Equipped with a multitude of platforms for lounging, scratching, and playing with enticing toys, this deluxe cat tower is made from durable wood and stylish faux fur. With a sturdy base to prevent tipping, this kitty condo is 72 high....more
We have 2 cats. They are about 10-12 pounds each. They are young. They are beserk. They haven't budged this thing since we got it set up in the living room and they are cirque de soliel on catnip. This thing is big, mind you, so make sure it will fit in the space that you're planning on putting it. But it's big for exactly the reason we purchased it. I wanted something high, but not so high I couldn't grab a cat if needed, and I also wanted something that both cats could climb at warp speed. This tree has 2 platforms on the bottom, so if one cat heads for one at dead run, the other can head for the 2nd platform, and the race is on to the top. I've owned one of Armarcat's trees before, and the material that covers the platforms isn't carpet, but lasts well...our last one is over 2 years old and has a couple of rips, but nothing major (and that took them through their kitten years!) The color is very neutral, so although this thing is BIG, if you have lighter color walls and carpet, it blends in well and doesn't look like a big gross monstrosity in your crazy cat lady living room. The posts are not really long enough for a normal sized cat to scratch on without having to crouch a little, so make sure you keep a scratching post elsewhere for maximum people furniture protection. The box in the middle of this tree is big enough for either of our medium sized cats, and would fit a large cat (18 lbs). The 2 high platforms are a bit small, but fit our 10 lb cats when they curl up. When it's hot, there always seems to be a limb hanging over, but they're still up there! No one has even gone near the hammock, so we store toys in it.
To address the "stinky" comment made by someone about Armarcat's trees, I have an uber-sensitive sense of smell, and I could smell sisal for the first day, but I think that's part of what attracts the cats to it in the beginning. The smell was never really strong, and was gone in a day or two.
Overall, I'm really pleased with the purchase. Sure, it would have been nice to buy one of those really trendy cat trees, but they were spendy and didn't look all that exciting.....carpet? Not sure I'd go back to a carpeted cat tree now. This is really easy to vacuum and basically looks new after every time we vacuum it. Happy? Yep. It's gooooooooooood. =^..^=

I did a lot of research before I bought this Armarkat Cat Jungle Gym. I have seven cats that are climbing on this tree. It is made very sturdy and I am pleased with the tree. I am thinking about ordering another Armarkat cat tree. I was able to put it together by myself, the directions where great.

We have an enclosure for feral cats and they love this cat tower/condo. There are enough places for them to sit without being crowded. I thought it might be a little wobbly, but the shelves on both sides balance it, making it sturdy enough. It was easy to put together and I did it by myself. I would recommend this product to multi-cat homes.
How is the quality of the product? Great quality but the material is a little thin.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
My cats have used this condo for a year. They love it. It has sufficient horizontal spacing to allow them to jump from one level to the next with ease, and not lose their balance. The faux fur is easy to vacuum. It's sturdy enough to handle four large cats at once, it's attractive but not distracting, and was easy to assemble. It is a superb product.
My five cats have a new play/sleep area. They enjoy running up the posts and hiding in the houses. I placed it by the window so they can see outside. I felt the money was well spesnt when I watched them the first day. They just loved it.

This cat tower is amazing. It is really really tall, but it doesn't feel like it's taking up the whole room in our tiny condo. We have 4 large Maine Coon cats and they all have no problem jumping around, playing, sleeping in/on it at all! It is very sturdy, unlike what some of the others reviews have mentioned. My large cats even fit into the box to sleep with no problems. We've had the tower for a month now and the toys are still hanging and the cats are still playing with them! They don't use the hammock at all but it is a good place to store toys and such (even dog toys!). For this price at the local big box pet store you couldn't get anything like this, plus free shipping! Amazing!
To the point: This thing is sturdy, soft (faux fur and not carpet), and very inviting and exciting for my cats. I have two very hefty cats - probably around 20 lbs and another cat who is of average size. All three of them hang out on this for most of the day. It's sturdy so it doesn't fall over when they scratch any of the posts. I couldn't believe what I paid for this. If you go to local pet stores, something a third of the size would be this price and it's not as aesthetically pleasing. My boyfriend put it together and he had no problems and it was pretty quick to assemble. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
I've been looking for the perfect cat tree for my 2 kitties for a long time. I have a 2year old 20lb Charlie, and a 1 year old 10lb Lola. I finally found the 72" armarkat a7202, and took the chance and bought it eventhough I didn't know they would definitely play with it. Since the day my fiance and I put it up (which was very easy) my babies can't get enough!! If only I could share the pictures and video I've taken!! My 20lb tabby, Charlie, hasn't moved from the condo, and Lola jumps and climbs the whole thing. They love it, and I'm so glad I bought it!!! I've never seen my babies so happy! They absolutely love the rope and balls on the strings, too! Lastly, I can't forget to mention the free shipping!! I'd recommend this cat tree to EVERYONE looking for an awesome kitty gym at a great "worth the money" price!! 5 stars!!!! Get it, they'll love it!
My 23lb.cat sits at the top or climbs all over this. Good exercise plus intrigues him. We hide his snacks all over this perch from top to bottom. He loves finding all. Only slight problem is that the crawl-in box part is a bit small for big cat. He does squeeze into the box if there is something to find but his big paws and long tail hang out of every opening. Funny cat.
