Overall Rating – 5 Stars
1 800 Pet Meds recently shipped me the Whisker World Deluxe 3 Tier Cat Tree for review. My cats and I like it very much and I recommend this product for families with cats.
Assembly – 4 1/2 Stars
Overall the cat tree was very simple to assemble with no tools required and barely a glance at the instructions.
The cat tree came in a box and required assembly. There were instructions for how to assemble the tree, but they really were not necessary. I was able to leisurely to assemble most of the cat tree within 25 minutes by looking at the picture on the box without reading the instructions. The only tricky part for me was screwing in the cage toy. This involved a double threaded screw and I eventually did look at the instructions for this last part. Aside from that one component, the cat tree was very simple to assemble.
Sturdiness – 5 Stars
The cat tree holds up well to jumping, climbing, and scratching without tipping or teetering.
Portability – 5 Stars
The cat tree is very easy to move once it is assembled. Unlike other multi-tiered cat trees, this cat tree is extremely light weight and can be carried up a flight of stairs without difficulty.
Usage – 4 stars
I have six cats ranging in age from 5 – 14 years old. 4 out of 6 cats liked the cat tree and repeatedly used it. Merlin, our oldest cat and Pepe, our biggest cat, were not interested. The rest of this review will focus on the four cats that did use the cat tree.
Most of my cats are ten or older and not as playful as their younger counter parts, so they did not take advantage of the built in toy balls. I did not add catnip to the cat cage toy so I don’t know if that would have made a difference.
3 of my cats liked the ledges and repeatedly used them. 10-year-old Emmitt preferred the lowest ledge located at ground level, but occasionally also liked the middle ledge above the cat cave. 13-year-old Ramona and 5-year-old Casper both liked the top two ledges as well as the cat cave.
4 of my cats liked the various scratching posts and repeatedly used them.
My cats were very casual about the cat tree, coming and going as they wished. The reason I know they liked it is that they repeatedly came back to it. As many as three cats used the cat tree simultaneously.
Overall I’m very pleased with how easy the Whisker World Deluxe 3 Tier Cat Tree was to assemble, and how much my cats liked it. I especially recommend this product for multi-cat households.
