You can get them for under $100 on Ebay!!! I have two, my cats love them!!! Great deals, they would cost about $300 in a pet store!!!

How about making one yourself? If you have access to tools it is not very hard at all....and REALLY cheap!
If you are intrested then go online and type in "Cat trees" and take a look to get ideas of what you would like.

If you have a Wal-Mart nearby, they have an 8-foot-tall one with 3 platforms for only $35. I've had mine for about a year and even my 14-year-old kitty plays on it.

I actually made my own cat tree, it's 2 pieces of 2x4 screwed together together and then screwed into the center a piece of partical board about 1 foot square. then you staple gun some carpet remnants to it. I also put a slightly smaller piece of apolstered partical board on the top so they can sit up there and look out the window. The best thing is because I know how it went together I can replace the carpet whenever I need to.

I just bought one on ebay that was $35 for a brand new one (must assemble yourself) with lots of levels/scratching posts. With shipping it was $60 but still wayyyy cheaper than any other ones I can find of this size. Most start at $30 for the little beds with a scratcher..

Hi Kevin, We live in Edmonds and we really like All the Best Pet Care. They sell trees made by a gentleman from Everett. They're generally a mix of log posts and covered platforms. There are lots of knobby bits for cats to rub up agains, and I know a lot of people prefer to give their cats wood as a scratching material, so that's a bonus too. (Our's use the sisal covered posts we have scattered around the house, but hey, they have the option.) The trees look great, and even better Our 5 month old kittens love them. We have one small one about 2.5 feet tall that we have in front of the window in the bedroom. And another large one, about 5 feet, that we keep in the livingroom.

All the Best has a few locations around the city, I know there's one in Queen Anne and another one up on Lake City. We go to the one on Aurora since it's further North. I think there are at least three other locations, they'll have that info on their webpage. Just google them.

Hope that helps!

i looked at the wal-mart website & didn't see anything remotely resembling this - i'm thinking maybe they don't have it anymore?

walmart still carries it-- i bought one the other day for my kitten-- not everything in the store is listed on their website-- its just certain things-- Might want to visit a store to see if they have them.

Dr Foster and Smith has the BEST selection

Petsmart and PEtco are also ok and have some slightly cheaper stuff.

www.petsmart.com
www.petco.com

I buy a lot of stuff online because I own a small car and it is easier to have stuff shipped to you then picking it up at the store.

The furry ones are cheaper, but I prefer solid wood (vs. pressed wood) and carpet because Cupid really likes getting his little claws in the carpet. I plan on getting a furry one to set by the carpeted one as well, just for more room and climbing space. My favorite website for them is: http://www.catsplay.com/kitty_gyms.php3 and http://www.sittingprettykitty.com has some unique & pretty ones as well. Ebay has a lot of the furry ones for really nice prices also.
