Tell All Tuesday: A Cat Tree For Larger Cats

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s comin’ to ya’ live from the messy Three Belles Ranch. We had planned to tell you all ‘bout our new cat tree last week, but when the innernets went out, all our plans went to the pig trough.

          The pig trough RaenaBelle? What pig trough are you meowin’ ‘bout?  

 

I’s don’t know sissy. It sounded good, okay? Anyways, a couple of weeks befur we moved back home from the hotel, we were contacted by Yaheetech from amazon and asked ifin we’d review one of their cat trees. You know how much we luvs our cat tree, so sissy and me were like, yeah mommy, tell ‘em yeah. Besides, I’s thought it would make a great birthday/gothcaday purresent too.

          Yeah Raena, me was all in too. But, mommy bein’ the good mommy she is, she had to check out their trees furst. Mommy knows, that we’re kind’a larger girly girls just by the nature of our breed. And, a lot of the pre made cat trees aren’t sturdy enuff or big enuff fur larger kitties like us.

That’s true sissy. Well, after checkin’ out their cat trees, mommy decided on the middle sized one, the Yaheetech 62” Cat Tree. She said it had a nice big base that should make it more stable fur those times when we come flyin’ thru the ranch and leap to the top. Somethin’ we’ve yet been able to do what with all the boxes and stuffs every where.

          Me can’t wait till mommy gets everythin’ put away so we can really check out it’s sturdiness, Raena. Mommy says the average pre made cat tree is really only good fur kittens and adult cats less than 8 pounds who aren’t overly active. So, she had her fingers crossed this tree would work fur us.

It arrived while we were still at the hotel, so mommy left it packed up till we got home. Assembly is required, but everythin’ ya’ need is included in the box. There’s an instruction booklet with drawings, and each piece is labeled with corresponding letters. It does indeed have a nice large base and it also has a security strap that you can use to attach it to the wall behind it. Just be careful when you put it together to make sure you follow the pictures or your security strap will be on the wrong side…like ours. MOL

          Yeah well Raena, mommy never claimed to be a put it together genius. And, it only took ‘bout an hour fur her to get it all put together and moved into a spot in front of a window. It will purrobably take your humans less time, cuz mommy had to keep takin’ breaks and restin’. Not to mention, she had to move things around a bit fur it to fit. It is larger than expected, which is a good thing and means more stability.

Naturally, bein’ cats, we were all over the individual pieces getting in the way helpin’ out while mommy worked tirelessly putting it together. But once it was finished, we didn’t seem to notice. Of course, we eventually tried it out. There is a small dangle toy attached to the top shelf with a piece of elastic, that we recommend you cut off immediately. This is a hanging hazard, especially fur young kittens. Kitties should never be left unsupervised with these dangly toys that come attached to most cat trees and some other cat toys. Mommy removed ours after the supervised foto shoot fur this review.

          Yeah Raena, those dangle toys sure are dangerous. Me nearly hung me’s self when me was a wee kitty girl. The tree’s great without it. And me does mean great. There’s 4 stable shelves and a cubby house that makes a great nappin’ spot. The tippy top basket is a bit small and we’re not sure why they even bothered with the circular tunnel cubby unner the top shelf, but all in all, there’s purrlenty of room fur just ‘bout any size house cat. And mommy really ‘purreciates the security strap and says it would come in handy fur those extremely active kitties.

I’s sure glad you didn’t hang yourself sissy. Anyways, the tree’s made of a low pile plush carpet with sisal rope wrapped ‘round the suppurrt legs, a sisal mat built into the base and a sisal pedestal on the top shelf. Whether kitty’s a vertical or horizontal scratcher, this cat tree can satisfy both. We took a vote and decided to give the Yaheetech 62” Cat Tree 3 paws up and mommy gives it a thumb up. The price of $65.99 is purretty reasonable fur a nice size cat tree. And you know every kitty deserves their very own cat tree, right? Guess I’s gonn go finish mine’s brekky now and maybe spend a little time on the tree later. See ya’ll soon. 

 

Till the next time…………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

  • Nice tree ladies….you have several trees now in your apartment – hard to imagine having multiple trees here and I’m in a house! The tree I have is large though and I do love hanging out on it or in it – even the “little” platforms and cubby holes work for me when I curl up and I’m 22 lbs. Hope you still have room for your trees after all your stuff is unpacked. You did a good review for the product!

    Hugs, Teddy

    • Fanky fanks Teddy. We donated the small brown tree we had in the dinin’ room to a lesss furtunate kitty. We know what it’s like to want a tree but not be able to affurd one, so we passed along the blessing. Mommy says ifin we don’t use this one it’ll be donated too. But, we do have purrlenty of room, mommy made sure befur agreein’ to do the review. And she did have in mind that we could donate it as well. Glad you like your tree and it’s purrlenty big enuff. Big hugs

  • Cat tree stability is a problem for average sized kitties, too. My smallish Persians (4,2, 4.5 kilos/ 9 pounds 6 ounces, 9 pound 9 ounces) have knocked theirs over when they take a fli=ying leap onto it during those crazy runs cats do. This one looks like a winner! Thanks for the review!

    • You’re right, but we would say that the boys at 9 lbs. would be on the larger size, just cuz of their boxy frame. Mommy’s really careful ’bout the trees we use cuz of that knockin’ ’em over thing. And this one is great, ‘specially with that extra stabilizing strap that can be attached to the wall. Big hugs

      • The cat I had before them weighed more (23 pouinds 8 ounces or so) than the two of them together, I view them as little cats! (Louie the ginger cat was a neutered ginger tabbycat male I got at the local shelter.) I think they are more in the average cat size, though. On the other hand, I bet they would be a disaster to newly planted trees!

        • Yeah, we sometimes furget what normal size kitties weigh. Lexi weighed in at 30 pounds befur she got sick and me Dezi averages 23 to 25 pounds. Raena’s the smallest kitty mommy can ‘member, and she’s still growin’, so we don’t yet know how big she’ll get. MOL Big hugs

          • The typical weight, I think, is 10 pounds +/-, but that doesn’t take into account kitties like yours and the late Louie the ginger cat.

            While I like the large kitties because all I’ve had contact with had wonderfully friendly, almost dog-like personalities, the smaller guys have their sweet qualities, too.

  • I was frustrated that they didn’t list weight limits on all the trees. They broke it down to each component for the taller tree – but not for this one or the smaller ones. And since my cats are a bit … value-sized, it’s something I have to keep in mind!

    • Yeah awnty Kat, that happens and sometimes, we think companies fudge the nummers too. Mommy looks at the fotos and the size of the base to help determine the stability of a tree. And usually those with cutesy baskets and ramps are only good fur smaller kitties. This one would work great fur Bear and Ellie. Big hugs

  • Wowy, it looks like you have your very own jungle now in your home with all kinds of branches and perches to climb on and spy birdies from through the window. I think every pussycat needs their very own tree. I sleep on the very top platform of my tree that has a view of the hummy feeder and my backyard. You will have a great time exploring your tree, I just know it! Hugs and luvs.
