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.
Looks good, so easy to put together and I have 3 cats and they all use it. Bargain on zooplus too 😃 I wanted one of these when they first come out but they were £200 then
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! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9IWH4avXbo
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!
This cat tree goes really well with the rest of my decor and my cat has really taken a shine to it. I would definitely recommend this product.
I just received this product, it's really great, good quality, washable cushions, and lovely design.
Assembly was super easy for a lady like me :-) We've always had furry cat trees that haven't seen a lot of use. All of my three cats had jumped onto this one before I'd even finished putting it up. They love it and can't get enough of it. It seems to be in use constantly, and it looks good too! We will almost certainly need a new one next year because they use it so much, but that's a lot better than buying something for your cats that ends up getting used as decoration!! It's worth the money and I can't think of buying a different cat tree. It doesn't smell that much, and it's gone after a day :-) Just open the windows and you'll barely notice it. Even new furniture smells when you get it!
I don't have a clue what other reviews are complaining about, the only thing I can think of is some special chemicals used on the item when it is being imported/shipped. Our tree arrived scent tree, and was easily put together by one person. The design is unbeatable (for a cat tree). We're very happy so far. Let's see what the cats think.
We bought two of these and linked them together with a big board of the same colour, and our 3 cats have never been happier!!!! I highly recommend this product, it's easy to maintain thanks to the washable pillow, easy to assemble, and easy to combine with other furniture !
We bought this cat tree in 2009 and it has been used by 3 cats up until December 2013, 2 since then, and has moved house with me twice, and about to do so again. Still no obvious signs of use on the things, although my cats often like to roam outside. We also experienced some trouble with the pillow, but using old towels makes for easily washable bedding. A big thumbs up from us for this cat tree.
I may well have written a review when we first got this, but we've had ours for several years now and it's still in constant daily use by our three bulky & boisterous cats. Still looks good, still maintains their interest - best cat investment ever.
We already have a large cat tree in our lounge and find that our 3 kitties love it. Our boys all love to snooze on our bed and we decided to purchase another cat tree for the bedroom. I put the tree together myself (my other half was playing footy) and i found it quite easy to assemble, however, i found the instructions to be pretty poor.Its not so much the instructions, its the diagrams of the screws that are not clear. There are two different sizes of screws but they look very similar in the pictures and its hard to tell the difference. A little trial and error was needed but in total it took me little more than 30 minutes to erect. It actaully took me longer to re-arrange the bedroom furniture, just so the cat tree could fit in. The tree itself is beautiful. Its nice and heavy and is quite sturdy, even with 3 cats jumping about on it. It looks great and is what i would call a luxury product.The one little issue that i have with the product is the removable cushion pads. They are quite thin and not made of a cosy material. I have put extra sheepskin blankets into the sleeping areas for that extra bit of comfort and luxury. Overall, we and our kitties are very pleased. Excellent.
We are very happy with this cat tree. It looks really good in our flat and it's very sturdy. Our 3 Norwegians are very energetic but have yet to budge this cat tree. They really like the base for some reason, they can't seem to get enough of playing and bumming around on it. The tree is also used for naptime, and I would definitely buy it again.
I love this so much. It's really nice looking and the cats love it and I'd see them on it quite often especially because I put it near the giant window so they can look outside. The only problem is the screw (nut & bolt) at the base of the shorter pole is not long enough, so once in a while that side would collapse or get wobbly. Even if I twist it all the way, it's slightly wobbly and once it gets loosen from the play then it just collapse. :( Otherwise, it's beautiful and I especially love that the platforms are big and sturdy. Sisal rope poles are good quality too.
I have just purchased this tree for my kitten (which she is ready on December 16th) and I have just finished putting it together. To be honest, after reading all the other reviews about the instructions been poor and the screws been too short - I actually found both of these totally fine. It took me about an hour to put together and its solid. Excellent cat tree - really pleased I purchased it.
I have four large cats and they love this tree. It is very sturdy and each section is big enough for a large cat. The base is wide and solid . They sleep and play on it. Well worth the money . It also looks good too.
All great quality, however, instructions pointless and the screws are too small. Husband and son currently fighting the screws to put together...definitely a two man job. But it's going to be good once done!
I have 4 Sphynx cats and they absolutely love this tree! A space for all of them :) it's perfect! What a great price! People are always complimenting me on it :)
I bought this tree at double the price of the broken one it was replacing but must say that it's money well spent & I wish I'd just bought this the first time round. It's very sturdy, seems well made & the kitty platforms & dens are large enough for my sizeable British blue to loaf about on in comfort. There are plenty of posts for little claws to be honed to razor perfection and a good sized base without being too large. The cushion covers are all washable which is very handy. The fact that it's actually quite nice to look at is also a bonus as it really is something of a feature in my small dining room! The cats seem very happy and were all over it within minutes. Happy cats = happy me.
I originally reviewed this product in July 2010 , I am a cattery owner and was an expensive item to buy, but it has been well worth the money, in fact I bought a second one for another unit , shame the price wasn't as cheap as it is now, but great if you are considering getting one, I wouldn't hesitate, mine are as good today as they were four years ago , excellent tree, and mine are in use nearly ever day , 5stars from me
This arrived and before it was out of the box, my Persian Phoebe was there in the box overseeing operations, she just loves it! Often to be found lazing in it or having mad five minutes running up and down! Great product, highly recommend
I purchased this tree around 8yrs ago when I was a breeder of Siberians, it stood the test of time extremely well after being used by my little 'herd' of sibbys for about 4yrs - although it is big it fits in any room purrrrfectly :)
This was given to me by a friend about 3 years ago as she had bought a new tree. It had plenty of use before I got it but is still as sturdy as ever and much loved by the cats. It used to look great,however the cats have now eaten the banana leaves on the top bed. The rest of the tree is perfect. Does anyone know if I can just buy the top section?
