I purchased this at Ocean State Job Lot for $12.99 after years of resisting the urge to buy it for $19.99 at Walmart. It is definitely not worth $37.75 - in fact, I could not believe it when I saw that was the actual list price on Amazon. Do not pay more than $19.99 for this. I wouldn't even pay more than $15.
It is very large and roomy, which is the only good thing I can say about it. The frame is made of those cheap plastic tubes, the foundation for most of this inferior cat furniture sold at Walmart and Target. Included is the slip cover, which zippers tightly around the frame.
My major complaint is the hammock ceiling. Maybe I snapped the pieces together wrong but the hammock does not look as pictured on the box. It does not curve perfectly. Also, when an average sized male cat lays on the hammock, it sinks pretty low.
All five cats have taken turns using the inside but it's really nothing more than a glorified cardboard box. The baby loves playing with it. She wrestles with it fighting to destroy the feather toy. Luckily those attachments snap back on with these sort of items, so it's no big deal when they "break".
For $40, you could use that money to invest in something more durable and carpeted. Ocean State Job Lot sells 2-3 foot cat trees for $40, and they are thick, heavy, and durable. Anyone can create a hideaway for their cats need for privacy. You don't have to pay $40 for one. I also find it disgusting that this costs more than any one of the sisal wave scratching loungers sold at Petsmart and Walmart.Read more ›
To my surprise, the hammock house is still fully intact after being used by the cats and abused by the weather conditions. I should also note about the overall quality of this is that it's proven to support the weight of numerous cats cuddling on the hammock roof for extended periods of time. While the inside houses a number of cats, there always seems to be about 4 or 5 cats on top, and the structure has yet to falter.
For the price I paid, and the use that it's had, I'd say it's worth the money. I'm just glad to see it got used after our kitten "grew" out of it.

I don't know how SmartyKat keeps doing it, but this is an amazing cheap piece of cat furniture. I was doubtful about it when I was putting it together - it seemed really flimsy. Read morePublished on March 24, 2013 by K. Dearing
