I wouldn’t pay more for it, than sales price. It’s a little bit unstable. Sisal rope isn’t wrapped around very firmly. The platforms could be a little bit larger and the box is too small, even for small breed adult cat. I hope that the tree will last for some time and then will buy something better for my kitty.
Bracken and Pippin started playing with this before it was even out of the box. Once I'd put it together (easy, takes 2-3 minutes) the mouse's fur was flying and Pips had scratched the post and taken up station on the top platform. Fits neatly in the kitchen by the radiator so now the cats have a vantage point next to their food cupboard (VERY important) where they can monitor my culinary and domestic activities in comfort. We rate it a very good buy.
My three cats love this tree, They play on it daily, After purchasing many trees in the past this was the best value one by far. Plus the service and delivery was great.
this product is just fab, its compact, neutral colour and is so easy to put together. the only niggle i have is that it has an opening at front and to the left hand side (not shown in photo) so its not quite the little hidey hole i thought it would be and my kitten didn't like it, so all i did was turn it round so the front opening was against the wall and my kitten now goes into it via the side opening and now can't get her out of there - she loves it
So good I have now purchased 3 of these. I am a fosterer for a local animal rescue centre and have a constant stream of cats and kittens staying with me. They all appear to love this - they can hide in the box, play with the dangly toy, sharpen their claws and use the platforms as vantage points or to lie on. My old cat uses it as a step ladder to reach the window sill!
my kitten loves it she is 9 weeks, ever since i got this she been jumping, playing with white mouse (which looks like ball in piccy) and has hours of fun. she amuses herself on it. she plays and sleeps on it. great buy for good price xx
This sturdy cat tree den arrived very quickly and was up and in use after just 10 minutes. My lovely blue kittens are thrilled with their new toy and love to sharpen their nails (leaving the sofa alone now)It's such good value that I would reccomend it to anyone.Thanks Zooplus.
I found this product excellent value for money. It was bigger than i thought it would be and both my cats started using it as soon as i'd finished putting it together. They both lay on it when they are not playing with the hanging ball. The only trouble with putting it together is having to make holes in the material to put the screws through, but it was really easy to poke a pair of scisors through.
My ferret loves this! He's currently sat on the top perch dangling his head over the side trying to catch the mouse toy! He hasn't left it since I put it together, which must be good since most ferrets have a very short attention span!! It's a pretty good size for a small tree, reaching almost up to my hip, its not overly heavy either so very mobile. And for £11 this is fantastic!
Our two kittens love this product, its big enough for the two of them not to fight over the same part but small enough to fit into the living room without it taken over and blends in being a natural colour. Fantastic value for money!
This is a great little scratching tree that I keep at the foot of my divan bed. It has served the purpose of preventing my three moggies from attacking the base of my new bed, which cost me a fortune last year! So glad I bought this item.
This product is a great price (as some scratching posts are extortionate) and is a very reasonable size, the cats love it both my nine week old kitten and my 11 month old! the bad: the ball you see hanging in the image is actually a white mouse. you have to punch the holes in the fabric to screw the posts on ...which is fine untill you put the tops on the posts then you need to put a slit over the hole do that you can hide the top of the screw once tightened also the fur sheds slightly but overall its a great product that the cats enjoy and its affordable which is the main thing!
WE HAD A BASKET FROM YOU LAST YEAR AND WAS REALLY PLEASED WITH THE QUALITY AND PRICE. THE CATS LOVED IT. I ORDERED THE TREE OASIS FOR OUR KITTEN OF 7 MONTHS. I KNOW OUR KITTEN WOULD HAVE LOVED IT. HE DISAPPEARED LAST TUESDAY, AND HAVE BEEN SEARCHING NON STOP EVERSINCE. THE TREE HAS PRIDE OF PLACE IN OUR HOME FOR IF AND WHEN HE COMES HOME. THANKYOU FOR TOP QUALITY PRODUCTS.
My two 8 week old kittens love it! As soon as they saw it they were climbing up the scratch posts, going in and out of the bottom area and pouncing on each other and attacking the mouse, they sleep on the platforms too so all round a brilliant buy, and it was a good price for what you get and easy to put together, what more can you ask for? I would definitely recommend this product.
My 2 13wk kittens LOVE it they hide in the base and play non stop on the platforms and with the mouse! It's sturdy and great value for money as we as being discreet and not taking over the room.
l bought this item based on the reviews that l had read but upon receiving it l was disappointed it was easy to put up but upon doing this we noticed that the mouse toy was broken. We did get good service and was given a small refund but still doesn't reflect that its now second hand the item is a good size bigger then what we thought but l found that bits of the material on the platform's keep shedding so l have to hoover it daily. Its worth the money and my kitten does use it but please make the elastic stronger if you are going to sell this as a kitten item.
This is a great tree for the money. It's a little too small for big cats to sit comfortably but is great as a gentle climber for older cats and kittens. Good window height for us too. The only complaint is that the material is so soft that the cat tends to slide while moving on it and that puts him off using it a little bit. Other than that, a great little tree, easy to assemble and with good, quick service.
I got this at the weekend and found it easy to assemble. However I did not place the top perch on it as it would bring my kitten into the reach of too many things, also I find that she can stretch out better on the scratching pole without that to block her.It is a little taller and wider than I had expected.My kitten's very pleased with it though and so am I.
