My young Tabby loves it for climbing, napping, and clawing the scratching sisal rope. Nice product and worth it to distract her from the furniture!

This thing has lasted 3 moves (one cross-country) & over 4 years. 100% worth it, my babies love it. The photo is from recently (so after years of use)

The cat tree is purrfect for the adventurous cat who likes to jump, lounge, or play. This one's a winner as it will keep your cat entertained for hours. The scratch post is ideal because it's one that cats really like. I highly recommend this product.
If you are a multi-cat household or have a kitty who’s on the loveably chonky side, this large cat tree is built to hold up to plenty of climbing, jumping and scratching. Chewy pet parents love that it's easy to assemble and also durable for big cats.
tower or terror
By orangecatcarl on Sep 24, 2023
My cats love this so so much! I just recently got my second cat and she adores it. I will say her favorite part is going to the top and jumping onto me, my boyfriend, or my first cat.
Easy to Build and Sturdy
By SassyKenny on Sep 24, 2023
Was a bit overwhelmed buying a cat tree with all the different styles and heights. Thought it'd be the easiest to get what I'd describe as the most unobtrusive looking cat tree (as opposed to all the colorful ones they sell at all big box retailers and stores). It was super easy to build with no tools required besides a provided allen wrench. It probably took me 15-20 minutes total before I was done and my curious little kitten began exploring. Overall it's pretty sturdy and a great height and size for my small studio apartment.
Great cat tree
By Bee on Sep 20, 2023
A friend of mine recommended this, they've had there tree for over 3 years and said it's still in great shape. It was easy to put together and is very sturdy! Our cat weighs about 15 lbs and he enjoys climbing and sitting in this tree.
For indoor cats who love having the highest perch in the house, this 6-foot-tall cat tree gives them multiple levels to survey their kitty kingdom. And with a cat tree that tall, there are plenty of cat toys, sisal scratching posts and perches to choose from.
By Darlene on Sep 22, 2023
Sturdy for a 72” tree with three cats jumping, playing and hiding. Tallest perch is a favorite spot. Easy assembly and cheetah print brings a touch of wild into the room. Would buy another.
sturdy and soft
By drexinator on Sep 18, 2023
I bought this exact tower for my cat (14lbs now) back in 2018. It was brown and lasted me a good 6 years before it was starting to really rip and lean and become unstable. I just got my cat a brand new one (pictured) and I have to say, this tower has improved. It’s much softer and more study than the old one. I can tell they changed up how they built it. I love the color and my cat demonstrated her muscle memory. As soon as I finished, she scaled this thing (which is taller than me mind you) in seconds. She loves it. Maybe the labeling of screws could be improved though. Totally worth the price though and it does not take long to assemble....

It’s a rare occasion for 4 out of our 5 cats to ever be in one spot at the same time! They all love this!
Treat your cat to this deluxe cat tree for an extra comfy spot for them to snuggle up. They’ll have not one but two cat caves to cozy up in. And for multiple cat households, two cat tree condos means they won’t have to share (unless they want to).
Cats love the levels
By LilNurys on Sep 18, 2023
This is a great sturdy cat tree. It's a great height for a lower ceiling location. The cats are loving it.
By Raichaelj on Sep 4, 2023
I bought this as part of a bundle (also got the 30" Frisco tree too) and put it together in about a half hour. I did note that when assembling, make sure that the " bottom" of the post is the end with the sticker. Because it won't screw all the way in if it's upside down.
I have a 22 lb tabby who has no problem laying on the pedestals either. Great buy!
By PrimeFitness on Aug 31, 2023
This is the safest large cat tree that I have found. It is built so that cats can climb to the top and get down safely. Others I have tried how much more dangerous when cats try to climb down. This was simple to install, and is quite sturdy and durable.
Coming in under $50, this budget-friendly cat tree still packs a lot of punch with multiple levels, scratching posts and other features. Plus, it’s tall enough to provide the perfect cat perch for your kitty to peer out the window (most windows start at around 3 feet).
loved it! great quality!
