This is my second Cat tree. Great for my two cats. But difficult to put together because the smaller connecting bolts are not long enough to easily meet the connecting pieces. After a lot of bad language and brute force I was successful. I also used one item from previous model which connected more easily as I ran out of steam. If the smaller bolts were actually long enough to reach pieces it would have been easy to put together. But my cats love it so it was just about worth the effort.
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!
Used by 2 tonkinese, one asian, heavy boys. Assembly took a bit of head scratching but no issues. Very robust - three large cats squeezed into the one basket without any problems, it never rocks or tips. The top basket can be pivoted to give the best 'view'. I've moved this up and down stairs a few times; it is solid. After a year the foam inside the cushions started to crumble, so I replaced with fabric. Love the washable the cushion covers. A great buy.
Looks good, so easy to put together and I have 3 cats and they all use it. Bargain on zooplus too 😃 I wanted one of these when they first come out but they were £200 then
Just finished putting this together. First thing I will say is considering the price I expected some text in the instructions rather than pictures that you have to guess. Also my unit seemed to have misaligned holes which made it even more difficult. Last thing is the screws seemed too short to pass the leaf and into the hole on bottom of the basket. I had to use some screws I already had to get them to work. That said, it's up and pretty stable so 4 star for product
This cat tree is sturdy, long lasting, and well loved. I breed rag dolls, with about 1 or 2 litters a year, and three adult cats, and random visiting cats! After five litters and three years, this cat tree still almost looks brand new. I was just checking to see if it was for sale as my clients wanted to know. It is fabulous - the big cats love the shelves and top sections while the kittens love the cave. Love it soooo much!
This cat tree was popular when I bought it 20 months ago - three large boys squeezed into the curved bed together. It is very sturdy, withstanding heavy cats leaping on and off. I have moved it from room to room, up and downstairs, and it is very robust. Currently in my bedroom and the current three cats all use it to look out the window or tuck away for a peaceful nap. They scratch the posts daily, sparing bedroom furniture. And it still looks good!
I bought this a while ago and ever since I have had problems with it . One side of the cat tree keeps falling over . And it not strong ,the screws are way too short all the pieces aren't holding together . I really don't recommend this cat tree .
Once assembled, it took my 2 cats a few days to get usd to the huge cat tree. But after that, they love it. Jumping, climbing, scratching, sleeping & playing all revolves around their cat tree. Really pleased with my purchase
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.
We've had this tree for almost 5 years andit still looks like new. It's sturdi enough for our cat to jump on it when playing and run up to the top. Our cat loves it! It also looks great - we even get complements from people who don't have cats! I would definitely buy another one if this one needs replacement (although it looks like it will last for years to come).
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.
We ve had this now for 6+ years and it's been great. Very sturdy and stable we have had 2 ragdoll cats now 6 yrs old ( one of them died earlier this year) and now have 2 7 month old kittens. All of them love it. The older one uses the top to jump up onto high cupboards so she has some space. The other two share it. We will need to replace it in the next 6 months as it is now showing signs of wear mainly with 2 energetic kittens added to the mix, will buy the same again, can t fault 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.
Couldn't wait to get started on it. Built it in about 30 mins and was disappointed as it was very wobbly. Watched a utube video on how to build it. Made a cuppa took it apart and started again this time much more successful very solid although the cats had given up on me and have gone out, so now waiting for the return of the cats to see what they think
Bought this due to introducing a new adult male BSH to the household and my other 2 cats wouldn't allow him on "their tree" he's a 7kg big lad and adores the top spot on this tree, the other 2 soon decided they preferred this one to their cheap furry one. As everyone says the instructions are ambiguous, and it took me over an hour on my own of swapping various fittings to find what went where, only downsides were cost and the cushion covers shrunk after a cool wash and now don't fit the foam
Hi to anyone who has an initial problem assembling the tree because of the screws seeming to be too short: just screw them halfway. They'll tighten up while twisting the next piece you are conecting. And here's a video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9IWH4avXbo
I was a bit worried reading some of the negative feedback about this cat tree, but 3 months ago I took the plunge and ordered one, and it's been absolutely wonderful. I had no troubles with the assembly and the tree itself is super sturdy. I have 5 Persians and they are all totally over the moon with the tree. It's always being used and I highly recommend it
Superb !!! I can only back up what other reviewers have said ! My two cats have claimed it within 20 minutes of having been put up! Do not hesitate to buy this wonderful product, and the delivery was quick too ! But I'm used to that from zooplus, THANK YOU!
This cat tree goes really well with the rest of my decor and my cat has really taken a shine to it. I would definitely recommend this product.
I just received this product, it's really great, good quality, washable cushions, and lovely design.
Assembly was super easy for a lady like me :-) We've always had furry cat trees that haven't seen a lot of use. All of my three cats had jumped onto this one before I'd even finished putting it up. They love it and can't get enough of it. It seems to be in use constantly, and it looks good too! We will almost certainly need a new one next year because they use it so much, but that's a lot better than buying something for your cats that ends up getting used as decoration!! It's worth the money and I can't think of buying a different cat tree. It doesn't smell that much, and it's gone after a day :-) Just open the windows and you'll barely notice it. Even new furniture smells when you get it!
I don't have a clue what other reviews are complaining about, the only thing I can think of is some special chemicals used on the item when it is being imported/shipped. Our tree arrived scent tree, and was easily put together by one person. The design is unbeatable (for a cat tree). We're very happy so far. Let's see what the cats think.
We bought two of these and linked them together with a big board of the same colour, and our 3 cats have never been happier!!!! I highly recommend this product, it's easy to maintain thanks to the washable pillow, easy to assemble, and easy to combine with other furniture !
