It’s empty in here!
I have two norweigian forest cats which are a very large breed, as soon as I pulled this out of the box they knew it was for them, they got straight inside and have really attached to it since. I have a male and a female and the female likes to sit on the top which is about a meter high to be safe from the boy cat (he's bit of a bully). This is by far the best pet product I have ever seen and its value for money is out of this world as I had a much smaller scratch post for £40, but this...wow They love to sleep inside and play with each other. Brilliant Fabulous Fantastic
This has arrived today in readiness for my new little Russian Blue....I am thrilled with it...just hope she will be as pleased , also! It is very sturdy and a good size, I know my previous cat, would have adored it, God Bless her. She used her scratching post every morning until she died, and it was nothing like this!!!Different generation and different facilities!!
My cat loves it! Do not hesitate to buy one, you can't go wrong!
My two Bengals love this! Great value for money.
I have three adult cats and they all took to this straight away. It's very sturdy and looks so much better than traditional cat trees. The top bed is always occupied, one cat gets off, another gets on. They don't use the bottom den but the top den gets used. My cats have never shared beds but are happy to share this. I am going to order a second one! The only negative is that you can't remove the top bed for cleaning.
We received our delivery today and as soon as we unpacked it my cats were all over it. It came already assembled so we literally had to just remove the box! The compartments are great, each has a toy hanging, there's a bed on top also! The bottom compartment and middle one have a hole in between so they can climb around inside from one to the other. The size is great too!! I think for 2 cats it's perfect. There's enough room for them both to play. It's very sturdy too when they are climbing and hanging off it. I recommend this product to anyone who has cats!
this scratching barrel has earned the nickname "the monster" in this house, and it truly is! make sure you get the tape measure out before you buy this item, it lives up to its XXL description. i bought this mostly for its height of scratch area, and my cat who likes vertical scratching is in seventh heaven with this, she can stretch right up to her full height. the large plush platform is my other cats evening roost, he can survey all that goes on in perfect comfort. he is a big cat and there is more than enough room for him. neither of my cats climb the monster or make much use of the hideaways but i am confident that it would be stable enough for the most energetic kitty to do both without it tipping over. i love this product and love the price that zooplus was able to offer it at. well done, cant recommend highly enough.
My cats love this barrel ,gives a lot fun for them and our family .They like to play seek and hide ,up and down and also they adore scratch it ,ofcorse sleeping on the top they like the most.
yes.. very pleased with this smart item... xmas pressie for my 2 cats, one has already proven hard to get out of the lower den as he saw me examining the item wen it arrived.. I like the non fussy, space saving, design; the colours and the multiple-use ...scratchpad, climber, 3 inner dens-cat can climb inside between lowest and middle den-3 toys attached(for a time anyhow lol) and a padded/plush top 'reclining' space which is tall enough to enable cats to gaze out of window. Happy with my choice. Thanx Zooplus for offering this deal...and providing excellent service.
Speedy delivery & has only been out of the box for 10mins before one of my cats started to investigate. Love that it is ready to go - its tall, spacious & sturdy. Both my cats are on the large size - and they fit nicely into the hidey holes. Considering another one already for the bedroom
Bought this scratching barrel for my 2 pussy cats and they love it, especially our timid cat Fudge. She feels safe sleeping on the top padded bed so much she has just tried to push our other cat Raison off who is fast asleep on it. The barrel is very sturdy and the scratching rope around the barrel is very good quality. Going to order another barrel as we have to carry the barrel up and down the stairs every day so the pussy cats can us it during the day and night.
Received this yesterday and when my cats let me get it out of the box they where all over it, sadly the toys only lasted half an hour but still with one in the middle and one upside down in the bottom they love it
Ever since it came my cat has been sleeping on it day in day out. I'd recommend any owner to get one.
Arrived within 2 days of ordering and exactly as described. Absolutely no smell as experienced by a couple of other customers. Height is perfect for cat to lie on top and look out of window. Sits neatly in corner of room behind settee - well worth the £45 paid.
