Good value and the cats love them
These were such a good price, we got 2 for our 3 kittens, to help keep them off the furniture, thinking we would have them in separate rooms. Actually the best game is jumping from one post to the other so we keep them together! They are slightly insecure and will probably break eventually with all the playing, but they are more than worth the money.

This was a bargain at £10 so I didn't expect much when it arrived. Got to say I'm very impressed as are my two cats who use it daily and theres hardly any wear on it. This is by far the best, tallest and most attractive scratch post iv bought them in 11years

Olga Cat Tree
Great scratch post. My cats love it.
Really pleased with how tall and sturdy this scratcher is, my cat loves it!
Fantastic price does the job and looks nice anywhere in the house. Would highly recommend to friends and family.
One will not be enough!
I've just ordered the cats a 3rd Olga post! They are great - tall enough for even the longest cat to get a good stretch up and scratch. The base is nice and heavy and none of them have ever tipped, however much gets thrown at them (unlike many others!). Fantastic value too.
Fantastic scratch post
Excellent scratch post and my cats can stretch full length on it. Much better than ones i've seen in shops. Sturdy and great quality. Ordered another for my mums cat too. Great service as always from Zooplus with quick delivery and well packaged. Thanks!

Great cat tree for little money
I bought it in 2014 and I have no regrets. It's regularly used... Great value for money
great tall scratching post, instant hit and looks nice too.
My 18 month old cat had 3 other scratch post none as tall as this one, he can really stand up fully to scratch his claws which hopefully will stop him scratching my kitchen wall at night time. We have this post in the living room, but transfer it at night time into the kitchen where my cat sleep in his bed. I am thinking of buying him another one so as to avoid having to move the one we have each night. I would highly recommend this post for cats, it is very good. Only one very small complaint, the base could be a bit heavier because when he jumps at the post he knocks it over. I put my foot on the base and encourage him to jumps up which he does, this gives me as well as my cat hours of fun. Excellent prices for such a tall post as well. Well done Zooplus

Just the job
Bought this 2 years ago and my cat loves it. She can stretch and have a really good scratch. It's first job when she gets up in the morning. Obviously sets her up for brekkies. She has finally broken down the sisal but it has lasted well for the amount of use it gets. Am ordering another one today.
A whopper- Great value!
Fantastic size and quality for the price, delivery was super fast too!
Really well used already!!!!
We have 3 kitten/cats aged between 8 & 19 months old and the post we have is not tall enough for the older two now. This post only arrived yesterday, and they spent most of the evening stretching and playing around and up it. Today it is sunny and I've had the door open but they still keep on coming in for a stretch and scratch!! Really pleased with the construction too.
Great height and very well made!
Bought two of these for two cat households when on offer (though they would still be good at full price) and really impressed. Very good height for my big cat to have a full body stretch on, the base is solid and covered in a neutral faux fur and the post itself is in a hard-wearing rope...

A great buy.
Only got today, but so far so good. I have 2 x 9 month old kittens who are scratching absolutely everything especially the spindles on the stairs, they do have a cat tree but that's in one place. They thankfully immediately took to this. It's sturdy but definitely needs to be against a wall when they're leaping onto it as they're very boisterous. They've already stretched to their length & still room to go. A good buy & will be buying some more to place around the house.
Only lasted three months
I bought this tall post for my cats because one of them is a big boy and they like to stretch to full height to scratch. Somehow they managed to break it in 3 months. The post just snapped the wood on the base & was unusable after that. I only have two cats, one is under a year, but they do play rough, and I see that other people have given very satisfying reviews. I would just warn that if your cats are very playful, the base is not really sturdy enough for the height of the post. However, Zooplus were great when I advised it had broken, I emailed pictures and they refunded me in full straight away. Other toys that I have purchased have been fine.
I bought the post a year ago and I'm just about to buy another. It's a great sturdy design, and has never wobbled even when my larger cat stretches on it, and allows him to stretch to full height and still have space to go. My smaller cats enjoy sitting on the top of it, and climbing up. The base is very soft. The one tiny issue is my cats tend to scratch in the same place, so the rope has broken. It would be great if you could turn the post the other way once that happens - but I guess that would mean less repeat sales! It still took a year of scratching in exactly the same place though. Highly recommended product with an excellent price, and will be back again I'm sure!
Great for stretching, bit wobbly though
My cats both love this post - it is tall enough for them to stretch up it full-length (though they are not particularly big cats. Might be too short for a taller one) They also like to run up it & perch on the top like a demented bird. But however much I tighten the nut on the bottom, the pole does wobble quite a bit on the base. I've tried adding a couple of metal washers between the pole & the base but that doesn't help - I will buy a couple of thicker rubber ones & see what that does. (The cats don't mind the wobble but I'm concerned it might snap suddenly sometime & fling them against the wall)
Good for little cats too.
My cat loves this. She's not a big cat but she used to always pull standard sized posts over. This one stays upright and she can get a good stretch all the way to the top. One happy cat.

