    me again..(bet your sick of me);)

    Are cat trees worth it? I already have one scratch post but was thinking of getting either another or a tree?

    If they are worth it wheres the best place to get one?

    well in that case Zooplus will be the best bet they have offers on all the time.

    I would defiantly recommend one I got my first one here a few months ago

    The cats love it and its now located in the living room by the windows, the cats can view the whole backyard from high up. They will take running leaps at it to climb up it.

    I cant remeber how much it cost me just that the whole trip came to just over 300$ (that was also including a water foundation and some fish supplies)

    This one is located in my bedroom and its to help the cats to get up the window as they used to try to use my bookshelves and would knock my books flying

    I would defiantly recommend them

    My girl snapped a small cat tree in two recently but our proper tree is still going strong and the cats LOVE it. Well worth the £70 I think it was that I paid for it. :D I was sceptical before as I worried the cats wouldn't use it but they really do.

    definately worth it and good for them if they are house cats, I have two for mine, this one and this one

    The second one is new and I haven't taken any pic of them on it yet, but here's one of them on the first tree

    I got mine on eBay and tbh had no issues with this seller.... but I tend to be a bit cautious. Indy and Gypsy are constantly all over it and Indy is really getting some muscle now.

    wherever you get one from... it is definately worth it, especially for indoor kitties

    I got a fabulous one from zoo-plus a year or so ago, it's about 7' tall. My part norweigian forest cat loves it, and the new kitten does too! I got one with a big square base that has been pretty solid. It cost me about £100, worth every bleedin' penny!

    Rio actually has two cat trees, the first one was from the local pet shop & cost £50 but we found a sticker underneath it which said £84.99!! then, a couple of months later we found a really nice one (better than the first, in my opinion) in Tescos. Again, we said we'd pay up to £50 for it but when she scanned it it was £25!! absolute bargain!! it's got 3 big scratch posts, 3 levels, a tunnel & a house/bed at the bottom. Would definately recommend looking in there!!

    We bought this one as a bit of a budget option from Zooplus and Little Man is thrilled with it. He's always bouncing around all over it and loves the cozy bed at the top, he's even happier when I hide jingley toys around it!

    Money extremely well spent in my opinion.

    Hi,

    They are gorgeous,I like the crows nest and the really tall ones but the scratcher with the three beds is also lovely.

    I have just emailed him to see if he will ship to Switzerland.We have completely naff ones here that cost a fortune!

    They are very well made too, so I am told! :D

    I cannot get one until I stop buying cats, so I have stopped now and shall save for one of these! I like the 3 tiered blue one but may go for a neutral colour, I almost bought one last week but managed to refrain myself, sadly.

    It's on my need to get list.
