Rated 2 out of 5 by ZoomingtonMcAlistair Cheaply made
The good: the unit is sturdy. Our cat likes to scale the side of the posts to get to the top level (rather than use the shelves) and it has never looked like it was going to fall over.
The bad: the carpet is of a very low quality. We've had this condo for a year and 4 months and it's already down to the wood in several areas (that's with just one cat). Every day, we have to pick up loose fibers from the floor. Additionally, it's not stapled down very well, we've had several staples come out. Lastly, the undersides of the shelves are not carpeted, making the whole thing look rather unattractive.
We are now looking for a higher quality condo to replace this one. Would not buy again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by romalu Wonderful, but one problem...
My cats have loved this ever since I bought it -- it's their window seat, bed, jungle-gym and scratching post all in one! I've only had one problem: the platform below the top section, which is unsupported at one end. Every time the cats go up or down from the top, they bounce off that platform and the impact puts a lot of strain on those rear joints. After only 5 months it was loose and wobbly; a couple months more and I think it would have come off completely! Fortunately I found an easy fix: a simple shelving bracket, attached to post and underside of the platform, stabilized it perfectly.

My kitties got a new tree for Christmas! So far so good. I have three large cats (12, 14 and 16 lbs.) and they fit on all layers with no problem.

by IdaMaesHomemadeCookies Another Great Cat Tree!
Last month we added a new cat to the home, so now we need more vertical space for them. I am very happy that we purchased this piece of cat furniture; good addition to our home. We have cat shelves that flank high on the walls at the sides of our picture window. We already have a tree configuration on one side that everyone loves. With this new tree, all 4 of my cats can now enjoy the new shelves on the other side of the window. Before I could get the new tree into proper position, there were already a few "inspectors" checking it out. The tree is sturdy, the craftsmanship is well, and the plush seating in the bottom tier is a big hit. The sisal rope it great for the new kitten to use for scratching since the older cats are without claws. The edge-less platforms are great for larger cats, so that they won't feel too cramped. I now think that my kitty-babies are all set with places to lounge. We are all content!
