Dangerous tree for cat
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE!!! This tree is very dangerous for the cat. Shelves too rigid, ergonomics not thought out, hammock without protective edges, it is easy to fall off. Our cat already 2 times in a dream fell from the upper shelf, because the shelf is flat and there are no protective edges.
XL cat tree..cats abandoned me
Purchased the cat tree for my 2 British shorthairs for xmas. Easy to put together and looks amazing when up..only down side is my 2 British shorthairs love it that much i no longer see them and have to grab a chair just to go say hello..love seeing my boys happy though so I've got to take comfort in the fact that there both happy
Great but not stable
At 1st was great my cat loved it and went all the,way up. But with time it became wobely. My cat fall twice and doesnt agree to climb it longer.
King of the tower - he loves it.
He tried all the levels and goes on different ones seemingly depending on the time of the day and the view out the window. He looks so comfortable and happy, so thumbs up from Lucky. I only the other hand had one slight complaint... I don't feel like one screw is sufficient for the wall bracket and I will be adding 2 more to make it less wobbly for future. Unfortunately my ceiling is 2 inches short so I couldn't add the final bit on the top so that may contribute to the wobbling.
Great sturdy tree!
I have two chunky BSH cats, both love this tree, it takes up much less floor space than other trees and the cats love to climb up right to the top. Often one will hang of the hammock and try to launch a playful attack on the other on the way up, so it’s good for play as well as sleep! The little den was also a great safe place for our kitten to hide away when we first brought him home and he still fits in it now.
Sturdy, attractive, versatile, washable beds, small footprint, what's not to like?
My Cornish Rexes love it!
Sturdy structure, good quality, easy to assemble. Suitable for large active cats.
Great BUT read this first
This is a great cat tree. The construction is solid and I like that you can assemble it in different ways. BUT......it is too tall to have to the ceiling brace in my UK home so I have had to leave the top bit off. It is attached to the wall with the wall bracket but the whole thing shakes when my cat plays on it. It is at the point where I am worried it will pull the wall bracket off the wall along with a chunk of plaster.
This is one stunning piece of cat furniture. It was simple to assemble, on my own. I did it in less than 10mins. The only bit I had trouble with was the top piece, but a little bit of wiggling and it was fine. No one has ventured up to the top platform yet, but I'm sure they will.
Natural paradise ceiling cat tree
Great product, it is too tall for modern house ceilings, so had t modify it, a shame really would have been 5 stars otherwise.
Overall very good but...
I'm happy with the size and the quality of this tree as my two cats have no problem using it. I would say the wall bracket is a must otherwise when they jump up and down the whole thing shakes. However I don't know why the screw is not included in the pack!! The hole for the screw is quite large so you need to find your own way to fix it on the wall - still haven't found the right crew yet. But otherwise good. Just a little bit disappointed.
Very Happy BUT please read first
We have two of these trees in our house, they are excellent value for money,our cats love them and they are very comfortable beds and i love that you can take the beds off and wash them, the sisal became loose after a year but is easy to wrap again.BUT I have to stress please take the hooks off that hold the hammock up, i have removed them after finding my cat hanging from one by her mouth, we were very lucky we found her in time, so pls remove, the cats dont bother with the hammock anyway, i think its more for show. I had to share this with others.
Pleased so far
I decided to upgrade to this tree because of space reasons, and I am not a fan of the tacky full velour-looking trees. Assembly was pretty easy, although some of the B screws were quite difficult to tighten as there is no tool for it, just elbow grease and scraped up fingers. The instructions don't really explain the top screw that tightens the tree to the ceiling but after some thought we figured it out. The bamboo cave is fantastic as it looks like my 6 month old Norwegian Forest Cat will still be able to fit in there comfortably when full-grown. He is loving all the height too and has already scrambled to the top to survey his territory. It is not as steady as I'd have hoped without the wall bracket in place, and the base is not wide nor heavy at all. I will be borrowing a power drill to affix the tree to the wall asap as I can imagine that when my kitten gets heavier, it may not be that stable. The hammock seems small and doesn't give much room to get up and in to so may be more suited to smaller cats.
Very quick delivery. Extremely easy to assemble. I have 14 rescue cats so I need something that will take a good battering. This meets that requirement. The fact that the beds are removable and washable makes life a lot easier as I have 2 other, larger cat trees that have to be hoovered every other day to help keep them clean. I'm very happy with this item.
I have two Bengal cats who love to climb. Both cats love this to chill out on. Its a great sturdy well made product and I wohld recommend this cat tree to anybody.
