I bought this cat tree for my 3 cats. After a few months it started coming apart, and I saw that underneath the rope was cardboard. Today the highest platform broke, it snapped from the base, which is also made of cardboard. It didn't even last a year
I used to have this cat tree many years ago and kept it until it was completely worn down. It lasted for 3 years.
I went to buy another one a few months ago and it hardly lasted me at all. I think they have started using a different material. It looks less sturdy and has unraveled much more easily. It's a shame because I really liked the old one, but the new materials have made it worse :(
I have two cats, the big one (3 years old) just sharpens his claws on the base without going on any of the platforms because he isn't the steadiest and doesn't really fit.
The little one (7 months old) likes it more and sometimes even sleeps on it. But even he loses his balance sometimes. The cat tree is now 2 years old but started coming undone after just a few months and I can't see a way to fix it.
The top platform is pretty small, my cats aren't even that big and they can't get into it. The rest of the tree isn't bad and it seems fair for the price but I think it's worth spending a little more to buy something that's more high end