Great morning stretch and scratch!
My two girls love this sturdy post - when they wake up they always go for a stretch and a scratch. Some days one sits on the top, the other climbs up and they start play fighting. Best of all, they have lost interest in scratching my chairs!
I would have given this *****, had it not been for the fact that the base of the post just broke into many pieces and cannot be repaired! My cat uses it to scratch and stretch - and loves it - but he has never climbed up it or hung from it. It really needs to be made stronger! Manufactures please take note!
My large (tall) cats love this scratching post as it is a more appropriate height for their size. It is a lovely neutral colour and blends in well with the decor.
Best scratching post!
I have re-ordered this item several times. In my opinion, its definitely the best! Its the perfect height for cats to fully stretch whilst scratching and good for the occasional climb, but not so tall that it sticks out like a sore thumb within your living environment. I noticed this product was not showing online a few days ago and I contacted a sales advisor who thought it may have been discontinued. I'm very pleased to see it back in stock - please Zooplus, do not discontinue this item!
Tall cat scratching post - Olga
I bought one a couple of years ago and its grreat for my big cat who frequently uses the post. its excellent!
Our cats have lots of cat trees including a Hicat ceiling to floor cat tree but they love this tall scratching post. The only downside is they use it so much we need to replace it from time to time because they wear it out but at this price we don't mind and it is perfect to place by the sofa as they scratch the post and not our sofa.

Good Size, Very Popular
You get exactly what you expect, and the plush on the base actually looks quite nice and not cheap like on some cat products. Our kittens love it.

Lovely Scratch Post Nice Size
Great Scratch post much bigger than I expected a lot taller than my old one so plenty of room for the kittys to stretch up it! really nice neutral colour so would go in any room. Well made too great value product for the money most other posts were £20 plus this was much better made than I was expecting. Highly recommended.
Compliments Filou XXL Cat Tree
Izzi loves her Filou XXL Cat Tree but none of the posts were really tall enough for her to be able to stretch fully, wanted something upstairs, on the landing, that didn't take up too much floor space (unlike the Filou !). The Olga is purr-fect on both counts, & compliments the Filou if downstairs. <br>Love Zooplus but tend to order when items are discounted & <i>is</i> frustrating when prices are dropped further AFTER an order's received !
I am on my 2nd one of these posts and I can only reiterate what everyone else has said, EXCEPT for the negative ones! It is so sturdy, tall and well made, the only reason I am thinking of buying a third, is because it is used so much that the rope is a little shredded and over time (long time) it looks a bit unsightly but that's just me :-) please don't stop making these posts. BTW. I have two BIG Persian boys.

