I wonder if frans is any good.

It's obviously not as good quality as other makes, but it is very stable & the cats love it.

Re: Wanted Big cat tree


With mine, the threads split during assembly which made the top half very wobbly and unstable so Graham bolted the whole thing to the wall so that it didnt come crashing down ontop of dear old Winston.

I have one from this range too Elaine. I love it and so do the cats/kittens and it is sooo sturdy and is standing the test of time. I did get a Lidl one but it really did not survive very long and has now been relegated to the stud run as it looks so shabby

Re: Wanted Big cat tree


I was going to post about Zooplus. I have one from them, it is excellent, so reasonable and has lasted years. Sometimes there are 3 cats on it at once! they love it! As Dawn says, the service is excellent too, can't praise them enough.

Re: Wanted Big cat tree


hiya i know this post is really old, but i bought Giant one from Zooplus about 7weeks ago?
and its a bit too big for my new place AND Tay never uses it so its just taking up room to be honest! it cost me like 85 and im going to sell half of it for about 20/25 (its the bigger half) if your intrested, im going to put it on ebay in a few weeks