I have 2 very active Bengal kittens who love the cat tree. It's robust, attractive and most importantly keeps them occupied and away from the curtains! I would highly recommend this product. My kittens love it so it gets my vote!
We got this tree in anticipation of the new arrival to the house. Our new little cat looked at it to begin with with hesitation, but once we put her on one of the levels she investigated the rest with interest. She was all over it after a few minutes and loves it. She sleeps in the round bowl basket at night, sits on the top levels during the day and uses the scratching posts instead of furniture which is always a bonus. We are really please with this product. Positives: 1) Lovely design that fits in with any household style. 2) It's quite large but very stable for our medium sized cat. 3) good scratching posts. 4) Great value when on offer. Down sides: 1) The instructions are awful. We had to just follow the pictures and make it up as we went along. 2) The double ended screws supplied aren't long enough for the design of the baskets. They assume the baskets are flush against the mounting and they aren't, so you really need two people to squeeze the two ends together. Hard work we can tell you. 3) Not sure how long the baskets will last if the cat starts scrathing at them. Overall, we are pleased with our buy and hope it looks just as good as it does now in six months time. :-)
i bought this cat tree ,nearly 3 years ago ,and it is still very much used, my cats love it, they use all the scratching posts as well, and it still looks great, very well made product well worth the money, just make sure its put together right. does need screwing up every so often, because it gets a lot of use,and the banana leaf is still looking really good after all this time,I recommend this cat tree very much.
This Banana-leaf Tree is so beautiful, when I finished putting it together, or I could think off was wow,money worth spent, my 3 special little kittens are in paradise, they absolutely adore this,they look so cute when curled up together asleep.
I spent nearly a year deliberating whether to buy this cat tree and trying to save for it! But after the old one fell to pieces, I bit the bullet and purchased it and i couldn't be happier! My 3 cats love it, there is space enough for each of them to sleep comfortably and is sturdy enough to support them all! Its a good size without being imposing and is enjoyed very much by all 3 cats. The removable beds are ideal as they can be moved and cleaned. Assembly was fairly straightforward but a 2 person job as some of the parts are quite heavy.
Being a breeder of British Shorthair cats, i have had many cat trees. This does seem far superior than the fur covered trees which need constant brushing and hoovering, the removable covers for the seat pads are good idea. It did however take three attempts to erect correctly as it was wobbly on my first two attempts. The instructions could do with an overhaul and some writing to explain, as they are picture diagram only. My British Shorthair boys are 8.5kg and fit happily on this tree, they love it. It is a good size piece of furniture and looks fabulous. Impressive!
This is the best cat tree I have ever bought!! I have 2 Ragdoll cats and the boy is over 5kg! I bought this cat tree over 2 years ago and it is used every day by one or the other of my friends and I can honestly say it looks as good as the day I bought it! The covers are washable and the sisal poles seem to withstand scratching better than any other cat tree and believe me I have 3 on the go at the moment! I would completely recommend this tree
We have 2 Persians cats and they love it from the second they clapped their eyes on it. This is the most sturdy easy to assemble frame we ever had.What a shame we dont produce this in the UK, Or am I missing something? The delivery was first class and easy to locate. Shame I cant mark it more than 5. FIRST CLASS ALL AROUND
I have a 10lb (or 4.5kg) Scottish Fold named Winston. He absolutely loves this cat tree. He likes to lay in the 'leaf' and take a nap in the sun (we placed it by a big window) or sit on the flat perch and keep 'neighborhood watch'. I did not have any problems putting this tree together on my own. However, I was not a massive fan of the instructions being in picture form only and not providing step-by-step, descriptive instructions. The tree, itself, is much sturdier than I expected and has no problems holding Winston's weight. The tree I received is not a cheaply made product, nor does it look like a cheap product. The banana leaf is quite sturdy and durable. I have had Winston's tree for 3 years now and it looks the same as the day I put it together. What I really like about this tree is that the colors are quite aesthetically pleasing and easily go with one's other furniture. The tree comes with very, thin pads to place in the baskets and on the perch. I bought fleece material and made little blankets to cover these to add a little more 'padding'. It would be nice if the pads had been a little fuller, however, this is only a minor detail. Overall, the picture instructions and thinness of the pads are not upsetting enough for me to give this product less than a 5* rating. It has literally been worth every pound spent!
Purchased one of these trees a few years ago. Very impressed by the item then and still impressed by it now. So impressed that we have recently purchased another two of these. I love the fact you can remove and wash the covers. Very easy to assemble. Very easy on the eye. No carpet on tree at all which to me is one of the best things about it 10/10
This is the third tree bought for my two large moggies and is the best ever, very sturdy and has to be as one cat alone is 6kgs. The cats scratch, play, and sleep on/in it and love the top basket, I've had it a few years it looks as good as new, fits in well with any decor and is easy to clean, the only thing I've done is put covers on the cushion pads. If this ever wears out I would definitely buy another. I would rate this a ten. It's Superb!
This is a lovely tree. I have Siberians and they grew out of it at around 6 months old, so I wouldn't recommend this for larger breeds of cats. It has kept standing, however, it has loosened off a lot.
