Rated 5 out of 5 by collette Awesome tree
This tree is worth every penny.The base is massive so you won't have to worry about it tipping over.I ordered 2 and I think I love it more than my cats.Ha Ha.The second and third floors are as large as the base so the cats have so much room to lounge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RJAllen Outstanding Product, Great Value
We noticed the tree was on sale. Since we have been looking at a larger tree for our two cats for some time, we purchased the Armarkat Classic Cat Tree. My only quibble about this product is the fact it is drop shipped directly from the manufacturer. I am sure this ends up saving the buyer the cost of additional shipping and do not have a problem with this but I wish F&S would notify the buyer at time of purchase. Seems like such items are never shipped as quickly as inventoried stock and questions arise when you are used to F&S's same day shipping.
Tree comes in two boxes and arrived in good shape.; the Armarkat Classic Cat Tree is LARGE. When fully assembled, it measures out well over six feet tall and is slightly wider than 3 feet at its widest point. The tree is well designed, instructions easy to follow and most importantly, it is easy to disassemble. You can quickly and easily unscrew a couple of the post to reduce the width and height for easy transport.
Construction, with the exception of the bungee cord attached cat toys, is sound and the tree is very stable. The platforms and houses are large enough even for big cats. To clear up some confusion found in the question & answers section of the website listing, my example at least, has houses with TWO doorways each.. To my cats, this is important as it gives them an escape route during there never ending play cat wars!
I am sure there are plusher and fancier tree products out there but the Armarkat Classic Cat Tree is a great product and I believe will last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bebekka Good price, good tree
My cats love it and I've put it in the center of my living room which you're supposed to put it in a prominent place so cats use it. Was a little difficult to follow the scehmatic with no written instructions so we had to take it apart from the bottom level and start over. Good value and sturdy, and I like that it's not carpet that will fray eventually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Baka Excellent kitty tree...
We put the tree together this past weekend and it was simple. Easy instructions to follow and the materials included were well made. I noticed some mentioned rusty screws or worn parts but we did not see this. The quality is excellent. The fleece is soft and the scratch poles made of cord are wound tight and sturdy. Speaking of sturdy, I was worried about that being that our cats pushed 10 pounds and are rambunctious. It is deep and wide enough not to feel as if it will topple. They play hard on it and I don't feel as if I need to stabilize it in any way. Our cats, ages 2-4, were on it as soon as they re-emerged from the mayhem of construction. They love being up high and took right to sleeping on the top perches. I've noticed that they wouldn't eat the first few days because they wanted to get back to the tree. It reminded me of children and their toys during those first days after Christmas. They have not bothered with the rope that hangs down. It appears to be too heavy and cumbersome. To the manufacturers I'd suggest something much lighter. A hint to those whose cats are timid about going onto it; buy some fresh catnip and spread it all about the levels and houses. Our cats jumped from level to level rolling around like they'd lost all control. It's a great purchase for those looking to treat their cats to a good time. It's enjoyable watching them bounce around and climb. You won't be disappointed.
