The Best Small Cat Trees
Most cats have a few things in common: they love to play, and they love to have a comfortable place to rest after, the higher up the better! This is where a cat tree condo comes in very handy. It's a one stop toy, scratching post and resting place for your cat. They come in varying sizes, from very small, which are no more than a glorified cat scratching post, to medium, which can be a few levels, to large, elaborate almost cat villages. This article will look at some of the more moderate medium-sized ones available today.
There are a few things you need to look for when selecting a cat tree for your home. The first is the amount of space, or footprint, that they are going to take up. The second is that they are sturdy, and designed in a way which will distract your cat or cats. The third is that they are easy to assemble, and disassemble if you need to. All of the medium cat condos selected for this article have these features in common.
They also have two more things - they are highly regarded by the people who have previously purchased them, and they are all available for purchase online at Amazon, sometimes at greatly reduced prices.

BestPet 42" Beige Cat Tree Condo Scratcher
If you've got a tighter budget and want a cat tree condo which doesn't take up quite as much room the BestPet 42" Beige Cat Tree Condo Scratcher might suit you and your cat's need nicely. It has three levels, starting with the hidey hole at the bottom, a perch below the second level, which is perfect for cats wanting to hide and bat at other passing cats, a second level above that and a tower level, with a mouse toy attached just below it.
The cat tree will take abut 10 minutes to put together, and you will need a phillips head screwdriver handy for some parts of it. The mouse toy is a great idea, but it is not very securely attached, and you are likely to find it somewhere else in your house in short notice. Also, due to the design of the highest post it tends to flex a bit as your cats are jumping from level to level, so bear this in mind.
Overall, this is a good cat tree condo for the price, and would be great as a starter or if you don't have much to spend.
