There are some other things you could try besides a cat tree. I just discovered these funky suction-cup window hammocks and totally want one (or 3):

Wall shelves are also cheap and easy to put up. I bought some sturdy ones from Ikea and put them in a series of steps going to the top of one of my bookshelves. It's one of Peppercorn's favourite hangouts. Here's a website to give you an idea (with much fancier and more expensive shelves, mind you!):