Top marks, but some caveats
The tree arrived in a timely manner with simple instructions and ... no screws. To be fair to Zooplus they resolved the matter to my satisfaction within a few hours of me emailing them. So fair play to them for that. For the money, this is a really nice, tall, thin tree which I've positioned behind my reclining chair in the lounge, between lounge and dinning room. I've sited the round 'den' just behind and above my head. My cat loves climbing up the chair (and me) to get to his vantage point! I dispensed with the hammock because I knew my cat would ignore it and I didn't use one of the rope-covered pole sections as it made it too tall for where I wanted it to go. But the options with this tree are great. I'm only using the padded screw adjustment bracket at the top (with added large washers and bolt to distribute the load and stop the large screw bending) and it's a solid as a rock. Were the top buttressing against a plasterboard ceiling I would *definitely* recommend using the supplied wall bracket, but since the tree is positioned between wooden floor and solid lintel I'm satisfied that it's not moving anywhere (and I do check on a regular basis). A fellow reviewer commented on the limitations of the supplied velcro holding the beds in place: I agree there probably isn't enough. So forewarned -- thank you -- I added more white velcro strips and staple-gunned all of them to the wooden platforms, including the one in the den. Another reviewer commented on the lack of velcro supplied with the beds themselves: there isn't any. It foxed me for a moment, but you need to turn the beds inside out -- i.e the upper surface of the beds, as supplied to me, will stick against the velcro on the platforms perfectly once they are on the bottom of bed. :-) I'd have no hesitation in recommending this cat tree at all.
Great tree. instructions are rubbish but easy to figure out.
We bought this for our small flat in order to give our kitties more room to play - this tree is amazing!! They absolutely love it! Whenever we get home from work we'll find them on the very top layer cuddled up :) it's very easy to put together - you can drill it to the wall for extra stability but we've found there is no need.as noted in other reviews, the bed cushions do slip and so you need to find another way of securing them - other than that, it's perfect!
The quality of this one is fairly poor considering the high price. The whole tree came down several times because the fixation for the ceiling is so poor! We had to fix it our way and not use the provided "clamp/push mechanism". The overall quality is not very good and I wonder why the price is so high. Get some decent parts from your nearest DYI store and do it half price yourself ;) But to be fair - the soft parts provided are now a favorite place for our cat and we take it everywhere with us because it calms him down to sit on the soft and comfortable material.
Good Quality but flawed.
Good quality cat tree but there is no way my cats can jump from the hammock type thing to the top. Also the loose cover that hangs from four fittings has two cords on each corner so if my inquisitive cat put her head through the cords and fell off she would hang herself. Ordered some more velcro to keep the pads in place. Shame because it's a good product but has a few faults.
Trendy, modern, clean & functional
I bought this for my bengal kittens and they quickly took to it. It was extreme easy to put together but you will need to stand on something to reach the top as expected. We didn't use the side support and it is perfectly stable without it- we found the ceiling anchor to be sufficient. If I push on it it will wobble very slightly but it would never move due to the cats, no matter how heavy they are. Looks gorgeous in my house! Lovely colours with the natural oak wood and white covers. I bought this as it matches my natural oak floor boards. Easy to clean, blends in with its simple lines and doesn't make your house look like a 'cat house'. Will be investing in something to attach the shelf covering to each shelf as the Velcro does not work (there is no velcro on the material for the Velcro on the wood to attach to!). Overall, very happy with the purchase & because the Velcro problem is an easy fix I'm giving it 5 stars :)
Lucius and his cat tree.
My Maine Coon Lucius is a rather large cat and had quickly outgrown the scratch post I had purchased when he was a kitten. Because he is an indoor cat I wanted something that he could let off steam with. So, the structure had to be strong. I found the wood scratch post to be excellent for him. It was easy to put together and, with the help of my Brother-in-Law drilling the tree to the wall it was up and in use within two hours.
My darling 7 month old Maine Coon Lucius absolutely loves his 'tree'. As an indoor cat I feel its only fair that he is allowed to climb. So, now instead of climbing up the top of the door frame he can go higher and climb up the tree instead. The instructions were basic but manageable.
Good and bad points
Quick and easy to assemble but make sure you use two people and step ladders, this is very tall and needs a helping hand. The wall attachment is not optional, use it or this will lean and topple very quickly. Its slender design means that it needs the additional support. The cats love it and it is very comfy but a little word of warning. The Velcro bed grips are simply insufficient to hold on to the beds while cats jump in and out. DIY your own fixings or your cat, like ours, will at some point take a nasty fall from the top (poor moggy is still limping). Don't let that put you off... Just improvise and you'll have something your cats will love. PS delivery was amazingly quick
Great tree - the cats are very pleased!
We played around with the layout to fit a slightly lower space than designed for and bought some more hook and loop tape to stick the beds more firmly to the platforms (to stop them skidding to the floor when jumped upon!) and we do not not use the small hook on hammock as it is far too small to be of use for my large moggies! Love the look of the tree and the secure firmness the bracket brings (our first tree used to topple and eventually broke ... did I mention they are large?!) For scratching and lazing - a brilliant buy.
Wood scratching post cat tree
Only had for one day but my two bengals love it. Looks amazing and seems well made. My cats are very large and weigh just over 8kg each and this tree is perfect as it has a strong bracket that holds the tree firmly to the wall. Even when they are playing roughly on the tree, it does not move. We adapted it by leaving off the top pole as I wanted it to fit in a recess and its perfect. Would recommend :)
