i bought this cat tree ,nearly 3 years ago ,and it is still very much used, my cats love it, they use all the scratching posts as well, and it still looks great, very well made product well worth the money, just make sure its put together right. does need screwing up every so often, because it gets a lot of use,and the banana leaf is still looking really good after all this time,I recommend this cat tree very much.
This Banana-leaf Tree is so beautiful, when I finished putting it together, or I could think off was wow,money worth spent, my 3 special little kittens are in paradise, they absolutely adore this,they look so cute when curled up together asleep.
I spent nearly a year deliberating whether to buy this cat tree and trying to save for it! But after the old one fell to pieces, I bit the bullet and purchased it and i couldn't be happier! My 3 cats love it, there is space enough for each of them to sleep comfortably and is sturdy enough to support them all! Its a good size without being imposing and is enjoyed very much by all 3 cats. The removable beds are ideal as they can be moved and cleaned. Assembly was fairly straightforward but a 2 person job as some of the parts are quite heavy.
Being a breeder of British Shorthair cats, i have had many cat trees. This does seem far superior than the fur covered trees which need constant brushing and hoovering, the removable covers for the seat pads are good idea. It did however take three attempts to erect correctly as it was wobbly on my first two attempts. The instructions could do with an overhaul and some writing to explain, as they are picture diagram only. My British Shorthair boys are 8.5kg and fit happily on this tree, they love it. It is a good size piece of furniture and looks fabulous. Impressive!
This is the best cat tree I have ever bought!! I have 2 Ragdoll cats and the boy is over 5kg! I bought this cat tree over 2 years ago and it is used every day by one or the other of my friends and I can honestly say it looks as good as the day I bought it! The covers are washable and the sisal poles seem to withstand scratching better than any other cat tree and believe me I have 3 on the go at the moment! I would completely recommend this tree
We have 2 Persians cats and they love it from the second they clapped their eyes on it. This is the most sturdy easy to assemble frame we ever had.What a shame we dont produce this in the UK, Or am I missing something? The delivery was first class and easy to locate. Shame I cant mark it more than 5. FIRST CLASS ALL AROUND
I have a 10lb (or 4.5kg) Scottish Fold named Winston. He absolutely loves this cat tree. He likes to lay in the 'leaf' and take a nap in the sun (we placed it by a big window) or sit on the flat perch and keep 'neighborhood watch'. I did not have any problems putting this tree together on my own. However, I was not a massive fan of the instructions being in picture form only and not providing step-by-step, descriptive instructions. The tree, itself, is much sturdier than I expected and has no problems holding Winston's weight. The tree I received is not a cheaply made product, nor does it look like a cheap product. The banana leaf is quite sturdy and durable. I have had Winston's tree for 3 years now and it looks the same as the day I put it together. What I really like about this tree is that the colors are quite aesthetically pleasing and easily go with one's other furniture. The tree comes with very, thin pads to place in the baskets and on the perch. I bought fleece material and made little blankets to cover these to add a little more 'padding'. It would be nice if the pads had been a little fuller, however, this is only a minor detail. Overall, the picture instructions and thinness of the pads are not upsetting enough for me to give this product less than a 5* rating. It has literally been worth every pound spent!
Purchased one of these trees a few years ago. Very impressed by the item then and still impressed by it now. So impressed that we have recently purchased another two of these. I love the fact you can remove and wash the covers. Very easy to assemble. Very easy on the eye. No carpet on tree at all which to me is one of the best things about it 10/10
This is the third tree bought for my two large moggies and is the best ever, very sturdy and has to be as one cat alone is 6kgs. The cats scratch, play, and sleep on/in it and love the top basket, I've had it a few years it looks as good as new, fits in well with any decor and is easy to clean, the only thing I've done is put covers on the cushion pads. If this ever wears out I would definitely buy another. I would rate this a ten. It's Superb!
This is a lovely tree. I have Siberians and they grew out of it at around 6 months old, so I wouldn't recommend this for larger breeds of cats. It has kept standing, however, it has loosened off a lot.
After reading the reviews, I took the plunge and ordered this one. So glad I did. Having help from my two kittens I managed to put it together with no problems. It is robust and easy to clean, with being able to put the cushions in the washer. My boys love it and are always all over it. Two grown up visitors are also very impressed. My boys are growing up fast and this will last them for a very long time.
This cat tree looks very nice. Takes a bit of brute force to put together but once assembled it is very sturdy and will last for ages. The cats really just use it as a sleeping post though. They squabble over who gets the top basket. The enclosed lower basket doesn't interest them at all. For large cats who like a big stretch and scratch this wouldn't be my first choice. Whilst it does look very nice I wouldn't buy another one - would replace it with a post that encourages the cats to exercise/play a bit more. Basically I would say that this design caters more to human aesthetics than to cat needs. But it is very good value for money.
Our two new Birman kittens fell in love with this at first sight. Within about an hour of coming into their new home they were both fast asleep in the top bed. My other half managed to build this tree in about an hour and only needed help with the top piece due to a recent shoulder operation. The tree is amazing, superb quality, what I like about it most is the pieces are banana leaf all the way around and not just on the parts you see. Well done zooplus, the quality of goods supplied is second to none.
