Does any one have this cat tree?

Ace Bayou Small Cat Tree at PETCO

There were a few reviews, all were positive. I'm shopping on Petsmart - there's a sale today. None of the toys got very good reviews. Any good suggestions? How many toys do I really need?

I have a da bird in my cart and also a scratching post. This one http://www.petco.com/product/12529/S...lies_Furniture

Other suggestions?

I don't have that cat tree, but it seems like a good deal. I'd make sure you're ok with its dimensions, or be willing to get a bigger tree when your kitty gets older. The scratcher is an excellent choice! It's tall and stable, so your kitty can grow with it. It seems long lasting, too.

Toys! Yes, Da bird & its feather replacement (refill) is the best. Here's a list of what I'd buy:

-Da bird refills (they can tear thru them within a week, lol)
-Laser toy
-Another wand toy, like the mousie at the end or the "cat dancer" (wire w/cardboard bait)
-Rattling fuzzy mice
-Bergan cat scratcher (track w/ball that goes round 'n round)
-Rattling / jingly /crinkle ball
-Fur (bunny-fur?) ball
-cardboad boxes (save these!)
-paper/shopping bag including those re-usable 99-cent bags
-crinkle tunnel

A lot of stuff I just found rather expensive at big box stores and found them surprisingly cheaper at smaller, local pet stores. They also had a wider assortment of quality toys rather than the stuff you see at petsmart/co. Also, cats have varying personalities like humans, so you may just have to buy random stuff, or find simple household items that work best for your kitty. Toys can be switched around maybe every week or two, to prevent boredom, but wand/interactive type toys need to always be locked or tucked securely away at all times.

I bought this one from Amazon for $110 total (includes shipping in that price). Plus, folded up fleece blankets make the BEST cat beds. I left one on the floor and 2 cats fought over it!!

Thanks for your input. The tree is 55" I think I saw. That seems big enough. If not, well, we can always get another later.

Thanks for the suggestions. I did get a laser pointer thing. I'll get the Bergan thing, too. I have some toys around here already from my other cat that she never used. I'll have to gather them up.

the tree description says it has sisal posts so you might not need the other scratching post . . .

Bon.

The Petco Bungalow and the other one I linked to say they have 'soft lamb fur fabric.' Can you comment on that? I thought they would be carpeted.

Were any lambs harmed in the making of this cat tree?? Wondering how cleanable it would be if someone barfed on it.

How would you know? I'm pretty sure at that price it's not real lambs wool.

I've been measuring. I have no wall space next to a window to accommodate any of these. They would have to go over the window and only the first one I linked to wouldn't land on a heat vent. Oh, and 55 inches isn't as tall as I thought. You guys probably already knew that!
