Pros: Sturdy, doesn't wobble much

Cons: Default configuration doesn't have much space for bigger cats

This is a huge tree. It is also deceptively simple to install by one person, although the stairs may take a bit of creative wrangling to get them into place.

 

It doesn't wobble much. My cat uses it as a launching pad to get on to the windowsill to pounce at birds and squirrels, so the tree has seen some rough tumbling. It's still sturdy after a year, and I didn't have to do anything more than periodically tightening the pillars. The walkable areas are made of soft faux fur material, which feels very luxurious, and given how much my cat likes laying on one of them, I'd say he likes those too.

 

The downside is that the default configuration can feel rather cramped for a bigger cat. My 15lb cat likes to sleep on the perches, but his body doesn't fit wholly on the perches. Some cats may not mind it (clearly mine doesn't), but some may find it uncomfortable. I also ended up having to remove one of the three perches to make another flat space area where he can lounge, otherwise it seems to block access to the higher perches.

 

He uses it often enough that I definitely got my money's worth.

Pros: ~Very tall ~Gives cats a great perch ~Easy to vacuum ~Easier to move than others ~Cats love it ~ It is great for excessive

Cons: ~I had to self-ensemble and it was a bit tricky ~Cats chew strings off of toys

The simple fact that I had not bought one of these sooner saddens me. This cat tower has been nothing but purrrfect since I brought it home. It stands taller than me and I am 5"11', it makes a great safe spot for my cats that also doubles as a lookout post. My kitties spend hours sitting in the top perches watching everything outside the window and have been known to fall asleep all over it(even half way down the stairs!). It is great for excessive as well, as I have seen my cats climb this tower only to run back down and try to climb it from a different angle. It is extremely easy to clean as long as your vacuum hose has a carpet attachment and it is much easier to move around my house than other cat trees and towers we've had before. I'm not sure how, because it's bigger, but it is lighter and easier to manage. 

 

The only real downside is that it comes in pieces and you have to build it yourself. It caused me a bit of frustration putting it together and I'm usually really good with IKEA furniture. Total building time reached about an hour because had I put a few pieces on wrong and had to re-do it. The other smaller downside is if you happen to own a cat who loves to try to chew or swallow string then be careful. There are little toys attached to some of the pieces via elastic strings and one of my cats found a new pastime in trying to chew them off the tower so she could eat them. About 10 minutes and a pair of scissors fixed this and the cats had some new string-less mouse toys to bat around on the floor.

 

All in all the downsides are greatly outweighed by the positives and I would easily recommend this tower to any of my friends with felines.
