I purchased this tree a number of weeks ago, with as little hesitation at first because of the amount of use it may get and although it is early days yet I have had a number of cats (of different types)in the tree house chalet as it is now called and all very happy and adventurous. there are places to hide, places to play, climb, jump or just sleep, very pleased with it will keep you informed of its durability through its life.

This tree is great. It looks terrific, it's very sturdy and my cats love it. They use every single bit of it and race to get to the top basket first! who ever gets there first is 'top dog' all day. Excellent value.
we recently purchased a banana-leaf cat tree and as soon as we put it up both our birmans jumped straight on and claimed there place. they are both very happy and so are we it looks very good in our lounge. its the best looking cat tree we have seen. very pleased.
I recently purchased the banana tree, for my cattery it was an instant hit with the guests, seems very robust and contrairy to reviews was very quick and easy to assemble, looks very elegant, and comfortable. the kittens loved it, will be tested well here so i will keep you informed, so far very pleased
My three norweigan forest cats are really enjoying this tree! The top post is very popular. And it doesnt take over the entire room, it just looks pretty and my three cats are happy, so no complaints here :-)
Had this about a year and in general good. the cats seem to like it although they still favor the settee. the coir has come loose on one of the posts and the foam parts of the bedding have become unusable and have been thrown away. All in all good buy at the cheaper price ...it has 7 cats all on
I have two bengals who love climbing and scratching and it's still going strong nearly two years after I bought it. It has a couple of tatty bits where they've scratched daily but it's holding out well. It's still really sturdy and they still absolutely adore it. Slightly more expensive than your normal cat trees but it looks lovely and lasts really well.
Our bengals absolutely adore this tree and practically live in it. The basket does bend a bit with the 2 adults in it but they don't seem to mind sleeping at an angle. It wasn't the easiest to put up but well worth the effort.
Looks good, and my cat gets loads of fun from it. He loves racing to the very top and staring down at me like king of his castle! The only problem is that it was almost impossible to figure out how to build it from the 'instructions' which are basically just a picture. Even more incomprehensible than Ikea instructions! I did it by trial and error and it look me over an hour! Reading the other reviews I think I will have to dissemble it and start again too, as it's pretty wobbly when he charges about on it. Another reviewer gives a tip not to screw the bolt in too far in each bottom piece, so it tightens up... I'll give that a go - thanks!
This is a lovely cat tree. Yes it is a decent size so check your measurements first but it is beautifully made and tasteful. Looks like a trendy piece of furniture. My 3 cats love running up it and resting on the platforms.Is it worth the price tag? I would say yes as I think it will last a while and it is well made. As others have said it is a bit of a pig to put it together but I think most cat trees are to be honest!Once up though, it's worth it. The banana leaf is lovely too and the cream blends in nicely with most decor I would think. As someone said previously, try to tighten the posts up from the bottom as you assemble it as it makes it sturdier afterwards. V happy with it.
Like everyone before me I too was dubious about purchasing such an expensive cat post online, however the post arrived prompltly and in good condition and after an afternoon on sweating and swearing the post was finally constructed and ready to be abused by to very heavy pawed cats. It's safe to say it's a HUGE hit with both the cats and owners alike.
Our Maine Coon kitten loves it. He can land on the very top basket from a standing start across the room in under two seconds. It gives him a great lookout post. Looks good in our living room too (much better than the plant it replaced)
Have to say that this is the best looking cat tree as all the others seem to be covered in hideous cheap looking plush fabric - worth every penny. The only complaint is that the instructions are completely useless but with some thought it is fairly easy to assemble.
So many trees are great for cats (even a cardboard tube is great for a cat!) but this tree is great for everyone in your home because it looks really nice. Putting it together was so very easy! It's all about making sure you're hydrated and taking your time. Study the instructions and look at the finished item photo to help you. Everything fits together perfectly and all parts were present. Any down sides? Only one for us... we don't get the kitten until 6 week's time, so we're sitting here looking at a tree and wishing time away! Having owned a similar tree (from Zooplus) in the past, we know this one will be a big hit with our new Oriental baby. Zooplus have always been so efficient when we have ordered from them - please buy with confidence.
Had this about a month now. Although quite expensive, I actually think this is good value. You get a good quality piece of furniture. Its much bigger than I thought it would be, and sturdy. it weighs over 23Kg! Not too difficult to put together. The instructions aren't exactly comprehensive but adequate. I put it together by myself in about 20 minutes. An earlier review said about the screws not being long enough. My tip is to not screw them too far down on the bottom section, it then tightens up well. Also tighten everything as much as you you can, it stabilises the upper sections otherwise it can be wobbly at the top. Standley loves it. Uses the scratching posts all the time, just needed to discourage him from scratching the wicker bits, no problem after a few days. In fact he was trying to use the posts as I was putting it together. So glad I went for this rather than the other cheaper designs.