I bought this after reading the reviews and all I can say is, it's brilliant. My two Ragdolls love it. It's sturdy and safe, even with them hanging on to the side, trying to 'kill' the attached toys. If you're after a decent, quality and steady post, then look no further.
I bought this a few months back when I got my new Savannah Kitten, she loved it from the start. It looks great in the lounge and doesn't 'shed' any bits as most cat trees seem to do. Recommend it highly
I brought two of the Diogenes XXL Scratching Barrels, and my little moggy Wallace loves them both! I must admit to not reading the description in its entirety so the little hanging toys in each of the caves came as a pleasant surprise. It's a very sturdy product, not a single wobble no matter how ferociously Wallace flings himself at it! Even better than Wallace loving it, it came ready assembled and all I had to do was drag it up the stairs! I really cannot recommend this product enough for anyone who wants a stable, decent sized bit of cat furniture.
Bought this for my 3 birmans, cats all over it before it was out of the box. Really good value item, its tall enough for them to stretch & scratch, has a really cosy cushioned perch at the top and my very young birman loves the hidey holes to play in. Would recommend this as it is three items in one and it looks nice too.
This is a solid and well constructed barrel - and our 5 month old BSH loves it , using it to scratch as well as to hide and sleep in the compartments. She also loves the top and the cozy bed. I thought the bed at the top might detatch for cleaning and access to compartment below but it doesnt. However at sub £50 it's a superb product that we wouldn't be without😊
Finally !! With the weather turning windier and wetter my two burmese moggie crossies are not getting out so much. They are only 4 and still enjoy a good play and run around. I sometimes work long hours and get a bit concerned that they are getting bored / unfit stuck in the house. I bought them a big expensive 6 ft cat tree and they were, believe it or not, a bit scared of it, wouldn't go near it. It was passed to an aquaintance. I wanted to get something for them to climb and encourage them to play on their own as I sometimes feel that they look to me to waggle sticks, flick paper balls etc which I obviously can't do if I'm not there. Not really wanting to shell out another 170 euros for a big tree I thought I'd give this a go. It was an immediate success. They have never touched a scratching post in their lives. I have sprayed previous posts with catnip cat attract spray and tried everything but they were adamant the only things that would suffice were the furniture and the neighbour's fence. Freddy is a big boy at 6.5kg and he can only just fit in the top coop but fit in it he does, though he prefers to sit on top and survey the neighbours through the window. Wee Ginge goes absolutely berzerk in the top coop fighting with the hanging bird. Then they have a great time pawing at each other from the different levels. They also both love to stretch and scratch on it. If you fling a valerian pillow or catnip toy inside I guarantee your cat / s will have a party in there for about half an hour. This item is also ready to go, absolutely no assembly whatsoever and though is a largish item and solid is not overly heavy. I managed to carry it up to the spare room no problem and it can be easily moved around the room if you desire. The most well received item I have purchased for my kitties in 4 years. The only thing I would say is that it would be even better if a taller model was introduced. Another couple of feet and they would get some great exercise pulling themselves up. Definitely recommend.
No sooner it was out of it's very sturdy packing box my 5 Australian Mists were up it, on it and in it as it didn't need assembling.
Wow, pussy-cat heaven. A place to hide, explore, play, rest and to scratch with my claws to my heart's content. I can perch on the top where there is a comfy sitting area from which I can view the world from on high. Every kitty deserves one of these! And mum says it's great that it doesn't take up too much room and what a great price this was from Zooplus!
My cat loves this tower as the top part is so soft for her to sleep and the edging is soft too so she can rest her chin in comfort. It is a perfect height for looking out of a window while she is resting in comfort. Looks tidy in the house too with its rounded shape. The extra large size is ideal for larger or longer cats. I would definitely only buy this product if I needed another one for somewhere else in the house. Well made too.
We have ten cats, mostly rescued as I help out with fostering! The cats never move out! They all love this, places to snooze, scratch and hide. Previously had the smaller version, this is much better for adult cats as it's taller and wider, might need to buy another.