Excitedly constructed this huge item following advice from previous reviewers on keeping the bottom half of the double ended screws only partly screwed in to give length for good connections. I had been so worried from other reviewers that this would take me hours of sweat and frustration to construct. I did, of course, as a useless DIYer, connect the wrong pieces first. Beware you connect the longer of the two pairs of sisal stalks to the base unit or you'll end up desconstructing. Also be careful not to drop the washers inside the 'nana leaf lining of the dens. Also do not tighten every connection to the max until you are sure you've got the right pieces in place! Although the instructions are just diagrams, if you follow very closely you will get it right. After an hour of physical exertion and eventually a helping hand, the finished product is magnificent. The quality is top notch and the design provides four separate levels, each with a different purpose. Do be aware this is a very large piece. The base is solid and you can drag it about, but be prepared to provide 43 inches width, 28 inches depth and 60+ inches height. As usual, with all my expensive purchases, the cats have yet to show a lasting interest. But then, I think positioning is critical, so I will continue to keep moving it about until the rulers of the house give their blessing.
Initially we bought one of these trees two and a half years ago when our 'girls' Tigi and Kizi were kittens. We liked it so much we bought a second one for the bedroom. They now love relaxing in the 'pods'. They regularly use the scratching poles. As yet there is no sign of wear, and look just as stylish as the day we bought them.A very good buy indeed and worth every penny.
I purchased this with some reservation due to the cost but Wow! was it well worth it. My 2 Ragdolls absolutely adore it. It's huge and just perfect for my growing boys. It is very sturdy and can accomodate them throwing thereselves all over it at high speed... A+
Our two cats loves the Banana Leaf Tree and it looks very nice in our new livingroom. Can't live whitout it.
Our cats and also all our kittens loves this Cat Tree. We have now 2 of this tree´s . Have buy one more for 2 weeks ago and now there is more place to sleep for our cats.
I brought this tree at a discounted price about 2 years ago for two kittens. Now they are fully grown and have a year old companion to! All 3 of them use the tree every day...the top section is always taken by the boy, the platform by the 1 yr old and the bowl type section the female 2 year old. It gets regularly used as a scratch post by all and other than needing to tighten it up a couple of times has survived exceptionally well!!
I read through the reviews and saw several saying this didnt last, was not as sturdy as it looks etc. Well, i bought this over 3 years ago for my 4 ragdolls and plump British Blue as they needed a large, sturdy tree. I have never been disappointed by it and they LOVE it. They use it constantly and its frequently full of cats. You can definitely say its had a good testing and lots of use and apart from being a nightmare to put together properly, its fantastic! I've had none of the problems other people have mentioned such as unsturdyness, wobbling, disintergrating etc. I bought some cheap fake sheep fleece at the fabric store and made covers for the mats in the beds and wash these rather than the mats.I have 2 very large male ragdolls and they can destroy anything in seconds given the chance but this tree looks as good as the day I bought it (apart from the inevitable scratching on the posts), despite being well used. Highly recommended to anyone with large cats especially. But I do recommend a degree in advanced engineering to assemble it!
I bought this cat tree about 10month ago, and my two cats really love it, it is really well made and is lovely to look at in the room as well, the scratching posts, are well used, and so are the beds, milly claims one of the beds as her own the bucket as we call it, she will share it with molly sometimes, it is a very sturdy tree if put together correctly, well worth the money a really lovey piece of kit for my girls. milly especially says thanks.
This looks great, ideal with its neutral colour too as it will blend in any home. My cats love it, especially the top bed. However, I echo some of the earlier comments, it's not easy to assemble (I had to do it myself) and the screws are not ideal for the job (some of the screws needed to be longer so that was really frustrating as it hampered the assembly), I have put blankets over each bed to make it more comfy as the sponge supplied is thin and poor quality. Glad I didn't pay full price but pleased I bought it and so are my cats!
Bought Monday evening, delivered Wednesday. After buying, read reviews and was very concerned about putting it together, however I found it very easy (20 mins tops) and my boys love it. I am a 54yr old widow, who until 10 months ago had a hubby for 35 years who did all this type of thing and I never had to bother with it,I also have a very demanding full time management role,if I can put it together anyone can, just set it all out and follow the pics!!!
Delivery was fast. Looks great but putting it together was not a walk in the park - particularly the den bit - the bolt they supplied was a nightmare to try to attach to the first "leg" - appeared too short at first and took ages to actually get in - so they really should re-look at that bit. Can't say anything for durability yet as have only had it a few days but as we have six Ragdolls it will certainly be put through its paces!
the instructions to assemble this could be better -- it was impossible to put together UNLESS in part A DO NOT tighten up the first part of the screw, as the 2nd part of the screw would not catch. However when completed, it is great.
I adore this cat tree. It is beautiful and sturdy and every bit as lovely as it looks in the advert. I bought it for my now enormous Maine coon cat, and it has stood the test of time (from boisterous kitten to equally excitable 11 month old giant). He spends much of his time hanging out of his little penthouse basket and looking around. 2 of my friends wanted to know where it came from straight away. The colours of the tree are perfect, very well made and easy to set up. Recommended!
