Pros: Armakat quality

Cons: Traps dirt a little too easily, hanging toy a choking hazard

This is a basic, simple option for a cat tree. It has one cubby hole, a few floors and a couple of perches. Nothing fancy, but it works. Armakat trees are known for their sturdiness and durability, and this one does not disappoint. The perches are rather spacious too; unlike the A7401 model, my big 15 lb cat fits snugly on the perches.

 

The downside to this is that the material traps dirt and hair very easily. Frequent cleaning and vacuuming is advised. Also, do not use the hanging toy that comes with the tree. Don't know what the manufacturer was thinking, but the toy (which is a fluffy ball attached to a *really* flimsy string) is a potential choking hazard. The string is so flimsy that there is real danger of an overenthusiastic kitty swallowing the string. Never leave the string toy unattended and never let your cat play with it unsupervised. You're better off just attaching the fluffy ball to a rod of your own to make a wand toy, than leaving it on the tree.

 

Otherwise, great tree that's going strong after almost two years.

Pros: easy to assemble, good size and height, good for all ages of cat

Cons: only comes in one color

We purchased this tree over a year ago for our cats Aya 5yrs old and Midori 12yrs. I was looking for a tree to fit in the living room in a corner overlooking the sofa and a window. We got ours from Amazon. It arrived quickly and I was able to assemble it by hand without tools in under an hour. One of the reasons I chose this tree was that I wanted a tall tree to satisfy our younger cat and something with a lot of easy steps that our older cat can use as well. It gets used everyday by our younger cat who likes the top perch which has ample room for the average size cat (9lbs) to lounge and practice their danglefoot. The slight depression formed by the roof of the cave is a good catch-all for toys and the cave provides a good place for play.

 

Downsides: this tree may not be big enough for two cats to feel comfortable using it at once, but we were looking to fit a particular sized space. It only comes in ivory fleecy carpet with sisal on the verticals. The stapled on toy is completely useless, unless you take it off the tree and tie it to a stick.

 

At a little over $100 for the tree we thought it was a good investment for the money and bought another Amrarkat product when we wanted a shorter tree for the furkids to look out the window in our French doors (we have half-lights). The verticals on this tree are wrapped in sisal. However the tree has been only infrequently used for scratching probably because of its placement in the room. I will say that our other tree (really a set of steps) by Armarkat has the same ivory fleece on the poles and Aya has already managed to tear a hole in it with aggressive scratching and we've had it for 3-4 months.
