I have to admit, when I brought home the first cat tree for them (it's literally like a tree!), Doodles didn't know what to do with it. She couldn't quite fit her fat cat behind on it. Hehe.
When I brought home the house (yes, that literally looks like a house!), the cats ATTACKED it. To this day it's still probably their favorite spot!
The first cat tree we bought Gerona didn't like because she was too heavy and it wobbled every time she tried to climb to the top. So, it became solely GALINA'S tree. But this tree is more sturdy and even though Gerona sometimes has trouble fitting into the lower platform, she manages.
Sheryl, most cats like cat trees because it gives them a place to perch up high and watch everything around them. But, you could be right in that your cats simply might not like it. Nothing to worry about, as long as they're happy with things how they are.
If I remember right, you have older cats as well, which means they don't have all that energy that they had when they were younger and might simply be too lazy at this point to climb up a tree.
Thanks for the comments on the tree, everyone.
The next tree on my list is a floor-to-ceiling tree.
It's really awesome and I have a strong feeling the girls would REALLY love that one! But, it costs 128€ and I'm still saving up the cash to get it.
Isn't that just life, though?
We saw the tree we just bought in November last year and only just bought it now because we finally had some extra money--and this tree was only 52.90€. Along with it, though, we bought a kitty tunnel which SHOULD be coming in this upcoming week. I've got my fingers crossed it comes in soon and the girls like it as well.
