Everything I expected and more. I have 5 rescue cats, and they love it. Two of my cats are huge 7 yr old Main Coons, and they can jump and play all over this thing, with very little movement. There are usually 3 on the tower at any given time, and it really is perfect for them. And no carpet junk all over the house! I priced the lotus tower everywhere, and overstock is by far the lowest price. Major pet supply stores are over $500. Easy to assemble, just don't tighten the screws too tight. Use the tower to brush/groom your pet, and they will take to it asap.

So glad we splurged and ordered the lotus tower. It looks a lot nicer in our house than some of the other options and our cats love it. In fact we put it in the corner in our dining room and it actually looks good there! Wouldn't be the case with a typical carpet covered tower. It seems fairly sturdy. Our two cats are both large - 15-16 lbs each - and they have no trouble getting comfy on this tower. One likes to lay on the top and the other on the bottom. I don't know that they would lounge on the smaller middle pieces as much as they are more narrow but it is nice that there is some carpet on those levels that they can scrach on. I don't know how long assemly took - my husband assembled it. He didn't complain about it though so it must not have been too bad.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. We've had it for a couple of week and so far so good, except that the wooden screw covers fall off easily but that is a very minor concern.
This is a really lovely cat tree. Definitely furniture quality.
It is well made and very sturdy and it is wonderful that you can get replacement carpet inserts when you need them. It will be much easier to take care of than cleaning the cat fur from the carpeted towers and your guests might not even realize that it is cat furnture since it looks more like sculpture.
The diagrams in the assembly instructions are very small and difficult to read. You may need a magnifying glass if you already use reading glasses.
Be certain that all of the pieces for the bottom box are placed correctly before you tighten the locking nuts. Check the diagram twice and make sure the one side with the two holes for the support arm is on the correct side of the platform before the locking nuts are tightened. If you build the box incorrectly and only realize it after you have tightened the locking nuts and you need to open them and move one of the walls of the box it may be difficult to open the locking nuts again. They are not supposed to lock so that you cannot open them, but I had a problem with that.
Refined Feline has an excellent customer service department if you need help.
It is expensive, but for me it was worth it for such a nice piece for the cats.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The tower actually has a support arm that is not shown in the image. Other than that it looks like the image.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. IIt is beautifully made.
Our kitties love their new cat tree! They are indoor cats so they can perch up at the top, look out at the birds, and take naps in the sun on the ledges. The only feature that could be improved upon is the Velcro attachment of the carpet to the ledges, because the carpet doesn't lay down flat and looks a bit bumpy. I understand why Velcro was used...so the carpet could be easily removed and replaced. Perhaps there is a way to better accomplish this, however, if it bothers me in the future, I could have the carpet glued or wrapped around the ledges. Other than this, it's a beautiful piece of quality furniture anyone would be happy to have in their living room.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Looked just like it,!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. excellent quality, nice thick wood. I had requested replacement screws because 2 of the assembly screws were damaged. I received the screws right away.
Although this is on the pricey side for a piece of cat furniture, it is well worth it! It fits in very well with modern decor. Now all four of my cats can be on one condo and not fight....Although, they do sometimes contend for the very top level. I also like that you can easily replace the pads or get "fluffier" pads. This is also fairly easy to clean because the fur does not get trapped in the normal carpet that is on other condos.
My cats love this thing. I can have 2 large cats (17 and 15 pounds) together on the top shelf at times. they do not use the open box at the bottom. It took several weeks for some of them to get used to the mild swaying but now that they are they love it (I have had this around 10 or so years, saw a newer one recently and it would appear that while they have addressed some issues they have not addressed them all, will only mention the ones they appear not to have addressed).
1) quality control leaves something to be desired in terms of pieces fitting well. I (and the other person whose newer one I saw had the same issues I had) had to return one to get one where all the parts fit (What I actually did was combine two and return one that had all the misfits, cracked pieces).
2) the wood is on the soft side so be careful not to over tighten screws. I had to fill a couple of holes with plastic wood and then rescrew.
3) The screw hole cover plugs tend to fall off. Don't glue them in as occasionally you will need to tighten the screws
4) My cats don't limit their scratching to the sisal. They have also put scratch marks all over the front side of the wood. You can make them less noticeable with those stain touch up pens.
5) It took close to 7 or 8 years to need a replacement for the vertical sisal. The carpet on the shelves is matted from claw action, but isn't coming off.
6) They do not use the box with the hole on the bottom nor do they hang out on the padded lid to that. The preferred spot is on top, although if that is taken they will use another shelf. There is usually at least on cat on the thing at any given time of the day (I have 4 cats).
7) I have mine by a window and they love looking out from the high vantage point.
