I bought two of these outdoor shelters....even though none of the neighborhood feral cats have discovered them yet, they are extremely durable, sturdy, weatherproof (once we screwed the flaps on rather than Velcro..) once the cats discover them they will have a nice cozy shelter to use!
My cat tree was delivered ahead of schedule which is always a good thing. I took the pieces out of the box and noticed that I was missing the base. I was disappointed and put things back in thinking that without the base it would just not be stable. I called and customer service was extremely helpful. My friend came over the next day and took a look at it. She proceeded to put it together and even without the base it was stable and sturdy. I got a follow up email within a day telling me that the part was on its way. I received it a few days later and am happy to say that it is now fully assembled. Now trying to get my cat to leave the couch and my bed to try her new bed is a different story. This product is well worth the money. In the stores I've priced them in,they're much more expensive and not as nice.
First let me say I have two energetic kittens-they're all over into everything, and need something to scratch on. They enjoyed their previous tower/condo, and we were looking for something new for them.
the carpeting (if it can be called that) is a little thin on this product. I'm not anticipating it lasting very long. If you have cats, you know what I mean-they'll scratch on it and it will tatter.
the rope pillars: seem to be good, it's a smaller gauge rope
We were missing one screw-thankfully it was for one of the platforms on the top, they don't seem to care they're missing one sleeping space.
Assembly. You will need a tape measure, and i recommend a silver perm marker-the pieces aren't labeled-so you have to go through measure all the pieces and label them-lest you have a breakdown when you've taken apart the same piece three times. The pieces were not labeled out of the box, that's basically my only complaint. If you are not handy, don't own a measuring tape, go to the pet store, pay 3x the amount and also pay the $** assembly! Once we got going on assembling ours (we own a measuring tape) it went up quick.
I had looked everywhere to find a product like this - I have outside cats and wanted to provided them a place to hole up from the winter weather. Everything in the stores was flimsy or didn't have enough sheltered space. This item was less expensive, better made and had plenty of space for everyone. No assembly requred - well, it does come with a toy for the outside, but that's it. I am really impressed with how well-constructed this is for the price. Highly recommended!
