When I first rescued by first kitten Lou, the first thing I thought of buying for him was a cat tree just like this. I've always seen these fixtures through the windows of other houses and in shows and movies and they always looked like such cool things for cats to have. They seem like an equivalent of a tree house for human children. I picked this six foot tall cat tower up for my cat Lou and it is still here with us years later. It has lasted a surprisingly long amount of time given that I now have more than one cat who both love to scratch and jump all over this tower. I love how this tower is a big size that can actually accommodate two cats and I love how it is not difficult to clean. Both of my cats spend a large amount of their day on this cat tower and I don't know what I'd do if it weren't for this tree. If I didn't have this, my couches and carpets would probably get all scratched up!