I have just purchased one of these for my Bombay cat..and he is a very big & Heavy boy. He loves it..as he can stretch ...and not topple it over ..so far. It is very sturdy. A Brilliant scratch pole...I would recomend to anyone :))))
Tall scratching post
I would definitely recommend this post - it is a good length so that the cat can stretch up to scratch. This is much more natural - like scratching a tree. My kitten also loves to climb the post and perches on the top - also very natural behaviour and teaches her climbing skills! Because it doesn't have a platform on the top, she can get right onto the top and perch which is also good for her learning to balance. It is surprisingly sturdy and has not yet fallen over, even with my cat climbing up it. The post also looks nice and doesn't take up too much space. It arrived quickly, communication about the delivery was excellent and it was extremely well packaged. Very impressed.
This is Great
I've been searching for ages for a longer scratching post for my 2 cats. The sorter ones you can buy at the shops are not long enough for them to fully stretch out on and consequently they used the furniture. Since buying this product they don't use my furniture anymore yippee and they love it. It's great
seemed strong, but broke within a year
i loved this, very good value and large enough for cats to have a good stretch. went to tighten it the other day as it was wobbly, and found out its not the screw that neds tightening, the bottom of the trunk has come away, so nothing can be done to fix the wobble. dissapointing really, as initially impressed. would have hoped it would have lasted a year at least.
Its a brilliant big bargain
I foster cats for AARU and they are not allowed outdoors so I have been looking for a large post like the Olga. Its sturdy, great value and design. The cats can really stretch their whole length. Climb up using back claws and then balance on the top.
This is a lovely safe and sturdy post. Kittens love to launch themselves onto it and hang midway. No sign of any wobble.!
They've lasted years!
Having bought several different scratching posts in the first few months of owning my cats, I was delighted to find one that finally came in neutral colours, and I wouldn't mind having on display in the home. What is even better is that I bought 2 of these 3 years ago, and they are still in perfect condition! I only have one cat now, but she uses both posts (one upstairs and one downstairs) very frequently, and you would never know. Absolutely the best cat scratching post I have ever purchased.

FANTASTIC - STOPPED CARPET & FURNITURE SCRATCHING!
A sturdy, well made product that both my cats use frequently, every day. Consequently they have stopped scratching furniture and carpets. They love to stretch up it. A very good value product.
Really good value post. Great height for my cat, sturdy and goodlooking.
16/03/11 |Iris Lawrie
I have had this for nearly 3 years,and it is only now beginning to fray. I have a very big cat,and he loves it. Will be back to get a replacement soon. EXCELLENT ITEM.
Great for big cats
My cat Domino really likes this scratching post. The last one he had he absolutely terrorised, but this one has so far stood up to everything he can throw at it. It means he can really stretch out and stand up on his back legs. Highly recommended.
Cat doesn't like to scratch this but will stretch up it!
This post, although a lovely height for my Maine coon, is really hard and she won't use it even though I've had it nearly a week. I think this is probably due to the fact she is a house cat and therefore has very soft pads and the sisal rope isn't the same type as that I had on her previous post. This rope is harder so she will only stretch, not claw it. Really disappointed. I hope in time it will soften.
This was part of my first order from Zooplus, and I'm so glad I bought it. It's a scratching post, vantage point, launchpad, and general all-round toy all rolled into one. My kittens didn't waste any time getting to grips with it. They climb it, hang on it, sit on it, play-fight up, on, and around it, jump from it, oh, and sometimes they even use it a scratching post! It's tall, so they'll be able to use it at full stretch even when they grow up, but very stable and never shows any sign of tipping, even when they both jump from it onto the sofa at the same time. When/if they wear it out I won't hesitate to buy another. Thank you Zooplus.
Great value for money!
I have previously spent twice as much on posts that were half the size of this one, cannot fault value! Although there were no assembly instructions, it was really easy to put together, but as I plan to order one of the larger more complicated cat trees at a later date I really hope that they *do* come with instructions!
Couldn't believe my eyes when this post arrived
Although it said large i was shocked to find how tall and stable it actually was, my 6 month Ragdoll kitten loved it so much, i bought another two, (although only 6 months old, he already reaches the top when he stretches up it), so he has one in the lounge, kitchen and bedroom. He has never attempted to scratch the furniture or carpets, he uses it for all sorts of things, a climbing post to get on the kitchen worktop, a good long stretch and scratch. he is no longer curling up double, trying to use what i thought was the tallest post i could get (which are now going to the charity shop), a friend was so impressed when she saw it she ordered one.

