My baby boy loved this scratching barrel, especially the bed at the top which you can remove to wash. It came all in one box which I only had to place the bed at the top and that's it. Amazing thing!
Unfortunately our cat need an XL tower rather than L - he technically fits in this and on top, but it's cramped. That's my mis-judgement. The bottom hole opens to the middle area but the platform to sit on is very small, even for a cat a bit smaller than ours. The middle hole doesn't open up to the top one which for more agile cats won't be an issue, but our cat needs a step to reach the top hole - the only one he uses! Otherwise its is sturdy and the scratching sides are better than coil posts.
My kitty gives five stars to Kitty Towers Resort and Spa. Her favourite room is the top floor penthouse which is where she checks in to sleep every night. During the day she often checks into basement and levels two or three for a quick snooze. My kitty liked Kitty Towers straight away and she immediately knew that KT is for scratching. KT is a good quality item and I like the colour of it as it matches our furniture. We love it so much that we have ordered a second one for the spare room.
My kittens loved it immediately
Great purchase. Well made, looks good, kittens love it. Find them in morning sleeping together on the top. Littlest one took to it the moment we set it down. Very impressed with the quality. Yes one ball has come off but not so surprising - still have two. Definitely can recommend.
It's a really sturdy and good quality item! I was debating whether a cat tree or scratch barrel would be best and I'm glad I went with this. Currently being used my my adult dsh and her five nearly 4 week old kittens, they love it! The black looks really nice, unfortunately the grey went out of stock and I'm not a fan of beige, yet it fits in well with my house. Judging by the quality I think it will last years, so a very good investment!
Took a while for my cat to fall in love
At first my cat ignored it and wouldn't go anywhere near it. But after a month of it sitting there unused, she suddenly started playing with it, scratching it, and finally sleeping on it all the time! Now she's always perched on top, surveying her domain. Very satisfied!
Best Buy for our kittens
Of all the many things we have bought our kittens this is the Best Buy! They LOVE it and use it all the time. Great as a scratching post, beds to sleep in alone or together, a tunnel and tower to launch themselves up & down; a place to jump out and ambush each other. As you can see it provides hours of entertainment for ALL of us 😂😂😂 and it is well built and well priced. Will be getting another one for upstairs.
This scratching barrel has massively exceeded my expectations! It's sturdy ,stable, looks good and more importantly my two cats adore it. Had it five months now and even with rough continual use it looks new.
Good quality but Pom Pom came off within 3 days of kitten using then
I brought this for my Cat about 18 months ago & it’s been great, he sits on the top and scratches the barrel. Never played in the holes with the Pom Pom’s. We got a kitten a month ago who has played with it for 3 days and 2 of the 3 Pom poms have come off 😫
So far so good
Only had this for 24 hours but so far both kittens love climbing on and playing in this. One in particular loves the balls at the entrance to the holes, hope they last.. Came home from work this morning and both kitties were napping on top so I think we can safely say it's a hit! Fingers crossed it saves my poor sofa! Also it's not as unattractive as other cat furniture and it fits in my scheme quite well.
My ragdoll kitten loves his scratch barrel and spends loads of time charging at and diving in and out the holes. Hours of fun! Highly recommended!
Fab toy for active kittens
First played with and most loved toy by both my ragdoll kitten and me. Saves my furniture and he loves it especially when he has a crazy few mins ☺
5 out of my 6 cats absolutely love this, one has taken up permanent residence in the top hole! Very sturdy and well made. Really pleased with it. Thanks.
Finally, a scratching surface they will use
Tried to get them to use scratching posts, but never interested. Much prefer the carpet or clambering up the side of the armchair... The barrel gives them something they can scratch and climb. They aren't that interested in the lower two 'floors'; but absolutely love the top bit for sleeping on and the top inner 'floor' for jumping into. The balls did not last long (one for just 12 hours). Quality is OK. The main sisal covered bit will last well I think (fur trim and dangling balls, not so much)
21 cats say yesssss
Brilliant, sturdy and space saving, well worth the money
A big hit with the cat & saves the rug
My 1 year old cat loves this, scratches the sides and plays in the holes. Hasn't really sat on the top yet not sure his worked out he can.... Great buy good sturdy quality doesn't fall over when cat climbs up or toddlers have a go too!
this is great for my cat
Good, stable construction. Cat hangs onto it to climb up with no stability issues. She only played in the holes a little bit, however they're a good addition. Bought this as she had outgrown her cat tree- they want an area to scratch where they can fully stretch upwards. This barrel is ideal as she can grab whichever way she wants and it's big enough to use all her body. Good price, fast delivery. No complains.
