Hi, I'm looking at getting Astrid a cat tree to go along with my DIY project I still need to finish.... the weather needs to heat up so I can paint! Lol
I found a person where I am that makes them, so I can pretty much Frankenstein the best of everything to get the ultimate cat tree! Lol and they are actually decently priced, and plus, support local!

So, what cat trees do you have? What are the kitty favourites: height, hiding places, perches?

Thanks guys :)

I would suggest making sure there is a hidey hole in there somewhere. My girl rarely uses it but it's her safe place that no one is allowed to touch her if she's in it.

I've included a screen shot from my gotcha day post on here. This is the first one I got Pierre as it was on offer.

It is very tatty now as he loves it so I'm currently looking for another. The only I'm looking at is tall, goes to the ceiling. The one thing I've learnt about him is he LOVES to get as high as possible :)
I also agree with the above comment about a hiding hole and maybe a scratch post on there too?

I recommend towers with more than one pole to support it. The more sturdy it is the more your cats can enjoy it.

If I wasn't a college student moving around for the next 8+ years probably lol I might end up in a place I can't put holes in the wall. Great idea though

Jason and I made our own, and by Jason and I....... I mean Jason made it!

I do recommend WAYFAIR.COM though for cat towers, although a warning that sometimes the pricing on that website
is completely out to lunch but they do have sales from time to time!

I recently replaced our former Trees with new ones. Most of the new ones stretched almost to the ceiling. One of Max's favourite things to do is to race up the tree sit on the topmost spot and then stretched his arms to the ceiling and make the cutest noises.

Trees that have a place to go into, lounge on, scratch, and just generally play are great. I bought a few of the following types of trees and put some of them together to form a nice kitty PlayStation:
