Armarkat cat trees are quite cat/kitten friendly. Well built in that this tree should last my kitten a long time. I am starting up a tiny 4 cat cattery raising Bengal cats and this is perfect for the occasion. Very sturdy, yet large and easy to put together with all pieces "lettered" for the faint of heart that can sometimes get overwhelmed with long, boring instructions/manual. Simple tools, simple instruction sheet are provided for you. The fur is very soft to the touch and easy to clean. The size of the houses or boxes it has, are nice sized with plenty of space to slumber and ledges to climb! The stairs are an added plus. overall this cat tree was one of the best investments I have recently made for my cattery and the price is exceptional for this kind of quality. You can tell, this tree was made with the active or lazy cat cat in mind. You can't go wrong.
Great Product With Some Drawbracks
Jennifer from Granby, MA – Verified Buyer
I have owned this product for approximately 1 month now. I have a young cat who is about 6 pounds, and is very active. This cat tree continues to be one of her favorite places. I did not attach the included toys, for safety reasons. Instead, I added well-secured short strings in those areas, and I scattered a couple of her favorite toys in various areas. She took to it immediately. The promotional photos can be a bit misleading, so I wasn't sure to expect when this item arrived. Upon opening the package, there was a strong and very unpleasant chemical-glue odor. 3-5 days of sunshine and fresh air removed most of the scent, though a hint continues to linger, even after a month. The scent is fairly subtle now, though my cat seems oblivious to it. Still, I wouldn't recommend this to any person or cat with serious allergic sensitivity. I personally am somewhat sensitive, but I no longer have problems with the scent. After airing the disassembled pieces, I set up the cat tree in a corner of the house (with no added weighting, or having to secure it to the wall). I have experienced absolutely NO trouble with the wobbliness that many others have mentioned. If I had a large feline or multi-cat household, however, I would absolutely bolt it to the wall for added stability. My only genuine complaint is about the screws included for assembly. My shipment was missing one of them, and others were noticeably discolored with what I believe was rust. I haven't heard back from the company regarding this issue. Overall, given the size of such an item and the amount of effort required, combined with my cat's enjoyment of it, the price is absolutely amazing. The overall quality is NOT absolutely amazing, and it's not 100 hassle-free, but in my opinion, this was still an *excellent* purchase.
my cats love this
anne from Va – Verified Buyer
Well made and easy to assemble - and tools are included! Took me less than an hour! Unlike some products - this product has NO particle board. Items are made with birch/ash or MDF - pieces are covered with really soft faux fur and sisal on columns perfect for scratching...saw here that they are made of cardboard, but you'd never know - ends are hard plastic. One of my cats had become a one cat wrecking crew trying to get to greater heights destroying a favorite vase trying to get to family room mantel - now perched on the highest platform, he's king of the world and the rest of my possessions can safely stay where they are. Price was extremely reasonable given alternatives in local pet stores(and better made), and I didn't have to drag it home. Delivered to my door in two days with free shipping. One thing I would say is this is BIG with a pretty large footprint. Initially was going to return due to size, but the benefits of having it have turned out to be worth it. If you have a tight space requirements, make sure you check dimensions before purchasing. All things considered, would definitely purchase again if need arose and definitely would recommend to friends.
Great tree for the price!
Daniel from Jemison – Verified Buyer
Got this for my cat to give him a spot just for him, away from the new stray puppy we took in. After some easy quick assembly, and some cat nip for enticement, our cat was all over this thing. It was easy to set up, the quality of the materials was satisfiable, and so far we haven't had an issue with the fabric shredding or tearing. He also uses the rope pole scratching posts on this tree more than his old carpeted scratching posts. One con was the chemical smell right out of the box, but this cleared up after an hour or so of airing out the parts. I also have my tree backed into a corner, so I cannot address to its true wobbliness as our cat jumps off, but he is a 12lbs cat and so far we haven't had issues with the platforms coming loose as he plays on them. Pros: Great value, easy set up, stood up well so far, cat loves it. Cons: some smell out of box but that clears up
Compact Entertaining Tower
T from AL – Verified Buyer
Easy to assemble except for the ramps. The holes didn't line up for the bottom ramp, but frankly it seemed unnecessary so I just left it off. The compact footprint makes it easy to place in a room without it taking over the entire room. However, the compact design does make it a bit tight for full-grown cats to maneuver around. Still they seem to enjoy it. I may even take off the top ramp to give them more room since the adult cats really donÃâât need the ramps. I can always add it back if they need it as a senior cat or kitten. The plush carpet is a nice touch but thin, so I added extra pads to the two caves for cushier sleeping. The additional pads also cover up the exposed bolts. As for moving around, be careful if dragging across a wooden floor, as the bolts will scratch your floor. I added felt pads over the bolts to protect my floor. The felt pads also make it easy to slide the tower to different locations. I added extra pads along the edges of the bottom to ensure the tower remained level. IF you don't want to add felt pads, you could also use furniture sliders (rubber discs you can buy from many stores) to easily move the tower around by yourself. All in all, a good purchase and a fun interactive piece for my cats to explore and play on.
