It’s empty in here!
Quick delivery, only base and top to assemble (I had to push the screw down each time for it to connect before being able to tighten it). Lovely item, cats were in it within 30 mins of it being put up. Removable bed bases for the 3 slots are a bonus which I was not expecting. It's neat and tidy. XXL is quite big with plenty of room for my 6kg cats. Thank you so much.
I Think I will have to purchase another as my lot have been queued up to use it. Very good size my 8kg cat has plenty of room to sleep in the cubby holes. Disappointed with the bed fixing at the top, I only received it today so let’s see how it holds up, let’s see how long the novelty will last. Cats being cats lol. It is very sturdy even with 4 large cats in it at the same time. I will need to rearrange the room to fit it in, worth the money paid. Cats used it as soon as it was put together
We’ve had this since we got our 2 kittens, 3 years on it still looks like new and they sleep in it every day. Best cat buy!
The barrel is the best bed ever. My cats love it.
My previous review was for a different product. This cat scratch barrel is fab and is well used by my cats. 3 months on it remains in perfect condition.
Bought this as I needed something big,strong and substantial for mybigbengal boy and savannah lady and they love it. It's very well made and they have hours of fun and sleeping on it. Had some delivery issues withfixings n top bed missing but Zooplus sorted it rapidly. I made extra cushions for the chambers out of a luxury cheap throw and they love it. Sorted out the scratch pole issue as my boy was pulling the pole down due to his size. I would recommend this all daylong and will buy another.
No instructions or fixings. Only small pieces of Velcro to attach mats and beds to. Expected better.
My two moggies love it and both take turns on the top spot. The loser uses the lowest spot. At the moment the two middle spots are being ignored but I'm putting that down to awkwardness of getting in to them. My Maine Coon likes it but only if he can get the top spot, which isn't that often as the two moggies tend to hog it between them. Buyer beware, it's HUGE and comes ready built in a ginormous box.
Ordered this for my two cats as an alternative to a cat tree as their last one literally fell to pieces. This barrel is excellent quality and was easy to assemble. Love the removable cushions so easy to keep clean. It is so sturdy that my heavier boy can jump straight up with no wobbles unlike their cat tree. The cats absolutely love this. This is a fantastic product and such a good price for this well made product.
Simple to put together, very sturdy, looks great and most important, my cats love it. There is always at least one cat using it, most often a cat on each level. Will get a slightly smaller one for my bedroom. Its a big scratcher/den and will accommodate big cats, but takes up very little floor space which is very useful for smaller rooms. An all round winner
As soon as the box was opened and the parts came out she was very inquisitive. My cat loves it! A 5* from Buttons the cat.
After a bit of messing around (first time in 6 years I have had a problem with delivery but turned out it was actually forgotten and zooplus went out of their way to fix the slip up) this finally arrived!!! I showed my two terrorists (1 Maine Coon and 1 Ragdoll) and at first they didn't even want to look at it but slowly, slowly curiousity got the better of them and now they play and sleep in this great product!! It is very sturdy and takes their jumping around in it - They love it!!
I am very pleased with this cat barrel and my two cats are getting accustomed to it. The ground floor has been colonised and the top level inspected and found good. I think it is the ultimate in luxury and could not be improved upon.
I was a little sceptical at first regarding the quality and usability of the product. But I was not disappointed, Louie my beautiful Siamese Cat absolutely loves it. I've also got brilliant space saving storage compartments in the top two for his toys and use the bottom one for my Bishon Fise toys. Couldn't have worked out more perfect. Love love love it. Delivered in super quick time too! I'll upload a photo of Louie enjoying his new found advantage point so you can check it out for yourself.
Arrived today. The packing was badly damaged, but the contents were fine. One cat watched me put the top on and then jumped on, the others quickly followed.Sturdy, stable and comfortable.
Well this arrived today and my oh my the cats have gone totally nuts over it. Plenty of fun and laughs from us all watching them play on it - I don't think the elasticated pom poms will last very long but it was well worth the money - only wished I bought it sooner. Great product looks like it will last for years.
My four year old persians have wrecked four other scratch posts but I think this one might beat them. Well for a while at least. It's the heaviest, sturdiest, best built yet.
Been waiting ages for this to come back into stock and finally got it. Well, all I can say is I love it and my two blue boys do too. As soon as I unpacked it they were straight in it . Five hours later they reluctantly left it for food and a play and then straight back. Delivery was amazingly quick considering it travelled from Germany. Packaging was great and the barrel is really strong and gorgeous looking. It matches the xxl cat tree I bought. Would definitely recommend.. Love Zooplus.
