Armarkat Cat Tree Furniture Condo
Overall, the Amarkat Cat Tree Furniture Condo excels in quality. I could not be more pleased with its features, from the neutral color design to the many perch choices or to the lounging hammock and cat condo. Cats will have much to love about this amazing tree and may not even want to come down until they detect mealtime. If you, like me, are searching for a stable, comfortable, easily assembled cat tree from a reputable company, then you can’t go wrong with The Amarkat Cat Tree Furniture Condo model A7202.
Selecting a Cat Tree for your Large Cat
Loving and living with a larger cat can be something that takes some adjustment whether the cat is a larger breed such as a Maine Coon or just an over-weight but much loved tabby. I want my larger cat to have the opportunity to stretch out, leap up and snooze in comfort regardless of his size. The search for a cat tree capable of supporting the weight of a larger cat proved quite a challenge for me. Too big, too small, too wobbly or garish in color. It was essential that the structure be sound and stable with multiple “lounging” levels that a larger sized cat could reach with ease. I was also hoping to find one with at least one scratching post. Of course, all that would ultimately need to sit within home surroundings without standing out. The Amarkat Cat Tree Furniture Condo met all my and my cats needs.
For twenty years Amarkat has been a leader of quality pet-centric products, using only environmentally friendly materials harmless to pets and humans. For an animal lover such as myself, this was a big plus. In recognition of their standards, Amarkat has been awarded the TUV Environmental Quality Control test certificate. The company also stands behind their products with a six-month warranty on any manufacturer defect. These assurances gave me peace of mind in selecting this product. I have made purchases before and found that some companies do not stand behind their products. I wanted to support a company that would in turn support me.
The Amarkat Cat Tree Furniture Condo is offered in a neutral-beige that will suit most any decor and color scheme. It doesn’t matter if your home is Shabby Chic or Early American, the faux-fur carpet, hammock and sisal rope elements blend seamlessly to unify the structure nicely with any environment.
Ease of Assembly
Assembly is a snap. The instruction manual presented clear visual diagrams rather than wordy step-by-step, hard to follow directions. A very nice touch was including all tools necessary. At just over 50 pounds and standing 72″ high, the completed tree will require heavy lifting to maneuver, so plan ahead and begin building at or very near its final destination. If space allows, a window location is ideal for any cat to take advantage of natural light and nature’s view. My cat loves to sit and watch the birds and squirrels as they go about their day’s business.
The design’s stand-out feature has to be the quantity and placement of its perches. Amarkat has provided 7 levels to satisfy the most demanding of occupants. Between the base and the 72” mark, any cat can choose a perfect vantage point for bird watching with enough platform area to accommodate that midday nap. The distance between the perches is not too far to make it difficult for a cat to hop from one to another.
The hammock provided with the Amarkat Cat Tree Furniture Condo is set low to the ground for ease of access. Durable and inviting, any cat seeking a cozy safe-place will put the hammock to good use. As it is closest to floor level any cat that has difficulty climbing should find getting in and out a breeze.
The foundational condo is supported by four pillars for stability and security. A larger entrance and smaller “window” port allow for easy access to the sanctuary while offering sufficient viewpoints. Cats that love the security of a well-placed box or laundry basket will find the condo a step up in accommodations. The doorway is large enough to accommodate a generously sized cat and makes vacuuming inside simple.
Sisal Rope Posts
The posts – all 10 of them – are tightly wrapped with sisal rope, a favorite of felines everywhere. I have found that as cats exercise, their innate desire to scratch and stretch on well-built scratching posts ultimately reduces damage to the corners of my regular furniture. With 10 posts on various levels from the floor up to select from, this urge will always be satisfied without harm to costly belongings.
Ease of Cleaning
The Amarkat Cat Tree Furniture Condo is a breeze to clean. Any standard vacuum with upholstery attachment will make quick work of loose debris be it cat hair or treat crumbs. A mild pet safe detergent, sponge along with minimal elbow-grease can blot up any stains, keeping the tree looking new for many years.
