Sherpa Cat tree
Shere from Naperville, IL– Verified Buyer
What I LOVE about this cat tree, is the use of sisal instead of carpeting. Its extremely difficult to find a cat tree that is not covered in carpeting. And who wants to reinforce carpet scratching Not me! So this tree is made of perfect materials. However, I only gave it 3 stars because the top perch has no side supports, and therefore is quite wobbly. Which perch do you think all 4 of my cats enjoy the most The top one, of course! Theyre cats, after all. I likely will have to add my own sisal-covered supports (hint to manufacturer...add side supports!). Overall, the price was great and the product was easy to assemble (although the instructions have no written words - just unlabeled illustrations).
Great cat tree
Robert from Monterey, CA– Verified Buyer
I have a big Siamese cat that loves to scratch and for the sake of my furniture got this cat tree. He loves it and it is pretty sturdy. If you buy one of these, it is best not to move it around as the screws in the center tube will become loose. A very good value.
Hard to assemble but kitties love it
Eileen from Secaucus, NJ– Verified Buyer
This cat tree is well made but was difficult to put together. It took two of us, a screwgun and a lot of patience. The middle platform with the tunnel is screwed into the poles with no additional suport and fell off after a while. But the cats love the extra tall scratching post!
Good tree for small space

The two rounded half-pipe pieces of this cat tree are very stable, but the top perch is a bit wobbly and a bit small for large cats. Our 12 lb cat can sit on the top perch, but if he sprawls sideways his head hangs over the edge. We're not using the loose bottom piece at all right now, but in the future we might get a couple more screws and screw it into the posts as recommended by another reviewer here. I liked how it was possible to choose any height desired for the half-covered piece (there are no preset holes in the posts), so we could make it very easy to climb for our older cat. Overall, it's a nice height for our cat to watch out the window and it maintains a relatively low profile in the room.
Fun idea but a little wobbly

I ended up using an adhesive after assembling it to make it sturdier. The top tier is still wobbly and my cat won't go up there.
Nice design but small perches
Jessica from Mahwah, NJ– Verified Buyer
I do like this tree and have quite a number of other trees by the same manufacturer. The disappointing thing about this one is that the perches are now SMALLER than before! This is a real shame because I rather pay MORE for the same quality than to have the tree compromised. The middle tunnel perch does not fit a normal adult cat.
window view with a low profile
Janet from Bloomington, IN– Verified Buyer
This is a nice mix-and-match set that can be constructed a number of ways. I put it together as shown but am not currently using the bottom free-standing piece. My cat likes to sit on the top perch to watch our the window or curl up to sleep (he fits at 12 lb, but I don't know if a much bigger cat would), or stretches out in the half-pipe to watch what's going on the kitchen. He doesn't use the half-covered, half-open piece except as a stair to the top or to stand on his hind legs with the front legs on the windowsill. It's a bit wobbly, but I've never found any cat tree that isn't, and it doesn't bother him. He enjoys stretching out to his full length to stratch the sissal. I think it's a good choice for indoor/outdoor cats who like to reach all the way up to scratch trees.
I assembled it so its half height, now I have spare parts for later
Faith from Brooklyn, NY– Verified Buyer
I got this cat tree because of its modest height, but its hard to gauge exactly how big a thing is going to be until you see it. Ended up assembling it so its half its intended height, and now I have extra scratching posts and tubes for when the cat shreds the existing ones. She loves scratching the sisal posts and curls up on the perches, though I agree with some of the other reviewers -- the top perch might actually be a bit small for anything but a kitten or a skinny adult cat. Overall would definitely recommend!
Ralphie & Mo from Massachusetts– Verified Buyer
We have 2 cats and they enjoy this. However, as noted in other posts, it's a bit wobbly. Specifically, the base is not so sturdy as its made of some type of particle board. So much so that when I picked up the tree to move it, the bolts connecting the legs broke through the base. I'm going to replace the base with a piece of 1 inch plywood and reconnect the legs with longer bolts. It's still a good price, especially if you're minimally handy and/or you don't move it around too much.
Our cat Ross loves it
Dominic Thibaudeau from Landenberg, PA– Verified Buyer
Arrived in a timely manner, easy to assemble, cat loves the top platform but the surface area is bit small. His legs hang out of it and the column is not too stable...it sways when he is climbing it.
