There are many good reasons why a cat tree is a perfect investment to make for your pet cat, who is after all your buddy and your companion. It’s a piece of furniture that is truly the cat’s own, and it’s made just for them. Meaning, they can climb, stretch, scratch, and play on their own kitty condo! It helps indoor cats in particular stay active, since we all know that cats can get downright LAZY as they get older. (I’m speaking from experience. Our Milo boy takes a good bit of convincing to play now, but as a kitten he was a little crazy man! Haha)
Today, we’re featuring some products from Amazon Basics. Why? Amazon has created some truly outstanding new cat trees, and what impresses me the most is that the prices remain very reasonable. There are also a wide variety of types of cat trees – from a small and simple cat condo with hammock to one that is far fancier, with lots of fun features for your cats to explore. Many of them incorporate scratching posts right in the structure of the cat tree itself, meaning it’s a 2-in-1 product. (Especially if you have a small space, having a cat tree that has scratching posts mean you’ll not need to buy those separately, and thereby you’ll be saving space! Always important.)
We’ll start with the smallest (and smallest priced too!) and end up with the biggest, bad boy cat tree that you can find when shopping Amazon Basics. And if you have one of these beautiful cat trees, please do leave a message and let us know what you think. Now, on to the cat trees, cat lovers…
P.S. Each of the cat trees and towers we chose ALL have a 4.5/5 star rating with thousands of reviews! We only want to recommend cat furniture that meets a high standard, and that you and your cat pals will truly love. These cat trees are recommended for small to medium sized cats. Have a huge cat like we do? Then read our article about the Best Cat Trees for Large Cats to find the right furniture for your buddy.
Amazon Basics Cat Tree/Tower with Hammock
AmazonBasics Cat Condo Tree Tower With Hammock Bed And Scratching Post – 16 x 20 x 16 Inches, Grey
Current price $40.99 with Free Shipping Please note that prices can change at any time.
Why I love this cat tree:
* It is a sweet, and simple design. Sturdily constructed with two large jute-covered scratching posts that are easy for kitty to reach and enjoy.
* The hammock! Cats love to fall asleep in a hammock, and this one has a large hammock that your cat can crawl into and relax in. And do what they love to do most: sleep away the day!
* Durable, long-lasting construction
* a great, multi-purpose cat tree that allows your cat to rest or play (there’s a little attached toy ball!) OR scratch away on the well-made scratching posts.
* Comes in 2 colour options: Grey or Beige
* The price is a great one! Under $40.
* Currently is rated 4.5 stars out of 5
Amazon Basics Medium Cat Condo with 4 scratching posts and top Perch
AmazonBasics Medium Cat Condo Activity Tree Tower with Scratching Post Toy – 16 x 16 x 31 Inches
Current price $56.99 with Free Shipping
Price is current at time of writing, but can change at any time.
I have featured this particular cat tree a LOT here at CatTrees.ca! And I have many reasons for doing so:
* A well-constructed cat tree with a total of 4 scratching posts! That’s a lot of scratching for our cat pals.
* Different spots for cats to relax and lounge, including a sturdy top perch. Cats love to go up high, so that’ll likely be the most popular spot on this cat tree to relax and rest!
* The reviews on this one are consistently high – 4.5 out of 5 stars.
* Some of the words reviewers use to speak of this cat condo are: “Easy to assemble”, “Carpet on the cat tree is soft”, and “Solidly built.”
For large cat owners: I did read a few reviews saying this is a better option for small to average size cats. If you have a big cat (like we do!) we are working on another post just for you and your large cats.
Amazon Basics Cat Tree/tower with Double Sided Cat Cube or Cave
AmazonBasics Cat Tree Tower with Cube – 29 x 26 x 51 Inches, Beige
Current price $125.99 with Free Shipping
Please note that prices are current at time of writing, but can change at any time.
Okay, now things are getting interesting! This amazing cat tower has lots of features, such as:
* Pretty much an indoor playground for cats!
* Lots of spaces for kitty to play on or lounge on
* Lots of levels for your cat to climb – and climbing is one of a cat’s favourite ways to exercise! That’s why they gravitate to real trees outside, so this will replicate that indoors.
* The cat cave! They call it a Cat Cube, but I think a cave sounds even cooler. With two entries, this is a fun spot for your cat to run into and hide, OR to curl up in and happily fall asleep.
* Again, well constructed and sturdy.
* Lots of scratching posts built right in
* A great perch at the top for your kitty to hang out on
* Consistently high ratings – 4.5 out of 5. Reviewers said things like: “Sturdy, heavy and stable”, “Easy to put together”, and “No tools required to put together.”
Again though – not the best for big cats. More for an average sized cat.
Okay, that ends today’s offerings for awesome Amazon Basics cat trees. We sincerely hope you found a great cat tree for your pet today. Happy cats mean happy cat lovers. Meow!
