I got my tree on the pre-order. My cats, I have 4, were sceptical at first, like they are about everything. They love it I have 2 trees 1 old and this one. It is split 50 50 2 cats like the new one and 2 cats like the other. I want to add to my tree someday, maybe you can let me know when this is possible.
I got one of each, the standard and starter. We got the standard first and set it up right away, with kitty help, of course. They checked it out immediately and use it all the time. We are a cattery and love that we can just change the same tree to grow with the kittens and not have to store multiple trees or get new ones when they wear out the scratching posts. Would love to see an add on with an enclosed sleeping area as kittens love to pile on top of each other in a safe, dark place and they often want it to be higher off the ground as they get older.
Love the look and quality of this cat tree. We bought it for our 3 cats, (2 are large 15 lb-ers and 1 is about 8 lbs). 2 of them love to sleep on it, but the tunnel is pretty small, even for our smallest cat. Wish it had padding for all the platforms but we put a blanket on and it makes it more inviting.
Assembly was a bit confusing at first but eventually figured it out!
I really like this cat tree and, so far, my cats do, too. I am looking forward to being able to order replacement parts because I would like another cushion or two to add to the other shelves. I would also like to replace the wooden rods with the sisal posts to make it a little sturdier. My cats weigh between 8 and 17 lbs so sturdier is always better. I also know that at some point in the future I will need new sisal posts because my cats already enjoy using them to sharpen their claws.