After reading the reviews, I took the plunge and ordered this one. So glad I did. Having help from my two kittens I managed to put it together with no problems. It is robust and easy to clean, with being able to put the cushions in the washer. My boys love it and are always all over it. Two grown up visitors are also very impressed. My boys are growing up fast and this will last them for a very long time.
This cat tree looks very nice. Takes a bit of brute force to put together but once assembled it is very sturdy and will last for ages. The cats really just use it as a sleeping post though. They squabble over who gets the top basket. The enclosed lower basket doesn't interest them at all. For large cats who like a big stretch and scratch this wouldn't be my first choice. Whilst it does look very nice I wouldn't buy another one - would replace it with a post that encourages the cats to exercise/play a bit more. Basically I would say that this design caters more to human aesthetics than to cat needs. But it is very good value for money.
Our two new Birman kittens fell in love with this at first sight. Within about an hour of coming into their new home they were both fast asleep in the top bed. My other half managed to build this tree in about an hour and only needed help with the top piece due to a recent shoulder operation. The tree is amazing, superb quality, what I like about it most is the pieces are banana leaf all the way around and not just on the parts you see. Well done zooplus, the quality of goods supplied is second to none.
Excitedly constructed this huge item following advice from previous reviewers on keeping the bottom half of the double ended screws only partly screwed in to give length for good connections. I had been so worried from other reviewers that this would take me hours of sweat and frustration to construct. I did, of course, as a useless DIYer, connect the wrong pieces first. Beware you connect the longer of the two pairs of sisal stalks to the base unit or you'll end up desconstructing. Also be careful not to drop the washers inside the 'nana leaf lining of the dens. Also do not tighten every connection to the max until you are sure you've got the right pieces in place! Although the instructions are just diagrams, if you follow very closely you will get it right. After an hour of physical exertion and eventually a helping hand, the finished product is magnificent. The quality is top notch and the design provides four separate levels, each with a different purpose. Do be aware this is a very large piece. The base is solid and you can drag it about, but be prepared to provide 43 inches width, 28 inches depth and 60+ inches height. As usual, with all my expensive purchases, the cats have yet to show a lasting interest. But then, I think positioning is critical, so I will continue to keep moving it about until the rulers of the house give their blessing.
Initially we bought one of these trees two and a half years ago when our 'girls' Tigi and Kizi were kittens. We liked it so much we bought a second one for the bedroom. They now love relaxing in the 'pods'. They regularly use the scratching poles. As yet there is no sign of wear, and look just as stylish as the day we bought them.A very good buy indeed and worth every penny.
Our two cats loves the Banana Leaf Tree and it looks very nice in our new livingroom. Can't live whitout it.
Our cats and also all our kittens loves this Cat Tree. We have now 2 of this tree´s . Have buy one more for 2 weeks ago and now there is more place to sleep for our cats.
I purchased this with some reservation due to the cost but Wow! was it well worth it. My 2 Ragdolls absolutely adore it. It's huge and just perfect for my growing boys. It is very sturdy and can accomodate them throwing thereselves all over it at high speed... A+
I brought this tree at a discounted price about 2 years ago for two kittens. Now they are fully grown and have a year old companion to! All 3 of them use the tree every day...the top section is always taken by the boy, the platform by the 1 yr old and the bowl type section the female 2 year old. It gets regularly used as a scratch post by all and other than needing to tighten it up a couple of times has survived exceptionally well!!
I read through the reviews and saw several saying this didnt last, was not as sturdy as it looks etc. Well, i bought this over 3 years ago for my 4 ragdolls and plump British Blue as they needed a large, sturdy tree. I have never been disappointed by it and they LOVE it. They use it constantly and its frequently full of cats. You can definitely say its had a good testing and lots of use and apart from being a nightmare to put together properly, its fantastic! I've had none of the problems other people have mentioned such as unsturdyness, wobbling, disintergrating etc. I bought some cheap fake sheep fleece at the fabric store and made covers for the mats in the beds and wash these rather than the mats.I have 2 very large male ragdolls and they can destroy anything in seconds given the chance but this tree looks as good as the day I bought it (apart from the inevitable scratching on the posts), despite being well used. Highly recommended to anyone with large cats especially. But I do recommend a degree in advanced engineering to assemble it!
I bought this cat tree about 10month ago, and my two cats really love it, it is really well made and is lovely to look at in the room as well, the scratching posts, are well used, and so are the beds, milly claims one of the beds as her own the bucket as we call it, she will share it with molly sometimes, it is a very sturdy tree if put together correctly, well worth the money a really lovey piece of kit for my girls. milly especially says thanks.
This looks great, ideal with its neutral colour too as it will blend in any home. My cats love it, especially the top bed. However, I echo some of the earlier comments, it's not easy to assemble (I had to do it myself) and the screws are not ideal for the job (some of the screws needed to be longer so that was really frustrating as it hampered the assembly), I have put blankets over each bed to make it more comfy as the sponge supplied is thin and poor quality. Glad I didn't pay full price but pleased I bought it and so are my cats!
Bought Monday evening, delivered Wednesday. After buying, read reviews and was very concerned about putting it together, however I found it very easy (20 mins tops) and my boys love it. I am a 54yr old widow, who until 10 months ago had a hubby for 35 years who did all this type of thing and I never had to bother with it,I also have a very demanding full time management role,if I can put it together anyone can, just set it all out and follow the pics!!!