Have to agree with previous comments about the instructions - after 10 minutes of trying to work out which part was which I gave up altogether with the instructions and built it on a trial and error basis. It was not easy but it is definately worth the effort. Friends have brought a cheaper cat tree for their Maine Coon and although their cat does not use it much it is already looking tatty and needs to be replaced. Ours has pride of place in the lounge and I want to get the Banana Leaf Flat too as it is so stylish - I just hope, when we collect our two savannah kittens, that our new babies enjoy it too. Pics to follow
I bought this cat tree a couple of weeks ago and both of my kittens love it. I've positioned it in the bay window which gets a lot of sun. The kittens love playing and sleeping on the tree. I didn't think I'd ever buy one of these cat trees as the majority of them are so tasteless :) but this one is lovely, very sturdy, well made, and looks tasteful. It was a bit tricky to put together, but well worth the effort. Delivery time was good too.
Cats adore it but for the owners putting it together a little frustrating, the bolts/screws are not long enough to accomodate the washers and the posts do not fit very well into the baskets or shelves, we ended up assemling it upside down so that we could keep the screws as long as possible to get a grip. Worth it for the cat entertainment value, have 2 rag dolls, one leaps on top of the high basket the other is a little more cautious as he is very heavy and the whole thing wobbles a little under his weight.
I brought this item for my two cats last year when they were just kittens and they love it. The use all the baskets but do have their favorites. My male loves the scoop basket and the female loves the top basket. The run all over it when playing and also use the scratch posts. Best money spent. East to put together as i did it without help from my husband, however couldn't pretend we'd had it ages as its sooooooooo big. Make sure you have room as its like an extra piece of furniture!!!! Looks lovely and had loads of comments about it.
I bought this cat tree when I got two Bengal kittens in July 08. Whilst there are a couple of well worn spots where they've scratched it everyday, it's still sturdy and copes well under both their weights and the boy weighs 16 lbs/7.5kgs! They jump, climb, swing on it and scratch it constantly and sleep in it every day. I'm particularly impressed with the scratch posts as I have bought additional scratch posts which have fallen to pieces within a month or so but the ones on this tree are still in really good nick despite daily use for 18 months. Whilst a little more expensive than some brands it's money well spent as I can see me getting another year or so of use out of it at least.
I have 5 cats in total including a Maine Coon and three young kittens. I bought this as a Christmas present for them all. The Maine Coon loves to climb and sleep in the uppermost 'throne' and the kittens and other cat love to explore, jump on and sleep in the rest of it too. It's both of sturdy construction and attractive. It didn't take too long to assemble, although the instructions were a little unclear at times. Those people with larger cats will be impressed with the amount of 'climbing room' it gives without being too large an object. A great buy, you won't be disappointed!
We bought this tree over a year ago for our 3 very active burmese cats. They adore it, it is placed next to the window so they can use it as a look out post and it is deffinately their favorite tree to scratch and sleep in. Two cats can fit in to sleep in the bottom bed, but it is a bit of a squeeze, it is still going strong, but it dips down quite a lot. They do tend to stand on top of the wicker top bed and scratch it, but it is sturdy enough to take it and doesn't look too scruffy. This has my own and my burmese cats recommendation.
Lovely cat tree, looks very nice and Tilley my Maine Coon kitten absolutely loves it. We have positioned it close to the patio doors in the breakfast room and she spends a lot of time in the top den spying on the birds in the garden. Would definately recommend it, it is quite expensive but well worth the money.
This product was tricky to assemble but the finished item is well worth the effort. My 2 British Shorthairs adore it and the stylish design will compliment almost any interior. That said at full price I would find this cat tree a little too expensive for what it is so strongly advise purchasing it on sale as I did.
Great product, highly recommended. A Bit fiddly to put together, but we got there in the end, and our two (rather large boys) love it. It's ideal. Our older cat isn't interested, but I am hoping she will give it a go soon.
arrived in good time.after laying out the components on the bed our two three year old russian blue boys were soon sitting on bits of it.the pieces were all there.the build quality was very good.you don't need a degree in engineering to assemble it but i found some of the screw threads more than a little short which tested my patience to say the least.once assembled the tree was marginally smaller than i was expecting but that was a plus as we feared it may be too big for the room.(they have other trees!)in summary:- very expensive for a cat tree but its easily the best quality one we've had,the washable cushions are a plus,just make sure you're in a good mood when you try to assemble it!
