I had been looking for a larger cat tree for weeks and I didn't want a beige or brown one... or nothing too fancy. Neat and simple is what I was looking for. I had had a floor to ceiling model previously (bought at a local discount store) that had worked well, but they changed the quality and color options in the current ones available and I was looking for a sturdy and simple design. I immediately liked the design (simple) and color options for this cat tree. Ordering was simple and it was shipped quickly. Although I had read about color variations in the description, the item I received was a very light gray (think silver or platinum) compared to the dark gray in the picture. This is not a simple color variation but a different color in my opinion. I would be happier with the darker gray but at least it's gray- not beige or brown. I can work with this shade. I can't imagine that someone ordering a blue, red, or green would be happy with the difference though as lighter shades of those colors would be so different for a decor. All in all, this is a well built cat tree, arrived fully assembled, and looked like the picture (except for the exact color). I've already got my cat to explore it so I'm sure it'll serve its purpose. Works great in a corner and the carpet is a decent quality pile. It should hold up for several years depending on use. If you searched the pet stores for cat trees, you know big ones are expensive and the major colors available are beige and brown. Sure, there are more with sisal and toys and houses built in, but a basic cat tree is for scratching, climbing and overseeing- and this one works fine.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The image on the site shows a dark gray color. The item I received was very LIGHT gray.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was accurate and my item looks just like the picture, except for the difference in color.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems sturdy with good carpet seams and plush carpeting.
Product came fully assembled. What a plus! It is a full 6ft. tall. Platforms are large enough to easily accommodate my huge 14 pound fluff ball. Base is very sturdy. We attached to wall due to height of the condo and the large size of our cat, but probably wasn't necessary. Wonderful to give multiple cats places to sleep without competition. Wonderful replacement for the older rickety condos of the past.
I have a four-year-old munchkin cat, less than ten pounds, and she LOVES this. This is the perfect tree for an active climbing cat. I picked this one in particular because it has a really tall pole with decent materials at a price I can afford. My cat is incredibly playful and now she can amuse herself by looking out the window and by climbing whenever she wants; she's so much happier! I also put toys on it and she knocks them over and grabs the ones from other levels etc. I suppose cats could also sleep on it but mine always goes back to her box instead haha
So while It's not perfect, it's a great value. I put twenty pounds in hand weights underneath to help stabilize it because it was a bit wobbly and she was nervous about that. Once I did, she zoomed up it. It is also a bit tricky getting from one level to the next but my kitty is pretty clever so shes flipping all over using her claws to climb and haul herself from one to another after a week or two. I saw a tower for *** more for flat levels but this one ended up being good and she enjoys the challenge. UPS also lost my package for a few days and it took weeks to ship here so that stunk. It's also not the thickest carpeting but I haven't seen any bare spots or anything and I've already had this for a month.
This is a very sturdy cat tree. It came completely assembled and did take two people to get up some stairs to destination. The color gray is a medium gray; like a battleship gray color. I highly recommend this to anyone who has, like us, gone through poorly constructed cat trees. Our two cats sit in it every morning and evening. I'm so glad we were able to find something this well made.
The cat tree arrived on time. It comes already assembled and the cats were all over it right after I removed it from the box. It arrived before the delivery date. The color matches the photo. I am very pleased with the cat tree. The cats love it. They also use it as a scratching post saving my furniture. I would highly recommend this cat tree. It is very sturdy and even my 16 pound cats can't knock it over. The height and width make it perfect for any room.
We were getting a new kitten and I thought it was about time to replace our old, beat-up cat trees with some nice new ones. After much shopping and price comparisons, I found the Overstock website and decided to take a chance ordering cat trees online. I ordered two new cat trees. The first was a large cat condo - called "6-foot Cat Playstation with Kitty Cruiser Bundle" on Overstock. That one turned out to be an excellent, high-quality product. See my review on that item's page for details. I was so pleased with that product that I decided to order a second, smaller cat tree. And selected this one - the "Premiere Solid Wood 6-foot Skyscraper Cat Tree".
Well, I was VERY DISAPPOINTED when this one arrived. ALL the different shelves or levels (or whatever you call them) were VERY LOOSE. They were literally hanging on loose screws! I couldn't believe it and even wondered if this cat tree was "some assembly required". But there was no instruction manual included to tell you anything. I got out my tool box and wasted my evening attempting to tighten the screws, to secure the levels. Maybe I'm just getting old but there's a layer of hard plastic under the carpet, and the wood itself was so dense that after much effort, I got nowhere. Then I started noticing other problems. When standing upright, the whole structure of this cat tree is wobbly! I just nudged it, and it would shake. You could tell even the screws holding it to the base were loose. I also noticed the carpeting on the underside of the shelves, was not attached well, you could see bare plywood showing and even exposed staples. That was an unpleasant cosmetic issue, but I was way more concerned about how unsteady the whole thing was. I would not feel safe letting my cats play on this item. The more I considered the safety issues, it actually made me a little angry.
