Any home with felines can benefit from this large cat scratching tree. Cats will enjoy playing in the three condos and exercising on the steps and ladders. The natural sisal rope material means that your cat's nails will be safely trimmed every day....more
Item recieved very quickly and packaged very well. Instructions wern't very difficult if you lay everything out and go slow. Start to finish, I assembled in less than an hour by myself. I did use a drill but it is not really needed. Seems very sturdy and my cats were playing on it immediately along with our pet monkey. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a LARGE cat tree. I have 3 cats so it's perfect. My 14lb cat fits in the cubbys but the ledges are a little small for him.
I have three cats that are about 2 years old. They all had to share a tree that had only one basket and there was never enough room. We ordered this so they could all have their own area. Box arrived in no time at all. My husband and I put this together in about 30 mins. Just make sure to note the letters on the backside of each piece so you put it together in the correct order. It is tall and you can secure between the ceiling and floor with adjustment of top cylinder. Cats were trying to get in as we were building it and love it. Two things though are the size of the baskets which are small, but my cats are cuddly. They are stretching some with use so they should fit in them better in a while. Also the ladders were in the way for them to use the different level so we removed the two on the upper level, you do not need them. Overall very happy with the purchase.

The Go Pet Club Kitty Condo FC-01 is amazing to behold. If your ceiling is over 8'11" the top will not reach and it will be unstable and a bigger cat my tip it. The baskets are smaller than they look and perfect for a kitten, but a larger cat my have trouble squeezing through to climb up. If you have a graded ceiling like I do, you can just duct tape the thing and it will be 100% fine.
That being said, my kitty absolutely LOVES it. She climbs all through it with great ease and sleeps in the baskets and little coves. She also loves chewing it and clawing her way up. Yes, a cat can scale the thing without using the ladders or platforms. All in all, it made be feel way way better about having an indoor cat, knowing she has something that's her own to climb on and play in. Now, when she claws the furniture, I grab her and (lightly) place her on the jungle gym and she learned pretty quick that it's a place she can be herself.
Get it if you have a kitty, it's a great value and will give your cat a place to call her own. Since it's pretty much vertical, it takes up very little floor space and it's very fun to observe the cat playing on it.
PROS: Cat loves it! Small floorspace, fun to watch cat play on.
CONS: Unstable if your ceiling is over 9 feet and you can't anchor it, full size cat may have trouble climbing on it and fitting in the baskets.

This has been an amazing purchase. I have five adopted cats all under the age of 3 and all over 10 pounds. They are up and down this tree constantly at full speed. I really didn't think that the basket loungers would be something they would use but there is always at least one cat sleeping in one of them. The stairs must be for kitten use. My cats jump from level to level and never use the stairs, so I took them out.
The only reason I could not rate this 5 stars is because the top doesn't even close to reach my 106" ceiling. To solve that problem I opted to not make one of the ladders and used one of the sisal rungs to achieve the correct height. The tower still wobbles a bit, however my two very happy kitties do not mind. My dog is very jealous that they are now out of her reach and can see out of the window that she can't. When attaching the tent to the base with the Velcro, make sure start at the back seam and do it before you tighten the top pieces. My one cat is a little too big for the baskets but she doesn't care if she hangs over a bit and they are very strong and stable. Assembly was very easy and if you do plan on putting the ladders on, (not needed for adult cats) then the order of the huts are important.
I bought this when I had six kittens and two adult cats. They absolutely LOVE it, especially when they are a little more confident. I have two cats now but there is always one sleeping on it and they enjoy playing with eachother on it. Since one of them is a kitten I have the stairs on, when he gets older I will remove those as they will be in the way. I also used to L shaped brackets (the kind you can put shelves on) to attach it to the wall from the bottom of a ledge and of a cubby hole. It makes it really solid and there is no wobble in it now. I am not worried my kitty might get hurt or scared from it falling.
I have had no issue from material coming apart. Once in a while I will redo the fitting of the cubby holes. The nests have stretched out and somehow my 1.5 year old kitty fits in it perfectly, even though he weighs a good ten pounds. They love it and I would buy another any day.
