I researched a lot of cat condos before I decided on this one. The brand Armarkat, looked to be the best based on reviews from many different websites. It arrived in a box that weighed about 48 lbs. It was packaged nicely and all of the pieces were in perfect condition upon arrival. The picture instructions were easy to understand and it took me around 20 minutes to put it together. The carpet is excellent quality and very soft to the touch. I really tightened the screws well while putting it together and once up, it is VERY sturdy and solid. I have a 15 month old cat who weighs about 10 lbs. and is a smaller size cat. She loves it! She fits just perfect on the perches and in the house. If she was much bigger though, it would be a tight fit. The ball attachment only lasted one day before it was ripped off by her. But no worries I hooked another toy there and she loves it. There is a funny glue/fish smell that I could smell when I stood next to it, but it has become less noticible after I aired it outside in the sunshine. It didn't seem to phase my cat at all. Overall for the price and quality, it is a fantastic buy! I highly recommend this product.