Thank goodness I saved the box because I ended up returning this item. The Overstock website's return process was very easy.
I lost another evening struggling the thing back into its box and getting it all taped up secure for re-shipping. Also had to pay UPS to pick up the item at my house, because my car is not big enough to transport it. But I am at least happy to report that Overstock refunded my money within 24 hours after the item was shipped back to them.
My cats love it! When it got here most of the u shaped step/beds were loose and just put on with staples.. not good. My husband put screws in to keep them in place. The carpet is put on well and finished well. We put a piece of plywood under it (screwed to the bottom) and used an L bracket to fasten it to the wall.. it was very unstable before we did that. We have big cats and 2 of them can fit in the top bed.. very nice. They climb the poles straight to the top, then king of the mountain ensues.. all in all they are very happy with it.
After reading the positive reviews for this cat tree I decided to order after thinking about it for weeks. While I do like the grey color, size and shape of this tree it is not the quality I would have expected. So many cat tres are of poor quality and this is another one of those. Unfortunate for me, I did not read it was not-returnable. Flaws are: the edges of the carpet are not nicely finished - if details bother you this will drive you nuts. The highest platform has a triangle edge just folder underneath. They are just folded over the bottom and being 6ft you can see it from all angles. Every edge of the perches has funny edges too and the corners of the carpets already show the base of the carpet. It is not as sturdy as I would like either, just rocking with my hand makes it wobble a lot. I wish I had not purchased :(
I have also been looking at the "PurrFect Post" on another website - this claims to be well made. I might try this one too.
How do the cats climb down when all the seats are in a straight line? Anybody have any problems with a cat jumping off a seat that is six feet high?1androcles on Feb 25, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us 1androcles. The reviews indicate that the reader's cats did not have any difficulty with maneuvering on the tree. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 12, 2014
My munchkin can't jump from the top. There's a cut out in the top level so they can go down a level. From there my cat jumps onto a wicker hamper.cheatham101 on Mar 15, 2014
We have another old scratching post beside this one that they use to get up and down if they choose.. but they can get down by going down into the first U and then it isn't too much of a jump.sheilav236 on May 13, 2014
Are the perches big enough for a 17lb cat to rest and climb? And what are the perches made of?alizarincrimson on Aug 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello, alizarincrimson. Hope your day is going well. My cat weighs about that much---very solidly built. Our cat condo has bigger perches and my "beef cake" :) is able to rest only on the broader perches. In my opinion, these perches would be too small for your cat. The perches of this condo are made of wood, sonic tubes, peeler cores and plush household grade carpet. Thank you for shopping with us and please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

I have a 14 pounder and she has tons of room and the item is super stable under her weight.figgette on Sep 25, 2013
My 15 pounder has no problem on the perches and it seems very stable!michaden on Sep 25, 2013
Most definately! I have 2 cats that go on top perch together.tracker98 on Sep 26, 2013
Yes they are big enough.. but I would do what my husband did as soon as we got it. He put screws into the U and fastened it to the pole.. they are just put on with staples and very unstable otherwise. That did fix the problem though.sheilav236 on May 13, 2014
Are the cats able to climb to the top only by utilizing the cat tree or do they need other pieces of furniture to help them?2cats8paws on Jul 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
My kitty is a bit large and hasn't made it to the top of my Skyscraper tree yet, but I see no reason for extra pieces. An average cat should be able to climb this without problem. A kitten would have it scaled in minutes of set-up!michaden on Jul 22, 2013
My cats climb straight up the corner posts. If they are in a more mellow mood they can go perch to perch.figgette on Sep 25, 2013
Big and little cats can climb to top,if they so desire.tracker98 on Sep 26, 2013
My cat saw it and immediately climbed to the top. As long as they have their claws they should be able to get to the top.cheatham101 on Mar 15, 2014
I did put an old scratching post beside this one but to my amazement they climbed the posts clear to the top and had a blast doing it (and I have older cats that are a bit pudgy.. but not for long at this rate:)) .sheilav236 on May 13, 2014
Is this cat tree preassembled? Is it shipped/delivered 'finished' as seen in picture?ms2014 on Jul 9, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello ms2014, only some light assembly will be needed. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 17, 2013
My Skyscraper tree arrived fully assembled.michaden on Jul 22, 2013
It came to our house fully assembled. The UPS man wasn't too happy but I was!! :-)figgette on Sep 25, 2013
Mine came fully assembled!michaden on Sep 25, 2013
Yes comes fully assembled and ready to use.tracker98 on Sep 26, 2013
Yes, it comes complete.. but we had to put screw into the U's to make them more stable.. they are just put on with staples.. not good! That being said it is quality and the cats love it other than that.. easy fix.. We also put a piece of plywood under the base (screwed on) and used L brackets to fasten it to the wall.. pretty unstable otherwise.sheilav236 on May 13, 2014