Delivery was fast. Looks great but putting it together was not a walk in the park - particularly the den bit - the bolt they supplied was a nightmare to try to attach to the first "leg" - appeared too short at first and took ages to actually get in - so they really should re-look at that bit. Can't say anything for durability yet as have only had it a few days but as we have six Ragdolls it will certainly be put through its paces!
the instructions to assemble this could be better -- it was impossible to put together UNLESS in part A DO NOT tighten up the first part of the screw, as the 2nd part of the screw would not catch. However when completed, it is great.
I adore this cat tree. It is beautiful and sturdy and every bit as lovely as it looks in the advert. I bought it for my now enormous Maine coon cat, and it has stood the test of time (from boisterous kitten to equally excitable 11 month old giant). He spends much of his time hanging out of his little penthouse basket and looking around. 2 of my friends wanted to know where it came from straight away. The colours of the tree are perfect, very well made and easy to set up. Recommended!
I bought this for my 3 cats four years ago. I now have another addition to my cat family. I recently found the Banana cat Igloo at a boot fair for £15!! So lucky! Anyway, my cats love both the tree and the igloo. It is very robust (needs tightning up occasionally .. thats all!) and most of all it is so natural and looks good. I can highly recommend this product and it is worth every penny!
An absolutely lovely unit which looks lovely in my living room. Of course the important thing is my two cats love this tree and spend hours on it every day. It is holding up very well to all this use and as another reviewer said it just needs to be tighten up every few months.
at first, I thought this really good, with lots of places for my cats to use. However, the "durable" banana leaf has been scratched to pieces, making such a mess, the stuff gets everywhere. The expensive tree was spoiled by extremely cheap, flimsy, very thin "beds"? Of which the inside disintegrates on washing. All in all, Ok for a while.
I bought this for my 2 Ragdolls about 6 months ago and they absolutely love it. My cats are big and heavy(6kg) and it is still in great condition despite them sleeping in it every day and chasing each other up and down it on a daily basis. If put together properly (I didn't first time and was very unstable) it is very sturdy and I take mine apart every couple of months(or when feeling a bit wobbly)and re-tighten everything as things can get loose with lots of play, but it is as good as new once this is done. Been worth every penny for me and would highly recommend.
Whilst this is a beautiful and quite pleasing item I was disappointed with the assembly instruction - nothing is marked and as there is a right and wrong way of putting in the connectors this would have been helpful. BUT the main problem is that you need 2 people to put it together so not really the item for someone like myself who is retired, female and lives on their own so a warning that it may require 2 persons would have been helpful (did find someone to help me, but it cost me!!) Positive note next - service from Zooplus excellent! and the cats like it!
I purchased this for my 3 cats fantastic sturdy value for money would recomend love it
This is a lovely looking cat tree and is very although it is quite wide, compared to my other trees so i moved it into the conservatory, its now been well used by my boy who rocks on it and has broken it, he is a big lad and despite its current state it was the most expensive tree I have purchased so will be keeping it until it falls to pieces, however i would not buy again, it looked tatty too soon bit too expensive for my pocket. I prefer the Tobi, just personal choice but its a much more sturdy tree.
I got this for my new kitten so she would have somewhere to scratch & lounge. Very very good product solidly put together and should hold grown up cats. It fits right in with my decor and even though its substantial in proportion, guests are not unduly aware of it in the room. I have good leather chairs and it has been a relief that there is a no holds barred zone for rough & tumble. worth every penny and I think it will last a long time too
This is a lovely cat tree. It's big enough for my cats to play/sleep on but small enough not to take over the room. It looks good and is of excelent quality. My 4 persians love playing with it and then resting on the differnet levels. When put together properly it is very sturdy. Unfortunately, the instructions (a picture) are not of much use but with a bit of thought you can easily put the frame together. When it's built you realise it was well worth the money!
I've only had this for 3 days and my ginger tom, Levi has already taken to it. He hasn't found the courage to make it to the top level yet... but it's only a matter of time. Was worried he'd still want to sleep in his old tree so I haven't thrown it out yet as he loves it, but he hasn't been anywhere near that, prefering his new Banana Leaf tree instead. It took a while to put together as I did it on my own, but it was definitely worth the time and effort. The only thing I'm disappointed at, is that the tree is now almost £15 cheaper than I paid for it a week ago!
my two kittens love the cat tree they play on it all day and love sleeping there i would garentee this for all poeple with kittens or cats . NOT its rubbish dont get it it end up falling to peces
I have 12 kittens, and they fight over this cat paradise! They love it soooooo much! Its really good for exercise, building confidence and strength and having fun! They are all siblings, and I got them when they were newborn, until now, because I had the mother, and she gave birth to them in my house, and I had the mother since she was 7 weeks old! Now all the kittens are 2 weeks old. Their mother sadly passed away after the birth of the 12 kittens of pain and agony. So I needed to give the kittens special love and care, so I decided to buy this heavenly product for cats and kittens. All the other cats and kittens from other gardens come, just to play with this product. I rate it 100000000 stars! I love animals you see. I have loads, but it will take me all day to tell you them! Im not over reacting, it is the truth! Yours Faithfully Nazarin Doodman
My cat still prefers his old one, but I prefer this one. It looks better! I wish something was done to the instructions though, they are blurry and not clear. Also the screws to fit could be just a bit longer... The tree is not that stable but luckily also not that high.
My family and I have just adopted two cats and I thought that getting a cat tree would help them settle in and give them something to take their attension away from the fact that they were having to stay indoors for a few weeks. I bought the tree from zooplus's e-bay shop as a second, for that we had a speedy delivery and the tree was in good condition when it arrived but a cat bed was purchased as the pad in the bowl bed was missing but the cats use it everyday to sleep on, play on and the scratching posts have acted as a very good preventative from them scratching the carpets. so all in all very happy family and very happy cats!
