It’s empty in here!
First ordered this six years ago, turns out its been updated and is now vastly inferior. The base is half the thickness resulting in a less sturdy cat tree. There are now four plush posts which are absolutely useless. There is no rope despite it being listed in the description. The "ball" is stapled on with one inch of string: impossible for a cat to play with. One of the screw attachments came off when assembling. More issues that I can't fit here!
I'm certainly not an expert on cat trees, this being my first one, but it worked perfectly. I initially bought it because I recently moved to a new place, and instead of full glass doors I have regular windows, so I wanted something for my little Cleo to be able to both play and perch high enough to gaze outside. She loved it instantly, has been using it daily ever since I put it together, and the tree itself shows no sign of damage. Worth every penny.
Bought for two adult Siamese, I thought they would like the different levels. Put it together today, assembly quite easy but hole to fix house is in wrong place, sits off centre (saw this in review from 2014). Not much turning room for large cats to get from lower level to next level. Entrance to house is small, I am thinking of getting rid of it. There is not much padding on the paw shaped level for old bones. The boys have not shown too much interest yet, will see if it changes.
They haven't stopped using it since we put it up. They sat watching in anticipation while we assembled it!
finally found a cat tree and scratch polos that actually is solidly made and doesnt fall apart a few hours later, i have a large Maine Coon kitten (15mths old) and he throws himself at it then looks very pleased with himself
This is an excellent cat tree, sturdy and robust and very much in use all day long. The only thing I would change is the 4 bottom posts are NOT sisal, they are covered in plush which was ripped to shreds and hanging off in a matter of days and they were scratching away at the cardboard tubes. I replaced them with 4 used sisal covered posts from a previous cat tree and it is going strong almost a year later, but would have been unusable if I hadn't had the spare posts.
Arrived this morning and for the last 24 hours they've played non stop on it! And they're not exactly the lightest of kitty's x
Dulcie hasn't come down from her new tree since we put it up 3 hours ago! It's sturdy, and very stable so it doesn't seem to need anchoring to the wall either. Really good quality!
Only took about 30mins to set up, real easy. Looks great all set up, so soft. Cats love it too, which is always great! Sprayed some catnip spray on it to lure him in though lol.
My cat loves this but as I feared he has destroyed it in 2 weeks. When I ordered it I phoned to ask if it would be possible to have all the poles covered in sisal (rather than all but the bottom 4) . Unfortunately this wasn’t possible and he has already shredded them . I can’t blame him , how would he know 6 posts are for scratching but the others are delicate? Apart from it looking a mess he loves it, I will have to cover the posts myself with sisal rope .
Excellent quality, stabile, spacious. Well spent money!
Easy enough to build. Cat ignored for many weeks. I sprinkled cat nip on it and now he loves it.
Got this as our previous cat tree had gone through enough abuse! Took me about an hour to put together and I positioned the sisal covered poles towards the front as they would be easier for the cats to get to and less damage to the 'fur' covered poles as we have it next to a wall. I use the bottom hammock to hold their toys and they love sitting up on the paw perch and sleeping in the upper bunk. Word of advise: Do not get the black tree if you have white furred cats!
This cat tree is great and good quality. Very sturdy and a lot of places for my two kittens to go they love it!
I have bought two of these as they have been a big hit with my two rescued semi ferals. They choose to spend every single night on these even though they have the option of sleeping on "ground floor beds. They are very sturdy but unfortunately the beds at the top are proving to be not very long lasting and the sides are getting a bit floppy and thread bare. I have asked ZooPlus if I could buy replacement beds but regrettably they do not sell these so basically a new tree has to be bought :(
My 2 five year old tabby cats have been through quite a few cat trees in their time, but this one has to be one of the best. It was really easy to put together and stands really sturdy. The posts are all the same length which will enable me to swap them round when they have scratched the life out of them and the velvet bed/paw seating post are very soft. Cats love it and very good price!
This tree is bigger than expected. It is hard for the cat to climb but even harder to get down as there is not enough space to jump onto on the lower parts. Good product all the same, very soft with nice places to sleep. Once our kitten is bigger and less scared I can see it being his favourite thing.
Both my cats love this, it takes up little floor space but has many different beds and scratching posts, easy to put together and all posts are same size so can switch positions depending on where cats like to scratch
This is a fantastic item for your cat. My Bengal loves it. She plays on it, uses the house, scratches it and lives relaxing and demanding attention from it. It also looks great in the room, luxurious and was also affordable. Very pleased.
Really pleased with this cat tree. Very good quality and easy enough to build. It's pretty sturdy and doesn't take up too much room. My 2 cats love it. They have to take turns though of the big padded penthouse suite :). Would definitely recommend.
I am very pleased with this cat tree. We ordered it for our 2 cats, that are both quite big and it holds really well for them and is very sturdy. Delivery came very quickly.
I bought this tree 2 years ago and the material was thick and good quality.I decided to purchase a second and the material is now so thin that it ripped in three places when I had to undo one of the poles that I put in wrong hole due to the poor instructions, the den is also cheaply contructed(cardboard inside) the old one w solid and has a nice padded mat inside. My cat seems to like it but I'm very disappointed especially as I have the older model that is so much better. Feel I have overpaid.
