I really like this cat condo. It's not only functional, but pretty to look at. It was very easy to put together. My only drawback is my cat has a large frame, is 12 1/2 lbs and does not easily fit on the perches or in the cubby. Her head hangs out one end and her hind end out the other. It's quite comical. She kind of teaters on the perches. I would highly recommend this condo for cats 10 lbs and under, but not bigger than that.

My cat is 4 years old, medium-large size. We've had her since she was a kitten and noticed lately she's been jumping up and scratching door entry ways. I'm not sure where she developed this habit from as she's got lots of scraching posts and corrugated cardboard scratchers too. I decided to buy her a cat tree thinking maybe she needed to climb, scratch, jump, etc... I had been looking all over from pet shops to other online retailers for a good size, not too big cat tree. This is a PERFECT item and she has stopped scratching the entryway of doors (HOORAY!!!). This cat tree is reasonably priced and alot less than pet stores. I caught it onsale and $1 shipping. It's of very good quality and she fits on all the stands just fine as well as in the little box. It's not a big box but just enough for her to curl up. Cats like tight spaces anyway. My only word of wise is: When putting the item together (which is very easy), take a close look at the OVERSTOCK.com picture of the stairs as the instructor picture of the stairs is not right. The stairs should fit OUTSIDE the perimeter of the base and NOT inside the base. Otherwise, it is very easy to assemble and I would recommend this to anyone.

I bought for my 12 week old kitten, thinking he would use it for a very long time. Within 3 months my Turkish Van was too big for it. He would run and then jump on it and it would rock. If you have a large breed kitten pass on this tree but if you have a small breed cat then this tree would be fine. The cubby is not adequate for my breed of cats.
For the price, this is an excellent tree for a small to average sized cat. I would NOT recommend it for larger guys and girls tho! Easy to assemble other than 1 piece that MUST go in a certain direction for the connections to fit in - and that piece is not marked. You got it, I put it in the wrong way! The hidey box would not be roomy enough for a large cat and I think it would be top heavy with a big guy up high. I wish the ramp had a lower connection also but that's minor and I could add it on my own. All-in-all a great purchase.
My two fairly good sized cats love it . The two perches work for them. I would suggest slightly larger perches as it would make it more comfortable otherwise it is a good place for them to hang out. They use the scratch posts as well. Only one cat has sat in the house?
Went together very fast, sturdy, and my cats hated it wouldn't even let me put them near it. So a little cat nip in all the right places and it's love, not using the scratching posts much but I no longer have a cat sleeping on my wall unit and knocking over all my pictures. Price was right for my budget and size is perfect for my small apartment, they are even fans of the hanging mice which are still attached.
Both the cat (5-year old) and kitten (6-month old) were playing on the cat tree before I even got it totally assembled! The tree was easy to assemble, and I have placed it in front of the window in my office where the cats hang-out while I work. It is a great addition, keeps them busy whether playing or resting. The kitten uses it more frequently, loves to get a running jump onto the top of the little covered condo and then jump up to the window . The toys were chewed off in a 'nano second' .... but considering I didn't purchase it for the toys ... that's fine! The cat tree is sturdy, they don't use the steps, which is also okay, but I did lodge one of their pop-up caves in the base, which they can run in and out of, or hide in, when they are playing.
This cat furniture went together easily and seems pretty steady for two medium sized cats. They did pull off the hanging mice quickly, but are quite happy to play with the hanging strings. I love the steps and the wrapped ropes for scratching paws on. :)
Assembles easily, the dual scratching posts get lots of use. I am not sure about the stairs/ramp, the cat hasn't used it yet, our cat is more of a jumper. The tree seems pretty sturdy for our cats size. The upper and mid level platforms are a hit. We are glad we got it.
It vas easy to assemble and it is very a nice cat tree. Love the color. The cat however still didn't warm up to it. Sadly will have to part with it since it is just sitting there.

I have no complaints about the product itself so far - especially considering the price point compared to other identical products from other vendors. My issue is really with the assembly. When a product says "Assembly required", it's always a crapshoot. This item fell short in that the manufacturers used short blunt-end screws where they really should have given long ones, the holes they made in the pieces didn't go all the way through and the allen wrench provided often didn't do it so I had to use my drill. Most of the instructions were clear sort of - hand-drawn pictures only, of course - but some of them were totally confounding. I also ended up using my own screws altogether on some pieces because their screws didn't work. Now, I'm a small woman and not especially strong. I got it together but it's way lopsided. Maybe someone stronger and more adept could have done a better job - but I'm pretty handy and I kind of represent the average Jane (hence my toolbox and drill). People like me are the customer base for this item. Maybe Go Pet Club could re-think some of their assemblage.

This is just the thing we needed for our cats. The younger one loves to lay on the very top platform play with the toys, and look out the window. Our older 16 yr. old cat likes to lay in the little house and sleep. I'm very glad we purchased this cat tree.