I purchased this tree a number of weeks ago, with as little hesitation at first because of the amount of use it may get and although it is early days yet I have had a number of cats (of different types)in the tree house chalet as it is now called and all very happy and adventurous. there are places to hide, places to play, climb, jump or just sleep, very pleased with it will keep you informed of its durability through its life.

This tree is great. It looks terrific, it's very sturdy and my cats love it. They use every single bit of it and race to get to the top basket first! who ever gets there first is 'top dog' all day. Excellent value.
we recently purchased a banana-leaf cat tree and as soon as we put it up both our birmans jumped straight on and claimed there place. they are both very happy and so are we it looks very good in our lounge. its the best looking cat tree we have seen. very pleased.
I recently purchased the banana tree, for my cattery it was an instant hit with the guests, seems very robust and contrairy to reviews was very quick and easy to assemble, looks very elegant, and comfortable. the kittens loved it, will be tested well here so i will keep you informed, so far very pleased
My three norweigan forest cats are really enjoying this tree! The top post is very popular. And it doesnt take over the entire room, it just looks pretty and my three cats are happy, so no complaints here :-)
Had this about a year and in general good. the cats seem to like it although they still favor the settee. the coir has come loose on one of the posts and the foam parts of the bedding have become unusable and have been thrown away. All in all good buy at the cheaper price ...it has 7 cats all on
I have two bengals who love climbing and scratching and it's still going strong nearly two years after I bought it. It has a couple of tatty bits where they've scratched daily but it's holding out well. It's still really sturdy and they still absolutely adore it. Slightly more expensive than your normal cat trees but it looks lovely and lasts really well.
Our bengals absolutely adore this tree and practically live in it. The basket does bend a bit with the 2 adults in it but they don't seem to mind sleeping at an angle. It wasn't the easiest to put up but well worth the effort.
Looks good, and my cat gets loads of fun from it. He loves racing to the very top and staring down at me like king of his castle! The only problem is that it was almost impossible to figure out how to build it from the 'instructions' which are basically just a picture. Even more incomprehensible than Ikea instructions! I did it by trial and error and it look me over an hour! Reading the other reviews I think I will have to dissemble it and start again too, as it's pretty wobbly when he charges about on it. Another reviewer gives a tip not to screw the bolt in too far in each bottom piece, so it tightens up... I'll give that a go - thanks!
This is a lovely cat tree. Yes it is a decent size so check your measurements first but it is beautifully made and tasteful. Looks like a trendy piece of furniture. My 3 cats love running up it and resting on the platforms.Is it worth the price tag? I would say yes as I think it will last a while and it is well made. As others have said it is a bit of a pig to put it together but I think most cat trees are to be honest!Once up though, it's worth it. The banana leaf is lovely too and the cream blends in nicely with most decor I would think. As someone said previously, try to tighten the posts up from the bottom as you assemble it as it makes it sturdier afterwards. V happy with it.
Like everyone before me I too was dubious about purchasing such an expensive cat post online, however the post arrived prompltly and in good condition and after an afternoon on sweating and swearing the post was finally constructed and ready to be abused by to very heavy pawed cats. It's safe to say it's a HUGE hit with both the cats and owners alike.
Our Maine Coon kitten loves it. He can land on the very top basket from a standing start across the room in under two seconds. It gives him a great lookout post. Looks good in our living room too (much better than the plant it replaced)
Have to say that this is the best looking cat tree as all the others seem to be covered in hideous cheap looking plush fabric - worth every penny. The only complaint is that the instructions are completely useless but with some thought it is fairly easy to assemble.
So many trees are great for cats (even a cardboard tube is great for a cat!) but this tree is great for everyone in your home because it looks really nice. Putting it together was so very easy! It's all about making sure you're hydrated and taking your time. Study the instructions and look at the finished item photo to help you. Everything fits together perfectly and all parts were present. Any down sides? Only one for us... we don't get the kitten until 6 week's time, so we're sitting here looking at a tree and wishing time away! Having owned a similar tree (from Zooplus) in the past, we know this one will be a big hit with our new Oriental baby. Zooplus have always been so efficient when we have ordered from them - please buy with confidence.
Had this about a month now. Although quite expensive, I actually think this is good value. You get a good quality piece of furniture. Its much bigger than I thought it would be, and sturdy. it weighs over 23Kg! Not too difficult to put together. The instructions aren't exactly comprehensive but adequate. I put it together by myself in about 20 minutes. An earlier review said about the screws not being long enough. My tip is to not screw them too far down on the bottom section, it then tightens up well. Also tighten everything as much as you you can, it stabilises the upper sections otherwise it can be wobbly at the top. Standley loves it. Uses the scratching posts all the time, just needed to discourage him from scratching the wicker bits, no problem after a few days. In fact he was trying to use the posts as I was putting it together. So glad I went for this rather than the other cheaper designs.
Have to agree with previous comments about the instructions - after 10 minutes of trying to work out which part was which I gave up altogether with the instructions and built it on a trial and error basis. It was not easy but it is definately worth the effort. Friends have brought a cheaper cat tree for their Maine Coon and although their cat does not use it much it is already looking tatty and needs to be replaced. Ours has pride of place in the lounge and I want to get the Banana Leaf Flat too as it is so stylish - I just hope, when we collect our two savannah kittens, that our new babies enjoy it too. Pics to follow
I bought this cat tree a couple of weeks ago and both of my kittens love it. I've positioned it in the bay window which gets a lot of sun. The kittens love playing and sleeping on the tree. I didn't think I'd ever buy one of these cat trees as the majority of them are so tasteless :) but this one is lovely, very sturdy, well made, and looks tasteful. It was a bit tricky to put together, but well worth the effort. Delivery time was good too.
