This is the best cat furniture. Large beds and rest areas allow big kitties (or multiple ones) to lounge, stretch, and play! Our All Natural Thick Sisal Rope is just what your kitty wants to dig his claws into. Our premium handmade high quality cat furniture is made from scratch right here in the U.S.A. and requires no assembly - we do all the solid building for you. Because this furniture is handmade and not "modular", you'll get the sturdiest upright post that can be climbed up, scratched at, slept in, and peered out from. A real look-out tower for your kitty(s). We use solid pine poles in our construction along with heavy duty screws and bolts to build a piece of furniture that is more furniture than scratching post. But, it is a piece of furniture meant to be scratched - just what kitty ordered. This particular unit contains one bed, one tunnel, and one cradle plus 24" of all natural sisal rope for scratching. It stands 54" tall on a 2' x 2' base and comes in a beige color.

Why two stars then? The finish on the upholstering was just miserable. Not sure where the picture got to (I'll dig it up if it seems I'm not to be taken seriously otherwise*), but when it arrived there were half and quarter-driven staples all over the place, occasionally leaving a sharp bit entirely exposed. They're fairly heavy staples, and they were frequently sticking in places a cat is liable to engage directly with his head/eyes, including the window in the tube. Over the course of an hour or so, I ran my fingers again and again over the entirety of the tower, finally removing at least a dozen staples. I then spent another hour that night, and a few more over the course of the next few days checking again and again --though I think I only found one additional staple. I don't have to tell anyone reading this how concerning this is for a pet owner.
From reading the reviews, you would get the impression that this was more or less an isolated incident, but considering how small the company is and how likely it is that some customers never even thought to run their hands over the entirety of the tower, I find that fairly difficult to believe. More likely, someone involved in the manufacturing isn't as capable with a staple gun, or just got lazy with the QA. Did that person learn? Did they quit? Are they even aware of it? No idea. What I do know, though, is that this thing is enormous and not something you want to try to ship back... dear God, what a nightmare.
So I'm not quite sure a single recommendation is possible here. If you're careful, attentive, and a bit neurotic, I still have the feeling that this is essentially the best tower available on Amazon. Just be sure you really, really run your fingers through the whole thing a couple of times; and I maintain, it may be the case that there's not an off stitch anywhere on the tower you receive. But if you aren't really up to that, or you don't want to risk it, my recommendation is to just avoid this brand altogether for now; again, these things aren't t-shirts you're unhappy with where you can just throw them back in the box and hand it off to your UPS person on your way to work. Seriously, I really wouldn't bank on a couple of exchanges to make this a purchase work out; I'm 6'3" and 230lbs and it was unbelievably awkward for me to carry around in the box.
As a quick side note, I only paid $130 for this, here on Amazon, just a few months ago. It may be worth keeping your eyes on the price and biting only at something much better than the current $200-$300 tag. Obviously, I have no information as to whether it's actually liable to fall back down again or not, just something I thought I'd pass along.
To beat a dead horse just once more: it's an amazing piece of furniture to provide some personal space, ongoing adventure, and scratching base for your cats, but I simply can't not worry at the thought of such a potentially dangerous mistake making it off the floor and into my living room --and again, I only ever caught it because I'm far, far more cautious about these sorts of things than the average person; to a fault actually. I really hope Molly and her friends step it up a little bit; it's simply not that much more work to prevent this sort of thing, and they really don't deserve this kind of money for their products until people can be confident that it's a non-issue.
I'm happy to answer any further questions, if anyone has any.
Thanks for reading!
The one minor complaint I have is how it was shipped - while I am happy it comes pre-assembled so there's no setup required, it's not wrapped in plastic or anything but just bare in a large box. It was delivered to us on a rainy day and by the time we got back home to open it the box was soaked and the tower was wet; this could have easily gotten into the cardboard material and made it soft/saggy. The top part of the tunnel dips a tiny bit which we think may be because of this but luckily it's hardly noticeable and still supports his weight just fine when hes standing on it. I would recommend checking the weather before ordering, and if Molly and Friends is reading this, you should totally wrap your towers in plastic inside the box to protect from this!
Summary: excellent product, shipping not safe from elements and could use more protection.
