This arrived in perfect condition and is really chunky and robust. In fact it looked stunning when first purchased. However my Ragdolls very quickly and systematically shredded every single strand of weave from the top basket, before moving onto the others which I think they thoroughly enjoyed. Within around 4-5 months however, it was only fit for my local tip. I wish I’d taken photos.

Burnt wood cat tree
Reading other reviews I thought I would be getting a great cat tree, very disappointed . The baskets are very Bradley made and bits keep constantly flaking off, the hood that goes on top was dented and the wood platform it stands on had a large chip in it.
Looks great but cats wreck it
Look very posh and sturdy but the cats here had the top covered area wrecked within weeks and totally destroyed not with bits of basket everywhere.
They also thought the lowest level was a posh litter box!
This cat tree looks good, tallest basket is a bit wobbly and every time the cat jumps in it hits the wall and marks it, i wanted something sturdy that looked good and would last, but the top basket was trashed after only 6 months, it looked great until one cat discovered he could sit on top and literally claw the top of the basket to shreds, such a shame they don't sell replacement beds as now i must throw away the whole thing, as it looks awful!
Looks Great - Lasts 5mins
I loved the look of this Cat Tree. I thought being wood and woven basket it would last longer than the fluffy chipboard covered ones. Well within 1 week the baskets had been clawed to shreds. The overall wood part has lasted, but theres no option to purchase Replacement Baskets. So you have to basically rebuild them yourself.

For the money I expected this to be made of better quality materials.
The wood is very soft & dents/marks very easily, I have only had it a week & there are scratch marks all over it (not counting the dents it arrived with) - surley a cat scratching post should withstand scratches?
My cats seem to enjoy chewing the baskets too & I have to pick up the shards daily.
It does look nice but clearly isn't going to be up to the job.
I got this to replace my Gingerbread Cat Tree which is over 2 years old & still going strong, however I think I will hang on to that as I can't see this one lasting the distance.
Wish I had tried the Banana Leaf tree instead...on the plus side the cats do seem to love it.
