I bought this perch to replace one that I got from Petsmart. The old one is shredding carpet and showing long nylon filaments from being scratched so much. Petsmart doesn't have any perches to my liking right now, so I decided to try Cat Condos.
Cats are resistant to change, and it took mine three days before they accepted this new perch. Now they freely play around it, stretch out on the top level, and snooze on the bottom level. What they don't do is use the middle level, except as a way to reach the top. And they do not scratch on the sisal rope. Too late, I realized the sisal rope should be located on the bottom of the pole, not the top. The cats scratch while on the floor, and don't use the middle perch. Instead, they have started to shred the carpeted lower part already.
Another idea for improvement is to make this perch heavier. My cats like to play tag around it, and they upset it frequently. They never upset the old Petsmart perch, which is noticeably heavier than this one.
Because the round middle level is supported by two posts, it sits firmly and give a secure feeling. But the top level is supported by only one post, and it is not as firmly anchored, resulting in a bit of flex. I don't think this will result in the top coming loose, but I'd like a more secure feeling, and maybe the cats would as well.
Finally, while unpacking this perch my hand caught on a carpet staple along the edge of the top portion. It was invisible to the eye, but not the hand. I removed it with pliers so the cats wouldn't catch on it.
All in all, this is not a bad perch. But it could benefit from some design changes. I'm going to get the Cat Condos 'Cat Scratch and Lounge'. It seems to have a better design that addresses my concerns.
