Inexpensive cat condo

I stumbled across this cat condo on eBay - I thought the price was pretty good compared to most I've seen (even after shipping - especially within Canada), so I went ahead and ordered one. I hope eBay links are allowed :)

FYI this merchant also sells on Amazon.ca, but their current eBay price is much cheaper, at least for this particular item. I hope my cats like it!

I took a look at your kitty condo on eBay. It looks as if it could be fairly substantial, and be able to take a bit of punishment, especially with the legs set up the way they are. It will withstand the cats running and jumping at the condo from a distance, like ours do, and break the legs off. I would expect your 2 will enjoy the kitty condo especially if you're able to put it in front of a window. The price looks excellent. Let us know what the crew think of it when you get it set up, and what your thoughts are of it also.

I've had the cat condo a little over a week now, and it's working pretty well, so far. Newton likes to lounge on the perch - all the scratching posts and the little hanging ball get a lot of use. The little 'rooms' themselves aren't used as much, but they do dart in and out of them sometimes during playtime.

The structure rocks a bit when the cats are jumping on or off, but it stays in place. I'm pretty happy with it (especially for the price).

And now that I've added cat walkways in this room as well, it should make for a pretty fun place to hang out :)

that's quite a nice one. When I get rich or have a few extra $$, there is a small business here that makes nice cat trees in whatever size, shape colour you want.

This is AWESOME! I've never seen a cat condo that cheap. Let alone a double tower one. A great find! Thank you for sharing this. I'm going to bookmark the link.
