Cat Tree by Topeakmart Review
Topeakmart kindly asked me to review one of their many cat tree towers. Of course Ritzy was excited, as he had never had never owned one. When I went to Topeakmart’s website was quite impressed by the large number of cat towers they offered. They also have other pet supplies for dogs and birds. As a dog owner I also peeked around that selections of products.
I picked this 36″H Cat Tree Tower. Ritzy (my cat) is old and large so I thought this would be a good fit for him. They recommend this tree for 2-3 small cats or medium-sized cats. I figured one large cat is perfect. Although, I do not see Ritzy using the third tier, but that is fine by me. It is sturdy and cozy with plush carpet lining just the inside, but the edges as well. This makes it much safer for playing and sleeping. I love the look of it.
The packaging it arrived in was compact. I’m a fan of not using extra packaging. It was easy to assemble. My husband put it together in a matter of minutes and even he was impressed at home quickly and easily it came together. I do have to mention that the screws for the top tier were not in the box. Once I contacted Topeakmart they sent them immediately! No problem.
This 3-tier cat tree is made from particleboard, plush, sisal ropes, metal, paper tubes, and plastic. This plush cat house has a high edged perch with a furry ball, two condos with two doors individually, two scratching posts, and one lower scratching board. The whole structure has 3 tiers. Both a comfortable resting-place and interesting playground. Now to get him inside of it! My little dog was really giving Ritzy a hard time and not letting him explore his new space.
Okay, so we got a bit closer! I put cat nip inside to try and lure him to his new spot. He fell asleep like this for some time. Then I relocated the house to a more secure location. It is recommended you put the cat tree on a flat floor against the wall corner and secure it to the wall by the anti-toppling band included. Please keep children away from the cat tree and avoid humidity. That means I can’t put it in my basement, but it makes a nice addition to our living room.
There is a furry ball tied by an elastic band with a small bell for your cats’ fun. This elastic furry ball can be removed if it is not your cats’ type. You can exchange his/her favorite toy hanging to the small ring. The Ritzy does love this ball and the scratching posts! He mostly scratched the carpets, but I think he will catch on. ( Remember he is old! )
Victory! Once we moved it to a more secure location he settled in his new home. The dog still harasses him. It is just right size and cozy for Ritzy. If you aren’t sure what size cat tower is right for your large cat, Topeakmart has an article explaining how to pick one that would be the best fit.
Overall I am very impressed with this product. The shipping, the look, the feel, and how sturdy it is makes me feel happy. Ritzy agrees!
