I'm not overly impressed with this item. The base is not big or heavy enough to balance the height of the item, especially once the cat is on it. My cat is of average size (8lbs) and wobbles when she is on the top shelf. The shelves themselves are barely big enough for her to sit on. I had to turn the bottom shelf inward in order to balance some of the weight of the tree. She uses the scratching posts but as for it being a place for her to climb and play, it is worthless. A lot of money and cumbersome for nothing but a scratching post. Makers of these items really need to focus on the base. It must be more sturdy!Read More
Good cat tree; is as I pictured it. It's definitely pretty wobbly; my bigger cat shies away from it as it wobbles so much. Will likely tie it to something to stabilize it.Read More
This product is so sad. Very poor quality when trying to put it together. Both of my cats are around 10 pounds each, so if either of them jump onto this cat tree, it falls right over on top of them. You could add extra screws and also fasten it to the wall to make it work better, but good grief.Read More

Easy to put together. My cat was a bit nervous because it wobbled when she jumped on it, but that was because the base was on carpet. I don't think it would do that on hardwood or vinyl flooring. She has adjusted and uses it to catapult to the top of our TV, which was her normal perch. Good product.Read More
We have two kittens who absolutely adore this! The first couple of days we had it in the middle of the room and they loved running up and jumping onto it. Now it's by a window and their favorite place to nap is on the top landing so they can see out. It's sturdy and the vertical posts make great scratching pads. The ONLY drawback is the ball. The kittens of course had a grand old time swatting that ball around. However, we put it together one night and then next morning, we woke to the worst sound of a cat sounding like it was being tortured. My husband ran into the living room and the string had stretched out enough that it had wound around the cat's back legs and the cat was hanging from it--horrible! My husband yanked the string off the post and the cat was freed but I shudder to think of what would have happened had we not been home then or if the cat had gotten the string wound around it's neck instead. Please, remove the string and ball immediately about assembling this! One more thing--the gray of the carpet is nice color and makes it much more sophisticated and contemporary than the ubiquitous beige you usually find on cat trees.Read More
The piece looks very nice but wobbles a little bit when cats climd on it.Read More
This piece is mostly what I expected, other than that it could have been a little heavier. When the cat gets up on it it is a little wobbly. Perhaps the base could have been a bit larger. If given a choice, I probably would not buy this one again. I was motivated by price to see if I could lure the cat away from the furniture.Read More
This is a very rickety piece. My large adult cats are terrified of climbing it. Even against a wall and reenforced its wobbly when climed to the top. It stands now as a huge scratching post.Read More
The scratching post is good quality and looks pretty but it needs something heavy on the bottom plank or it shakes too much. It may be Ok for cats below 8lbs but people with bigger cats will need to secure the post to the wall/window and put a heavy block on the bottom plank. My cats are around 10lbs and when they climb to the top-most post the tree shakes so much that they have stopped climbing all the way to the top. But they love laying on the second and third tier and use the scratching posts constantly. Apart from being super shaky it is not a bad purchase.Read More

It's a nice cat tree and good price.

Would you tell me the height between each platform and the dimensions of each platform, please? I have elderly, overweight cats and need to make sure they can climb this. It is nice, though, because the platforms are staggered for ease of access as opposed to being strictly vertical as many cat trees. Thank you.
Hello shyler13, The platform between each is: Dimensions: 1 platform 15.25 x 11.25 in; 2 platform 20.25 x 12.5 x 12.5 in; 3 platform 13.25 x 13.25 in. On the Trixie Altea Scratching Post. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!
What's the height of this cat tree?
The cat tree is 46" high.
