SmartCat Cat Shelf
I have an eleven year old cat who, while still agile, enjoys a safe place to sleep. Our two year old male likes to chase her. I bought her one of these, so she'd have a safe place to hide when he came around. She still prefers under the dresser, but it doesn't go without use.
I think she'd use it more, if I'd placed it in a more convenient place. As a small female, installation was easy. No problems there.
Before I installed it, I put both pieces on the ground, so she could get her scents on them, and learn that it was okay for her to use. She'd scratch on both parts when it was disassembled. Now that it's on the wall, though, she only scratches on the carpeted part. She uses it to hide her 'nip stash, and frequently gets up on it to roll around and nip up. I have seen her sleep on it, but it's placed above my bed, so she prefers to just jump down and sleep on the blankets.
Overall, I really like the product, and intend to install a second one so it's easier for her to access.