I bought this for my 3 cats four years ago. I now have another addition to my cat family. I recently found the Banana cat Igloo at a boot fair for £15!! So lucky! Anyway, my cats love both the tree and the igloo. It is very robust (needs tightning up occasionally .. thats all!) and most of all it is so natural and looks good. I can highly recommend this product and it is worth every penny!
An absolutely lovely unit which looks lovely in my living room. Of course the important thing is my two cats love this tree and spend hours on it every day. It is holding up very well to all this use and as another reviewer said it just needs to be tighten up every few months.
at first, I thought this really good, with lots of places for my cats to use. However, the "durable" banana leaf has been scratched to pieces, making such a mess, the stuff gets everywhere. The expensive tree was spoiled by extremely cheap, flimsy, very thin "beds"? Of which the inside disintegrates on washing. All in all, Ok for a while.
I bought this for my 2 Ragdolls about 6 months ago and they absolutely love it. My cats are big and heavy(6kg) and it is still in great condition despite them sleeping in it every day and chasing each other up and down it on a daily basis. If put together properly (I didn't first time and was very unstable) it is very sturdy and I take mine apart every couple of months(or when feeling a bit wobbly)and re-tighten everything as things can get loose with lots of play, but it is as good as new once this is done. Been worth every penny for me and would highly recommend.
Whilst this is a beautiful and quite pleasing item I was disappointed with the assembly instruction - nothing is marked and as there is a right and wrong way of putting in the connectors this would have been helpful. BUT the main problem is that you need 2 people to put it together so not really the item for someone like myself who is retired, female and lives on their own so a warning that it may require 2 persons would have been helpful (did find someone to help me, but it cost me!!) Positive note next - service from Zooplus excellent! and the cats like it!
I purchased this for my 3 cats fantastic sturdy value for money would recomend love it
This is a lovely looking cat tree and is very although it is quite wide, compared to my other trees so i moved it into the conservatory, its now been well used by my boy who rocks on it and has broken it, he is a big lad and despite its current state it was the most expensive tree I have purchased so will be keeping it until it falls to pieces, however i would not buy again, it looked tatty too soon bit too expensive for my pocket. I prefer the Tobi, just personal choice but its a much more sturdy tree.
I got this for my new kitten so she would have somewhere to scratch & lounge. Very very good product solidly put together and should hold grown up cats. It fits right in with my decor and even though its substantial in proportion, guests are not unduly aware of it in the room. I have good leather chairs and it has been a relief that there is a no holds barred zone for rough & tumble. worth every penny and I think it will last a long time too
This is a lovely cat tree. It's big enough for my cats to play/sleep on but small enough not to take over the room. It looks good and is of excelent quality. My 4 persians love playing with it and then resting on the differnet levels. When put together properly it is very sturdy. Unfortunately, the instructions (a picture) are not of much use but with a bit of thought you can easily put the frame together. When it's built you realise it was well worth the money!
I've only had this for 3 days and my ginger tom, Levi has already taken to it. He hasn't found the courage to make it to the top level yet... but it's only a matter of time. Was worried he'd still want to sleep in his old tree so I haven't thrown it out yet as he loves it, but he hasn't been anywhere near that, prefering his new Banana Leaf tree instead. It took a while to put together as I did it on my own, but it was definitely worth the time and effort. The only thing I'm disappointed at, is that the tree is now almost £15 cheaper than I paid for it a week ago!
my two kittens love the cat tree they play on it all day and love sleeping there i would garentee this for all poeple with kittens or cats . NOT its rubbish dont get it it end up falling to peces
I have 12 kittens, and they fight over this cat paradise! They love it soooooo much! Its really good for exercise, building confidence and strength and having fun! They are all siblings, and I got them when they were newborn, until now, because I had the mother, and she gave birth to them in my house, and I had the mother since she was 7 weeks old! Now all the kittens are 2 weeks old. Their mother sadly passed away after the birth of the 12 kittens of pain and agony. So I needed to give the kittens special love and care, so I decided to buy this heavenly product for cats and kittens. All the other cats and kittens from other gardens come, just to play with this product. I rate it 100000000 stars! I love animals you see. I have loads, but it will take me all day to tell you them! Im not over reacting, it is the truth! Yours Faithfully Nazarin Doodman
My cat still prefers his old one, but I prefer this one. It looks better! I wish something was done to the instructions though, they are blurry and not clear. Also the screws to fit could be just a bit longer... The tree is not that stable but luckily also not that high.
My family and I have just adopted two cats and I thought that getting a cat tree would help them settle in and give them something to take their attension away from the fact that they were having to stay indoors for a few weeks. I bought the tree from zooplus's e-bay shop as a second, for that we had a speedy delivery and the tree was in good condition when it arrived but a cat bed was purchased as the pad in the bowl bed was missing but the cats use it everyday to sleep on, play on and the scratching posts have acted as a very good preventative from them scratching the carpets. so all in all very happy family and very happy cats!