Excellent first purchase from Zooplus
This was my first purchase from Zooplus and will certainly not be my last (in fact, I have just placed another order!!). This cat post is brilliant, utterly brilliant. Larger than any I have seen (but not imposing), well made, stable, and of course at a great price. I have seen similar products which are less well made and shorter for triple the price. I have a very contrary 18 week old kitten called Penny who would scratch anything but her old scratch post. I was slightly nervous that she would never use this but as it was inexpensive I thought I would give it a go. The verdict: she loves it. She scratches on it all day, especially after naps. She loves to climb to the top to retrieve the treats I have placed on there for her. I am now going to buy a second for downstairs. Overall: brilliant. Thank you Zooplus.
Excellent scratching post
My cats love this scratching post. It's tall enough and stable enough for them to climb it. It's standing up well to their regular use. I'm going to buy a second because it's been such a hit with them.
I have a ragdoll kitten and i know he will grow very large, he already reaches the top of most scratch posts and has to bend his back, i bought the Olga post and it is brilliant, he only comes halfway up it at full stretch, to scratch to his hearts content. i am so impressed and haven't been able to find one so good at this amazing price, i have ordered 2 more to put in other rooms.

My cays love it
This arrived this morning & my 2 cats absolutely love it - The height is brilliant my cats throw themselves up and off it. Would defo have another and at a great price as well!

Olga cat tree
Excellent my cats love it very sturdy and well made very fast delivery.
i have been looking for a large post for my two kitties for ages and finally i found a decent priced one! its fantastic and they love it. delivery was very fast too! 5 star

Brilliant value for money
My maine coon girl goes nuts over this post. It's big enough to allow her to climb up to the top and she can happily spend hours playing on it. It looks inoffensive (big plus since I have it in the living room) and doesn't take up much space. I'm planning on getting a second!
once again zooplus has excelled themselves with good service and good products...this post is excellent quality and good value for money...i have been very pleased with all the products ive purchased from zooplus...
Cats using it so far
I was worried as I had bought before a big cat tree for nothing. They haven't used the scratching posts because of the connections. My cats like the scratching post with no middle junction as most of the cat trees in this website have. I wasn't sure if this post would be big enough. I was happy when my cats have started using it and leaving the sofa alone. Very good value for money as I've paid ten pounds for a ridiculous sisal hanger that they never used and this post was almost the same price.
I have a cat who loves to scratch wallpaper, but he has turned his attentions to this tree. Wonderfully tall for him to stretch and climb up. Good wide base too so it doesnt topple over when hes having one of his mad over excited moments. Very pleased with it.
I bought one of these for my cat who seemed to have outgrown her previous one. When it 1st arrived I thought it was a bit tall but actually its perfect. She can stretch out fully up against it and climbs it (especially when I put a toy mouse on top). She loves sliding around the bottom of it at full speed chasing her tail! Its got a lovely soft covered base and perfect scratching sissel post. Completely recommend one!
My cat watched as I unpacked and set this up, then immediately scratched and scratched on it.. A very good start. It's a very good height as well so she can really stretch and as she is scratching
Sofa saver and frustration reliever
The cat had started scratching our new leather sofa. I ordered the Olga cat tree, which came very quickly and I placed it to the side of the entrance to the room, where she'd been scratching so I thought she'd use it. No no she continued sofa scratching. So I placed the tree against the sofa hiding the place she'd been scratching. With a bit of cat nip as incentive at the start, she has used it ever since. And hasn't transferred to scratching other bits of the sofa as I'd feared. Considering the awful damage she did to my mum and dad's sofas before she moved in with us, this is truly a godsend!!
perfect - all scratch posts should be this tall for fully grown moggies. Have had mine for nearly a year now and its still going strong
Solution to big problem!!
This very tall post stopped both my birmans scratching on the carpet!! They really love it!!
05/05/07 |Mrs M Hatherall
Simple but effective
This scratching post is nice and tall so my cats can have a good stretch on it as well as scratching and climbing up it. It was easy to assemble and so far is standing up to daily wear and tear. Good value for the money
08/03/07 |R. Dickinson
My cat would prefer a 'carpet' which is less plush/fleecy and more like real floor-carpet, but the post itself is functional and reasonably priced.
My kitties love it!!
My 2 burmese love chasing each other up this sratching post!!!!
