    Hi just wanting advice about cat trees. Was thinking about getting one but was wondering do cats really like them or are they just another gimick? Those of you who have them, do your cats like them? Any other advice on these ie. type, size etc... TIA

    Definitely not a gimmick. Worth their weight in gold, in fact.

    if you want to keep your furniture intact deff get one.
    i have a small and medium sized one but gonna make my own large one.

    the recomended height depends on your cat, it shud be tall enuff for your cat to stretch out fully.

    pets at home have jst got some nice ones in. have a look on their website

    I got it locally (channel islands!) i can ask the owner of the shop where she ordered it?? If you want?
    It was £99.99.
    Yeah my cats play around in my room, but worse they all sleep on my double bed!!! And they all still try to push me off!! lol!! So i am getting them a big tree/sleeper so i can then sleep in peace........hopefully!! lol!! x

    The cat tree I have for my cat comes from zooplus. They have a great selection and are invaluable! My cat loves hers and I'm even looking for a second one for her for upstairs. :D

    That really is a lovely cat tree you have there Acacia...it looks a good size. :)

    They can be quite expensive, but I would reccomend saving to buy the biggest you can afford, otherwise you'll end up like me having to buy another one as your cats have out grown it.

    Ebay also have a load of good second hand cat trees that have reportedly not been used.

    @AlexCatTrees please stop digging up old threads just to sell your product. You are cluttering up the forum - You have posted a new thread about them but really if someone wanted a tree in 2009, they probably have one by now

    Thankyou
