Eight years ago, I purchased the Cat Daddy approved A6501 unit. It was time for a new one. I contacted the store via Facebook and voicemail. They got back to me quickly and were incredibly resourceful and reliable. These cat trees are top quality craftsmanship. They still had the same model I bought years ago because it is that popular. Do yourself a favor and do business with Armarkat. Great quality product, great shipping and amazing customer service! I am so happy with this tree and my cats love it--it is so full of scratching space! My cats can sleep in a couple of different places and jump. WOW! I cannot speak highly enough of this product!
We had this tree for 14 years and just bought a brand new one because the old one was finally too much to fix. Nothing lasts that long! Love the new one!
Overall, very happy with this tree. Cats love it. I ordered it on a sunday, it shipped on Monday, and arrived Tuesday. Great service. The little "hut" is too small for adult cats, so I took it off. My cats enjoy having the full space to stretch out anyway. The rope attachment is fairly useless, too, but I took that off so they could have another full shelf, and the cats like it better that way. Aside from those minor quibbles, I am very satisfied with Armarkat, and with this cat tree!
I would have to say that I'm very happy with this cat tree, with a few minor issues. I ordered the tree on a Sunday, it shipped on Monday, and arrived Tuesday, so I was very impressed with the delivery time. Usually, "free" shipping takes a week or more, but not in this case.
My cats love the tree, and use it all the time. It seems to be good quality, and even though it does wobble a bit (as others have mentioned in their reviews), I think this is to be expected, and don't see it being a problem.
My only quibbles with this tree are:
I'm not sure why the rope attachment is on the upper shelf. Maybe other cats find it amusing, but neither of mine do. It just seems to waste a shelf. I actually took the rope off and assembled it the opposite way, so that it's attached to the bottom of the shelf. Cats like to be up high, so this gives them an open space at the top.
Similarly, the "hut" in the middle shelf seems like a good idea, but only for smaller cats. My cats are fully grown, and they can't fit into it comfortably. My cats aren't even big (or overweight). So I removed the hut too, and now they have another full shelf to use.
My cats don't use the hammock, either, which surprised me. One of my cats loves to lay suspended on the underside of our box-spring liner, so I thought he'd love the hammock. Maybe he'll discover it someday, but so far he hasn't really been interested.
Aside from these minor issues, I love the cat tree, and highly recommend it. I also give top marks to Armarkat for making a quality product, and using fast shipping!
We have two cats. They both love this tree. It has lots of scratching posts, so it helps save our furniture! Other reviews mention that the tree shakes and wobbles, and that's true, but it's very sturdy, and I'm not worried about the minor movements it makes when the cats climb on it.
We were also impressed with the speed of delivery, too. We ordered on a Sunday. It shipped Monday, and arrived Tuesday. Since shipping was free, I expected it to take a long time, so it was a nice surprise to receive it so soon.
The only complaints I have with this product are with a couple of minor issues. First, I'm not sure why there's a rope attached to the top shelf. My cats never touch it, and it gets in the way. I ended up removing it, and now the cats use that shelf to stretch out and nap, or when they play together. Also, the little "hut" that's attached to the middle shelf is a bit too small for an adult cat. One of my cats went right into it after I assembled the stand, but when he tried to lay down, his head didn't fit comfortably, so he couldn't really enjoy the space. I think if it were bigger, they'd love to lay in there and take a nap. However, I ended up removing that too, and now they use that shelf to lay on, or when they goof around on the tree.
I thought one of my cats would love the hammock (before we bought the tree, he loved to crawl into the box-spring of our mattress and nap in the liner, which hangs down like a hammock), but so far, neither of them have used it.
In general, we love the cat tree. The price and free shipping made it far cheaper than any pet store in our area. The quality is very good. I think they could eliminate a couple of the less-useful "extras," but otherwise, no complaints. We will definitely order from this company again!
My sister purchased this cat tree first and when I saw how much her cat loved it, I had to get one for my boyfriend's two cats. It is good quality for the money. I plan on buying another one for my two cats next!
We have had this tree for about 5 years. Our cats LOVE it! You can't beat it for the price either. our cats didn't like the fort, or the hammock, so we removed them, but they lay on every level. It is only now starting to need replacement parts but the beautiful thing is that we can order them! AND the only part that needs to be replaced is the scratcher areas, the rugs are holding up just fine! I can't recommend this enough!
We ordered this for our cat and kittens. They absolutely love it!They all love climbing on it and sleeping on it. They use every level. They use the scratching posts and have so much fun with the hanging ball. The kittens each take turns on the top level, sometimes two of them get to be king of the hill. It is fun for us to watch them all climbing and playing on it. Since the kittens are full of energy it is a great addition to our house. We highly recommend this quality product. It is sturdy even when our cat and three kittens are on it. It was easy to assemble.
I ordered this model 4 years ago when we only had 6 cats. We had never had a cat tree before. Our cats love it; they stay on it all the time. In fact, they fight for the top perch. Well, they pretty much destroyed it so we are ordering another one. We now have 9 cats so I am sure they will be fighting for the hammock. If you order this cat tree, you will not go wrong and your cats will love you for it!!
