Some assembly required :-)

According to the reviews, this isn't big enough for many adult cats and the ledges are only large enough for kittens.

Too good to be true :(

@stanleys: And it helps if you have cats.

@kitcatbrat: We have 3 adults between 13 and 16 pounds, and they don't have any trouble on it.

@okham: Maybe the people who reviewed it had massive cats? One person said their 18-pound cat couldn't fit. Mine's 16 pounds on a good day so I'm not sure...it might also depends on how clumsy your cat is?

Not approved for dogs over 10 lbs. :0

I have this cat tree with a 13 lb male cat who fits everywhere, though he prefers the second from the top perch and won't go on the top perch because my 8 lb female cat owns that one and will attack him if he goes on it. (She stays off his favorite perch, though I've never seen him fight for it.

@okham: Hopefully the cats will be distracted by the box this thing comes in and will allow you to assemble it in peace.

@stanleys: Generally the way it works :)

Never understood why cat condos cost so much money. They're pieces of plywood with carpet stapled to it

@bhcompy: Sure, the plywood + the wooden poles + the carpet + the stapler and staples + the nails and screws + the rope for the poles might not cost this much. But add on the time it would take me to build this from scratch (at say $20 an hour) and I'm looking at this price or likely higher. And the result would be shoddier.

Which is, I suppose, why companies charge "so much" for them. Probably a high profit margin but the company is going to charge what people will pay, and people will pay it because the average consumer isn't going to benefit from building their own.
