New cat hotel!!

This has arrived today in readiness for my new little Russian Blue....I am thrilled with it...just hope she will be as pleased , also! It is very sturdy and a good size, I know my previous cat, would have adored it, God Bless her. She used her scratching post every morning until she died, and it was nothing like this!!!Different generation and different facilities!!

Best buy ever!

My cat loves it! Do not hesitate to buy one, you can't go wrong!


My two Bengals love this! Great value for money.

Best buy ever

I have three adult cats and they all took to this straight away. It's very sturdy and looks so much better than traditional cat trees. The top bed is always occupied, one cat gets off, another gets on. They don't use the bottom den but the top den gets used. My cats have never shared beds but are happy to share this. I am going to order a second one! The only negative is that you can't remove the top bed for cleaning.

My cats LOVE this!!!

We received our delivery today and as soon as we unpacked it my cats were all over it. It came already assembled so we literally had to just remove the box! The compartments are great, each has a toy hanging, there's a bed on top also! The bottom compartment and middle one have a hole in between so they can climb around inside from one to the other. The size is great too!! I think for 2 cats it's perfect. There's enough room for them both to play. It's very sturdy too when they are climbing and hanging off it. I recommend this product to anyone who has cats!

what a monster!

this scratching barrel has earned the nickname "the monster" in this house, and it truly is! make sure you get the tape measure out before you buy this item, it lives up to its XXL description. i bought this mostly for its height of scratch area, and my cat who likes vertical scratching is in seventh heaven with this, she can stretch right up to her full height. the large plush platform is my other cats evening roost, he can survey all that goes on in perfect comfort. he is a big cat and there is more than enough room for him. neither of my cats climb the monster or make much use of the hideaways but i am confident that it would be stable enough for the most energetic kitty to do both without it tipping over. i love this product and love the price that zooplus was able to offer it at. well done, cant recommend highly enough.


My cats love this barrel ,gives a lot fun for them and our family .They like to play seek and hide ,up and down and also they adore scratch it ,ofcorse sleeping on the top they like the most.

Pleased ??

yes.. very pleased with this smart item... xmas pressie for my 2 cats, one has already proven hard to get out of the lower den as he saw me examining the item wen it arrived.. I like the non fussy, space saving, design; the colours and the multiple-use ...scratchpad, climber, 3 inner dens-cat can climb inside between lowest and middle den-3 toys attached(for a time anyhow lol) and a padded/plush top 'reclining' space which is tall enough to enable cats to gaze out of window. Happy with my choice. Thanx Zooplus for offering this deal...and providing excellent service.

Fantastic purchase

Speedy delivery & has only been out of the box for 10mins before one of my cats started to investigate. Love that it is ready to go - its tall, spacious & sturdy. Both my cats are on the large size - and they fit nicely into the hidey holes. Considering another one already for the bedroom


Bought this scratching barrel for my 2 pussy cats and they love it, especially our timid cat Fudge. She feels safe sleeping on the top padded bed so much she has just tried to push our other cat Raison off who is fast asleep on it. The barrel is very sturdy and the scratching rope around the barrel is very good quality. Going to order another barrel as we have to carry the barrel up and down the stairs every day so the pussy cats can us it during the day and night.

They love it

Received this yesterday and when my cats let me get it out of the box they where all over it, sadly the toys only lasted half an hour but still with one in the middle and one upside down in the bottom they love it

best stand iv brought. great size for big cats

Ever since it came my cat has been sleeping on it day in day out. I'd recommend any owner to get one.

Fantastic purchase

Arrived within 2 days of ordering and exactly as described. Absolutely no smell as experienced by a couple of other customers. Height is perfect for cat to lie on top and look out of window. Sits neatly in corner of room behind settee - well worth the £45 paid.


I bought this after reading the reviews and all I can say is, it's brilliant. My two Ragdolls love it. It's sturdy and safe, even with them hanging on to the side, trying to 'kill' the attached toys. If you're after a decent, quality and steady post, then look no further.

Five Stars from a Fussy Moggy!

I brought two of the Diogenes XXL Scratching Barrels, and my little moggy Wallace loves them both! I must admit to not reading the description in its entirety so the little hanging toys in each of the caves came as a pleasant surprise. It's a very sturdy product, not a single wobble no matter how ferociously Wallace flings himself at it! Even better than Wallace loving it, it came ready assembled and all I had to do was drag it up the stairs! I really cannot recommend this product enough for anyone who wants a stable, decent sized bit of cat furniture.