Fine for large cats, too!
Sarah from Roanoke, Virginia
We wanted to get a cat tree for our larger cat who has gotten too big to clean his own bottom! He lays around quite a bit and we know he'd be happier if he lost some weight; he's currently around 15lbs...this will be some extra exercise. My biggest concern was getting something that was big enough to fit him, and I was concerned reading the dimensions of the perches, that he would be too large...but still, these were some of the biggest I saw, so we went for it. I was also concerned that the height may pose a "wobbing" problem considering both of our cats are on the large side (the other at around 12lbs). We unpacked it today, put it together in "exactly" 30 minutes (easy, easy), and took plenty of pics along the way. Both cats fit perfectly fine in all cubbies (they both tried to fit in the smaller house and it fit all of one and half of another). It wobbles slightly (and not problematically at all) when they are on top jumping around, which they were doing by the time I got home today (about 3 hours after putting it up at lunchtime). The packaging was fantastic, box completely undamaged and parts all in great shape. Everything fit together perfectly and we had to make no modifications. The color is exactly what we see in the pic. The material is great...feels like one of those really soft blankets our cats love, and our cats aren't scratching it (which would wear it down faster) because they quickly found the scratching posts and are going to town on them, too. This was a really great find and a wonderful deal. I expect to have it around for a very long time to come. Our cats haven't moved off of it since I've been home today...they're very happy with their "present". My only advice is to park it next to a window...they really enjoy getting up high and being able to see outside now--I think that's half the fun. If it went against a wall, they would miss out on this aspect.
Everything Promised and More!
Kay Smitty from Virginia – Verified Buyer
I must have spent over 2 hours looking at cat trees online and reading reviews. I finally decided on this one because it had over 300 reviews and only a few negative things were said about it. I was a little hesitant to buy one with faux fur (I originally wanted carpet) but decided this was the one I should get. The directions were very clear and everything went together very easily. And the faux fur isn't ugly at all; really, it matches my carpet perfectly. My cats absolutely love this cat tree! They play on it together, sleep on it (both inside the boxes and on top of the columns), and love to sit on the top and watch the world outside. The platforms are sturdy, which is good because my 2 cats jump up and down from it all the time. I could not have asked for a better product!! Especially considering how low the price is. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone looking to give their cats a jungle-gym and the ability to enjoy vertical space. This was a great investment to the health and happiness of my cats...no regrets at all.
Jill from Christiansburg, VA – Verified Buyer
the directions that come with this cat tree is excellent! It was so easy I put it together myself. Maybe a little over an hour. my two beautiful for babies were laying on it before I even started putting it together. It's slightly wobbly at the top. But not enough to scare me. This is great for big cats as mine are very solid however one is 15 the other is 12 pounds. Within 5 minutes ,both were at the top. of course a little cat nip didn't hurt. Well it's now bedtime and one is curled at the very top and the other one is behind the lower box. I'm very happy with my purchase it was money well worth it and my babies are happy.
Love this tree
Sabrina from Chicago, IL – Verified Buyer
i bought this tree 5 year ago, have moved it to two different homes across country, used it on a 5 day road trip in a van for my cats, and it is still in amazing condition. The top three perches sometimes get a bit loose or wobbly, but I haven't had any trouble tightening them. The perches will probably be the only parts of the tree that won't last forever, but the rest is wonderful. Love this tree.
MY CATS LOVE THIS!!
Tricia from Bakersfield, CA – Verified Buyer
I ordered this straight from wayfair.com due to the good reviews I have read and so far it has not disappointed in the least. Shipping was extremely fast, first of all. Instructions seemed to be easy for my husband to decipher, although it did take him a while to put it up. (He is a perfectionist). One of my cats was fearlessly prowling on it almost the moment it was all put together. My 2nd cat seemed unsure it would hold her so I coaxed her up with some treats to raise her confidence, and she hasn't moved from the top perch since. She seems to have claimed it as her own. My 3rd cat is afraid of EVERYTHING and the tower has been enough to even raise HIS curiosity enough to reach the first box, which is AMAZING for him. It is quite sturdy. Has a slight wobble to it, but not enough to deter my cats from there wonderful new toy. Over all I am very happy with this product at this time. If my opinion should change at some point I will update.