Cats adore it but for the owners putting it together a little frustrating, the bolts/screws are not long enough to accomodate the washers and the posts do not fit very well into the baskets or shelves, we ended up assemling it upside down so that we could keep the screws as long as possible to get a grip. Worth it for the cat entertainment value, have 2 rag dolls, one leaps on top of the high basket the other is a little more cautious as he is very heavy and the whole thing wobbles a little under his weight.
I brought this item for my two cats last year when they were just kittens and they love it. The use all the baskets but do have their favorites. My male loves the scoop basket and the female loves the top basket. The run all over it when playing and also use the scratch posts. Best money spent. East to put together as i did it without help from my husband, however couldn't pretend we'd had it ages as its sooooooooo big. Make sure you have room as its like an extra piece of furniture!!!! Looks lovely and had loads of comments about it.
I bought this cat tree when I got two Bengal kittens in July 08. Whilst there are a couple of well worn spots where they've scratched it everyday, it's still sturdy and copes well under both their weights and the boy weighs 16 lbs/7.5kgs! They jump, climb, swing on it and scratch it constantly and sleep in it every day. I'm particularly impressed with the scratch posts as I have bought additional scratch posts which have fallen to pieces within a month or so but the ones on this tree are still in really good nick despite daily use for 18 months. Whilst a little more expensive than some brands it's money well spent as I can see me getting another year or so of use out of it at least.
Lovely cat tree, looks very nice and Tilley my Maine Coon kitten absolutely loves it. We have positioned it close to the patio doors in the breakfast room and she spends a lot of time in the top den spying on the birds in the garden. Would definately recommend it, it is quite expensive but well worth the money.
We bought this tree over a year ago for our 3 very active burmese cats. They adore it, it is placed next to the window so they can use it as a look out post and it is deffinately their favorite tree to scratch and sleep in. Two cats can fit in to sleep in the bottom bed, but it is a bit of a squeeze, it is still going strong, but it dips down quite a lot. They do tend to stand on top of the wicker top bed and scratch it, but it is sturdy enough to take it and doesn't look too scruffy. This has my own and my burmese cats recommendation.
I have 5 cats in total including a Maine Coon and three young kittens. I bought this as a Christmas present for them all. The Maine Coon loves to climb and sleep in the uppermost 'throne' and the kittens and other cat love to explore, jump on and sleep in the rest of it too. It's both of sturdy construction and attractive. It didn't take too long to assemble, although the instructions were a little unclear at times. Those people with larger cats will be impressed with the amount of 'climbing room' it gives without being too large an object. A great buy, you won't be disappointed!
This product was tricky to assemble but the finished item is well worth the effort. My 2 British Shorthairs adore it and the stylish design will compliment almost any interior. That said at full price I would find this cat tree a little too expensive for what it is so strongly advise purchasing it on sale as I did.
Great product, highly recommended. A Bit fiddly to put together, but we got there in the end, and our two (rather large boys) love it. It's ideal. Our older cat isn't interested, but I am hoping she will give it a go soon.
arrived in good time.after laying out the components on the bed our two three year old russian blue boys were soon sitting on bits of it.the pieces were all there.the build quality was very good.you don't need a degree in engineering to assemble it but i found some of the screw threads more than a little short which tested my patience to say the least.once assembled the tree was marginally smaller than i was expecting but that was a plus as we feared it may be too big for the room.(they have other trees!)in summary:- very expensive for a cat tree but its easily the best quality one we've had,the washable cushions are a plus,just make sure you're in a good mood when you try to assemble it!
I'm not usually an internet buyer but when I saw this for my 2 Maine Coons I thought it looked perfect. I read the reviews, trusted the comments and am very glad I did. It really is a wonderful treehouse and looks great in my living room. I highly recommend it.
A bit pricey but what a great product!!! My 1yr old maine coon absolutely loved it! The cat tree is a little bigger than i thought but the tasteful design and material ensures that it does not look tacky (as most fluffy cat trees do!). It was a bit of a struggle assembling it and although we really tightened it up well, it still wobbles when our cat moves around it. Overall a great product. would highly recommend it.
My kittis just LOVE it...there is always a cat to be found in this nice qualaty cattree. However the small cat toy in the buttom of the one basket only stayed on the basket for like 15 min XD. But thats how it is with big coonies. I was acualy amazed that it did not tripple while 7 kg cat jumped it with all its force. Very nice i will deffently get one more just bigger :)
I ordered this product and it was delivered in perfect condition within 5 days. It took just 20 minutes to put up and within a day all the beds were in use! I have 9 Persians and every one of them has now tried every bed! It is very sturdy and extremely attractive - and most importantly my cats love it. I am delighted with this cat stand and have no hesitation in recommending it.
Thank you very much Zooplus for supplying us with a scrathingpost to our cat. The tree seems to be of top quality to a very good price, much cheaper than in Sweden. The delivery was fast, six days to north of Sweden, home to our doorstep. Our cat, Tiger, loves his new tree and seems to sleep like a log in it! We really recomend this product. Easy to fit and very stabile.
