Cat tried to play on tree while assembly in process. Loves the tree. However, the highest platform was not drilled for assembly, so I had to drill it myself. I was also able to easily position the top platform to meet my home configuration.
Cat tree arrived quickly. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Went together quickly with no problems. Love the fact it can be disassembled and that worn parts can be replaced. Jetty the cat was exploring it within minutes of it being assembled!
We just received our Kitty condo, as my teen daughter calls it. Lovely fur covering and quite easy to assemble. We chose the tallest model and are pleased our new kitten will now stop climbing the furniture. Only one glitch, the upper most level came without a drill hole. We had to spend an extra minute drilling a hole to complete the construction. We´ll let you know in a month after wear and tear how the condo fares. Thanks for a well built FUN toy for cats.
As we eagerly awaited the arrival of our new kitten, my husband and I ordered this large cat tree. Our cat is a large breed and we expect she will reach almost 14 pounds, hence the need for a large-sized tree.
Assembly is required. My husband did not have much trouble navigating the process. However, one shelf of the tree was not pre-drilled as it was supposed to be. He had to drill a hole himself or we would have had to return the piece to the company and wait for a replacement part. It was hardly worth it to go through all that trouble and wait time, but it was an inconvenience for him to interrupt the assembly process and bring the shelf to work where a drill was available for use. Once the hole was drilled, he was able to complete the assembly. Attaching the hammock was quite a difficult feat. The small hooks were very hard to squeeze and hook onto the flimsy rope loops provided for attachment.
Overall, our kitten seems to enjoy this tree, however, there are a few issues. One is that she has never gone into the hammock, hence it is a total waste. It looks cute, but we would prefer a ramp or shelf or some other option she would actually use. She avoids the hammock entirely. Perhaps she is fearful of its instability, but clearly we cannot read her mind! We only know she is not a fan!
The major issue, however, is the tree does not seem sturdy. It wobbles whenever our kitten jumps onto it, climbs the posts or jumps from it or plays on it. This is worrisome to us as kitty parents and wonder what will happen when she more than doubles her weight and size. We question the quality of this tree due its wobbly, unstable nature. We are disappointed and wonder why this brand of tree was recommended so highly by our cat's breeder.
ARMARKAT: It was recommended so highly because, as you say, "Overall, our kitten seems to enjoy this tree." Helpful hints: I wonder if your husband felt for the hole before drilling a new one? Often, they can be partly covered by either fur or fleece. However, if you had requested replacement, it would have arrived within days. Next, you could've chosen a model with a ramp instead of a hammock, but who knows what each kitten will prefer? My cat uses the hammock to store her cat toys! Finally, did you read the assembly instructions which remind the owner to regularly tighten all screws to ensure stability? I hope these hints were helpful and you will begin to enjoy the tree as much as kitty!
Easy to assemble and was in use as soon as it was set up! My two cats are thrilled and love playing in their new "tower". Couldn't be happier with the quality, price and speedy delivery. Thank you!
Easy to put together and looks nice. Cat loves to climb to the top. Free shipping is a bonus.
Where to start? A fantastic cat tree, easy to purchase online, free shipping, and I put it together myself in a matter of minutes. I wish all my online shopping was this easy.
