    Folks I need your help here!

    I'm looking to buy another cat tree for my lot. The problem is that Tiberius is flipping long and huge! We currently have this:

    Trixie Alicante Tree

    But we had to take the top level down and screw it onto the medium level as he couldn't lie on it and it wobbled severely! Here's what it looks like currently (and yes it is tied to the banister as it still wobbles because he's a clumsy sod :D):

    I've been looking at Zooplus but all the photo's I've seen so far have been normal sized cats so I don't think they would suit.

    Slaves to large cats, help please!!! :D

    Have a look here

    Pet Fun Kratzbaum - Kratzbäume direkt vom Hersteller - Startseite

    I've just bought a ceiling tree from them for my NFCs and coonie. Not cheap but you can buy extra wide poles and beds which I did. The poles are made of solid wood. Can't praise it enough

    Ps don't get put off by the fact they are German if you look at the top left where it says Deutsch click on the down arrow and it will translate site into english

    Tigga Towers is designed for Maine Coons (owners for the company breed Coonies too) - they may be expensive initially in outlay but they are worth their weight in gold in durability etc. (psst. if you get one tell them I sent you )

    Try also Russell hardy at Catscratchers.com and Kalvin cat trees they are very strong too. I have one from each of them :)

    I've also got three kalven ones. They are sturdy and last well but perhaps not quite as stylish as the German ones.
