I have 4 large cats and they all love this barrel very good play value for them too

Super product!

My two cats absolutely love these! They loved them so much that I bought two- one for each cat. They love sleeping in the top and playing with the toys hung from the 'portholes'. I heartily recommend these. :)

Excellent purchase for my lot

I currently have two cats, a moggy and a Maine Coon kitten with another MC on the way. What can I say?? This is the best purchase I have made for them. In the past none of my cats have ever bothered with cat trees but they LOVE this barrel. Together with the Natural VI tree the cats are never off these. They fight for top spot. Sooo glad with my buys :)

Get this cat scratcher/tree you won't be disappointed

If you're hovering about getting this then let me say that you need to stop hovering and get it. It's one of the best cat trees/scratchers you could invest in regardless of how massive or tiny your bundle of fur is. That aside it lasts well despite suffering the exuberant attentions of my two Norwegian Forest Cats over the past two years. For some reason (apart from the toys) it looks as good as new despite use all day round. I've gotten a second one for upstairs as well. Best sites to place it are near windows or key kitty observation points.

Great scratch barrel and hidey hole

My 2 ragdoll kittens love to play hide n seek in the barrel and snooze on the top deck. Really pleased with this, it's good quality and they use it for scratching and climbing, as well as playing and for somewhere to sleep. Would recommend, good for larger vat breeds too.

Best scratch post ever!

I have two norweigian forest cats which are a very large breed, as soon as I pulled this out of the box they knew it was for them, they got straight inside and have really attached to it since. I have a male and a female and the female likes to sit on the top which is about a meter high to be safe from the boy cat (he's bit of a bully). This is by far the best pet product I have ever seen and its value for money is out of this world as I had a much smaller scratch post for £40, but They love to sleep inside and play with each other. Brilliant Fabulous Fantastic

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
