My cat LOVES this! It's said that cats are either ground dwellers or tree dwellers, and knowing what they are can help you to make them happy. Mine is a ground dweller and does not climb much, but I know she likes a good perch now and again. She also needed something with a hidey hole on the bottom for her playtime. This isn't too tall, so I figured this was a safe bet. I have also heard from behaviorists that cats like those curved platforms best, like the ones on this scratcher. My cat loves to scratch it, and she uses both platforms all the time. I thought the dangling jingly ball would go untouched as she's 10 and doesn't care about that stuff, but I was wrong! She plays with that sometimes, too. And the hidey hole is her favorite part of playtime now -- she has a great spot to hide when we play with her favorite teaser. Someone had mentioned that the scratcher smelled when it arrived and they had to air it out. I live in a small apartment and cannot take something outside to leave out to air. I did notice a light odor from the materials (and I'm very sensitive to smells) but it didn't bother me. After a couple of weeks I didn't notice it at all anymore. My cat was not bothered by the smell. I only wish Wayfair shipped faster!!
sturdy and my cats seem to like it!

I looked at a lot of options, before choosing this one for our two cats. This one is well built and less expensive than similar models I have looked at in pet stores. Many of the models looked good, but seemed to be intended for kittens, with the hidey places too small for larger cats. The tube is large enough for my cats (not kittens) to pounce through or lay in. The design makes for great climbing and ninja moves. The cats started scratching the posts as soon as I took it out of the box. They understood right away that this was their castle and they love laying on the top sleeper and gazing out the window. We have had it a couple of weeks, and the jingle ball is still intact, but even if that comes off, which I expect will happen eventually, this piece is still a great buy! I think my cats will get a lot of use out of it and it doesn't take up a ton of space, plus they have yet to knock it over!!!

I have been looking for a smaller cat condo for my 2 cats for several months now. I've looked at pet stores and at different websites but didn't find anything that fit what I was looking for or my budget. When I came across this cat condo I really liked the design and the fact that you could pick from a couple different color options (I went with the brown). After reading the reviews I ordered one and I'm so happy I did! It arrived on the day that it said it would come on, was already put together so all I had to do was pull it out of the box and put it where I wanted it. Its size is perfect for my apartment and fits great under a window. From the moment I pulled it out of the box my cats have been all over it. They love sitting on it to look out the window and they love scratching it, especially the sisal columns. Its not too heavy so it easy to move but it weighs enough that my cats don't pull it over when scratching it either. Pros: Already assembled, sturdy, perfect height for under a window

My cat loves this. He weighs 18 lbs. and there's room for him to relax on the curved sitting. Cats like to be cradled and this condo does the trick. The construction is sturdy and it arrives all set - no need to put it together. The height is good for an older cat - not too high. The price is a lot less than I've seen in stores too. Some people have said there's an odor when this arrives. There was none at all that we noticed. I'd recommend this to anyone.

Pros: I bought this for my mom's cat. The cat is a Manx and thus, doesn't jump like other cats. So I had to find something she could manage to climb. Mom says the kitty loves it and once she sprinkled catnip all over it, so was the cat! I wouldn't choose this color myself, but is mom's fav. It made mom and kitty happy campers so I give it high ratings. I've not actually seen it in real life; so I'm afraid to give it 5 full stars. Now her cat can snuggle and watch the snow fall thru the window in Northern Vermont! Cons: I think holes in the floors make for happier cats. Easier to climb. But I wouldn't consider that a true "con". I would recommend this cat Condo!
this is her new throne!

my cat is very content with this purchase, and so am I. She doesn't use the tunnel a lot, she thinks it makes her butt look big, I'm just repeating what she thinks.... No assembly required, my kind of project..... product was badly packaged but there was no damage to contents
My cat loves this perch !
Sara from Brimley, MI – Verified Buyer
this scratching post and sleep station arrived in record time and my cat was using it within a couple of hours - she likes to sleep/survey her domain in the picture window at the front of the house ...... the only drawback is that the curved pieces (where the cat would be laying), are not quite as sturdy as I might have like, but it is not so much a drawback that I would not have purchased this item had I known about it beforehand. I would definitely buy again and recommend it ......
New Cat Condos Scratch and Sleep
RDH from Massachusetts – Verified Buyer
Although this cat perch is very sturdy and well constructed there were several exposed sharp staples to be removed before being caught in little paws. The main disappointment is the STRONG very unpleasant odor which emits from the sisal upon first removing from the shipping carton. On company's suggestion of setting it outside for 2 days it seemed better but did not dissapate. Finally, in a week, after several light washings outside in the sun with pine sol, simple green, and lastly vinage rthe odor no longer permeates the entire room. I would hesitate to reorder from this company knowing all the work involved before letting the cats enjoy it.
My cat loves this!

My cat was becoming restless with his old cat tree and was in desperate need of something new. He is an extremely large Mancoon and loves to crawl through the dome and lay at the top shelf and pester my dogs. I have had the product for 3 months and the scratching posts show no wear at all (despite constant use). This item is very sturdy and well made. I recommend this to anyone looking for a medium height cat tree.
What I was looking for
Lori from Canton, MI – Verified Buyer
My younger cat is having a difficult time adjusting to the curved sleeping surface. He can't curl up as easily on it as he could the old one. However, he is using it as a scratching post faithfully. Even my older cat who is declawed uses it to "exercise" his claws. They both like dashing through the tunnel. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars was because of the curved sleeping surface. Otherwise, it's great. Pros: No assembly required! That was a huge plus.