8) When you get the box it is HEAVY so be prepared. I put it together myself in about an hour or so and I am not an experienced assembler, however the directions are, shall we say, "interesting" and it is worth looking at photos of the finished product. I did put one piece on backwards initially. that is the other reason not to over tighten screws - you may be reassembling.
I am pleased that it has lasted so long (at least 10 years, might be as many as 12) and based on the shape it is currently in I suspect it will outlive these cats. It is expensive and for that price you'd think they'd use wood that is a little harder, they'd make sure the holes line up better and catch cracked or warped wood, etc. but once you get beyond that it is a great cat tree that the cats love.
I was a little hesitant to order this cat tower due to the price but decide to go for it after reading all the positive reviews. I have to say overall I am very pleased. The tower is well made and in my opinion much more attractive than the traditional carpet covered cat furniture. I am not someone who tries to hide the fact that I have pets but it is nice to have cat furniture that can look nice with your other furniture. And more importantly- the cat likes it. It was clearly designed with cats idiosyncrasies in mind. She can easily go from shelf to shelf and likes to perch on all of them. I felt like the unit was easy to put together if you have had some experience with other put together pieces. I would have given it five stars but the hardware package was missing altogether and I had to call Overstock to get one sent. It wasn't a big deal they had it out to me in less than a week just was a bummer because I was ready to go! Also, a couple of the pieces were labeled wrong but it was pretty easy to tell by the diagram and other than the hardware I had all the pieces. As noted by a couple of the other reviewers the color is very dark(almost black) and the scratch pad is a little higher than seems practical. Neither of those issues was a problem for me.
This Cat Tower is awesome! It is made of the highest quality from solid wood. It looks more like a piece of furniture and we are proud to have it as part of our living room. It came well packaged, timely shipping and with easy to follow assembly instructions. The Cat Tower even came with its own screw driver. All parts fit together perfectly with no gaps. The scratch pad and carpeting are also high quality. Now for the best partů the cats LOVE it! We just got a new kitten and even he is able to climb all the way to the top. If they are not playing on Cat Tower they are sleeping on it. The two cats have to split the time and share the top since it is a coveted spot! I am so glad we got this and know it will last for many years to come. Without a question I would order other items from Refined Feline. It's a most excellent product and we are very pleased! I hope this review helps others. The product is well worth the money.
This is a large piece of furniture but still fine in my studio apartment. Cosmo (my cat) loves climbing on it and it's great exercise. It's a little more than 5-ft tall so he's really getting some jumps in there. It took me about 2 hours to put together by myself and I had no problems/issues (except getting the package into my apartment since it's VERY heavy!) Though, can't complain about how heavy it is since it's very sturdy. My cat is almost 15lbs and the top wobbles a tiny bit when he jumps to the top but the tower itself is not moving anywhere. The Refined Feline has great customer service too. A few of the screw covers were missing from my tower (totally cosmetic pieces) and they mailed me a few replacements within a week. It is a beautiful, unique piece of furniture, unlike most of the carpeted (yuck!) cat towers I've seen. It is expensive but it's high quality - all the carpeted pieces can also be replaced when your cat wears them out (available on their website)
Hi bmandi13, unfortunately we do not weight test our items and are unable to divulge this type of information. We apologize for the inconvenience. overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 5, 2014
My cat is almost 15lbs and he can sit and jump up easily (though the top wobbles a little when he gets to that level) - their manual says that the shelves can hold 50lbs each so your cats should be fine :)applesoda31 on Jun 6, 2014
This item is solid heavy wood. It is very durable and sturdy. I don't think you'd be disappointed.335788 on Jun 29, 2014
Can you give me a better description of the Espresso color? I've read different descriptions... one said it is a dark dark brown almost black, another said it is a light brown with red highlights. ibigoldlady on Jan 25, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I would call it a dark expresso brown. It is the handsomest kitty tower I have ever seen. My cats love it.crldouglass on Feb 2, 2014
In bright light there is a slight red stain that appears here and there. Otherwise, the stain is a dark Espresso brown. The architectural appearance of this cat furniture has netted several compliments. My cats are in love with this tree.jonigirl65 on Feb 26, 2014
Definitely dark brown, almost black.meow888 on Mar 12, 2014
I purchased it and it's dark brown to almost black.macomb48044 on Mar 12, 2014
Yes you could put a litter box in the bottom cubby.
Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 25, 2013
Yes, but I don't know why you would want to. Eventually it would ruin this beautiful piece of furniture.bethchilds on Dec 29, 2013
The two towers that are side by side in picture are different. One on the right has a dark brown cushion and the one on the left if a creme color. Also the scratchy thing is bigger on the left.
