This Armarkat solid wood cat tree is 89 inches of sheer joy for you and your kitties. Just be sure you have your camera ready once you set this beauty up because there are sure to be LOTS of “Kodak Moments” you’ll be eager to share.
You’ll be happy to know that All NINE of it’s platforms and both kitty condos are made out of solid pine. Scots Pine to be exact. So, put your mind at ease. There is NO Beaver Board to be found here!
Made From Solid Pine Boards!
To keep weight down the posts themselves are made of really thick, super strong cardboard. They are 3.5 inches in diameter and wrapped head to toe in cat safe sisal rope. It’s glued along the whole length too. If your cats should claw thru it, it won’t unwind and make a mess.
ALSO… in the unlikely event you have a post, platform or other part wear out you can order replacement parts from the manufacturer. This insures your pet furniture investment will last a lifetime.
This is the tallest cat tree we’ve found on the market to date. (You can see another tall wood cat tree with no carpet right here.) So to keep it stable Armarkat has doubled the base so it’s extra thick and heavy. This means that it’s tip resistant.
That said, if you have really large cats or lots of cats you may want to add a bit of extra weight to the bottom or look into a tension pole cat tree like this one.
We had one helpful customer tell us that what she did was place one a weight plate from her boyfriends barbell set onto the bottom and POOF! Even her 16+ pound kitties couldn’t knock it over!
(Ok, in case you don’t know what these weights are I’m linking to one on Amazon here. But any heavy thing like a ROCK or paving stone would work just as well.)
Way up top, and you know how cats like to hangout in high places, there is a super comfy cat hammock AND a bed box. We are given to understand that these are COVETED spots and your kitties may, in fact, vie with one another for dibs on them.
You will be happy to know that said kitty hammock is removable for easy cleaning. All you have to do is slip it off and toss it into the wash. Easy Peasy!
In the end what we like best is the height of this unit and we especially appreciate that the manufacturer stands behind their product and makes replacement parts easy to get. If you are looking for really tall cat furniture but not a true floor to ceiling cat tree this Armarkat solid wood cat tree may be just what the doctor ordered.
