    Too Small - However, could be nice for fosters

    I have had this particular Cat Condo for about 2 months or so and I can't say I'm impressed. I had gotten it for my 4 month old female kitten, Zoey. It is very small and would be best suited for small kittens. The only problem with that is kittens grow up very fast. The Condo itself is less than 2 feet tall, standing at about 1 ft 8 in. It isn't all that stable. It wobbles when she jumps up onto it or down onto it. It will fall over or lean heavily if she takes flying leaps at it. The scratching posts are pretty useless and small. Anything larger than a small kitten is unlikely to get a good stretch out of using them and I feel as though the middle scratching post would be awkward to use. Small cats likely wouldn't benefit from the scratching posts either. Especially not the one supporting the perch/hide out. The perch is about 1 foot in diameter. Big enough for an average cat to sit on but laying down on it and taking a nap may be uncomfortable for anything larger than a small cat. The hide out inside the perch is somewhat to nicely roomy enough for a small cat and is plenty big for a small kitten. The tunnel is NOT big enough for anything more than a small kitten and the whole kitten is unlikely to fit inside. It is about five inches in diameter and four inches in length. The ball on the toy inside the tunnel came off just by me grabbing it. Most of it is covered in a soft furry type material that is pale brownish to chocolatey brownish in color. As for durability; other than the ball coming off it stands up to a fair amount, although I feel as though the "ramp" scratching post could be easily torn/broken away from the perch should an accident happy such as someone getting their foot caught under it. It is pretty loose and at a somewhat awkward angle. She is mostly uninterested in the toys and middle scratching post. She will use the middle scratching post to pull herself across the floor though. She will lounge on the top or take a nap inside the perch/hide out. She will somewhat use the ramp scratching post although it doesn't give her that nice STRETCH she needs to exercise the right muscles. I have never seen her once use the tunnel. For Set-up, it was quite simple. The only thing I had an issue with is the ramp attaching to the perch/hide out. Instead of screwing the curved piece to the perch/hideout first, it is a lot easier to screw it to the ramp first instead. Then screw it onto the perch/hide out. Otherwise, you will have a hard time getting the screw to go into the ramp completely. Overall, my biggest problem is the size. A two month old kitten that will grow to be average or larger will likely only get about 3 months good use out of this particular Cat Condo. However, it depends on your view and situation. For a breeders that need exploration spots for kittens or fosters that have cats and need inexpensive solutions for perches and such, this could work out great. Otherwise, saving money and buying a bigger, better cat condo that will last much longer through your furry friend's life is the better alternative. Thanks for reading =)
    Zoey compared to my 2 year old GSDZoey on the perch.

    Great perch for my kitten

    This went together easily and it seems to be quite sturdy. I have it in my kittens room so she can look out the window and enjoy the birds. she seems to like the hiding place too.

    Small but great

    Perfect for kittens or small cats. My 3 babies love this especially loco the oldest kitten. I'm so glad I purchased this and very easy to put together as well

    Nice enough, but small.

    Because I am hardware challenged, I had problems with the EASY picture assembly. Of the 4 (count them) screws possible, I was dumb enough to try them all before I picked the correct first one. This was because the picture didn't specify which screw to use, Small, big, long or short. Everything fit together, was easy to assemble, kittens weren't thrilled. I think cuz of the new assembly smell and they are used to very sturdy furniture. This was sturdy enough for cats this small (I have 3 month old kittens) and rambunctious, but I had to really encourage them to play on it with treats and praise. They like it well enough now, but still liked the empty box better. They are just small enough to fit through the tunnel/loop and love that, but they won't be small enough for long. The little 'house' seems small for a full grown cat. But I won't know until they get bigger. Good for kittens. Mine prefer height to this small, ground floor condo, but its worth the purchase price for a starter.

    Did they use minature cats for the promo picture?

    Just a warning, if you have a normal-sized or fat cat, they won't fit in this cat condo. It is very small and they must have used really really small kittens to take this picture with. Thankfully, our full-grown female cat isn't that big. She hasn't really seemed too interested in this yet either. And the one time that she did get in the top of the condo, her body completely filled it with her head hanging out.
