The cat tree was easy enough to assemble. Seems to stay in place and my cat loves it. We set it up yesterday and it was immediately her new favorite place to be. She gets playful on it and is pretty rough with the scratching posts but the tree is stable! Our other cat is not much of a climber but likes to use the bottom scratching post. Will have to see how it holds up over time but so far a great purchase.
I've had several cat towers and so far this is the best one. 5 levels, rope at critical points, and even a stabilizing attachment if it is stationed near a wall.
My cats love to climb it, not so much climbing down. They rather jump sometimes since the rectangles are kinda hard to step down to and I have very agile/energetic cats
Easy to put together and doesn't take up a lot of space.
Our cat loves it. She sleeps on the top shelf and bird watches from the others.