Once again excellent service and value from Zooplus - won't use anyone else now when ordering online for our pets. We have had this product for some time now (nearly a year) and our three Bengals absolutely adore it. They are all slightly bonkers and usually knock the stuffing out of their cat trees within a few months - this still looks as good as the day it arrived. Thank you Zooplus
I liked the look of this cat tree but I was put off buying it from some of the reviews. I decided to take the risk and I have just finished putting it together. It's probably wider than I had expected but as cat trees go it's pleasant on the eye and doesn’t look tacky. It took me about ten minutes or so to assemble, I’m no genius but I thought it was a fairly straight forward task. It looks fun to play on or a good place to chill and observe. I wish I was small enough to use it!
Well, after spending all that money you're bound to be aren't you? But I've got to say that it's excellent - BIG yes, but beautiful too and worth making a bit of extra room for. Very robust and our cats were having a scratch at various part of it even when it was only being put together! Very pleased.
I bought this a few weeks ago for my cats, 2 of which are large (and still very much growing) male ragdolls and I was concerned about getting a cat tree that would accommodate and withstand their size and weight. This one is fantastic, its big and robust but because of its design is asthetically pleasing and blends well into the surroundings. The instructions are a complete waste of time and putting it together took a Phd in advanced engineering and some brute force to make sure it was screwed tight enough so as not to wobble or fall apart, but once you manage it, its fantastic. My cats love it. They scratch on all the poles, although one is favourite and use everything except the lower cubby hole. I think this is because they have some difficulty where I have placed it, getting into it. The top open basket and hammock are the favourite spots, although the platform is excellent for lounging on and viewing out the window! It even withstands a large cat rocketing up to the top at high speed with only a slight wobble! Its expensive, but I think worth the extra if you have bigger cats.
This is excellent. I bought it for my large cat who weighs in at 7kg. Yes, the top basket wobbled slightly as he first climbed up on it but have tightened and now it's fine! It is in my lounge and very noticable and I have had nothing but positive comments about it and I am very fussy when it comes to interior design. I have placed it next to the sofa and my cat loves the open basket where he can sit next to me and the shape fits him well, and he is a massive cat. Had it 9 months now and the cat still loves it, even though he mainly scratches one pole the sisal string is still all intact and it looks as good as it did when I first got it, amazing as he is an indoor cat and spends all day in it. He also uses every compartment depending on his mood and he took to it immediately!
I was a little anxious over the cost of this but I am so glad I took the plunge, I have two ragdoll boys and they love it. The extra bonus is that it looks far more attractive than the any other cat trees of this size! Definatley money well spent..
Took a chance on this item as it was quite expensive but I must say it was well worth the money. Zooplus provided an excellent service when one of the baskets was slightly bumped during transit, they ordered me a replacement basket and sent it free of charge. I did not have to send the whole thing back so I was impressed. My two kitten adore the cat tree and can be found most times sleeping in the very top basket.
this cat tree is great. my cat loves it! worth every penny!
I brought this cat tree for our baby Russian Blue. He loves it and he has had hours of fun running up and down it. He uses all the beds to sleep in, and uses the scratching posts on a daily basis. It's expensive but worth every penny.
Great-looking tree house. Fiddly to erect, the instructions could have been more explicit, but well worth it. A very helpful company to deal with.
This cat tree arrived quickly was easy to build and my two balinese cats love it. Also looks really good, well worth the money in my view.
My 3 rescued cats love this tree...for sleeping, scratching, playing and climbing! They especially love the hammock and get to snooze in it on a first come, first serve basis! Good quality item that I would recommend to others. Worth the extra money and looks good in my home too! A great hit with my three!!!
Assembling was a bit hard. Really hard, actually, it was like one of the parts was a bit too short. But the result of our trouble is perfect - good quality, easy on the eye and a new favourite hang-around for the cats. It will last for years and years.
A Large, Stable, and unusual Cat Scratcher, Looks Great, Is Great!. My 5 British Shorthair cats love it - Buy It NOW your cat deserves it!!!.
I'm sure that if you can infact assemble this item it would be good, but to my horror (after a 6 day wait) the internal grub screws (which should have been glued into the baskets to allow the screws to lock into place) were missing in all but 1 instance - which means that i can not assemble and will have to return. Very very dissapointing - especially considering the high purchase price!
One of my cats spends 90% of his time up this tree, on the flat shelf, watching traffic. The other shelves don't get used much - and my other cat only climbed the tree once, but the scratching posts are well used by both cats. This tree is very sturdy, fairly easy to put together and extremely attractive. I'd definitely recommend it.
My four cats love this tree, from the moment it was made. Nice and strudy and nice to look at. There is always one of them on it and two were in the round bed the other day bit of a squeeze as they are part maine coone. Came quickly and on sale, what more can you ask.
I was looking few months ago for very stabile cat tree. I decide and bought Paradise for my new 3 BSH kittens. They have this tree in living room for climbing, playing and sleeping. They loves this tree, so I also bought 3 Banana Leaf sleeping Den for them. They loves it for jumping and sleeping. I highly recommended this product - WORTH EVERY CENT !!!
saw this cat tree and just loved it. was worried that my two kittens would hate it and would waste my money! however they absolutely love jumping, clawing and sleeping on it. Was shocked at the size at first, be prepared for another piece of furniture as its that big. would defiantly recommend this tree to any cat owner that didn't look at price first.
The tree is made to a very high spec, very strong and already the cats love it. However, instructions could be a lot better, it needs two people to erect and some brute strength to assemble partly due to the solidness of the components. However, once done its an attractive piece of furniture and will last for years and years, so overall well worth the money spent.
