Pros: Already assembled, well-made, sturdy, lots of play space with small foot print.

Cons: Already assembled, may have delivery issues, price varies wildly.

First off, the price on this can vary a lot. Luckily we got it when it was at the lowest price (well under $200 w/ free shipping). Now it is more than double that price. With large purchases like this I like to check out the Amazon pricing history on the CamelCamelCamel site.

This tree is nice because it provides a lot of play space with only a 2'x2' footprint. It is 6" shy of our ceiling though so if the kitties are on top they can't stand up all the way. We put it next to a row of bookshelves so it is like their ladder access to the top of the shelves. It is very heavy and does move slightly when they get a a running start and go flying up it (especially the 16lb Mr. Tubbs). Our little girl cat likes to lay on top almost every night to monitor her minions below. She also likes to look out the nearby window from high up during the day. The sisal scratcher is plenty high and used mostly by the very tall Mr. Tubbs. It has held up pretty well for over a year and I just clip off some of the plastic threads from the clawed at carpet parts occasionally. We got the taupe colored tree which blends in pretty well with most neutral colored rooms.

Pre-assembly is both a pro and con. You don't have to assemble it... but you do have to figure out how to get it in the house and maneuvered into place. It is very big and heavy, measure well before ordering. It came by freight delivery services, not UPS or FedEx. I was informed by the driver that they are only allowed to leave it down by the street, and that most people aren't aware of that (he said with a very annoyed look). He was nice enough to help me get it up the driveway and pushed in the front door though. Plan to have some muscle and or a good-sized dolly on delivery day. I doubt anyone would steal it from your yard... due to the size! But, it comes just in a plain cardboard box that gets pretty beat up, no plastic. If left out in the rain or snow it would get nasty pretty quick.

Description:

This is the best cat furniture. Large beds and rest areas allow big kitties (or multiple ones) to lounge, stretch, and play! Our All Natural Thick Sisal Rope is just what your kitty wants to dig his claws into. Our premium handmade high quality cat furniture is made from scratch right here in the U.S.A. and requires no assembly - we do all the solid building for you. Because this furniture is handmade and not "modular", you'll get the sturdiest upright post that can be climbed up, scratched at, slept in, and peered out from. A real look-out tower for your kitty(s). We use solid pine poles in our construction along with heavy duty screws and bolts to build a piece of furniture that is more furniture than scratching post. But, it is a piece of furniture meant to be scratched - just what kitty ordered. This particular unit contains one condo, two cradles, two beds, and one 12" diameter tunnel plus 30" of all natural sisal rope for scratching. It stands approximately 7' 6" tall on a 2' x 2' base and comes in a beige color. NOTE: Because the product is handmade, dimensions vary slightly.
