Cheryl loves cats. She got her first one when she was just two. Cats make life more purr-fect. She also likes gerbils.

Learn how to build a cat tree, or choose one to purchase

Whether you are wanting either to build a Cat Tree or purchase one, you've come to the right place.

I built a basic cat climbing toy from scratch, and I have also purchased and assembled a cat tree.

Our cats enjoy being up higher at times, and also looking out the window. I wanted to provide them with something that would hold them without concern of it tipping over or wobbling. For us, the best cat trees are sturdy ones.

What is your preference?

Would you rather build a cat tree from scratch, or assemble one that is already to put together?

Since then, I found a cat tree by Amarakat. - It has a sturdy wide base. Purr-fect.

The other thing that I liked about this particular cat tree, is that it was closer to the size that I wanted.

I wanted a cat tree that came up to our windowsill. The top platform was too high, but the second platform was just right. So I just left off the top platform and its supporting post.

Another great feature about this cat tree is that the posts are wrapped in sisal, perfect for cats to claw.

If I had the space, I would definitely check out this large cat tree. - It is the Go Pet Club Cat Tree, and it measures 50W x 26L x 72H. It comes in beige.

It is also reported as being very sturdy. Most reviewers have stated that it was easy to assemble. The ladder coming down to the floor helps to give this unit a wider base.

In addition to multiple levels, it has cubby holes and a carpeted ladder. If we had the space, I'm sure that our cats would love this one.

 

The following cat trees also have wide bases, making them a sturdy choice. They all have posts that are covered in natural sisal.

They are arranged from the shortest to the tallest.

My cats have enjoyed little toys hanging from the perch; but not so much when they got carried away with playing, that they fell off the perch. So I recommend either hanging the toys from a lower perch, or else not adding the hanging toy and just letting the cats play with it on its own.

This small size cat tree is cute and also stylish. The perch in the middle looks like a little lounge, and the larger perch is somewhat enclosed, but has a hole large enough for most cats to come and go.

I like the wide angled base of this one, and also the streamlined look

It could work well by a window, or in a corner.

 

This next one doesn't have such a wide base.

However, I picked it too because it has the extra side support of the ladder. I think the ladder will help to make it sturdy as well.

I also know that a lot of cat prefer having the extra height, so that they can look down on their humans.

This larger cat tree reminds me of a jungle gym. It has a rope, ladder, a hammock, different levels to perch on, a rounded bed, and a hole to climb through.

If we had the space, I would get one of these.
