Diogenes Scratching Barrell XL
I love and so do my boys, wanted something large enough for my two British Shorthairs and this is perfect. Well worth every penny.

Fabulous Buy! 4 Paws Up!
This was a HUGE cat barrel - my male ragdoll is a little lost in the various cubby holes and can happily stretch out in the top bed. He was almost immediately into it, exploring and scratching and woke us up at stupid o-clock this morning, playing happily away. A real hit

What a bargain!
This is by far the best value cat home / scratching post / play centre ever. I'm 5'7" and the XL one comes up to my midriff (just under bust) it's wide and round and very very sturdily built. The scratching won't affect the look because this thing is built to last. Better than a Barratt home haha! I had this at a reduced price (XL for £54.99) make sure you get it for this price and I promise you, you will be delighted. About my cats? Ah well, they are now in my bed, and I'm curled up in this!

Amazing
This large barrel is just what I needed for the two cats I have! We have it at the back door and they love to climb it and sit in it.

Great
This has only just arrived and my cat has yet to discover the scratching side of it (which is why I bought it). However he is sitting in the top enclosed bit so I feel it as a success. Perfect size for my big, long cat!

Scratch Barrel
My cat is always so fussy about beds I buy her, but this has definitely been worth every penny she's in it most nights :-D

Great for snoozing
Bought this as a scratching post but my two never use if for scratching but love to sit on the top and look out of the window. They don't seem too keen on the lower levels. Bought 6 months ago and looks as good as new, but that's because they don't tend to scratch it I guess.Quite large so be sure you have the space for it!

Great for larger cats
I have 2 9kg Bengal boys and this is holding up great. Had a conventional cat tree that snapped to pieces. This is sturdy and doesn't move when they jump on and off etc. Also it's huge! I nearly died when it got delivered haha

excellent now bed is removable
excellent product! i had two of these a few years ago but the bed on top was not removable which made it impossible to wash, now you can remove the bed and wash it which is much better. i find it very secure but for those who said it wasn't attached very well, you can just get some stick on velcro strips and put it on around the edge. personally i found the amount supplied fine and my cats are very large. much improved with the bed removable.

Brilliant
Brought this over a year ago, I have four cat's needed something that would last. Two small lady's & two big male's they all love playing & sleeping in it, scratching it's still going strong well worth the money.

Even the fat one trusts it
I have two cats, one small thin normal sized, the other fat and barrel-chested. The little one jumps and loves to play, but the fat one has to slowly calculate every jump he makes, and if he thinks that something isn't study enough, he won't go for it. It takes him a long time to trust cat trees, especially if there is jumping involved. But this one is so sturdy that he just leaps up and boom, comfy place to sleep.

My girls love it! ❤
I bought this as I was getting a new sofa and my Bengal and Savannah have made a bit of a mess with the old one.. they went to this straight away and dont bother with the furniture any more. They also race for the top spot... I got the black one which fits in the living room well. Overall a good buy

Perfect for big cats to really stretch their backs & scratch
I have four loooong loooong Oriental Shorthairs and they love this thing, both for scratching/stretching purposes and for sleeping in and on. One word of warning, as with ALL cat trees, remove any toys on elastic that it comes with. They can ping back on themselves and trap or choke a cat. Having said that, I'm on my second one of these now (they finally destroyed the sisal on the first, after about a year). It lasts a great deal longer than a regular scratching post (my lot destroy those inside a month), and it's nice and robust - doesn't fall over even when they fling themselves at it. I wouldn't be without one now.

Perfect for My Two Large Maine Coons
'Large' is implied when one is talking about a Maine Coon, but I happen to have two extra-large Coon specimens. Naturally, I have some difficulty finding cat trees and whatnot that are big and sturdy enough for my boys. This cat-tree-barrel is PERFECT for my Pyggie and Theo. I worried that the cushion on the top would be too small, but I want all other big cat owners to know that our two 20 pound cats use and love this product easily!

Scratching barrel aka Kitten Towers
Our two 8 month old cats love their scratching barrel. More for sleeping in/on than scratching but they now spend most evenings up their watching what we're up to. V. stable and less obtrusive than some cat trees. Only down is that the dangling fluffy balls in the windows haven't lasted long. One was pulled off completely the other had the furry cover pulled off exposing a bell hanging on elastic so cut it off as could have been swallowing. Third (bottom window) is still attached for now!

Solid
A good quality item and very steardy. Larger than I expected; bed at the top fits my large cat perfectly. Soft plush material inside cubby holes. Strong weave externally. Good value for money.