Our two indoor Siberian cats love it for climbing, scratching and sleeping - although annoyingly they both completely ignore the hammock, where they'd look so gorgeous curled up asleep! They chase each other up and down it, use it to snuggle up together (it's a squeeze, as they're big cats, but they persist, so I presume they're comfy!) , and also when they want some quality time alone, curled up in one of the baskets. The high places give them excellent vantage points to survey their indoor kingdom and also what's going on in the garden, as we've put it by a window for them. This cat tree is far and away the most aesthetically pleasing one on the market, and looks absolutely great in the front room. I do think that at the full price it is too expensive, but grab it in a sale, and you've got a bargain.
I bought this before my kittens arrived so I could get use to having a cat tree in the living room and it fits in lovely. When my 2 BSH kittens finally arrived this was the first thing they took to, even climbing onto the very top of the highest basket! They have since loved sleeping in the top basket together but now seem to enjoy the bowl basket although it does seem to be coming under a little strain now they are getting bigger! All in all though it has been a great buy.
My two cats completely adore this cat tree. They commandeered the baskets before I'd even put it up! My girl is 14 and my boy an older ex-feral who is not so good on his feet, so it's not just for bouncy kittens. It looks really lovely, too. We are all thrilled! Thank you so much!!
I bougt this cat tree for our two 4 month old birmans.They didn't take much notice of it apart from when it was being unpacked and assembled (they were "helping" my husband).After couple of weeks they worked out how to climb up & down. Now they use it every day especially the top basket where they curl up together to have a snooze. Scrath posts are fantastic and the whole tree looks like it will last a long time.I couldn't be happier with this purchase.
This is the only cat tree worth paying that little extra for. It is expensive (I think it's over-priced in all honesty) but the quality is superior. It's also far more stylish than other "carpet" style cat trees. I was surprised how quickly my 16 year old cat took to it, the hammock basket being her favorite place. The top-tier is a little wobbly which puts an elderly cat off a bit, but given the height there is little you can do about the wobble! Zooplus' service was excellent as usual. 9/10.
I brought this cat tree for my 10month old British Shorthair and she loves it. It arrived within 3 days and was fairly easy to put together. It is very strong, well made and has a natural feel. My cat has now taken up permanent residence in the top den and has decided this is more fun to scratch than the expensive leather sofas. Well worth the money, if you are looking for something modern and stylish
I wasn't keen on the fake fur covered posts and was delighted to find a more natural product that is also quite modern in design. It arrived within 5 days and has been greatly used by all of our 5 cats. One won't come down from the top at all!! It is great quality, spacious and sturdy. My only gripe is that the base is covered in fake fur unfortunately. The rest is lovely woven leaf and sisal so I can live with it. I highly recommend it and its well worth the extra money.
Like other reviewers, I did hesitate at the cost of this item, wondering if it would be good value and if the cats use of it would justify the price. However. they are really enjoying it, so my fears were unjustified. I would struggled to've assembled it without my partner's logical brain I must admit - only pictures and codes - no written instructions. I am pleased with how robust it appears to be, and the banana leaf is certainly a very attractive material.
The cat tower itself is a beautiful one, it is not as sturdy as we would like but it does look well and all the cats approve of it. The hammock and the top bed seem to be the favourite spots, with the rest being ignored. We had a problem in that it was delivered without anything to put the tower together with but this was rectified quickly with zooplus. Overall it's a good buy but I woul like it to be more sturdy.
Our two 9 month old kittens are more like big old cats already and as they are strictly indoor babies because of the busy road we live on, we wanted a cat tree which the could claw and chew and climb. I bought this the second I found it - it's their bed (they still try and both sleep in the'penthouse'), their scratching post, a climbing frame and bird hide where the sit and chatter as they watch the blackbirds from the window. They love it. Highly recommended.
I have been looking for a good cat tree for a long time, to replace the well loved old one. We have three cats, two young ones and a lovely old gentlman who cannot climb very high now. The two young ones fight to be top cat, but both love the dens for a nap. The old gentlman sleeps on a pillow on the bottom in between the pillars. He love it there.
I bought this super cat tree for my two burmilla kittens. They love it! It is a wee bit pricey, but it is really robust and stable - I think it will last the test of time, so will be worth the extra money. It looks attractive in the house too. Excellent service - ordered friday and delivered tuesday. A found it a little tricky to understand the instructions at first, as they are just in pictures, but once I got started it went together fine. Recommended!
I thought hard about buying this tree because it's not cheap but it is really worth it. I have an indoor cat who loves climbing it and sitting both in the dens and on top of it. It's very solidly made and looks good as well.
I got this tree for my two cats who live indoors only. It's fab! They love it and it looks great. Wee bit expensive but worth it if you want a decent cat tree. My only disappointment was that the silican balls were all over the box when it arrived and I was frightened my cats would swallow them.
This tree is amazing... my 2 Turkish Van kittens took to it straight away - they play and sleep in/on and on top of it! With 6 scratching areas they sort their claws as they scale it and leap between levels for even more exercise. It is tall and really solid with a great platform at the bottom where I lay all the cat toys for easy access. It is expensive but worth the money and looks great in the home too. It's received many compliments for being a nice piece of furniture in its own right too!
Having already purchased the cats empire frame which my cats love. I wondered how I could justify spending so much money on a second frame. Worry not the second it came out of the box my three cats were climing all over it (while hubby was trying to put it together)It looks fantastic and is so strong 2 of my cats are ragdolls(big) it is so well made all 3 cats use it at the same time am sure there's even enough room for a 4th or 5th cat!!
