Sturdy, well made, and comfortable for the kitties! I got this together in about 45 mins and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. They are all in picture format.

In 2 weeks, I will have had this cat tree for a year. Aside from a few dusty spots and some flattening of the fleece, it looks like it did the day I assembled it, and it's still rock-solid. My 18-month-old, feral-born house cat still indulges in Crazy Tree Time at least once every day (racing at full speed up and down the columns, leaping from level to level and literally swinging from the upper perches), and she takes most of her naps on those same upper perches. Meanwhile, my 13- and 15-year-old grand-cats usually can be found curled up in the cat bed I put on the lower platform behind the ramp.
The reason I had to deduct half a star is the use of particle board in the construction. It's just not as solid as plywood. Shortly after I got it, I tried to move it by myself (bad idea) and had to tip it to get through a doorway. I wasn't prepared for the weight and ended up trying to hold it up by grabbing the top column. The bolt and washer pulled right through the roof of the upper condo leaving a large hole and allowing the rest of the tree to fall. I will say that it’s sturdy enough that nothing else was damaged by the fall and it was fairly easy to repair by getting a longer bolt and a larger washer, and adding a piece of 3/8” plywood the inside of the condo roof to reinforce it. The particle board also seems to compress over time making it necessary to keep tightening the columns periodically.
That being said, I’ve looked at hundreds of cat trees, both before getting this one and since and, unless the size would be an issue, I truly believe this is the most complete and cat-friendly design available. In fact, I like it so much that I just ordered a second one.