Bought this for large British Shorthaired cats. They love it. It is firm and sturdy and covered with cream coloured sisal which they can use for scratching and climbing. Very hard and much better than rope. The top and the cushions have all been washed many times and still maintain their shapes.
Bought this for our three cats last month and they love it. When it arrived they were all very inquisitive to find out what was in all the openings. All three like to scratch on it leaving the furniture safe. The bottom is often slept in and our year old Jessie has claimed the top as her bed. Very well made and fast delivery. Thank you Zooplus.
I first bought the Diogenes XXL Scratching Barrel and thought it was fantastic. Then we had to look after my step daughters new kitten. I have never laughed so much in my life at the antics of the kitten so much so that I gave it to my step daughter and immediately ordered the Natural Paradise XXL Scratch Barrel which has just arrived. As the last commenter said the top wooden support for the padded bed is far to large and prevents the kitten getting into because of the overhang so I will be taking the persons suggestion and remove it and fix the bed to the top of the barrel. I am also disappointed that there is no tunnel between the first and second levels as per the Diogenes XXL Scratching Barrel. My step daughters kitten got so much fun out of the tunnel diving from one level to the other and also playing with the hanging toys. Our kitten (A Maine Coon) doesn't arrive until November so I do have time to change things but I really didn't know that the two models were so different.
lovely looking and lush product. my cats love the top bed it is so comfy it is now their preferred sleeping area. only problem was the board that screws on to the top. it sticks out slightly beyond the top bed so my less agile cat climbs up the barrel to the top but then gets blocked by the board.my other agile cat just jumps up no problem. I have placed it near a chair so my less agile cat can use it too. but I may screw off wooden top and attach the bed to the top of the drum instead and use the solid round board for under an unstable old scratch post I have. a friend that visited liked it so much I have to order her one as well.
oh wow this barrel arrived about 30 mins ago and wow the 3 cats love it in fact we are going to purchase another 1 at the end of october the quality is superb very sturdy if you want this for your cats do not hesitate for one moment purchase this now.
Received this item today and all 3 cats loved it , its big enough for my 2 large Maine coons and my Ragdoll to fit in with ease .
Absolutely delighted with the one I bought - always full up so I am buying another one!
My ragdoll and BSH can both fit comfortably in the holes which is good as my small moggy normally bags the top! Nice neutral colours and well built.
Well made, a must for multi cat houses. My four were in it straight away. They loved the toy in each compartment. They can easy get to the top via the sides. Looks good in the lounge.
This is a fantastic item my three cats love it. Quality is excellent. Delivery time very good. Quite expensive but very good value for money
This is absolutely gorgeous my two cats love this already built for you on arrival, well sturdy well made great price for what you get. It looks so posh lol
I had been looking at this barrel for a while. Finally bought it and very pleased with it. Great product! Very sturdy, and my cats love it. Great for a multi-cat household.
I had been thinking about getting this barrel for a while. Now I have got it, my cats think it is wonderful! It is well made and very study. Would recommend this product to anyone with a multi-cat household. Well worth the money.
The barrel is well made. The kittens love it. They like the different little pods built in and each one has a toy and bed with it. The interior is lined and the outside is one big scratching post. It looks great in our lounge. Arrived quickly and well packed.
I bought this scratch barrel after seeing at another house and our new kittens just adore it. Its a top quality product, well made and very sturdy. They love curling up in the different levels for a quick snooze. Definitely well worth the money.
After we bought this our cat stopped scratching the carpet. It s very stable
I have three fully grown house cats and they love this. They jump all over it, around it, into and out again! It stands on tiles in the corner of our dining room, and is very entertaining for us and guests. It is very stable and never moves. Its worth the money and the space.
My cats are quite fussy but this has been an instant hit. The dens are very popular and have become a new favourite. My large Birman has climbed up the side and it doesn't even wobble ( see photo) I've placed it by our bedroom window and the top bed is great for my nosy cats keeping an eye on what's going on outside. I am really happy with this product.
I have four ragdolls, and they just love it!!! It's very sturdy and easy to put together. They are always on or in it, thinking about getting another one.
We have 2 cats, one being a very active Maine Coon. We needed something to suit both cats. The barrel is very sturdy so holds still when leapt on by the MC but also provides a lovely hiding place lower down for our 10 year old Calico.
We have 2 main coon and they love this a well bought scratch pad good height and they love the beds
Excellent barrel so sturdy my cats have not left it alone since it was delivered and love the removable beds.
