This cat tree with leopard spots stands at 18"W x 17.5"L x 28"H. There are some hanging toys included for added fun for your cats. Faux fur is used for this cat tree so you need not worry about the material used if you're an animal lover. Based on customer reviews, the leopard spotted cat tree is more suitable for cats less than 14 pounds. Even if the ad specifies that it can accommodate cats up to 20 lbs, from general review it is seen that this leopard cat tree might not earn brownie points with big cats. It is sturdy, well built and the fabric is of good quality making it resistant to scratches.

      As a cat-parent I find these play houses so unique. My problem is that my cat weighs 20 lbs. These are not only useful but very pleasing to the eye. Voted up, marked useful and awesome.

      I love the beanstalk one! I have a home made cat tree that is seven feet tall with two shelves plus one at the very top. It is primitive compared to these, but it does the trick. Awesome!