We bought this cat tree in 2009 and it has been used by 3 cats up until December 2013, 2 since then, and has moved house with me twice, and about to do so again. Still no obvious signs of use on the things, although my cats often like to roam outside. We also experienced some trouble with the pillow, but using old towels makes for easily washable bedding. A big thumbs up from us for this cat tree.
I may well have written a review when we first got this, but we've had ours for several years now and it's still in constant daily use by our three bulky & boisterous cats. Still looks good, still maintains their interest - best cat investment ever.
We already have a large cat tree in our lounge and find that our 3 kitties love it. Our boys all love to snooze on our bed and we decided to purchase another cat tree for the bedroom. I put the tree together myself (my other half was playing footy) and i found it quite easy to assemble, however, i found the instructions to be pretty poor.Its not so much the instructions, its the diagrams of the screws that are not clear. There are two different sizes of screws but they look very similar in the pictures and its hard to tell the difference. A little trial and error was needed but in total it took me little more than 30 minutes to erect. It actaully took me longer to re-arrange the bedroom furniture, just so the cat tree could fit in. The tree itself is beautiful. Its nice and heavy and is quite sturdy, even with 3 cats jumping about on it. It looks great and is what i would call a luxury product.The one little issue that i have with the product is the removable cushion pads. They are quite thin and not made of a cosy material. I have put extra sheepskin blankets into the sleeping areas for that extra bit of comfort and luxury. Overall, we and our kitties are very pleased. Excellent.
We are very happy with this cat tree. It looks really good in our flat and it's very sturdy. Our 3 Norwegians are very energetic but have yet to budge this cat tree. They really like the base for some reason, they can't seem to get enough of playing and bumming around on it. The tree is also used for naptime, and I would definitely buy it again.
I love this so much. It's really nice looking and the cats love it and I'd see them on it quite often especially because I put it near the giant window so they can look outside. The only problem is the screw (nut & bolt) at the base of the shorter pole is not long enough, so once in a while that side would collapse or get wobbly. Even if I twist it all the way, it's slightly wobbly and once it gets loosen from the play then it just collapse. :( Otherwise, it's beautiful and I especially love that the platforms are big and sturdy. Sisal rope poles are good quality too.
I have just purchased this tree for my kitten (which she is ready on December 16th) and I have just finished putting it together. To be honest, after reading all the other reviews about the instructions been poor and the screws been too short - I actually found both of these totally fine. It took me about an hour to put together and its solid. Excellent cat tree - really pleased I purchased it.
I have four large cats and they love this tree. It is very sturdy and each section is big enough for a large cat. The base is wide and solid . They sleep and play on it. Well worth the money . It also looks good too.
All great quality, however, instructions pointless and the screws are too small. Husband and son currently fighting the screws to put together...definitely a two man job. But it's going to be good once done!
I have 4 Sphynx cats and they absolutely love this tree! A space for all of them :) it's perfect! What a great price! People are always complimenting me on it :)
I bought this tree at double the price of the broken one it was replacing but must say that it's money well spent & I wish I'd just bought this the first time round. It's very sturdy, seems well made & the kitty platforms & dens are large enough for my sizeable British blue to loaf about on in comfort. There are plenty of posts for little claws to be honed to razor perfection and a good sized base without being too large. The cushion covers are all washable which is very handy. The fact that it's actually quite nice to look at is also a bonus as it really is something of a feature in my small dining room! The cats seem very happy and were all over it within minutes. Happy cats = happy me.
I originally reviewed this product in July 2010 , I am a cattery owner and was an expensive item to buy, but it has been well worth the money, in fact I bought a second one for another unit , shame the price wasn't as cheap as it is now, but great if you are considering getting one, I wouldn't hesitate, mine are as good today as they were four years ago , excellent tree, and mine are in use nearly ever day , 5stars from me
This arrived and before it was out of the box, my Persian Phoebe was there in the box overseeing operations, she just loves it! Often to be found lazing in it or having mad five minutes running up and down! Great product, highly recommend
I purchased this tree around 8yrs ago when I was a breeder of Siberians, it stood the test of time extremely well after being used by my little 'herd' of sibbys for about 4yrs - although it is big it fits in any room purrrrfectly :)
This was given to me by a friend about 3 years ago as she had bought a new tree. It had plenty of use before I got it but is still as sturdy as ever and much loved by the cats. It used to look great,however the cats have now eaten the banana leaves on the top bed. The rest of the tree is perfect. Does anyone know if I can just buy the top section?
I have 2 very active Bengal kittens who love the cat tree. It's robust, attractive and most importantly keeps them occupied and away from the curtains! I would highly recommend this product. My kittens love it so it gets my vote!
We got this tree in anticipation of the new arrival to the house. Our new little cat looked at it to begin with with hesitation, but once we put her on one of the levels she investigated the rest with interest. She was all over it after a few minutes and loves it. She sleeps in the round bowl basket at night, sits on the top levels during the day and uses the scratching posts instead of furniture which is always a bonus. We are really please with this product. Positives: 1) Lovely design that fits in with any household style. 2) It's quite large but very stable for our medium sized cat. 3) good scratching posts. 4) Great value when on offer. Down sides: 1) The instructions are awful. We had to just follow the pictures and make it up as we went along. 2) The double ended screws supplied aren't long enough for the design of the baskets. They assume the baskets are flush against the mounting and they aren't, so you really need two people to squeeze the two ends together. Hard work we can tell you. 3) Not sure how long the baskets will last if the cat starts scrathing at them. Overall, we are pleased with our buy and hope it looks just as good as it does now in six months time. :-)