My kitten absolutely loves this scratching barrel and seems to zoom in and out of all the compartments at 100 miles an hour swatting at the toys that dangle down. He loves to climb to the top and then get comfy on the nice plush bed and look out the window or have a snooze. Brilliant product.
my two cats love it ive had mine for almost two years well used but still looks new, they both sleep in it day and night and love jumping in and out of it and sunbathing by the window in the top bed, so impressed that im thinking of buying another for the bedroom
This is an excellent product. I have Ragdoll cats and they love it. I bought one 2 months ago and bought another one today. My cats are large and can fully explore all the openings and the top is large enough for two at a squeeze. It seems very durable given the scratching use every day. Would recommend this product to all.
I've bought the big one first, and my cats were so impressed I bought a further 2 smaller ones, my cats love it, they sleep in it play in it and its so strong I know it will last a long time, these are better then any cat tree I have ever bought, if I could buy another smaller one I would but sadly this item is now sold out.
my 6 furbabies love it, my english blue Blue is a very large cat and this is the only scratcher i have found that he can fit in! he along with Inka, Callie, Merlin, Loki and Athena all chase each other in n out n all around this excellent product. they love it! i couldnt imagine being without it! 5 stars..a must have for all cats!!!
I bought the smaller one so could not leave a review as it has sold out. But it was that brilliant that i have also bought this one and waiting for it to arrive. I dont know whos more excited the cats or me . Its strong, Sturdy and alot tidier than other posts . I have 15 cats and i also foster and find my posts dont last very long. I may even buy a third one
I bought this for my rescue cat and she loves it. If she is not out or playing with toys then she is asleep on the top. She walks across me on the sofa and climbs straight on. I used to get cuddles before I bought this so beware!
All of my 4 cats love this barrel. My Bengal cross kittens fight on it shooting up, down the barrel and in & out of the holes. My 2 older cats also like to use it as a scratching post and they are notoriously fussy. My 11 year old Russian blue even likes to hide in it. It's a good size so bigger cats can still fit in. The cushion on top is lovely and soft so the kittens like to sleep up there, they also like the dangly toys but one of them was chewed off pretty quickly (the other 2 are still attached though, which is good for them as they are chewers). It also looks very nice like a piece of furniture so could go in any room. I'm very pleased with this purchase and my cats would give it the paws up.
I have had this barrel for over a year now and it still looks good. I have two indoor large Bengal cats who adore their toy. Very sturdy, doesn't fall over and fits just right in a corner. Yes it is big but I feel really good value for money. Well made and probably the best scratch item I have ever purchased.
My Bengal Oscar loves this. It's really sturdy and there are plenty of places for him to hide inside and there's a mouse dangling inside. I was originally going to get the black one but read too many reviews that it smelled funny so I went with the natural cream colour. He climbs on it, sleeps on it and scratches on it. It's a big hit with Oscar. I highly recommend it.
I have two very large cats, and was looking for something stable and tall enough to withstand their weight. This barrel is perfect for what I needed - I've had it a few weeks now and both cats use it daily. It looks smart and is very good quality, and like another reviewer said bits don't collect on the floor. I my opinion it's much more practical than some of the flimsy looking trees you can buy. 5 stars!
Bought this to add to other 'catification' efforts in my living room. They love it, the middle and bottom holes provide a fun way for the cats to get behind the sofa and more often than not there's one if not two of them sleeping on the top.
I have 3 boys and they all try to fit in the top section together! The shyest of the 3 also loves the middle hole. great buy :-)
Got this a few months ago and the cats love it..we are a multicat household with 5 cats..lthis barrel has lots of space and is very stable and durable..2 maine coons can squeeze into the top hideyhole and snuggle! So impressed I've come onto the site to buy another..even happier to find the reduced price offer!
got this 2 mths ago and its the best ive ever bought quite expensive tho,but when you add up all the others that you buy its well worth it ,my cat luvs it ,exellent,
Cali loves her new scratch barrel, hideaway and look-out snooze pad. She no longer shreds my leather furniture. Very pleased with the size and sturdy weight of the barrel, it should last for years. I've seen a similar item selling at double the price, thanks Zooplus!