I'm not usually an internet buyer but when I saw this for my 2 Maine Coons I thought it looked perfect. I read the reviews, trusted the comments and am very glad I did. It really is a wonderful treehouse and looks great in my living room. I highly recommend it.
A bit pricey but what a great product!!! My 1yr old maine coon absolutely loved it! The cat tree is a little bigger than i thought but the tasteful design and material ensures that it does not look tacky (as most fluffy cat trees do!). It was a bit of a struggle assembling it and although we really tightened it up well, it still wobbles when our cat moves around it. Overall a great product. would highly recommend it.
My kittis just LOVE it...there is always a cat to be found in this nice qualaty cattree. However the small cat toy in the buttom of the one basket only stayed on the basket for like 15 min XD. But thats how it is with big coonies. I was acualy amazed that it did not tripple while 7 kg cat jumped it with all its force. Very nice i will deffently get one more just bigger :)
I ordered this product and it was delivered in perfect condition within 5 days. It took just 20 minutes to put up and within a day all the beds were in use! I have 9 Persians and every one of them has now tried every bed! It is very sturdy and extremely attractive - and most importantly my cats love it. I am delighted with this cat stand and have no hesitation in recommending it.
Thank you very much Zooplus for supplying us with a scrathingpost to our cat. The tree seems to be of top quality to a very good price, much cheaper than in Sweden. The delivery was fast, six days to north of Sweden, home to our doorstep. Our cat, Tiger, loves his new tree and seems to sleep like a log in it! We really recomend this product. Easy to fit and very stabile.
Once again excellent service and value from Zooplus - won't use anyone else now when ordering online for our pets. We have had this product for some time now (nearly a year) and our three Bengals absolutely adore it. They are all slightly bonkers and usually knock the stuffing out of their cat trees within a few months - this still looks as good as the day it arrived. Thank you Zooplus
I liked the look of this cat tree but I was put off buying it from some of the reviews. I decided to take the risk and I have just finished putting it together. It's probably wider than I had expected but as cat trees go it's pleasant on the eye and doesn’t look tacky. It took me about ten minutes or so to assemble, I’m no genius but I thought it was a fairly straight forward task. It looks fun to play on or a good place to chill and observe. I wish I was small enough to use it!
I bought this a few weeks ago for my cats, 2 of which are large (and still very much growing) male ragdolls and I was concerned about getting a cat tree that would accommodate and withstand their size and weight. This one is fantastic, its big and robust but because of its design is asthetically pleasing and blends well into the surroundings. The instructions are a complete waste of time and putting it together took a Phd in advanced engineering and some brute force to make sure it was screwed tight enough so as not to wobble or fall apart, but once you manage it, its fantastic. My cats love it. They scratch on all the poles, although one is favourite and use everything except the lower cubby hole. I think this is because they have some difficulty where I have placed it, getting into it. The top open basket and hammock are the favourite spots, although the platform is excellent for lounging on and viewing out the window! It even withstands a large cat rocketing up to the top at high speed with only a slight wobble! Its expensive, but I think worth the extra if you have bigger cats.
Well, after spending all that money you're bound to be aren't you? But I've got to say that it's excellent - BIG yes, but beautiful too and worth making a bit of extra room for. Very robust and our cats were having a scratch at various part of it even when it was only being put together! Very pleased.
This is excellent. I bought it for my large cat who weighs in at 7kg. Yes, the top basket wobbled slightly as he first climbed up on it but have tightened and now it's fine! It is in my lounge and very noticable and I have had nothing but positive comments about it and I am very fussy when it comes to interior design. I have placed it next to the sofa and my cat loves the open basket where he can sit next to me and the shape fits him well, and he is a massive cat. Had it 9 months now and the cat still loves it, even though he mainly scratches one pole the sisal string is still all intact and it looks as good as it did when I first got it, amazing as he is an indoor cat and spends all day in it. He also uses every compartment depending on his mood and he took to it immediately!
I was a little anxious over the cost of this but I am so glad I took the plunge, I have two ragdoll boys and they love it. The extra bonus is that it looks far more attractive than the any other cat trees of this size! Definatley money well spent..
Took a chance on this item as it was quite expensive but I must say it was well worth the money. Zooplus provided an excellent service when one of the baskets was slightly bumped during transit, they ordered me a replacement basket and sent it free of charge. I did not have to send the whole thing back so I was impressed. My two kitten adore the cat tree and can be found most times sleeping in the very top basket.
this cat tree is great. my cat loves it! worth every penny!
