Im Happy and so are the Cats
Susan from Fort Wayne, IN – Verified Buyer
I read through A LOT of reviews before purchasing this and I'll share my opinion regarding the common issues. The only improvements would be to cover it with carpet and not faux fur and make the round, basket hammock larger. The instructions were detailed enough. It's very easy to assemble, just make sure to separate all the parts before assembling so you make sure to use the right one. It seems very sturdy and I have two Bengals so that that's a concern. Some people complained the fur had a strange smell. I noticed a slight odor from the fur and rope, but nothing I wouldn't expect from something new like this. It didn't bother me and dissipated in a few days. I was worried about this from other reviews as I'm sensitive to this sort of thing. This is by far the best cat tree I've seen for this price and I'm very pleased.
Edited Review of Cat Tree: they like it, after all!
Shawn from San Antonio, TX
My first review of this cat tower - a couple of weeks ago, and a full two months after I'd assembled it - bemoaned the fact that most of the spaces were intended for kittens or very small cats (not my 14- and 20-lb. behemoths), as well as the fact that my cats weren't at all interested. Well, I need to amend that: both of them have discovered the joy of lounging on the platform which is about 2/3 of the way up. One of them also lobs cat toys (collected in the fuzzy "side" basket) all over the room, and sometimes even perches on the top roost! If your cats are more than just 5 or 6 lbs, they probably won't get much use out of most of the areas - but they might like the sisal-covered poles and the larger spaces, as mine do. Pros: Easy assembly; unit is large and sturdy; price is reasonable; fur covering platforms is soft. Cons: Limited usage for medium-sized or large cats; chemical smell when unit is unpacked (has to air out for a week or two).
If my cat could rate this, it would be 5 star!!

I have a 5 month old 'kitten' (although he's hitting that 'teenage-hood' period now) and he LOVES this cat tree. He especially likes the top platform where he can be above everything and feel superior, the way cats like. LOL The only reason I can't give it a 5 is because once he's on the top perch (or crows nest as we call it), the entire thing sways a bit. I know my husband tightened everything up when he put it together -- I just think the height and center of gravity take over. I'm kinda leary on how much it will sway as my cat gets bigger, because right now he's only 7lbs. Also, the 'hammock' at the bottom is hung on tea hooks and the loops of the hammock that attach to the hooks keep falling off, so we are constantly bending over to reattach it. I think I may have my husband just squeeze them shut around the loops so it doesn't come off any longer.
Cats LOVE it!!

My cats love this tree! It arrived well packed and was easy to put together (~25 minutes) - though I did have to work with the ladder a bit since there were no existing holes for the screws. It's very sturdy and is a great size for both of my adult cats to use. I was worried about the size due to a number of reviewers stating how small it is, however, I found that it was a good size - quite large, in fact (perhaps the reviewers simply have very large - or chubby - cats.) I would highly recommend this product. It took about 3 to 4 days for the cats to get comfortable using it (and my moving it a few feet closer to a window), but now it's hard to get them off of it. Great purchase (esp. for the price)!
Overall nice, but the smell is off-putting

I purchased this in beige and the color was pretty true to what was shown on screen. Assembly wasn't too difficult. The sizing of some of the components is better fit for a kitten or petite cats. If you have large cats or any who frequently enjoy bellying up to the buffet line, this isn't for you. (Probably better suited for cats 11 lbs and under.) This condo is also built upon the premise that your cat will climb up the poles or walk up the steps to reach the upper levels. Mine will do neither (prefers leaping) and so he never did take to the condo unfortunately. A lot of it probably has to do with the awful smell. Left it by an open window for days to air out and it took weeks before the smell dissipated, so beware of the noxious fumes around your kitty and house. Overall, it's priced right and looks a lot better than some of the cat condos on the market, so I would recommend it for kittens and smaller cats minus the toxic smells.
Kitty Loves the Tree
CarolinaGurl19 from Durham, NC – Verified Buyer
I originally saw this as a beige tree, but when it came to order beige was not an option only brown. I foolishly ordered the brown thinking the company really meant beige. It was late and I wasn't sure. I called Wayfair and found out it was indeed brown. I needed and wanted beige because this tree would be placed in a main living area and needed to go with the decor. The service rep was awesome! She stopped the shipment mid stream, got it returned, and fixed the business end of the deal to make sure I wasn't charged twice. I always get great customer service from Wayfair and will continue to do business with them. Lena loves this tree, there are so many great hiding places. Her favorite is to sit in the hanging basket on the second level. She completely fills the basket, but loves it. When she's in there she's so lazy she will just stretch her paws to reach the nearest pole to scratch. How lazy can you be? Oh, to live the life of a cat. Pros: Wayfair customer service, matches decor, well built, kitty loves it, easy to assemble Cons: The hamock underneath keeps coming unhooked when Lena tries to get into it. This has spooked her so she no longer tries it.

I bought this cat tree last Friday and it arrived yesterday (Friday) - great timing if you ask me!! This tree was easy to assemble and comes with an Allen wrench/Phillips head screw driver. As a 22 year old girl I didn't have a lot of tools laying around and I'm definitely not mechanically inclined - if I can do it so can you! The holes line up, I didn't have to drill extra holes, the funny smell is already gone, it's beautiful in my living room and matches my furniture and most importantly my cat LOVES it!!!! So very pleased with this product and it's worth every penny!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! :)
Just as described, LOVE it!

It arrived on time and in perfect condition (for the exception of 1 hole that wasn't drilled for the little stairs, easy to fix). The carpet material is soft with no loops, which is good no nails getting stuck. Easy to assemble for 2 people. Clear instructions and comes with the screws and tools needed. I went to Petc.. and PetSma.. and the type of cat trees available for this price were "to simple" in comparison. I love that this one has the stairs(20" H), hammock, cube (10" diam. x 12" H) and a little pouch on the side (12" diameter, not to deep for a big cat). The first two levels are 21" H from each other, and the base boards are 19"D x 26"W. It took my cat a little while to get used to it (even with catnip), but he uses it more and more everyday. My cat is adult, but not super big (roughly 8 pounds) and he fits perfectly.Overall I recommend this product.
Kewl cat tree
Lisa from Centerville, MA – Verified Buyer
Looked at hundreds of cat trees and was glad I chose this one. It was easy to assemble, and is real sturdy. Cats can jump on any of the levels without it rocking or tipping over. I have 5 adult cats and they love it! Like other people commented the hidey house and round tube are too small for my grown cats ( perfect for kittens ) , but I use them to store cat toys. Hint: if your cats are not using yours, sprinkle cat nip on the different levels. Also, sometimes it is a matter of moving the tree to a different spot.
One of my best purchases to date.
Ann from Laurence Harbor, NJ – Verified Buyer
As I am typing this, my cat just jumped up into her "bowl". She loves, loves loves her cat tree! She plays on all of the levels and gets a little crazy sometimes which is why the sturdiness of this product is good! Very easy to assemble and you CANNOT beat the price (just check your local pet chain stores, they do not even come close). Free shipping on large items is a definite plus too. Great to place in front of a window so your cats can check out the activity outside, you will just need to tie up the cords on your blinds 'cause they will try to swing on them! Very highly recommend these houses!!
