Tall Cat Tree Houses

Do you want t tall cat tree but don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars? Here is a sturdy, tall cat tree house at an affordable price! A tall cat tree is beneficial for cats giving them a sense of security as well as a place to play and get exercise. I was amazed at how expensive cat trees are in stores so I was thrilled to find one! The Go Pet Club 72 Inch Cat Tree is the best I have found and my cats all love it! This is the best tall cat tree house on the market today at an affordable price. It is an Amazon’s Choice product, very popular with customers and is now being imitated by other companies. There are over 5,900 reviews of this specific cat tree on Amazon.

Go Pet Club 72 Inch Cat Tree

This Go Pet Club cat tree is about 6 feet tall with 10 scratching posts, two apartments, three platforms at the top as well as dangling toys and ladders. I have been very surprised how well this cat tree house has stood up to my 4 cats. Two of my cats are 15 pound rambunctious boys who roughhouse and tear up and down the tree.

Even the dangling mouse toys are still attached over a year later! That is impressive! The apartments and platforms are covered in carpet and the posts are covered in sisal rope which is the favorite cat scratching post material. Having this large cat tree with 10 scratching posts built in has kept my cats from most all scratching on other surfaces around the house. The cat tree is like a grand scratching post land with so many options!

What Kind of Cat Could Use the Go Pet Club 72 Inch Cat Tree?

A tall cat tree is beneficial for cats giving them a sense of security as well as a place to play and get exercise. I was amazed at how expensive cat trees are in stores so I was thrilled to find one that is tall, sturdy and affordable! This is not the most cushy cat tree. There are brands with fancy, padded platforms and beds,. If you have a cat with sore joints that needs extra padding then you may want to add padding or get a different model, but for most cats, the fleecy carpet covering is enough. This is a good cat tree for active, energetic cats, large cats and those that need a tall tree for exercise or a high vantage point.  My boys especially like laying on the top platforms and watching birds out the window.

Cost of Other Large Cat Trees Compared to Go Pet Club 72 Inch Cat Tree

If you want to buy a cat tree you will pay at least $200-$300 for a cat tree this large. Many stores don’t offer a cat tree with this many platforms and options. For closer to $70-$80 (depending on color and model) you can get a higher quality, tall cat tree with more options for your cat to get exercise, sleep and feel safe. Sometimes different colors go on sale. Right now, this same 72 inch tree is on sale in the black color for $10 less! I bet you can’t find a high quality, 6 foot tall cat tree for this price anywhere else.

Downsides of This Cat Tree

My cats don’t use the ladders but they could be easily removed with one screw. If you had kittens however, the ladders may be necessary or get used more at least. There is not a lot of padding on the platforms, just the fleece carpet.

Benefits of This Cat Tree

  • It is affordable and a much better deal than most cat trees available!
  • It is tall at 6 feet!
  • It is sturdy and has held up well with my four cats.
  • It is large enough for even large cats to get some exercise and have room to play.
  • It is nice looking and my cats all love it.
  • It has 10 scratching posts and provides a forest of scratching options for my kitties!
  • You can get this with free shipping on Amazon Prime.

Is This Cat Tree Stable?

You might wonder if this cat tree is stable since it is so tall. I wondered the same thing! I am happy to report it is very stable! It has never tipped over even though my large boys run up and down and play fight on it! Don’t let stability be a concern here the Go Pet Club Cat Tree is very stable.

      Hello Mercy,

      I hope your friend’s cat feels better soon. A cat tree is something most all cats like. All 4 of mine use this one. Even my fat, lazy girl likes to climb up and sit at the very top and sleep on the perch.

      Thank you for stopping by and for recommending this post,
      Jessica

    Wow that’s a very impressive cat tree! I had 2 beautiful exotic shorthair cats who sadly have passed now but they would have loved something like this! I did have a cat tree for them but it wasn’t this impressive and they were big cats too.
    The sisal rope is a really good idea for scratching on as it stops them from scratching on the furniture! and I like the boxed compartments too so they can hide or sleep. Thanks for a great review, I have bookmarked this product for when I get more cats lol.

      Hello Helen,

      Yes, I was quite impressed this tree worked so well with such a reasonable price!
      I am very sorry your cats passed away. That is so sad but I hope you get more kitties someday.

      Thanks for your comments, and for stopping by!

      Hello Fleur,

      Yes, it comes in pieces and you have to put it together. It is a bit of a project but not too hard. It comes with all the pieces. My husband put it together and calls it the Cat Mahal too!

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi,

    I have been looking for Cat tree houses for some time but haven’t come across one of my liking. This one does look to be fair and I think my cats would love it. The only question I would have asked is the stability of it but it seems like its safe and okay to have in the house.

    Thanks for the review and I might check it out, one final question though as I’ve got more money to put towards is their any better quality cat tree houses you would recommend.

      Hi Joshua,

      I wondered about that as well since something so tall would seem to be unstable. I can tell you it has never tipped over though and even though I have large cats (16 pounds) who run up and down it, it has never come close to tipping over.

      No, there is not another cat tree I would recommend unless someone had a lot of money to spend on a specialty item. For a general purpose cat tree, this is the one I would (and did) get!

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Wow, Jessica! Two apartments and 10 scratching posts! That’s awesome!

    My son’s cat tree is not as big as this one, and his cats have stopped using it. Any ideas why that could happen?

    This tall cat tree looks like a really good deal and appears well-made. But, I’m always concerned about a tall cat tree getting tipped over by rambuctious felines, and someone getting hurt. Does this cat tree ever get tippy when yours use it?

    Thank you for sharing this,
    Laura

      Hello Laura,
      I wondered if it could tip over at first too. It has never tipped over or even looked like it could tip over. The base is wide enough this just doesn’t seem to be a problem. I have large boys (16 pounds) and if they can’t tip it over roughhousing, I think everyone else should be fine with their cats as well.

      I do not know why your cats stopped using your tree. You could try a cat nip spray. Just spray it on and they will be attracted to it.

      Thanks for stopping by,

    Hi Jessica!
    Thanks for sharing this wonderful and inexpensive find. You’re right when you say that most other cat trees of this size are 3 times the price, I’ve been looking for awhile. It’s good to know it’s been tested and approved by your own kitties! Thanks again for sharing.

      Hello Kyle Ann,

      I was quite surprised at this price and even more surprised that it has been sturdy and held up for such a price! I see now that the cat trees in most stores are a rip off! Of course you have to put this together, but it is just putting the screws and bolts in which come included.

      Thanks!
      Jessica
