Excellent climbing tower, they enjoy playing, resting, and relaxing
My two little cats both enjoy their tower, I have positioned it next to my computer, they enjoy sitting next to me while I work - without sitting on paperwork or keyboards - and they can also look out of the window and check on the weather before venturing out. The plush base has started to come away, so I'll replace it with a carpet remnent and carpet adhesive, hence only 4 stars, but they enjoy it, and it looks nice to, and is stable.
Quite Easy to put together, cat started using it straight away, loves to sleep on the top, the karlie toys that can be screwed in are a welcome addition. Could be improved a little with a hammock for example, easy to clean, looks good after 1 years use.
I have only rated this 4 star as I have only just assembled it so cannot vouch for its longevity. I chose this based on other positive reviews that the product is sturdy and suitable for adult cats. I have a British Shorthair who is just over 6 months at present but wanted a product that would be suitable for her into adulthood as she is likely to grow quite big. She was immediately interested in the cat tree and start scratching straight away before I had even assembled the first part. Having just been spayed, her little cone head does not fit into the cubby hole just yet but once the Elizabethan collar is removed, I am sure she will enjoy playing hide and seek. Although I was aware of the product's measurements, I was still surprised by its size but pleased nonetheless - as an indoor cat, she will surely enjoy climbing up the levels. The product appears to be nice and sturdy. Assembly does take around 30-35 minutes, with the majority of time being spent interpreting the accompanying instructive diagram. I did this on my own and it was straightforward enough. The hardest part is probably figuring out the first step and which poles should be aligned to which holes as the diagram does not make entirely clear. Perhaps if they numbered the rods and the holes with sticky labels this would make the product even more user friendly. I am pleased with this product and once my kitten is fully recovered from her op, am sure she will have lots of fun on it.
I bought this cat tree in January for my two 3 month old kittens - they ignored it for a few days, and then couldn't get enough of it. Prior to getting this, they had shredded an expensive leather easy-chair, but their scratching tendencies are thankfully now limited to the cat tree. They are almost 8 months old now, and still love the different levels for playing, bird watching and curling up on. Now that they are venturing into the garden, they don't use it as much as when they were indoor-only, but I think they still like to know it's there and still use it most days. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it isn't as sturdy as it looks. My kittens have knocked the entire thing over during vigorous acrobatics on occasion. Very good value for the size and scope of this product. Definitely recommended.
