Just because your cat lives indoors doesn’t mean he doesn’t pretend he lives in the jungle. Cat trees satisfy your BFF’s climbing, jumping and stalking needs, and because they come in so many shapes and sizes, you can definitely find a cat tree that both fits your style and your space.
The only problem with cat trees is that there are just so many out there for you to choose from. To help you out, The Dodo rounded up 10 cat trees that are most-loved by Amazon reviewers so you can go into your decision-making process with thousands of other cat parents (and their cats) guiding you in the right direction.
This cat tree from Nova isn’t just a tree — it’s an actual palace. The tree has four levels for your cat to climb, including two hideouts, three scratching posts and six platforms where he can perch. Over 13,000 people have rated this tree five stars, with one cat parent writing, “My full-grown cats love it. The kitten loves it. They all use it, climb on it, sit inside one of the compartments or on the little levels.”
If the 62-inch tree isn’t cutting it for your cat, try Go Pet Club’s 72-inch model, complete with two ladders leading to two hideouts, and three super-tall perches. Over 11,000 people say their cats love this tree. “Our kitty absolutely loves it,” one five-star reviewer wrote, calling the tree “puurrfect!” They continued, “In fact, on the first day, she spent several hours hanging out there, exploring, playing and napping.”
If you’re looking for a sturdy, simple cat tree, Amazon Basics offers just that. Its three-story tree comes with seven jute-covered scratching posts, three carpeted platforms and a top-tier nest to hang out in. “I tried very, very hard to find a better tree (bigger, etc.) but this is definitely the best cat tree for the price,” one of the 6,900 five-star reviewers wrote. “I love that it has so many scratching posts ... He literally spends most of his time in the dish on this tree. It's his absolute favorite place to sleep.”
Finally, Amazon Basics rounds out the best-loved list with the brand’s multi-level cat tree. It comes in a handful of different setups, with each one offering an impressive number of levels, hideouts and platforms. It’s basically a deluxe kitty condo, and one five-star pet parent wrote, “After a long search and much deliberation, we decided on this cat tree, and couldn't be happier with what we got!! The assembly took less than 30 minutes and once we placed our cat on one of the levels to show him what it was for, we couldn't get him off of it.”