By TillieToT on Sep 22, 2023
We bought the smaller one for our store. These are such great quality! Love you can wash the cover. Our Tillie loved it!
Second cat condo
By TwoCatNana on Sep 17, 2023
I bought one for my kitten 3 years ago. She outgrew the top bed but she doesn’t care. She curls up tight or hangs over the lip. We just adopted a 2-year old and bought an identical condo. We call them “twin beds”, both cats settle in for their naps. Sturdy, easy to wash, scratching posts have held up well. No complaints.
Small but sturdy
By Allie on Sep 16, 2023
I originally purchased this tree to give my cat a place to hang out in the hallway outside our bedroom but after assembling it I noticed it was the perfect height to give her an easier way to get onto the higher platforms of her giant mount hood cat tree by kitty mansions. She's 12 years old now and she has been having trouble getting around so this was the perfect solution to help her get up onto her beloved cat tree that isn't exactly the perfect design for senior cats. I love that the bed is just a cover because removing it was all that was needed for her to learn to use it. The posts are much thicker than I expected - they are thicker...
This sturdy cat tree is made with solid wood covered in a plush carpet like the kind you’d find in your home. The thick pile carpet will give your cat an extra cush spot to catch some zzz’s.
This is my cat's best friend
By TJ on Sep 5, 2023
I've had this for almost three years and I highly recommend it! I've dealt in cat rescue for 15 years, and I can say the stability lasts longer than most cat trees I've seen on the market (only one I've seen hold up this well in covering appearance and in stability is a DIY one my dad made. Solid wood cat furniture really is the most reliable!) It has quality carpet that never lost its new-carpet feel and is super vacuumable if you need to do that! The rope has also held up really well and it's not the too-scratchy feel that some rope cat products have.
It was among the first things I got for my cat when I first got him and he was...
Sturdy and cat enjoys it
By Petperson on Aug 1, 2023
Nice sturdy tower for my senior cat that was very easy to assemble.
Love the option she has of carpet or sisal on the posts (she actually does not like sisal much, so I bought this one so she can used the carpet to scratch) the carpet may not be the most durable but I am happy because it's her favorite so she will choose this instead of inappropriate things to scratch on. She is 7lbs and the perches are a good fit for her, and she likes to go to the top and look out the window. The beige is a little darker then the pictures and I am happy as it blends in well in the living room.
By Kaychie on Jul 7, 2023
It’s cute / tall and doesn’t take up much room. No issue with it tipping over and sometimes my cats can be brute. My mother has personally ordered 3 of these for her home! We love them and so do the fur-babies
For a fun twist on the traditional cat tree, this cat tower comes covered in faux vines. Nature-loving felines will love the feel of being in their very own indoor jungle. And you’ll love that this cat tree adds a unique touch to your home decor.
By Audrey on Aug 5, 2023
We had a cat tree from Chewy which my cat loved...to death. So when it was time to replace it, we did decide to down size and this the perfect size! She is happy and I have more room.
Not Perfect but..
By Dani on Oct 1, 2021
My cats LOVE sunbathing on the top and attacking the scratching posts. The leaves didn’t last very long so it looks pretty bare now. The hanging tunnel also has gone loose (cats didn’t even use it.
Despite the small annoyances, it was easy to assemble and what really matters is that the cats like it.
My cats love this tower
By Vxmpire on May 4, 2021
It was an instant hit with my two boys, the large flat spaces allow them both to enjoy this tower without fighting. The cats specifically seem to like the fact there aren't sidewalls on the large platforms.
If you have a cat who loves to sink their claws into things, this high-quality cat tree and condo offers them the perfect place to sharpen their pretty paws. It has a total of 15 cat scratching posts—giving them plenty of sisal rope scratchers to claw. Your sofa will thank you.
Easy to assemble and sturdy!
