Check the stability regularly and tighten the screws when needed.

Scratching barrel

The Scratching Barrel is absolutely amazing. Zebedee, my cat, absolutely loves it. It tall and wide. Perfect for a big boy cat. He's enjoying thw hanging balls and weaving his way inside and on top of it. It's perfect and well worth the money. A brilliant buy.

Great barrel

This is large. I'm happy with the quality cat is happy too. I have a 5kg BSH he can navigate the dens well. Uses it as a scratch post my main reason for buying it and, even climbs it. Quality seems good. It is sturdy and doesn't move when he climbs it.

Ragdoll Kitten Loves!!!

It usually takes my 7 month old Ragdoll, Bramble, awhile to accept new things. Not this one. He was trying to climb it as I was still unwrapping it. Seems really sturdy- just have to wait and see what time and massive attention from my cat brings.

Fantastic & big

Very big - my 4 cats LOVE hiding in there & the ball attachments (probably won’t last long though!!) I will be purchasing again for upstairs. I find cat trees usually break & fall apart & you have to put them together but this is just one big barrel it’s perfect don’t need to do anything but stick the bed on top!

An absolute hit!

My Siberian cat absolutely loves this! She comfortably lays in the top bed and loves the internal cosy ones! And my furniture is thankful for the acres of scratching pads. It takes up so little space and was brilliant value for money!

Scratch Barrel

This Barrel is well worth the money. My boys use it for their claws but also love to curl up and have a catnip in the cosy bed on the top of it!9

Not bad for the average size cat..

Not bad for the price l but the natural paradise ones are a lot bigger and better made (solid wood). The entrance holes are small if you've larger cats

CATS L0VE IT

Great for smaller spaces, the cats took to it immediately and are very happy. Lots of room for all size cats. Bed on top should be secured properly - why not build it in?

Great value for money

My maine coon loves this! She's a big girl and this XL barrel fits her comfortably. She usually lies on the top so she can look out the window at the same time, leaving the cubbies for our smaller cats. But she can jump up to, and down from, the top perch with ease and with no wobbles. The barrel is very sturdy and good quality too. The fact it's now in the sale I may even consider another if I can sneak it past my other half!

Heavensent

My Wednesday inhabits the penthouse with the roof garden, whilst Haribo is happy taking a nap at groundfloor level . he will however hide his toys in the first floor area.I have had the tower now for 2 years, and it still looks as good as new, good quality make. Cats love it. They ignore any other furniture they previously attacked.

Great value

This is much better than the usual tree type scratching posts. It's sturdier and less likely to topple. The scratching material is better than the usual wound rope. I want another!

Smelly

I think it's great, but the cat sadly not so sure. She has a look at it in passing but the chemical smell that emits from it is pretty strong. I guess it's the glue. Hoping that when that smell dispels that she may show more of an interest.

Great scratching barrel 😌

I have six cats and they absolutely love this for hide & seek and using it to scratch the top comfy cushion is constantly swapped by different cats as they all want to sit there money well spent 😁

Great barrel and realistically sized

I ordered this as I have 2 large cats (5 & 5.5kg) I was getting very frustrated at the tiny size if most scratch posts as the boys can’t reach up and stretch. Needless to say the sofa took a battering. They were a little nervous of this at first as it is much bigger than any cat furniture we have had before but they have been in it to play & the bed in top is very comfy. My only criticism would be that you can see the mdf on the top a bit even with the bed in place.

Instant success

We had hardly got this out the box when our boys were investigating. Hamish our 7kg Maine Coon went straight into the top compartment while Angus found he could move from the bottom to the middle with ease. Considering the cardboard box it came in is still sitting on the floor while they are in the barrel shoes what a success it is! Only down side.... will need a little more Velcro to keep top bed secure.
