Three paws up from my house
Fran from WI – Verified Buyer
I have three very active cats and this poor cat tree is already taken a beating! We received the tree in a very timely fashion, all the screws and bolts were accounted for and it was put together by one person extremely quick, once the cats stopped helping. Three things in the description I wish I had noticed before ordering were 1. the plush cloth covering, they were not kidding. Its the soft material stapled or glued onto the press board. no cushion for the claws to sink into. Its kind of like watching a duck trying to land on a frozen pond. 2. the three platforms on the top are perfect size but do not offer any side support. Its all cloth and a little foam. i now have to build on to the platforms so that one of my cats, who is not all that graceful to begin with, will not slide off of the plush covered press board again. 3. the base board . I think it should have been a little bit bigger and thicker. it really just keeps the whole thing together and that is it. It does very little for stabilizing. but I have gotten a few good laughs out of that part. It has not tipped over as much as the cats have tried. All in all this is not a bad product. For the price and a little extra time its well worth it.
Sturdy Kitty Condo for two... or more!
Lorene from Camarillo, CA – Verified Buyer
The color is much darker than the picture (I ordered beige), but it actually blended right in with my floor & wall color, so it's all good. Aside from being bulky to move about, this was VERY easy to put together. I followed the picture diagram carefully and had it completed in under 30 minutes with no assistance (and I'm a small female with neck problems). The only negative I found was the cheap faux-fur fabric which sheds A LOT initially and does not have any under-padding for platforms and none on the box interiors (raw press board). The platform beds at the top are actually much cozier than the ones pictured, but the stairs are not terribly stable since they are attached only by rope & the distance between platforms is quite steep, so I would not recommend for an older or unstable kitty. All-in-all this sturdy, compact & very tall tower is WELL WORTH THE MONEY and shipped out amazingly fast for free Saturday Fedex delivery the day after I ordered (UT to CA).
Lsrge Cat Tree
Marie from Plant City, FL – Verified Buyer
I purrchased this for my 6 fur babies. Since my daughter is grown and moved out on her own years ago, I'm a few cats short of being the "Crazy Cat Lady". I don't know the exact amount that qualifies me, buy I currently have 6, losing one a few months ago. This Cat tree is quite large and although I've yet to see all of them play on it at the same time, they could if they wanted to. It was fairly simple to construct and didn't take much time. But then I had so many "helpers" I may have been able to completed it faster without all the assists in my way. I should have assembled it in a empty room, without them. You may want to try that, depending on the number of furry assistants you have. I love it almost as much as they do
Cats Love It
Rita Wright from North Carolina
This is the second Cat Tree I own, my first is a little beefier but my cats Love this Cat Tree also. I have 8 cats that fought over the one High rest on the first tree to now they have plenty to choose from. They all seem to love every part of this Cat Tree. From the box cubbies to the three towers. Have to agree with fellow reviewers though, one hanging toy didn't last more than an hour, one is still hanging in there but barely. All in all, I didn't buy the Cat Tree for the hanging toys, I bought it for the three towers and the cubbies. They have more areas for to hang out or play on. Haven't had any problems with stability yet, and some of my kitties are not light weights. I have a variety of different size babies. They love it and for the price....cant beat it. Just wish it was beefier like my first tree!
Love this cat tree!
Paul Franson from Oklahoma City, OK – Verified Buyer
Love, love, love, love, LOVE this cat tree! I've looked at a lot of cat trees at the big box stores and, in addition to being expensive, they seemed like they could tip over easily. Our cats have a tendency to run and jump onto the tree, so we needed something with a little more bulk to it, but would also be easy to move when we rearrange the room. The bottom floor is wide enough to make the entire tree very sturdy, and it's carpeted so it slides easily across our floor when I want to move it. I agree with other reviewers that the second and third levels look a bit on the small side but our cat and our foster cat love it anyway. Our "resident" kitty likes to get up on the very top. In her old cat tree, which had solid sides all around the beds, she would hang her head over the side. In doing this, she would gag herself, but she wouldn't stop doing it. Now she has flat openings on the beds from which to watch the world below her. Our foster kitty enjoys playing in the boxes. Both were hesitant about it at first, but once I rubbed a little catnip on it, they were all over it!

The tree itself is not bad. My kittens like it! It's sturdy and my husband had it together in no time. The flat tower sections on top need to have sturdier sides. They have been flattened just by my kittens laying in them. Large cats would have trouble fitting in them. Don't order it for the ladders, they are only in the way. Ordered the beige one and got the mocha one. My biggest problem was the size of the boxes. I asked before I ordered, what size they were and when I got the tree, the size of the largest house was not right. I was given a discount to keep it since it was already put together, but I thought the discount should have been more

The Bel Air cat tree arrived in a timely manner last December. I was able to put it together by myself without too much trouble. The directions were not great, but I figured it out in time. The product appears to be well constructed and the material covering the cat tree seems to be holding up very well. My cats have not used the ladders or the boxes yet. I think it would have been more useful to have the ladders covered with the roping for additional scratching areas. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 was the one I received had carpet and roping on the vertical pieces and I would have preferred only roping on all the posts like in the picture. I have it sitting on carpet and it moves slightly with the pouncing of my three cats, but not enough that I fear it will turn over. I have a big tom cat and two smaller cats and they love. It is attractive enough that will look good almost anywhere. Overall I am very pleased with the purchase. The price was very reasonable and the product well made. Oh, and I received a nice cat toy with the purchase. Good quality and nice play toy for the cats. CJ
Sandy from Solana Beach, CA – Verified Buyer
My cat loves this thing and it is actually nice enough to keep out in the living room! The carpet is nice and tight, the twine is warped well and the color is soft and non offensive. it also hides his orange tabby fur perfectly. The unit is very sturdy and easy to put together. This was well worth the price! Pros: Great material, easy to assemble and nice looking Cons: Shipping box was huge and really hard to get in my house alone.
Claudia from Arlington, TX – Verified Buyer
This cat condo is great; both for my cats but also I enjoy watching them play hide & seek, chase each other and relax on the pads! I haven't been concerned with the stability at all; I really don't think they can knock it over because of the base diameter! I am very pleased with how quickly it was delivered, and only minor problems with the assembly and that was due to "user error", when not completely reading thru them as prompted!
Good, but small beds
Sara from Florida – Verified Buyer
Overall good quality, only complaint is that the beds on top could be a little larger in diameter. Our cats are slender, 10 pound adults and they barely fit. Other than that, very happy with it.
