This is my second Cat tree. Great for my two cats.
But difficult to put together because the smaller connecting bolts are not long enough to easily meet the connecting pieces. After a lot of bad language and brute force I was successful. I also used one item from previous model which connected more easily as I ran out of steam. If the smaller bolts were actually long enough to reach pieces it would have been easy to put together.
But my cats love it so it was just about worth the effort.
I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned the size of the bolts they supply to put this together. If you rely solely on these then I think you're going to find it impossible to put together and if you do manage its not going to be tight enough. Luckily I had some spare from previous trees which fit.
Overall now it's up it does look great. The cats like it and the cushions are easy to take off and wash which is another plus. Overall not as solid as I'd expect for the price but time will tell!
Used by 2 tonkinese, one asian, heavy boys. Assembly took a bit of head scratching but no issues. Very robust - three large cats squeezed into the one basket without any problems, it never rocks or tips. The top basket can be pivoted to give the best 'view'. I've moved this up and down stairs a few times; it is solid. After a year the foam inside the cushions started to crumble, so I replaced with fabric. Love the washable the cushion covers. A great buy.
Just finished putting this together. First thing I will say is considering the price I expected some text in the instructions rather than pictures that you have to guess. Also my unit seemed to have misaligned holes which made it even more difficult. Last thing is the screws seemed too short to pass the leaf and into the hole on bottom of the basket. I had to use some screws I already had to get them to work. That said, it's up and pretty stable so 4 star for product
This cat tree is sturdy, long lasting, and well loved. I breed rag dolls, with about 1 or 2 litters a year, and three adult cats, and random visiting cats! After five litters and three years, this cat tree still almost looks brand new. I was just checking to see if it was for sale as my clients wanted to know. It is fabulous - the big cats love the shelves and top sections while the kittens love the cave. Love it soooo much!
This cat tree was popular when I bought it 20 months ago - three large boys squeezed into the curved bed together. It is very sturdy, withstanding heavy cats leaping on and off. I have moved it from room to room, up and downstairs, and it is very robust. Currently in my bedroom and the current three cats all use it to look out the window or tuck away for a peaceful nap. They scratch the posts daily, sparing bedroom furniture. And it still looks good!
I bought this a while ago and ever since I have had problems with it . One side of the cat tree keeps falling over . And it not strong ,the screws are way too short all the pieces aren't holding together . I really don't recommend this cat tree .
Once assembled, it took my 2 cats a few days to get usd to the huge cat tree. But after that, they love it. Jumping, climbing, scratching, sleeping & playing all revolves around their cat tree. Really pleased with my purchase
This really is a very attractive cat tree once we actually managed, with great difficulty because of very poor instructions, to build it. Unfortunately, because I have 2 large Ragdolls, it was not sturdy enough for them. When they jumped on it the whole thing wobbled so much it terrified them and we had to dismantle it and return it. Zooplus did not quibble and I got the tree uplifted and money returned within days. Excellent service as always.
We've had this tree for almost 5 years andit still looks like new. It's sturdi enough for our cat to jump on it when playing and run up to the top. Our cat loves it! It also looks great - we even get complements from people who don't have cats! I would definitely buy another one if this one needs replacement (although it looks like it will last for years to come).
Very nice tree in the end, however, took hours to build as instructions were very misleading and screws are too small, the tree being so difficult resulted in it because wobbly but it's fine once the cats are on it.
We ve had this now for 6+ years and it's been great. Very sturdy and stable we have had 2 ragdoll cats now 6 yrs old ( one of them died earlier this year) and now have 2 7 month old kittens. All of them love it. The older one uses the top to jump up onto high cupboards so she has some space. The other two share it. We will need to replace it in the next 6 months as it is now showing signs of wear mainly with 2 energetic kittens added to the mix, will buy the same again, can t fault it.
Firstly I love the look of this cat tree but.....it took me hours to figure out from the "plans" how to put it together. I have since, this morning put it together and taken it down three times as no matter what I do it wobbles. My cat jumped up to the top basket and it moved so much he jumped straight out. YouTube video I found didn't really help much If anyone has any tips I would be glad of them because if I can't sort it I will have to reluctantly return it.
Couldn't wait to get started on it. Built it in about 30 mins and was disappointed as it was very wobbly. Watched a utube video on how to build it. Made a cuppa took it apart and started again this time much more successful very solid although the cats had given up on me and have gone out, so now waiting for the return of the cats to see what they think
Bought this due to introducing a new adult male BSH to the household and my other 2 cats wouldn't allow him on "their tree" he's a 7kg big lad and adores the top spot on this tree, the other 2 soon decided they preferred this one to their cheap furry one. As everyone says the instructions are ambiguous, and it took me over an hour on my own of swapping various fittings to find what went where, only downsides were cost and the cushion covers shrunk after a cool wash and now don't fit the foam
Hi to anyone who has an initial problem assembling the tree because of the screws seeming to be too short: just screw them halfway. They'll tighten up while twisting the next piece you are conecting. And here's a video!
I was a bit worried reading some of the negative feedback about this cat tree, but 3 months ago I took the plunge and ordered one, and it's been absolutely wonderful. I had no troubles with the assembly and the tree itself is super sturdy. I have 5 Persians and they are all totally over the moon with the tree. It's always being used and I highly recommend it
Superb !!! I can only back up what other reviewers have said ! My two cats have claimed it within 20 minutes of having been put up! Do not hesitate to buy this wonderful product, and the delivery was quick too ! But I'm used to that from zooplus, THANK YOU!