By Hannah on Sep 9, 2023
Our beefy orange cat had worn out our old cat tree and we settled on this one because it had the biggest beds. Our orange cat who likes cat trees loves this one and fits on everything. It's sturdy and is holding up under his jumping around, and we are about two weeks in to having this tree. Also, the easiest one we have ever put together. All the pieces are well labeled and the instructions were easy to follow.
"Biscuit" Loves This!
By DonnaD on Aug 26, 2023
My cat really enjoys all of the features of this tree. I will say that it is very tall, and I consider it to be a piece of furniture in my den. Biscuit likes to be up high to watch what's going on. I would highly recommend!
Frisco 68" Faux fur cat tree & condo
By Sandy on Aug 23, 2023
This tree is awesome !! My 4 cats love it. My 15 pounder loves the condo and has plenty of room in it. Even my 12 yr old cat loves it
For a modern cat tree that complements your home decor, you can’t beat this sleek piece of cat furniture. It doesn’t skimp on the kitty amenities either: Your furry bestie will have a private cubby, plush cat beds, scratching surfaces and hanging toys for playtime.
By TIFF on Sep 8, 2023
My 3-year-old cat completely shred the previous cat tree I bought him in under a year! Manufacturers please stop using crappy carpet material. This one is awesome and I agree that washable pads are wonderful and the whole thing is easy just to wipe down instead of vacuuming. Because my cat claws so much he's not going to run out of Cisco posts on this one which is also the other reason I bought it and because the Cisco goes top to bottom instead of just in the middle on some cat trees which I don't understand. Thank you Chewy! 💜
Our kittens love it!
By Lin on Aug 23, 2023
Our two kittens use the scratching posts often and like to snuggle in the box and up top. Happy with this purchase!
Beautiful and well-made!
By Jen on Aug 18, 2023
My cat is about 12 pounds and he fits comfortably on top. I love the modern design of this tree. It is well-made and sturdy.
If you’re short on space or have senior cats who aren’t as keen on climbing, this compact cat tree is the perfect small-scale solution. It’s only a little over 2-feet tall and has a small footprint, but still offers a variety of features, including two platforms and scratching posts, a cubby and dangling toy.
Good cat tree
By Tina on Aug 20, 2023
My cat doesn’t spend too much time on this cat tree when compared to the others but it’s very sturdy and well made, the fabric is soft, and I love the scratching posts!
She’s indifferent to everything but loves this!
By Nic on Apr 27, 2023
My little lady is so picky about her towers and scratch posts so I was nervous purchasing this tower at first, but I’m so happy I did! She hopped right on it and has loved it ever since! The only issue we have is when she launches herself off the top shelf because it’ll enable. Other than that it’s great!
My cats love this
By C2S2 on Mar 16, 2023
I have this in my living room and most times one or the other of my cats is sitting on the top perch. This is sturdier than one I had before which needed to be replaced because the scratching poles were totally shredded. Now, they have fresh scratching posts and a nice sturdy perch to sit.
Crave something unique? The farm animal design of this top-selling llama cat tree makes for a quirky statement piece but is also very functional: the neck doubles as a scratching post and the body provides a private cat condo and plenty of space for lounging.
Very Happy Kitty
By Rae on Sep 9, 2023
My Elsa cat absolutely loves her tree, and she’s extra adorable in it. She makes nonstop biscuits on the soft llama fur. I’ll probably order the rest of the llama set for her also!
Don't Pass This Up!
By Brenda on Aug 10, 2023
This is so super cute and so well-built. We got it as a surprise for our two new rescue grand-kitties & it was a total hit. The babies arrived home and napped in it and are enjoying it thoroughly.
My cats love it!
By Mondialito on Aug 6, 2023
My cats received this cat condo as a gift from my friend. It's both better looking and cuter than many other cat condos of similar size. It's very easy to assemble. It matches my living room furniture exceptionally well, and both of my cats love sleeping in it. I'm planning to order the Llama scratching post to match it!
A cat tree may seem like a larger investment, but your furry friend will get so much out of it. The best cat trees will provide hours of entertainment—and give them their new favorite spot for snoozing away the afternoon.