So far it looks like a fairly sturdy tree, which was the main reason I chose it. I have 5 cats, 3 of whom are both boisterous and large (5.5-6.5 kg). This tree has a large square base, and thick poles so it is hard to knock it over. Some negative points: the covering material is quite thin, there were already torn and frayed bits on the first day. The posts had staples sticking out, causing scratching. Also would have preferred all sisal posts, as I know the fabric covered ones won't last long.
Unpacked the box only to find that the 'roof / ceiling' of the house was not attached properly. The front edge had been glued on but the sides and back had the large metal staples (think staple gun size) sticking and out the roof panel falling inside the house. The material covering the walls was not attached all the way round either. We removed all the staples, stuck the material down and nailed the roof on. This then made us check every part for staples and we had to remove 2 others.
Dark blue option with 6 sisal and 4 fabric poles. We have two cats a lively 1year old and an older 9year old. Both are between 4-5kg It arrived this morning and they have already "killed" one of the balls, we had expected this as they have never lasted in all the cat trees we've owned. They are able to fit on each of the platforms which was our biggest concern This was our best option given the budget, ideally we would've preferred all sisal posts. i feel like this one will last our cats for several years due to the construction and thickness of materials used
Having written a bad review because of inaccurate descriptions and faulty parts, I have to say the customer service was brilliant. the website was updated straightaway and I was sent a replacement part, free of charge.so I didn't have to dismantle the whole thing. I'm now very happy with my cat tree and with Zooplus..
I purchased this tree for our new BSH kitten, and she just loves it, no scratched furniture and a very happy cat who sleeps sometimes on the top after watching the garden, or gets in the house after being outstared by the fish!! She hasn't found the hammock yet, but without doubt this is a superb hit.
This tree is fantastic...very strong and sturdy...my cat Percy loves it. Ideal in front of a window.
I have purchased this for my 8 Birmans and they love it, excellent value for money, sturdy and well made, if anything like the other one i had from here it will last for years!. Happy me, Happy cats!
This cat tree is really good quality! We have two cats that are very energetic and love to sleep in high spaces. They both love sleeping on both high perches. One problem is that they don't use the bottom bit at all so it's a shame I can't turn that bit in to something else but overall the tree is really good value for money! Better than any other one I've seen.
I ordered this cat tree for my kitten. It is brilliant and very sturdy. It took me 37 mins to assemble and it comes with everything so there isn't anything additional thing you need to buy. My cat loves it, I can only recommend it. Excellent quality for the price.
I was really concern about the the quality because on of my cats it's 5.5kg, but this cat tree is ideal! Very sturdy and they loved it! They even take turns to see who is going to sleep on the top bed. It smells a bit funny, but it should go away with time
The cat loves it, the quality is great and very sturdy. It was easy to build (I was at work so my lovely missus did it and said it was easy). can't recommend this enough.
Very impressed with this - not just the product, but the service from Zooplus. Well packaged and put together in about 40 minutes, which given we're a bit challenged in the Allen key dept was a big success in our house. Within seconds, all three cats were checking it out. and they love it.
My cats love this cat tree! It's really tall so that feel like they can scope out their area. They love to play on it and it's not the No.1 sleep spot. The cat tree is really really sturdy. I was worried it would be a bit wobbly but it's great. It looks good too. I'm 5"6 and it's taller than me. Really really pleased with this purchase :)
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this cat tree! Very sturdy and no unpleasant smell either. Both of my cats were instantly intrigued, and I can only recommend this cat tree.
Excellent, I looked every where for a strong cat stand, and this one is great! I have 2 cats and one is a it over weight lol and it's strong enough for her, very happy would really recommend, thanks zooplus
...to high end cat tree. The assembly was child's play. Only took about 20 minutes to put up. And the smell is very agreeable. No unpleasant-smelling upholstery. Our two cats took this cat tree by storm. The toy mouse has lost almost all resemblance to a mouse after just one week.. We had some doubt initially over whether our cats would fit into the little cave, given they are both around 5kg heavy. But Mia (5.5kg) even fits through the little window without getting stuck. Let's see how long it stays with us. Satisfied to say the least so far!
Excellent Quality as usual and prompt on time delivery service from Zooplus as always...this is the second one of these i've bought in the last 3 years, they last VERY long & they clean well too..it's also tall.. I'm 5'8 and its taller than me. It's definitely one of the best cat trees on the market. Very Easy to put together just make sure you check your using the right size screws in each hole (have a ruler or measuring tape near by just to be on the safe side) it only took me about 30 mins. A quick tip... you might need someone to hold the posts while you screw it together to make sure it screwing in properly and not just spinning. Would definitely Recommend to all.
Takes a bit of time over New Year, that's just how it is. My cats were sniffing the open box, and I have to say no bad or chemical smells, only the smell of chipboard. All the parts fit and are in working order, and the instruction manual is clear and easy to read. Quickly put together even with five cats fighting for my attention. It was fun to build, it looks good, and my cats took to it immediately.The paw shaped platform is currently the favourite. I can't say anything about the longevity of the tree yet, but full marks so far.
